Buddy and I went by the cemetery to check on Granny's grave on the way back home Thanksgiving. I had a complete melt down, because she had nothing on there. Well of course we couldn't have that! After I collected myself, we went and got her some Christmas flowers. Granny's favorite, red and cream poinsettias, berries, and red bird ribbon. I took them home and made her arrangement. We went back this morning and fixed it. It looked so pretty. I know she would love it, AND the first in her area to have Christmas flowers. It makes me feel better any way. She always went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of, so I am going to do a better job on the flowers for her. She's still my ANGEL!
Buddy and I went to Paw Paw's for Thanksgiving this year. Meagan and Madelyn decided they wanted to go to GA to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. We were so tired from the basement clean out, and the house being so destroyed, we didn't feel like traveling. Plus, we would have to pack up the dogs and their stuff...like having 4 more children, lol. So, we met Dad at the state line on Tues., and dropped them off. We really missed them, but we did enjoy getting to spend time with Paw Paw, Tookie, Linda, and Debbie. It was a nice change of routine. Thanks for having us! We really enjoyed it!!!

Yesterday was Buddy's birthday. It was pretty uneventful (thank goodness). The girls made him lots of cards, and put a candy bucket together. They put so much thought into it. They love and adore him so much. And of course I am so lucky to have him! We went and ate @ Outback last night. It was really yummy. M & M were pure entertainment. We had such a good time. We walked through Costco, and finished wth night with the only thing better than bday cake.....hot KRISPY KREME!!! So delicious!!!

Well, I have been a bad blogger lately. We have been going non stop for the last week or so. Last week we had Fall Festival at school. The girls had a lot of fun. The student council made a jail, and you could pay a $1 to have someone arrested. Meagan worked the first shift, and of course she had Maddie arrested. It was so cute. You had to stay for 5 minutes, or pay $1 bond to leave early. They had a blast. My camera decided to play stow-away in Buddy's Jeep-and um, that was in SC, so we were picture-less last week. This week is a world wind. Buddy is on vacation to clean out the basement. We started on Saturday, and we both can't hardly move. We have a lot of CRAP! We are planning on a yard sale this weekend. Hopefully someone can use a lot of things that brought joy to us (not the crap..lol). We also got new neighbors!!! They are so nice, and we are so relieved that most of our drama will end on this street. Tomorrow, Meagan will be on the Kip Tyner show. They are doing a short special on the money the student council raised for United Way for Lake View Elementary. She is so beyond excited. She got a new outfit out of it, so she is very pleased. Wish us luck finishing cleaning the basement. We will post pics when it's done (will that ever happen?) Have a great week!
