Play Ball!

August brings the first days of school as well as the
first day of fall sports.  Julia is playing volleyball and
John is playing football.
While the pace of practices, games and studying, too
will tax you, it sure is fun!

A Southern Belle Birthday

Every summer, we celebrate lots of birthdays.
This summer, we celebrated a big one!

The Evite invitations read:

Well Fiddle Dee Dee! 
Nan is seventy!

There it is.  Right on the world wide web.
And she doesn't even care.
If I am able to swim for miles when I'm seventy,
I won't care either!

We invited some friends for a Southern Belle Luncheon.
Look at them, they are all true Belles, of course.

We played a game of Gone With The Wind Trivia
with questions as easy as:

1) What was the name of the Wilkes' Family plantation?
(Twelve Oaks)

and as difficult as:

2) Another actress was signed to play Carreen, Scarlett's sister before production began.
The role was later given to Ann Rutherford.  Who was the first actress?
(Judy Garland)

We also ate the quintessential Southern Belle staple:
chicken salad.  The recipe is from the quintessential
Southern Belle Magazine: Southern Lady. (May/June 2010 edition)

While I got NO pictures of my tables, flowers, food
or  c l e a n  h o u s e (!!!)
I did snap this quick pic before I gave guests their favors.

While boiled peanuts may not be the preferred food for a lady's luncheon,
you might be surprised how quickly they disappear when no one's looking.

Thanks to these little Belles for all their help.
(Doesn't Kellye look great?  (Julia, too!!)  She says it's Spinach Smoothies! oh yum)

A big Happy Birthday to the Primo Southern Belle!

First day of school

I had to promise not to write anything "stupid" 
about this being the first day of school.
Nothing stupid.... Okay, I'll stick to the facts.
Julia is now in the 7th grade.
She is on the middle school volleyball team.
John is now in the 9th grade.
He is playing football.
I am so proud of them.
And... at the risk of being "stupid", this brings to mind the lyrics
from Sunrise, Sunset:
"I don't remember growing older,
(And that's a fact.)
