Future Photographer

Micah LOVES cameras, video cameras, computers, i phones, pretty much anything electronic. He's pretty good at using them too. He's the main reason I purchased my new i phone (which I LOVE) He is so good at it and knows more about it than I do! He's had Mama's to practice on for about a year though. I LOVE my new phone but that's another story for another day. Today I wanted talk about Micah's photo skills and share some of his photos.
You may think his pics are a little strange, but they are all things he loves. He loves his Aunt Laura, Cats, hence the cat litter, and the BIG bat at Costco. He is one silly man.
Micah told me a while back that he'd like a camera for his birthday (meaning Christmas) He also specified that he wanted one like mine, not a play one! Um, you're Three. Meanwhile I showed him one of those Kid Tough cameras, and told him it was a neat one, he'd still like one like mine. Hmmm I'm thinking that maybe just maybe I'll buy a new one for myself and just give him me old one, the other option is buying him a nice cheap one on Black Friday, decisions decisions.

Being Thankful

The month of November is about being thankful. I'm sure it wouldn't take me very long to think of 30 things that I am thankful for, but today I am SO Thankful for not only Micah's Wonderful school, but his teachers, the children in his class and their parents. I just love his school! Today Micah's class had their Thanksgiving Feast. The kids all had made darling little hand turkey shirts and wore them along with their Indian headdresses with the Indian names on them. Micah was "Flying Eagle." Mrs. Scott painted their faces with tee pees and they looked darling. Mrs. Kathy was dressed as a Pilgrim as she served food, and there was a lot of yummy food. Including a HUGE table of desserts. Here's what we made! Darling huh?
We had So much fun at the feast. I just LOVE Micah's school!!

UGA Football

UGA football is one of my favorite things! I LOVE going to Athens on game day. There are wonderful smells and excitement everywhere. As long as you're wearing Red or black you'll find friends wherever you go. I used to have season tickets, but when the donation requirement was raised, I had to opt out. I have a wonderful uncle who has been a season ticket holder for forever and he VERY kindly passed his tickets on to our family last week. We jumped at the chance to go see the Dawgs play between the hedges. Even though this hasn't been one of our best seasons by far, I would Never turn down the chance to see a game. Plus Micah hadn't been to a real game yet. We've taken him to picture days, and even to the G Day game during the spring, but EVERYTHING about game day is different! Have I mentioned that I LOVE it?
Stacy and I had a date night on Friday night and Micah spent the night at The Rent's house. We picked him up early Saturday morning and headed to Athens. We tailgated with some friends and had a fun time before heading the the UGA bookstore.

My Uncle's seats are GREAT seats, although my first year's season ticket seats will Always be my favorite, there isn't a bad seat in the house (at least of the ones that I've sat in) We all enjoyed a Home Coming whopping of Tennessee Tech and are very thankful that we got to go! GOOO DAWGS!!
As we were leaving the game I asked Micah if he had fun, and he said yes. Then I asked him what his favorite thing was and he said "dancing with that girl." He and Peyton became the best of friends and sang and danced at the tailgate party.....So for now on, maybe we'll just let Micah party outside the gates :)

Halloween (only a week late :~)

We attended the Fall festival at the church this year and knew that it would be in doors due to the rain. We showed up a little early and Micah played all kinds of games. He had a BLAST but was ready to go to Mam-ma's house within an hour. We left with a TON of candy!!
He was So excited and asked if there would be games at Mam-ma's house. There were no games, but my goodness did we get a surprise or what? Mama, Daddy, and Nut ALL were dressed up and had pumpkins lit on the porch and all!! They crack me up!!
Mama had a bowl FULL of Micah's favorite things for him to have (there were Nilla Waffers, some kind of nut energy mix, fruit snacks, bandaids, and candy!) He was so happy! We visited for a while before heading to Mr. Jeff and Mrs. Cindy's house (Micah wanted to go there too) They had some candy for him and it just made his night to be able to see them too :) By this time it was around 7:30 or so, I thought it would be a great surprise to go by Stacy's parents, so we did. They LOVED that! On our way home we began thinking it would probably be a good idea to eat supper (VERY late for us) We stopped at a place in Monroe called Joe Shmoe's Pizza. It was So yummy! If you're ever in Monroe you should try it :) Take a look at Bones below!


Anyone who knows me and knows my taste in clothes will be VERY surprised with what I'm about to share. A couple of weeks ago Micah and I went shopping for warm pajamas. First I hit the Dreaded Wal-Mart and they had NOTHING for a boy his size. I wasn't sad, I just thought I could pick up some of the off brand of Carter's for cheap. No luck. We then hit Discover Mills. I found some cute ones at Carter's and bought them. I had plans to meet my sweet aunt for lunch and had some time to waste, so we went into Gymboree. I LOVE that place!! I found several short sleeve shirts for next spring/ summer and while checking out I told the worker bee that we were PJ shopping. Well she showed me some that they had on sale for $5.99, not bad at all especially for Gymboree. I bought them. They are MIcah's most favorite PJs and he would sleep in them EVERY night if I'd let him. What do you think of "Bones?" BTW they glow in the dark! CRAZY!!!
