Today, I took the kids to see "Marley and Me", and I haven't cried so hard in a movie in a very long time. The kids cried too. In fact, the entire theatre cried. It made me wanna go home and give my 3 dogs some extra lovin'....there really IS nothing like the love of a dog...and I'm triple-blessed!!!

This is baby Logan on his first Christmas morn, (the newest of the Autherson's, and the last male to carry on the name). That couch? Well...put it this way....I can remember sleeping on it as a toddler, and I'm 38. Grandpa told me he bought it for $400 way back when...Bargain!!! LOL!!!

Due to Peyton's involvement in the Cavs summer camps, once again he was treated to some special benefits at last weeks game against the Bulls....high-fiving the team!! Not bad for a 10-yr-old! We had a great time, but WOW...recovering from a late night up and back from Cleveland is getting harder with age.....

I can't believe I have been out of high school for 20 years!! It was so great to see everyone at our 20th year reunion this past weekend. Everyone looks pretty much the same....just "wiser":) We had a visit from our very own Bulldog mascot! All hail the brown and white!

Wow.....32 years had gone by since the Autherson's held a family reunion, and here it was. Tons of people that I'm related to that I didn't know existed. Simply weird!! Most of these people are offspring of my Grandpa Autherson's brothers and sisters. I guess my "family" is bigger than I thought!

I took Grace 2 1/2 hours North of here to take a tour of Hannah Montana's tour bus! Here she is standing near the bedroom where Hannah's parents sleep on the bus. You can see one of Hannah's wigs, her guitar, and several of her clothing items in the background. Grace got her hair "rocked out" while there also. Fun mom/daugher day!

I had seen a documentary on Arlington West, and was happy to get the opportunity to see this exhibit in person, proudly displayed next to the Santa Monica Pier by Veterans for Peace. Each white cross represents a fallen American soldier in Iraq, and each red cross represents 10 fallen soldiers. The mock caskets represent the number of soldiers killed that particular week in Iraq, which was 7 when we were there. What a beautiful tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. I also visited the Los Angeles National Cemetary, where my nephew, Daniel Cagle, was laid to rest in May of 2007, after being killed in Iraq by an IED.

Above are a few pics from the reception held following this year's Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen Pageant. The former Miss Ohio's in attendance were featured at their very own dessert tables, allowing guests to mingle with them one on one, get pics, autographs, etc. I had a great time, and hope they continue the tradition...P.S. Four of the five formers pictured above have tattoos!! We discovered that while hanging out together. Oh, and yes, I'm the oldest of the bunch!

I hadn't been back to Mrs. Ohio Int'l in ELEVEN years since winning in 1996, but this year, due to the fact that the pageant moved to Zanesville, and my good friend Vicky LeVeck is directing it, I just had to go!! Here are a bunch of formers and our new Mrs. Ohio.
