Roll Tide

Zach & Kim had an event to go to the other night and several college mascots were there. They took the girls in and let them have their picture made with Big Al. Unfortunately, I think Aubie was a little more entertaining and the girls came home talking about how funny he was. I won't post the pictures Zach took of my ALABAMA girls with that tiger. ;-)

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse

When I taught, my favorite children's book author was Kevin Henkes. I used to spend an entire six-weeks doing a unit using all of his books. When we named Lilly, I seriously spelled it the way I did because of "Lilly," the Kevin Henkes character. Lilly had book character day at school a couple of weeks ago, and she decided to be "Lilly" from Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. They are surprisingly similar characters ;-)
