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

Ants in his pants

I've got to organize my thoughts, but I have a post coming.  Reese is struggling with ADHD  ....and I just have to vent.
I know you are on pins and needles. (said with sarcasm)

growing up

I have tried to bring myself to change the boy's pictures on the right here, but I just can't bring myself to do it. 
I was showing my boss a picture of our living room yesterday, that I found on my blog from last Christmas, to get her imput on window treatments, and noticed just how much the boys have changed in just one year.
They change so quickly!
I think I will go home and take a million pictures of them today.

Bottle Buddy

Brooks has his first book report and bottle buddy due this week.

Bottle Buddy?

Meet Sacagawea.

It was made from a two liter bottle.  I am wondering if we can save this and let Reese do a report on, oh lets say, Pocahontas, when he gets in 4th grade.  Hmmm?

The only part I don't like about Christmas.....

Putting all the ornaments back in their boxes and putting them up.  We only had one ornament broken today in the process.  I would call that success.

It is not supposed to be this cold in the South.....

or at least it shouldn't be.  I can't tell you how long I waited today for the window to defrost.  I am sure I will miss it in the Summer.  How cold is it at your house?

Yep, it is still there.

I love Christmas.  I just can't bring myself to take the tree down yet.  I admit, it is still there.  I will enjoy the warm glow of the lights for a few more days...
