Family photo

Daren took all these pics of us! Cutting off Shelby

Still cutting her off

Most of her

Yeah, finally all of us in the picture, it was quite comical.
I got a little emotional today, thinking of the ones who
don't have families, or gifts, or all the blessings I have.
I'm so grateful for my loving husband, & beautiful, smart daughter
The tree is up, lit & ready to go, we'll finish decorating tomorrow.
Hope everyone has as much fun trimming the tree as we do.

Shelby & her classmate Danielle She also did mini golf, decorated a box, hula hoop, obstacle course, she had alot of fun. Part 3 of the field trip was a visit to city hall to meet the mayor..... The mayor couldn't come he had an important meeting. So we met Mayor Pro-Tem Shelby was pretty disappointed. Then the bus ride back to school. I had a good time, as most of the kids did too!

Here's the final results of making our pizzas Shelby's cheese!

Aurea's sauage

Veonna's sausage, Natalie's cheese. It was yummy! I wanted the Happy Joe's special (canadian bacon & sauerkraut) but that wasn't an option, oh well, it was free! :)

This past Friday night after bingo Shelby stayed with Nana & Pop in the "bus" (the RV) so we went to see a movie, on opening night @ 10:00pm. We were afraid we would fall asleep, because that's when we go to bed. I said to Big Daddy "Huh, so this is what young couples do on a Friday night?" I think I have forgotten what it was like before Shelby. Anyways the movie was The Blind Side, it was soooooo good! We both loved it! Great football stuff, humor, heartache, oh my! I laughed, I cried, my heart hurt, & so much joy.
Loved it, loved it, loved it! I would highly recommend it to anyone, go see it!

Oh man it's Santa, you know what that means? The end!

Pop won bingo once, Big Daddy won twice. Big Daddy got the dog for Shelby & a sparkly bracelet. Shelby was thrilled. We had a great time!

Lunch W/Shelby

Nana & Shelby

Shelby & Pop (I loved this one too!) They were both laughing so hard, they both had their eyes closed too funny!

Shelby in her natural habitat @ school sitting @ her table.

Shelby & Chavez from her class. We (Nana & I) were taking pictures & Chavez decided he was going to be in the picture. Cute. We went to school today to have lunch with Shelby & all her friends. We took Subway with us. The kids all want to sit with us because it's the only table that gets to talk, which is funny because they have about 10 minutes to eat. It's fun kind of like being a rock star.

Dance clinic!

Shelby went to the West High dance clinic @ West High (oddly enough) She had a great time except when we got there after 4 hrs. of dance clinic she was pooped. It didn't help that it was like 85 degrees in there, I was enough warm (not hot, but warm) Daren & Shelby were melting :)

Sweaty, & tired but.....

still able to look cute & strike a pose!!!
