Heading home... from home...

Momma and I had a great girls day yesterday!

We drove to Gaffney and did some shopping at the outlets then hit up Peppermint Forest for some Christmas tree shopping.

After, we went to pinkberry for a yummy treat!

Check out this new addition to the Newton home!

I started working on the tree for my room!


I agonized over deciding which pieces to choose, but I LOVE the result!
Check out my new topper!

Finished product!

Momma made about 12 of these ornaments with different scenes, but the manger is my favorite!

I also did Papas' tree!

Heading back to OKC today! 2 weeks and 5 days until graduation! Eeeeek!!!

I trotted and I feasted

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday... I love to indulge in yummy food and family time!

Momma, Ali, and I got up early Thursday morning and ran 5 miles in the Turkey Trot.
I beat my time goal last year -- buuuuut I didn't exactly train this year so my goal was to run the entire thing -- no walking!

My shoe and number were ready -- I was not.

Momma WAS!! How cute is she?!

We were all smiles before the run!

Momma and Ali -- our Kenyan -- who I also call The Hare!

Ali and Me (is that incorrect, grammatically?)

We FINISHED!!! The Hare (Ali), The Beast (Momma), and the out-of-shape Tortoise (Me!)

The boys and Momma being silly!

Love this moment! Uncle Bill telling the story where Aunt Lynn forgot the Christmas tree was on top of the car and ran it through the carwash -- hahaha! pretty sure Halley was the only one at the table that hadn't heard it before -- it's his favorite story to tell!

How sweet is this?! Just about as sweet as that baby!

Funny moment of the weekend...
Momma's SUV beeps at you when you don't have your seatbelt on... well, turns out my computer and purse weigh just more than that of a small child... I was driving and decided it was easier to buckle the seat belt than move my stuff! Haha

More updates tomorrow!

Fun with Photobooth

I've always had a good time on my Mac with Photobooth.
And last night, M and I had some fun with it too.
We finally have more than one picture together (and that pic was from a year and a half ago)

Oh, the lovely "fake smile," which M has started calling the "ugly smile." hmmm, not sure how I feel about that one.

"I need a hero!" Uhhhh I think the roles are reversed here...

Ummm that face and the primping of the hair NEVER happen ::wink wink::


For us, this IS normal...

We look like we belong in a Tim Burton movie -- where's Johnny Depp??

Although I've got a sad face on, I love this.

Sometimes you've just got to take the evening off from homework, responsibilities, etc. and just have fun with Photobooth!
