Talk to the Hand

The yellow hand, that is.... We had a good time today painting birthday cards for Will's mom - her birthday is not until Friday, but I know how the week can get, so we planned ahead of time. The children had fun and Wilson actually did get some paint on the paper!!!!







Henderson has good moments, but is still running a very low grade fever and sleeping a little more than usual and wanting to be held constantly,s o not 100%, but definitely on the way.




Yesterday we all went to the Alabama/Kentucky basketball game and then headed to Birmingham for an engagement dinner with my sister and my parents and her fiance's parents, grandmother and brother and his wife and baby. It was at an authentic Italian restaurant in Alabaster and it was so much fun. It did emphasize why we do not EVER take Wilson to restaurants - at nearly 2 1/2 he still doesn't do well. When a child is in no way entertained with food and has the energy of a 6 week old puppy, you might as well hang it up for sitting still for 2 hours. At one moment I looked up and Wilson was in the KITCHEN - I think the cooks were about to have a heart attack! He is so little and fast that I kept thinking he was stiing with someone else and I lost him, but only for a moment! In the end he was satisfied with the AWESOME cake Matt's mom bought (a miniature of the wedding cake Katie picked out) and sugar packets - YES this Dietitian mom let her children eat sugar straight out of sugar packets at the table!!!! Whatever works, right?
I did not have my camera at the restaurant, not that I could have taken any pictures anyways, so pre-game pictures will have to do!
Henderson and Emma Claire were perfect - they both like to eat and can sit still for more than 3 seconds. It was a great time of family, food and fellowship. Katie is marrying into a wonderful family and I am so excited for her!
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Pavlick for an awesome dinner and night!

Ellie Kate always runs into the kitchen at restaurants!!! She is also still horrible eating out. I hope Henderson continues to feel better.
