Brice and his gear
Rindy & Me

Brice, Tara, Dan & Lindsey as Pochantas

Jacob & Hannah

Lindsey & Dan

Last Saturday we had a full day. I went and picked up Tiff at the airport and we went to an Adoption Seminar in Brentwood we met some nice people and got some great information. That night we went to Rindy's to celebrate her and Brice's Birthdays. We had such a great time visiting with family. We had such a good meal with chili and hot dogs. Brice wanted a ice cream cake and it has been years since a had that it was delicious. Tiff got Mrs. Melna to make Alabama Football cookies for Brice. I wanted to put up a picture, but can't figure out how to put more than five pictures on a post. I know it can be done I just need to look into it more. We got Brice all decked out in Steelers gear. I promise Tiff was there but didn't want her picture taken. It was so nice to be together with Family. Happy Birthday Rindy & Brice!


I wanted to make this post yesterday, but I didn't realize my camera needed charging. I can't believe as I type that this little guy is 16 years old today, it just doesn't seem possible. Was he not the cutest thing you have ever seen. It was very hard just to pick out a few pictures of him over the years. We all grew up together and are many pictures of us. We are a picture taking family. I am so proud to call Brice my nephew, but also my friend. He is the most funny, caring and has such a strong sense of character and conviction for others. He has always been so wise beyond his years. I am so proud of the young man he has become. It has been an absolute joy watching him grow up. So many of my greatest memories are with Tiff, Lindsey and Hannah & Brice at Daddy's. We always had so much fun and we grew up together. Happy Birthday Brice! I can't wait to see what is in store for you next!

I got our family pictures back this week and am very happy with how they turned out. Tracie got some really good pics of the girls. I really like the black and white one of all of us. I also got a recent picture of me and the girls and one to use for christmas cards. I still can't believe how good Cup and Muf did for pictures. Tiff and I went today and started up a T-Shirt order I can't wait to start selling them.

Today was my friends Kristin and Cory's little girl Kylie's 2nd Birthday party. She is such a sweetie and had a Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday themed party. Kristin and Cory are both such good parents and very crafty too. Kristin made the characters out of pumpkins and squash. She and Cory both did the cake and I think they did an amazing job and it was very delicious. She loved the little daisy girl we got for her. Tiff picked that out and she seemed to like that her hair twirled. Happy Birthday Kylie! We love you bunches!

We set out on a little Road Trip today we went to Knoxville and had a wonderful and the nicest lady we found in the blog world take some family pictures for us. It was so nice to meet her and see some pictures of her children they are adorable. She too has adopted and it was such a blessing to meet her. She did an amazing job. Cup and Muf did great in the car and for pictures. I was so proud of them. We let them down for some pictures and no one ran off. I guess they really are big girls now. It was so nice to meet Tracie finally, Tiff and I feel like we know her already from following her blog. I think we got some great pictures I am so excited. We stopped at Panera Bread real quick and ate supper and sat right by the window to keep an eye on the girls and you would not believe how many people stopped at the car. Tiff thought that was crazy... I wondered were they barking there heads off. They slept almost the whole way home they had a really full day on there first Road Trip. I feel so blessed with such a nice day meeting a new friend, we got family pictures accomplished and the rain held off. Thank You Lord! I am thinking there will be more Road Trips in the future since they did so good in the car. I am thinking Hello Beach... Hello Destin here we come! I hope everyone had as nice a day as we had!
(Rindy did you notice the Pooh Throw...Ha Ha!)


Are these not the sweetest pictures of the girls. Muf was very tuckered out this morning and needed her beauty sleep before we headed out to Knoxville on our little Road Trip. Cup is always running 90 miles an hour does she not look so peaceful sleeping. That is her favorite toy her buddy Pinky the Octopus.

I have been spending lots of time on the computer looking at and researching Adoption web sites and blogs. I have gotten Tiff hooked on them to and when I came in the living room last night look what I saw. My Muf she to is hooked and is in love with Adoption looks like the whole family is getting on board. Cup wanted Muf to come play, but she was too busy sitting with Tiff on the computer.

My family always gets together Sunday nights for Sunday Supper, but this one was extra special and we had so much to celebrate. We all got to celebrate Daddy's birthday of course and we also had our Steelers playing so we had a football themed birthday party. Tiff went and picked up Granny and got Mrs. Melna to make her amazing cookies again. She made footballs and football helmets that were the Steelers they were absolutely adorable. Rindy got Mrs. Betty to make Daddy his favorite cake Coconut it was delicious. Everyone brought snacks and appetizers for supper something different but it was fun to get together and watch the game and be with family. Another great thing is we got to go to Brice's game Friday night and he did very well. Lindsey also came home and she brought her friend Dan. He is very polite and so nice. We really enjoyed talking and getting to know him. He is coming back next weekend. Looks like we didn't scare him off! What a doll! We also got to spend some quality time with Granny she too is a doll! I love to chat with her and catch up. There is nothing better than family I feel so blessed!
