A Load of Pics . . .
A Lot of Plans . . .
And a Friday Impossible Question


Let's start off with some pictures from our very busy Thursday.

On the way to the Veteran's Day program at Delaney's school (don't you just love any pictures that involve toddlers and lollipops?) . . .



Last night was the 5th Grade Scholars Recognition across town. Out of the 80 or so 5th graders at Delaney's school, there were 13 recipients. So, of course, Gary and I were two Proud Parents last night. Delaney is just an outstanding student and we know she will go far academically! And she looked just so grown-up and pretty last night; I'm really starting to realize that she's not my little girl anymore.

Receiving her award . . .



Jaelyn and Delaney after the ceremony (are those two cutie girls or what? do you think Adrienne and I are going to have problems when the boys start coming around? ack!!) . . .



Delaney and Scotti (these girls are two peas in a pod! the other day at lunch, Delaney said they came up with 65 reasons they were alike! They call themselves Long Lost Twins! So cute!) . . .



Delaney and Proud Momma Me! I just love her bunches!! . . .



After the ceremony, I captured my dear Teenage Daughter and Teenage Niece staring blankly into the universe that is MySpace (is every teenager obsessed with this?? lol) . . .



The girls are out of school today, so the plans for this Friday include going to the Dollar Theatre to finally see "Pirates of the Caribbean 2." I know--we're probably the last people in the universe to see this movie, but better late than never.

Then tonight, Hueytown HS plays Huntsville HS in the first round of the state football playoffs. Go Gophers!!

Then tomorrow Delaney goes out of town for her last big softball tournament of the season. Go Thunderbolts!

And, look, even the Barbies in our house know that it's another college football weekend . . .



For the first time in three weeks I won't be going to Tuscaloosa for a game. But I will be cheering on the Tide Saturday night at 6:45. We have a very tough game against LSU and pretty much no one is giving us a chance to win that game, or next week's against Auburn. We are having a dismal season . . . but never say never!! (Please everyone out there in Blog World--even if you don't care a flying flip about football--say a nice little prayer or send some football mojo down our way. We need it! Roll Tide!) I'll also be watching my Texas Longhorns (that's who Barbie's rooting for there!) and the Arkansas Razorbacks.

And now--I forgot to do an Impossible Question last Friday, but I didn' t want to forget it this week. So, here it is . . .

* 10% of the world's population never does THIS common activity because it's not a part of their culture. What is it?

Give it your best shot and post your answer in my comments section. As soon as someone submits the right answer, I will update my post and let everyone know. And the winner? You will get a . . . well, you don't really get anything . . . but you have the respect and admiration of bloggers and blog-readers everywhere!

UPDATE--

Well, after 10 or so WRONG guesses, I told Delaney what the question was. She guessed a few, and then said that she thought she had the right answer. I told her to get online and post it and see if she could win. And she did!! Her guess--KISS--what the correct answer! Way to go D! (I told you she was smart!! LOL)

Also-- Hueytown High School won its football playoff game tonight. YAY!! It was an awesome game; lots of great defensive plays and some really exciting plays to win the game. We won 10-0 and we are headed to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in ages. Go Golden Gophers! (Gotta love that, huh?)

And--we didn't see "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" after all. We got to the theatre and when the previews came up it was upside down! They got it straightened out and it looked okay, then when the movie started there was Johnny Depp upside down too!! Ugh!! The manager--or the teenager who was running the screens this afternoon!--came in to try and fix it and ten minutes later said it was hopeless. The movie wouldn't be running! So, we could get our money back or pick out another movie. We were able to go see "Invincible," which I really wanted to see anyway! This is the movie about the Philadelphia Eagles and the "regular" guy that made the team with them back in the mid 70s (starring Mark Whalberg!) I love any movies that have to do with sports, so I was happy about that one! (And my two DDs and niece decided by the end of the movie that Whalberg was "hot"--I could have told them that! Ha!)

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Congrats to your daughter on her big award AWESOME! I want that sucker, will she share?

I have no guess yet, but I will be back with one I promise

Jane said...

Congrats to Delaney!!! You must be so proud. Love your new avatar. Great question and I will be back to see what the answer is, at the moment it is too early in the morning for me to think of an answer!!!

Ronalyn said...

Hey there! Oh was that Adriennes daughter? What you two are like neighbors? Hey that's not fair!!

Ah, the myspace thing.. I refuse to let my oldest, he is only nearing 11.. but his friends that are like 13 and 14 have one.. and well, they added me to their myspace.. and I said I would visit reguraly to "mother" their pages!

Hmm.. the question..

I will have to say..
Pray before eating, or before bedtime? Nah.. how about something more common like bathe often or using utensils.
My guess goes on something like a daily ritual.. that has to do with some kind of hygine? Oh gosh.. let me know!!

Adrienne said...

ACK! TOny said Jaelyn's not dating until she is 30!!! LOL..my dad tried that too, and I was married at 19! ROFLOL

Clara Wray said...

Delaney was so pretty and grown up. I'm so sorry, I forgot about last night.

I want to congratulate Delaney. I am so proud of her. Please tell her so! I am proud of her parents too!! I knew she was a Fifth Grade Scholars but didn’t know she would be honored. That’s great.
Love you all,
Mom

Jenn S said...

Cheryl Wray said...

beadinggalinMS said...

Congrats to Delaney!
I am happy my teens have no interest in Myspace.

To answer your question let me see I am going to say wash their hands after using the bathroom.

Have fun at the theater!!

Cindy Barb said...

What was the questions again? I was reading eveyones comments and forgot. Oh Yea!! I would say "Shake hands"

Amanda said...

Hey, so glad you liked the bars! I love trying new recipes and especially desserts! Oh, wait, maybe I ate those for breakfast...ahaha, GREAT pictures!!!

Memphis Steve said...

The photo of the kids staring into MySpace helps me better understand what it is about it that I don't like. I have an account there, but it just isn't the same as here. I always feel like I'm just visiting when I log on to MySpace.

NMOTB said...

Hello, I have just done a post on Ryan's awards he recieved at school today at the prize giving - So we have every reason to be proud! Congrats to D! Don't worry I have also not seen Pirates of the Carribean either! lol Well I am off to bed, just finished the cake (posted a pic). Have a super weekend and take care!

Delaney said...

I think it's Kissing

Andy said...

not to close. like 2 hours away. my sister is though and i remember the dollar theater when i was in college at the colonade. (maybe it's 2 L's ?) well it was acutally a dollar fifty movie place. anyways they closed it and i was just wondering if they ever reopened it.

Cheryl Wray said...

I am so proud of Delaney!! The pictures are great! Of Sydney too!! And, of course, Delaney is beautiful. Just like McKenna. I am going have to think about this question. I would say bathe or brush their toothies but I think it would be more than 10%, so I will keep on working my brain cells.

Cheryl Wray said...

Hey everyone! I was supposed to post that last message from my Mom, but I accidentally posted it by me instead of putting her name in it. Idget, that's me!!

BTW--Delaney got the answer right. It's kissing!!!

Robyn said...

That's so cool about Delaney and Adrienne's daughter too! Awesome achievment!

Regina said...

I was going to guess flossing, but ugh...Congrats on the academic success! How great to be so focused and accomplished at such a young age!

Regina said...

ps...my twins want myspace but I told them when they keep "theirspaces" clean we will consider...needless to say, there still is no myspace, LOL1

Jenn said...

Congrats!! Great accomplishment (for them and mom:) your girls are so pretty!!

Cheryl said...

Wow - lots going on! Your DD is smart AND cute! LOL. I LOVE your blue top you are wearing! I knew the kiss thing - heard it somewhere once.

Tawnya said...

Sounds like a very fun time! You sure do have a smart girl on your hands :) Great photos too!

Have a great weekend! :)

Dana said...

Congratulations!!! I guess this is the week to be proud of our girls...LOL. Yes, the boys will be hanging around the girls big time...LOL. In answer to your question, my teenage son is totally obsessed with MYSPACE AND TAGGED! I tell him all the time his brain is going to turn into mush from all the waves of the computer. He lives on Myspace...LOL

Miss 1999 said...

Hi Cheryl! I am sorry I missed the guessing game...but I had no clue anyway. Delaney is quite smart indeed! This was a fun question!
Congratulations on your daughter's scholar recognition....wow! So cool indeed. You are right to be so proud :) Go D!

susan j said...

I haven't seen Pirates 2 yet either!!! So you aren't alone. LOVE the pics of your girls and also the one with Adrienne's girl. Congrats too!!!

Renee said...

Just getting around to catching up with everyone's blogs. Congratulations to Delaney; I know y'all are so proud of her.
And sorry to say, but 'Go Tigers!'

Theresa Tyree said...

There's so much I want to say.
First, "Hook 'em Horns"!! If you're a football fan or from Texas, you know what that means.

Second, I was going to guess "brush teeth", which was close to the correct answer of Kiss.

Congratulations to Delaney! You should be so proud of her!

You missed out on not seeing the Pirates movie. Johnny Depp is SO HOT!!!!! Uuurrrggghhhh! I feel like a teenager again!

I need to run my hubby on the celeb face thingey. I've been told he looks like Mark Wahlberg with red hair. Yummy...!!!
