ALSO, I wanted to let you know that my Heather, my mom, and I went to visit my grandmother at the nursing home in Meridian. Thanks to all of you who have remembered her in your prayers! We had a great visit with her and she seemed to be doing really well! Praise God!

*My sister, Kristen, is back at work after being out for maternity leave. She's having a very difficult time (if you've been through this, then you understand!). She needs comfort!
*My grandmother (mom's mom- "Mamaw") was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's and has been placed in a home in Meridian. Although it's difficult on our family, we know she's where she needs to be now. Please pray for her and the rest of my family.
*My other grandmother (dad's mom- "Nana") also needs prayer. My grandfather passed away in November, and I know things are still very hard for her. She's been unbelievably strong so far, and if you know her, you know what I mean. She's an AMAZING woman.
*My dear friend, June Scoggins, and her family need prayer too. Her mom is 90 years old (wow!) and has not been doing well lately. Mrs. June does so much for her mom, and I know it's very difficult for their entire family.
I appreciate ALL of your prayers for these people! PLEASE let me know of there's someone/something specifically that I can pray for!

So, it's just become sort of a yearly thing for Candy and me. It's something (well,really, someONE) we both feel very passionate about. Who in the world could I be speaking of? That's right...George.
This past weekend, I went to my 5th George Strait concert, each of which were with Candy. I started going in 2003, and I've been going every year since. If you're a George fan, you'll understand the excitement that we feel each time he walks on stage (especially when he sings "Amarillo"...wow). If you're NOT a George fan, then I'm convinced that there may very well be something wrong with you and you should seek professional help.
It has worked out each year that George has played in either Birmingham or Memphis, both of which are fairly close to here. It's very convenient now that Candy and Chad live in Hernando, which is only about 20 minutes from Memphis. There are a couple of things you should know about the 2 of us when we get in "George mode" : 1. We sing every song along with him, caring very little about what other people around us are thinking. 2. We wear our "I Love George Strait" buttons very proudly, knowing that everyone there is secretly a little jealous. Here are some pictures of us at George Strait concerts over the years. (I was pre- digital the first year we went, and I'm unable to put my hands on pictures from that concert, so these pictures are from the past 4 years!). Oh, and you don't even have to say it, I know I looked pretty hot with braces in the 2005 picture!
-Four jobs I have had in my life:
*2nd grade teacher at Sudduth
*counselor at Camp Lake Stephens
*employee at CLC (daycare)
*Aspen Bay Candles
-Four movies I watch over and over:
*The Sound of Music
*Waiting for Guffman
-Four Places I have lived:
*Oxford, MS (only for a summer...don't worry...I got out of Oxford as quickly as I could)
* MSU campus (still in Starkville, I know)
-Four TV shows I love to watch:
-Four places I have been on vacation:
-Four websites I visit daily:
*Starkville School District homepage
-Four of my favorite foods:
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!

It's been several weeks since I've posted, but as you can imagine, with my sisters in town (not to mention my precious nephew), New Year's festivities, and lots of "family time," I've been just a little busy.
