Fantasy Football / Dominoes

Fantasy football draft was this weekend.

Putting together another grill. (Flash back to going away party, we got a little nicer grill this time.)

We hooked the computer up to the TV in the living room for easier viewing of the picks.

Group picture time.

After the football was done it was some time for dominoes!!!

Big Texas!

Some of the things you just don't get in Nigeria.

We went to go see Brandon Rhyder in concert at Big Texas. Suzanne and Heather looking cute as can be.

Here are a bunch of yo yo's standing around being goofy.

I'd just like the say that the beers were not all ours. See previous picture to see all the guys standing around our table.

Hey look, that's us.

More pictures of us, Isn't she cute in her pearl snap shirt and boots. I guess you have to look back at the first picture to see the boots.

Random Items In Our House

We have a lot of stuff so I'm not going to put up pictures of everything. I'll put some pictures to hold you over until the finished product pictures come out.

Abstract Nigerian Art.

Another painting that goes well in our room.

The infamous room divider.

Nigerian wooden heads hanging on the wall.

The hand carved bench. We think the wood carving guy did a pretty good job. There is a mirror hanging just above the bench but the picture with the mirror didn't turn out real well, so just imagine a mirror with a hand carved wooden frame hanging just above the bench.

Some built in shelve are perfect for our random collection items.

Our fireplace with some art niches for more collectibles.

Weekend break in Austin

We had to take a break from all the moving and unpacking, so we went to Austin for the weekend.

Suzanne went to see Wicked with Rebecca, they had a really good time.

After the show it was game time. If we are at the Nolan's house it is a requirement that we play at least one game.

Suzanne was tired and went to sleep, but Dave and Rebecca decided that a game of Risk was in order.

Attack, Attack!!!

Some time with the little Nolan's.

Moving Day

We have some really great friends that helped us move into our new house. They stayed from 10 in the morning until 11 at night, asking for nothing but a meal (and a couple of beers) in return.

This was about half way though the first load.

Starting the unpacking process in the new house.

A good nipple pinch (we really never got any older than 13.)

If there is a ballgame playing it is going to be on at my house!

Buc-ee's the cleanest bathroom in town.

The end of a very long day. By no means the end of the moving process. (Pictures of the finished product to follow when we get our shipment home and everything in it's proper place.)

Moving Weekend

We haven't had a chance to get settled yet. This weekend we move into our new house. After everything settles down a bit we should get a chance to put up some more blog stuff.

Good Bye Poppy

This past Sunday a very dear man in our lives passed on.

He was a very loving and very loved man and will be dearly missed, but we know he is in a better place now. Rest in Peace, and we will see you again when we get where we are going.
