Weekly Update

I know you've all been waiting all week to hear about what's been going on with us! Ha! I really can't believe that it's almost Friday. Ughhh day closer to starting my work weekend. Oh I can't complain though! I have Mon-Fri off and love my job.

You alreay know everything we did on Tuesday from my "A Day in the Life" post. Wednesday Brian left to go to Atlanta for 2 days for work. Me and the boys went to Walmart before Aubree got home from school and blew money on stuff we didn't need picked up a few things. Aubree just had to have some ribs from Chili's so I caved and got take-out. No way I was going in Chili's with my 10 year old, 3 year old, and 11 month old alone. That's just asking for trouble! For the rest of the evening I cleaned BBQ sauce off doorknobs, countertops, etc and vowed not to let that girl eat ribs indoors again. Next time it's outside and she has to hosed down before coming in.

Today we got some very unexpected but much needed rain just as I was getting ready to take Carter to preschool. Caleb and I played all day. He loves all the attention he gets on Tuesdays and Thursdays while the other kids are gone.

Aubree started dance tonight. She is taking Hip-hop and Jazz ballet at Showstars. I think that she will enjoy it. She asked to do it and has several friends there. It's one night a week so it's not a problem with school. She quit softball. To say that she was burned out would be the understatement of the year! She also got her progress report today...4 A's and 2 B's!! GO AUBREE!!!!!!!!!

Finished up our evening playing and studying for a Social Studies test tomorrow that she will pass with flying colors. Oh...I forgot to mention that she had a project this week and she got a 100 on it too. She is doing really well this year as far as grades go but there's  a couple mean girls in her class. We all know what that's like!
You know that you are a mommy or getting older  when you get excited about hanging your babies pics on the wall. All my kids pics are finally hung. We've only been here since March so that's not too bad. I would like to thank my mother-in-law for her suggestions on how to hang the pics as her son was coming up with some crazy unique ideas. Glad to know he'll take her advice. I have a list of things that I need to get to her ASAP! Here's a look at my babies pics. They were done by the one and only Phil Ramsey. He is awesome!

 First pic is Carter. My boys look so much alike. I had this same shot done with Caleb
but you could not tell them apart and they are wearing the same outfit. I thought some may think
why does she have 2 pics of the same kid? Lol!
My baby, Caleb. Look at that smile and those 2 teeth!
Aubree's just takes my breath away! These pics of the pics do them no justice. Her pictures were taken on my family farm which makes them even more meaningful. I actually framed hers myself from an old mirror.
I guess that's all for now. I'll be spending the day with my dad tomorrow at the hospital. Hoping for good results and that nobody there knows that I am a nurse. It can be pretty entertaining when they don't know.  


  1. We had ribs the other night too -love those suckers. Hip Hip - my Elle Bell started hers last week and she is loving it. She loves wearing her Converse All Stars and acting all funky. It is too cute. Best of luck with your dad tomorrow - prayers headed your way.

  2. Best wishes with your dad tomorrow! And your comment about picking thing sup from Walmart made me smile because that's what I do EVERY TIME. :)

  3. I am such a sucker for Walmart...I go in for 3 things...I leave with 15. HOW do they do that to us? It's gotta be subliminal messaging. Hope your dad is doing okay. Yummm ribs!!!

  4. I don't know how Walmart does it but they do! My dad is doing well. Thanks so much!
