Rayne Driving

I let Rayne drive home from church today. Actually he drove home from the bank after we went to the store after church today. He has got to practice. Hopefully he can go take the written part of his driving test next Monday. We have to get his grades and attendance reports from school first or we would have gone over Thanksgiving break.
When I was a kid you could check out from school walk to the police station across town and take the test. These days it's a major ordeal. Oh, well it should be.

Paris's Christmas Parade

Yesterday was Paris's Christmas parade. We all met at Rogerland and then went out to watch the parade. Kim didn't get to come this year and Jeffery was in Virginia visiting Kelly so he didn't get to come either. Here is who did make it : me, Lex, Rayne, Rance, Sissie, Rod, Leigh, Katie, Neal, Christina, and their 3 kids, Mary, Butch, David, Brittany, Daniel, Nikki, Ethan, Daddy, and Connie was working her butt off they were so busy. We all had a good time visiting. Well I did anyway.

Thanksgiving 2009

Today was the best Thanksgiving, except for missing Poppa, that I can remember. Maybe because it wasn't so crowded. It was me, Lex and the boys, Gram, Memaw, and Pappy. We had a nice dinner and a nice relaxing afternoon. When I got tired around 4, we came home.
We spent the afternoon going through Ma Nichols' Bible. She had a lot of newspaper clippings in it and she had written births, deaths, and marriages in it. I had taken a family tree chart and was able to fill it out through Ma Nichols' all the way through to her parents. We found a copy of her birth certificate in a box of papers that Pop had kept.
I had been worried earlier that I would get sad and cry while at Gram's, but the Lord really gave me strength, and I had a blessed day for which I am very thankful.

Addilynn Presly Bogan

Addi is finally here. She was born on Sunday, November 8th at 11:08 a.m. She is perfect!!
Poor Brittany had a rough night Saturday. The nurses kept telling her she wasn't in labor, and she was hurting really badly. She was throwing up from the pain. She didn't get any help until the day shift came on around 8:00 and then Addilynn was born 3 hours later.
I would like to have a word or two with the night nurses!!!!
Bud took good care of Brittany during all this. He is a good husband!!
