Monster Jam!

We had a great weekend! We spent all day (I’m not exaggerating- from 10:30AM – 4PM) at the Monster Truck Show in Greenville. It was awesome and the boys loved it! We went early to meet the drivers in the Pits. We arrived shortly after the Pits opened so there were no lines for each driver. Th wore a hat to the show, so he was able to get it autographed by each driver. Ta was in heaven- unlimited amount of dirt, big trucks, and tractors. He didn’t know what to make of it all!

We attend this show every year. It’s something that we’ve done since TJ and I first started dating. It just so happens to coincide with my birthday and is shortly after Christmas, so it’s kind of a combined gift thing for the family. T.G. stayed with my in-laws, although next year we will probably all attend. Ta attended his first one last year, and he wasn’t even 2 years old. He enjoyed it much better this year because he remembered it from last year, plus we frequently look at the pictures from last year and watch Monster Truck movies on YouTube and DVDs. The boys were so excited that they didn’t go to bed until very late and woke up at 5:45AM. They were more excited for the Show than they were on Christmas!

Busy week ahead. I have a test tomorrow for my class on Autism, and I need to study this afternoon. I am also finishing some assignments that are due the day of T.G.’s surgery (Feb. 11, by the way-I’ll write a separate post about that). I am getting my hair highlighted Thursday night (birthday gift from TJ). I need to plan the menu for next week and make a grocery list for TJ, plus wash clothes and pack for my trip this weekend. I also need to get everything ready for Sunday School because I have a substitute filling in for me and she doesn't know where I keep anything. I am going to visit my sister. My mom is driving down early Friday morning, and then when I get out of class, I am going to pick up T.G. from preschool. The three of us are going to visit Erin. I am so excited! I won’t be home until sometime on Sunday.

If I don’t post for a few days, it’s because I am carrying out my to-do list. I will definitely post pictures of Kaylee when I get back (or maybe while I’m gone, if I get a chance).
