My day off with Kaylen Yesterday

Kayley was too cute yesterday. We ran errands all day but we did stop at Chick-Fil-A to have some lunch with friends and play on the playground. I just wanted to put some random pics from the day on here for you all to see!

Our Scary Weekend

Well, we are glad to be on this side of the weekend and I would like to start by saying that God is so good! As most of you know Jeff (Allen's dad) went in to the hospital on Thursday night with a numb left arm and chest pains. Friday they were getting ready to release him and he had an irrigular heart beat that finally corrected itself. If it hadnt, they said that would have killed him. So they then said it was imperative that they find a reason why his heart was acting this way. There was a problem with his kidneys that prevented them from being able to do the heart cath to check his heart. I think it was that his creatin (spelling?) levels were too high. All i know is that they finally did the cath on sat morning using a high quality dye and not much of it. They were hoping to find something... they did! A 95% blockage to one of his arteries. They had to transfer him from crestwood to huntsville hospital and put a stint in that afternoon. So he came home on Sunday and is still recovering. Allen is taking the day off today to watch kaylen and I am going to try to take a day off this week to help allieviate the stress of watching kaylen as well. Speaking of Kaylen, she was a trooper all weekend. I am attaching a few photos of her at the hospital. The cutest thing she would do all weekend was she would grab her Papaw's finger and try to pull him out of bed... she wanted him to play with her. (of course i didnt get a pic of that!)

BTW... Jodi, this post's for you! Next time i will dedicate a more upbeat one to you but since you have been requesting one... you get the dedication!!! :)

Labor Day Weekend

My weekend started off AWESOME!! I had a blast in Nashville with my two very good friends, Emily and Hollie. We hung out at Opryland Hotel, caught a chick flick, and enjoyed a fun day of shopping. Here are a few shots from out weekend:

So on our way home I started to get a headache. It eventually got soo bad that I ended up in the ER getting sick in the waiting room bathroom - yuck! They gave me a shot that knocked me out for days! I still dont feel quite right. So I slept Sunday away... it is as if it never happened. What a crazy few days!

The next picture is Kaylen and her "snack"! She just HAD to have the ENTIRE box of honey grahams! she didnt eat them all but wanted them all on her tray! Kids!

Monday we went to the lake with our friends. it was a fun trip and the kids were cute as can be! Kaylen and Jonah were eating some grapes on our way home. Kaylen was sooo sleepy she ended up laying down right there on the floor and didnt wake up until around 8 pm... boy was i in for a long night!!! We had a small hiccup that evening... the explorer somehow ended up in the lake (well, the front passenger tire went off the ramp and we were stuck) it was a very narrow boat ramp. anyway, an angel tow truck happened to drive by and see us... and for a fee he helped us out. but we didnt have to wait for someone to get there! it was a huge blessing! it wouldnt be a boat outing without a small mishap!
