Girls Night and Basketball Game

This past weekend I attended both.  Friday night my college roommates and I spent the night together at the Renaissance downtown Montgomery.  Instead of going out we opted to have a pajama party, play games and just hang out together.  Most people might think we are boring but we had the best time, as always.  I am extremely thankful for each of them and any time we get to spend together.  Next weekend we will get to have all our kids together too to begin celebrating birthdays!!
I love this picture.... how could I not have fun??

On Saturday we took the girls to Auburn Basketball Game with some of our cousins.  It was the most beautiful day.  We wallked all over campus, (which hopefully made up for all the junk I ate the night before), had a picnic, took a million pictures and enjoyed the game even though Auburn lost.  The girls were perfect angels.  They walked all over and played and even sat (mostly) for the game.  They maintained happy moods the whole day inspite of having no naps.  Adeline was enthralled by the players warming up.  She just wanted to sit and watch them play.  She had no interest in the coloring or face painting.  She is definitely her daddy's child.  I'll share all some of the pictures we took.




This is what I would call riding in style. (:  Lucky duck.
 Where we had our picnic... appropriate huh? ha ha

 Yes, our belly hung out all day... apparently our shirt is a little short. oops.


 Mary Selwyn wanted her face painted so bad.... then she screamed the whole time.  I guess the airbrushing made her nervous.  I gave her the option to only do one cheek but she insisted on two and screamed during the other cheek too. 
Shay and I attended almost every basketball game when we were in school and we were excited to watch a game in the brand new arena.  I love our new arena, however, the one complaint I have is that it doesn't allow much access to Aubie or the cheerleaders, which is what every kid really comes to see.  Adeline spent the whole game calling for Aubie. "Aubie, Aubie.  Aubie hold me" is all heard for the majority of the game.  Well we FINALLY got Aubie's attention and he was so sweet to walk up and see us.  Of course, Adeline was terrified once he finally got up there but the big girls LOVED him.

Worth the screaming??

Our Funny Valentines

Shay and I will be spending Valentine's Day with the little loves of our life.  They are so silly and funny and daily remind of us what unconditional love is.
Adeline is a camera hog.  For some reason she was squinting her eyes in every picture...she refused to make any other face.  Little stinker.
Mary Selwyn apparently practicing for America's Next Top Model with her fierce fish face.



Happy Valentine's Day all!  I know it is early but as usual we just couldn't wait.

A heart of thanksgiving

I don't know what the actual title of the song is but that is what I have when I hear her precious voice sing this!
