my new shoes

I love boots, but I am just not a boot person. I love fuzzy fur shoes though and my mom bought me these today. Aren't they adorable? I am going to wear them over to Kristen and Daniel's on Thanksgiving. Love them!

Girl Scout Mother Daughter Tea

Yesterday was Emma's Girl Scout Mother Daughter Tea event so I took both girls. It was a lot of fun. There were several troops there and Emma was part of the color guard at the beginning of their GS ceremony. I'm so proud of her. She really loves Girl Scouts.

I didn't take a lot of pictures because I completely forgot I had my camera in my purse.

They had cute little croissant sandwiches and tons of tiny sweets for the girls. Both of them had sugar cookie tea which was pretty good and did taste just like a sugar cookie!

Celestial Seasonings actually have a lot holiday teas that sound good. Candy Cane Lane, Sugar Plum Spice and Nutcracker Sweet.

Speaking of Nutcracker....I'm taking both girls to see the Nutcracker ballet in the beginning of December. We are going with Girl Scouts, so that should be a lot of fun. I love The Nutcracker and it's been a couple of years since I've taken Emma.

Our New Family Member

We decided to get the kids a new pet for Christmas. We have had hamsters and didn't want to go that route again so we looked into rats and guinea pigs. I actually like rats better but I fell in love with a particular guinea pig at Petco and had to have him. Right now!!

I was afraid that if we waited someone else would buy him and he was so adorable, I just couldn't take that chance! We actually went to the pet store 5 times in 3 days before we finally bought him.

So here he is, our new family pet,

Scotty Ann Furhair Bagby!

I love him so much. He is the sweetest little guinea pig. He loves to run and he has several different noises he makes. He purrs, wheet wheets, sings, chirps. The cutest is when he is happy and purrs. When guinea pigs are happy they definitely let you know it! And they do these cute little jumps called popcorning when they are happy.

Even though he is supposed to be a family pet, he is my baby and I look forward to seeing him every morning. He sits on my lap and watched tv with me. lol

I would definitely recommend a guinea pig as a pet, they are so sweet!

Halloween 2009

This year we spent Halloween over at Kristen and Daniel's. We all took the kids trick-or-treating together and then threw a Halloween party for the kids and adults.

Here is Jeff and Heather all dressed up. I love Heather's costume, she looked so cute!!

My little witch Sara.

My mom and the girls made the cupcakes and Kristen made these awesome peanut butter cookie things that were soooo good!

Daniel made sure the liquor cabinet was well stocked! lol

Sara, Katie (Kristen's daughter) and Emma, my gypsy.

All of the kids right before trick-or-treating.

Who could this be?


Nurse Shannon.

And her patient Fletcher...he had a bad accident at work that day.

Put on Thriller and the kids started dancing. The room was totally dark except for the black light.

Me and Daniel!

Me and Chris.

Me with Jen.

Me with Kristen.

Kristen was a cherry pie and Daniel was the cherry pie eating contest winner. lol

Me and Jeff.

Jen and Shawn.

All of the guys, except Aaron because he got there so late.

All of the girls.

Aaron finally got there!

Kristen and her brother Jeff.

My mom was there and took the girls home with her that night, Anthony spent the night at Kristen's with lil Daniel, and somewhere around 4:30 am I went to sleep in the guest room, and Aaron and Jeff crashed out about 5 am.

It's been a long time since we stayed up that late at a party!! We are too old for that! lol

It was a lot of fun, probably one of the best Halloween's I've ever had!

Fall Carnival

Sorry it's been so long since I've blogged. I haven't had the internet at my house and I can't say that I really miss it! I can access the internet on my Blackberry so it's not like I've been completely without.

Friday, October 30th the girls school had a fall carnival. My mom came and picked us up and we went to check it out. I am so glad that I bought our tickets in advance! I got twice as many as I would have if I bought them at the carnival.

Here is Emma and her friend Maggie. I handed over some tickets and the two of them went off to play games. Anthony ran into some of his friends too and he went off with them.

So it was just me, my mom and Sara.

I didn't get any pics of Anthony's turn at the dunk tank, but he hit the bullseye on his third try and dunked the teacher! lol

It was a lot of fun. Afterwards, my mom dropped me off at Kristen's and she took the kids home with her. Since we had the carnival to go to, we skipped Family Movie Night.
