Gran's big day

Let the birthday celebrations begin! Our family has quite a string of birthdays to celebrate in late March and April and the kickoff began on Friday with our niece Riley. That sweet, sweet girl is 8 years old now and continues to be a light in our lives!

Next up was the Great Gran on Saturday. Now when it comes to my big day, I can assure you that the very last thing I plan to do is have a garage sale, but that's what Gran & Pap decided to do. They're getting the white house on Washington ready to sell and insist that even after this weekend, they'll still need at least one more sale. That night, a group of us headed to Hendrix, Oklahoma to eat and one of Gran's favorite eateries-The Dock. This place is only open on Friday and Saturday nights and MAN do they do the business!! It's an all-you-can-eat place that is heavy on the catfish and shrimp. Peyton practically eats his weight's worth in peel-n-eat shrimp whenever we go while Preston prefers the fried variety with ketchup!

Afterwards we headed back to our house so that Gran could "open" up her present. She asked for rose bushes to plant out at the new house, so we picked out some really pretty ones that will yield yellow blooms. This made her smile! She told us the story about how each time she or one of her sisters had a new baby, her dad (Papa Burt) would send them yellow roses. We hadn't heard this story before so it made the choice even more special.

We capped off the weekend with a nail-biting viewing of the Baylor Lady Bear's tight win over UTSA. Hopefully they'll get themselves together before they play again Tuesday night. Both Baylor teams play that night, so SIC 'EM BEARS!

Oh and guess whose birthday is next?? If you guessed me, you would be so right! Only 2 weeks and counting!!! I LOVE BIRTHDAYS!!
