Another attempt to catch up

Another catch up...things are good and busy! Ike's boss gave us tickets to Ole Miss and Mississippi State basketball game for Christmas. :) We thoroughly enjoyed it. :) I have grown to love this place...I love this next picture, not of us but of all the people behind us. Did they know they were making the picture?? Should have smiled at least!After the game we went to visit our friend's Connie and Derrick. They recently had a baby! Cy he is precious, but then all of their kids are. Connie amazes me! She is a stay at home mother of three and a preacher's wife. Both of those have to be a calling from the Lord. Let me tell you I don't think I am called to either. She has her hands full, and she has the most well behaved, sweetest kids so I can't imagine if one was rumbustious. I don't think she will mind me sharing this...I hope any way ha! We are sitting on her couch talking and she is feeding Cy and all the sudden she realizes she has a sucker in her hair. Hilarious! I am begging Connie to start blogging her life! I think it would make for interesting reading. She is so great though so calm and laid back. I am just praying I am half the mom she is one day! We also got to go to church with them and hear Derrick preach, he did a great job! We had such a good time which we always do with the Wilson's. Here are a few pictures. I didn't get one of their daughter Lainey. She was busy at the moment. Lainey let us watch Toy Story 3 with her, and we both loved it! I can't wait till we get to watch movies like that! When we were leaving she was asking her parents to watch it again for the 4th time in 2 days! HA. LOVE. IT.Ike's new buddy
Other news: Ike booked a cruise for us for our 3rd anniversary! I am beyond excited! The countdown is on! Since he booked it though I have become slightly obsessed. I want to see everyone's pictures from cruises and just love talking to anyone who has been on one. I am not sure why I feel the need to know everything I can. I read the forums on Carnival's sight like everyday! I am a weirdo. This does help with encouragement needed to stay focused on the diet! :) It will also be to celebrate Ike finishing this semester then we are just a summer away from graduation!!
This past weekend was nice. I cleaned out my closest for our new roommate. My sister's husband got a new job and will be out of town for most of the next four months so she is going to stay with us. I will be living amongst the studiers!
This past weekends we got to on a double date with Sam and Candace. We saw the Jennifer Anniston and Adam Sandler movie. I thought it was really funny or maybe I enjoyed Ike laughing so hard, but does have a little crud humor. If they had ask me I may have rated it R, but they didn't.

You just made me tear up. Thank you for those kind, although probably not all true, words.
