One of the Handsome fellas in my life

As y'all know my brother is gettin' married. So we took Wesley to be fitted for his tux. He is the cutest little guy. He picked out what he wanted too. Desiree said it was ok for him to have his tux the way he wanted. So his tux will have the little hanky in the pocket and his flower on his lapel. Wesley wanted to look just like the display they had. I cant wait to see'em allll dressed up. Here are a few pics.

He is sooo cute, and just because he's mine either. LOL

Annual Harvest Festival

We had our annual Harvest Festival this weekend at our church. It has been one busy weekend. Our church has done this festival for over 50 years now. My Daddy remembers helping out when he was a kid. So we have been doing this for some time now.

I can remember waiting to turn 10 years old so I could stay and help with the stirring and serving the sodas and taking food orders. Now they just let them all in the kitchen, which I dont like cause little kids could really get hurt back there. Lots of HOT food and liquids. But oh well no one got hurt so that's a plus.

The cookin started on Thursday, with the cookin of the B-B-Q. Let me tell ya, this is the best B-B-Q you will ever eat. Thursday evening was time to chop. I dont really like this job, but you can get alot of your frustrations out on that poor pig. LOL.

Friday night we had lots to do that night. Peelin potatoes, onions. Not fun jobs either, but we made it through. People just dont know the work that goes into these kind of events. We made 300 gallons of stew. And Im not sure how many pounds of potatoes and onions there are, I just know that there are too many. LOL

Here are some of the potato peelers.

Here is Karen and Peggy washing and eyeing the potatoes

I stayed until about midnight on Saturday morning then had to be back at the church by 9 am to get things going there. I am the french fryer. LOL. Handed down from my Nannie. She made french fries for years. So she finally passed it on to her daugther and myself. Saturday was just a day of good fellowship and eating. I didnt get any pics of Saturday, I was gettin' my deep oil treatment and suntan from the hot lamps that we keep the fries warm with. LOL. But here a few pics I snapped on Friday night.

Ronnie and myself were on this pot. I snapped a pic of him and the other guy there is Jackie.

Here is my son Josh. He's workin hard. Can you tell what he's workin hard at??? TALKIN' LOL

This is my Nannie, she is busy workin' on the craft table.

Here are the money takers. That's my aunt Kay and Mr. Powell and Jack

We had a pretty good day. Thank y'all for takin a peek.

Im just about all showered out!!

I decided I should make a post since it has been a few weeks since my last one. I have been runnin and runnin. Since the first shower for my future SIL, I have been to one more which was at my brother's house. This coming weekend I have a my craftshow, my cousins wedding, another shower for my future SIL, a baby shower on Sunday. Boy I tell ya, I will just be glad when it's all behind us. Not to mention all the other day to day tasks I have been trying to do along the way. AWANA has started back and that's an every Sunday meeting. Im pooped!!!! Just thinking about it.

I thought maybe y'all would like to see a pic of my baby brother and his future wife to be. I know I have posted some in the last post, but I wanted to post this pic. It is of the of them at their freinds wedding from last year. So here they are the future Mr.& Mrs. Timothy W. Strader

They just had their engagement pictures made. I need to see if Desiree will let me add on of those here. They were wonderful pictures. I have to say that just love Desiree. She's good for my brother. Desiree is a very soft spoken, sweet and caring young woman. I am happy she will become part of our family. Oh and my boys just love'er too. That means alot too.

Well, I hope everyone of you are having a great week so far. I hope to get back to posting after things settle down a bit here. So hope you all have a great day. Until next time. Tammy
