Happy 6th Birthday Jacob!

We had a great time at Chucky Cheese this afternoon. Jacob had a great time with friends and an even better time with "The Cheese" himself. Even with the place being packed (seemingly beyond capacity), we enjoyed our time there. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to entertain little kids, or Lynda and I for that matter. She and I have now decided on a weekend trip to Jacksonville for some Dave and Busters (big kids version of Chucky Cheese).

Tonight Jeff and I headed off to a very short dinner at Skidaway Island State Park. Dr. Considine and his crew at Coastal Imaging were throwing a Thank You celebration for all of the area offices that have given them business in the past year. I am now lying in bed almost asleep. Enjoy your evening and the rest of your weekend.

And if you couldn't tell who was dancing with Savannah and Christopher, that would be Lynda Butt!!!

Not Feeling So Hot!!!

To be truthful he has actually been very hot over the past few days, temperature wise. Since Monday Christopher has been trying to fight off his first illness from daycare. He started with upper respiratory infection, and pink eye. Assuming he was getting better we sent him back to daycare on Thursday. That night however he started throwing up, not to mention the 102.1 fever.

Jeff stayed home with him today, since I had already missed two days this week. Christopher ended up sleeping most of the day, and was not in the mood for much of anything. Mom took us all out to dinner (because Aunt Gloria was here), and Christopher fussed through most of the meal. Even with his fussiness we still managed to enjoy some great down-home (Paula Dean) cooking at Uncle Bubba's.

Jacob's birthday is tomorrow. It's hard to believe that he is six years old. I can still remember when he was a toddler (much chunkier than Christopher) waddling around the house. He now has a mouth that gets him into as much trouble as what I used to get into. I on the other hand never got in trouble at school. I can only hope that he becomes and amazingly smart boy that can do anything he ever dreamed of. He gets to celebrate his birthday tomorrow at Chucky Cheeses with friends from school, and all of us.

So please just keep Christopher in your thoughts that he might get over this soon. Also keep us in your thoughts tomorrow while dealing with 12 kids at the best place to be a kid ;)

A Southern Snow

While I realize that most of you northerners now are disgusted by snow, I have been away from it long enough to be thrilled at the sight of the falling white stuff. Tonight I was typing away on Facebook (with my Mamma I might add), when I heard a puppy barking at snow while looking out the back door. I don't think I have been more excited this ENTIRE winter.

To look out my back door in SAVANNAH, GEORGIA and see big fluffy snow flakes was like Christmas all over again. As I sit here typing this blog, sipping Hot Cocoa, and watching the snow fall I am glad I live in the south. I can actually enjoy snow when I see it, and not be disgusted when I hear it in the forecast.

I also realize that you have probably seen enough snow this winter, but if you want to hear me as "giddy as a school girl" watch the two short videos below.

Silly Little Boy

My favorite time of the day has to be right before Christopher goes to bed. I've posted before about his nighttime routine, but failed to mention how much I love spending this time with him. He is always in the best moods right before bed, and can make my most horrible day fall to the wayside.

Tonight just happened to be a night where I wasn't in a hurry to get him in to bed. Who cares if he goes to sleep at 7:45 or 8:45 (it ended up being the later of those two). While we played in his room I grabbed my camera to capture a few of these moments. However it never fails that as soon as I start taking a video, the batteries die. Epic Fail on my part for not checking first.

I hope that everyone else has a few of these moments at some point in their day that make you sit back and say, "Life is wonderful"! Have a great night!

A New Haircut and A New Beginning

Last Sunday Christopher got his first haircut. He wasn’t in desperate need, but it was getting long. He had a rattail long enough to braid, and the hair on top of his cubby little head was starting to split. He did a really good job letting the stylist cut his hair. He was more amused by all of the ladies in JcPenny cooing over him.

This morning was a new start for Christopher; it was his first day at daycare. According to the staff at the daycare he did great. He wouldn’t take a nap, but I’m not complaining because he wouldn’t even sleep at Moms. Breakfast, Lunch, and the snack were a snap (he even finished off the other kids’ apple slices). They said that he was one of the best little boys that they had ever had. I say, “Give it a week, and he will fit
right in”!
