At the recent end of year awards banquet for the Valley Bulldogs, our Bulldog, Brennan, was given some very high praise by the coaching staff. I'm sure the praise was deserved as I've seen him play and, even though I was just watching, I wanted to run away from some situations he faced. Not Brennan, however; he faced each situation with the determination of, well…a bulldog.
The family celebrated Hannah's "sweet 16th" on Nov. 26. Our family has the tradition that the birthday person gets to have the supper of their choice on their special day. Being the truly unique girl she is, Hannah chose French toast. I think she's been to one too many hunt breakfasts with the hunt club – the club does a "breakfast" after each hunt, even though it is normally closer to supper time.
We've had a windy few days recently, but it's still green on the ground. I'm hoping it stays that way for Christmas, but I know differently, unfortunately.
