Chronicling the Journey of the Homeyers

This weekend was pretty nice. 

Thursday (our weekend starts on Thursday, just like in college) the Stanley’s brought us dinner and met Brooks.  Courtney and Logan are excellent cooks.  Kelley and I tend to be a little unadventurous in our cooking, but the Stanleys are not.  They (or should I say, Courtney!) made Greek Wedding Soup complete with lamb meat ballsand pita bread as well as strawberries, cool-whip and angel food cake.  It was excellent!  Sadly we didn’t get any pictures of dinner OR of Logan, Courtney, and Weiss with Brooks.  I guess we’ll just have to do it again!

Friday Kelley’s uncle and aunt, Randall and Donna, brought Kelley’s grandma, Ma Genie, down from Vernon to meet Brooks.  Terry, Amy, Aaron, and Chelsey came over as well. 

It was incredibly sweet watching Ma get to hold her first great-grandson and get to visit with the Grafs. 



Saturday the Cook Family made the trek down from Waco to meet Brooks as well.  We one day look forward to receiving great wealth from Graham and Storey in the form of a dowry when Brooks marries Cambell, so it was very exciting to see Cambell and Brooks meet for the first time. 

Graham and I met 10 years ago this month on our first day at Baylor.  We’ve been great friends for a decade and it was incredibly special  to be together with our kids. 

On a lighter note, Cambell loves animals (dogs included) and enjoys giving them a piece of her mind.  We’re not sure exactly what she tells them, but she lets them know what she is thinking, in her own language, and with great passion.  Max was a good sport.  See the video for details.

    I LOVE the video of Cambell and Max!!! That is absolutely hilarious!!!! She’s precious…. (And the dowry comment was pretty funny, too!!)

    And yes, we will have to do dinner/a get-together very soon….

    Has it really been 10 years? Now we both have babies and trophy wives…. I think we would put together a sad flag football team now. Or maybe that’s just me.

    We really enjoyed hanging out with you and Kelley and meeting Brooks. I’m glad Brooks and Cambell are close in age. I know at some point in time she will probably try to boss him around instead of Max. You guys have a great little family–congratulations again!
