Weekend Review!

There was a storm.....and our favorite shade tree out our back door took a dive! Really!

Shucks! It took down a few pine trees and bush's along the side of our garage, as well. Thankfully, it did not hit the garage. That's a lot of wood for chopping!

The falling of our tree threw a chunk of my hostas and large rocks right out of the flower bed border.

And, we enjoyed Friday football. GO BULLDOGS!

It was Homecoming weekend. Blurry picture, but, that is my son, second couple from the right. He escorted our bands baton twirler, who was nominated for Homecoming Queen.

I do love a good half-time program. Great band....good music!

And, their was Saturday tennis...a nice tournament played down south.

And, this is what you look like at 3:00 in the afternoon, after successfully cleaning up the court----yep, every last opponent! Can you tell it was a chilly day? It was. I wore my winter coat for the first time. Ha!

Funny.....behind the courts, as you can see, is a football field. This particular school was hosting a Band Festival. So, we were entertained by great band performances from many different schools, while we watched tennis. Very cool!

I guess this is how you pose when you win GOLD!

Ha! Funny guy!

And, then their was the homecoming dance. It was quite a weekend.

Oh to be young and have all that energy! Good times...great memories!

White Stuff and Faces I Love!!

Woke -up very early one morning and found this in our drive-way. You may be asking yourself what this could be...no need to wait any longer it is......

THIS! Yep...we were tp'd something fierce. I am pretty sure it was girls because all the way up our stairway and flower planters, toilet paper was delicately draped and tied in bows around the largest part of some of my plants. The stair railing had tp meticulously woven into it's rails and their was a bow of tp in our cats outdoor little house on the porch. Bows of tp were tied on the outdoor lights and as previously seen, squares of tp went from our garage area out to the dirt road in front of our house...ha! Had a very good laugh.
We met up with our very, very, very best of the best friends before children headed back to college and high school.
These two boys...funniest boys in the land. Such good humor and personalities.

My how they have grown! And, they eat a lot, too! Ha!

Got to love these girls......and,

...these girls, too!

We are happy and proud mama's! So thankful for good children who work so hard at what they do! We love these kids to pieces!

How is the school and work year treating all of you this fall? Between my friend and I we have 2 children in high school, 4 children going to 3 different colleges, and one married----yep, that would be, Jenna. Time marches on, because I am sure it was just yesterday that we were holding babies, nursing wounds, singing lullabies, reading stories, going to the playground to swing, fixing pretty bows in hair, etc. Sigh....those were lovely days, too. xo
