Bloggin Hiatis

I'm not sure that is the correct spelling or the best explanation. I just simply have not taken the time to sit down and share via blog lately...Sorry. We are just plain busy and when we aren't busy, I would rather play with WHG (in the dirt, which is his play area of choice) than play on the computer. And with this warmer weather, I can't promise I will be any better. We have taken the sides out of the jeep and are loving it after a long and very cold (in my opinion) winter.

So, here is my best attempt to catch you up.

I wrote this post a few days after my OOC weekend but, I never got around to posting it. I figured most of you read all about it elsewhere; plus my group pictures cannot be fully appreciated by the WWW (nor by some of the picture participants if posted...they know where I live):What happens with team OOC....stays with Team OOC. Well sort of. You can read about most of my annual Auburn girlfriends a/k/a OOC weekend, HERE, HERE and HERE. However, there are some things that we just can't share with the rest of the WWW. It seems as though my camera was used only to capture the more exciting moments of our trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains with my favorite Mountain Mamas. To say that we had a good time is an understatement. We ate, relaxed, ate, relaxed in the hot tub, talked, ate...oh and we had a few glasses of wine and a few beers thrown in there as well. And let me be sentimental for just a minute...I love these girls more than they could ever imagine and my heart just flutters when I think about how we all met on the plains and the events that have given us a friendship that truly is standing the test of time and distance!!
This sweet man was waiting on the porch for me when I got home.

Next...WHG went to help cousins Will and Clay celebrate their 2nd birthday. WHG loves to watch Mickey Mouse Club House and do the "hot diggity dog" dance; however he was not getting close to the real thing. He would watch them from across the skating rink...but one move toward him and he was climbing my leg or Mama Quette's!!
"Here they come Quette...don't go anywhere....maybe just pick me up!!"

Two weekends ago, the three of us took a little day trip to the coast. It was a beautiful day and WHG ran around like a wild man in this grassy area for an hour!!

We are good til you drop! I wish...daddy put a hold on that real quick!

We went to a Dinner Mystery Party hosted by Katie and Parrish King. It was Western Themed and we were instructed to arrive in character. I will admit, I was a bit skeptical of this event (mostly because I had to dress the part and convince Hunter to also), but we had a great time. Katie made a wonderful meal and we were definitely the most entertaining group of "criminals" I have ever met! Hunter played the role of Cheif Breaking Wind... hahaha

Last weekend, we celebrated the beginning of Holy Week. We had an Easter egg hunt for church and WHG "helped" cover the altar with palms.A few of the Egg hunters paused briefly to let me take their picture, Britt, Grover, Asher, WHG, and Parker.Not sure why we have our fingers (whole hand) in our mouth, but it is becoming a habit that Mama does not like. Britt Cotton (yellow shirt) held WHG's hand to show him where to go. WHG loves him some Cotton boys! Britt and Parker are so sweet to him and he wants to do everything they do!

Whew, I am tired of typing. We are gearing up for an exciting Easter weekend. Lots of family in town to help us with a little project. We are going to celebrate Aunt Hayley, John and Aunt Kat's Birthdays (it is Aunt Kat's sweet 16--I am a little sad that she is growing up on me!). Then on Sunday, we will celebrate the Ressurection with Sunrise service at Grandaddy and Mama Quette's and Dr. and Nancy Eldrigdes', Easter Cantata during our regular church service, and then the big Jones Egg hunt in Opp!!
