Catching Up!

Before I post Christmas pictures, I wanted to post some of our fall stuff. I actually have more, but I just scaled down to what I thought hit the highlights. We have had a busy fall, mostly with football seeing that Justus' team, the Brantley Bulldogs went all the way to state and won the Alabama 1A state championship title! I plan to actually post my football pics, (including homecoming), in a post sometime after the New Year. For now, I have this slide show from our Fall 2009. It starts with pics of my mom with my great niece and nephew and Wesley. Wesley and I made a visit home to Mobile in October. I wish I had gotten a picture of my singing group, Reflections, that I reunited with to sing at FBC Spanish Fort's homecoming, but of course I didn't think about it until it was too late. We had a good trip and got to spend some quality time with my mom.

The next pics are of our Fall Festival here at Mt. Zion. We had a good turnout even though we didn't really do a whole lot of advertising to the community. We mainly did it for our own kids, but plan to make it an outreach event in the future. It was really fun and all the planners and workers did a great job! There are also a few pics of Justus' birthday. I made cupcakes for him and the youth group since his birthday was on a Wednesday. On the following Saturday we surprised him with a new vehicle, a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport! I will have to post a pic of the whole truck another time, I'm not sure why I didn't get one then. It's really nice! He will be able to drive it (alone) in February. We also took him to Montgomery to eat at Olive Garden. I forgot to label it in the slide, but the girl with Justus is his girlfriend, Beth Ann. She is a really sweet girl! The last pics are just a couple from one of his last ballgames. They were extremely cold!!!

There are a couple of events I haven't got pics from to post or I didn't like the few I took. Graham and Justus took part in a Veteran's Day program at school. And, we spent Thanksgiving Day with the Harvey's! It was a lot of fun, but it was a quick trip, again because of football. We have had a fun and busy fall! I will post Christmas pics in a day or two, including our church's Christmas Parade float, which the boys got to ride! Thank the Lord, it was scheduled before the heavens decided to open up with all the rain! We could definitely have a White Christmas if it was just cold enough!
