These pictures of the boys are from our trip to Michigan in September. One of our friends there is a fireman, so of course, the boys got to dress up in their own fireman suits.
This is from Will's first hunting trip. He had a great time, unfortunately, this was the only deer they saw. Also, there were no hogs, but they did get to see some wild turkeys and lots of animal tracks. Will is ready to go again, although I still don't think he really understands "hunting."
Well, you may be asking why I entitled this post "My strange life." Today was Will's 6th birthday party. We had it at Trinity Park down by the Trinity River. Of course, Keith had to work and my mom and mother-in-law were both busy. So that meant I would be doing this party on my own. I decided that having all 3 kids by myself at a park, plus hosting, would be too much. I called a lady from my church who graciously watched Katie Beth for me. I arrived at the park right at 10:00, (when the party was to start) and set up. At 10:15, we were still the only ones there. A guy walks up to me just as the first guest is arriving and asks if I would mind being in a photo shoot. Apparently, they were so struck by my beauty that no one else would do. Ok, truth was they needed a mom and kids and their models had not shown up. I guess I fit the bill. I asked what it was for and he said it is for a guy named Tom Annunziato who is running for State Representative for Fort Worth. The boys and I will be part of his ad campaign. I don't know much about him except that he is just starting, is Republican, and supported Arlene Wohlgemuth, a former Rep. whose daughter was a friend of mine. Hopefully he stands for things I support. Watch your mailboxes if you live in District 99. (Wherever that is, I know it includes me.) They are supposed to email pics, so when I get them I 'll be sure to post them. I guess it's my first official modeling gig...and didn't pay a DIME!!! Oh well, I bet the calls will start rolling in once my face gets out there, then that's when you make the BIG BUCKS!
The other big news in our family is that John and Jennifer are moving to Atlanta. John had a great job opportunity there. He starts Nov 5, Jennifer and the kids will stay here to sell the house and finish out this semester. Then they all leave after Christmas. It will be so weird to not have them here. Not that we see each other that much, but we do some and family gatherings just won't be the same. However, Southwest flies to Birmingham which is only 2 hours from Atlanta, so I plan to be a frequent visitor. Whether they like it or not. :)
