Festival of Lights

Saturday night we decided to use a gift certificate I won at work for the county park and go to the festival of lights. I figured this may be the last weekend that this way be the last saturday that won't be crazy busy! 
We were right! There was a decent amount of people but not too many to keep us from enjoying our time. 
We loved seeing all the lights the kids loved it and got super excited at some of the themes ie: dinosaur land and candy land. 

We got out and walked around through some of the trails. Then we rode the carousel since the train was all full. 

We also may have shared 2 funnel cakes YUMMM! 
We were there almost 2 hours then headed home for the night! It was definitely a good end to a very Christmasy day! I can't wait for Christmas!! One of my favorite days!

Some fun and seeing Santa

Saturday was honestly the first day I have felt like myself again. Diagnosed last friday with a UTI and a sinus infection. 3 medicines later, 1 allergic reaction and about 8 days I feel human again! Can we just say that sucked!! 

Anywho we have the kids this weekend and always try to do fun stuff at some point so they aren't just cooped up in the apt all weekend. Plus if you know me I hate being cooped up too. 

So saturday we made plans with my sister and the girls. First stop was chik-fil-a for some lunch and playing. 

Then we headed to Toys r us for them to all pick our Christmas presents. They all got to pick something out and the adults survived (barely). Closer to Christmas you will not find me in that store. 
We parted ways with Shannon and the girls and we went over to the mall. The kids wanted to see Santa so we decided before the lines get too long this was the perfect weekend to do it. 

We walked right up, waited less than 5 minutes and got to see him. They took a really cute picture so we bought it. I think with me around with a camera constantly they are starting to get used to having their picture taken. 

We shopped a little bit then they played at the little playground and we headed
Home for a bit. More fun to come later that evening!

Blah blah blahhh

The title pretty much reflects my feelings for this past weekend. 
Thursday I woke up with cold symptoms. Friday I left work early because said cold symptoms were making me miserable. I went straight to Nason Medical to get some medicine. They tell me I have a UTI and a sinus infection and put me on an antibiotic. 

Saturday I felt like death most of the day. Oh and apparently antibiotics can make you stomach sick so basically it's like a stomach flu on top of everything else. Fun right? Not! 

So saturday night was my small groups cookout and I had hopes to go so in the morning I made a super yummy butterfinger cake. It smelled amazing!! 
Dave ended up talking me into trying the party to at least take the cake. Side note a piece of this cake is probably a million calories so we were not keeping it!! Anywho I went and lasted an hour, I felt aweful but did enjoy being there and chatting with my friends for that hour. Dave was right and it did feel good to get out the house. I know they all had so much fun so hopefully next time I can actually stay the whole time :) these ladies are so great and I really love getting to make new friends. 
The rest of the night looked like this. Like my new slippers Dave got me? So warm! Speaking of Dave I have to give him props he took such good care of me. Even went to walmart at 10pm for somethings I needed. Thats love people! Lol annnd he dealt with my whining! 

Sunday we watched tv most of the day then went to my house to hang out with my family. Even though I felt crappy I loved being with my family and getting a few cuddles from my Kodie boy! 

Today is another rest day but hopefully tomorrow I will be back to work and all better! I need to amp up my vitamin consumption apparently because my immune system sucks! 

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Happy Birthday Izzy

Today we celebrated Isabelle turning 5 which was actually thursday but we partied today. 
She had a barbie theme for her birthday and my sister did a really good job making the table so cute. 
Mmmmm pizza!! 
Izzy enjoyed her pink cupcakes and TONS of gifts. She said her favorite was her barbie camper which I would have flipped over as a kid. 
One very blessed kid, great gifts from her family and friends. 
Shannon and Izzy! 
Nene and Izzy! 
Grammy, Susan, Shannon, me, Christine, Krystal, Theresa and mommy! Love these women! 
Sistas and my nephew in Krystals tummy! January can't come soon enough. 
We spent a lot of time outside they even put up the jump castle. 

Izzy is a lucky girl and we had a blast celebrating her 5th birthday!! The kids were wiped out when we left! I must say I am pretty wiped out too!!

Cars, parks and fun

Today has been a busy one!! I feel like we did so much today. 

The day started pretty chill with some story time in bed. 
Then we all got ready and headed to the Mt. Pleasant Riverfront Park to play. We got surprised by a free car show which we all really liked. 
Firetrucks were there and even gave a demonstration which involved the ladder going super high holding a fireman. 
We saw some really old and cool tractors that the nice men let the kids climb on. 
There were tons of corvettes the kids liked the ones with the flames. 
My favorite part was the really old cars. It's not everyday you get to see cars like this especially in such amazing condition. 

We walked back over to the park for a bit to play. 

We played for an hour then headed home due to an unmentionable accident. We grabbed some lunch first then went home. 

After a bit at home we went to a playground at park circle. 

We all enjoyed this "zip line" thing at the park and then Alayna jumped down. She basically bit the crap out of her tongue when her mouth hit her knee. So our park trip quickly ended. 
There was a LOT of blood so he wanted to have it looked at. We both assumed a doctor really couldn't do anything because of how small the bite was but hey better safe than sorry. 
She was a trooper and let the doctor look with no fight at all. Most kids would be scared but she was good to go. He said it's pointless for stiches in a tongue plus hers would be fine on it's own. His only suggestion: popsicles! Haha she was fine with that. 
We went to wal-mart for a few things and Dave got me pretty flowers :) Logan helped him pick them out. 
We fed the ducks some bread when we got home, had spaghetti for dinner and relaxed. What a day!! 

It was fun despite our hour of craziness! 

Tomorrow should be even more fun!! I just love weekends!!
