Long First Day

Uga VII, at the end of his first game at Sanford Stadium. Bless his heart; being popular will wear a little fella out.

Hot, Hot, Hot!

If we've ever been hotter at a football game, we can't remember it. Whew!

not sure what Todd is doing


Please notice Todd looking at Ashley's belly!

Can you see the sweat?

We are so ready (just like Uga VI always was) for the first game of the season! It promises to be a great tailgate, too, with plenty of family and friends. Although we'll miss Uga VI, we are fired up that we will be at Sanford Stadium when Uga VII starts his career. Gooooooo, Dawgs! Sic 'em! Woof, woof, woof!

Exponentially Unflattering

Several of us have been wondering who told Hillary those pantsuits were a good idea. Apparently we're not the only ones; the JammieWearingFool referenced Hillary's collection of 'double-wide' pantsuits (his words) and provided this picture of aides making her color choice.

Burning Questions

Will the sofa make the turn?
Will the girls flush their restroom pass?
Will Sylvia's impressions spawn a new career in Hollywood?
Will we ever be allowed back at La CabaƱa?

Confused Cats

Miss Scarlett and Putter Davis sit on the breezeway and look in through the raindrops on the window, wondering why we don't make the rain stop so they can go play.

The Weekend

We're back from a wonderful weekend with the Gaines at their home in Highlands, NC. The cool mountain breezes were a welcome respite from the sizzling temperatures we had here last week. The Gaithers were also in town and the six of us had a lot of laughs together. The highlight of the weekend was our hike on Whiteside Mountain. Gorgeous (the view, not us)!

E.W. and Gaither lead the way.

The guys talk and walk.


At the top of the trail. 

We're proud! No one who knows us will believe we made it.

Studmuffins on the trail.

So gorgeous.

Happy Hikers

One last look.

How Blessed We Are

Ellie isn't quite ready to make her appearance, but as evidenced by the generosity of today's shower guests, she is already spoiled! I can't express the gratitude in my heart for the blessing of good friends who share our joy.

Lots of women. Lots of talk.

Ashley and Wanda talk it over.

Sylvia cuts into the Most Delicious Cake Ever.

Thanks, Chanon and Kay.
Also, check out Angie and Chanon back there!

Serita gives Ashley a gorgeous gown
for Ellie's baptism,
an heirloom in the making.

Yes, we like to talk!

Sweet sisters!

Silly sisters.

Good friends who share our joy are true blessings.

Hostesses, grandmamas, mamas, and an auntie.
