Iowa City West High School, Homecoming Dance

Me, Emily, Trevor & Todd

Emily and her parents, Becky and Rick Graf

Trevor & Emily

Saturday night was Homecoming dance at Emily's high school. Trevor wasn't allowed to attend the dance this year, I guess it was due to the fact that he is a Sophomore in college and is so much older than some of the young high school students. We all thought this was odd considering that he has gone with Emily to Homecoming for the last two years. Anyway, they all got dressed up, we were invited to come and snap a few photos, then they all headed out for dinner. Todd and I went out for dinner with Emily's parents, Becky and Rick Graf, at a restaurant called Bob's Your Uncle in Iowa City. A good time was had by all!
Don't they make such a cute couple?

Puppy Love!

He is our new neighbor. Well, he belongs to our neighbors, Josh and Traci. He's a Saint Bernard pup and he's about 13 weeks old now. Porter is so sweet, he's a snuggler and he's so fun to play with. We try to get over there and hold him every couple of days because very soon he is going to be to BIG to hold!! Trevor and Emily (our son and his girlfriend) just love spending time with him.

Mama's Got a New Ride!

Oh, I am sooo excited and so lucky. We have been looking for a new car for a while, since our minivan blew up in the mountains of Tennessee on our way to visit our daughter Monica this past June. And, last week we finally found just what we wanted. Isn't she pretty? A sparkly Glacier White exterior with a gray/black soft leather interior. And a SUNROOF, I've always wanted one!  It has been so well taken care of, not a scratch or dent anywhere, just like brand new, only better because it's used (and so much less expensive). I think I'm in love.....
