The ELF!

Friday, December 2, 2011

Becky and I decided to have our families elves arrive together! I think this might be a new Christmas tradition!

Becky cooked spaghetti and I decorated.

 Christmas plates for our children
and a list for Santa


As the children were eating dinner - the doorbell rang!!
There is Joy and Chippy!
With notes from Santa

 Sweet friends
Joy and Chippy even had "snow" on them!

And the Pre-K teacher read The Elf on the Shelf!

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Starting tomorrow, my parents' house is undergoing a major renovation - the KITCHEN is being upgraded. Or as my Momma said, "I need a two butt kitchen and a gourmet kitchen!" Well, she is gonna get it! Hopefully renovations will be complete by February 2012.

We celebrated Thanksgiving a couple weeks early because the kitchen is coming down....

Sunday, November 6 to Tuesday, November 8, 2011

After Kimber's party - and as guest were leaving - Kimber started to wheezing. I gave her a breathing treatments in hopes that it would help. On Sunday morning, Kimber said that it hurts to breath so we were off to the Newnan ER.

Kimber's oxygen levels were around 89 to 91 (normal is around 100). After several breathing treatments and IV steriods her oxygen levels never improved. Newnan then transported us to Egleston. After several hours in Egleston's ER the team of doctors made the recommendation that Kimber needed to be on Helix. In order to be on Helix you have to be admitted to the ICU! After a nigh in ICU we were moved to a floor room for a night. We were able to come home on Tuesday morning. Kimber is fine and you would never know anything happened by Tuesday afternoon. As we were back to work/school on Wednesday!

Thank you to all the people who called, texted, facebooked, prayed, sent gifts, made us dinner when we returned home, wrote my lesson plans for my class...

 Kimber getting a breathing treatment...she is never this still
...on me - I have the same outfit I wore for 3 days!

Elgeston was wonderful! As was Newnan! - We are fortunate for both hospitals!

Thanks to friends and family for our hospital gifts for Kimber!

We were able to break away from the room for a snack!

Delta Lambda ZTA!

Saturday, October 22, 2011

While I was a student at Georgia State University I became a Sister of Zeta Tau Alpha...one of the best decisions I have made! This October the Delta Lambda chapter celebrated the 50th anniversary. Saturday afternoon started with a tailgate before the GSU Panther game at the Georgia Dome followed by an evening of dinner and drinks. I was so excited Adam and I were able to be part of this celebration.
