Thanksgiving Break

Friendsgiving 2017

Our UT tailgate was a lot smaller this year, but just as sweet and special.  

We visited Bert's work during break as well.

On Thursday (Thanksgiving) morning, we woke up and drove to Melanie's house in Mississippi. We spent the night in Memphis and had breakfast with my mom Friday morning.  We drove to Nashville on Friday afternoon.  Busy, busy, busy, but we loved it!

More Fall Pics

We had pictures taken for our Christmas card.  It was freezing and wet outside, but I got what I needed:)

Elizabeth's soccer team had a decent season, but an incredible tournament.  They earned the championship and Elizabeth earned the MVP.

Caroline loved cheering this season and the 1st grade football team also won the championship game.  Caroline earned the Loud and Proud award... she was definitely the loudest girl out there!

Bert and I enjoyed our 10th anniversary date night at the Sundial.

We all enjoyed Chalktoberfest at the square.

The mamas in our neighborhood all wore matching shirts to the Bad Moms 2 movie.  It was so much fun!!

Elizabeth wanted to be a headless horseman for Halloween.  I have no idea where she got that idea, but I said okay.  She dressed up as that for our neighborhood fall festival.

My neighborhood besties with our little girls:)

Elizabeth decided that she couldn't move well enough from house to house in her headless horseman costume.  So she dug through our costume bin and came up with this 80's girl costume.  I was pretty impressed.
Caroline never wavered... she was always Moana!

TOTY Pep Rally

Being named Teacher of the Year was one of the most overwhelming privileges of my life.  There have been so many exciting events that came along with it.  The most exciting so far was the breakfast and pep rally.  That was a day I will never forget!

My cheering section was incredible!

My favorite teachers!  Alissa and Christine made this day absolutely perfect!

My favorite radio personalities were the emcees for the pep rally.  I was a little star struck.

My students were all wearing this shirt they designed:)
Alissa and Christine took my girls to breakfast so that Bert and I could enjoy the TOTY breakfast kid-free.  They made signs for me too.

Afterwards we all went to lunch together on the square.... the perfect day!
