Well, I know it has been a few days since I last posted and busy days they have been. When I last left you we had a list of things a mile long to accomplish. So, let’s get started and see if we can catch up….
First on the list was
Zachary’s baseball game. He loves playing first base, just like his Uncle Scott. I am wondering when his dad will try to get him to follow in his footsteps as a pitcher? The main thing Zachary is to just have fun. He was…
a big birthday cookie, and
And while all of this was taking place Andrew and his 5th grade class were offto Sea World in San Antonio for an end of the year trip. It was an overnight trip…the girls slept in the penguin house while the boys got to sleep under the shark tank. Andrew petting the sting rays
And…Memorial Day weekend goes on with Karen and Kenneth having out of town company. There were babies and more babies and golf games and cookouts….then on Monday Lauren’s birthday present came from Poppa and I and that was a promised trip
to the American Girl Doll Store in Dallas. She got to bring along her friend Melony, who also loves American Girl dolls.
They wanted to be first in line and here they are wishing 10:00 would come real soon!
This is too true at this store.
Not only did Lauren get to go to the American Girl Doll Store, she and Melony got to purchase a new doll. Their choice was Charisa, the 2009 Doll of the Year. After the purchase, they took them
to the beauty saloon at the store and got their hair done. Wow…to be a little girl again.
Now, Lauren was pretty sure she wanted to spend all her birthday money in one spot and
that she did. Sort of reminds of the scene from Pretty Woman!
Now, it was off
to lunch at the Galleria and then
home to try on all those new clothes for both mom’s and dolls. Can’t have too many look alkies when it is your best friend!
Tuesday was suppose to be a day to recover from all the weekend activities and excitement, but it was anything but…there was a doctor’s appointment, errands, laundry, and
the spring storm that rolled through bringing 3 rounds of hail along with it. When all was said and done
it left the roof covered and
the car covered with leaves from the trees, but not one hail dent. We ended up with lots of hail and lots of rain, but no damage…how lucky can we be?
Next thing I knew it was Wednesday and time for the scheduled knee surgery. I arrived at the surgery center on time and they took me right in. Things were running ahead of schedule and it wasn’t long before I was off to meet up with Dr. Hunnicutt. When I woke up he had finished his job and
this is the band-aid I was wearing and will be wearing until Saturday night. It isn’t too hard to walk around in and there is no pain. Mark is a great nurse and is taking real good care of me. And, thanks to all of you that said a prayer during surgery yesterday and for all the calls to check on me. How great it is to have friends and family like all of you.
I am going to leave you with this last picture and thought…Mark and I are at home by ourselves. Not even a neighbor is home. And…
