Oge's Visit!

The Oge' clan is back in Louisiana after spending Thanksgiving with the Brays! They flew in Wednesday and left early this morning. We had a great time in Indy. The time flew by way too fast! I made dinner on our last night and Katie set the table up beautifully!


Katie and Riley sure did hit it off. It was adoration at first sight. She really had a great time with him and he was loving it!



(my bad, I accidently posted this picture twice and I can't seem to figure out how to take it off....)




During our time we shopped, went to a movie, ate some yummy food, and just hung out and played Wii. The weather was pretty good. It was mostly between 40 and 50 degrees. Not too bad. Thank goodness there wasn't any snow! 25 more days until I am back in LA and get to see everyone again!





After we dropped the family off at the airport, John and I slept until 10ish. We got up, did some last minute shopping, then decorated for Christmas. I love leaving decorations "as is" when I put them into the box after Christmas. I pulled out our chalk board (it's hanging on the mantel) and I left our Christmas wish list on it from last year. I was cracking up. It says "Dear Santa, John wants a puppy and I want it to stop snowing." I wonder what we'll write this year! I have a long week ahead of me and John has a couple of interviews coming up in the next couple of weeks. Wish us luck!!

They are coming!

No pictures this week. Sorry. I tried to blog at school today but my access was DENIED. Are you serious? Blogs are considered so bad they are blocked?? Oh well.. Anyway, this week has been ok. The weather has sucked big time. Lots of cold and rain. I'm hoping it clears up before the Oge's come to town! That's right..you heard me! Linda, Zack, and Katie are flying north Wednesday! They are leaving behind warm days and trecking (spelled right?) into some coldness. I'm really excited. I haven't seen them since September and I am missing them bad. Nothing too much on the agenda. Some shopping, movies, dinners. The usual.

Saturday is our 5 month married anniversary. We're going out to dinner and a movie. Finish Christmas shopping, that kind of thing. In 12 days the x-mas cards go out!! Ok, well have a great Friday!

Mom and Josh visit


I have been so behind on my blogging lately. Sorry! There just isn't that much to write. Last weekend my mom, Josh and Opal came visit for a few days. It was lots of fun, as always, and I can't wait to see them all again for Christmas! Josh came a day early so he got to see the Indy sights with John. Friday night we went out to dinner with the Brays (my in-laws) at a great Italian restaurant. Later that night we played Wii. Josh had to leave Saturday morning to go back to work but mom was able to stay until Monday morning. Mom and I are shaping up in our new shape-up's by sketchers. They work!!! My legs were hurting last week! Opal and Riley had a good time and enjoyed each others company. As I said, I can't wait to see them as well as Keith and Kyle for Christmas. I miss them already!!
Other than last weekend, nothing much has been going on. I had a very easy week at work. It's been beautiful here, 70's and sunny! This is a very laid back weekend. Yesterday, three of my friends and I went to Old Navy and picked up some scarves. They were a $1 each! I came home a took at 2 hour nap. Today I am still in my p.j's. I had to finish my evaluations for my parent conferences Wednesday. Ehhhh. Oh well, hopefully they will go by quick. This coming up Friday is my sister-in-law, Amy's, birthday! We're going to go celebrate with her Saturday. Other than that, not too much going on here. I just hope the week flies by!
