Little Bear's Homecoming

Little Bear
Of course, Mug found a best friend!
Mr. Brodie and Mug (future KOT float chairs)
A short nap on daddy's shoulder was all I needed!
"its been a long morning, but we are ready to party!"
We need Aunt Kimberly to follow us around and take her fabulous pictures!

What a production! I always think Baylor Homecoming could be a holiday. I know some of you did not go there, but let me tell ya, it is a very big show. I know our football team is not worth bragging on, BUT our homecoming festivities are so much fun! Our parade is, or used to be the biggest and best in the nation. Still to this day, when I go I feel like I am in another world. I think it is all nostalgic for me because there are so many people from when you were in school and when I was in the parade. There were a lot of visitors this year to my delight! MANY now have kiddos or are married. Just a great time! Of course there is a huge gathering at the Horners annual homecoming party before the game! More friends and fun! This year was so special because Tristan was here to show off--all dolled up in his bear suit. I think my favorite thing about this year was letting my mind wander into the future, thinking about Tristan and all his baby friends-Creighton, Brodie, Patriot, Betsy Grace, Karoline, Townlin and so many other pals...maybe one day they will all be there together! They will have so many memories to look forward to and cherish! Happy Homecoming!!

Thanks for the compliment, but if you notice--- I'm in all the pictures I sent you except the last one & I was holding sleeping Creighter Bug. Benjie took all those!! Maybe he should become the photographer!

Love your precious little family,

It was so good to see you for just a bit and finally get to meet your little bear! He's just as in love with you as you are with him.
