We have a Costume Parade every year that is lots of fun at Coosada. This year the office staff had the theme of Wizard of Oz. It was a great day and the children seemed to have lots of fun. I also got arrested for the Muscular Dystrophy Association today - I raised $1060.00! We had a Halloween party for Lakyn's friends tonight and they had a great time. Mark cooked Beef Stew for the whole crew - it was yummy. It was a fabulous Halloween. Check out the pics of Halloween and the Costume Parade on my flickr account.

Byne's games

Mark and I went to Troy twice this weekend to watch Byne play ball. He pitched on Friday evening and played first and was the designated hitter the rest of the weekend. He had a pretty good weekend - he hit two homeruns yesterday. We always have a great time when we go watch him play. I am looking forward to a BUSY week at school (Halloween week!) and another weekend of baseball next weekend.

Field Trip with Allie

My children are getting too old for field trips so I was so excited when Jan asked me to go on Allie's field trip with her. Jan and Chris both had to work and it was Allie's first field trip. It was easy for me to go, since I already work at the school. A perk of the job! We went to the pumpkin patch at the YMCA. Allie came to my house this morning EARLY, and the field trip is ALL she could talk about. She was so excited. I had forgotten how excited children get about field trips. You could tell she could not wait until it was time to load the bus. We had a great time together, and it was fun getting to know all my new kindergarten students. I was exhausted when I got home, but so glad that I was able to go. Thank you Jan and Chris for sharing sweet Allie with me today - we had a blast! Check out the pics in flickr.

Troy Homecoming 2007

We went to Troy for Homecoming. Byne grilled us a great lunch before the game - he gets his grilling skills from his Dad. We had a great time with Byne, Cayla, and Tiffany. We were really there to see the cheerleaders and they did a great job. They won the game by a large margin. Lakyn also enjoyed the Dippin Dots. It was a great day!

Lakyn's Lake Party

Lakyn invited several girls for a spend the night party at the lake. We had a great time! I invited a few of my friends too - can't leave mom out. We took over 300 pictures at the football games and the girls had a great time making their own tagbooks (smaller version of scrapbooks). We ate banana splits and watched movies. The girls ate and ate and ate - I am used to boys eating a lot, but some of these girls put Byne and Kyle to shame! It was a party we will not soon forget. Thanks for coming girls - we enjoyed you! :)

Party like its 1999!

We had a birthday celebration for Byne (20), Lakyn (13), and Uncle Stephen (38) this month! We had a great time! The whole family was here (Mark's and mine). My grandad came from Wing, AL and my Aunt Cathy's family came from Macon for the party.

Go Mustangs!

Lakyn loves cheering with her friends. Check out the great pictures of her at the games by clicking on the link at the top of the page. She only has three games left until she has to move onto Basketball season. She is not looking forward to that - she loves cheering for football.

Family Vacation

We just got back from Cape San Blas visiting Aunt Cathy's new beach house. The beach house was beautiful, the weather was great, and the company was fantastic. I was so grateful to be able to spend time with almost the whole family. We missed Byne, Micah, and Aarron! We had the greatest time - check out the great pictures on the link at the top of this page. We took pictures as a family on Saturday evening and they turned out great. Kyle and Dalton had a great time skim boarding and looking for wildlife. Lakyn and Hannah had a great time just hanging out together as usual. The four children played football in the ocean on Sunday - it ended in a tie when a valuable player was wounded (Lakyn!). I did not want to come home, but we have to work to pay for more wonderful vacations. Thank you Aunt Cathy and Uncle Tom for the wonderful weekend! We LOVE YOU!
