December 25, 2010 I didn't take any pictures on Christmas! I know, you all can't believe it but I just forgot! I got up Christmas morning and baked a Cherry Pie for Lonnie & Francie and then cut fabric for the rag blankets I am making. Brandon finally got up at 1:00 pm and watched TV..... lazy bones! It was nice to just have nothing to do for a Saturday morning! We went over to Lonnie & Francie's house (Brandon's dad and step mom) and had an excellent meal with them and visited for awhile. I really enjoy being with them.... they are so fun! When then stopped by Marty & Stan's house (Brandon's mom and her boyfriend) and helped her fix Christmas dinner. She is having a total knee replacement Thursday and can't get around very well so I warmed everything up so she could sit down and relax. We had a good time and ready to tackle the New Year!

She also loves to play ball. We have taught her how to "toss" the ball to us. She is so cute and can't wait for us to get home and play. She is such a good dog and I can't imagine not having her! She loves to mess with Max and Mattie but as they are getting older they can't keep up with her...... She watches over them and I ask her to go get Max (aka: bubby) or Mattie (aka: sissy) and she will go find them and make them come into whatever room we are in. She's like the momma. :)

What a nice surprise to open the mail Monday December 6, 2010 to find this in it! My good friend, Heather Stewart (aka: DJ Sparkle), loves Wonder Woman! I try to find random things that she doesn't have in her collection and she found this for me.... I love it! This book reminds me of how special she is in my life and I will always wonder.... What Would Wonder Woman Do? Thanks Heather!

November 25, 2010: Happy Thanksgiving! Well I don't have a picture for today and it wouldn't have been complete without Brandon there. He was sick and had to miss out on all the good home cookin' momma made. No worries, I took him home a plate and he ate it all! I am very thankful and very grateful that I have an amazing family! There is nothing like being home for a holiday and a home cooked meal!

I love our Columbia Chamber of Commerce! All of the staff are wonderful, down to earth and fun! Want me to prove it? Well just watch this little video of our very own Don Laird, President on this fancy powered cooler. You can be sure there wasn't any wasted trips to find something to drink during today's staff chili cook off! Go Tigers!
This is my good friend Heather Stewart! She is always doing nice things for me and I wanted to return the favor and do something nice for her. She LOVES Wonder Woman and I wanted to come up with a couple of things that she doesn't have so I was able to find a really cool Wonder Woman barbie doll and a Wonder Woman book that has all sorts of really cool stuff in it. She loved it! Thanks DJ for being a great friend!

Chuck Everitt received 3,000 points (highest in the history of the Ambassadors) and we are waiting to see if he wants a third tree planted or money donated in his honor to a charity of choice. What great milestones and I am so proud to be a part of the Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors..... my goal? To have my 1,000 points during my Chair of the Ambassadors in the 2011-2012 year.

This is a video clip of my father-in-law, Lonnie Spry, and a guy from Arkansas playing the "Cat Fight" trivia contest at Busch Stadium during the Cardinals / Cubs game on September 14, 2010. We had tickets to the Champions Club and they came in to see if they could get anyone to play. I told them "My father-in-law would love to play!" (The stuff I get people into!) He did really good and even won! I was so proud of him. This was on TV for the pre-game show and everyone at Murry's watched (my mother-in-law, Francie, is the bartender there) and he was so embarrassed! We had a great time but wish the Cardinals had won :(

As I was playing around last night on facebook I noticed that Carl Edwards had posted a video about a contest. So I watched it and he encouraged everyone to create a video, upload it and have people "like" it on www.racecarledwards.com so I thought it would be worth a try! As of 3:30 pm today there was 7 total videos and my video had 63 votes (number 1 so far)! It's super easy and you don't do anything except "like" my video.... no signing up and no e-mail addresses! Please take the time to keep me in the running and vote for me! Thanks for all the support so far and fingers crossed that I have a chance to meet Carl Edwards and then race him in a 2011 Ford Fusion on September 8th at Kansas Speedway!

I got to go to see Dr. Jones with my sister this morning for her baby check up. This is the first grandchild for my parents and Greg's parents and everyone is super excited! I got the joy of hearing the baby's heartbeat this morning. It's not a long video but you can hear it. I think it's going to be a little girl! We will officially find out on October 6th which Mom, Dad, myself, and Greg's Mom and Dad are all going to see what sex this baby is. I know Ashley and Greg waited a long time for this moment and I couldn't be happier for them.... they are going to make great parents! Aunt Shell is going to spoil this kid rotten.... and then hand he/she back to it's parents.... Isn't that nice! :)
