Breaking Records on The Scale of "Busy"

Aly with Sunflower the Clown
Things are not letting up around our house, on the “busy scale”, that’s for certain! Reunion Sunday at Southside was this past Sunday and we had a fantastic day! Incredible crowds, delicious meal, fun activities, etc. You’ll be able to see the details at next week! A very special thank you to each and every person who helped! The kids are not likely to forget such a fun day!

Aly on a beautiful Fall day

“When bone tired & weary...we often underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring and all of these have the potential to turn a life around. SO! WAKE UP...if only long enough to help turn someone else's life around and see for yourself what it will do for you, in return!!!” (unknown)
We have seen many scary things in the news lately… this week, was possibly the most scary of all (IF true…)! Judge Andrew Napolitano comments on the completely unconstitutional bill in Massachusetts that will allow the governor to declare an emergency and "allow" police to force their way into your homes to vaccinate YOU and YOUR FAMILY.

Our "School Girl" 9/25/09
Tomorrow, will again be another busy day, in addition to school, paperwork, etc., there will be laundry and packing to do. Because Friday afternoon, is SUPPOSED to find us Highway-bound for Missouri, the good Lord willing. This will also be a busy time of reuniting with family, dual birthday celebrations for the kids while there, and so much more. In addition to everything else mentioned, Revival begins at our home church, on Sunday. What do you say……… Is it time to double up 'on the brew' or what? Do you take cream and sugar???

It's Official! Fall is Here...

"Pumpkins, pumpkins in a patch, as far as I can see. Pumpkins, pumpkins in a patch, look, that one's bigger than me! I need a pumpkin nice and round so, I can carve a face and when I've found the perfect one, I'll bring it back to my place! I'll make a nice big pumpkin smile, that'll light the night with cheer... My small little pumpkin, from the patch, this colorful time of year!" (Unknown)
As hard as it is for us to believe, Fall officially 'hit' yesterday evening, at 5:18PM! Now, if we could just get the temps to stay this nice throughout Fall and Winter (except for Christmas week, of course!)...

Alyson Dawn with Mrs. Jodie, September 22, 2009
We continue to be very very busy with plans for our church Reunion Sunday and working on the Christmas Musical, of course! Aly began music classes, at University of Indianapolis, this week. She loved her time with Mrs. Jodie and enjoyed meeting new friends along the way, as well!
Aly and I, have both been down with a bit of what could be called, "the Yankeefied Droops", so neither of us have been feeling quite ourselves this week! We are praying that Greg doesn't end up with them, too! The Princess and I, are determined to get over these 'bugs' and get on with the excitement of a fun Autumn ahead! After all, she has a birthday coming up pretty soon!!!
Happy Fall, ya' you are all enjoying a colorful one, thus far!

September is Nearing an End... Already?

Greg, Aly and I: Taken at Cousin Corey's Birthday Party (9/4/09)...
Since our last post, the nation has come through the 8th so-called Anniversary of 9/11! It doesn't seem possible that it has been so long, we only hope and pray that God will once again, bless America and keep 'her' safe from other such dangers, in the future!
Well, our household has been exceptionally busy lately! I suddenly realized this morning, that I had not blogged since our trip to Nashville and that has been ALMOST two weeks ago, now!
We are going ahead, full force, with work on the Christmas Musical at Church and we continue to be busy planning children's all-day activities for the Southside Reunion on the 27th, of this month!
Aly, is also recovering from a sinus infection (and a 2yr. molar-fever), that she 'picked up' a few days after our return home. So, needless to say there hasn't been much time to come up for air around here, so to speak!
The best news of ALL, is the fact that Mamaw S. is HOME!!! Still not quite back to 'everyday-normal', but well on the way and we PRAISE GOD for all He's done and is doing in Mamaw's life!
Trust you'll all have an exceptional week and enjoy the rest of this "Sunny September"......

A "Southern" (Belated) Anniversary Vacation

Greg and I have just returned from our belated Anniversary trip… to Nashville, Tennessee! We truly enjoyed our brief 4-day/3-night stay there, our only wish would have been to be able to stay a little longer! It was quite simply a wonderful vacation!!! Our precious Aly-girl was reason enough to head back to Indy on day #4, though! LOL

Greg, thanks for the wonderful get-away trip… it's always fun to celebrate with you! I'll love you forever… with all of my heart!”
