A Very Special Friday!

Fridays are always special but THIS one was even MORE so!!!
Last night Mike installed my very own car seat! They bought it for me some weeks - maybe MONTHS ago-
in anticipation of me going solo with one of the quads!

TODAY was THE day!!!

Logan was a natural choice for the first ever trip out!
She is my 'Mini Me' and doesn't stray! She pretty much sticks to me like glue and I LOVE it!!
She is all decked out with cute clothes, sandals and sunglasses!
I called her 'Hollywood' all day long!

I was super excited!!!! I actually thought I might cry - but I didn't want to mess up my eye make up!

I don't think Amber cried either! However, this WAS the very first time one of her babies had left without Mommy or Daddy being with them!

Logan was perfect on the nearly hour long drive to Fort Worth!

She was treated like the celebrity that she is at the salon!!

Next stop was IHOP! Mommy had packed a super cool diaper bag with everything including an activity packet! Logan started off in the high chair.......

then decided she wanted to sit closer to me! No problem!

Mother was so happy! Logan's visit was a total surprise!

Mother smiled so big when I remembered to take our traditional Friday pic together!
She said, "THANK you!!"

The other three missed their sister.....especially Trystan!
It was a grand day and I hope to take each one out in time to come.
Perhaps someday I will work my way up to TWO car seats!!!

We returned home this afternoon.

Remember how we have forgot the cat a time or two?
Well, today she immediately jumped out of the car and went straight to the front door!!
She was happy to be HOME!
Our Maggie seems to have lost a lot of weight lately. She still eats and drinks, pees and poops normally.
Still, I am calling the vet on Monday to take her in for a check up.
Just to make sure she's okay.
I'm in the sewing room as I write and I can hear Lucy snoring in her kennel.
Guess she's happy to be back home, too!!

Louis Dean and I spent part of this evening sorting through four HUGE tubs of cookbooks that have been hanging out in the den since the water heater busted - long ago!
We whittled them down to three shelves in the bookcase instead of four.
Now we need to find some places to go tomorrow to look at cabinets for the utility room.
We will be staying home for awhile and hope to get some things done!
There's always ONE more thing to do!!!

Obviously you can't be sure without an exam and bloodwork, but Maggie looks hyperthyroid to me. I thought that before I even read your description of what is going on with her. Hope she feels better soon!

Thank daughter had a cat with thyroid issues and was on medication. She lived to be 19 years old. Thank you for your comment and I will be taking her to the vet next week!

what a special day!!!! love little Miss Hollywood...

Stacey said...

Oh I bet that was a fun day for all of you! I love reading about your days Linda. :)

Bernice said...

So Happy for you. Those little ones love you so so much,and now to be able to spend one on one time with Me Maw is a very special time.
Thanks for sharing:)

Deanie W said...

So happy Miss Hollywood got to visit Aunt Deanie & Uncle Charlie! She is precious:)

Ginny said...

A milestone for sure! Ours are just getting out of car seats! Nothing is more special than a whole day with grandma and grandpa, and soon they will be begging! I know you made her feel so special! And a quad needs that every now and then.

Jutta said...

Priceless! No wonder you felt like crying - I would have had too. Hugs.

Vee said...

Precious cargo there! What fun it will be to take them in turn on a bit of a jaunt. Your mother will love it, too! Amber may even get excited about it! I had to laugh when you said that someday you'll work up to two. I only last year got to that point at ages 6 and 7. I think you'll get there long before I do. By the time they're six, you'll probably take them all as you do for Mimi camp.

'Twas John and hanging out watching the videos last night. We had such fun hearing them chatter about tea and Trystan with her cute agreement was precious. Harrison's "more tea"... such a gentleman!

Sandra said...

what a fun fun day you had and Hollywood fits her to a T.... she looks so cute in her seat and your mother is positively beaming...

Susie said...

Linda, Since I have been following your blog...I have seen that there have been very few days that you and LD have not worked or helped out some one. So when you say you are going to take a few days, I almost laughed. You two will find something to do besides relax. LOL. Enjoy some down time together. xoxo,Susie

Angie said...

I was so excited to see you and Logan going solo! I bet that really brightened your Mother's Day too :)

Kelly said...

I really enjoyed seeing pics of you and Logan going out together for the first time. She was all decked out for her trip wasn't she? I'm sure as much as it helped you enjoy your day it helped Amber a bit too. One less to tend too. That can always be a nice break. Hope that you're able to get everything fixed at home soon.
