Monday Musings

It's beginning to feel like fall here in NE Louisiana.  I actually turned on the heat one morning this weekend to just take the chill out of the house.  I look forward to us turning on the the gas logs but it will need to be a bit more chilly.  There's nothing like backing up to a fire on a cold day!
 We had a great time in Branson, Mo. with our friends this past week.  We saw some great Christmas shows, enjoyed a little retail therapy and ate some good food.
 We stayed at one of our most favorite places, The Keeter Center.  They have the most awesome "turn down" service and we always came in to these delicious cookies and cold milk each evening. Talk about spoiled! 
 We saw the Texas Tenors and they are AWESOME!!!  You may have been watching America's Got Talent the year that they won "their claim to fame."  Their harmony is unbeatable and they definitely put on quite the show.  And, hey, they are very easy on the eyes as well. ~wink~

And, we saw the Lennon Sisters and the Osmond Brothers one evening and talk about bringing back memories.  Have mercy!  My Daddy use to take me to my Grandparents house to watch the Lawrence Welk show every Saturday evening until we finally got a TV.  I always wanted to be a Lennon Sister when I grew up.~chuckle~  They still have a great sound as well.  It was a fun getaway!
Once back home it was "all hands on deck!"  I have a very busy week ahead as I prepare for Thanksgiving week with company.  I have my menus lined out, the grocery list made and hopefully it will all come together without a whole lot of fuss.  We are so looking forward to sharing the time with family and only wish that all of our family could be here.  ~one of the drawbacks to everyone living all over the US~

Our little Sweetheart was 9 months old this past Wednesday. She is such a delight!  Isn't she rockin' that outfit and head accessory! ~too cute~ 

Bridget sent this Saturday evening as Coleman was literally "sleeping like a baby."  I can hardly believe those chubby, rosie cheeks and this CiCi can hardly wait to squeeze him this next weekend.  ~our little miracle boy~

I leave you with this..........
