Last Saturday Brian and I took the boys to the SEC championship game(LSU vs. Tenn.)
The tickets were originally for my brother(a LSU freak) Brian and the boys. Billy couldn't get off of work long enough to make the trip from Louisiana to Georgia, so I went. I was very surprised to find that I enjoyed the game. The boys are into ALL sports, if it's on they watch it. They especially like Braves baseball and LSU football. My husband is not a sports fan(usually) but I think the boys are rubbing off on him!! They each knew how they wanted to dress for the game. They looked a little crazy but they had such a good time. LSU didn't play that well in the first half but they came together in the end and won the game. My girlfriend Lena watched Hannah for us(THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!) And Brian and I had a nice day with our boys!!

Sorry the quality of these pictures isn't the best. It's amazing the techonolgy in 12 years! The first two pictures were taken by Ms. C(Brian's mom) the first day we brought Alex home. The other ones are just one's that I thought were too cute! Go ahead and make the comments on how young we were.(We were 20 and 22) Brian and I have never had a problem with that and we would not have changed one single thing!
On this day 12 years ago Brian and I were given the sweetest most precious miracle God has ever given us, our first child. Alexander Michael Johnson was born on December 4, 1995 at 5:56 pm. He was 7 pounds 11 ounces. He came on his own 11 days early. From the first moment I saw this child I was amazed that he was mine. He is the most beautiful thing God has ever given me. He was the sweetest baby, almost always happy. As a child he is still the same sweet boy, almost always happy!! Alex is growing into a beautiful young man, he is a wonderful role model for his brother and sister. I am amazed and a little sad(Okay I'm crying like a baby writing this!) that the time seems to be flying by. These last 12 years I have learned so much about myself, that this little person has taught me. I am so proud to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet angel. I hope you know what a true blessing you have been everyday. And always stay true to the person that you are!

While Toni was here we all went down to Atlantic Station. I have been around it but never went there. It was really cool. They have different kinds of stores and resturants. Right now for the holidays there is a huge tree set up and on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 and 9:00 they make it "snow", its a machine with this foamy stuff. It looks real and the kids thought it was cool. We had dinner down there at the Fox Sports Grill. Everyone had a nice evening.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! I really love every little piece of it. I get very getty when I find my perfect turkey(26 pounds...you know how we do!). I love the preparation for cooking and baking. The way my house smells when everything is in the oven. And just seeing my family and friends enjoy a really nice day. That to me is the best holiday ever. This year my girlfriend Toni came in from Louisiana to spend the holiday with us!! We had Ms.C and Mr. J and my grandmother also join us for dinner. It was a wonderfully relaxing day. I think that today I have finally come out of my turkey coma!! All my leftovers are gone!!
While I was in Louisiana Brian let our puppy Lola sleep anywhere in the house she wanted. She is crate trained and has never had a problem sleeping in it. Well now she has taken to another place to sleep...our basket in the family room with all of our blankets!!
Hannah and I had a nice relaxing trip. As soon as we got home it was full speed ahead! Hannah had her Thanksgiving Play. She was a pilgrim woman....sooo cute. She knew all of her songs and remember her line she had to say 4 times " Mercy Me".
