I'm so proud of my mom & dad, and would tell you more about my Mom, but this is Dad's day, and dads are overlooked too often! I'm lucky to live within 2 miles of them--they have been able to enjoy watching their grandchildren (4), and now their great grandson grow up. So Happy Birthday to Dad!!! We actually celebrated his birthday (along with 2 other family members who'll I introduce on their birthdays!) last Saturday night. But, I wanted to mention him!!

On Saturday, my sis, daughter, niece & Hank, went shopping ALL DAY LONG!
Hank has taken a liking to wearing hats, and we found this raccoon hat--he just would not take it off---guess what Ya Ya did????? He now has it!!!
Then we found a darling black felt cowboy hat, which he loved, (my pics didn't turn out--will have to wait on how cute he was in that!!), and guess what Ya Ya did?????
Hank has two hats!!!
Now, as I have mentioned, we get really, REALLY silly when the four of us gals are together. Well, the three of us--daughter is so very composed & reserved that we tend to embarrass her!!! But it doesn't stop us--we took to trying on hats too.
This is my darling niece, Kelsi, who is in her second year of college, and she found a hat that is so NOT HER!!! She was upset cause she was on her way to work, and didn't have all her make up on, but I think she looks cute!!! Told her this would be a great hat to wear to one of her sorority functions!!!
When we returned home from shopping, we had 30 minutes to make it to Mom's for November birthday dinner. Had a great meal of chicken enchiladas, chocolate meringue pie, salad, green beans, corn, chips & salsa. Yes, I made the pie & enchiladas---got up early on Sat to get them finished before shopping. Needless to say, I was pooped when we arrived home last night. But, I'd rather go to bed worn completely out from spending time with family than be rested and lonesome!!!
These are some pics I took around the neighborhood today. Aren't the colors pretty? If I had taken the pics last Friday, as planned, you could have seen the flame red maples that took my breath, but the wind blew through yesterday and the flame red leaves are all way to the north!!! Maybe they are in Kansas by now!!!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons--and I love winter. The colors this time of year are so rich and warm.
I'm still a bit pooped friends, so I'm signing off to watch Desparate Housewives!! Later!!!
