2015 Blue Jeans Week 43

What a week.  We survived strep throat with Mr J and luckily no one else got it, and I was soooo grateful about that because it is not fun.  Ben and my dad had birthdays, we had the last home football game which meant senior night and the band's last halftime performance.  Oh my.  Crazy!  All these senior year "lasts". . . so take a look at our week. . .
Sunday we celebrated by dad's birthday.  So love him and so grateful we live close to him!

At the Dr.'s office Monday morning where we got the diagnosis of strep throat for Mr J.  He thought it was kind of funny to wear a mask, but the poor kid this was the only time he smiled the whole day.  Not fun.  Thank heavens he was doing much better and able to go to school Wednesday.  

Ben got this shot of the kids enjoying their ribbon wands.  

And Happy Birthday to my amazing husband!  The best husband and dad ever!  Man are we lucky to have him!

Senior parents' night.  We got to escort Miss A across the football field as she represented cross country, band, and choir.  Sure love that girl and am proud of all she has done!

Her last time on the football field for half time as Drum Major.  

And Miss O is the one of the left doing her horn solo as part of the halftime show.  She did awesome!

Saturday night we made a bonfire and roasted hot dogs and had s'mores.  A great family Saturday night.

And as an added treat we had a Ben and Jerry's buffet.  Our favorite?  The pumpkin cheesecake.  Yum!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week! 


  1. I'm glad you made it through Miss A's Senior Night!
    Your Saturday night bonfire looks like so much fun!
    I LOVE doing ice cream buffets. I'll have to try the pumpkin cheesecake.
    Have a great week & HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  2. So glad Mr J is feeling better and did not share! The birthday celebrations look fun and yay for senior night. We had one too last week for polo. I can't believe it's almost over. Now a Ben & Jerry's buffet sounds amazing. I'm not sure my kids have ever tried them so we may have to do this.
