Saints fever is spreading throughout the South in these weeks leading up to the regular season. Time to get the plastic bag and tub containing all our Saints paraphenalia, clothes, signs, etc. out from under Dora. Near the end of last season we bought our Sproley Oley tin can man to hang outside. Since Sproles is no longer a Saint (can I say what a sad day that was!) we’re going to convert him to another Saint before the regular season gets here. Gotta see who rises to the top during the pre-season before making that decision though!
The long awaited first Saints game of the pre-season was victoriously won last week and the second was also a victory by our Boys in Black and Gold! We’ll be more properly attired for the game next week since Roy, me, Chip, Kim, Madisyn, Braxton and Bentley now have new Saints Socks!!! I believe we must be Saints outfitted for every game so now we’re complete!
Madisyn came to stay with us one day last week. After dinner we went to Baskin Robbins which Madisyn use to call the special place that Paw Paw takes her to. It’s still a special place but she definitely knows the name of the place now. They allowed me to go with them this time and what a treat it was.
She and I spent the evening on the floor making homemade Christmas gift cards for her to give some of her family this year. I’ve always loved making them for our family and friends and now that she’s old enough and getting quite crafty we can do them together!
She spent the night with us and in the morning we went shopping for Saints clothes for her (she’s now wearing a precious Saints cheer leading outfit with pompoms) and grocery shopping with Grannie (half of the things I needed are still at the store).
We picked up fried fish dinners at Marcus’ fund raiser and came home where Chip (her daddy, our son) was waiting for us with a bouquet of roses! While we were shopping I even got my first “Oh Grannie you embarrassed me” comment (which she properly told me in private) from something silly I did. When she left I napped for two hours which I never do. I think it’s the Madisyn after effect!
Madisyn starts Kindergarten on Thursday and it’s so terribly hard to believe it’s been 5 years since she was just a tiny baby. I’m sure she will take the school by storm and pray that Chip doesn’t get those calls from her school I use to get about him!!! Here’s some pictures of this very special event!
No house showings this week but our real estate agent posted two pictures of a butterfly visiting our lantana bushes today. I’m looking out the RV window right now watching this very butterfly and it is so beautiful.
Ya’ll have a wonderful weekend and ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
