St. Louis Cardinals WORLD CHAMPS

Another item to scratch off of my list.....
go to a World Series Game.
Thanks, Ron & Karen, for the VIP invite.
As you can see, we all had a blast
watching our team get one game closer
to WINNING the World Series.
Friday nite we were happy to watch
the final game with our good friends
at a little spot in southern Illinois.
They'll be talking about Glen and his
dance for weeks to come!

Marthasville in the Fall

Just a glimpse of the beautiful fall colors
we saw in Marthasville today
at the German festival.
Of all times to have the telephoto lens,
but you get the idea.
It was nice just to be out walking around
in this part of our countryside.

I haven't been posting much lately.
My photography just hasn't been there
so nothing much to get excited about.
This next week I'm going to get
back to the basics,
starting with lighting.
Hopefully I'll have something to share.

ps - I'm SO EXCITED that I'll be going to
my first ever World Series Game on Tuesday night!
No matter what kind of shots I get there
I'll be posting here so be watching.

I am so not a cat person
but I couldn't resist taking this shot
of my sister's cat, Roosevelt,
who seemed a bit miffed that his
nap was disturbed by me hauling
stuff in for the shower.
Move over, Rosie.......
I could use a cat nap in the warm sunshine.

Grandpa's gift

And here is what GP Old Tim
presented to baby Grace.

Showered with love

Today was the baby shower
for our little
Grace Isabella.
GM Cindy went a bit
overboard, but GP Old Tim
tried his best to keep up with her
in the gift dept.
Lots of gifts
lots of pink
lots of folks
lots of LOVE.
Can't wait to meet you,
little baby Grace.

Saturday outing

Took my little buddies to the country on Saturday.
They didn't want to take any chances on getting the
best seats for the hayride,
so they decided to take
their picnic lunches and
eat them in the hay.
At least they got their fiber for the day!

Look who's SIX

Our sweet little Chloe turned six years old last week.
She was so happy that all of her "folks" came to celebrate
her special day with her.
Grandpa brought home this huge chocolate cake
and a cherry pie (her favorite) from the bakery.
Again, not your traditional bd cake,
but as you know by now
we make our own traditions.

Speaking of cake and tradition........
Lindsay came home from work the other
evening to find Jeff and Peyton sitting at the
kitchen table eating cake. They asked her if she
wanted some.
"Where did you get cake from?" she asked.
"It was in a box in the freezer," Jeff replied.
Once again, a new tradition was made.
on your two week anniversary!
