Thanksgiving at Mam's and Pompy's

Thanksgiving 2009. Dinner was great! Food... amazing! Mom & Dad made such a delicious turkey! Lots of sides... thank you everyone! I am so grateful for my family... my wonderful parents, and siblings, my in-laws and my kids and hubby!

I am Thankful

.... that sometimes I get to glimpse this sweet, love that these two have for one another. Usually they are screaming at one another, however, once in a while I am allowed to see the love... and it makes me happy!

What will he do with his free time?

He has one more game as a Freshman Football player for Franklin High. He said to me the other day, "Mom... I only have 3 more seasons of football!" And then for good measure, he repeated himself... to make sure the weight of what he said was heard. I acknowledged what he said, and then told him he could maybe play in college... like his Uncle Marc. He reminded me that he was only 5'8''. I reminded him that he was only 14... and just a year ago was a good 4 inches shorter than he is now. With only one more game looming next Thursday he said... "What will I do with my free time? I don't like the sound of that!" I am so proud of him. He has had a GREAT season... he played 1st string Offensive Tackle and 1st string Defensive End... he even played Nose guard for a couple games... and did an awesome job! He had quite a few amazing tackles and sacks! I still am amazed that this 14 year old boy is my son!

Just a little bit of scary...

We had a fun Halloween. We carved pumpkins earlier in the day... and went to my Mom and Dad's for trick-or-treating and soup and bread. Megan had so much fun handing out candy.... I think more than she had collecting candy. She didn't want to give the candy to anyone who was scary. She would ask her Mams to give the candy away. Then she would tell me, "he was just a little bit of scary"
