Happy Halloween!!

Well, Joshua went trick-or-treating twice today. The daycare took them around the school this afternoon and we went tonight around our neighborhood. He didn't seem to enjoy the large group going around school, but he loved going around the neighborhood with just the family. He was Spiderman, but he wouldn't wear the mask. Ari was a cute little pumpkin. She was just happy going along for the ride. I wanted to get Pebbles and Bam Bam costumes for them, but we couldn't find one in Ari's size. Maybe next year.

My munchkins get to meet Uga VI

When UGA played Vandy this year the Dawgs stayed at the Marriott where Michael works. We went up to experience the festive atmosphere that I miss so much. We were lucky enough to see Uga. Joshua and Ari were able to get their picture made with him. While Uga loved Ari and gave her lots of kisses she wasn't so sure of him. Joshua, on the other hand, loved him. Some of the kids around were a little afraid of him. Not my little guy. He went right up to him and pet him and tried to hug him.

I had to be quick with the picture. Like my Georgia Girl, Uga doesn't sit still for pictures when there are a lot of people around. I didn't get as good a picture as I wanted, but at least you can see all three of them.

I hate all things orange!!!

I'm just a little on the ticked off side right now. I just watched my beloved Georgia Bulldogs lose the the Florida Gators. Ranked 4th and we still can't beat them? WTH? Yes, we were without DJ Shockley, but we still should have beat them. We missed 2 makeable (is that a word?) field goals that would have actually won the game for us. I am so sick of losing to this damn team. The Dawgs seem to have a mental block where the Gators are concerned. Michael rolls his eyes everytime I say that, but how else can you explain it? I mean really, are they the better team this year? No. Don't get me wrong, they have beat us in the past with better teams and those losses, while hard to take, do not make me angry. When we are clearly the better team I get furious when we lose to them. It is getting pretty ridiculous. At least we are still ahead in the SEC East. Knocking on wood, hoping that I didn't just jinx our games against Auburn and Kentucky.

Regardless of the loss, I still love my Dawgs. I'll be sitting in front of the tv in 2 weeks cheering them on again. I just hope we have Shockley back and can pull out a win against Auburn and Kentucky.

A Good Start

This is my beautiful, if dirty, Georgia Girl. She is of the Uga bloodline and my first baby. She is somewhat spoiled, a lot skiddish due to having only one eye, and incredibly energetic for a bulldog and I love her dearly.

She starts out my first official attempt at blogging. We will see how this progresses. Hopefully I will be able to find the time to keep it up. Being a mom of 2 under the age of 3 and a dog, a wife, and working full time it sometimes gets difficult to find time to do anything.
