Our favorite brown-eyed grandson is having his 14th birthday today!
We are so blessed to have J in our lives.
Here are some pictures from the past and a more recent one.
November came and went and I did nothing! Now I’ll try to bring you up to date on what we did during the month.
We were at A&M for a game without the Texas group…they had too much going on with high school football, etc.
Of course, our first stop was at Mo’s for bar-b-que.
We watched the team walk in…
and got to see Johnny giving a young man a high 5.
The fly-over was during the team march since the game is at night. They played UTEP and it was Military Appreciation Day>
Another great performance by the Aggie Band.
The last home game for the year was against Mississippi State. and once again we started with food!!
The team walk was so crowded that I couldn’t get any pictures. But I did see one of my favorite people…
She and I had our picture made at Arkansas but the weather was so much better today.
We visited the graves of the former Revilles.
The band did another great job…what precision.
The entire Corps of Cadets…
It was an emotional game…possibly Johnny’s last game for
Texas A&M, the last game at Kyle Field in its present form.
It was fitting that it was the 700th win at Kyle Field.
We went to Kansas City for niece Ashley’s wedding in October.
I will TRY to do better about blogging, but I think that the
reason I have been negligent about posting is because I put
things on Instagram. At least that’s the excuse I’m giving!!
Before T’s birthday, I went to Texas so I could stay with the boys while the parents went away for a few days.
Got to see both of the boys play 2 football apiece.
Thursday night game for J.
An indoor tail gate party before we watched the A&M game on TV.
There were pigs that always needed some attention.
Friday night lights.
Reinforcements arrived and parents returned.
Everybody was in their seats except for P who had to stay at home for football game review.
Back home for the 8 year olds birthday treat.
Next it was time to fly over the fly-over states.
We went to a beautiful bride’s wedding.
More family came on Sat.
We were missing a few.
Our football game took us to Little Rock and Fayetteville, Arkansas. We started off on a propeller plane…it’s been awhile since we’ve been on one of those!
We rented a Passat and felt close to Chattanooga!
We stopped for some delicious Mexican food…
our blessings were provided on the utensil wrapper…
and we had a refreshing dessert!
Since there was a 80% chance of rain at game time, we had to make a Walmart run for rain gear. We had taken some ponchos, but we knew that was not going to be enough and we were right!
The yell leaders stopped by the tail gate party before we headed to the stadium. They don’t wear any additional clothes no matter the temperature or precipitation.
Donald W. Reynolds Stadium…
The picture doesn’t show all of her “stuff” but she is always decked out in support of her boy and A&M. It's only weird if it doesn't work!
Before the game…
and during the game.
They, the University of Arkansas, didn’t allow Reveille to come…no live animals on the field. But they had a Razorback in a trailer. And the A&M band could sit in the stands but not perform at half time. They chose not to come.
A&M won the game 45-33. We have been there and don’t have to go back.
