Grace cheering at the first home Basketball game for the Generals!!!!

Ornaments from years gone by......

These are some my boys have did over the years, Grace a few new things from school this year I need to get pictures of as well. I wouldn't trade these for any ornament or any money. They are truly priceless.

My Sweet Brandon PaulPaul, sweetly spoiled!

Captain D's

I haven't worked for Captain D's since 2001 , so I was surprised at how hard this hit home. The location where I started back in 1986, just months after it opened was destroyed by fire last week. This was an intense fire. In all the time I worked for D's and since, I've never know a fire to get that bad, that it destroys the building. I met Paul Ray there on my first day of work 08/26/1986, and also my very best friend Bonny.

I hope they rebuild it, but it wont be the same. Paul Ray was the manager that opened that location.

A day at the aquiram

Black Friday

Tradition is alive and well. I love traditions. Bonny and I have been shopping together on Black Friday for a long time. Ashlee started going when she got old enough. This was Grace's second year. Not sure how long we'll be able to do that. This year was special, the four of us spent the night in Myrtle Beach this year. It was great. We were exhausted by the time our heads hit the pillow.

The two cuties.

I think Grace was telling her ENOUGH

Sorry, we didn't take alot of pictures. This was in Pawleys Island on the way home.

Family Traditions, what a wonderful thing.

Thanksgiving Party

What a cute class all decked out for the parade.

My little Indian
Just a random pic that I love.

My Little Man is 5

My little man is Now 5, can you believe it. Seems like yesterday he was toddling around my house on those days we got him. He is growing up so fast.

Ok, I forget what you call it. But there is lots of candy in that eyeball and the kids all want it.
Grace is taking her turn at it.
Somebody got it open.

Time for Cake. IT was a dress up party. Little Mans mom went back in the Hippie Day.

Hunter Boy, the only one of the 3 who would look at me long enough to get a decent picture.

Bam Bam has his second outfit of the night!
I Want More Candy Mom! Back to Bam Bam and he looks Tired!
happy birthday little man, we love you.


I have had the pleasure of working for most likely the worlds best boss since March 2005!!!!!! He and his partners owned the local Dunkin Donut Shops here in Charleston, well in 2007 he sold the stores, stayed on as a small owner and operator.
He has left the company, too many details that cant be posted. This has been and continues to be an extremely stressful time. Cant explain it but it has felt like a loss of a family member.
Not sure what will happened in the future, but I do know that I am stress extremely thin. One person cannot do this job the right way. We have the accountant (Chief Financial Officer) coming down to spend a few days with me this week. Lets hope I get through this week shall we. I have always loved this job, I hope that I find that once again, but I'm not holding my breath.

Baby Boy turns 24 and My Uncle Terry has s surprise party on the same day.

My baby boy has turned 24.

He has so much going on, and I am so proud of him. He is engaged and will be married on March 6. Mental note toself, dont forget the tissue.
They are in the process of buying a home and he is going to school full time on top of working.

Happy Birthday Brandon, I love you!

Lyndsey threw him a very nice birthday party.

For years I would buy the boys every Monopoly game that came out. It was unreal. I'm happy to say that Lyndsey is carrying on the tradition. She is going to make a very good mother one day, but NO hurry.

Grace is helping him open his gifts.

The Friday night before Paul Ray and I went to the Mercy Me concert, the band that opened before them was Fee. I got Brandon a shirt, cd and guitar pics for his Birthday.

His cake the Lynds got him.

This was his other gift from me. My boys love Cookie cake, one year for Brandons birthday, there was half a cake left of a very Large cake. His dear sweet brother ate every single bit of it without Brandon knowing it, so I hear about it all the time. So I wanted to make sure he would have cookie left over.

Random cute pic of Grace and her friend.
Growing up, I spent alot of time at my Uncle Terrys house. His daughter threw him a suprise birthday party.
Happy Birthday Uncle Terry, I love you.

My mom and Grace playing in the dirt. YUCK!

Grace being silly
