Busy Weekend...

I swear, our kids social schedules are killing us. I cannot complain...we have the best friends ever, but I do know that it will only get worse!
Last night I trekked with the girlies to Columbia for a birthday dinner for Sugar..so much fun. I miss her so much and wish I could kidnap her to bring her back to the ville' for selfish reasons. I know I am not the only one who feels this way and thus wouldn't even have to ask for help in committing the crime. Plus, she would so meet us at the end of her driveway! It was great...I just can't say enough. We did miss our Clairee..it wasn't an outing with out her.

Next we had two birthday parties and soccer practice all back to back. Luckily, the practice was cancelled so it did give us some reprieve. The birthday parties were super fun; a rockstar party and then a monster party, ROAR! Mac had a blast at both and I was caked out!! On top of all of that, there was football on TV, company over for dinner, etc. It did turn fall sometime during the day and I luckily had dusted off my jacket. Maybe the cool weather will stick around.

Lastly Sunday brought church where Mac sang during the offering. I love it...I have been so excited about this. Wish I could have taken pictures during, but I didn't want to be the Mom who embarasses the kid, yet anyway. I spent the rest of the day at the sewing machine...what I had been pining for all along. We hope you all had a fantastic weekend and that all of your teams you were rooting for won!

The house of funk

We are so funkalicious over here it isn't even funny. I get a letter; A LETTER in the mail from the Health Department which states "please contact me immediately regarding Lily Kate's latest lab tests". Seriously??? I mean the heart beat DID stop. After nervously waiting by the phone for the nurse who sent me the letter to return my call (apparently they aren't at work at 7 AM in the morning), she finally called back. Three weeks ago Lily Kate had a horrible stomach virus. However, we now find out it was not a virus, it was salmonella. Oh, it doesn't stop there. She and I both went to the doctor on Monday for some kind of funky rash stuff we had. They were totally different from each other. Turns out hers is related to the salmonella, mine is shingles. Shingles. Really? Don't you have to be like 60 to get that??? Like I said, welcome to the house of funk, enter at your own risk. Oh, and keep us in your prayers!

Fun Time in the Fall

This weekend we had a wonderful visit from Nanna and Paw Paw. They brought lots of surcies for Mac since it was his birthday "week" and some Cinderella gear for Lily Kate. The kids loved the presents!!! On Saturday they got to see Mac in action at soccer practice and then we all headed over to Mount Pleasant to the Scarecrow festival at Boone Hall Plantation. There was lots of fun things for the kids like jump castles and slides, a pumpkin patch and a corn maze, goats and bunnies to feed, etc. The best part (we all agreed) was the hay ride. They took you through the woods on the plantation and had gone to great lenghths to decorate it with lots of scarecrows, cobwebs and lots of other halloween stuff! The kids loved looking out for the spiders and ghosts! We had a great time!
