Here I am again.

Having a bit of a time trying to decide what to chatter about.  All sorts of things run through your mind until you sit down at the keyboard.  It is frustrating when that happens.  So here goes.

Football season is upon us, and here in Wisconsin it's always a big deal.  We love our Packers and Badgers and are not shy about it.  We always have a friendly rivalry with out Bears loving cousins and friends.  Usually while the game is playing, lol. Of course there are those that take it too seriously but we don't let them get to us.  It's a football game.  Just that, a game.  Win or lose it really doesn't change anything for us.

This year our Badgers get to play LSU at Lambeau field, home of the Packers, in a non-conference game..  I hear they're pretty excited to go there.  To start the season off we're having an end of summer, beginning of football yard party.  Hoping to have a tv set up outside to play the game.  If not that definitely the radio going.  I'm sure there will be lots of Badger shirts etc., so hoping to get some shots of all the fun.  Will share if I do.

Guess I better go.  There is this little ball of fur who has to go outside.

You all take care out there.

The Big Event.

Well I'm back.  Missed telling you all about the big event in the family last year.  My son Jared married his Heidi.  It was a wedding we will never forget.  They decided on a late October wedding, and yes, they had a Halloween theme.  Guests as well as all the wedding party joined in the fun fully and completely with decor and costumes.  It was held across the river from where we live in that beautiful Big Hill Park I've used for pictures at times.

Here is a picture of the Bride and Groom.

His daughters.

Me, hubby (Capt. Jack) and Carson & Nicole.

A closer look.

Don't have a picture but her parents were dressed as a King and Queen.  
The wedding party.
It was all such fun.

I had heard of such theme parties, but this is the first one for me.  

I would scan and do more but that would be a bit much.  
Hope you enjoyed looking at them.  

Love Terry

I'm a bad girl.

I am ashamed.  I didn't realize just how long it's been since I've been here.  Hope you all peek in to see I'm still around.

Things around here are about the same as usual.  Family functions seem to take up a ton of time.  Guess that's the rewards of a big family.  Had two graduate from high school this year and one last year.  One left but that will be two years from now.  Normal yard parties etc.

Had a bought with a frozen should last year during the fall.  Six weeks of therapy and it works just fine now.  Guess I wasn't working hard enough with that arm.  LOL.  All other checkups for then were just fine.  Now it's time to start that routine again.  Lost a few pounds so the dr. should like that.

All the kids are doing fine as are the grandkids. One (Austin) starts college to be a teacher, another (Aaron) added another year to his studies for a double major.  He's taking forensics and police science.  Has been spending the summer working as an intern in a forensics lab and just loves it.  Two of the girls are taking online classes.  Alyssa I'm not sure what, Nicole was planning on journalism but decided on special ed daycare.  Carson is the one with two years left of high school.  I don't think she's decided yet, but I don't think with her grades (straight A's for 10 years so far) she'll have a problem getting if when she does.

Well that's enough rambling on for the first time back.  You all take care.
