Because Lee's cousin is a Rockette we got to go backstage and check out the workings of the place! What an awesome experience the whole night was! Thanks again, B family!
I've lived in Nashville for over 2 years now and this is the first time I've ever been inside the Grand Ole Opry house. What better way to see it than with the Radio City Rockettes performing? Lee's cousin is a Rockette and they treated us to a night out on the town! We went to dinner before and actually braved the Opry Mills Mall for bargains! Thanks guys!

Friday we gave the B family a grand tour of Nashville albeit from our car mostly since it was so cold. We did a drive by through downtown at the Sommet Center, Ryman Auditorium, Vanderbilt University, and the Greek Parthenon.
Our friends, Lee & Tricia, and their kids Ty and Katie drove all the way from OK to talk turkey! We had a great Thanksgiving meal, but the real feast came when Jared and Lee both serenaded us with their unique, harmonious sound. For dessert, they serenaded the elders and sisters, too. They sang in BYU Men's Chorus together and serenaded me on the day Jared and I were married. Now, 11 years later, we had the privilege of listening to them again. It sounded even better in person. They are so talented they should cut a record--we are in Music City, afterall! Thanks to Meesh for the use of the guitars!

Here is a small portion of the group I went with to see the Twilight movie. These are some of the most amazing women I have ever met! They are part of my ward family and I am so happy to call them my sistas. The movie was awesome! I loved every minute of it--especially when Jacob showed up. . .

As I was looking on Picasa for something to blog about today:
Coco: That you, mommy.
Coco: That "you in big twubble" face, mommy.
Coco: You mad at me?
Me: Not at all
Coco: No. . .in the picture, mommy. Nebbermind.
Picture was taken by Jared when he knew I didn't want him to--HE was in twubble.
On Monday, I decided to challenge my fundamental beliefs that high-end malls are bad. I decided that I should just go on right ahead and use my $100 gift card that I tried to sell to others in order to use the money elsewhere. I am so happy I did! The sisters got to go with me to the Mall at Green Hills (out of their area) since it was their P-Day and we met up with the Green Hills sisters, one of which is Sister Thacker! I got to give that girl a HUGE hug and laugh and talk with her again! We shopped (I got a $60 skirt for $22.94) and went to lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Oh yeah. . .I still have $77.06 to spend. I guess we'll have to make another trip! BUMMER ;)
