Mom and Dave came to visit on Friday! We went to our favorite restaurant on the river. (I think it's the proximity to the water that we are so fond of, not so much the food.) It was very yummy though--we enjoyed it!

Several trips to the airport dropping Blake and Tex, then Justin...then picking them both to go to the airport...I'm always wondering where people are going?? Most look happy and excited to be traveling. Some look as though they are dreading the trip. But, as I said--most look excited. I always see other people's luggage and think to myself, "Hey, I want that!" More often than not, the said luggage has a monogram on it. I'll have to check into that. I also always see tan people at the airport. I need a tan far worse than a piece of monogrammed luggage, that is for sure.
Sadly, UK lost this afternoon. Needless to say, my dear husband was not a happy camper. He refuses to believe that Tubby CAN NOT hear him screaming insults at him--so he continues to coach the Cats from our living room. I was glad we didn't have any frieds over to watch the game. I am quite certain that they would have been frightened by his craziness.

After a brief period of mourning for our team...we moved on to other cherished Sunday activities...some reading, napping, ironing, etc. As you can see, Tommy's most recent interest is building his own home. I would personally rather not....but we shall see.

Here are some more Sara Kate pics that I love.

Time for the Sopranos! Goodnight...

I was in all my glory today with another photo shoot! There are no words to describe how cute this little one is! And her momma is the sweetest....oh how I wish they lived close again!
Here are some of my favorites....there were 190 photographs in all!!

Thursday Randomness...

Here we have some peanut butter treats for the dogs. I use the term "treats" loosely...really they are just spoonfuls of peanut butter. I could only snap a picture of Abby. Pepper has requested not to be photographed while eating. They both enjoy some PB every now and again.

And then...this is quite possibly the best Thursday gift Tommy has ever given me.....he ordered HBO just in time for the new season of my absolute favorite show (I love it even more than 24, and that is a lot!) I love, love, love Uncle Junior, Chrissy, Meadow, and Big Tony, of course. The first episode of the season is on Sunday night. I can't wait. I think we'll have a little Sopranos Par-tay right here in our living room.

We have been watching several movies lately....thinking of getting Netflix....
Must Love Dogs...Not so good. Very mediocre, really.
In Her Shoes... Pretty good, but not really
It should be added here that both of the aforementioned unextraordinary movies did make me cry. Imagine that....
Lastly, North Country, grrrrreat flick. A bit hard to watch at times....but inspiring in that there are people in the world who are willing to stand up for themselves and others against all odds. I like that. A lot.

Pepper loves date night, too!

for my sweet little namesake...

I've been working on these birth announcements for little Sara! Mark..Jennifer...hope you like them! The first batch will go out this weekend!
I cannot wait to hold this baby! Only 10 more days until we get to meet her. Tommy and I are both excited. Isn't she gorgeous?

PS...Her mama is the one in the pink boa in the November Archives. They look just like each other....but she looks like her dad, too!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
