Today was our annual family get together. I had a wonderful time. We have it at my brother's farm. This is my little great niece. She is 2 years old and cute as pie! I loved this little outfit on her. This is not the best picture and it is of her back, but she is adorable. She loves all things girly; jewelry, purses, shoes, bows and ribbons, and she even gets excited over new panties!!

Everybody brought some food but my nephew here was the one who fried the catfish and hushpuppies. He loves doing it. He was wearing his "SuperDad" shirt.

We played Corn Hole. I had never heard of this game until about 2 weeks ago when I saw a sign about it and someone told me, so this was my first time playing. I got to play several games and I really enjoyed it to the max. I was half way decent at it. Probably beginner's luck. I had to leave before I got to play very much unfortunately. These are two of my nephews.

It was a good day but it went by too fast. I had lots of food, lots of hugs, and lots of fun. Can't beat that.

My Sunday Sign was one I took today on the way over there, and it speaks the truth!

Sounds like a good time, especially the catfish and hushpuppies. ;D

You're right, that sign speaks the truth, absolutely.

Have a blessed Sunday, Rachel.

I guess your fall didn't do any permanent damage if you can play that game.
I'm glad you weren't hurt, please becareful out there walking along the road.

Corn Hole game reminds me of 'horshoes' and 'boule.'
There is an association to promote the game, complet with Web site. It also has directions, etc.

I believe its mainstay will be the diversity of its appeal. There should be a lot more kids and ladies playing these than, say pitching horseshoes.

Thanks for your visit Rachel and your encouraging words....! I hope I can work it out, too...It depends on if there will be lots of other people there, besides the cast....When people come here to my house, they KNOW the drill---If they have a little cold or feel like they are getting sick...Well, they don't come.
I have no cobtrol over what I might encounter there in the theatre. There are ALWAYS peoole milling around and especially because it is a "dress" rehearsal there could be more people than usual...We will see.

I sure wish I could put Music on my blog--(Just haven't learned how to do that yet...) Cause I would love for you all to actually hear the song, since the MUSIC is what I wrote, in this case....
I just don't have a clue as to how you do that!

That's a wonderful church sign and a wonderful heart felt video that Jamie Dawn provided the link to.

Your family reunion sounded wonderful and you'll have to tell us about the game cornhole...I've never heard of it.

Your little g-neice is cute, even from the back. I love it when little girls are very girlie. She sounds so sweet.

"BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE" It can't be any truer. God bless our troops.

It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Would you believe I've never had catfish or hush puppies?
I suppose there might be catfish around here in the waters, but I never caught any. I'll have to look up a recipe for hush puppies. I think I might like that.
Your niece's outfit is darling. Love the colors.
