Chocolates and Work

Nothing better than chocolates before bedtime. Gosh I sure hope Matt is staying up with them!! :-)
I tried to get a picture of them together but this was the best I could get.. they were so funny with their chocolate in their teeth! Those two love each other so much and it makes my heart full to watch them together.

With Matt's new job I am having to pick up Hunter and his friend from school more often. By the time I get back in town and take his friend to his house, I don't have time to take Hunter home. So off to my work he goes! He has enjoyed camping out and hiding under my desk. The boy never eats at home but by golly he eats every snack I have while he is at my office. He eats the entire 1 hour or more. Love it.. finally gonna get some meat on those bones. My little skinny boy!!

The boys in the woods

What better way to spend your afternoon than in the woods. We have been so tired and over this cold weather so as soon as the sun came out one day we were out to explore. The boys had a blast and so did we! This is on our property where we are building our house, the boys haven't gotten to explore it too much but were excited to see that there were a couple of creeks and a bunch of hills. Hunter was facinated with the fact that we saw deer tracks and everything!

The loves of my life!
We first took a picture with me standing behind them.. uhm yeah doesn't work when you are 5'1" so up on the tree I went :-)

Matt telling Hunter what all he needed to do to climb a limb and I guess basically fall off of it. haha!
Hunter coming off of his limb....
Picture perfect. I hope Matt realizes how much those boys follow in his footsteps. They look up to him to much and honestly I hope they become just like him. I love it!

Before Matt started his new job, he and I decided to take a weekend and go away for a little bit. We decided to go to Memphis because neither one of us had been there before. Let's just say we won't be going back there any time soon but he and I had fun spending time together. We did enjoy going to Graceland though. The commercialized side across the street from the house is very cheesy but was neat to see his cars and other sorts. The house was very cool, it was surreal to be in the same house that he was in and even in the same room where he passed away. I think Matt was more amazed than I was because I somewhat knew what to expect. Since I am the Elvis fan of the family, I  was thrilled to see that he enjoyed it too!!

This was his mother's bedroom. We were not able to go upstairs and look around. They block it off out of respect and privacy for the family.

Bar in the media room

Game room. There is actual fabric all over the room..ceilings and walls
The famous Jungle Room



Priscilla's Wedding dress

Sad to say but this is actually where Elvis passed away. There are fresh flowers delivered there every single day to pay respects to him. This is honestly where Matt started feeling surreal about the whole thing. Just thinking about all the history in that whole room.

It cost $5.00 attend one of his shows!

We also got to take part of the traditional Peabody Hotel ducks. They have ducks that get the royal treatment and are escorted down a red carpet to the fountain in the middle of the hotel at 11 each morning, then at 5 they walk back down the red carpet and up to their suite.
