Homework Humor

OK, so I hate homework, but the other night while helping Macki with math we got a good laugh... There was a section on her worksheet that said something about explain how making a table could help you solve this problem.. I have to admit Anthony and I were both a little confused... We didn't know if we were supposed to have her draw a table or write about how to make it.. Anyway, while we were discussing this Macki got up off the couch, went over to the dining room table, threw her hands up and said "OK, I'm looking at the table and I still don't get it!" LOL Tony and I busted out laughing! It was so funny!! Kids take things so literally!

Change of plans.....

Well, unfortunately we had to reschedule our trip up north :-( With dad's surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, Andrea's pending surgery to repair a torn ACL and Macki's cough, it just seemed like a better idea when everyone was well... I have to say I'm disappointed!! We are having friends over tonight to watch the Bama game, so that will help! ROLL TIDE!!!!

Steve and Andrea decided to go to Charlotte, NC to visit her mom since we didn't get to go to Chicago... Piper went along for the ride, but Kaydi aka GIGANTOR is staying with us! She is only 4 months old, but the size of a monster.. She still has that puppy mentality and does not realize how humongous she is!! She is the sweetest though and I love having her around except in the middle of the night when she has to go to the bathroom and it's FREEZING outside!! It really cooled off last night! Definitely not pajama weather! lol

Well, I'm sitting on the front porch planning my day and thought I'd update you all.. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!!

Ready for Chicago!!

We leave Thursday for Indiana to visit my family.. I could do without the dreaded drive, but it'll be worth it once we are there!! Friday morning Memaw will be cooking us breakfast!!! It's definitely worth an 8hr drive for her cooking.. Anyone who has never had my Memaw's homemade biscuits and gravy, you're missing out!!! Friday we will also head to the Brookfield Zoo and then in to the city for dinner. Of course we will eat at Harry Caray's... Karis and Macki think they haven't been to Chicago unless they eat a New York strip from there! lol Saturday lunch at Schoop's (an awesome 50's style burger place) with the family... Saturday night some College football..... ROLL TIDE!!! Finally on Sunday we will eat at the BEST pizzeria in the entire world Gelsosomo's.... If you are ever in Northern Indiana, I recommend dropping by!!

Back on football.... I am SOOOOOOO excited it is football season again!! That means parties and parties mean ROTEL!! haha Also, it means fall is close!! I can't wait for it to cool down some! Plus all the fun activities that come in the fall... Carving pumpkins, Tate Farms, Haunted houses, Halloween and homemade soup... I can't eat soup in the summertime.. Way too hot! lol

That's all for now.....

Where did Summer Break go???

I can not believe that my baby started 2nd grade yesterday!!!!! It literally seems like yesterday we were attending awards day and she would be at home with me for the Summer.. When I was a kid it actually seemed like we got a summer break. Now it's like you blink and it's time to go back to school!!! Oh well, back to the schedule of homework, dinner, bath and in bed by 8:00 for Mack Mack :( Work is still a little slow.. Starting to gear up for football season! Woohoo!! Hope the Tide wins another one so we can make lots more $$ We are headed up north to see my family Labor Day weekend, so we will miss the first game... No biggie.. We are going to the Brookfield Zoo while we are there. I have not been there since I was in 3rd or 4th grade! I'm excited to see if it's all that I remember it to be.. Well, I guess I should get back to work now...

It's been a while...

Well, let's see..... Life has been on a pretty even keel lately.. It's summertime so I'm only working 3 days a week. That's always nice!!!! WooHoo!!!! Macki has started competition gymnastics so Mondays and Wednesdays she is tied up for 3 hours!!! I was worried that 6 hrs a week would be too much, but she is LOVING it!! She has her splits on both legs now and is learning new things each week!! I am enjoying my Mondays and Fridays off!! Last Friday Macki and I went to Spring Valley Beach with Kasey (my sister-in-law) and the kids... It was really fun except around 1:30 it started storming so we had to leave.. Macki brought her new BFF Ashton home with us and they swam in our pool for a while, so she got a full day of water play in after all!!

We went to Smith lake earlier in the month.. I had never been there, but now that I have I recommend going!! It is BEAUTIFUL there!! I wanted to buy the house we were renting and stay! lol

Steve's wedding went off without a hitch!! It was beautiful!! The forecast said rain all week, but it never did rain that day!! Thank you Lord for answered prayers!!! They left for Jamaica a week later on their honeymoon.. They are back to the real world now though! lol Andrea bought Steve a puppy for his birthday! She is an absolutely adorable golden retriever named Kaydi Phoenix... She is named after the late great Kelsi Phoenix! (We miss you very much)

Well, I guess that's it for now.... Hope you all have a great week!!!!

Upcoming events...

Ok, so I am horrible about keeping this blog updated! lol So much time passes that I forget to update everything.. I'd be on here a week if I did that! I did forget to mention in my last post that ALL the rennovations are finally completed!! We have hardwood floors, new tile and new carpet.. Plus a brand new custom back door!! everything looks GREAT!! I have pictures somewhere, but I don't know where they are right now.. I'll try to remember to post some pics later on...

Let's see... Steve and Andrea's wedding is only 2 1/2 weeks away!! This past weekend mom and I hosted a lingerie shower for Andrea.. It was so much fun except that the weather kept a lot of people from coming.. There was only 8 of us, but we had a blast!!! Things are really coming together for them.. We finished up the programs today and are doing the engagement pics on Friday.. It'll be here and over before you know it!!

I am sooo excited... I am starting cake decorating class tonight!!! Sandy and I are doing the groom's cake for the wedding so we decided to take a class.. i'm nervouse because I am not the least bit artistic!! lol Hopefully it will go well!! I'll take some pics and upload them soon!! This could be very entertaining.. Me and Sandy together is always a trip! HAHA

Macki has not had a sinus infection for about 2 months now!! YAY She seems to be doing great and it looks like removing her tonsils and adnoids will be avoided.. For now! haha

Well, I think that is about it for now....

I forgot to say that Macki finally lost her other front tooth.... Eating again was the culprit! haha
