Praying for Paris

Paris Attacks

At least 130 people were killed in Paris on Nov. 13. They included an architect, an American college student, an Algerian violinist and many, many music fans. 

This was Europe's worst terrorist attack in 11 years.

Cities across the world lit up their skies in memory of the victims. 

As I decorated our Christmas tree, I came across this ornament.  I thought about the amazing time we had there several years ago. 

This is the ring leader of the attacks.

All sorts of fake threats starting popping up all over the place. One even surfaced in our town. CRAZY

As we are headed to New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, my family is all a little on edge. The security is all over t.v. There is just no way to stop these attacks when someone is willing to sacrifice their life. We did come up with an emergency plan just in case something happened and we didn't have cell phone signals.

Faith in our Future...

This quote just jumped out at me this week from someone's social media page (I can't remember who's page). 

I never have been good at waving the white flag but the older my kids get,the busier our lives are, the easier it is getting for me to accept that "this is our fast paced life for now" and I need to embrace it, savor it and hold on tight.

If not, it will be a "what was" real fast. 

It's the "have faith in what will be" that I struggle with... I have "faith" ...but it's the "what will be" that gets me...I'm such a I'm working on that last line...

Tigers...for the day!

Science Club visited the University of Memphis...

Juvenile Deer Hunt

Opening weekend of deer season for juveniles started out with a bang! Abby and Judson went together and Oney and I went together. We should have cut more corn rows because that field could have been full of deer and we would have never seen them.

When Oney and I are not killing deer, we are making crazy faces and taking selfies with each other. 

He got him a double doe

These two sillies only got bonding time and a million selfies and snapchats! 

This popped up on my time hop this week...this was the first year we started hunting as a family. WOW! Time flies by so fast! 

Sanderson Farms Championship

The Sanderson trips always start out at 110 miles per hour. I wasn't feeling 100% as I was packing for the trip. I have been working so many hours and had a little more stress on me than normal so I just attributed my yucky feelings to trying to get out of town. We got into Jackson and headed straight to dinner. I ate the Gulf Redfish which was delicious. We had a blast of course and drank some fine wine. 

We went back to the hotel and hung out at the "Chicken Coup" aka the hospitality suite until the wee hours. I was up most of the night with stomach issues. Yuck. Obviously, I had a little virus working on me when I left home. I forced myself to get ready and make it to the women's luncheon because I did not want to miss it. 

The speaker this year...Jenna Bush Hager...I was dying to hear her. I heard her speak at a National Grocer's Convention in Vegas a few years ago and she was wonderful. I made it through lunch and boy was I glad. She did an outstanding job. She was so "real". She speaks with so much emotion and is so candid. I really really enjoyed it. 

Visiting Children's Hospital and reading to the children. 

I managed to catch a ride back to Memphis and Abby picked me up. I thought I would die before I got out of that car-I was soon nauseated! I threw up the minute I walked in the house! UGH! 

In the meantime, I am getting constant texts/pics of Judson and the "crew" telling me how much they miss me and to prepare for Mardi Gras! 

This was me...and ONEY...he had the same stomach bug!
