Day 3- Favorite TV show

Right now my favorite TV show is NCIS. I am driving my hubby nuts trying to watch all the back episodes... but I LOVE it. I actually LOVE crime drama shows.... my mother thinks it is morbid but I love the science part of it.

Other Crime Drama Shows I Love:
Criminal Minds
Numbers- even though it is not being renewed :(
CSI- New York
CSI- Miami
Law and Order (my least fav and hubby's fav.... makes for an interesting decision over who gets the remote)

OK and here is one of the few pics of Emma and I. It was taken by Hubby (he did a good job since he doesnt understand my camera) and my eyes are shut... but she is sooo cute!!

Love Ya!

Day 2- Favorite Movie

Favorite movie is the title for today.

Kids movie- Little Mermaid

My mom told me when I was in morning preschool I would come home and had to watch it EVERYDAY!! Now that was when we had tapes and one day the tape broke because I watched it so much!!!

I love movies and originally was going to school to be a movie director.

So here are a couple of my favorites:

Musical- Sound of Music

80's- Dirty Dancing

Funny- Dazed and Confused

Christmas- White Christmas

Current- 4 Christmases or Sweet Home Alabama

Here is the pic of Emma for the day!! This one is actually from today. Uncle Jason came to visit and was showing Ms E his IPad... he even let her play a game on it.... SO SWEET!!!

Love Ya,

John's Surprise Party

A couple weekends ago, we had a surprise party for John/ open house to show off our "new" home. It was SOOOOO much fun!!! Here are a few pictures from the night!! John got a call about an hour before he was supposed to come home, so he was over an hour late!!! We had already eaten, so when he came home I had everyone hide in the backroom and bathroom. It was obvious when he walked in that we had people there, but I told him everyone had come, eaten and were tired of waiting for him!!! Needless to say he was bummed!! But he quickly found everyone in the back room!!

We had sooo much fun and are sooo grateful everyone could come!!!

Thanks.... Love Ya!!

Playground and Hair

Alright here are some pics from Emma, Bandit and my first visit to the park this year!!! So fun... not the best pics, but what can you do when you are trying to hold a puppy on a leash and not freak out because your baby is getting so big!!

Plus, I colored my hair last night.... it turned out differently than I planned... but I like it!!

Don't worry Amanda, I downloaded the pics from the party... now I just need to edit them and I will get them up soon!!
