64 years!!

I talked with my grandparents last night for about an hour. They just had they're 64th anniversary on September 25th. Can you believe that? I asked grandpa what he did for grandma and he said that he opened a can of apricots for her and started laughing. Grandpa still drives around although he says it is getting harder b/c of his macro degeneration in his eye. Grandma talks a lot about dad when he was a boy and how glad she is that he was saved. She was pretty funny last night too b/c she was doing a colon prep for a colonoscopy this morning. About every 15 minutes she would say, "got to go poop!"

When you grow up, you wonder; what it's going to be like when I can drive? And then when you are driving you wonder, what is it going to be like when I get married? When you get married you are curious about what it 's like to have a child and so forth? Grandpa asked me last night if I had watched a lot of people die? I said yes and he said if I thought it would be painful. I got off the phone and couldn't stop thinking about it.

Mo's wedding

We drove to Memphis on Thursday night to meet up with everybody. Festivities started on Friday with pedicures for the girls, golf for the boys, and the rehersal at 3:00 in the afternoon. Friday night we went to Tunica and I think we look pretty good at the wedding considering!

Mo and Jeremy were high school sweethearts who reunited later on. How sweet!

Sarah did a great job singing, but I cut her off short cause I wasn't the videographer (if you can tell). She use to sing me to sleep at Harding, so a few bars of her sweet voice was worth the embarassment.

Gabe Matthew

Derek and I just got back from Nashville yesterday. We had a wedding in Memphis, but stopped in Nashville and stayed with Uncle Bob and Aunt Donna. We swung over to Whitehouse to see sweet baby Gabe Matthew Griffin who was only 8 days old!! I wanted to bring him home, but Derek said no.

New York Apples

We live within 10 minutes of about 6 different apple orchards. New York has the best apples! I took the kids yesterday with one of my neighbors and her children for some apple picking. We are going to be busy making some apple pies today!!! I also went to open house yesterday to meet Hannah's teacher. I don't know why but I don't like it when the teacher is younger than me. It makes me feel like I'm really the old mom of three sitting for open house! Anyways, Hannah's desk was neat (surprising I know!) and her teacher seems like a gem. I can't believe I have a second grader. Seriously, where does the time go?

Back from our travels!

We had a blast in Minnesota! It is so hard to be away from family and friends. The kids and I spent 14 days up there and Derek flew up for Labor Day weekend. We did a lot of fishing and Ben and Hannah tried water skiing for the first time. (Ben got up, but was dragged in a seated position around the lake!) The kids also did some tubing and spent time swimming at the beach. (too cold for mom). Speaking of mom; she is doing well and keeping busy with the church. I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer! Time to get back into a routine.
