Merry Christmas

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were so afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:8-11

Friday Night Date

Friday, TC and I went on a date.  It had been a long time since we'd been out on a date.  We ate at Chili's...not very romantic, but we like it.  And you can get an appetizer, two entrees, and a dessert for $20.  Then, we walked around East Chase and did a little shopping.  I got three pairs of earrings from Claire's.  One pair looks like peacock feathers.  I'll have to see if I have the courage to wear them.  Then we went to see a play at AUM about 9/11.  It was written, directed, and acted by all AUM people.  It was very good.

Saturday, we got up early and went to a few yard sales.  I got two games (Connect 4 and Would You Rather?).  I hope they are fun!!  We also watched Alabama's win over Penn State!!

Sunday, we went to church and did a little bit of work around the house and back to church Sunday night.  Back to work for us both on Monday.

Did you have a good weekend?

We Will Never Forget

God Bless America

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children."
-George W. Bush

Hello, Anybody Still Out There??

Wow!!  It has been over a month since I last posted.  Life is busy!!  That's good, though! We went on a mini-vacation to Gulf Shores (and I didn't take the first picture).  We ate, shopped, ate, laid on the beach, and - did I mention-ate!!  It was fun, except that I didn't sleep that well in the hotel.  I don't know what was up with that.

AUM officially revealed the new mascot...The Warhawks!!

We welcomed football season this past weekend with win over Kent State (48-7)!!  We also welcomed some cooler weather...hope it lasts!!  Are ya'll as ready for fall as I am??
