Roll Tide Roll!!

Saturday night we were invited to eat at the home of friends from church and watch the Alabama game!! Keith made some YUMMMMMMYYYY homemade bbq on his grill and we had a huge feast to eat before enjoying watching Alabama roll over Clemson! What a great upset at the start of the let's just hope the Tide can keeping rolling like that all season long...I'll have a happy hubby for sure!!

They insisted on taking their stuffed elephants with them over to our friend's house
McKenna is an adorable little girl from church. I tried and tried to capture her putting the Mr Potato head glasses on, but each time the picture took, she'd moved them...arrgghh!! So here she has a mustache on her head.

Love - adore - fancy

While ordering some new math workbooks the other day I came across this book by Neil Stephen Klayman. I thought it looked cute illustration wise, and I liked the idea of finding a really fun way to talk more about Synonyms. It arrived today, and we LOVE it!! It's So cute!! and when we were done John Mark asked if we had a Thesaurus because he wanted to look through one and all the different words!!! thankfully we do -well and he also wanted to take a bite and see what it tasted like, but we assured him that just like with Boris, the words would only go to his tummy not to his go to your brain you need to read lots!!

Two thumbs up for Boris!! We truly fancied, liked, admired it!!!

I was hacked

not in computer stuff...
I recommend all those that blog reading this go to your dashboard and ensure you don't have any 'extra' blogs started that perhaps you didn't start.

stinky mosquitoes!!

Well, I've been sick all week...not sure completely what it is, but there is a chance it's malaria....yes seriously!
They ran a ton of tests today, and gave me IV fluids plus some meds. We'll see if any of that works. They said they will call as the tests come in and the meds need to change. Fun....
what a way to spend your b'day weekend, huh?! I guess most Moms would love to stay in bed and do nothing all day, but I'm SO over it! I need to try to enjoy it while it lasts huh?

A fun day!

We had such a fun day today!! Alecia asked us over to swim, along with other friends. All of our kids were in the same kindergarten class together (WE LOVE MS ETHERTON!!). John Mark went on to his first grade class with Taylor and Alex (WE LOVE MRS STACY!!). But all the girls are in Brownies together and Sherry and Mel are the 'fearless leaders' And several are in Spanish class together weekly.
Well, I'm pretty sure no matter when we get together we mommies always spend longer than we plan. Our husbands generally show up after Spanish class at Armida's house (where class is held) since they know when we aren't at home when they get home from work that's where we are...hee hee! So they get to spend a lot of time together too.
I should have known when we went to swim that wouldn't be the end of it.....

so while we are at the pool Armida mentions that she is teaching a Spanish class at "Jump for Joey's" later that afternoon and if we all wanted to bring our kiddos that we got in for $5 and had an hour Spanish class and then could jump til they closed! SOLD!! We chatted at the pool and then Alecia's house til it was only about an hour and a half til the Spanish class...

singing the "Chango Marango"

Mel and Sam

Dylan loving on Joey

So Mel's hubby calls to see where she is and came on to J4J and then Mario shows up too....hee hee!! And Rea says they are heading for Mexican and did anyone want to go...he later admitted he didn't really expect anyone to say yes...ha ha ha!! WRONG!! So 20 of us gathered at La Cocina for dinner...YUMMY and we giggled and laughed and just overall enjoyed being together...Sweet Ms Armida treated the kiddos to Churros since she knows from Spanish class how much they love them!

our table

the crazy crazy Mommies...who's the craziest? Depends on the moment for sure!

in this moment...Sherry and Armida salsa dancing outside before we left!
Truly no alcohol was consumed!

trying to be cool, but falling on each other...we are so old girls!!

got it this time...well, while supporting each other a bit...hee hee!!
too much caffeine I think

before we said good-bye our girls insisted on doing 'the friendship circle' just as they end their Brownie meetings...and above is what Alex and John Mark were doing while the girls did their friendship circle...after the girls insisted that only Brownies did it...hee hee!!
THANKS for a fun day my friends...MaryKyle fell asleep in the car on the way home and John Mark wasn't too far behind!!

the kids snuggling at our house

when Holland would pass Hubby's office, she would go in to give (and receive) hugs and kisses!

On Saturday we headed to the zoo in honor of Holland's 2nd b'day

We had a such a good time watching her ooh and aah over the animals.
