Family Stuff and An Award

My Dad turned 75 on November 20. We had a little get-together for him, and I think he really enjoyed himself.
There are 5 of us kids, and when all the kids, spouses, grandkids and grandkids's spouses, and great grandchildren get together, there's a big enough group to have a nice party. Below is my niece, Bethany (center), and my daughter, LesLee (right) with my Dad:
My grandson, Ashton. He has a knot on his noggin. Believe it or not, it looks a whole lot better than when he first got it. His face is also scratched a little, from a difference incident. I'd tell you that his little 2 year old sister pushed him into the wall and put that knot there, but that might embarass him to let you know that his little sister "beat him up." So I won't tell you that.
My lovely mother, who has been quite sick lately (but she's feeling better now) and my oldest brother, Ken. Roll Tide!!!!

That birthday cake sure was good! Just ask Bethany's son, Alex.

Dad carving the Thanksgiving Turkey.

Baby Adam....isn't he just the cutest? He smiles all the time.
He's just such a precious little thing:

My beloved UNA Lions have advanced to the final four...the semi-finals...for the NCAA Division II Football Championship. Roar, Bay-bee, ROAR!!
And of course, Bama is playing the in the championship game against Florida....and I think we'll win! Rollllll Tide!

Three of my Bloggin' friends honored me with an Award recently....I've been so busy with the last leg of the semester that I am just now saying a heartfelt "Thank You" to Hollie, Julie, and Linda for thinking enough of what I ramble on about to give me a "Real People" award.
