THREE of our grandgirls are playing
this season.
Our twins,
we call 'em A and B
Well, except for CATE..
she calls them BOTH

58 TO 8
Mizz CATE didn't look too happy here..
her bottom lip is sure stickin' out..
"What's the matter, CATE.... aren't you glad your aunts won their game ?"

AWWW...if it wasn't so late,
we'd go for cookies and ice cream..
but, it's way past your bedtime already....

I just had to post this adorable comment from DONNA... has left a new comment on your post "BASKETBALL...":

"Oh what a beautiful Post with all your Girls!!! If you have twin A&B, doesn't that make lil' Cate "C"??? LOVE this!!!
Hugs to you,

 I went home and had a nice cup of HOT TEA..
and a slice of Pecan Cake with CHEESE..
NEVER quit praying for all our sisters in need.
I am linking with PINK SATURDAY

Enjoyed attending the basketball with you. I think the little one is just precious. Lip and all.

It's so much fun to watch high school basketball. We are headed to a game in just a few minutes. The player we are watching is the nephew of our neighbor's. He's a great player!

P.S. I should also add that this is for a very small country school.

Hi BJ, it looks as though you had a wonderful time at the basketball game. You and a little sweet one that is.
It's all about the kids isn't it? They enrich our lives so much and who would have known. Happy Pink Saturday and thank you for the comment about the lottery ticket. I hope you do it, AND I hope you don't have the bad's the stress of a possible win! HA! Char

I'm with CATE. . .probably like me, tired of sitting. Rather be participating than on the sideline any day. Glad the A & B twins won their game! Now about that offer to go get ice cream and cake. . .it's not past my bedtime!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment. I agree Life Is Grand! Enjoyed your post about your family. And the pecan cake with tea ~ looks delish!

Family is everything! We use to enjoy watching our girls play sports at school. Now we follow Nick on the cross country meets! I have missed visiting you. A belated Happy Birthday you sweet thing! Anne

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

Oh what a beautiful Post with all your Girls!!! If you have twin A&B, doesn't that make lil'Cate "C"??? LOVE this!!!
Hugs to you,

Jeanne said...

Hi bj, wow, what a lopsided score. Yay for the girls. That must have been some game to get excited about. When we watched our granddaughter Ashley play soccer for her High School in Florida, they won their game too. It was special because we do not live close to our grands. I wish we did. That's why we always have them here in the summer.

I adore your darling Cate. Pouting and all, she is a cute little Pinkie.

I had two cups of tea while Bill and I played cards and I am NOT sleepy. Not good! He won...darn. HA!

Have a wonderful weekend enjoying your grands. I know they keep you busy and that is a good thing. Thanks for your sweet comment on the wedding. We adore the new addition to our family. We are blessed.
Love and hugs,

Kathleen said...

How are you feeling today Ms Pecans?

Cute post! We didn't get to see one bball game of our 9 yo gdau due to the snow, and now the season is over.

You are blessed they live so close. And they are so blessed to have you!

Susy said...

Love A, B, and C ~ what a delight they must be! Blessings xo

Tracy said...

How fun! I love sports and the benefits for children who do play sports...Good for A and B...the cupcake treat looks scrumptious!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Lovin' the little pouty lip-too cute:@)

Blondie's Journal said...

I loved going to my kids games, I would be hoarse from screaming!! Cate is just adorable. And pass that pie!


Shelia said...

Hi Dear BJness! Yay to the basketball gals! How cute they are! Little Cate is adorable too! Love seeing that little poked out lip! She's got some personality, doesn't she?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Jojo said...

I'm so happy to meet a fellow pie lover!!!! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Love the cupcake panda.

Justine said...

That's true... Cate has to be C. If you have and A and B, you gotta have a C... easy as 1, 2, 3...

Cheese with a slice of cake? Is that a bizarre southern thing? I know when I worked at Marriott in room service someone one ordered a slice of apple pie with cheddar melted on top. Ewwwwwwwww

Justine :o )

Valrie said...

I love this blog! A&B and little C are so cute! I too am a BC survivor. Thanks for supporting BC research!

Pink Saturday Hugs!


xinex said...

What a cute post, BJ. I am glad your grandgirls are busy in school sports. That keeps them out of trouble. A,B,C....I like that!...Christine

Phyllis said...

Sure is a good way to spend time with the kids and happy thay aren't glued to video games!!

Oh please share the recipe for pecan cake!

Valrie said...


I believe we will become great friends! I too as a domestic violence survivor have so much compassion. I serve at domestic violence workshops, have done speeches and fundraisers for both BC and DV through the Mary Kay Ash foundation over the last 30 years! Email me to find out how we can join efforts and raise awareness and funds to support our passions! Incidentaly my mom's nickname was BJ short for Betty Jane. She entered Heaven after a courageous battle against cancer.

Thanks for stopping by!

BJ, You have the cutest first part of the alphabet. Are any of your family members working toward more of the alphabet? Maybe the photo of "C" was taken before her aunts' team got so far ahead. (What a cute panda ice cream cup!) Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ, they are as cute as can be! I mean adorable. And Cate's lip is the cutest thing ever. LOL!

Happy Seasonal Sunday to you...
