Mac's Birthday and One Big Apple !!

On Saturday and Sunday it rained all day in Destin, but Mom and I got some good shopping time in. Saturday afternoon Mac even went with us for awhile..

On Saturday evening we went out for Mac's Birthday dinner. We went to Cajun Steamer, which is where he always picks to go. But no complaints from me.. I am not one to turn down great seafood.

Mac and I

So as we were waiting for our food to come my mother puts a fake apple on the table and says.. "Isn't that a BIG apple?".. We just kinda of looked at her and she said it again this time looking right at ME !! I started to get a little smile on my face and said "BIG APPLE".. And she said that for my 30 Birthday she was taking me to NEW YORK !! I have been wanting to go for sometime and my mother loves it there.. Just me and my mother in New York.. that is scary !!!
All Mac could say was, "Isn't this my birthday dinner and my sister gets a trip to New York at my birthday dinner"... We have laughed and laughed... We joked for the rest of the time I was home saying that if I got a trip to New York at Mac's Birthday dinner... what would he get on my birthday !!! Sunday, March 15th was Mac's real Birthday.. His 17th !! I can't believe that my little brother is 17 !!! WOW !!!
Here he is after opening his presents. And no I didn't get anything else then, but I was still gloating about NEW YORK !!!! Mac and his Red, White and Blue Viking Cake...
We didn't have any candles so Dad held up his lighter for Mac to "blow out" !! Tuesday came way too soon. I love spending time with my family and it always goes by too fast. But I missed Michael so much and was ready to get home and see him.. It was such a nice surprise to walk in my door and see these Yellow Roses... Awwwww... he missed me too !!!

Going Home for Mac

For the last few years, Spring Break has been at the perfect time for me. Well yes taking an entire week off of work is perfect time anytime, but March is great. Mac's Birthday is March 15th and Baseball Season is also going on during that time. So it works out that I can go home, see the family, celebrate Mac's Birthday, see Mac play Baseball, and more.. all in a handful of days !!!
I got to Destin on Friday, March 13th and Mom meet me at the house. After a very productive trip to Target, it was off to watch some baseball. FWB's big rivalry is Choctaw and we were playing at their field. It ended up being a great game... The score went back and worth for the first few inning and then we lead for the rest. But the final score was determined by the final inning... We won !!! I tried to take a picture of the score board, but it went blank before I could.. Sore Losers !!!
My camera was going crazy trying to figure out what to focus on.. the lines on the net were driving my camera crazy.. So even though I took one zillion pictures, only a few turned out. But I think I got some good ones.

During the National Anthem !!
This is my favorite picture of the night.
I love to see him smile !!!

It is always so special to get to watch him play. When he was little I was able to watch him play so much more. As I have gotten older and moved away those times are not as much. I am a very proud sister and very loud cheerleader for him !!!
GO MAC !!!!!! Way to Go !!!!

I Had Given Up !!!

Just a few days ago I wrote on my facebook page..... "Jessa has given up on snow, so bring on Spring" !!!!
Mr. Weatherman.. Do you know it is March 1.... In my mind, March has always meant warmer weather, blonder hair, and tanner skin... not snow... But who is complaining, not me !!!!
The puppies woke me up this morning a little before 7:30. All I was thinking was, Jessa I know the weather said it might snow, but it probably is not.. and even if it was, just a little...
I walked out of the bedroom and screamed "Oh My Goodness".. Michael jumped up out of bed because he thought something was wrong.. But I had a huge smile on my face and said "It is snowing.. A LOT" !!!!
Kenize, Shug, and myself went out back and started to play in the snow..
I went in front of the house to take a few pictures.. These were taken early.. The snow continued to come down for hours more.. So before it had stopped, it was even more white than this..
Winter Wonderland !! A look out into my neighborhood.. Just beautiful !!!
My prissy Kenzie was not all about playing in the snow...
But Shug loved it.. Although he was a little cold..
And I LOVED it more than anyone..
I went out front to start building a snowman and finally Michael came out and joined me.. Which lead to a huge snowball fight...

I lost the snowball fight.. Big Time !!

Hello My name is Jessa.. I am from Florida and this is my first EVER snowman..
I think I need to practice...
As fast as I was building the snowman, Shug was eating it... I know it looks a little sad, but come on SHUG... You do not have to Pee on It !! Yes that is what that yellow is !!!

What a special and fun day.. I wish we had more like this.. But I guess it snowing in Alabama only once a season is what makes it so special..
So as for as March 1, 2009... Let it Snow Let it Snow...
And as far as the tan I would love to have... My cheeks are so red from all the snow that Michael threw in my face, does that count ?????
