Mira has been wanting to build a snowman and play outside for weeks now. So I finally gave in and let her go out even though it was only about 30 degrees. But the sun was shining and it was nice out. So she put her snow gear on and she played on the slide...

And in her Swing
She also wanted to play in the leaves. She didn't miss the snow at all. I can't wait for the first snow though so she can finally build her snow man and go sledding with her new sled nana is getting her for christmas.

Crazy weekend!

What a crazy weekend. I actually got a Sunday off for the first time in at least 6 months. And Walmart still called me at 7 am to see if Iwould come in...NO WAY!!! Anyway. We took Amira to her mamaw and papaw Smith's church for the first time. They were having a christmas play and Tim was a sheperd and Joe sang a song. It was great. Mira did so good. She just sat there and watched everything. We had dinner afterward provided by a couple at the church. Everyone just loved her. Then we went home to watch the Colts beat the Broncos and Timmy had to go to work before he could see his team get crushed. Poor guy. I took Jess and Gary up to Chuckie Cheese with us for Astoria's Birthday party. We had a great time. Although Gary had 50 tokens spent in less than 5 minutes. I loved spending the day with family. Hopefully within the next few years I will be able to do this full time instead of working every Sunday.
Isn't this the cutest dress in the whole world.

Latest Pics

Well we finally got to talk to grandma and grandpa on skype. Mira was a little confused at first but she caught on. After we were done she went to the door and put on her hat and gloves and said grandmas home! Poor thing. We had to call them back so she could talk one more time. This morning when she woke up she wanted grandpa on the puter again. This is gonna be a rough month till we get to see them. It might turn out to be like that Jim Carey movie where his whole life is on TV. I told grandma she might just have to leave her computer on skype all the time so Mira can talk when she wants.
What a week. I worked Mon-Wed at the middle school now Timmy is getting to work 12 hour days so he doesn't get home till like 4 in the morning so I cant have him watch Amira. I don't like having a full time baby sitter but I also cant just stay home or I will loose those teachers who always call me. Even though he makes more in 2 hours of over time than I do all day of subbing. I think I will just see if the neighbors can watch her just next week. But hope all is well here are a This one is mira and her daddy in the rocking chair.

Here is the adorable little one on Thanksgiving.

Winter is finally here!

Well I guess it had to happen sometime. Winter is finally here. We had some icy rain last night that melted off this morning and now we are having some snow showers and a high of like 14 degrees tomorrow. I can't wait to come visit ya in Florida grandma. Everything is going pretty well. I have been subbing a lot at the middle school. I love it there. I have been in sixth grade english the last two days. Its a blast. Volleyball is going great we were able to field two full teams that will compete in state tournaments Jan.-March. The girls are incredibly talented already. I am so excited for the future. Christmas shopping is pretty much done we got Amira a little tikes basketball goal and a tag jr reading system. It is really cool its this hand held device that she can put over the words in a book and it reads it to her with cool voices and sound effects and asks her questions about the pictures and stuff. I am excited I think she will like it. Mom and Dad are so hard to buy for though cuz they have already bought everything they need. Hope all is going well. Love ya....
