Just Drew being Drew

Well, he is going to be a skater punk for Halloween, but he can also be a sweet little boy. He learned the Marching Ants song in choir today! I actually got him to sit still long enough to get it on tape. Enjoy!

Lordy Lordy....I'm 40



My friends are the greatest! I had many birthday wishes today. Kim put some GREAT (sarcasm noted) 40 signs outside my classroom. My other friend, Liz, made me an LSU cake and gave me an LSU witch hat and pumpkin! Joe and I went to Mitchell's game and then we all went out to eat! It was a great day.

Update.

Not much else is going on. We are very busy with football. Our school's team is tied for first in district. This coming week is Homecoming, so it's going to be very busy for me. Mitchell's football team is doing so-so. They are 3-2. He is playing really well. All defense (outside linebacker) and some offense (full back).

Drew is getting excited for Halloween! He is going to be a punk rock skater....His costume cracks us up! It's got leather gloves and a spiked choker!

Spencer is buckling down with his school work. Chemistry is kicking is butt! Report cards come Thursday, so we will see if his social life comes to a screeching halt!

Joe is busy as usual with work. He won't be traveling this week to help me during Homecoming. Hope all is well with the Louisiana people! We will see you for Thanksgiving!

My Son, The Groupie


Spencer has inherited my love of music! He went to a concert Thursday night (never again on a school night, btw). It was Weezer and Angels and Airwaves...He is a BIG Angels and Airwaves fan (former Blink 182 members). He decided to befriend the tour manager in the parking lot and the tour manager brought Tom Delonge out of the trailer to meet Spencer and his friends....Spencer was FREAKED out......He was super excited and star struck. Friday evening when he got home from school, he went to the Weezer website and found that he and his friends had made their website....They were FRONT row. The above picture is from the Weezer website.

New Orleans and Friends...Nothing Better



Me and 7 friends took a road trip this weekend to celebrate my impending birthday. We started early, leaving Houston at 8:00. When we arrived in the Big Easy...there was no turning back. We had a blast. Something I will never forget. I am so fortunate to have good friends that gave up their weekend to come and celebrate with me. My highschool buddy even met us up there....After meeting, her....My Houston friends told me that "Understand why I am the way I am"....Don't know what that means, Keri....but I will take it as a compliment! All I can say is Bourbon street is still kicking at 4:30 in the morning!!!

My Boys - The Joksters



So I spent the weekend in New Orleans with my good friends to "pre" celebrate my 40th birthday. While I was gone, they decided to hide my prized autographed Les Miles football. When I got home, I looked in the glass case (Where it is guarded), and the picture is what I found...Notice, they let Drew "autograph" it....Les Miwos. I also got a birthday present from my mom. She bought Beignet the cutest LSU coat....He tried to bite it off..(After the Florida game, he probably didn't want to wear it).
