Sliding into Friday

Company leaves this morning - we've had a great time.

A little warmer today - Fall festival at church tonight.

Have a wonderful weekend.

The end is near

It's Thursday - the week is almost over - the end is near. Hang on, you can do it.

Steppin' stones

This path looks like fun! And warmer than it is here today.

I heard from Janice that Steve's surgery went well yesterday. Get well soon Steve!

Short people

My grandkids are growing up too quick. Their parents were supposed to put books on their heads to keep them little. What has happened?

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Fly away

Kardia and her Grandpa (Dale) Kleeman back in August of this year. At least Dale is enjoying himself - Kardia seems to just be taking it all in.

It's Sunday - have a great time at church!

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. (Psalm 111:1)

Saturday drive

The sky in this photo looks like our sky outside here in Cookeville - Brrrr.

I'm driving up to Red Boiling Springs and then to Granville to meet with a prospect and look at a lot. You gotta have a good stomach on some of these windy curvy roads!

Enjoy your weekend and stay warm and dry.

Friday already?

I pray you've had a good and productive week. A cold and rainy morning in Cookeville. Time to pull on the stocking caps.

The gang is on the loose

They're telling us cooler weather is coming through Friday - hey! I thought this was cooler weather already!!

Rachel took this Monday of the grand kids. I see the stone remembering Kairou as well. As I ponder on the love I have for my kids and grand kids, I realize the love God has for His own son and the love He has for us.

Kaireia got a camera for her birthday (thanks grandma Adams - I told her a big no - trust me).

Anyway, Neidon found out what the word paparazzi meant. This photo will look bad on the front cover of Time magazine.

Rock Island Park

Greetings on this cold and sunny Sunday morning! Yesterday we voted, gave blood, ran errands and went to Rock Island State Park. Can you see our leaves are falling! Fall is in the air up here in Tennessee.

Help me

Uncle Reed is helping out Kardia with her Princess project. I like this picture of them.

It's cold in Cookeville - brrrr. Have a great weekend.

Little Princess

Kardia had a great time at the party. She thought she was 5 years old too!

Have a great and blessed weekend! It's cold and overcast in Cookeville - it actually feels like Fall weather has arrived.

Love birds

I ran into these two love birds at the Princess Party. They look too happy for their own good.

They threw away their hopes and dreams of fixing their home to join in the frolic and festivities of the Princess Party.


Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Everyone got in the act

You can see the whole gang was at the party. It was funny how even Kardia walked up and sat down and thought she was one of the 5 year old Princesses. You can see her Uncle Reed helped her out with her craft - he is pretty crafty.

Balloons are fun

Not everyone came to the party as a Princess. There were a few Princes as well.

No balloon was safe but they sure had a fun time.

Neidon sure looked sharp.

We're back

We survived a Princess birthday party - I saw more pink than in my honeymoon suite 30+ years ago!

The Princess and her court are happy - long live the Princess!

Shake on it

My babies are having fun - we'll be having fun with them soon.

I'm loading extra photos as I probably won't be posting until we return. Have a great week and weekend - love you all!

Two more days.

We see the kids in a couple of days. Actually, I'm leaving work early tomorrow and we'll drive until late to get there.

Rain last night - the Cookeville weather guy says almost 3/4" so far and it is dark and dreary outside this morning. It looks great!

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

A cool front is coming - bundle up!

We're supposed to get rain and cooler weather before this week is over - we're ready! Leaves are turning, nights are cooler and it feels great when we walk every night.

I had a link to the Cookeville Weather Guy's site a few days ago (and here it is again). Michael Detwiler who runs this site is a great guy and has become a good friend. I prefer it over many 'commercial' bigger sites to see what is happening in the local weather. If you live local, I'd recommend saving the link.

Watch the debate tonight in Nashville!

Fall is in the air

Our days are running between 70 and 80 degrees and the evenings between 40 and 50 degrees - the leaves are beginning to turn as well. It's a beautiful season in Tennessee.

If you're happy and you know it raise your hands ...

If you want your grandma and grandpa Adams to visit next weekend, raise your hands!

Cindy and I went to Shakespeare in the park last night and saw Hamlet. It was 3.5 hours long and great - but long - and cold - brrrr.

A cool Saturday morning in Cookeville

A great morning to all my friends.

Rachel recently had professional photos taken of Kaireia - our baby is growing up! She looks a lot like her grandma Kleeman.

We drive up to Ohio late Thursday and spend a long weekend with them. Hooray!

There is fall in the air in Cookeville.

Friday, October 03, 2008

Friday already!!

Riders below and watchers above - all having fun.

Enjoy your Friday - I pray you've had a wonderful week.

Thursday, October 02, 2008

Stretch before you run

It was cold last night when we walked - brrrr! It got down to about 40 last night and only mid 60's today. We ain't in south Texas any more!

Debates tonight - go Palin!!

Our little mermaid

Is this Ariel, the mermaid in Disney's 'The Little Mermaid'?

It almost looks like Kaireia!

Kaireia is now a seamstress - in kraft paper, that is.

Only up to 70 degrees today here in Cookeville and they are projecting the 30's tonight - brrrr. Sometimes 'they' are wrong - we'll see.
