Weekend Update - Basketball Christmas Cards

Welcome to Monday!  The big news around the town...Son made the 8th grade Basketball Team!  He said that the coach told him that if he worked hard through the practices, he would probably start the 3rd game and beyond.  Well, we will see.  But we are proud of him.  Now the work begins.  He has practice or a game Monday through Saturdays from now until the middle of February.  Foxy and I thank my parents for helping us get Timm to practices this month.  They are from 5 pm to 7 pm every week night this month.  They will take him when Foxy is working, which is every day this week!  Bless his heart.

So after he made the team, we went out and purchased him some clothes to practice in.  We also purchased him black socks that go up the calf because that is what they wear.  When we got home, he took his purchases and we put them in the dryer first.  Then he took them to his room and came out with new shorts and socks on.  He asked me "Are people really that dumb?"  I asked him what he was talking about.  He said "This." and showed me a pair of socks.

Right or Left?       

He wants to know why people need to be told which foot to put a sock on?  Of course, this is coming from the boy who will wear the same pair of socks for four days!  I know...Gross!  But really, this puzzles him.

Also on Saturday, Daughter and I went and did a little shopping.  She really wanted a new Vera Bradley wristlet, so she got one, purchased with her own money.  She also bought a Vera Bradley photo album to put her Homecoming pictures in.  It was half price.  She is such a great shopper. 

While we were out I saw this odd looking, but beautiful flower.  Do you know what it is?

 On Sunday, after church, Daughter and I did a mother/daughter afternoon.  We went to a friend's and made Christmas cards.  I'll put them on here soon.  It is such a good time for us to spend together.

Tonight is Dancing With the Stars, so I'll PINT you all tomorrow.  Have a great day!
