Oh, well, at least I remembered to pick up a jacket. Maybe I can use it to cover my feet later!

She was given to the beau's father...who happens to run a feed store. Belle's previous family was moving and could not take her along. Now, lest you think this is an odd gift to give to the girl you just started dating (I know you are thinking that right now!) it really stole her heart. You see, Bri has been asking for a goat since we first announced we were buying property. She talked her dad into agreeing to a fainting goat for her birthday. She did all the research and then decided that although the fainting variety were hilarious to watch on video, she would rather have a smaller breed. Long story short...we now have 'Belle'.
Notice that I keep typing 'Belle' with single quotations around the name. That is because we do not call her 'Belle', we call her Goat. If I am feeling sorry for her, I call her Missy Goat. (I hope she doesn't turn out like Grandma J's Missy Coon...that thing would eat you alive!) There are two reasons that we don't call her by her given name. First, I have a friend who has a goat named 'Belle' and it just seems like cheating when you only know two goats and they both have the same name. Secondly, she just doesn't look like a 'Belle'!
I think it would be fun to see what you would name her. So, take another look at her picture and post a name suggestion in the comments section. Let's see who can NAME THAT GOAT!

Byrum kicks another winner for Auburn
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Wes Byrum kicked his second game-winning field goal in three weeks, this one from 20 yards with 21 seconds remaining to give No. 22 Auburn a 9-7 victory over Arkansas on Saturday night.
My congratulations go out to my Auburn friend, (you know who you are)...but I must say the last 1:28 in the game broke my heart. Last year the Razorbacks were the unofficial 'Alabama state champions' having beaten both Auburn and Alabama...this year: 0-4 in the SEC. I sure hope we have a chance next week against Ole Miss!
Let's go Hogs!

- The temperature has dropped below 60 for two nights in a row.
- The air is crisp when I walk out to take the boys to school.
- We had to turn off the air conditioner in the bungalow this morning.
- I haven't had to turn on the fan at the office all day.
- This morning I was able to wear a jacket for a whole 10 minutes!
Hope the weather is pretty wherever you are today!

He also had a few assists and two solo tackles, including this one at the end of the fourth quarter. (He is the one in white on the ground under the 10 yard line sign.)
I will try to keep snapping pictures...but it sure is hard to watch the game through the lens of a camera. I can get pretty carried away when I am watching him play!

Well, our beloved 7B 'Dawgs' fell prey to the sting of the Hornets last night (and yes, their color was green). It was their first loss of the season with the final score of 7-14.
Our #19 saw quite a bit of playing time on both sides of the ball in the second half. He had several assists while playing defense and caught an awesome 19 yard pass on the last Bulldog possession of the game. Too bad it was 4th and 23!
This is the picture I snapped just before his catch. I was too distracted to think to take another picture during the play...you know, with the yelling and cheering and all that his sisters and I were doing!
