friday five


We had a great week and ofcourse it went by way too quickly!

Excited about the weekend because I am doing hair for the wedding party of my great-great-grand little in my sorority!  Then I also have a little anxiety because Adam is taking a motorcycle ride to TN with a group.  Prayers please!

1.  Late afternoons feeding the duckies...I see many of our Fall afternoons spent here.

2.  McDonald's dipped cones!

3.  My littlest little is now 6 mths old and we went for her 6 mth check up yesterday.

4.  Halloween candy and goodies!  Somehow things taste better when they are a festive shape or color!

5.  This quote.

Happy Friday!  Ready to take on this day and gear up for our fun weekend ahead!

weekend wrap up

E has been battling a cold for a week now and Friday night her eye was a little red but I just thought it was from the cold/allergies.  Well, Saturday, both girls woke up with pink swollen eyes so my immediate thought was pink eye :(  I had to go to work so I told Adam to take them to the after hours clinic as soon as they opened.  He got Mom to go with him and I met them there after work.  Fortunately, it was not pink eye but just associated to the allergies/cold.  The doc prescribed them an antibiotic and some eye drops.  They were both pitiful, especially E.  Poor thing, I've never seen her that sick. 

Adam and I had a date night planned and were hestitate to leave them, but fortunately they were feeling better and we knew they would be in good hands with my cousin, Adrianna.

So we headed off to dinner :)

And we were going to follow up dinner with a trip to Books-A-Million, but Ad's brother had a motorcycle accident on Tuesday night and we wanted to check on them to see if they needed anything.  He needed some bandages so we dropped those off and he was awake so we visited a little while.  It was really nice to get out and have some adult time after the week we had with the girls being sick.

M received a little package in the mail from Mem Lambert which was supper sweet :)

We didn't go to church because we didn't want to spread any cooties so we had Dunkin Donuts for breakfast then E and I baked brownies and made buffalo chicken dip for the Patriot's game.

Adam and E went to watch the game while I stayed with M while she napped.  After naptime, we went to visit with the family and finish watching the game.

And then sweet M decided I wasn't feeding her quick enough so she decided to take matters into her own hands :)  She is growing up way too fast!!

I am happy to report that most of the sickness has left the girls, but now Ad is getting sick :(  I guess it never ends!

E's very first dance class

Ella Jae on her very first dance class last Monday.  We started the day by going to the dance store to get her all the special things to get her ready for very first day of dance class.  We ofcourse had to have a little photo op before we headed off on to this new little adventure.  When we got there, I saw a few familiar faces which was very fun to me.  Having a few girls that I know bringing their little girls to the same dance class was great because it kept me from losing it and getting all emotional ha!

E ofcourse did fantastic!  She loves to dance around and typically is not afraid in any situation, but I was still a little unsure at how she would do.  Fortunately, she just went right along with her teacher and never looked back.  Several little girls had to be peeled off of their Mommy, but nope, not Ella Jae!  Her teacher first tooke them to see the 'big' girls dance.  I then see all the little girls come trotting back, but not Ella Jae.  And then I hear, "come on, let's go.  Let's go see Mommy."  And I get up to go see and the teacher said she was in the middle of all the big girls dancing and didn't want to leave ha!  What I can say, she is a tiny little dancer at heart!  And I am so glad that I put her in dance rather than gymnastics. 

Then it was time for her little dance class and the teacher again took them back.  We didn't get to see her and for good reason because none of the kiddies would probably pay attention.  But there is an open dance class every 6-8 weeks which is nice and I am definitely looking forward to it!  Her class is only 30 min., and so when it was over she had candy and a big smile on her face.  As we walked out the door, she said "we'll come back.  we'll come back!"  I said 'yea, baby, we'll come back.  every monday, we'll be back' :)  Sweet little thing!!!  I cannot wait to see her thrive and I hope she'll stick with some type of dance through the years or sports or whatever because I believe it helps shape a person in so many different ways.

Here's to many more years of dance and all things pink and frilly :)
