Busy Week, Busy Weekend!

Hey, guys!  Sorry I'm posting late. I had an extremely busy week at work and then went straight into a busy weekend.

We were able to see a lot of family this weekend.  On Friday, Morgan went to stay with her Honey and PaPa (or so that was the plan...ha ha!).  Her Honey picked her up from daycare early that day, and they spent the day shopping and visiting family.   I wasn't surprised when I called them and Honey was already worn out (and it was only 4:00)!  Shopping with a toddler (who wants to get down and walk everywhere) is an adventure in itself!

So while Morgan was with her grandparents (and her Daddy was in Gadsden too), I took a much-needed trip to the hair salon (hallelujah)!  And I'm not sure if it was because I was doing nothing but sitting in the salon chair (not doing laundry, not unloading the dishwasher, not picking up the living room), but I COULD NOT stop thinking about Morgan!  I missed her terribly -- probably more than I did the first time she stayed away from home.  So imagine my delight when Danny came home with her that night.  Yep, that means she did NOT stay the night away from home - the grandparents sent her back!  Morgan wore poor Honey Gran out.

So the next day we were back in Gadsden.  We went to see Cousins Harolyn and Jasmin who lost their father (Jasmin's grandfather) last week.  :-(  Then we went to see Tommie, Danny's cousin/best friend/cards partner, who recently came back home to Gadsden.  Tommie's dad makes the best polish sausage and salad with crabmeat in it!  So Danny went to play cards with Tommie, and I went to eat!  Ha!

And apparently Morgan went to play with Spice, Tommie's mom's dog.  At first, all she wanted to do was poke at Spice's eyes (???).  Then she wanted to play with Spice's water and toys.  Poor Spice still followed Morgan wherever she went.

Spice wasn't sharing the toy!

Instead of staying in Gadsden, it was a perfect opportunity for Morgan and I to stay with my mom (who lives just 30 minutes away).  Morgan had a ball there because my mom has lots of toys at her house.  She has two other granddaughters (now 7 and 5) who she's always kept tons of toys for. 

Morgan was OBSESSED with the mini broom and threw a fit when I didn't let the broom in the bathtub with her.  My mom joked that she's surprised that Morgan even knows how to use a broom because her mother does not! Tsk tsk, Mama!

I had to post this pic because apparently I'd just scolded her about something.  How do I know?  This is the look I get sometimes.

I used to make fun of my mom because she would take a gazillion pics of my nieces (to the point where it was annoying -- does that sound like someone you know?) and did cheesy stuff like measure their heights everytime they would come visit.  But when I had my own child, I realized just how awesome she really was about all of that.  Here she is getting Morgan's height for the first time.

This is Morgan in the playroom/girls' room. 

She was in love with this chair for some reason.  It's a bit too tall for her, which made it so funny to watch her try to get in and sit down.  She would usually fall over before making it up there, or get up there and sit dangerously close to the edge like in this pic.  And then she started insisting on STANDING in the chair, which made me go hide it for the rest of our visit.

My mom noticed that Morgan wasn't too interested in baby dolls.  She has one or two at home, but she usually just gives them one kiss and throw them down.  All she was interested in this day was poking at their eyes.  Where does she get this eye-poking thing?

Then on Sunday, we headed back to Gadsden to eat at Danny's Granny's.  I've mentioned before that Morgan has lots of cousins on Danny's side.  Well, I got a chance to snap some shots of them that day!

I'm trying to take pictures, not realizing I'm about to be shot with an arrow!  Haha!

I had so much fun with Little Tracy.  When he realized I was taking his picture, he gave me a little show.  He'd hide behind the tree, and then poke his head out.  TOO cute!

My kid had a ball just walking around pushing a wagon.
I guess she's not big enough yet to want to play with the big kids.

Little Miss Karleigh -- look at this face!

And her big sister, Kinleigh.

Awwww, riding her little brother around.

The oldest of them all, Haleigh.  She was a toddler when I came around, and now she's 10!  Whoa!

Morgan can now show you HER nose sometimes (and not just yours LOL).

Kicking the ball.  All of her big cousins play soccer, so maybe she will, too.

We had a great weekend as you can see!  I am officially counting down the days 'til Spring Break, which will be here in a few weeks.  I'm excited already!  We have no travel plans.  I would be perfectly fine staying in town, organizing my house, playing outside with my little one, taking her to some kid places, reading a book -- you get my drift.  A vacation to me doesn't always have to involve a destination.  But being married to my husband, you just never know.  I remember earlier in the summer he mentioned us going to Switzerland to visit his cousin Cyretha for Spring Break.  I swear to you, if we had passports (something that's been on our to-do list forever), he would be planning that trip RIGHT NOW!  Now because that trip would be a LITTLE more expensive than a last-minute road trip (ha!), I can honestly say that there will be no overseas travel for us this Spring Break. But I can't rule out anything else.  For example, there was that year that he decided we should go visit our friends Martha and Kent in Tampa, and we were on a flight the next day.  And then last year, we were THIS CLOSE to buying a plane ticket to New York City and leaving the next day.  And there have been other times when we've done last-minute traveling.  Yes, I married a crazy man that thinks that traveling is as easy as going down the street to the store.  I have to admit, though, it's one of the things I love about him.  I have to remind myself of this very fact, though, when I'm going crazy packing (because I'm the one that packs mine and Morgan's stuff - he just packs his little man bag and is ready to go)!

Anyway, sorry in advance if this post has typos or is all over the place -- I'm trying to finish it during my lunch period at work since I won't have time to do it this evening.  I hope everyone is having a good week! :-)

  1. Looks like you guys had a busy and fun weekend. Morgan is going to be a little cleaner one day, isn't she?! Now about this last minute traveling.. I am so not good with that kind of stuff. I am a total planner too and that would send me into a frenzy. Maybe I need to be a little more spontaneous!! Cute pictures!!
