Hornets Game

Alyx and I got to go to our first NBA game tonight - the displaced New Orleans Hornets vs. Portland Trail Blazers. I have no idea who won as we left at halftime. We had a great time, but the noise and how late it was getting made it time to go... Here's the pics!

LOL! Yes, I am a red head now...

Boy, you are an observant lot! Yes, I colored my hair on my birthday. It was starting to get pretty dried out from the highlighting, so I put a temp color on it so I could go longer without bleaching it again.

It was supposed to be "light golden brown" but ended up red. Ah, well, so many of you noticed it in Alyx's award pics and seemed to like it so well, I may keep it. What do you think? A lot of you first met me as a redhead, maybe it just brings back fond memories LOL...

{these pics were taken on my birthday last week}

Alyx's Reflections Award Ceremony

We went to Alyx's PTA Reflections Award Ceremony last night. He won 3rd place in the Kindergarten - 2nd grade division for his school in Visual Arts. That's 4 classes of Kindergarten and 4 classes of 1st and 2nd graders!!!

We have no idea (well, we know it was a dinosaur, of course) what he drew and have not gotten to see the picture. I hope we get it back! When we do, I'll post it here as well!

He was such a big boy, walking to and across the stage all by himself!!! We are just so proud of him and he is so very proud of his trophy!!!

Here's the Pictures.

Its My Birthday!

Wow! I'm 37 years old today. Scary.

I've got a ton of stuff on the ol' to do list today. One of those things is updating this page since I haven't done it in 2 weeks or so, so here are the pics from the last few weeks. {Click the titles to go to the albums.}

Incredible Pizza
We went to Incredible Pizza for Alyx's 6th birthday. I picked Alyx and Ethan up from school and my mom picked up Lauren and Andrew and met us there. That was the absolute best time to go there because there were maybe 20 other people there and there was no waiting anywhere! We had the best time!!!

Alyx's Birthday Party
We had Alyx's birthday party at Burger King. The kids had such a great time playing! When we were done there, we all came back over to our house to bust the pinata. That was a riot!!!

Jessie got a new camera
Mark & Pam showed up at Thai food with a surprise! An 8 month old baby... None of us realized how long it had been since we had seen them since only Anthony knew they were even expecting LOL! When we got back to our house, we were going to have margerita's but we were out of sweet and sour. I got a couple of recipes off the net and tried concocting my own but that didn't work out so well. I ended up making Val and Jessie some Bailey's Shakes and Jessie introduced me to a new drink - Sunny D and Amaretto! YUM!

Lilla {the new puppy and a bunch of humans}
Doug and Neely got a new puppy. Her name is Lilla and she's adorable! Since Jessie brought her camera again, we had a bunch of pics!

Jessie poses
We have really been getting on to Jessie lately for refusing to pose for pictures. I have threatened her with posting all the bad angle/full mouth/etc. pics if she doesn't start posing. Laura and I decided to teach her how to pose for the camera and she finally got it! It was quite an amusing process though...

Phew... I think that's it for the new pics. Anthony and I are going out to dinner tonight at a very swanky restaurant {Thanks Dawn & Jason for the gift cert!} and we have to dress up a bit. If we get a picture, I'll post that tomorrow!
