Happy late Saturday Morning! Whew! Yesterday really wore me out! It was one of those days where everything happens on top of each other so you feel like you are in six places at once, but it was ALL GOOD and I feel SO BLESSED!!!!
I will just give you a quick run-down of my day:
8 a.m. I leave my house to drive the 21 minutes to Kimberly's to pick up my grandson, Liam. On the way home we make a quick trip around Kroger to pick up some groceries and get gas. Liam has discovered there IS such a thing as a strange face, so bursts into hysterical tears when only 3 feet away from me down the check-out line.
10 a.m. We get home and Ben helps me bring in all my groceries and Liam. Mark comes home and I put Liam down for his morning nap while I get a shower.
11:30 a.m. Jessica drops off Cohen & Jaxon so she can run some errands in Mt Vernon. I fix lunch.
12:45 p.m. Liam gets up from his nap and Jaxon goes down for his nap at 1. They use the same pack-n-play, of course, so the bed barely gets cold in between!
1:15 p.m. Liam and I head back to Mt Vernon to meet Jessica for pedicures. Like me, Jessica is so busy with her photography business she rarely gets a moment to enjoy a little perk like this.
3:00 p.m. Liam, Jessica & I meet Alisa & Cody, Cody's Mom Diane, and Kimberly at Alisa's dr. We all get to watch the 4-D sonogram of Alisa & Cody's coming baby boy, Oakley!
4:00 p.m. I arrive back home minus Liam, who stayed with his mom of course, to pack up to go to the Honduras Fundraiser.
5:00 p.m. My dear Downline, Linda Reaney, arrives with her granddaughter, Brooklyn, to ride back up to Mt Vernon with me to the Fundraiser.
11 p.m. Arrive back home from the Fundraiser!
Can you see why it's taken me until late morning to get around to blogging?????
Here's some pictures of my day (I'm amazed I had time to think to take any pictures! I wish I had taken more!)
Aunt Jessica & Liam at the pedicure!
