The Wizard of Oz

Alex and I went to see another Broadway show this week. As you can probably tell by now, it was the Wizard of Oz. I took this first picture with my phone of the stage before the show started. I thought that if I used the phone instead of a camera I wouldn't have to worry about someone coming to take it away.

Alex and I tried over and over again to get a good pic of us at the show! First we tried with his phone and it was really blurry. Then we tried with mine and it had a blinding flash! So this was a our best one before we gave up. We were sitting in the dress circle right in the middle which are way better than balcony seats. Alex liked this show a lot better than CATS, but Wicked is still his favorite to date. We look forward to seeing many more!! Maybe one day we will venture up to New York and see one on Broadway!!!

Almost Heaven

Alex and I took a trip to Weston and had a great time! It was the nice little get-a-way we needed. And we got to see family that I hadn't seen in almost a year! I just wish I could have taken more pictures. My camera died and I had forgotten the cord to charge it. That always seems to happen to me! But here are a few of what we did get....
Here is my Great, Great Aunt Betty and I. I think this the first time we have taken a picture together. She doesn't look too bad for being over 80, huh? And she absolutely LOVED Alex! When I said something like "You just gotta love Alex" she said "oh, yes! And if I were younger!...." It just cracked me up!
This is my ADORABLE nephew! Last time I saw him, he was a newborn. Now he is turning a year old on the 14th! He is such a smiley, content baby. Right now he is opening the present that we got him.

This is the only picture we got with Ally smiling!!! She didn't really like her picture being taken, but I get this one. Alex found some one else to pet him to sleep! And every time we tried to talk to either of them, Ally would say "Shhhhhh!" Just way too cute!

Here is another one of Ally with Bridgette. They really liked playing together. She would tell Bridgette "come here goggy!" She couldn't say dog that well, but I was really surprised at her verbal skills! It just showed me how much I had missed not seeing her for a year!

Me and Grant. Not a very good pic of us, but the flash kept blinding him so we gave up. I just wanted to take him home with me!

This is our baby! She did so well on the trip. Especially when it came to meeting Heidi. Heidi is the other dog in the pic and is a VERY loyal dog to my grandparents. They weren't sure what to think of each other at first, but I think in the end, they were able to be friends!

Taking a walk with the dogs. My Papaw with Heidi and Alex with Bridgette. They did really good on the walk, and my Papaw knows s0o0o0 much about this little town!

The dogs did really well walking together. And look at all the snow!! My grandparents said it was a lot worse and a lot of it had already melted. There were icicles on the sides of houses that stretched almost the entire length of the house! That weather is definitely not something I miss about Weston. I wish we could have spent a little more time there, but being a military family, vacations are usually short. But hopefully it won't be as long before we see them again. Oh! and on a little side note, on the 6th of March, while we were in Weston, Alex and were married for six months! Woohoo!!
