Aren't these little McDonald's Happy Meal toys just the cutest? I wasn't really interested at first and then I saw Dorothy and had to have them all. Of course, by that time they had been out for a while so I couldn't find the lion ANYWHERE (yes, I even asked on Facebook). Finally, had to resort to Ebay and just paid a tad more that a regular Happy meal so not too bad!!

We met Jackie and her fmaily at Cracker Barrell. After we ate, we hing outside on the rocking chairs for a while. Greg and Taylor decided to try a (not so) friendly game of checkers. As you can see by Taylor's face.....she still has not gotten over the sore loser attitude that she has had since she was 4 and playing Candy Land!!!
Drew wanted to go to the football game but I am not ready to drop him off at a high school game like he wanted us to. So I said we would all go and he could just pretend we weren't there. Addi had the best time. I think I need to invest in some Hornet wear for her because I have a feeling we will be going to a lot of these games! Fun night!!
Meet Suzy Homemaker....aka, my sister Jackie. When we take Drew to church on Wednesday nights, it's close to her house so we usually just visit with her instead of making two trips. Tonight she declared that she was going to make us all dinner (Keith had JUST flown in from DC). Well, when I call her Suzy Homemaker, I joke....because like me (and our mother) she is not. We all hate to cook. But it was the funniest thing....when we got there she was SO into cooking this meal. We were all cracking up. It looked like Thanksgiving was about to happen. You should have seen the look on Greg's face when he walked in from work. We had crescent chicken, fresh corn on the cob, broccoli rice casserole and Taylor made a cherry cobbler. And it was YUMMY!!! I told her I think we should make this a Wednesday night tradition. She didn't really agree.
Hiram High School has a (very) small hometown parade every year fro homecoming. I always like to go and take the kids because we see all of the kids that I have had in school through the years and they are all grown up now. I love seeing them. This year, Drew was really into it because he is getting closer to high school and really knows a lot of the kids. This is Isaiah, my next door neighbor. I have known this kid since he was 3 and he is a junior now. He used to terrorize Drew's toys and we were constantly telling him not to ride this or throw that, etc. But now he is a big 16 year old football player and just as sweet as pie!
