GI John's Homecoming BBQ...

We had a Homecoming BBQ for John...

As you know, Rosco's Dad is home on R&R Leave from Iraq...

Rosco thinks R&R means Rosco Rocks...

Here's MY Dad giving John some BBQ'ing Tips...
My Dad is acting as the Official Taste Tester...
Rosco is overseeing the operation in case there are any rejects...

I always clean up after dinner...Just looking for debris...
Rosco looks thirsty from all the Tug-O-War...
I'm just enjoying the celebration...& waiting for Hand Outs...If you know what I mean...
John & the boys checking out John's new Bike...
That's my sister, Chrissy (Rosco's Mom) talking to my Cousins, Jordan, Emmie, & Jenny...
Here's Jeff bringing JJ back from the backyard...Not sure what the emergency is, but if you look at Jeff's face, it may not smell very good...
This is John's Mom with a new little guy we just met that day...
His name is Gavin...He's John's Cousin's Son...
I love the kids...
I REALLY love the kids...
They are playing with my big purple ball...
I don't mind...They are having sooo much fun...

************************************************************************

Oh...& my good friend, Happy gave me this Friendship Award...

Thank You, Happy!!!

I pass it on to any of my friends that don't already have it... & also those that do...

I love you all...

What a great BBQ! I don't really like kids. I'm not mean to them, I'm scared of them! I think it's great that you love kids though! What a nice purple ball, looks like a lot of fun!

Hi, Abby -

We know what you mean about Blogger. Mama had some trouble this morning posting some comments. They would not post at all.

It looks like all of you had a good time at the BBQ. Isn't it nice when the whole family can get together?

Love -

I don't like kids much. They are a bit loud and jumpy for me. You have a lovely family.
