Happy Birthday Nannie!!

This past Saturday the Burns family traveled to Hueytown to celebrate Nannie's 85th Birthday!!

The most important part of every family get together....time to eat!

Happy Birthday to you!

She was so excited! We had a fabulous ice cream cake!

Tenley enjoying the ice cream cake....some of it ended up on her pretty white shirt but it sure was good!!

Sam was being his solemn self and wouldn't smile for the camera so I had to sneak a side shot!
These two were ready to party with their party hats!!

After lunch the girls all decided to play "yard sale". It was the cutest thing ever! Destiny and Anna Beth were taking their "money" and buying items that the older girls were wanting to sell!
Happy Birthday Nannie!! We Love you and look forward to many more!!

~Let's Dance~

Last week Al and I got to spend some time with our nieces Destiny and Tenley. 
Sweet Tenley wanted to be right in the middle of it!

We enjoyed getting to spend time with them while their mommy and daddy had to attend a visitation of a special friend. Even though the situation wasn't ideal we still loved getting to spend time with them.  The girls' favorite "past time" at Aunt Brooke and Bobo's is playing the Wii especially Just Dance.

This night was no different so we broke out the Wii remotes and turned our living room into a dance floor.  Gotta love spending time with these sweet girls!!

And We Celebrate Again!!

So my computer download has been messed up for the last couple of weeks but here is a post I have had saved for a while :)
Last night the Burns' celebrated yet another National Championship won by our beloved Alabama Crimson Tide!  We gathered as usual about 30 minutes before the game started to try and eat a little bite but most of us just nibble enough to make the nausea feeling go away!

 As the 2011 defending National Champions run onto the field everyone finds a spot to sit or stand for the next three hours.  Some were on the couch, others standing behind the couch, and one seated in a folding chair behind everyone clenching two pom poms that were not to be shaken by anyone other than the owner of them at the beginning of the game.

The kids were being so good playing in their rooms and it was time to get serious.....only this year it didn't take long to realize that we were soon going to be back-to-back Champions and enjoy another glorious year of the Alabama Crimson Tide being yet again the BEST IN THE NATION!!!  And as Saban so proudly spoke at the end of the game....we will enjoy this for a couple of days and then start on next year! ***ROLL TIDE ROLL***

We love the rain these days....

Well, I told you that Al is now the proud owner of a Jeep Wrangler. I have to admit it is a really fun vehicle to have and now we don't dread it raining for several days! We see it as an opportunity to dirty up that pretty yellow jeep!
This past Sunday it had been raining for a few days and Al saw this as another great opportunity. This time he took a couple of others with him.  They had a ball!  Carmen and Anna Beth came back just giggling and arguing which side was "dirtier".  Carmen also told Al that it was supposed to rain again today and he totally needed to call her again.  I know we are going to have many "dirty" and fun times in this Jeep!
