in case you have nothing recorded on your dvr...

i got this from the biblical christianity blog, so it's not my own doing! and i both thought this was pretty good!! 
so, if you don't have any old american idol/bachelor/msu-ole miss football games/mickey mouse recorded on your dvr (or if you don't plan on scrubbing toilets or staring at the wall), and you are actually going to watch the state of the union address tonight....please have a little fun while doing so. 

or you could just go to bed early!  :)

a little plastic entertainment

reed has pretty much gotten the hang of sitting up.  i'm not talking leave-him-in-the-floor sitting up or anything, but he can sit for a bit before he topples over.  so, i thought that the ball pit might be a fun place for him.  but, he was too excited to worry about sitting very much.  he couldn't figure out which ball to get in his mouth first...and as soon as he got it, he had to have a different one.  it was highly entertaining for him...and me!

i'm crazy at the end of the day...

but can it just stay like this forever?

it wasn't pretty

this past saturday, we went to starkville to the georgia game.  i took my big camera in the hump for the first time to try out a new lens.  (please refrain from the "you're a dork" comments.  i get it.)

we met some of my friends there, and despite the rain outside and the dreary game inside...we still had fun!!

william probably wouldn't have cared what happened on the court as long as he had his popcorn...

and as long as he got to watch the team "get fired up."  this may actually be his favorite part of the game.  and you can bet that he and wes form their own 2 man huddle and try this at home!

 here's my little buddy, AG, and chase's hot-shot friend (reading a text from chase) with their courtside seats...i know, where's the love??

jarvis got up, and we won the tip.

 william's hero...dee bost. 

at halftime, the frisbee dogs showed up to provide us some much needed entertainment!

and since i had my new lens out, i thought i'd show y'all how crazy some people can be.  see this cute family sitting across the gym from us?? (purple shirt, gray shirt, red shirt, black shirt)  don't they look so sweet and calm?

  yeah, well...then the chicken dance song comes on, and you can tell that their mama and daddy make them rehearse this routine at home.  daddy obviously really wants them to win him some KFC!! 

just kidding, brown fam!!  we love y'all!!

back to the game...our bulldogs decided not to play basketball until the last 5 minutes of the game.  at one point, i wanted to lay my head down in somebody's lap like william.

will preferred to just gnaw on a straw for his entertainment!

but at the end (thank you, phil turner), we pulled it out and got 2 thumbs up from the little fan! 

we were glad we came away with a win, but we're hoping for 40 minutes of basketball next weekend! :)

so what do you think??

my friend, mandy, told me how to make pictures extra large on this blog...what do you think?  better, worse, no different....i'm sure nobody but the grandparents will even care!  just trying it out!

i'm just sayin'

if you aren't doing the grocery game, southern savers, be centsable, or something along those aren't getting your money's worth at the grocery!! this was my best day ever at the kroger last week...$112.78 worth of savings!!

sadly, i was disappointed in my $70 worth of savings this week!! i do believe i'm addicted! (and with 4 males in this house...i do believe that's a good thing for my wallet!)

and now some outdoor play... in the last post, i stated that we play inside when it's cold. and that is true. unless there is snow. snow makes it possible to enjoy the outside when all you are worrying about inside is that your pipes are going to blow up like the neighbor up the street and cause a huge mess in your house and your yard. but, i'm trying to not think about it every 30 seconds or so.

anyway, shortly after we got up this started snowing.

catching snowflakes before breakfast...

as you can see, there isn't much on the ground at this point. but after breakfast, it looked more like this...

there was even enough to make a snow angel...

and a baby, baby, itty-bitty baby snowman...

and have a snowball fight...

don't worry, they were all still on good terms after the fight...

there is more snow expected for next week, and if i get to see these happy faces again, i guess i'll be ok with this winter chill...

as long as i have some hot chocolate. and my pipes don't burst.

we've been inside,

because it's cold out there!! this morning when i got up, it was 10 degrees! as in, one degree away from single digits! i promise you, i just looked outside and my neighbors' dog, charlie, had come out for a minute, and he had on a sweater. a green one. not making this up. when dogs are wearing sweaters in mississippi, that means indoor play, people!!

william is becoming quite the little architect. here, he built a ferris wheel for the barrel o' monkeys.

and william and wes have both gotten a little workout while boxing on the wii.

953 pieces might not sound like a lot, but trust me, 953 keeps little people occupied for quite some time.

and when the destroyer comes along and busts the prisoners out of jail, destroys the satellites, and tears the wheels off of the K-9 unit van, big brother will be occupied yet again for quite some time.

oh well...other than drinking hot chocolate and coming up with reasons not to go outside, what else do we have to do??
