What a weekend!

It was fun filled and super busy not to mention frightening!

Friday night Anna and I were on our own for a while. Chris had to go help the youth out with some stuff. So we filled our evening with cleaning and taking pictures.

When her Daddy got home he read to her while I finished cleaning the kitchen floor.

Saturday we had a great time. We took Anna and my neighbors 1.5 year old son to an egg hunt and to the park. Some of our friends invited us and we hadn't seen them in a while so decided to go. It was a lot of fun although wow the difference between Anna and this little boy were so vast it was wild. He isn't talking at all and is still very wobbly on his feet.

That afternoon we met some other friends at the Bamboo Farm for me to take some family pictures of them. Let me just tell ya'll I did a great job for them. Of course they are so cute together and have a most adorable little son that they made my job easy.

After taking tons of pictures we decided to go have dinner together. We are new friends. We met at church and as the wife said we are in the "dating" stage lol. You know how it is when couples first meet they have to make sure they will all "gel" together. Well, we really did! We stayed at the restaurant more than 2 hours. In fact the staff had to hint that they wanted us to leave lol. We are 10 years older than this couple but they have been through a lot and are pretty mature for their age; either that or we aren't so mature lol. Hmmm, maybe it is just a combo lol. Either way I look forward to getting to know them better and hanging out more often.

During this time my neighbors ex-girlfriend, the mother of the little boy we took with us to the egg hunt decided to call and give me a hard time for helping out her ex by taking care of her son. He got called into work and she wouldn't or couldn't keep him for whatever reason and he asked us to help him out. Apparently she changed her mind at the last minute but he was already in the process of giving him to us. She was not very happy about this and when I refused to talk to her about it she called back and left 2 messages. Not very nice messages. This is the same person that sat in my house and told me she was going to key her ex's car if he wasn't home and then went and did it. After getting home we realized that there were tornado warnings all over our area. The wind was whistling and it was getting scary. We put Anna to bed, with me in there with her. Around 12:30am our tornado alarm at the school went off and we got Anna up and huddled in our closet until almost 1. Anna slept through it but it was rather terrifying for me and Chris. Oh and our power had been out since about 9:30pm. It finally came back on around 9:30 am this morning. Or at least that is what the power co. said since we left at 8:30 to go get breakfast we can't be sure. My dear "friend" that left the 2 messages on Saturday called and left another one this morning telling me to stay away from her son! Guess what I think I will. I don't need all of that. Oh and for my friends and family that use my phone, my number will be changed tomorrow so I will send out an email to you and let you know what it is. If you don't get an email send me one and I will be happy to send it to you!

Well, I am late getting Anna off to bed and she and her Daddy are getting impatient so I will come back tomorrow!


  1. Sounds like you've had a very full couple of days! I'm very glad you're safe from the tornado (both the environmental one and the human variety!)

    I'm working on the cookbook tonight. Make sure to let me know if you ever change your website or email before summer, because that's how I'll contact you.

    Have a good week.

  2. Ugh. Drama. People like that piss me off. Having her own issues is reasonable, but using her son as a pawn in this crazy game? Not cool.

  3. OMG! What a crazy lady! It kills me how people like that do not take the best interest of the child into consideration. And how about talking it out like an adult. It sounds like she is upset with the father and taking it out on you. She should be thankful for your help! I'm so sorry you had to deal with that.


Y'all come back now ya here!
