Fun, Fun, and more Fun!!/And a suprise award!

We have had another busy week around here. My sister, Debbie and my niece, Hannah along with my nephew, Andrew came to visit for the week. It was so fun having them here. It is really nice to see the kids playing and forming bonds with their cousins. They don't live too close so anytime we can see them it is exciting. We went to build a bear and of course when we saw the cute University of Memphis t-shirts for the bears we had to get them. That was a special treat from Aunt Debbie. We went to Chuckie Cheese then to the Merry-go-round at the Galleria which is always a fun fiasco because everyone wants to ride the dragon.:)

Saturday we watched with great anticipation as the Memphis Tigers played UCLA, what a game! There was a lot of cheering, loud cheering going on around here. My husband is very funny about watching the Tigers. He never wants people to be over while he watches because if they lose he will have to be a "fake entertainer" :) He likes it to just be our little family and we do have fun. My sister took this picture right before the game started. Dallas our Lab just had to be in the middle, she is so sweet. Our Jack Russell just barked the whole time in the back ground.

We went to the Memphis campus today and wow what a busy place. People searching for shirts and anything blue to support the Tigers in tomorrow nights championship game against Kansas.

My other sister, Sandy, is the crafty one in the family but Debbie and I saw this on another blog and gave it a try. It was so simple. These were for teacher appreciation day at our church today I actually had a great time making them.

We joined WW again for the umpteenth time and had a pretty good first week. David lost 7lbs and I lost 4.8 hopefully and prayfully we will maintain a losing pace and get this much unwanted weight off. We shall see!!

I have not been blog lurking or commenting for a little over a week now and I went to one of my favorites and saw she had passed an award to me. Thanks so much Paige I feel the same way. Now I would like to pass it on to Jessica and Kelly.

Hope you all have a fabulous Week!!

Did the game make you cry last night?? It did me....My stomach hurt and had every emotion under the sun. My heart just broke for them at the end.

Still love my Tigers though!!
Have a great day!

What a busy time you've had! We can relate to your husband watching games. We love the OU Sooners and my husband gets incredibly nervous during any game. He prefers to watch them alone so no one sees him yelling or pacing the floor!!!

MOM said...

I know everyone is in mourning. I got up at 4 A.M. to watch. Great pictures, love the blue shirts. Take Care. We love you all,
Mom and Dad

Sounds like a wonderful day! Your kids are beautiful and I love your black Labrador, Dallas. We have a yellow Lab, Ecclesiastes. Because of him I have a special place in my heart for these dogs.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your blog design is simply beautiful.
In Him,
