Trip to Tennessee and More Birthday Celebrations for Me!

The 3rd through the 6th we were in Tennessee for a few days. When we arrived there was still snow on the ground from a big snow they had gotten a couple of days before. It was the first time for Reagan to see snow. We took Justin's dad his car back. He had let us borrow it after Justin's wreck.
On the 4th Justin had to appear in court for a ticket he got for the wreck. The judge wanted him to come to traffic school to tell his story so some of the people there for car seat violations would realize how quickly things can happen and that they need to put their kids in their seats so they will be safe. (It really ticks me off when people don't put kids in car seats...anyway.) But since Justin drove all the way from Alabama to make the court appearance he decided that was punishment enough and threw out the ticket. After court we went to see my dad. We went up to the middle school he is the principal at, which is also the middle school I attended. Reagan got to meet some of my teachers. :) Then we hung out at Dad's for a while and they took us out to dinner.
On the 5th, Justin's dad took us out for my birthday(which was in January) since he had not seen us since before then. We went to my favorite sushi place, Sakura, in Jackson, TN.
On the 6th, my Mom's family had their usual birthday gathering. They usually get together once a month and celebrate the birthdays of everyone who has one that month. My grandmother's birthday is in February so we did ours together. My cousin, Erin, also has a January birthday, but she lives in NYC so she wasn't there. :(
After that, we headed back to AL.
Whew! Lots of stuff in just a few days! On our way home Justin's dad called and told him he just totalled the car we brought back to him.. I think we drove it more than he did. On top of that, right after we got home we found out Justin's childhood friend died in a car accident and he drove back to do the funeral on the 9th. Our new car now has over 2,000 miles on it. But hey, that's what cars are for! :)
Reagan's official first time seeing snow.

"Daddy, why is Mommy making me touch this cold stuff?"

Yes, folks, that's my husband. His Dad doesn't look too amused either. :)

Late Birthday dinner with the Paschall's.

The good looking end of the table. :)

Birthday lunch at a Mexican restaurant. That's what I'm talkin about!

The birthday girls, minus Erin.

Can't you tell he loves me so much.

Uncle Brett kept whining for us to pick her up because she was drooling on his shirt. Her response, "Fine then, I'll just squeeze your nose." :)

Reagan decided this was a good way to entertain herself when we stopped to eat on the way home. Yes, my child is chewing a sock.


Reagan and I have not been feeling too well. Last night her fever got up to 101.8, but it is down around 99 now. I'm really hoping we feel better today! We are already going to have to miss church tonight and I really don't want to miss the Lady Vols game we are supposed to go to in Tuscaloosa tomorrow! Also, today Reagan is 6 months so I'm really going to try to get a 6 month post done today. So far she's not really been up for making cute pictures, so we'll just have to see. :/ You may get a picture of a pretty pitiful looking little girl instead.
