Our little ballerina!

Monday, April 28, 2008 | 0 comments

Ava's ballet pictures came back today, and I couldn't believe how cute they were! Ava has been in ballet since last August, and her first recital is next Saturday the tenth. She is so totally excited, and keeps talking about dancing on the stage. Today was her first rehearsal on the actual stage, and she was sooo pumped!
As her mother, I can't believe she is old enough to do something like this, but she sure does love it and it's so cute to see her practicing her "bal-la-lay" moves. (she still can't say ballet, so I guess she's not THAT old! ha!ha!....WHEW!)

Bye Bye PCB, see ya next time!...Ha! Ha! Yesterday afternoon after squeezing in four last hours on the beach, we headed back to the great ATL! I arrived home around two thirty this morning, and got straight in the bed for some MUCH needed rest after our WILD and CRAZY weekend. It's funny because we were "getting away" in the first place for some rest and relaxation, and we ended up acting like teenagers and not going to bed before three am each night! Ha! Go figure! Needless to say, the problem with that is, I am NOT a teenager, and no amount of acting like one is going to fool my thirty SOMETHING body!...............oh to be young again and be able to recover from a weekend like this in a day or two,..........instead of the WEEK that it's going to take ME!!!!!!! Ha!Ha!Ha!
IT WAS WORTH IT THOUGH!! We had such a great time just being away from all responsibilities and commitments, and just laughing and being crazy! I think ALL women need to get away with their friends from time to time for some rejuvenation!!
I have to say though, the closer I got to Atlanta, the more I couldn't wait to see my husband and children. I am so thankful for a husband who makes sacrifices and takes GREAT care of the kids so that I can go on these trips every now and then! Thank you sweetie!

And thanks girlies for the GREAT fun weekend!! Can't wait till next time!..........and maybe next time we can see Shawty's "patio furniture"!

PCB day two!!

0 comments




Another gorgeous day!! ALL four of us are fried to a CRISP!! We were on the beach today for about seven hours!...............Surprisingly we went shopping(AGAIN!) at the outlets, and another late dinner at a great Sushi restaurant!! We then decided that SOME of us couldn't be trusted to stay awake at home for a movie, so we went to a late movie in Destin!.......Hollie then proceeded to take us on a "tour" of Friday night life in PCB, McDonald's ice cream, and a black moon..................and that's all I'm going to say about that!.............Check out Hollie's blog for what we are doing right now at 2:45 am.............................

Authentic Mexican vs filthy rugrats!

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 | 2 comments

I did NOT pick out this outfit for Carter today!!!!!!!.....In fact I never even saw him before he left this morning. When I went to pick him up at school, and saw him waiting for me, I thought I was going to die!!......Then to make matters worse, he must have been in a hurry with Craig this morning and did not get the shampoo rinsed out.........making his hair nasty and greasy!!!......................needless to say, I have handpicked his clothes for tomorrow............and it doesn't involve dark green socks!!............OYE!!!

Carter climbing at Kidstock!

Have you EVER seen such filth????

Who cares how filthy she is..............she doesn't!! Go Hope!!


Tonight we had an authentic Mexican meal prepared for us by our awesome new friends the Canada's. The Canada's were our translators in the Dominican, and when she found out how much Hollie and I enjoyed Mexican food, she invited us over for "the real stuff".......and it was AWESOME!!
While we ate, we hired Vickie to come and watch all four kids at Kidstock so that we could actually carry on conversation.
Upon retrieving our children, they had a surprise for us...........COMPLETE and UTTER FILTH!!!!!!!.........I don't think my children have EVER been this dirty before!! We couldn't stop laughing at how nasty they were............Oh my!!
Oh well, they had fun and they LOVED Vickie! Thanks Vickie! And Thanks Canada's for an awesome night!

Sunday football and smores!!

Monday, April 21, 2008 | 0 comments





Ava thought she would get a little tackle in herself!
Hey guys, fire just doesn't magically appear!!


Yesterday after church we headed to the Dover's for some football, pizza, smores, and a movie! The weather right now is unbelievably amazing, so we spent the entire afternoon and evening outside! Robin and I were testing lots of different hot teas while the "boys" played football, and Ava did a little of both! Ha! (we didn't get home until 10:30 last night, which didn't make for such a great morning!!....oops!)
I am so excited that we are finally having consistently warm beautiful weather, but now I have the "summer pool itch".....can't wait!!

Ummm, my husband has NEVER made smores before!

2 comments



NO JOKE!! This is how Craig thought you make smores.......we were laughing so hard, and he couldn't figure out why we were laughing!.. He kept saying "my hand is getting a little hot, how long does this take?" and Jeff just kept telling him to hang on a little longer.........I have NEVER laughed this hard at my husband before!! Then he started getting mad that we were laughing at him (because he can dish, but he can't take!). He then wanted to know where the "poker thing" was that would fit his ENTIRE smores sandwich on it, because all he could see were the "poker things" that only held marshmallows, and by golly, he didn't want just marshmallows!! He wanted the whole sandwich cooked....................???????!!!!!!!:-)...........OH MY, now who's blonde?..............................................................I'm pretty sure that he will NEVER live this one down!! Jeff and Robin were beside themselves with laughter!!

So, the next time you see Craig, ask him if he would like to make some smores!!!
