FALL HOMECOMING DANCE...REMEMBER THOSE!
































THIS PAST WEEKEND, OCTOBER 20TH WAS 15 YEAR OLD'S HOMECOMING DANCE! YOU WOULD THINK THAT SHE WAS GETTING MARRIED...THE UPDO, THE SHOES, THE FLOWER FOR THE BOY...OH MY...THE EXCITEMENT! LUCKY FOR ME SHE WORE MY NIECE'S DRESS, SO SAVED ON THAT BUT SPURGED ON EVERYTHING ELSE! HERE ARE PICS OF THE DANCE AND BOY "FRIEND". OH AND OF COURSE BROTHER AND SISTER HAD TO GET INVOLVED IN THE PICTURES...AND DAD...AND ME AND THEN THE BOY "FRIEND" CAME. HE WAS SO CUTE, SO EMBARESSED BY THE ALL THE PICTURES I WAS TAKING, SO HERE ARE JUST A FEW MORE OF THEM, OTHERWISE I WOULD HAVE 15 PICTURES IN ALL POSTED, BUT WON'T BORE YOU...THEN 21 YEAR OLD WAS HOME FROM COLLEGE, SO HER BOYFRIEND PICKED HER UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS TO GO OUT AND YEP... I SNAPPED A PICTURE OF THEM!! 21 YEAR OLD HAS BEEN DATING CHRIS FOR ABOUT 6 YEARS, THEY MET IN H.S., HE IS LIKE MY OTHER SON TO ME. WHEN WE GO ON VACATION, HE COMES TOO! I JUST LOVE HIM!!! A REALLY GOOD AND SWEET YOUNG MAN!!

OH SOOO MANY THINGS GOING ON OVER IN MY HOUSE. 19 YEAR OLD BROUGHT HIS GIRLFRIEND HOME TO MEET US SAT NIGHT, BUT DIDN'T WANT TO EMBARRASS THE GIRL, SO I DID NOT TAKE A PICTURE OF HER (YET)! WILL GIVE HER SOME TIME TO REALIZE THE CRAZINESS THAT GOES ON OVER HERE, BUT I REALLY LOVE ALL THE CRAZINESS...WHEN ALL OF THEM ARE OUT, IT IS WAY TO QUIET AROUND HERE!

AND OF COURSE, HAD TO ADD PICTURES OF COOPER IN HERE. YOU WILL BELIEVE THIS, BUT ACROSS THE STREET LIVE 5 (YES I SAID 5) LITTLE ONES UNDER THE AGE OF 8 AND THEY COME TO CALL ON "COOPER" EVERYDAY TO SEE IF HE CAN COME OUT TO PLAY, SO TOOK SOME PICTURES OF COOPER AND HIS PALS (ONLY 3 WERE OUT THAT DAY)...HERE COOPER IS TRYING TO GIVE THE OLDEST GIRL, HIS PAW, (OH HE IS LEARNING VERY FAST HERE WHO TO GIVE HIS PAW TOO WHO WILL THEN GIVE ME HIM A TREAT)...TYPICAL MALE!! SHE IS THE SWEETEST LITTLE GIRL AND MY HEART GOES OUT TO HER, SHE IS LEGALLY BLIND, BUT HAS 4 YOUNGER BROTHERS WHO NOT ONLY LOOK UP TO HER, BUT WHO LOOK OUT FOR HER!! IT JUST MELTS MY HEART!! HERE ARE MORE PICTURES OF HIS PALS THROWING THE BALL FOR HIM TO CATCH, THAT IS THERE FAVORITE GAME... AFTER 20 MINUTES OF RUNNING, HE IS WIPED OUT...."OPPS, NO I AM NOT, JUST TAKIN A BREAK" MOMENT!!! "WAIT, WHERE ARE THEY GOING, OH...THEY ARE WIPED OUT, NOT ME!"

AND FINALLY, SOME COOL PICTURES OF FALL I TOOK ON FRIDAY...FALL IN ILLINOIS!
I AM NOW CERTIFIABLE, BECAUSE I RIDE AROUND WITH MY CAMERA TRYING TO CATCH THE TREES CHANGING THEIR COLORS. OH I REALLY LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!!

NOW TO CATCH UP ON 2 DEADLINES (2 SWAPS), I MUST WORK ON THESE TODAY!!!!

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT MONDAY,

LOTS OF HUGS FROM WARM (82 DEGREES) ILLINOIS.
