New Update below... I picked up my nephew at his school today and we took a little drive. Cloudy and cool, it looks like Autumn has finally decided to stay. The leaves are beautiful now...lots of yellow, red and orange mixed in with the constant greens. We thought we would take you along for the ride. I hope you don't mind if we play Sesame Street Classic Songs. It's all the rage among the 4 year old set. So, as the strains of Rubber Ducky begin, we will sing (Oh yes you will...Boo will demand that you will!) and enjoy the leaf peeping... Can you see the leaves falling? There was a gentle breeze and each small gust tossed a few around in the air. We sat for a moment and listened to the rustle... This is how we enter our development...I love the trees along the streets. That is a small city park at the top of the street. Turning the corner into our alley way... Pulling into our driveway... Kinda pretty eh Boo Man?? To some it may seem like dreary ol' day but I love rainy weather. How I wish I could send some of this to Southern California. We have several friends, included many blog friends, in the area. All are in our prayers and thoughts. Today is my brother and sister in law's 15th anniversary. It seems like only yesterday they were married in a lovely log church in Gatlinburg, TN. It was a sunny, cool day and the trees were at their color peek. It was a sweet and precious day. My sis in law just called and said that my brother, without any hints from his pushy big sister mind you, sent 2 dozen roses to her desk at work. Good going little bro! I will be watching the little Boo tonight so they can have a quiet dinner. I always cherish time spent with the small guy. Happy Anniversary Jim and Lisa! Update: I have just discovered that we can also celebrate Pat's 100th post, Rosemary's (in Ca) 31st anniversary and the 15th anniversary for Robin (at Bittersweet Punkin'). It is also Terri's (of Lakewood Manor) gorgeous daughter's birthday! Stop by and wish each of them a happy day! I send you all hugs and smiles aplenty! On a somber note, I need to add this update. Please do visit Sandi and Kari today. Their handsome family member, Joey Andrus, left this world due to his horrific work related injuries. Words can not express what is in my heart. Keep Joey's family in your prayers, especially his wife, mother and 2 young sons.
