Happy Birthday Nathan...40!

Well, Vegas again! Yes, it's Nathan's 40th birthday...where else would we go?
We started the weekend with Nathan's marathon run. Great job Nate!

Only in Vegas...

Jamie, Mike and I doing the crew thing to do...wait! It was a beautiful day. We found a nice comfy spot on the astro turf.

Oh! The shirts. I had these shirts made as a surprise to Nate. Man did we have fun with these. EVEREYONE was giving Nate a shout out for his birthday. Even Prince at the Prince tribute band show that we went to. So very funny, we just might find another use for the shirts.

What an awesome tribute band. If you are ever in Vegas, go to Hooters and see this band! Very good. We had a ball.

As if we didn't have enough fun...the ACA, a new country award show was filming at our hotel! So we went to the red carpet event. Jamie and I were acting like two little high school girls.
Celebrity love!!

Carrie Underwood! So very pretty!!

Yuck, Carrot top!

Not sure of his name, but he sings that song Lover, Lover.
What a weekend! I forgot to mention I saw the Garth Brooks show! Oh my what a cutie! I sure do miss the G-man...

Nathan, Happy Birthday! Thanks for the memories...

a full life..

This is one of my favorite pictures! It is my grandparents on my Dad's side. Grandma Lilly and Papaw Mac. My grand ma passed away in 2007, my grandpa passed away before Thanksgiving. I just couldn't let it go by without sharing a little bit of their life with you.
They lived in Texas City, a small town in far south Texas. they were married for 63 years and 11 months! What a joy to be around. My grandfathers biggest joy in life was family. Oh how he loved being around people and he gave the best hugs! He was 93 years old. He was the founding member of the Texas City AA chapter. He was sober for 39 years. He was a man to be honored!
Love you Papaw Mac!

my little boy of fall

Well, the Joe-man was not a big fan of football! So I thought I should post these pictures because this might just be the last pictures of Joe playing any kind of sports! Really. he is just not that in to it! To say the least. Notice him in the huddle?? He is in the orange shorts.

Joe is playing center. He only liked this position because his goal was to see if he could hike the ball over the quarter backs head...

Oh well...on to the band! ;) If he is in the band I still can go to the Friday night football games!! Hey, maybe the drums?
