Our Nation's FLAG

Chris flys the flag daily.
And the storms lately have taken
a toll of his flag.
But everytime he went to buy one it
was made in China.
So...he never got one.
But one day in Dollar General
I looked down to see a display
of flags....
ALL made in the USA!
I picked one up for Chris.

Now don't that look so much better?


My heart lights up with pride when
I view flags flying.
These poles are the flags outside
my work building.
USA flag

And of course both the USA and the
State flag flying above the
State Capital
in Nashville.

My Boys

My boys-
my grandson's!
Caleb just turned 14....yes
he has the teen attitude.
I guess we all did at that age.
He is my go with the flow grandson.
He takes life as it is and he just goes with
it unless of course it is something he wants
then he will argue with you.
Caleb in general is easy going but like
all teens he wants to do what he wants to do.
He is very smart but like his mom was, he don't
always use those smarts. He is funny and
to this day, a nana's boy. His eyes will light
up when he is happy or when he laughs.
DJ is my middle grandson. He is my frowner.
He don't smile often.
He has never been a hugging and kissing
sort of boy. He has always been a momma's
boy. He likes to have his way with the younger
child but finds that Braden will not stand
for it. DJ has really come out of his
shell since he started school last yr in
pre school. He is very smart and loves
to do his homework.

Then there is this child!
He is the lover. He very free with his
hugs and kisses!
He stands up for himself.
And he goes full force into anything.
He is not afraid of anything at all.
He smiles all the time.

All three are so different. They have their
own personalities for sure.
But Nana loves them all.
Thanks for dropping in,

Halloween Outfits Through The Years

I am so like a kid at Halloween!
I love Halloween!
And even more
I love to dress up
for Halloween!
Years and years ago my friend Julie's mom had
a Halloween Party.
I went as Dolly!
I really should have been a bit
heavier with the makeup.
I love Dolly too.
Then my friend Barb and I had a Halloween
party when the kids were young.
I went all Witchy that year!

Working for the state of Tennessee in
(see the state seal?)
I was a gyspy.

Also once with the State (sitll in printing) I became
all Witchy again!

But my favorite outfit has always
been a clown.

Still with the state (my whole life),
But no longer with Printing,
with the TBI in Medicaid
Back to the standard outfit.
And yet...another year with Medicaid.

Then last year in another unit with
The TBI...
the group was from the Menion
Yes, that is me in the pink shirt!
This year....
I will be dressing up for my last year
as a state of Tn employee.
I have put in 32 years so now
it is time (I think it is anyway)
to move on.
I will actually be dressing on Halloween,
a Friday and coming to work in
one outfit but
the next day I will
be attending a party
and I will be dressing in another
Will post pics later.
Thanks for stopping in,

Adorable Photo Shoot - Kelley's Grandkids at Pumpkin Hill

Kelley, my hairstylist hired me
to photograph her
grandchildren at Pumpkin
Hill outside of Nashville.
I had so much fun. I have never
photographed four children under
the age of four before and
did not really know how well they
would do..
they were GREAT!
This is Cannon on the left, Harley in the
middle and Kyler on the right.
Yes, Kyler was a mess...I loved it.

Kyler on the tractor!

The woman is Kyler and Harley's mom.
The man is Cannon's dad.
They are a couple
and that is their children.

The blonde girl added to this
pic is Kylee.

Brother and sis.

Bad to the ham again!

I asked them to give me a funny face!

Kelley in the center and her two daughters.

Daughter and her boyfriend.

Kelley and hubby.

We took pics and then took a ride
on a hayride.
On the way back to the barn it
was feeding time for the cows.
A truck was headed out to feed them and
they knew where they needed to be.
Except this one. He moved off away from the group
and started following the back on the
trailer we were on.

It was a nice day. I had a blast with Kelley
and her family. The kids were great.
I also wish to add that while in the process
of getting of the trailer floor to get off
little Ms. Harley came and grabbed my arm
and said, "I will help you up"!
