Fun Weekend!

Here is Britt cheering at the VARSITY GAME  last Friday!  We had a super fun weekend when our family (almost ALL of them) came down from Dallas for MHS homecoming!  We had lots of fun playing and moving furniture and eating Mexican Food!   We hope they come again really soon!!!!

She's SHY!

Britt has always been such a shy girl and here is an example of her issue manifesting itself!  We are so excited that she made it through her first six weeks of high school successfully and gets to keep on cheerin on those Mavs!   We're especially excited for homecoming next week where Britt gets to cheer at the Varsity football game!  Our family room looks like mum central!  Come and enjoy the festivities with us!

A HUGE Pet Peeve!

Ok, I am just cleaning our house this morning and listening to the View. May I pose a question...Why is it that actors/famous people think that they know EVERYTHING about politics? Many of them are not necessarily educated just famous, in contrast many politicians are highly educated. Apparently fame also makes you smart and makes your opinion the correct one. It drives me up a tree to listen to Woopi Goldberg (however you spell her name) talk about politics as if she is an authority on all things political! The only reason she has a forum to speak about it publically is because some people think she is funny. I have heard Julia Stiles share her opinion that she states as if it were fact! There are many others. It is starting to really bug and I thought I'd share and see if anyone else feels the same way.

Not a creature was stirring...

As I am sitting up in bed tonight, the computer downstairs is off, no music is playing, no popcorn popping in the microwave while girls giggle waiting to watch a movie.  No girls planning a fun day for's QUIET - almost TOO QUIET!  Just Pookie, Casey and me sitting here.  We have had such a fun summer, it's sad to see it end.  We have made 6 trips to Sea World, (the most fun trip with our cousins from Flower Mound)  We had a fun family reunion, spent many fun hours on Troy and Kristin's boat!!!  Britt and I endured girls camp together even with no shower for  a week.  Britt had a blast at cheer camp!  We've spent lots of hours at the pool at Lifetime talking and Britt daring me to go down the slide!  (which I did last Saturday I'll have you know!)  We had a couple of super fun shopping trips for school stuff.  Today we finished it all off with pedicures!  Now the quiet!  The cute bag we bought weeks ago has been sitting in the shopping bag waiting for tomorrow - lots of firsts...First day of high school, first day of seminary, etc.  I just hope and pray that Britt will be good and have fun high school years with lots of fun memories.  Her first high school game to cheer at is ALREADY this week!!!  I can't believe my baby is going to high school tomorrow!!!!!  Seriously, where has the time gone?  Wish us luck!!!!!

Yep, we really gave it up!

Our family (Casey is proud to announce) gave up Diet Coke this week (mostly).  Casey got us memberships at Lifetime Fitness under the condition that we give up Diet Coke except for like once a week.  I'm sad to say that we were spending as much on Diet Coke as our membership to Lifetime costs!  Oh my gosh!  So now instead we have a sweet gym to work out in!  We all work out, we have had our hair cut in the salon there, we have had lunch there and LOVE it!  Britt and I are learning to swim laps.  Since it is a mere 105 FREAKING degrees here we spend A LOT of time in the pool!  We are all getting TAN - especially Casey!  This week Britt had a photo shoot with the cheerleaders.  I snapped a few on the side, see below!  Just hours after this picture Britt had SIX inches cut off of her hair!  It's very cute but I could have died watching all of that hair fall to the floor at the salon!  That's it for now!  More to come.....
