We Are Family...

...I got two of my cousins, with me. Since we are preparing for the big move, we took a day trip to Huntsville so the Hubby could finish packing the garage and the attic. Clearly, the type of packing that didn't involve this Rookie Mom.

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a great lunch at the Putter Parlour. Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend. You can really see just how much Cookie adores her Rue. If Rue can do it, Cookie will do whatever she can to do it as well!

In this group you have Cookie aka Gue, Rue, Lou and Moo!

And in this picture you have Cookie seeing how much she can get away with. Like strapping herself into the back seat as if I wouldn't notice her vacant car seat. Bottom line, don't let that precious little smile fool you. She is pretty creative when it comes to getting her way. Clearly she is her father's child. Okay, Okay - truth be told- she is a spitting image of her Mother.

On a side note, I would like to send a big CONGRATULATIONS out to my older sister for graduating with her Masters this weekend. She worked her bum off, gave birth and even managed to score a new position all before graduating! We are so proud of you and you DESERVE all the good fortunes that have been blessed upon you.

Blame It On the Alcohol

We live in the burbs where we are close to a local grocery store, a nail salon and of course the neighborhood liquor store. On Friday we stopped by our local liquor store to pick up a few of Daddy treats.

Apparently, Bud Light is so 2008 and the Hubby has turned into somewhat of a sophisticated Beer drinker. I guess a keg of beer and a dixie cup are a thing of the past. But hey, after a week alone with the kiddos I couldn't blame him.

As, I waited in the back of the liquor store in the Hubby's VIP parking spot (next to the dumpster) I noticed that someone may have just been testing out their own merchandise when they labeled the back door...

I guess I should also mention that this is the same liquor store that shoe polished their store windows with the the tag line of...


When they first open their doors.

Classy! In the words of Jamie Foxx, I guess they can really just blame their marketing/labeling decisions on the Alcohol.
