All this said, I am not a reunion type of gal. As one person said from my high school class--those who love reunions...say a lot, " Back in the good ole days..." I say----I like my life now. I love my family, my kids, my hubby, my life--NOW, not how it used to be back in high school. So, when high school reunions come around, unless I am dragged or persuaded, I will probably not be seen there at my own. We did go to John's and had a great time though.
College reunions, well, that's another story! My group of friends from IV are still by far some of the greatest friends John and I have met. So, when IV had a reunion, we went! A&M had to be visited when we went there. John is a history buff and could inform all our kids what things meant, when they were built and all the good info that goes into Aggie tradition! Melissa has started watching Aggie football games with dad too. She is leaning the most toward Aggieland. Katie took these pics above and can't wait to go to vet school at A&M!

We needed a dresser for the girls, so I went to a resale shop here in town. The owner is an amazing talented young lady and I just picked her brain!! She had this dresser(it was a plain off white wood dresser.) and told me about her idea for modge podging scrapbook papers on the drawers, so I looked it up and tried my hand at it. I love how it turned out. Yes, I know my own mistakes on the dresser and I am hoping it holds up over time(the design, not the dresser!) My oldest helped me pick out the papers that I used for each drawer! Unfortunately, I don't have a before picture---bummer!

Clue 1: Go South to a place of Sparks!(Mark--our son, goes by this nickname at times) You will find Clue #2 under the place where your bottom moves the fastest!(the boys have a slide on their bunkbed)
Clue 2: Going on a trip? You will find Clue #3 if you are packing(there are suitcases from our unpacking in the living room)
Clue 3: Go East where the Sun rises(our sunroom) Be careful for the 4th clue may be under your bottom...(it was in the couch)
Clue 4: I-I-I would tell you where the Clue #5 is but he is so cold, I don't want to visit(in our freezer).
Clue 5: Your last Clue. If you follow your heart, it will lead you back to the start. (to the fort).
Enjoy, Love Dad.
I went to a ladies meeting this night and the kids told me about it in the morning. This is my husband! Genius! No tv--just fun with Dad. Thank you Lord for a great hubby!
