Yeah, we had great seats!!! I think this is when she pointed at me and smiled. You think I'm kidding? I'm totally serious.

Another great shot from our great seats.

Reba and Kelly making their grand entrance, singing "Sweet Dreams" It was AWESOME!!!
What a night to remember. I know it was a couple of weeks ago, but I still had to post some pictures!

Happy Halloween!!!

We had so much fun today taking pictures at our friend's house!!! She really decked out her kitchen with a bale of hay, corn stalks, pumpkins, the works! Then she took these (and many more) ADORABLE pictures of Olivia in her Halloween costume. THANKS, LINDSEY!!! She was so sweet to do this for us. And I must say, her boys looked so cute in their costumes, too! Olivia is my little princess. She acts like a princess, loves anything to do with princesses, and will tell you in a heartbeat who her favorite princess is...CINDERELLA!!! She is outgrowing EVERYTHING lately, so I bit off a bit more than I could chew trying to make this costume for her. Luckily, my good friend Nicole stepped in and pretty much sewed the entire thing! She did an amazing job and Olivia is SOOO happy to have a new Cinderella dress that actually fits! Olivia is such a joy and I hope I can really cherish these moments while they last...

OK, so I have some great friends. Lots of them. But two of them topped the charts on Friday night by giving me the best early birthday present ever! THEY TOOK ME TO THE REBA/KELLY CONCERT!!!! That's right, Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson are touring together, and most of you know what a HUGE Reba fan I am. I LOVE HER!!! It was an amazing concert. They were both on stage the entire time. If Reba was singing one of her songs, Kelly was either singing with her as a duet, or singing backup. If Kelly was singing her get the idea. It was pretty cool. AND....REBA POINTED AT ME AND MADE EYE CONTACT!!!! I promise, I have witnesses. I won't bore you with the details, but I swear it's true. We had GREAT seats not far from the corner of the stage, and every time she came to our side of the stage, I went crazy because she was so close. I know I'm a little bit nuts, but boy do I love her music! Another cool part is that the whole show was opened by Melissa Peterman who did a hilarious stand-up comedy routine. She played Barbara Jean, one of my favorite characters on Reba's TV show. She was so funny and even did a bit in the middle of the show when Reba and Kelly sang the theme song from the show. We had so much fun, and I know I thanked them like a hundred times that night, but here it is in writing: THANKS CHRIS AND CAROLYN LIKE A MILLION TIMES!!!! You guys rock. Chris took some great pictures and even got "Fancy" and "Because of You" on video!!! I will post them as soon as I get them. What a great weekend!!!

Long overdue pictures sister took these gorgeous pictures of Olivia just after she turned three back in July. I am finally sharing them with all of you! I just love these and can't wait to get all the edited pictures back so I can plaster them all over my house! Thanks again, Sherry! On a side note, Olivia has been in dance class for almost 2 months now and is LOVING it! She has two little friends from our neighborhood that are in the same class and they are so cute! They are learning a Christmas dance for their recital in December. They will be Christmas trees in a small production of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and I can't wait!!! Not much else is happening in our neck of the woods. Life is good!
