Saturday at the Beach

Another great day, hanging out, visiting, being lazy, and celebrating Boo!  It was a beautiful sunny day, but coooooooold out on the beach.  I think most people ended up getting out there for at least a little while, but as you can see, it was pretty empty when Jeff & I went out for our […]

Boopalooza – Friday Night

This past weekend we headed to Ocean Lakes at Myrtle Beach, to spend a couple of days celebrating Boo’s 50th birthday.  There were 24 of us there altogether – his siblings and their  spouses, his daughters and one of their friends, one nephew (Cooper), and several of his lifelong friends.  What a fun, fun time it […]

Panther Display

I’m running a little late downloading pictures for the last couple of weeks.  This is one I took weekend before last, when we were getting ready to watch our Carolina Panthers play in the Wild Card Playoff Game against the Arizona Cardinals.  Apparently all our good luck charms worked – and apparently I should have […]

Friday Pictures

Friday morning when the four grand ones who spent the night woke up they headed outside almost immediately.  These are some outside playing kids!  I got a few chores done, and then called them in to make Snowflake Tortillas, as their cousins had done earlier in the week, for breakfast.  They were just as big […]

Visiting at Gran’s

New Year’s Day Sherri came up for a quick visit with Gran – just an overnight.  I love, love, love that she is close enough that coming just for an overnight is so doable!  I went over to see her that afternoon, and Andrew came & brought the boys, and Addie & Lee brought June […]

Tortilla Snowflakes

What a fun day we had yesterday when Mallory & Clara were here to stay all day, since school is still out for the Christmas break.  They were here Tuesday, and spent that night, so yesterday morning everyone could just sort of sleep in.  We had a pretty lazy day – watched some TV, they […]

Saturday Pictures

Saturday morning we had our family Christmas here at our house – brunch, presents, lots of laughing.  I made June and Clara hats from “Frozen” – Lindee braided the hair for me.  Here is Clara modeling the Anna hat.  Those were their costumes for Halloween, and alas, I managed to give them the wrong hat […]

Friday after Christmas

The day after Christmas Charlie & Adam came back over to hang out.  Since they come so seldom now, it’s really special having them twice in one week.  We started off the day painting the magazine trees we’d made earlier.  Adam assured me he was an experienced spray painter, having spray painted rocks at the […]
