I got a very unexpected call last night around 6pm from a member of our church.
"What are you up to right now?"
"Oh, giving three kids a bath."
"You up for the basketball game tonight?"
Me quickly thinking (Our basketball team sucks, its cold out, and its a 9 o' clock tip off.).
"I've got great seats, and its free."
When Gary said they were great seats he did them an injustice. I have never sat that close to watch a basketball game. These seats were two rows from the floor. I was literally in the game. I could get used to this.
What made the game even better was that the Noles (who I said earlier kinda suck this year) knocked off the Duke Blue Devils who were the Number One team in the country. Sorry Coach K.
Hopefully this will spur a turnaround for the team and as Jeff Cameron says we can all jump back aboard the Tournament Train.
Thanks again Reagan and Gary for the much needed night out.

Game changed from that point on. We couldn't have asked for a better game, especially since the Noles' came out on top 26-17. After giving up and not going to Cheetah's we hunted around downtown Atlanta for some grub, unsuccessfully. On this quest for food I had quite the interesting encounter with a lesbian and a "girl from California." You all can get your heads out of the gutter it was just a very strange exchange which Jason and Rian got quite a kick out of. We surrendered and headed back to the hotel to retire.

While on the back roads of Macon, Georgia I noticed that we were running a bit low on the ole petroleum so I pulled into a little gas mart. When I got out of the Jeep I heard this loud hissing noise. I thought someone left the air pressure pump on. Oh no, it was the back tire. Luckily I was able to pull over to a small parking area and change the tire, thank God for full size spares. Thirty minutes later we were back on the road to try to find I-75.
We finally made it back to Orlando, but not before stopping at a Bojangle's. I must say that it was pretty darn good. Needless to say we were a bit tired the next day.
Here are a few pics from the trip:

Cmon it's free with our ticket stub!

We hit the road on the 22nd to try and beat the traffic down to Orlando. We did beat the traffic but I have to say it still was not an enjoyable ride. Please leave car traveling tips if you got 'em. We got there around 8 and the Critters headed straight to bed. The next morning was rather uneventful aside from Hadley having a little fever. Throughout the day we noticed the fever getting a little worse and I thought her face looked a little splotchy. That night was when things got a little crazy, we started to notice red bumps on her neck. On Christmas Eve we headed to a pediatrician in Orlando to see what the deal was and while we were sitting in the doctors office Hadley developed a full blow, raised red bump rash. Luckily we found out it was some virus called Roseola (or for you science geeks - Exanthema subitum). I say luckily because the rash is apparently the final stage of the sickness.
The infamous Candy Cane Pie and a drink called a Poinsettia. (There were quite a few of these consumed.)
