Friday night after the game Kyle proposed to Taylor and she said yes! We have a new engagement in the family and couldn't be happier for them both. I even got to be in on the secret and play an important role for Kyle. Since he was coaching he of course couldn't just leave the game, so he enlisted Mom to go to his car unnoticed right before the end and grab the ring case out of the glove box and the long stem rose out of a cooler in the trunk. I was pretty sneaky apparently because Taylor didn't even notice that I left. Of course I stayed away from her somewhat on purpose so I wouldn't open my mouth and let something slip to give it away. Kyle looked over to me right after the game ended and I shook my head "yes" to let him know I didn't let him down. He grabbed Tyler and Taylor's brother off the field and said "follow me". Then he just dropped to a knee and proposed. I didn't have time to recruit a friend to take some pictures so I handed it off to DIL Ashley to try and snap a few. We didn't get too many on my camera but there are some nice ones others took on FB. I will try to collect and make a collage of some of those when I get time. Congratulations Taylor and Kyle. You two have been together six years so I think it is safe to say that you will have a long and happy life together. Love you two!

My pictures aren't near as close or good as Sharon's but here are a few that were on my camera when I uploaded pictures from Homecoming. Everytime I walk out there to zoom in closer they take off. Yesterday afternoon there were three of them zooming around and chasing each other. I could watch them all day. They are so cool! Sad to say that it won't be long and they will be gone again until next year. Hello fall weather that I am not ready for. Have a great hump day!

Here are a few pictures from Homecoming night 2012 at the WV high school and at home. Ty was a king candidate which he didn't tell me for almost a week because it is no big deal. Well he is right but I think it is an honor when your peers pick you for something like that. Sherman won king and Dani was queen and that is who Ty wanted and said would get it. This whole senior class are great people. I cannot believe Ty is a senior. What will we do with ourselves next year? Get another hobby I guess, or catch up on those that I am way behind on. Like the brand new sewing machine Bruce got me for Christmas that I have not touched. Or the scrapbooking that I am 2+ years behind on. Yes I realize he graduates this year. Missy thank God is going to help me with some pages before graduation. I think once the boating season is over I can get caught up on some of those things. Wapsie had a great game again and won their homecoming. Ty had 3 touchdowns this week but one was called back. I guess you can't have 5 and throw another every game. Great job football team and may the rest of our season be successful. Love watching the sportsmanship that our boys have on the field. Other parents and coaches do notice and you should be commended for it. You are a great group of kids!

Got to spend a lot of time with this sweet little girl today at our house. And yes that is a tomato she is chomping on that she picked from the garden. And yes it did make a mess on the carpet but cleaned up just fine. Don't you love Ava smelling the mum flowers? Too sweet. Loved her trike even though she is a little too small yet for it. And loved Grandpa Bruce letting her "ride" on the tractor and starting it. She really likes uncle Ty's rocking chair that Grandma Shirley painted for him when he was little. It had to come down from the attic for Ava. I think she just might be the next Picasso. Just look at the artwork she did today with her Momma. We love this girl to the moon and back. So enjoyed the day with you Ava and your Momma too!
