A lot of Catching Up

I am not sure where I should start considering I haven’t updated the blog in a few days.  I think I will start with Thursday night.  We gave a shower for our long-time friend, Stephanie Dutton, at a Mexican restaurant.  It was a lot of fun.  Then, I went and picked up a babysitter .  She spent the night with us so that Josh and I could go get a physical.  Go get A physical, like a doctor’s appointment.  Josh joked about the slight difference between getting A physical and getting physical.  Where did he make such a joke?  In Sunday School class in front of everyone.  Lovely.  Anyway, it cracked me up when he came out of his appointment with the doctor asking if I had to do ……… or ………..  I said, “NO!”  and laughed at him, thinking he was just trying to make a joke.  He was serious this time.  Poor guy.  I didn’t know what I was getting him in to!  But I am glad I didn’t have to do all of THAT.  The three years of going to the OB/Gyn is enough to last a girl a lifetime.  I did, however, have to get the flu shot, lots of blood drawn, AND  T-dap vaccination.  You know, in case I step on a rusty nail or happen to come across whooping cough.  All will be well.  I am still sore on the shoulder that got the T-dap.  Still.  It is ridiculous.  It seems to be right where the children like to tap me to get my attention.

Josh and I enjoyed our time together.  I told him to take off a Friday more often just to spend with me, and I won’t be forced to schedule doctor appointments to have some time with him.  It will cost him a lot less, too.  We went to Cheesecake Factory to eat lunch.  It was so nice to just hang out with him and talk.  And eat, of course.

I took our sitter back home, we all took a short nap, then went and got Ruby from school.  We went to the church park to enjoy the weather.  Everyone seemed to have fun.  We picked Wendy’s up for dinner, so ALL day Friday I didn’t cook one single thing for anybody.  It was soooooo nice to not spend any time in the kitchen.

Saturday was an awesome day.  I was sad that we weren’t in Augusta for Jud’s birthday party, but we will be going to Augusta next week for Thanksgiving, so we decided to stay home.  We cleaned out our garage, got my car and Josh’s truck all cleaned up, I took a nice long walk in the gorgeous weather….and the kids and Josh played outside all day long.  The kids went to be really early, which is always nice.

Sunday was great!  We went to 8:00 church service first, then went to Sunday School at 9:30.  I think I am really going to love that schedule.  We are used to going to Sunday School first, so it was nice to do something different and not feel so rushed in the morning.  We are going to figure out Care groups this week so that we can start them this Sunday.

So, we have had a great few days, and I am looking forward to a fun week.  We accomplished a lot this morning during school time.  I am about to feed these little ones some lunch, then put Mack down while I clean up!  There is a ton of laundry to fold and put away, a lot of hardwoods to sweep and mop, and several beds that still need to be made!  At lunch time I wonder if I should just leave them unmade?   I mean, it’s not that long until they will be climbing back into bed!

The Dorminy’s are coming to visit later this week.  Ruby is performing in a Thanksgiving play on Friday, which should be great.  Her line is, “Mercy Me!”  She says it very cutely.  I am excited to see her in her classroom with her friends.

Ok, let me leave you with some pictures since I have rambled lots of random information your way.

DSC_0002As promised, here is a goofy picture of me from our “Would You Rather…?” game that we played at the Ladies Sleepover.  🙂

DSC_0004I made these cute little Indians for our Thanksgiving Dinner at my parent’s house.  I made enough for all of the cousins to have one.  They turned out super-cute!

DSC_0006This is what is waiting on me.  Fun, fun.


Ruby played a cute word families game with Turkey Feathers this morning.  Evidently it was “Backwards Day” at home school Kindergarten because she insisted on wearing her clothes inside out and backwards during school.  Who says home-schoolers can’t have fun?!

Ruby writing a story about a word that starts with the letter A.  I tried to help her come up with something really creative during our brain storming time….I told her she could have THREE “A” words and tell a story about leaving Alpharetta to go to Augusta to see Sweetie and Paw Paw, then going to Albany to see Gran and PawPaw.  BUT, she had a grand idea of writing about a very creative “A” word–Apple.  She told of picking an apple that was juicy, then taking five apples home to make an apple pie.  Oh, well.  I tried.  It is HER story though.  🙂

I hope everyone has a great week!
