Some random thoughts...

1) My cousin David is engaged! YEAH!! He is going to marry an adorable girl that the whole family just adores...Sherry. No details yet on a wedding date...but nothing big is expected. We saw "the ring" last night at his big dinner party and WOW! You did good, Dave! Wonder who in the family will be next? Hum.......

2) UK beat LSU! HOLY COW!! The Bluegrass was rocking Saturday night! Its a BIG DEAL to beat the No. 1 team in the country and not because it was "luck" or a "fluke," but because we are REALLY THAT GOOD this year! Bring on Florida! We are GOING to that game...with both girls in tow, so that should be a real experience...but should also produce some excellent Kodak moments! Does anyone have any good ideas on how to keep an 18 month old "contained" at the tailgate party???

3) We went to Murray State Homecoming on Saturday. I'm not entirely sure why we keep going. Everytime one or both of us come home mad. The fraternity just ISN'T the same anymore and its not going to change just for a Homecoming event. A few other things were very apparent to us this year, need to divulge details at this time...or anytime. Hence, I don't think either of us would be "sad" to miss any more MSU Homecomings. I'd rather go to the Ham Festival, apple orchard or the pumpkin patch....or something else to make fun fall memories with my kids. While I do want my girls to know I graduated from MSU and I'm proud of the education I got there, I'm just not sure attending a Homecoming parade and Tent City for 30 minutes is the way to let them know about their parents' college background. With as much as we do AT UK in Lexington and the games on TV, etc....I think they think we went to UK. We hardly ever talk about MSU...we don't watch their sports games (IF there are even on TV). Given a UK event or a MSU event, we're going to chose the UK event, hands down, each time, because, well...its much more fun! Kinda sad, huh? I don't know why our loyalties never remained true to The Racers? Don't get me wrong, I'm PROUD to be a Racer alumni, but when it comes to school spirt, its all about THE WILDCATS! I guess its because in this state, its all about the BIG BLUE from the moment you are born, regardless of where you eventually end up for college. (and how crazy is this...sometimes I tend to show my "2nd" loyatly to Alabama, even though I only went there for a year and it was a BAD experience...strange how that works out.)

4) Nothing new to report on Beth or Sarah - both are good and healthy....although a tad cranky. Sarah is cutting her "canine" or "eye" teeth. Beth is just tired, I think. I'm going to spend the week trying to get everyone in bed early or ON TIME at least, so we'll all be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the big upcoming weekend in Lexington!
