One Year Old!

On October 18, Miss Savannah turned 1 year old. She had her birthday party at Granmaam and Paw Paw Mason's house on Saturday, October 20. Here are a few pics.....I will put up more as they come in. Thanks to Granmaam, Ron, and Mark who took most of the pictures....I was running the video camera.

By the way, as many of you know, Lynn and I are looking for a bigger home as our collection of toys and various child items continues to expand out of control. Due to the many gifts Savannah received, this move needs to take place soon. So, if you know anyone looking for a great three bedroom, two bath garden home priced to sell in a quiet neighborhood, please let us know. And thank everyone for the beautiful gifts for Sav. She is a very loved little girl.

The Family (notice all of the icing on Lynn's shirt)
Savannah really didn't know what to do with the cake at first. So cousin Natalie crawled in to lend a hand.

3 Week Hangover

For the past three weeks, LSU has successfully made me and my brother much older. It started with a come from behind victory over Florida, followed by a less-than-motivated outing against Kentucky (not to mention probably being very sore after the Florida fiasco), leading up to the ultimate ending against Auburn. As to the decision to throw the prayer in the end zone rather than run to the middle of the field to set up the straight field goal attempt, I will default to mine and my brothers text message conversation after the game. Since we can't watch the games together, we typically exchange a few hundred text messages throughout the duration of the game. It went something like this......

Matt: no way that just happened.
Derek: Unreal!!!!
M: wow
D: you have to be kidding me
M: most screwed up thing i've ever seen
D: amazing......is les smart or crazy?
M: both I think.

Enough said. Next stop, Tuscaloosa. Geaux Tigers.

The Osborn's in Texas

If you look at this blog, and for some reason you don't check out my brothers, do yourself a favor and go there now. He and the girls just spent a week in Disneyworld, and the pics and videos are great. Seriously, if you dont have the time or money to go to Disneyworld, just visit Matt's blog. You will have a wonderful time and save some cash. Karlyle and Morgan look like they had the time of their lives. www.ozintx.blogspot.com

This is kind of a different way to look at statistics for the U.S. I thought I would share with everyone.

The following pics were taken by a guy named Chris Jordan. The idea is to give people a visual account of certain statistics rather than just numbers. He put it together by splicing together hundreds of small pictures.

The following depict the 2 million plastic bottles used by Americans every five minutes. I am as guilty as anybody on this, but I will definitely think twice about it now when I go to get a bottled water.
Sea of plastic bottles.
