It was a normal Friday here! I love 'Normal!'
Louis Dean, Mother and I had lunch at the Cotton Patch Cafe.
We ate and I mean we ate GOOD!!
I had the margarita - which was delicious!
Since the drink was loaded with calories I had a small cup of chicken tortilla soup -
gotta balance it all out!
My pretty Mother!!
She ordered a BIG bowl of Chicken and Dumplings.
As I told the server what she wanted she said, "BIG! BIG!"
Then when the food arrived - it was a normal bowl. I had a cup which held about a CUP!
Her bowl may have had a cup and a half.
She frowned and said, "I wanted BIG!!!"
The waiter brought her a second bowl - at no charge!
She is so cute!
Louis Dean had the DINNER portion (NOT the 'lunch' version!) of chicken fried steak, French fries and fried okra WITH gravy! He ate every morsel!!!
After visiting with Mother we headed back home to visit the quads.
They are one year old today!!
The BIG Party and Celebration will be next weekend but I could NOT let this day go by without seeing Amber and the babies!
Trystan liked the Strawberry Sour Cream Pound Cake!
One slice fed all four!
I try to take some cute little something every time I visit to entertain the babies.
They got a kick out this little guy!
A baby in a BAG!!
Kailey has an eye for the camera!
She PAUSES for a photo op!
We gathered all the babies for a group picture - which is not as easy as it would seem!
Amber snapped and snapped away and I got ONE good one!
Who was the culprit??
Louis DEAN!!! Amber had to keep telling HIM to look at the camera!
We came home happy - and tired!
Last night I went to bed early. No problems from falling yesterday that a good night's sleep didn't fix!
Louis Dean, on the other hand, stayed up late allowing ME to go to sleep ahead of him.
PLUS - I took a nap on the way home since Louis Dean was driving.
So by late this afternoon HE was exhausted!!
He can RUN but he can't HIDE!!
While I worked in our bedroom changing out my closet to spring/summer clothes -
HE napped in the guest room!
For over 3 hours he NAPPED!!
He feels a LOT better now!
We are holed up in the den watching the news.
So many storms and tornadoes!
I hope and pray all my friends are okay!
I know many of my blogging pals live in the areas in the news tonight.
I end this evening remembering this day a year ago!
My super duper daughter!!
She DID it! She GREW the babies at the risk of her own life and has done everything in her power to be the best mother possible! FIRST time mother, at THAT!!
Praise GOD for these babies!
Thank YOU for your prayers and encouragement during the whole journey!
The babies look so different today than they did at birth!
Can you tell who is WHO?
