20 Ways to Determine if you are a real Alabamian

I got this in an email from a friend and thought it was pretty accurate and good for a laugh...

20 Ways to Determine if you are a real Alabamian

1. You can properly pronounce Arab, Cahaba, Opelika, Sylacauga, Oneonta, Eufaula, and Wedowee.

2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states are: sissies.

3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

4. You know that the true value of a parking space is determined: not by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

5. Stores don't have bags or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies.

6. You've seen people wear bib overalls at funerals.

7. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

8. You measure distance in minutes. ("It's about 5 minutes down the road")

9. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.

11. You know cowpies are not made of beef.

12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

13. You have known someone who has a belt buckle bigger than your fist.

14. You aren't surprised to find movie rentals, ammunition, beer, and bait all in the same store

15. A Mercedes-Benz isn't a status symbol. A Ford F-350 4x4 Extended Bed Crew Cab Dually is.

16. You know everything goes better with Ranch Dressing, or Ketchup.

17. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to multiply.

18. You actually get these jokes and are "fixin' " to send them to your friends.

19. You have used your heater and air-conditioner in the same day.

Finally: You are 100% Alabamian if you have ever had this conversation:

20. "You wanna coke?" "Yeah." "What kind?" "Dr Pepper."

Gracie and her dolly, Patty, in the tub.
She thought it was hilarious when I covered her up!
He's "porkin'" up a little now! (He likes solid food!)
I love how sweet he smells when he's all lotioned up.

Finally, Christmas Morning!

Daddy with the present Gracie picked out for him.
Harrison with some cool new books from Santa...Score!
Me and the kiddos; the best presents ever (Aside from JESUS)! We are in our Christmas Eve jammies (we always open one gift after church on Christmas Eve- jammies) anyway, I wish you could see my entire outfit. Gracie helped Daddy pick them out. The pants are deep red with white reindeer all over, and the tank is the blue with snowflakes you see above. I LOVE them, but boy can you see me coming! So sweet! I am one lucky mama.

This was too much fun!!!!

More Fun...

Harrison's Look-alikes

Celebrity Look-a-Likes...cont.

OK, the funniest part of the post below was that Jane Curtain was on my list... You know from Kate and Allie and 3rd Rock From the Sun... but, alas, the impact is lost because her face was cut off for some reason. On the brighter side, It also said Jessica Biel was a 75% resemblance to me!Maye I could be her MUCH older, MUCH heavier sister...?On a different picture I tried, my celebrities were Ali Landry, Katie Holmes, Sela Ward, Addrienne Curry, Rebecca Gayhart, Anne Hathaway,and again this Lacey Turner (whoever she is) and MAria Menounos too. Anyway, this was hilarious and so much fun. I had to make myself stop!

My Celebrity Look-a-likes

Christmas Eve in Dothan

Aunt Lulu, Gracie, and Nana outside of church. Gracie talked throught the entire candlelight service.
We went to Olive Garden for dinner. I had been wanting a good carbo-load before my diet started!

I had to add this picture because Gracie reminded me of Shirley Temple in her pose. Just try to ignore the WIDE-LOAD beside her!!!! (Now you see why I had diet on my mind!)We have one more Christmas post and then I'll move into 2008...

Check out my Slide Show!

Christmas City visit

My mom and I took Gracie tiny town nearby that has a little village and some Christmas lights to drive through and look at. It was not very exciting for the grown-ups as things were rundown and dirty, but she enjoyed it. Rudolph was hilarious because his costume was held on with a rope belt and masking taoe in the back! She was not too thrilled to stand next to him!
Merry Christmas!
Warming up by the fire with Nana

Ho Ho Ho!

My Cutie Pies

Gracie is the BEST big sister! She is so helpful. Harrison cracks up at her. She can make him laugh much easier than the rest of us. I hope this bond lasts throughout their lives.

China Group Christmas Social

OK, I know I am LATE posting Christmas pics, but having 2 blessings is currently kicking my butt! Our local China group gets together a few times a year. Our group has grown so much in the last year. We had a Christmas social at one familys' house. The girls and boy played outside, made ornaments, made reindeer food, ate potluck dinner, exchanged Christmas books in a drawing, and had a surprise visitor! What a busy but fun time! This picture should be immediately after the last one of Gracie with Santa. When he left, the girls ran to see if he got on his sleigh. The eldest informed us that he was not the real Santa because he got into a car! Too funny!
Here is MOST of the gang... aren't they precious? We decided to do a "tan couch photo" like the red couch!

Ally and Daddy
You know who...
Ready to feed the reindeer!
She loved her new Little People Christmas lift-the-flap book.
In deep conversation with the "big guy"
I'll try to post some more Christmas pics over the next few days!
