The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Happy Birthday Reese!

Reese and his "gear."

Today is Reese's 2nd birthday! We are not celebrating today because Brent is out of town. We will celebrate next week. So today has been pretty low key. I can't believe it has been two years. My little "spit-fire" is growing and growing. I can't wait to see what adventures this two year old will lead us on.

Oh the Places You'll Go!

Congratulations!
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself

Any direction you choose.

You're on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.


Oh the places you'll go! There is fun to be done!

There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.

And the magical things you can do with that ball,

will make you the winning-est winner of all.

Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be,

with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.


Except then they don't.

Because, sometimes, the won't.


And will you succeed?

Yes! You will, indeed!

(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)


Kid, You'll move mountains!


So.. be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray

or Moredacai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,

you're off to great places!

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting.

So...get on your way!
