Hodger Podger

Good things are in the air--for one, we get the entire week of Thanksgiving OFF! Second, it's time for the Hodge Podge! Welcome back Joyce! So glad y'all came through the storm in good shape!

1.  What rule of life should never be broken? The female always makes the rules. Nonono...the female can change her mind at any time without permission or warning...nononon0...LOL I'm kidding, sort of. How about not taking things or people for granted. 

2.  What's your favorite family recipe? There are just too many of them to pick one. 

3.  Is the media manipulative? This is a rhetorical question, right? 

4. Hubs and I saw Skyfall last weekend...are you a fan of the Bond films? If so, who's your favorite Bond? I don't go for those films. Though I did love Sean Connery and Roger Moore as Bond. Kind of a toss up as to who I liked best. Birdie, however, is an AVID Bond fan and loves them all! 

5. What is one thing you hope people never say about you? That I am judgmental. Or unfair.  

6.  What's a nearby tourist attraction you'd like to see, but haven't gotten around to visiting? Nothing. I've seen it and done it. When you have four daughters, you tend to get around to all those places--locally and in surrounding states. 

7.  Where's your favorite tree? Right here in Charleston--well, on John's Island. It's called the Angel Oak and is said to be over 1500 years old. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here. I can't begin to tell y'all how thrilled I am to know that we have the entire week of Thanksgiving OFF! That means, on Friday, when I leave school, I won't have to go back for NINE DAYS! 

OH! And we have a new family member- nephew and his wonderful wife had a baby boy yesterday morning around 5:00. 

Welcome Jedidiah: 

The parents:



  1. Congratulations to the happy parents! And to you for getting a whole week off. :-)

  2. Aww, new babies make life sweeter...congrats to mom and dad! I'm way behind on reading blogs, but hope you'll have lovelies in the house for Thanksgiving!

  3. sweet baby boy...happy thanksgiving!

  4. Oh what a pretty picture of your newest family member. I think the parents picture is pretty cute too.
    I would love to see that Oak tree. I am compiling a list for when I show up on your doorstep. :) I am so glad you get nine days off!!! That is great!

  5. Judy- Thanks!Hey- I need some soap! I want to put together a basket for the new mommy---I'm headed your way soon!

    Joyce- We're having a gathering for them the Saturday after Thanksgiving and I can't wait to sit and hold that little bundle! So glad y'all are well. Yes! All but one lovely will be home (the DC one has to work) but all will be here for Christmas!

    skoots- I can't wait to see him in person! Thanks! You too!

  6. Kim! Thanks- They are just the sweetest things! He's like the son I never had and the brother the lovelies never had. They are all very close and it's the same with his sweet wife. He's a youth pastor and she's a worship artist! They are incredible. I cannot wait for you to show up on my doorstep! I will take you everywhere! And then I sneaking on the plane with you to visit your neck of the woods. In the winter though. Y'all get too hot. LOL

  7. Hey, lucky you with a whole week off. That's a whole week to enjoy thanksgiving leftovers right? :)
    That is a very handsome addition to your family. Congratulations to all.

  8. First off: the baby is absolutely beautiful!
    Several people said Angel Tree. Next time I'm that way I'm going to have to look it up. Of course, I have NO idea when that will be. :)

  9. Aw,such a lovely blessing, a sweet little baby boy!!

    Enjoy your nine days, Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  10. Such an adorable baby! Congrats to all!! I said this before, but how fun to have the whole next week OFF!! That will put you in a festive mood indeed!


  11. Gorgeous baby, all the perfect little features made me smile!
    Good for you, a week off! I've only been back 2 weeks from Hallowe'en break and I'm wrecked already!

  12. Awww ... there's nothing like a new baby to snuggle. Hope you get to soon.

    And of course, we picked the same tree for #7. ;-)

  13. Enjoy snuggling the new baby. Congrats to the parents. Happy Thanksgiving.

  14. Aww, your newest family member is a cutie! Enjoy your nine days off :)

  15. What a gorgeous little one.

    As for what I hope no one ever says about me? That I was a bad friend.

  16. I keep hearing about his Angel Oak. Someday I'll have to go see it!

  17. What a beautiful family! Congratulations to them and you:) I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  18. Awww, Jedidiah is adorable.
    I have heard my Aunt talk about the Angel tree, it sounds like it would truly be a sight to see.
    Enjoy your time off and Happy Thanksgiving!!

  19. Yes Sean Connery was the best! Someone else posted the Angel Oak and it's gorgeous. Enjoy your week off.

    Aww...he is precious. Congratulations!
