Gage's First Thanksgiving


All was quiet in the parlor yesterday. We spent Thanksgiving with lots of family members at Kevin and Dawn's house. Dawn is a Paula Deen wannabe. lol. She loves to cook and she does it very well. I've never seen so much food..I lost count of people at number 20 and she still had lots of leftovers. Gage made good use of those 5 teeth he has. Loves him some mashed 'taters'. I have so many cute pics of him. More pages on the way.

We hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for it makes me ashamed of complaining of aches and pains. Sometimes, I need to be reminded of my many blessings...they far out number anything that I could complain of!!


I made this page using AngelScrapper's "Fall Splendor" kit.

Ya gotta take the bad with the good but it all works out in the end.

Bad = the fact that Cory's high school football team lost their playoff game last night, so their season is over. But they did put up a good fight and had a mostly good season. Being ranked #5 in their division in the state. I'd call that something to be proud of.

Good = just finished watching my beloved Alabama Crimson Tide beat up on Mississippi State. Yeah, Roll Tide! (nope, even though I'm a TN southern belle, I've never been a Vols fan.)

Great= just came back into the parlor and found that two of my dearest "missing in action" friends had visited for hot toddies while I was watching the game. Sorry I missed you Sylvia and Jay!!! Great to hear from you all again....y'all come back real soon now, ya hear!! LOL. Sure have missed you guys, but I certainly understand how real life doesn't always allow time off for playing.

Haven't had a lot of play time myself recently. Miss Fluff is learning to walk (heaven help me when she fully gets the hang of it, lol) and Gage is trying his best to crawl. Right now he finds that he can usually roll to where ever it is he wants to get to. I can tell he is going to be a very independent little dude..when we stand him up he keeps trying to push our hands away as if to say..."I can do it myself, thank you very much!" They are both so funny when they are here together. Wednesday was a "Gracie" day and Kevin brought Gage by to visit. Well, Gage is so totally possessive of his Papaw..he laid his head down on Papaw's chest and just stared at Gracie as if to say "my Paw..don't even think about touching him". But they really do love each other, Gracie wants to give Gage kisses but she is almost afraid to because he is all hands and wants to just grab her and pull her to him. lol. Gotta teach that young man some manners on how to treat a lady, lol.

Oh yeah, forgot to say I got reports back from X-rays and CT's. Have to see an orthopedic doc. Something about severe degeneration of C5/6 and C6/7 spine with disc narrowing and osteophyte formation. No wonder I've been in so much pain. I think the short term for all this is simply "OLD AGE". lol.

Well, must get ready for bed now, gotta get up early for church and going to be a busy week, we are having revival services all next week. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend and a fabulous week ahead..just 'plum' full of memories!!
Love and Hugs,
Miss Scarlett

Paw's Helper



Gage came dressed in his Carharts and work boots, all ready to help Paw in the yard. Looks as if he is telling Paw how things need to be done, and I'm sure Paw will agree to do it Gage's way.

Cory



Did I blink my eyes? Because that's how it seems. You have grown up so quickly right before my eyes.

This is Cory, our 15 year old grandson (older brother to Gage and Jacob). There is so much I could say about this young man. He never leaves our house without first giving hugs and a kiss to both Mamaw and Papaw and saying he loves us. Does the same thing even if we run into them at WalMart or the grocery store. He says he will never get to big to hug and kiss Paw and Maw even in public. LOL.

He's always been our sweet, loving, well behaved, well mannered, smart, helpful grandson. That's not to say that the others aren't. We have just been much closer to Cory because we always babysat him and "Jay" from the time they babies (and now we babysit Gage). He has grown into a fine young man, very involved with the youth group at church, makes top grades and plays football for his high school team. I came across his first grade picture and he had on a football sweatshirt so I thought it would be neat to picture him then and now.

Thanks for looking in and listening to me gush on and on about our Cory!

Her Royal Fluffiness



Being the typical "Miss Fluff", she was more interested in the treats than anything else. She was not happy with her crown at all, I had to take several pics to finally get a good one before she took it off and threw it for the 100th time. LOL. Oh well, I guess she doesn't need a crown to be the princess around here!

First Halloween for Gage


I'm sure he didn't understand it all, but he was totally captivated by the little creature looking back at him from the mirror. This little one simply makes our hearts melt! He is developing his own little personality which is a mixture of sweet, funny and loving combined with a just a dab of "I want it now!" The latter being a total lack of patience which I feel sure comes from his Papaw's side of the family! LOL.
