The invasion of the college coeds
This was Texas-OU weekend and anyone who follows college football knows what a big rivalry it is. Texas lost but I had a great time. Allison came home for the game and brought 7 friends with her to stay in our house. They brought sleeping bags and pillows and camped out in our floor. Several of her other friends came over on Friday night for dinner. Curtis grilled chicken, smoked a brisket, made macaroni salad and a big pot of beans and they ate until they couldn't move. They played a giant game of Uno in the living room floor while a game of dominos was going on in the dining room and Curtis and I just enjoyed listening to the chatter of young people in the house. I didn't much understand any of the biology discussion that was going on but loved hearing the laughter. I got up early on Saturday to fix them a big breakfast before they headed off to the fair. Allison made me laugh a couple more times. The first time was when she yelled , "Mommy, I can't believe you aren't taking pictures of all these people getting ready in our bathroom at the same time!" Of course, I obliged. Look closely. There is a boy brushing his teeth in the midst of those girls. The second time was when they were about to leave and she announced a ticket check! She held up her ticket and said , "I want to see everyone's ticket because if I have to turn around and come home, I will be seriously annoyed." Taught her well, didn't I? Fun times. I hope they come back next year, too.
