Wild Weekend, Part 2



If you haven't read Wild Weekend (the previous post), you may want to scroll down and read it first, this is the continuation.
These first pictures are from Saturday morning - I forgot to mention that our day started out with a visit from an examiner for our Life Insurance Policy. Will and i had to answer a billion questions about our health and give blood and urine samples - all without having eaten within 8-10 hours (which for me is a HARD task) and while keeping 3 rowdy children contained and quiet! I finally took them in the living room and we had a pajama photo session!
****Wilson's eye appointment went great (well, he wouldn't say it did - having 4 drops put in each eye, then having blurred vision for half the morning is not his idea of "great") he has "intermittent something" - I can't for the life of me remember the term, but in lay terms, one of his eyes drifts outward when he focuses on things at a distance, but his eyes are looking "together" much more than they are apart. So, at this time we will not do "the straightforward, simple surgery" to strengthen his muscles. We are just to watch him and come back if it seems that the eye "wanders" more than not. For now, NO SURGERY - thanks for any prayers, I know mine were answered!



Now, onto the rest of Sunday, after the end-of-year cheerleading/football party at Bryant-Denny we left early to go to Emma Claire's Fall Choir program at church. She did AWESOME - she scored a front-row position close to all her friends!!! This little girl sure loves to sing!
AFTER the hour-long Choir program, we got the boys out of the nursery and set up our tables at the TAILGATE PARTY (at the church). Will's dad picked up a pizza for us in between the cheerleading party and the choir program and we ate and chased the children around for nearly 2 hours. There were jump castles and obstacle courses and a huge rock wall. I couldn't believe Emma Claire climbed all the way to the top, but she did -- that's my girl!!!!
Daddy and brother cheering her on!
Henderson was quite content most of the time in his exersaucer - he's growing so fast!!!
Big Al made an appearance, which Emma Claire was exuberant about - Wilson, not so much, but at least he's not one of those who screams his head off the entire time Big Al is around - he just likes to keep him at a "safe" distance.


(I'm not exaggerating when I say she absolutely LOVES Big Al!!)

(notice the "clinger")

All in all it was an AWESOME, but busy weekend -God has blessed us so richly with great friends and family, a great church and a great preschool. Last night we went to the Fall Festival at the childrens' Dayschool. It was a lot of fun too - a post and pictures to come at the end of the week or Monday. Emma Claire gets to dress up at her Ballet class this afternoon and tonight we go trick or treating on Sorority Row! All I can say is thank goodness my brother-in-law is a dentist - b/c after this week, I imagine there will be lots of cavity bugs in our mouths - the candy bowl on our counter is filling up quickly - any ideas how to get rid of this without a particular 4 year old noticing????

Kelli,
Bailey and I are driving with Granger and Zetta Grace to Tuscaloosa on Friday. We will be tailgating at my parent's motorhome. They park in the collosium lot behind the baseball field. Maybe we can meet up. Bailey and I will be there UA/AU game without kids too. Glad the eye appointment was to your liking with no surgery.
