Tennessee Titans.............

Are you ready for some football? I sure am. Today is gonna be a good one.

Titans vs. Jets and Brett Farve. Matthew and Daddy have gone to the game...bummer for me and Jaden.

Matthew has been a Brett Farve fan since he was about 5.

Don't ask me why because we have no family there , and we are not fans but oh well. I guess most everyone likes him to a degree.

I am a HUGE fan of the Titans. I love it. I have loved it since they came to Nashville and didn't look back. I have been to many , many games. Sat in the heat for pre-season and have sat in the bitter cold. I will make it to one this year again. Hope to a playoff game.

So how about it, if you are not from here do you follow the team that is 10-0. I would like to know who you like and do you follow the BEST team in the NFL right now?

Go Titans!

7 year old with the coolest JOB !

Man I love this game.

Jaden picking up all the balls (per Coach)

Oh, how he loves this.

Yes, he does.

Ya see, my son is the little guy who brings the high school team onto the court during all home games, a few away games, and most off the playoff games.
This is his 4th yr to do this. It is just the coolest thing ever. When it comes around to the beginning of the season Jaden switches gears from baseball, from football (somewhat), and into full BASKETBALL mode. Jaden is the first one to run out with the rest of the team behind him. He goes down and takes a shot then heads to the middle of the court giving the team high fives while they practice before game. SO COOL!

This means going and buying new shoes, new shorts, new shirt.

He is loved , loved, loved by the students at school. He is quiet a celebrity around. We can go places and people see him and will say in a little quiet voice "look, that's the kid that runs out with Siege's basketball team". It is just the greatest.

Well, last night was the first game of the season and it was just as sweet as ever.

Ok guys, pick up a step
We WON! 94-48

Random Wednesday

It's been a while since I have posted anything so I thought I better catch up.
It has been a busy week or so. It seems like everyday it is something.
Last week I got the mail, and in the mail was the sample of Matthew's graduation invitation.
Ok.... I was not ready for that. It is getting more and more real. The next day he brought home all the stuff to order all that STUFF!
This is a funny moment. Almost as good as Matt's pink eye...
Yesterday I picked Jaden up from school and when we got home I was taking my boots off and he just so happened to look over and see them.
Ok, they are black, high boots just like you all wear.
Well Jaden looks at me and says "Hey Mom, those are cool, they look like KISS boots. Ya know, as in the rock group KISS>
I'm thinking you have got to be kidding me.
See below for the rest of the story
KISS BOOTS...Thanks Jaden

Here is Jaden heading to school. He is very much into the rock n roll look. He loves Music and loves all the stuff that goes with it.

Jaden doing homework... yes he thinks his hat looks like what Rocker's wear.

Matt Bowling. He has been doing really well. He is 2nd in the district right now. We go back on Monday for his arm. It does not bother him bowling, but it does when
he throws baseball.
Hope you all have a good week. Next week is Turkey time. For me , it is put the tree

Hey Mom "I think I have Pink EYE"

I am at work today doing pretty much nothing since NOONE wants to buy houses today. Anyway, Matthew
is at school and is NOT suppose to be texting his Mother all morning about school stuff, grades (good), and all that junk.
Well, I get back from lunch (yea I get a lunch break in real estate) and Matthew sends me this text message that says just this " I think I have pink eye". I send him one back ... "well don't rub it and I will look at it when you get home and we have some drops for it".
He replies a few minutes later and says these exact words " I had 2 contacts in my left eye!! How did that happen?" I about rolled out of my chair. I am sitting there shaking my head and sent back to him "because you goofey or one jumped out of your right eye and landed in your left eye".


Yes, this is the kid with Pink eye.... LOL

Field Trip without Mom

Today Jaden's class was going on a field trip and if any of you know me you know that
I don't usually miss stuff like this. But this time to be honest it was not something I was very excited about so I DIDN'T sign up to go.
Well , Jaden just assumed I was going. So this was the conversation this morning.
Jaden sais "Mom, you better get your jeans on for the field trip
I said "Jaden I am not going on that one today"
Jaden said "your not going"?
I said "No, I didn't sign up to go to this one so you will be with your teacher and the other parents that go.
Jaden said" well I guess that means I am a BIG boy since you are not going"...
I said "yes, you are a big boy but that is not why I didn't go, I just wanted other parents to have a chance to go too".
My baby is growing up. He will be 8 in Feb. I can't believe it.
The meaning to the story is that Jaden wanted me to go,and I hate I didn't go,
but he feels like he is REALLY cool and BIG that he is going and
will have a GREAT time.

In war, there are lives risked and lives taken
Men and women giving their best to defend what they love
They defend their country
Their honor
Their people

Some call them soldiers
Others call them heroes

Our veterans have risked their lives for us
They have lived through hell and fought with honor
Many have killed
And regret doing so

For every life, there is a soul
For every soul, there is a life
For those who have died, we show great appreciation and remembrance
For those who live, along with them live the horrific memories of battle
Some, memories of defeat
Some, memories of victory

Our veterans were more than soldiers
They were, and still are heroes

Because of You, Unknown Soldier

Do you know anyone who is serving in the military
right now?
I have lots of family that did.

Wow! Can it really be my 100th

post on my blog. I had to back and double check that.

I have a busy day today helping at the High School to help with the baseball teams
fundraiser . In other words, just a money maker so it helps us not have to pay so
much. Oh, and lets not mention that it right now is 39 degrees outside. I gotta find my
gloves to go to the baseball field. It should be fun. They are having homerun derby. And
singing and all that. Hey, he is a senior and I should be cherishing these moments , huh?

Anyway..... I posted a link to the right for a Christmas tour of homes. If you want to put this on your blog just click the link. I thought it would be very neat for all of us to share pictures of our homes for Christmas.
Any collections you many have, your tree, your outside lights and just all the
pretty decor.
Since we can't all visit everyone's houses at Christmas I thought this was a neat idea to share
the holiday season.

So how about it, are you in?

3 weeks....

until Thanksgiving will be over and I will be putting up all the Christmas Decorations.

I can't believe that it is this time of the year. Already.

I love decorating for Christmas. I love putting up the tree. I love snow.

I love buying gifts. I love the meaning of Christmas. I love seeing the happiness in

my kids eyes during Christmas. I love this time of year.

What about you? When do you put your tree up?

Do you love the holidays?

This made my day!

Saturday was my nephew's birthday party. His actual birthday is tomorrow, Nov 5th.
He will be 4.
Well to make a long story short I called my brother at last minute and said what can I get him. He said just give him money and we can put that towards a Nintendo DS.
I was cool with that. But as my wheels start turning and I thought about it, I called my Mom who I also knew was gonna give him money and said "lets go in together and get him and Nintendo DS", of course she had no clue what it really was but she was okay with that.
So I rush and get ready, head over to Best Buy, get the game and wrap it and head over to the party.
Well as it turns out he opened our gift first and here is the picture of him getting his Nintendo DS. It was pure joy. The look on his face was PRICELESS!
I loved that.
From what I have heard he has not put it down since he got it. And actually fell asleep playing it the other day.
Nothing like making a kids day! :)
And it made his Aunts day too... and Granny.
Happy Birthday Kolson!

Only one thing to say today!

I did early voting about 2 weeks ago, but if you have not voted
then get out there and VOTE.
Should be a fun night watching all this.

P.S. Mom, make sure you do get some rest tonight!

Sunday was a day of cleaning up and Watching my TITANS go 8-0. Gotta love that.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend
