National Championship trophies, ice skating and Miss America





We had a great weekend here at the blog plantation! 
Friday, Lord Breland and I 
ran some errands and 
GOT TO SEE THIS!!

Yes friends, that is THE trophy. The National Championship trophy won by our Crimson Tide. 
The official trophy is actually sitting on top of the University's pedestal.
The crystal elephants are beautiful aren't they?
All the championships are engraved on the plaque.
They are selling this version for your personal collection
 
it is Waterford and beautiful!
We had lunch at the local coffee shop
Check out some of the Lattés
 
yeah they are wonderful!


We got the Princess from school 
and learned that she made a 106 on her spelling test! 
WOW!!

We rounded the night out with pizza, game night, and a movie.

Saturday, we took the children ice skating

The Prince had been trying to tape spoons
to his shoes
to make ice skates at home 
so actually having them on THRILLED HIM!
 

The Princess kept taunting her Daddy
Who finally joined her on the ice.
Even if he played the whole time
 

The Prince just sat on the Alabama Hockey Team"s rink
and dreamed of the future

Then the children had a C A R meeting
(children of the American Revolution)

where the Princess gave a report on The Pony Express
I enjoyed seeing dear friends
 
Then the Princess and I watched (with broken hearts)
Our hopes had been that our dear sweet 
who is the reigning 
 
would win.
She is from our little city.
Sadly it was not to be.
So needless to say,
today we rested and lounged around
in front of the fireplace in our jammies. 

 Can't wait to hear about your weekend!

Thanks for dropping by Y'all!

Oh Jessica! The picture of the Prince on the Bama A... I would frame that and hang it on a wall in a heartbeat! What a perfect picture!

I adore the fact that the Princess was taunting her Daddy. She and my girls would get along just fine :)

Have a wonderful week my dear friend!

I know that all those girls work hard to even make it to the Miss America pagent -- quite an accomplishment -- we in Virginia were mighty proud though! And our hometown boy Jason Mraz won two grammy's as well! It all sort of warms us up from these arctic temps!
