They're heading to New Orleans and the SuperDome to watch the Steelers play the Saints. They're going to be in a private box and participate in what is being called "the World's Largest Costume Party." Guinness is going to be there to confirm it. I know they're going to have a great time.
My friend, Darlene, took today's picture of MK and her friend, TB, in Alabama yesterday.

MK is in Alabama at her competition, so I don't have any pictures of her, but here are a couple of T. Willy. We went to a Fall Festival in town this evening, so there is a picture of him in his Halloween costume. After the festival we went to dinner, so here is a picture of him showing how much he enjoys having his dad home.
MK is away with the band for an all day trip to Alabama. They're going to be in a band competition, and it should be a fun day. We got her some snacks and she took a blanket, so she should be set. They're on charter buses instead of school buses, so that should make it a nice trip.

I am posting this picture, because I really liked the interior of the office. It wasn't a typical doctor's office in our little town.

My birthday is tomorrow. Since the Big Man is home but leaving early in the morning, we celebrated my birthday today. One of my gifts was a huge surprise, and it showed that he listened to me.
The story was this: one of my students wore a shirt recently that I loved. It's from American Eagle, and it says across it TMAE - trademark American Eagle. But the reason I liked it is that it's also our family's first initials - Ty Maddie Erik Annette (hence the name of the blog - teamgeb.)
So he found a hoodie for me with that on it. It's great!
This is where it gets strange. I enjoy numbers, and work out different ways our birthdays add up. It works, but it's not something everyone enjoys.
On my shirt is a 54. It took me just a minute to figure it out, but I did. All of our birthdays plus our anniversary equal 54. Weird, huh? (5+2+25+5+17=54.) The Big Man said he could sit in a room for 100 years with that shirt and never come up with that. I guess its just one of those things that makes me - me.

After the band competition, we stopped to get something to eat. MK and her friends sat together, and I sat with T. Willy.
He mentioned that when he was in my tummy we were able to get pictures of him. I agreed that we did. He asked, "How could they tell I was a boy?"
I'm a believer in answering their questions with simple truth, so I told him that they could see his boy parts.
He then said, "Yeah, 'cause boys have shorter hair than girls."

I was able to do something this morning that I rarely do but enjoy: I was able to watch T. Willy get on the bus. So today's pictures are of the kids: one of the last shots of MK with her braces and T. Willy waiting for the bus.

There was a football game tonight, and that was great because the Big Man was able to go and see MK perform. T. Willy was patient, because he knew he could leave after halftime. Too bad they left, though, because it turned into a nail biter. It went into double overtime, and we won!!!
MK is usually starving after games, and we started a tradition of stopping at Whataburger on our way home. So the guys joined us there. There were a lot of excited Bulldog fans in there tonight.
The pictures are of MK. She was just being funny and posing, and then a bug flew onto our table. You should be able to tell at which point that happened. She was so proud of herself for taking care of it.

If you've read this for awhile, you'll know that my favorite restaurant is the Cheesecake Factory. We don't have one nearby, so I visit them when we travel. Since we go so rarely, I ALWAYS get the same thing: Thai Lettuce Wraps and Key Lime cheesecake...always. So the Big Man sent a Key Lime cheesecake to me!!!

However, it made for another long day, so I'm going to bed. Good night!

I'm sitting on the front porch glider enjoying the beautiful weather in the few minutes I have to do nothing. MK just left for guard practice, and T. Willy is playing a bit before dinner. There is an actual breeze and it's, I'm thrilled to say, cool outside.
I took today's pictures while stopped at a red light on our way home this afternoon. We got a big kick out of the dog on the left.

I also get a day off tomorrow, of sorts. Reading teachers in our county are meeting for a workshop. They are having an author in, and we were told to bring notebooks for writing. I'm eager to see how it goes. It's not completely a day off, though, because when it's over, I will head back to the school for play rehearsal. It's fun, but there is no free time these days!
