Wow! Has it really been over a year since I posted? I'm so ashamed. I promised granddaughter Kate that I would start posting again, so here goes.

What a fabulous weekend! I helped host my 45th class reunion and we had a blast. Here is a picture of most of the classmates who attended. We are at Cooper's BBQ, right across the street from Billy Bob's. I'm on the front row, seated, far right. Can you tell that our colors were red and white?

Winter Wonderland of 2010 . . . .

We were expecting some rain, and possibly some snow, but what a nice surprise this was! We received a 12" record-breaking snowfall. Needless to say, we've stayed indoors mostly, but today we took a walk. Here are pictures of our home and street. .

Evelyn's First Birthday Surprise . . . .

It appeared to be a normal first birthday celebration with grandparents and small children galore. But something big was about to happen. After digging into her birthday cake, Evelyn had to go change clothes. When she came back out, with her mommy holding her arms just right, we could see she was delivering a message: "Big Sister in Training . . . Evelyn"

That's right, Evelyn is going to be a big sister. And we, who are much too young to be grandparents at all (hee hee) are expecting grandchild #7. Praise the Lord.

Do you think she realizes that her world is about to be turned upside down?

Trick-or-Treaters . . . .

A kitty cat and a mermaid came to trick-or-treat at our house. Aren't they cute?

Goodbye to summer . . . . .

Goodbye t
o summer. I remember dreading the end of swimming season and yet being eager to learn which teacher I had and whether my best friend, Dianna, and I would be in the same room. Dianna (on the left) and I went to Fannin Elementary from 1st through 6th grades. Here are my 2nd and 5th grade pictures - the grades our granddaughters will start this week.

School sta
rts this week for three of our grandchildren, too, and they've been assembling their supplies. Smelling a box of Crayola Crayons transports me right back to Mrs. Stockton's third grade. School supplies consisted of a Big Chief tablet, a package of colored construction paper, some glue, scissors, two #2 pencils and a box of 24 crayons - oh, and a cigar box - a real cigar box.

Visiting in Tampa . . .

Escaping the Texas heat, right into the Florida sun . . . well, at least it's been cloudy during my visit to see my little Tex-Floridians. We spent some quality home time. Here, Kate and Emma are watching one of the Princess Diary movies. Kate is recuperating from surgery so appreciates the diversions. I'm headed home tomorrow.

Our birthdays are only one day apart . . . . . .

Woo hoo! Look at all these birthday cards! Having back-to-back birthdays is terrific. These cards make up getting a year older. We celebrated with Marci and part of her family and with my twin brother, Mark. We don't get to do that very often, so really enjoyed it. What did we do? . . . . . We went out for Mexican food, of course!
