A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
Matt trying to get the clasp of the bracelet fastened around Lauren's wrist...what is it with guys and clasps...generations of men have not been able to figure this out...so cute...he was blushing! (Click on photos to enlarge.)
Matt and Lauren had a great time at the homecoming dance. The wonderful thing about being friends is that you know you like the person, can easily talk to the person, and truly enjoy being with that person. They had a lot of fun chatting, dancing, listening to the music, and just spending the evening together. She loved her corsage, her dress was so pretty on her, and Matt looked great...they made one fine looking couple. We took these photos at Lauren's house beforehand...Lauren has two older brothers, one who swims with Matt also, and it was so sweet as you could tell that the boys had been duly "warned" beforehand that they were not to tease Matt or Lauren during any of this. I have never seen JJ more solemn in my life, but noted that the twinkle never left his eyes and I can imagine that come practice Monday, there will be a bit of teasing going on, as guys this age are wont to do. And, what did Alex think of all of this? Hard to tell...I do know that he is opting for a campout that was scheduled the weekend of his homecoming, so I am thinking that, to Alex anyway, camping is still more important than dancing.
