Do We have to go to school???? YESSS!!!!!

McKenna's new teacher, Mrs. Connie- We love you!!

Kids and their new snazzy school clothes!

Well, school has started along with early wake ups, lost shoes and hair bows, and breakfast at 6:45 instead of 9ish!!! But the kids have been so excited this week. They all love their new teachers and have tons of friends in their classes, THANK YOU GOD!! We have great expectations for this year. We started off the school year with a family prayer Sunday night. It was very powerful and I encourage all families to start there week with a Sunday night prayer and devo time. What a great way to come together and give the week to God.

Our Vacation- Backwards.

Our final destination, Krispy Kreme. Yes we were fascinated!!

Finally, some relaxation

Carson loved the samples of Coca-Cola products from around the world

A real Olympic torch that was used during the 1996 Summer Olympics. How Cool!

We were in Pin heaven. Clayton collects pins from all our crazy excursions!!

Our trip to the World of Coca-Cola Museum. An awesome place.

My only pic of our short stay in Chattanooga, TN. We didn't eat there, but the sign was super
cool. That is a great downtown area

Yes, we rode a train up the side of the mountain. My fingerprints are still on the poles. I was terrified

This is the view inside the train. Yikes!

I fit through the "Fat Man's Pass" Yea me!!

Our three mountain climbers.

Rock City, TN or is it Georgia?

They had a blast rock climbing!!

They view was amazing. I didn't get too close to the rail.

Our wonderful Vacation-backwards.

We had a wonderful time vacationing with my sister , her hubby, and two nieces. We invisioned a quiet, relaxing time swimming in my sister's pool, going out to eat, and maybe doing a little shopping. Well...... that doesn't happen in my family. We don't lounge, we go!!!! And go we did. we were there less than an hour and sister says " hey why don't we go to the Birmingham Zoo?" Then we headed up to Lookout Mountain, somewhere in the Smoky Mountains. It was amazing!!Lee and Natalie have some beautiful property with a waterfall!!! We ate at the local snazzy restuarant-Canyon Grille. Stayed at some beautiful condos. Oh, this was the weekend for the longest Garage Sale. It was crazy how many garage sales there were in this one little town. Then off to Rock City, TN. or GA. Then we rode the train up a mountain and I got closer to God since I prayed the whole way up and down. Movies in Chattanooga TN. Then World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta Georgia. Finally some swim time at Nat and Lee's AND to make our vacation complete: Krispy Kreme doughnuts on our way home. It was a wonderful vacation

Alice's Economic Stimulus Package.

Yes, I am having a Garage Sale ( sans the garage)
Why? Because I am all about helping America ( or Madison County) through these hard economic times
And because I have a butt-load of children's clothes and not a butt-load
of closet space.
So here are the details
Boys clothes up to size 7
Girl clothes up to size 4- and some bigger
Fraley's Gift shop sale items. This is a great way to stock up on some awesome teacher gifts and birthday gifts.
Children's books and toys
Some furniture.
Children's costumes
Some men's and women's clothing
And a kid or two depending on the price!!!!!haha.

When is this garage sale? Friday 7:30am
I will have a .25$ table of hundreds of children's clothes. This will be your greatest bargain!!!

So there you got it. My contribution to the economic stimulus package
