Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

Ok...this week could go down in the record books as a crazy week for sure! It's only Tuesday!! Tripp and Alex were both sick over the weekend...which translates to FUN FUN for me! They both felt pretty good on Friday which was nice because we were able to visit with Tripp's brother Joseph and his girlfriend Charly for a while. We really like them together. She seems really good for him and he seems to repond to her ...which for Joseph, is very nice! We had a picture party..again..on Saturday and apparently...that is when Alex started to feel bad. Usually, he is the BEST little child. Well, he had other plans Saturday. Can't really blame him though...I guess I am not the sweetest thing when I am sick. He was super whiney and clinging. I will be surprised if our Christmas picture turns out! I had the BEST IDEA EVER for a Christmas card...which much to my dismay, may not turn out this year. If it doesn't, I will be sure to post it in my blog so the idea stays alive! BUT....if it does turn out....get ready to laugh cuz it is fun-e!!That reminds me...Funny is Alex's new favorite word. Anytime he hears us laughing, he says Funny Momma! and starts laughing with us! Too cute! Anywho...back to our nutso weekend...After we left the picture party, the whole familia took a crazy long nap, which let me just say...does a body good! Alex woke up in a pretty good mood! Then it was off to Carthage for Marshall's first b-day party. It was sooo cute! Alex was really really good. He handled it pretty well when some of the older kids told him he couldn't bounce in their bouncy house..he handled it better than I did! I told him he could play in it and that they could not tell him what to do. Another little boy kept hitting him...which again, he handled better than I did. Marshall is soo stinking cute! I love to watch him walk around! Alex's other cousins were there too...but you know what...I didn't get a picture of all of them together! Nimwhit forgot her camera! Urgh!! Alex spent the night with his Nana & Big Daddy so that I could paint. I was SUPER productive! I got a good bit of my canvas done. Yea for me! See attached picture for what it looks like so far. Saturday night was when Tripp got real sick. He was so blah. Poor baby! I was busy painting so he got loads of good sleep. I slept on the couch...I don't want those germies! When Alex came home on Sunday, he was sick still. From 6 to 11, he had 9 dirty diapers! Yuck-o! He had several more as the day went on. We were big time sad because we had to miss Karleigh's birthday party. I am sure that they didn't want our germies either! He still has the bad diapers but his temperment has seemed to come back to normal. Back to his sweet self. On a side note, my heart goes out to Britney Spears. I know that she did it to herself, but I still feel for a mother who doesn't get to be around her babies. In the same token, my heart goes out to fathers who do not get to be around their babies either. Lose lose situation I guess.

I get to go see my doctor Thursday. Very excited!!! I have been having some issues ever since I had Alex and I am excited about the possiblity of having them all dealt with! Yea for me!

Still have our Dallas trip this weekend. Only now, we have slightly different agenda. Tripp's dad was in the hospital this past weekend with bleeding ulcers. OUCH! He is out now so hopefully we will get to spend some time with Papa DooDoo and Nana D. Kinda funny, but we feel like they call and care about us more now that they are in Dallas. When they were here in Longview, it felt like we hardly ever heard from them. Now they call several times a week. Kinda funny. Guess you never know what you have untill it's gone. Ok...that's gonna do it for this blog. Toodles!
