Good Morning?

Ok...first of all...when I posted last night...I mentioned a "drug-induced sleep?" Well...I had it...cough free...much needed rest....other than the fact that I slept with Cade because of his 104 fever....(he feels much better this morning...who knows what was wrong with him?) But....I guess you could say I slept too well...because at 8:30 am I heard my doorbell ringing....Hmmmm..."What is that sound?" I thought to myself...because I am sure many of you know the feeling that I am speaking of...the feeling of having no idea where you are, what is going on ...or why I was in the bed in my daughter's room (which was where Cade and I sacked out-because no one ever sleeps in there....)or why my doorbell was ringing....then the phone rang...and I jumped up to answer it...with my "froggy" voice (I sound really great because of the sickness) and saw on the caller ID...it was Ian's friend....OMG....All of a sudden my mind was flooded with memories of the phone call last night..."I will pick him up around 8:30...DB basketball camp...water bottle....check for registration...."

Yes..Ian was supposed to be picked up at 8:30 to go to DB Basketball Camp (the high school our kids are going to attend is hosting BBall camp this week) and his friend, Tyler, was picking him up this morning....Needless to say, Ian brushed his teeth, got his clothes on, shoes, water bottle, and was out the door in 3 minutes flat.....only to find that he left the registration check on the counter in the kitchen....So, I called Tyler's mom, and she told me she would tell them I would bring the check in when I pick Ian up....Ok...This whirlwind of a morning....could only get better...right?

Ok...time to get off here...getting the kiddos ready to go and register for the summer reading program at the local public library...going to be fun...Macey and Cade are excited about it... Hope everyone has a great day...I know that mine can only go up hill from this point.....=)
*Update***Ian just brought me the mail....and our church directory picture came...Thought I would share...Not too bad...We haven't had a "traditional" portrait taken probably since the last directory...so I am fairly happy with it(even though it is a little off center)...I made sure we all color coordinated...and that Macey covered up my "fat arms"...ha ha..

Sounds like a great morning! Lovin the photo!

Great family picture. I laughed when I read that about fat arms. Bruce has me all paranoid about fat arms, too. He's a punk, though. :-) I need to go get our mail to see if our picture is in there. Spencer got sick again a minute ago, so we're hunkering down again. Clay has his b-day party this Saturday and we really need this junk gone without another person getting it. Ugh!

Explanation for sleeping in Macey's bed:Cade and I slept in Macey's bed last night so we wouldn't be too crowded in my bed...I didn't want him to get too hot, but I wanted to be close to him, in case his temperature went up again....

Hey...I wish we had gotten our picture! I don't think ours turned out too well or at least it didn't on the computer when we looked at it. Cade is wearing the same shirt Davis wore...ha! Did you get your directory too or do we pick those up at church?

Hope you are feeling better. Love ya.

I know exactly the feeling of waking up from deep sleep and not knowing whether it's the doorbell, the phone, or the rapture happening.
That is a great picture and just to show you what a terrible photographer I am ---I would have never noticed that it was off center because most of the pics I take look just like that.

Girl, you are SOOOOO invited to come see our new house. The problem is that it wont be done for a few months, but I would love to show you my new closet (flip flops and all).

Jennifer said...

Funny story. I hope you tame the rottweiler cough soon!! I also hope little Cade is feeling better.
Your family picture looks good...I like the colors. I hope we get ours today.
