Our Weekend

We had a great weekend. We decided to go to Memphis Saturday to do a little shopping and eating. I needed to pick up a few things for the kids and then we are always up to Barnes and Noble hanging out/reading. Matt bought himself a book and had it read by Sunday afternoon. McKenzie bought a book and is working on it, too. We ate lunch at The Arcade. It was sooo good.

We rode through downtown and I couldn't get over all the Ginkgo trees everywhere. They are bright yellow.

Of course we saw a trolley or two for Matt.

Sunday we went to church at David's old home church FBC Itta Bena. We love visiting there and the people!  The preacher preached a great message on Thanksgiving.  (This is David:  During the announcement time, one lady stood up and said, "I have something to announce, preacher.  ROLL TIDE!!!".  Only in a Southern country church.....)  Of course we are always going to eat wherever we go so it was The Crystal Grill for lunch. We were stuffed after eating there and it was hard to keep our eyes open driving home. It was a busy weekend but lots of fun times!

On a different note...Matt won Honorable Mention at the reading fair that was held this past Friday at his school. I had to laugh when I picked him up from school he came running out saying,"Mama, Mama I won a ribbon today." I said well Matt what place did you get?  He said, "I don't know!!" Little boys!! Way to go, Matt! We are proud of you.

Reading Fair/Happy Birthday Nick!

Matt is entering the reading fair at his school tomorrow. He chose a book we had here at the house, If You Take A Mouse To School. It is a cute book and Matt had fun doing all the art work for his backboard.

Someone else wants to go to the reading fair, too! Good luck, Matt!

Nick celebrated his second birthday this week. November 13th is the day we adopted him from the Greenwood animal shelter. He was a few months old so we always say that is his birthday. I have had cats my whole life and Nick is the sweetest that I have ever seen! He is like a little person and is so funny.  He is quite partial to Matt as you can see in the pictures. He thinks he has to do whatever Matt does. So thankful we were able to adopt him!

Memphis Grizzlies

Friday night Matt, Andy, Caleb and I went to the Memphis Grizzlies first home game of the season.  Matt has really gotten into basketball and it is his favorite sport right now.  We had such a great time and I had to share some pictures and a video of how much Matt enjoyed the game.  Memphis came from behind to tie the game with 8 seconds left and then won in overtime 111-108.

We got home just after midnight.  This is Matt on Saturday morning trying to wake up.
