Bunco Bash

Emily got a team together for the Bunco Bash benefiting the Renzi Arts center.  We had a great time even though we didn't win a thing!  You had to roll buncos (three 6s) and we all got at least 1 bunco! You get the boa if you get a bunco!  I ended up with 3 and went to the roll-off with the others.  Highest roll wins...I rolled a 1!  ha!  I was out so we walked around and watched the finals. The top winner won 2 round trip airfare tickets!


Amy, Jenny, Megan, Michelle, me, and Emily

I did win a 2 night stay with dinner at the Vintage for 2 from the silent auction! sweet!

Take My Picture

My girl LOVES to have her picture taken. It seems I've trained her well! Love her to the moon and back!


She loved when she saw this catalog come out of the mailbox!  She looked at it for about 3 minutes...the longest she's ever spent on something.

Representing the Saints in  hand-me-down from the Bevilles

"Take My Picture" is her favorite line

She didn't request this picture, but I cannot believe they got her to sleep on a nap-mat!

Tackle Football

Me No Likey.

I am all about letting my kids try new things and sports and stuff, but tackle football is not my favorite.  Bennett wanted to play so we are doing it, but I think this will be our last year.  Neil said that one of his friends researched football and he couldn't fund one other city that started tackle this young.  Not sure why!  Bennett is concerned about getting hit too hard and that scares me.  He doesn't care about getting dirty and sweaty at all!  

All that to say: we are so proud of our boy!  He is trying and learning new things.  And he gets to play with sweet friends!  

Family love

Henry wanted in on the big boy pic

Pops is 67!

Pops is 67!  Wow!  Almost 70!  Happy birthday, Dad/Pops!

Carolyn had a fabulous meal planned with steaks, au gratin potatoes, salad, and cake for Dad's birthday.  Neil was the grill-master and did a superb job!  Carolyn said that Dad requested a carrot cake, but she thought no one would want vegetable cake so she got chocolate, too.  She's too sweet!  There was also delicious peanut butter pie.  Yum-O!


Everyone helped blow out the candles

Even sister and Bennett

Pops and his 3 favorite little people.

I think Dean is behind Reid's head!  How cute!

LaTech vs South Carolina State

We had so much fun going to the Tech game...I mean Ruston!  We got out to the tailgating area and walked around and saw some folks.  When it was time to go in they turned us away and made everyone head into the TAC.  Due to lightning, the 6pm game didn't begin until 10:15 pm!  Nuts!  We decided to just grab dinner after waiting for 2 hours.  Turned out to be tons of fun!

We saw the Raines crew there, too!  I didn't think they were coming so it was a nice treat for the boys!
This bulldog princess stayed home with Gammy and cheered from Shreveport.  

The boys were most impressed with the Blizzard and ice cream cone walking around.



One cool thing about being shoved in the TAC was the kids got to run around the basketball court for 30 minutes.  Talk about fun!  There were about 100 kids running back and forth.  They found a volleyball and played "basketball." When a kid would make a basket the whole arena would erupt with cheers!  so fun!

The big boys did not want a picture for some reason!

Sarah Kathryn goes to Mother's Day Out!

FINALLY!  My sweet girl got to start school.  Talk about fun!  She was so excited to finally have her turn, but when it came time for me to leave it was a total melt-down.  Her.  Not me.  I basically skipped out of the church like I was headed for a week long vacation.  The 5 hours I will have on Tuesdays and Thursdays are golden!  

Sarah Kathryn enjoyed her time, too.  She has been dying to use her new nap-mat, but didn't nap the first day.  She did the 2nd so we are making progress!  
Gosh, she is the cutest darn thing!

Photo-shoot!


Not sure who Kathryn is....I couldn't find our spot at first since the name is wrong on the sheet!

Henry goes to Bridging!

One of our best decisions was to hold Henry back for another year of pre-school.  After only a week of Bridging I can already tell this has been the best thing for him!  We are so proud of our Henry and how much he has already learned.  (Yes, I am 2 weeks late on this post!)



Henry still wants to be a fireman!
He is so proud to be a rainbow friend!
Mrs. R is Henry's teacher this year!  Yay!
Henry is happy to NOT be the youngest kid in his class.  He is thrilled to be in the "BIG" boy class this year.  His class is the oldest at the school.
