I'm SOO jealous

Do y'all see how close David is to Brett Favre?? He just sent me this picture from the game. I think its cruel. Though I begged him to send it to me. A vendor that is creating their safety video tonight after the game, got tickets for them. They are TWO ROWS off the field. Seriously he is so close to Brett Favre. I know Julie you are dying reading this saying, "I'm so disappointed in you" But you know what, I love Brett Favre. He freaking ROCKS!! And he's HOT! At least for a guy who is your age! :-)

Oh and don't worry, I sent my camera with him, so I will post better pictures tomorrow. Hopefully his finger won't be in all of those! :-)

Busy Day

We had a busy day today. We actually got some things hung on the wall. See our Steffes!

As you can see our stockings are out too. We decided to get some Christmas stuff out as well. Since we don't plan on being home over the weekend to do it, we thought we would get a head start. I really think David and I just really love Christmas and can't wait to get the stuff out every year. Here is Janie putting the angel on top the tree. Don't freak out Mom!

We also put up the Nativity set. And as usual, Alex couldn't keep his hands off of it. It was only there for thirty seconds before he was playing with the cow, and baby Jesus.


Tinkerbelle decided to let me know that she was jealous of not getting anytime on the blog. So I took some pictures of her doing her favorite things. Isn't she cute?

Here she is stretching saying please please pet me!

Here she is snuggling by the fire.

And finally with her head in Janie's lap getting a pet.

She has such a hard life!

Friday night we went to Sam's and Black Eyed Pea like I said in an earlier post, but then we came home and it was only 8:30. Since it was Friday night the kids did not want to go to bed. So we played Monopoly! FOR TWO HOURS!! The box says for 8 and older, but I think we did pretty good. Alex and I were the train, then the thimble, and I think we ended with the shoe. Janie was the dog, and David the wheel barrel. Janie did a great job counting out money and Alex did a good job rolling and counting the spaces. It was 10:30 before we decided to call it a night. But it was lots of fun. We will have to do it again soon!! I love classic board games. Maybe the Game of Life will be next!!

The Best Husband

I just wanted to share that I have the best husband! He is a great guy. He is a wonderful father, and he puts up with me. And that's not easy to do. He has been understanding of me and how I feel in Tennessee, especially the whole not having a job thing. He also takes great care of all of us. When I lost my camera he didn't get mad, he helped me walk the neighborhood and knock on doors asking people. When I asked for a new one for Christmas, he told me that he wasn't going to get me one for Christmas. He got me one early. He decided that I needed a camera to keep up with the blog, and everything going on in our lives. So I got my new camera this week. He got a heck of a deal at Tiger Direct online. Its very similar to my last one, just a newer model. SO THANK YOU DAVID! You Rock!

Black Eyed Pea

Last night we went to Sam's to do a little Christmas/Thanksgiving shopping. We got a few things, $100 worth of course. Can you really go in there and not spend that much? Anyway, when we were done, it was 7:30 and the kids were starving, so we went to Black Eyed Pea. They have the best broccoli rice casserole! So the kids each ordered there typical cheeseburger and mini corn dogs. I got a vegetable plate, because all I really wanted was broccoli rice casserole. And David got the "TEXAS" Sized Country Fried Steak. I about died when it came out. It was huge. I had to take a picture. They all put their hands on the plate so you could see how big it was. HUGE!

Great Visit, Great Breakfast

This weekend Grandpa Jack and Grandma Jane came to visit us. We had a very good time just hanging out. We looked at Alex's daycare, Janie's school, the apartment, we went into Nashville for a little shopping, then Mom and I went to Dollar General Market, Goodwill and Walgreen's. I have to say that Goodwill had the find of the day. We found the "drink" glasses David has been looking for. They were 49 cents each.

This morning before church we fixed breakfast. We had pancakes, sausage, and eggs. Janie helped make the pancakes. She did a fabulous job flipping the pancakes for me. Thank God for cellphones so I can still take some pictures!!

Your Getting Very Sleepy

Like I have said before, this moving experience hasn't been exactly how I planned it, but all in all the kids have done fantastically and we are in a nice home and are very happy. Since we have moved, Janie got our old bed, so that anyone who comes to visit will have a place to sleep, and we got a king size. Well our bed came in but the mattress did not, so we have been waiting very patiently,

Alex has struggled since moving into the house because he wants to continue to sleep with Janie in her room. She on the other hand is just very excited to have her own room. Since our mattress hasn't come in, David and I have been taking turns sleeping with her and the other one on the couch. Well yesterday our bed FINALLY came, so last night was her first night all on her own. Doesn't our bed look awesome?

Alex tried his best to get to sleep with Janie. He even tried to not go to bed at all. He came upstairs several times last night. Needing a drink, a kiss, and finally needing to go potty. When David and I came downstairs to go to bed around 10:30 we found Alex. I would much rather sleep in my bed then on the floor!

The kids had so much fun trick-or-treating. We went around the block and both of them had full pails. We also took Rick and Gloria's daughter with us. She's only 15 months so she went to about 10 houses but she did pretty good. We had 130 plus trick-or-treaters at our house. The big bummer of Halloween was that I took my camera with me while I walked around with the kids. Apparently I set it down when I stopped to help Alex at some point with his costume and bucket. So no pictures of Halloween to share and no camera anymore. I'm very bummed. Hopefully Santa will be good to me! :-)
