Weekend wrap-up: October 16-18

These wrap-ups are much more effective if you actually do them immediately after the weekend, but for posterity's sake ...

I appliqued all of these shirts for the kids on Thursday night at my parents' house. (I guess that is technically not part of the weekend, but my weekend starts on Wed. night due to my work schedule.)

Friday morning, we went to ballet, and then I drove the kids to Will's parents' house for the rest of the weekend.

Will had a work function Friday night and it was fun to have a completely free date night!

Will and his boss Rod.

Rod's wife Missy. They were some of our first friends in Tuscaloosa when I was in law school there.

Will's business partner Chris & his wife Karen.

Our entertainment for the evening were these three "singer/songwriters". These guys were AWESOME! Or maybe I just had a lot of wine. Actually, they were all very good and I knew hit songs that each of them had written, which means they are pretty big time because I don't really listen to country music.

Tommy Lee James, Byron Hill and Wayne Carson below. James wrote Gary Allan's current hit "Today". Hill has written several George Strait hits (none are coming to mind right now ... remember, lots of wine). Carson blew us away with his hits "Always on My Mind" (Willie Nelson style), "The Letter" and "The Clown" (recorded by Waylon Jennings).

Will, Rod & Chris.

Will's district (minus Stephanie & Toria)

Early Saturday morning, Will and I headed to T-town to watch the Alabama/South Carolina game. This was my first game of the year and it was so freakin' cold. 35* during the game at 6:45 that night. We will not prepared for that kind of weather to say the least. Fortunately, Bama pulled out a win, so it was worth it I guess?!?

Our friends David & Nikki ... our faithful tailgate buddies.

Ah ... the game finally begins.


My kiddos sure were glad to see me on Sunday morning. Man, I look tired after getting in from the game around 1:00 AM. I loved all the cuddle time I got ... I may have to send them away for a couple of nights more often!
