Not me Monday is on vacation this week.
Grandma & Papa came the day after Christmas, so we have been enjoying their company. Yesterday, we had Emery baptized in the church I grew up in. Yes, I know...I had her dedicated at our church a few weeks ago. However, this is the church I was confirmed in, said goodbye to my dad in, got married in, and baptized Trey in. Therefore, I still have some ties to it.
After church, we went over to John and Kay's house...funny story behind that friendship. I don't think I'd get it entirely right, but long story short...John and Joe's dad had known each other from way back in the day when they grew up in the Mexia/Wortham area. Fast forward to Joe and I's college years, when Joe and I took Joe's parents to church one day and Joe and John ran into each other. Small, small world. We had a great time with them yesterday, and meeting some of their family. However, I left my camera...ruh roh! They're bringing it to me on Tuesday, whew!
Who knows what the rest of this week holds. My uncle John and aunt Debbie are in town, and I'm cookin' tonight. Hmmm, what to make. I think I'll get it out of my new autographed Lady & Sons cook book...Gotta love some Paula Deen!
Poor Joe has a round-robin basketball tournament. Whoever came up with that? I think Joe was lookin' forward to 2-and-barbecue. For those of you who don't know what that means, in the tournament world, that means if you lose 2 games, you get to go home early! Joe turns 29 on Saturday, so we'll have to see what's in store for that evening. One step closer to 30, yikes! :)
Well, I hope everyone has an awesome week and a Happy New Year!
