Catching Up

I have been a little behind and have not blogged in awhile. So here is what has been going on. Last Thursday, Parker was sick. He had his 6 month check up on Wednesday. Everything was good. He weighs almost 23 pounds and is 29.5 inches long. Big boy....ready to play football! Dr. Laue saw a little fluid in his right ear so he wrote him a prescription for an antibiotic just in case. WELL....Thursday morning he woke up with a 100.4 degree temperature. I took him with me to work and my dad came to pick him up. He kept him until I could leave after lunch. Parker is feeling much better. Now we have moved on to cutting our top 2 teeth....tough times!

Friday night Braxton and I were supposed to go to a movie with couples from the new ministry we are working with "One Love" to see Fireproof. After some unfortunate circumstances when we walked up to the counter to buy tickets, they were sold out! We were supposed to leading other couples to this movie! Talk about a bad night. Braxton and I left the movie theater and grabbed a bite to eat....we might as well take advantage of having a babysitter. By the way, thanks Brandie for keeping Parker. After dinner we called Brandie and she was willing to keep Parker overnight. So, we went to the 9:45pm Fireproof movie in Cullman. WHAT A GREAT MOVIE!!! Braxton and I cried - pretty much through the entire movie. It puts your life into prospective and made us realize that although we have a strong marriage, there are still things we can work on to improve our marriage. We are a work in progress!

Saturday, Braxton went to the Kentucky vs. Alabama game. Parker and I ran errands in the morning. We bought his Halloween costume - Sock Monkey and picked up a few groceries. My parents called after lunch and asked if we (Parker and I) wanted company. They came to the house and watched the football game with us. Parker was a little shocked to wake up from his nap and see his Papa and Nana. Thanks Mom and Dad for the company and for helping with Parker. AND....ROLL TIDE! It might not have been pretty, but it is still a win. Braxton made it home about 9:00 and I was off to bed!

Sunday we went to church. We had a great service and it was nice to be back at church after missing last week. We (B, P & Me) went to eat lunch. Parker had mashed potatoes for the first time....yummy! We took a nap at the house. I love my Sunday naps. Then I had a meeting for church to go to. How the weekend flies by!

Sounds like yall had a good weekend! I am glad Alabama won. Allen was not too happy about Auburn. Maybe he will cross over (doubt it). I hate yall did not make it to the movie but I am so glad yall did get to see it. Very good movie. One I will be buying when it comes out on DVD!

Sam and I ended up going to see the movie in Trussville..We LOVED it!! We had a free movie ticket we needed to use by the 10th..so, I think Dave Ramsey would have been happy with our decision..:)
