Weekend Update -- Belated

I am so behind on blogging it is not even funny!!! I will try to catch up on reading and commenting on your blogs tonight after church. I have had a few other priorities to keep me busy. Bryan and I (mostly Bryan) have been sick. Bryan came home early on Monday and stayed home yesterday. He had a severe migraine and "digestive" issues. He is better today and went on to work. On Monday we both went to bed around 8:45 p.m. and didn't get up until 8:00 the next morning!!

I'll try to be quick in catching my blog up to date. I had a nice Friday night. I drove out to Tuttle to attend a benefit Indian Taco Salad dinner for a church member who has Carcinoid Tumors since 2005. The community was raising money for he and his wife to travel to Switzerland for some intense radiation I believe. Please pray for Jimmy Waggoner. He needs healing and relief from his pain. They leave around Thanksgiving for Switzerland.

Bryan stayed home to prepare his Sunday School lesson but I had a nice date anyway. My nephew Will met me and ate with me.
There was also a silent auction and I won the basket of coasters and notepad Will is holding. Afterwards, we walked across the street to the high school football game and met up with my sister, Jennifer.It was a perfect night for football. Just a little cold, but not freezing!! Great hoody weather. Jennifer is very involved with the Band Boosters and at 3rd quarter they always feed the band snacks or a small meal. I helped her while I was there and I loved loved watching and listening to those high schoolers. It made me feel old!!I think the uniforms are pretty nice! Don't you!!

I did get to watch Katie and Jesse for a little bit on Saturday while Eric and Whitney ran some errands and then I fed the whole family, except Jesse :) , dinner. Saturday was just a great day. Katie and I bought two small pumpkins earlier in the day for her to "decorate" later when she came over. I am not creative at all. She wanted to carve them but I persuaded her to use a black sharpie. I just didn't think I could help her carve a pumpkin and watch an infant at the same time. Too overwhelming! And Bryan was working on our fence and keeping our dog from running away which is a whole different blog. Please don't hold the poor creativity against me. At least I worked to make a memory!! These pictures didn't turn out to well due to all the shadows but you can see the pumpkins and a little fall decor at my house. The big pumpkin is suppose to represent Bryan and I!! HA HA

Jesse was just wonderful to take care of. I rocked him and we played with him. It was great! Look at this smile!!!!!
You can't tell in this next picture, but one time when I walked through the living room, Jesse was awake in his carrier and I'm so serious, he was watching the football game. I know he was!!!!

His dad was great in every sport so I just know Jesse will be!!!

Whitney drove Eric back to Ft Hood Texas Sunday night and his flight to Kuwait leaves sometime this week. Thank you for your prayers, comments, and thoughts for this family.

I hate that you guys have been sick. Seeing those band members brought back so many memories from high school! I miss the fotball games. We always had so much fun! Oh, and I think your pumpkins turned out beautiful!
