A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That!

I'm glad Blogger is back up & running! I was having withdrawals! LOL Of course when it did finally come back on, I couldn't do a post at that time, the boys were up from their naps.

This post is kind of a catch up of the past week in a half.

The day of Lauren's birthday she had dance from 3:30 - 8:00, so I brought a cake up for her & her friends to share.

Yeah, oh so thrilled I'm taking a pic!

Rylan loves looking out the window & watching all the kids over at the park.

We had cake for Lauren this past Wed. night. We decided not to have a bigger birthday party this year since we will be throwing her a big graduation party.
Red Velvet cake! It was Yummy!!

Yup, I only got 2 pics, she wouldn't of course let me take anymore.

I had to snap this cuz it was just too cute!

My friend came over the last 2 Tues. w/her daughter, Gracelyn for some fun at the park!

This is her cute little dog, Alexa. She's only like 3 or 4 pounds.

Last night I took them over to Craneville school park where Laci goes to school.

Rylan was obsessed w/playing in the dirt.
I love this pic!

LuLu all smiles.

And last but not least....
LuLu asks me earlier today if she can go across the street to the park because her best friend Katie was over there. I gave in & let her go. About 20 minutes later she comes in the door crying hysterically because she was going across the monkey bars & lost her grip & fell on her arm. I was like great the one time I let her go w/out me & she gets hurt! So, I gave the kids dinner & then took her down to the ER. I knew it wasn't broke, & I didn't see any swelling but she kept insisting it really hurt to bend her arm. They took xrays, it looks like it's not sprained either but I have to find out for sure tomorrow from the doctor's office. So, the ER doctor wants her keep this sling on it all of tomorrow just to be on the safe side. Her & I are really hoping it's not sprained because the dance recital is in a few weeks & she will be so upset if she couldn't do acrobatics! It's her favorite! Please cross your fingers for her!!

Have a great weekend everyone!



  1. I hope her arm is OK! My daughter broke her arm twice. :(

  2. Poor baby! My daughter fell off the monkey bars literally five feet from me and broke her arm! *sighs*
    Now I am hungry for red velvet cake, Allison, and it's all your fault!!! It is my daughter's very favorite cake, and one of mine :D

  3. Oh no! I'm sorry she got hurt, but don't feel bad, it's bound to happen, right??!! LOL! Looks like Lauren had a great birthday and those cakes look yummy! Hope you have a great week!
