Signs of Fall





There are a few signs around the house that fall is here! I LOVE FALL! Warm breezes, spiced apple cider, Apple Festival, fall colors, jeans and sweatshirts, caramel apples, mums, Halloween...

Light the Night Pics



What a beautiful night for a walk! The turnout looked great! Thank you to all who supported me with donations or by walking! The picture is a group shot of my coworkers and their families that walked on our team. The other shot is what it looked like walking up main street. I wore my Team in Training T-shirt and had previous TNT members come up to me asking me what events I had completed. I appreciate all the Leukemia and Lymphoma fund raising efforts! Not many cancers have such organized groups raising money for their causes.

What golf does to a person...

Today was a fun day. Chris and I played in his Uncle Terry's Memorial Golf Outing for the Lakeland Athletic Boosters. It was a bit chilly this a.m., but a good time! I golfed with my mother-in-law Sandy, her friend Jody, and Terry's wife, Michelle. It had been since mid-summer that I had golfed and it took me a little bit to get back into it. I have found since I started playing golf, that it is something that it can turn you into a different person. I actually found myself nearly driving my club into the ground when things did not go my way. That folks, is what golf can do to you!

No Phone Service...

If you need to call Chris or I, please use our cell phones. Our phone has been out since last night and isn't likely to get fixed until the 15th!!! Sigh. Apparently something happened near the wonderful road construction near our house and something big was cut. We are also unable to access our sbcglobal.net email account. I can deal with the phone...but email???

Remembering September 11th

Just wanted to take a moment today to remember all of those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001 and also all the people who's lives were touched by that event. God Bless.

Kayla's First Day of School


Kayla started at her new preschool today! She woke me up already dressed in sweatpants from last school year wanting to know where the shirt was that matched them (she long ago outgrew it - as well as the sweatpants!). She was very happy to finally be starting school. She had a fun day at school and was chattering nonstop about school on the way home. I really cherish these days because next year she will be in Kindergarten all day, everyday (sniff, sniff).
Late this afternoon the poor bug came to me and told me that her ear was hurting her. She slept though dance class and was devastated that I didn't wake her up for class, but instead took her to the after hours clinic to get her ears checked. Hopefully she will be feeling better for the next day of school on Friday.

Fish Fry












videoThis is the first time I'm uploading video...so I hope it works! We spent today recuperating from entertaining 80 friends and family at our annual fish fry. Each year we find ways to become more efficient with the food preparation. I took a picture of all the fish - Chris always thinks we don't have enough! He does so much work throughout the year catching and cleaning all of them. Chad Ihrie and Jon DeWitt helped him this year. We had a lot of help this year from the Denton's, Ihrie's and DeWitt's getting ready for the big day. Thank you so much!



The weather and company were absolutely perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better day, except for one thing.... MOSQUITOS! We haven't had any at our house the entire summer due to lack of rain. I swear some of them were so big they were mutants! Nonetheless, we had a great time. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends to share in fun times!
