Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

So every Sunday night the girls and I cuddle up on the couch and watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Mike has his football...we have Makeover. I love this time and look forward to it every week. So I was thrilled when I heard they were coming to our area. I tried to volunteer, but wasn't chosen...bummer. But the girls and I still got to the big reveal today and shout "Move That Bus!" We had to wait 7 hours in the rain and we really couldn't see much...but we were there! And hey, we might even make it on the show, as the cameras scanned the crowd by us several times! We'll see. It's suppose to air sometime in October. We even got to listen to Ashley Tisdale perform today (she plays Sharpay in High School Musical). They girls were excited about that, but disappointed she had brown hair instead of Blond today. :) We got to see Michael, Paige and Ty from Extreme Makeover which was cool too! We even made the evening news. You can see it at: http://www.ky3.com/home/video/51348352.html - with my big line "we brought ponchos and umbrellas". :)
On a bitter sweet note...I noticed Morgan "growing up" before my eyes today. She liked the ponchos we made until we got there...then she didn't like the attention..."Why is everyone looking at us?". She thought I was talking too loud on my cell phone today. What, my daughter who has 2 levels...off and loud...thought I was too loud on my phone?! It was the first time I think I "embarrassed" her. It was a strange moment. I'm sure it will be the first of many. I guess I can't be "cool" forever! :)

All in all today, I think it will be a fun memory as the years go by...remember when we sat in the rain for 7 hours to yell "Move that Bus!" :)
