Me and Isaiah sitting in the tent in his room!
Our first game of the night was Candyland! A favorite of Isaiah's - here he is smiling away!
And finally Isaiah wouldn't let us forget to bring his pictures from his night stand in the tent with us! He has a picture (from L to R) of Ganny and Pops, he and Pops in their Bama gear, Ali, and he and Brian when he was a baby! Side note - no favoritism was shown in the selecting of these photos by myself - only Isaiah, he chose them, they are his photos on his night stand - notice my picture is no where to be found! A lot of mornings we will find these photos in the bed with him! How sweet - especially the one of Ali.
Thanks for looking at our pictures! All else is well in the Morgan household! Getting ready for Levi's birthday on Saturday. I can't believe he will be 1 - that is completely crazy! We are going to Atlanta to spend his birthday with my family for the weekend. This is a big birthday year for us - I just turned 3o, Levi will be 1 next weekend, Brian will be 40 in December and Isaiah will be 5 in Feb. All milestone birthdays for us! Oh and in other news of interest - Levi decided to eat some chalk tonight - green chalk to be exact! Brian and I walked in the playroom and there he stood aganist a chair, eating some chalk - chunks in his mouth and green all over his lips. I freaked out of course and started screaming thinking at any moment he was going to stop breathing. Brian assured me that Crayola wouldn't make something that would actually KILL a small child, even if they ate it - not even sidewalk chalk?? No, he promised me! Maybe it will just make his poop bright green - that would be really gross. Funny!!!!!! Everyone have a great week!!
So, it's been over a week since I have posted - sorry guys! Life is sometimes busy with 2 little people to deal with. Although I always have LOTS to post about, I don't always have the time to sit down and do it. Come to think of it, I shouldn't be doing this right now. I should be folding clothes, or washing more clothes, or starting dinner, or watching the kids or something else but I am choosing to do this now. So, on to the actual post............
RUGS, RUGS, and more RUGS!!!!
As you all know, Brian and I both work at High Point University. Well, apparently some generous donor who owns an oriental rug company donated LOTS of rugs to HPU. The school had tons left and decided to let the employees each select a rug for FREE! Now, we aren't talking about walmart rugs now, we are talking about REALLY nice and REALLY fancy rugs!!! I was thinking what in the world am I going to do with a fancy rug in my house, much less 2 fancy rugs, nothing else in our house is even close to fancy. Anyway, Brian and I got to each select one and we think we did pretty good. We got one large rug that measures axp. 8 feet by 10 feet and then we selected a runner for our foyer area that is slighty to long measuring 2.5 feet by 12 feet long. They are both really pretty and really nice and really fancy and I am sure really expensive, so I surely hope no one spills juice or something on one of them. Maybe one day we will have a fancy house to put our fancy rugs in! For now, we will just enjoy the rugs!!!! Enjoy the photos below - as you can see Isaiah and Lucy couldn't seem to get out of the photo!!
Brian organized a little lunch for me at my favorite Gianno's with about 10 of my favorite friends from work. It was fun and of course yummy food! Then Betty (my co-worker) made me a delicious red velvet cake. It was soooooo good!!!!!
Brian, Levi and Isaiah took me out to dinner at Fire & Sticks (a local Japanese Steak House). It was so good of course. When we got home and got Levi in the bed we had some cupcakes from the Sweet Shoppe. Isaiah and Brian put a candle on top and I got to blow it out. Then he wanted a candle on his to blow out too - funny! Anywho - my 30th birthday has been so wonderful. My mom and dad, my sister, Brian and the boys and my friends made it so fabulous for me! Brian has been earning huge brownie points - and he turns 40 at the end of this year so I have got to come up with something fabulous for him for his special day!
And we can't forget that Levi's 1st birthday is in just a few weeks. Enjoy a photo of me and the boys tonight after we got home (below) and also Isaiah bringing me a cupcake (top)!
As I am typing right now, I am sitting on a plane flying home from Alabama. What a weekend it has been. Let me first say that my husband, sister, parents and friends are the most fabulous people ever! They all surprised me with a trip home for my 30th birthday. My actual birthday is tomorrow (8th). Here is what happened:
No new things to share really, it has sort of been a blah week here. Nothing super exciting. Levi has been extra grumpy (which means he has been acting like a normal child) because he is getting his 2nd top tooth - or at least that is what we are assuming. That combined with NO sleeping at school makes a not so happy little guy. We will get through it and hopefully he is on the mend.
Both boys have lovely bruised on their foreheads. Levi was pulling up on his table in his room and wacked his head on it. And then Isaiah and I were playing a friendly game of "tug of war" with his pajamas - guess I won since I ended up with the jammie pants and Isaiah ended up hitting his noggin on a metal bar and now he has a nice bruise too. Sad times - so we totally look like a battered family right now, therefore no pictures to post.
We were BEYOND thrilled about the football game on Saturday. WOW - what a game. We had no idea that they would do so well. Seriously, it was awesome. Ironically, watching football games is one of the things that makes me miss Alabama the most. My family, when I was growing up, always went to BAMA games and it was a huge deal. Saturday mornings, on game days, usually started with a playing of YEA ALABAMA on the record player (oh yeah - the record player, can you believe that) of the Million Dollar Band performing. AHHHHH - the good ole' days. Anyway, so watching football games and the excitement I feel in my heart when the team runs out on the field just reminds me how much I miss home and so wish I could be there. But life goes on and THANK YOU LORDIE for ESPN Game Plan so we won't miss a single game this year - HOORAY!!!!!!!
Oh and on other bad news - our stinkin' vacuum cleaner broke. UGH! So we go to walmart to replace it. Seriously, how can there be a vacuum that is $20 and one that is $400. It sucks the dirty and for us dog hair and cheerios off the floor. I just don't get it. Well, we bought the el-cheapo one because hey, we have 2 kids to feed so we can't afford the fancy one. We got it home and realized why it was only $20 because it DOESN'T REALLY WORK. It sucks up some of the stuff (and I use some quit liberally) but for sure not all. Great - guess we should have opted for the fancier one. Oh well - who likes dog hair everywhere - come for a visit!
Alrighty, off to bed for now. Brian took Isaiah to an away soccer game tonight and no doubt they are having a great time. Levi is fast asleep and has been since about 6:30 tonight (remember me mentioning the no sleeping at school) and Lucy is wondering around licking the floor for any dropping that might have been left over from the 2 kiddos. Oh and I did catch Levi feeding - YES feeding Lucy some cheerios off his highchair tray earlier tonight. No wonder she won't leave us alone when we are eating - on of our own is feeding her for crying out loud.
Guess I did have alot to say, maybe someone will read it! Bye for now!!!!!
