So Darrell was given tickets to both the UT/FLorida game and the Titans game last weekend. Instead of sitting around the house as a football widow, I packed up the kids and headed to Memphis. I never miss a chance to see my folks and now Uncle Paul is living there so it is even more fun. As a bonus I got to meet Uncle P's new "friend." Lots of fun playing games and eating yummy home-cooked food with the fam and Sue Sue.
I had to post this next picture of Jackson, because on the last blog I had a picture of him playing with a mermaid. This trip Gee and Grandaddy bought these cool blocks and Jackson made cars and swings and lots of boy things. Yeah! (insert sigh of relief from darrell)I saw this dress on clearance at Target and thought it was soo cute. Then I put it on her and she totally looked like an old lady wearing a MooMoo ( I have no idea if that is how you spell those things).

Silly Kiddos

Lauren, our neighbor had a birthday last night and we were invited over for cupcakes-YUM! Jackson and Linley love playing with them and it is really fun to have a couple that Darrell and I like to hang out with while the kids are going crazy. Yes, my son is playing with a "wormmaid." And yes, Darrell had a fit. Eventually, Brooks brought down some Powerrangers for Jackson to play with. Linley pretty much likes any male that will giver her attention. She loved Brooks holding her.

Linley got her first taste of a biscuit this weekend. I try hard to keep bread away, so she doesn't become a carb addict like her mom. She loved it on Saturday and today she won't eat it. Who knows.

So we finally put our house on the market. (Great time-we know) The good news is that we aren't in any major rush to sell it, but we did have to work like dogs to get it ready. Here are Jackson and Darrell staining the deck!

Great Grands and Skate Night

Grandma and Grandpa from Florida came by to see us last weekend. Jackson was looking forward to their visit all week and wasn't disappointed when Grandma brought him a jumbo size bag of Airheads. Linley wanted nothing to do with Grandma as she won't let any woman hold her, except for me of course. On the other hand, she had no problem letting Grandpa hold her.

Last night my coworker, Amanda and I, organzied our employee event at Brentwood Skate Center. I haven't skated in years, but after a few laps around the track I was feeling pretty good.
I was feeling pretty good until we played LIMBO! I should caution all of you adults who still think you can roller skate limbo the way you did when you were 12-Trust me you can't and my sore tailbone is proof:)

Labor Day Weekend

So we had a great time at the lake this weekend. Jackson is becoming quite the daredevil on the screamer. He takes some pretty good bumps and turns these days and comes up asking for more. We definitely have some water babies on our hands. We are thinking next year he will be ready for the Mickey Mouse skis.

His rides are getting a little rough for Grams, but she keeps hanging on.

My husband is still a stud at 30-look at that spray. Wish I could show you a picture of me making that kind of spray but after three years off from the slalom, I was happy with just getting up out of the water.

The boat puts Linley to sleep every time. Look at the uncomfortable snuggles.
