Little Brother

So I got to spend some time with my little brother Friday night. He is in town for a few days before he starts back taking classes at University of Kentucky. We got to talk while he did a little work on my computer. He is so talented and smart, and it just comes natural to him. I wish I had gotten a little of his smartness HA! Anyway we had fun, even though he is 10 years younger than me. It seems the older we get the more things in common we can find to chat about. Soooo thanks to Patrick and I enjoyed your company. See ya before you go back to school----Love Ya!

Day at the Lake

Fun on the tube!!

Can you say BOATDRIVER???

Friends Forever!!!!
Just call me SHARK BOY!!!!!

Jimmy and I have always loved boating and enjoying our local lake or any lake for that matter. Jimmy has had his/our boat for twenty years now and me for eighteen.(I think he is more attached to the boat HA! ) We have not gotten to enjoy the lake as much since we started having kids, but we are now finding that it is getting a little easier as the kids are getting older. This summer has been great and it has been so nice to hang out with friends and let the kids swim, tube, and play. Also packing up a little lunch with the help of the in-laws has been great also. So while we are waiting for the weekend lake trip to come around again, I thought I would look back on this last weekend fun!!!!ENJOY!!!!

First Week of Preschool

Well here is "little man" on the first day of preschool! He has enjoyed the first week and seems so grown up to me! He makes me laugh everyday--he has been calling his teacher just by her last name "Smith" instead of putting Mrs. in front of it! It is funny to hear this---He'll say "I like Smith" or "I am going to see Smith at preschool" and "If you raise your hand Smith says you can go to the bathroom." I am so glad to know it is going to be a good year with Smith!

Why didn't I think of this??

This is the best idea for renting movies! Over a year ago a "REDbox" was placed in our area. Our party of five has utilized this many times! We love to have what we call Friday night pizza and movies during the school year! Since school started this week, we are trying to get back into our weekly routines. This week we have rented "Confessions Of A Shopaholic" and my kids and I really enjoyed it. Are you using "REDbox" in your area, and why didn't we think of this before now???

Back to School

  Today my daughters went back to school and I went back to work! We have had a great summer and I will try to post a summary later.  They were so excited to start back to school :)  Sarah is in the 4th grade and Andrea in the 1st.  Nate will begin preschool next week.  We will have to see how getting this "Party of Five" ready every morning is going to be.  I have learned over the years it helps to prepare everything the night before--WISH US LUCK!!

I have finally got the courage to start blogging! I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother of 3 trying to figure out my place in this big world! My name is Leigh Ann, but many years ago around 1970 something, my older sister gave me a nickname that has stuck. Everyone who knows me well calls me Buffy:) ! This came after my sister's favorite show "A Family Affair"--one of the characters was a little girl named Buffy.

I have been following blogs for over 2 years now! I love Kelly's Korner, Lots of Scotts, Boomama, Big Mama, and Lamberts Lately to name a few. I am wanting to blog mainly because I have tried scrapbooking and haven't had the time to keep that hobby up, so I thought this might be an easier way to keep up our memories. Another reason is for family/friends that are out of town to keep up with our busy life. I look forward to starting this new hobby and hope you will enjoy keeping up with the "Party of Five!"
