Louis Dean and I do not get up early in the morning without a really good reason!!!
The quads had their end of year school program at 9:30 this morning so that counted as a really good reason! Trystan, Kailey, Harrison and Logan would not know what to think if MeeMaw and Granddad did not come to SEE them perform!!!
I took dozens of photos and a full dozen videos but I spared you in just posting ONE video and a FEW pics!!! Logan was the start of the show - as my blogging friend, Linda, would point out!!
She knew all the songs, all the words and all the actions!!!
Trystan was tired and thought the whole thing was nonsense and Harrison was charming and cute!
Kailey told her mama the other day that the teacher told them if they didn't remember the WORDS just do the OCEANS!!!! Translated that meant 'MOTIONS!!!'
I do so love these kids!!!
They have personality!!!!!
And they dearly love each other!!!
My dear Amber and Mike and the quads!!
This is SUCH a sweet family and I thank God every single day for them!!!!
SINCE we got up so early.....and I told Louis Dean
I don't want to go......as in get up early and GO somewhere!!!
(LD went in his music room and played this as I was getting ready!! He DOES have such a good sense of humor!!!)......................
anyway! I suggested we stop for breakfast at Mama's Diner!!!
We did, indeed, get an attitude adjustment with our cups of coffee and omelet for him and toast for me! I'm on a diet, remember??? I MAY have had some breakfast potatoes but I SHARED them!!!
On our way back home, we stopped at the Goodwill on Midway and I scored big with two tops and a purse. I keep buying purses even though none of them really work for me!!!
This white cotton and lace tablecloth is now gracing my bathroom as a curtain on my make up bench!
This Vino vignette is on the lower wall in the dining room.
We came home and by this time my toe was really bothering me. I should have taken Advil or something when I got up - but I didn't. I make a glass of tea, took a dose of Advil and picked Ruth Ann up for a trip to our local Goodwill and Aldi!
These are three metal plates or trays and are reproductions of famous 1790's porcelain saucers.
I also bought some seasonal textiles and I admit it! I was too tired to take pictures!
We take turns bringing dinner on art class nights and Sherry brought some delicious steaks and cheese dinner rolls - compliments of her niece, Tori!!! Tori is a chef in training and we are the lucky recipients of her work!!! Sabrina brought a marvelous salad and I had a rum punch for our cocktails.
Sabrina is done with her Bluebonnet painting!!! WELL done, I might add!!!
Ruth Ann has one more session on hers but it is looking very good!!!
While WE did art - LD and Sherry worked on the gazebo 'walls.'
These are railings from our very first gazebo we had and Louis Dean has used it in the subsequent ones since! They add 'walls' which I love!!! They also make it so much sturdier!!!
It's been a good day. I had to come home early after our ALDI trip and rest with my feet propped up.
As I write, my feet are feeling better but I know I am in serious trouble with them now. I no longer can even walk the 1.7 mile 'snake' in our neighborhood since one slight turn or movement can make it painful to take even one more step. I am looking forward to Thursday when I will see the foot and ankle specialist. When I wake up in the morning, I am going to take Advil first thing!!! I have things to do!!!
For tonight, though, I am fine and I close with this plaque I bought at Goodwill.
I will be hanging it in our bedroom tomorrow and I believe this tells our story!!!
No matter what - Louis Dean and I are living our lives 'happily ever after!!!'
I believe this with all my heart!!!
