Hello to All - Talk about an amazing weekend. (Busy, but fun) Unfortunately my friends from Duke were unable to come and visit, Debbie wasn't feeling well, and Sue enjoyed her time at home with it raining, then had to race up and see her sweet Tom. He is a fighter, please pray that he can get off the vent soon. But hopefully we can meet up soon.
Saturday was a marathon of birthday parties. We love to see all our friends, and they love to plan parties on the same day! First our friend Maddie turned three, we painted and glued. If anyone needs ideas for Christmas for Addi, Elmer's glue is the trick. She liked to squeeze it out on paper and glue anything. Then lunch with friends, Peyton and Patterson, a little nap with Daddy and then we were off again. Next was our friend Nyla's she turned 5 and we jumped like crazy a Monkey Joes. Addi has the best time with her older friends, CJ and Hannah, by the time we left there, Hannah was our best friend. Unfortunately we had to leave a little early to move on to Owen's birthday. More jumping and gymnastics, he turned 3! Finally we finished the night off at Taylor's Tinkerbell party and I think Addi ruined the movie for everyone because we watch bits and pieces of it everyday (thanks Cousin Wyatt) Addi would say what was about to happen right before it did...ooops luckily the kids didn't seem to mind. Then off to bed. And for those wondering, I did try to leave most partied before cake and ice cream due to the influx of activities and excitement. (Daddy got one good day of rest)
Then Sunday...I let Addi sleep late with Daddy and did church by myself. Then home and off to the Panther's Game. Yes, the whole family attempted to go the game. We got there right at kickoff and left at half-time, but I do believe that was one of all of our best days. Bo was excited, but tired, to get out of the house. That all seemed to fade when his daughter became obsessed with football. "Daddy what is he going to do next," "throw" "run" and then always "Ah Man he got tackled" Thanks to the drunk men beside us, Addi always knew what to yell. I think she just liked that everyone was yelling something. But I really do think she got the idea of it. Run or thrown and then try and tackle him...sometimes we kick. Oh and we all loved the cheerleaders!
Back home for nap time and then I went to see Chicago with some girl friends and Daddy and Addi watch Dora all night before bed.
Ah what a weekend. I think I will hit the nap time today at my house. If anyone want we will all be sleeping around 2:00.
Love to All
Christi, Bo and Addi
