The Latest

October has been jam packed with lots of fun and we finally have some fall weather to enjoy.  I'm excited to share some of my fun with you.

I am in a Pokeno group and we play the first Thursday evening of every month.  I hosted it this month and even though it was still rather warm here at that time, I just pretended that fall had arrived  and the temps were cool.  I served a chili dish and used fall decor.  Don't you just love my cute goblets with the fall leaves?  I found those at the Dollar Tree a few days before and had to have them.  I mean for $1.00 each, why not? ~chuckle~

I attended a function at this gorgeous home a couple of weeks ago.  Isn't that front entry something else!  The lady hosting this function has such a flair with decorations.

Our sweet Case was 2 months old yesterday.  His Momma found him some cute caps to wear during his first Oklahoma winter.  We went to see this little guy and his family a couple of weeks ago.  We had such a good time but the weather was sooo cold and it was sooo WINDY!  We left 90+ degrees for 30's and 40's degrees.  Burrrrrrr!

Bridget and I went to the outlet mall for a while one day and Poppa and Case hung out in the food court area.  We would check in periodically and they were both doing well, so it all worked out and was a fun outing for us.  Poppa had to have a refresher course in giving a baby a bottle. ~grin~

Clancy celebrated his 11th birthday on Oct. 2nd and he got a guitar.  I know, the guitar looks bigger than he does.  But, the salesman assured them that this was the size he needed.  He has started guitar lessons and is eager to learn. He told his Momma and Daddy that he wanted to play in a praise and worship band one day.  And, I have little doubt that if he sets his mind to it, he will do it. 

Coleman is going to be a dragon for Halloween.  He could hardly wait for the costume to arrive and once it did, he did not want to take it off.  He puts it on everyday.  

On our way to Oklahoma we stopped to see my only two paternal cousins.  We had not seen each other in 20+ years.  We had such a good time recalling childhood memories and catching up with each other.  We all agreed that we would not allow so much time to pass between our next visit. 

The Grandgirls had their pictures taken in the cotton fields a few weeks ago.  Cotton field pictures are popular here and always make for such a great background.  And, I love the one of the girls not in the cotton field as well, especially the way the sun is setting between the trees.  

Andi Kate had to decorate a pumpkin this past weekend as one of her favorite book characters.  She chose Fancy Nancy.  My DIL invited me over to share in the fun and I thought Fancy Nancy turned out as cute as can be.  I don't know how we survived our kids school projects without Pinterest.  It is such a helpful resource. We had such a fun time being creative.

Tommy and I have never had professional pictures taken.  We've had pictures taken for church directories but they are generally not anything to get excited about.  I decided it was time for us to have some taken.  We did them about an hour before sunset and had such a good time.  I imagine the gal took close to 200 pics.  We had a zillion poses of us together and by ourselves and different outfits.  I was so pleased and these are 3 of my favorites. 

Have a wonderful new week!

  16. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
