Fifth Day of Christmas 2011

The kids have all gone home.  I actually prefer the sound of family to the quiet they leave behind.

We have cooked, played, rested, and eaten our way through the first four days of Christmas.  Now to get ready for 2012. 

I finished the aprons made from a man's dress shirt.  I think they turned out pretty cute.

On Blueberry Hill

Memorial Day 2009 and the blueberries are ripe for the pickin'! Who needs hot dogs after a trip to the blueberry patch?

Splish! Splash!

Swimming at Graham's without Bubba -
Sanders was diving off the board with a little help from Aunt Meaghan, Wynn tried the slide, and Rebekah refused to get in the pool!

Wynn is finally four. Time is certainly flying for you. A Tom and Jerry cake is exactly what you ordered!

I bet this will never happen again! Two boys raking leaves just for the fun of it. Rebekah slept through most of the work. She joined in just in time to jump in the fun.

Gourds at Gran's with Bubba

A Trip to Gran's With Bubba

I should explain. Graham and Gran sound alike, and are confusing to little folks. So, in our wisdom, we have cousin Graham referred to as "Graham without Bubba", and great-grandmother Gran Fondren known around here as "Gran with Bubba". Bubba just happens to be Gran's pug. We spent an afternoon with Gran singing Sander's newly composed "A Band of Cowboys", gathering gourds and romping in the yard

Little Band Boys

Little Uniforms for
Little Boys

Grandma, "we need band uniforms!"
Sanders phoned, "Grandma, get your pencil, head 21, neck 12, arm 18, . . ."
Nathan, in the background, "Deborah, did you measure Sanders?"
Deborah - "No, I guess he did."
Nathan - "I wouldn't put too much stock in those measurments."

It took several weeks but Abbi and I finished the band uniforms just in time for the MSU-Kentucky game. Now, I owe Rebekah a guard uniform!
