Tony, Liam, and TJ left early on the 1st to tow TJ’s truck back to Alabama. Hated to see them go, but knew they had to. Hope it won’t be too long before we see TJ again. Continue Reading →
Today we woke up and ate breakfast at Hardees. We’ve missed that southern fast food chain. Tony was sweet and drove two exits down the highway to get me some Starbucks (thank goodness), and then we headed over to see Amanda and the gang. We watched movies, walked around a little, and just spent a quiet day enjoying being together. Continue Reading →
We got up early and met the kids at Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Then we just chilled at Amanda’s house before catching the movie Ant Man. It was really good! After a run to the local Walmart, I made some 7 layer dip, cowboy caviar, and later made dinner. It was a great, quiet day with family.
Tony and I got the word from Amanda that she would be induced soon, so we jumped on an airplane and headed to West Virginia. We flew into Pittsburgh, and rented a car for the drive south. It was beautiful country, beautiful weather, and we were excited about seeing Amanda, Jason, and TJ (who had driven to WV with his Uncle Paul). Continue Reading →
TJ missed spending Christmas with us last year, so after the wedding, he came over and we watched him open his Christmas presents! He’s lost a lot of weight since Christmas, so we all got a good laugh that some of the T-shirts might be a bit large for him now!
Most of you know that we do not have a good relationship with Amanda’s mom. Well, she passed away on Oct. 28th. I would like to thank MY mom for the plane ticket money so that Amanda and Jason could get down to Alabama for the funeral. And we’d like to thank everyone who prayed for Amanda and TJ during this troubling time. We love our kids and our hearts hurt for them, and your prayers and kind words really have made a difference. Thank you.
After Amanda and I got done setting the venue for her wedding, Tony and I jumped in our rental car and headed for Alabama. Tony’s 25th High School reunion was this weekend and we were headed to Anniston to see other members of the class of 1986. It was a beautiful day for driving for the most part…blue skies, green trees, white puffy clouds. Until we got into Mississippi and hit a little rain…then we got beautiful rainbows.

November has been full of all kinds of doin’s! Where to start…
We sold our old van to Tony’s brother, Russell. Since Amanda bought the Honda from us, that leaves me driving the Mercedes…darn it! Ha ha! And with the van gone…I can finally park in the driveway! It’s so nice! Here’s our goodbye picture of the van…with it’s new owner. Continue Reading →
