Wow - didn't think I would ever shave my 20 year old boys legs

We had a gathering for the Alabama/Auburn game last night. Most of us were Alabama fans (exception Emilie and Cayla), so we were not too excited about the outcome. The game was boring - very little action. The action came after the game at our house. Byne placed a bet with his friend Brandon that if Auburn lost Brandon would have to shave his legs. If Alabama lost Byne would have to shave his legs. Alabama lost and Byne is a man of his word. We all gathered on the back porth for the shaving. It made for an interesting evening. Our team may not of won, but we had lots of fun and ate some great food. This has been a great week. We enjoyed having Byne home and spending time with family. I also got most of my Christmas shopping finished. I just have a few items left to buy. Dalton and Lakyn come home from their Dad's house today. I have missed them and will be very glad when they get home. This week I have been constantly reminded of what all I have to be thankful for. God has been good to the Goodins!

Saunders Thanksgiving

Dalton loves Byne

We went to Mom's house for Thanksgiving this evening. We FINALLY had the whole family in one place at one time so I forced them to take a family picture. It was difficult to get Dalton to cooperate (as usual), but it still turned out pretty good. The food was great - mom is a great cook. We are going to visit my grandad tomorrow and then off to Birmingham for some serious shopping with Aunt Cathy. Happy Thanksgiving!

We had Thanksgiving with the Goodins at our house on Sunday. We had a great crowd. The whole family was here except Dalton, he went to visit Hannah, and Krissy, she had to fly out of state to visit her family. We missed them! Jerry and Mark cooked the steaks and they were fantastic. We always eat good when we get together. I am so thankful to be a part of this fantastic family. I am thankful that we are able to spend time together and everyone is healthy. We will have the Saunders Thanksgiving on Wednesday. Aunt Cathy, Uncle Tom, and Hannah are coming. I am looking forward to spending time with them. I love Thanksgiving - it always reminds me to reflect on all that I have to be thankful for!

Emilie's Birthday

We had a party at the house this weekend for Emilie's birthday. She is 28 years old - still a baby. Jan made a cake - check it out in the pics-very impressive. We had a great time! We also went to watch Byne play ball this weekend. They play a "Word Series" game every year where the Troy team is divided into two teams and they play one another. Byne's team won and they were very excited. He played first on Friday evening and pitched on Saturday to one batter. They put him in the game in the top of the 9th inning. He pitched to one batter and got him out. We are out on Monday for Veteran's Day. I am so excited - I need the rest after traveling back and forth to Troy every weekend for the past month watching Byne. I love to watch him play, but that drive to Troy Friday and then again on Sat. and then again on Sun. can get exhausting. I am looking forward to a day of laying around my house! We were so proud that Byne came home on Sunday - he was able to stay for Ms. Emilie's birthday party. It was a great time had by all!
