And just like that…

Christmas is over! This time of year always seems to fly by so quickly. This has been the best holiday I've had in a few years...I had genuine holiday spirit! The house was crazy decorated, I shopped early, I listened to Christmas songs, and drove around looking for lights. Everyone was spoiled with presents and we got to spend some great time with family. Speaking of family...I am SO proud of my side this year! I have silently proclaimed myself as the new matriarch of this family and hosted dinner/presents at our house this year. We had a delicious meal, talked nicely, opened gifts, and ate brownies. ALL without the…

Catching Up…

Halloween Happened...Trunk or Treat, giving out candy, eating lots of candy, and loving the weather. I went to restore some sanity with HBean. There's lots to say about this weekend, but what stands out the most is the how much we laughed. It was an awesome rally to be a part of, and a great weekend. We've gotten settled into the house, finally. The garage needs a weekend devoted to it, but doesn't everyone's? We've gone on dates, made chili, and SB built a doghouse that may deserve it's only post. In wedding news, we got our save the dates, and found our counselor/officiant for the ceremony. I also found…

Thanksgiving break-2009: Sniper Style Part 3 (The next day…)

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Not just 1 or 2, but 3 dancing machines!"][/caption] Our week of thanksgiving bliss was trucking right along. I had good food and traditions with the Turner's and lots of rest and cooking in Dwood with the boys, so the only thing left was turkey time with the Birney's (Sniperjess' family). For those of you that know us...the Birney house is always an interesting experience. It's untraditional, and slightly unorthodox...but it's always a good time with genuine intentions from all. My growing time in Dwood lately lead to what I would call a "catch up" session when we got there. The adult beverages were poured and…

What are YOU thankful for??

SniperBen, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so what better time to tell you how THANKful I am to have you in my life. Thank you for loving me. For buying me flowers. For making me breakfast in bed. For running with me (and always stopping when I need to stop even though you don't need to). For saying "Good Morning Sunshine" every.single.morning. For paying attention to small details. For adjusting to life with a 7 year old. For your surprises. For ALWAYS asking how my day is and actually caring about the details of it. For still opening the car door for me. For taking me on dates. For…

Le Spooky de la Towne

So Halloween has come and gone and oh what a great one it was. It's always been my favorite "holiday" and this year was no exception. For the past few years I've been collecting pieces from Spooky Town. With the sale of the house I couldn't really put them out for display, but now that I'm in an apartment, I can put anything out I want. So when Oct rolled around it was time to load up the car with all my stuff from my parents house and decorate my house to the gills...Halloween style! [flickr-gallery mode="photoset" photoset="72157622640067003"] It certainly was nice to finally be able to decorate and put…

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween SniperFans! And for us...it was our first! :) We had Chase for the weekend, and we spent it in Dunwoody with some of SniperBen's family. It was a rainy weekend, so we skipped on trick or treating and went to a festival at Dylan's (SB's nephew) school. My little vampire ran around and had a blast, and I got to meet SB's brother and sister! After the games, we had a dinner at a place that SB and I went to a long time ago and had some fantastic bbq. After putting the little blood sucker to bed, we watched none other than...Halloween! We've made it to Halloween…
