Family Reunion and Biloxi, Mississippi

Saturday was my dad's dad's side family reunion in Biloxi. I have never ever met these people before. When we got there, everyone was soooooo nice. We met so many nice family. My dad sure had a great time.

After we left the reunion, we headed to the hotel\casino, checked in and got to our room. Relax some, then head down to the casino and ate. It was fun even though I lost lol

This is the view from our room at night time......It used to be very pretty but Katrina destroyed it =(
But it's coming back!!!!

Sunday, we got up, got ready and checked out the room. We had breakfast at a great place in the casino.

After breakfast we headed to the cemetery to visit my Grandma and Grandpa and clean up their stones. Then we headed to my Great-Aunt's house and visit.

We took the beach way home.........some of the cities didn't come back from Katrina, it was so sad. It was a very fun weekend. Got home and relax the rest of the night.

Hope y'all had a great weekend

Family Reunion

Today I am going to a Family Reunion in Mississippi. It's my dad's dad's side. Never ever met them. It's going to be ALL the kids since ALL the adults have passed away. Should be fun meeting family that I have never met. My dad, my brother and I are going. I will try to take some pictures. I hope after all of this, I will be friends with some of the family.

Have any of y'all ever going to a Family Reunion and never met any of them till that day? Are you now friends with some of them?

Saying good bye to a wonderful pet is so hard to do

Sunday night around 11:46pm I got a text from my mom saying that our sweet family dog who was 10 yrs old passed away in her sleep. She was already in pain with hurt bones, but she was doing somewhat great. My brother and I headed over there to have a service for her. She is buried next two 2 of the other sweet dogs that passed away and both were really sick at the end.

She will surely missed. She was a great dog. So many great memories we had with her.

There were so many great memories of her, but there is 2 I will never forget:

1. She was a 80 pound dog, but she thought she was still a puppy, so if you sit on the ground, she would get in your lap and sit there.

2. You "What Dixie? What Dixie?" and she would bark



Right now I am happy crying and happy shaking and cannot stop smiling!!! I have been a fan of the Mavs for 4 years!!!This is amazing!!!  I AM SOOOOO PROUD TO BE A MAVERICKS FAN FOR LIFE!!!!!


I ORDER my championship shirt tonight!!!!

What a day and night we had

It all started out a beautiful hot day here in BR. The all of the sudden BAM!!! A bad thunderstorm hit. It was like a hurricane, but the news said it was a mini tornado. Power went out at 3:49 in the afternoon. My dad called the power company and they said it will be back on at 2AM. Then it started to hail and my car got hail on it(no damages that I can see) the neighbourhood looks like a total wreck, trees down, branches down. It looked like there was a hurricane. My dad's friend called him on our way to find something to eat and he told us that a tree went straight in his kitchen then his daughter and hubby gazebo got picked up and landed on their house. Thank GOD no one was hurt. After dinner, my dad called the power company again and they said it was going to be at 4AM, so we headed to one of his friends house where he had power and stayed for awhile. About an hour later, we headed back home and played some games to killed time. Around 2 something he called the power company again this time they said it was going to be around 8AM. That time we all headed to bed trying to sleep, at 2:49 it FINALLY came back on. This has been a crazy day and night.  Sunday is yard pick up day, even though we got some of it picked up, there is still plenty left to be done. 

Please I asking you all to pray for the people in Baton Rouge, La (some are not in their homes tonight due to trees)  We are fine, thank you God for that, but some were not lucky. MOST of Baton Rouge was out of power today.

Well, I am going to try to get some sleep, hopefully Sunday is a better day................Today was scary and it's even Hurricane season =(

Hope y'all had a great Saturday!!!
