Knee Deep...

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving surrounded by lots of good food, friends and family. We went to Atlanta, a little later than planned, due to a severe migraine that had me throwing up (too much info) and pretty much in bed all day Tuesday, but we got there and were able to spend a few days with family. Wednesday evening we went down to Atlantic Station and did some shopping and had dinner. Thursday we had Thanksgiving at Mom's and Friday we did a little shopping and then helped my sister decorate her Christmas tree. Saturday we helped Mom with her decorations and then headed home in time for Zack to get to work and me and Gary to duke it out over the Georgia/GA Tech game!!! Go DAWGS! Victory for the 7th year in a row!

Here are some pics...

This is me and my nephew, Draven (my younger brother's son) in the car on the way to Atlantic Station. So many people think that he and I look alike!
Here are Zack, my niece, Taylor (my older sister's daughter) and my nephew, Draven (my younger brother's son). Zack was in such a silly mood! He kept messing up the pictures and making everyone laugh...as you'll see below...(check out Zack's shirt!)
This is my sister, Terri and her daughter, Madison Taylor (she goes by Madison, but I call her "Tay-Tay")
I like this picture...it's me, my sister and my mom (as you can see, I favored my Dad!)
Here's Zack being silly and messing up our picture again! I was laughing so hard! When my sister saw this picture, she said I reminded her of Paula Deen.
We finally got Zack to be serious...
Here's one of me, my sis and my mom at California Pizza Kitchen at Atlantic Station. Check out my sister's eyes!!! They are so doggone blue---I'm jealous cause I love 'em!
Just a few more of my precious baby!
I'm still knee-deep in decorating. Sometimes I feel like I'll never be done, but as I look around, I can see we're making some headway! Zack has been home sick for the past two days. I took him to the Doctor yesterday and he has a viral infection (sore throat, headache, fever). He's been laying in bed for two days watching Seasons 1 & 2 of The West Wing. I think I'm getting hooked on it too!

This weekend is the second "B" Club meeting and I can't wait! We're meeting in Birmingham and I'm really looking forward to it. I've met Kat already, I've known Dianne for forever, I've talked with Tonja on the phone, but this weekend, I'm hoping to meet Tonja, Rhoda, Sandi, Jill and whoever else shows up!!! I'm so excited!!! Don't forget your cameras, girls!!! I'm just sad Jean can't be with us! We'll be thinking about you and we'll take lots of pictures!

Okay, enough of a bloggy break...back to decorating!

Oh, I do feel like crying. I so want to be there this weekend. Please do take lots of pictures. I would call, but no one would be able to understand me, ha, ha!!!!

I just loved all these pictures. Zach reminds me of our Anthony or maybe Ray. Whenever I would try to get a family picture for a Christmas card we would take about 20 pictures, then we'd let them ham it up for a few pictures. Those are still the ones we like the best when we look back!

I'll be there, girlfriend! Still not sure about Friday night, but I will be there all day Saturday for the shopping & eating. Can't wait to meet you either.

Glad y'all had a good Thanksgiving, looks like a wonderful time with family. Ours was good too. I was in Montgomery, you were in Atlanta, how funny. Actually, we went to Atlanta on Friday...all in one day, fast trip.

Hugs,
Rhoda

Tracey,
I'm new to blogging but landed on your page and stopped to say "hi".
I read your post on Tonja's site about your Dad singing hymns. When my grandmother went blind, I took her a cassette player with headphones and she would sit for hours in her lazyboy rocking away and singing off key to hymns sung by country artists.
"How Great Thou Art" and "Blessed Assurance" will always bring a smile to my face and tears to my eyes.
I think your dad would like my grandmother!

Girlfriend~ you don't look a thing like Paula Dean! But, you are as much fun as Paula Dean. Well as much fun as I only imagine her to be, since she is NOT a B!
