We had a great weekend that ended with a crazy twist!! K went with us to the ballgame Friday night and he had a GREAT time. It was so much fun taking him with us. He has never been to an American football game so he had lots to see: cheerleaders, music horns and a clown! Oh, and not to mention - the Clay Chalkville Blue Crew - a group of high school guys who wear no shirts and paint their bodies to look like jerseys. It is quite the site to see - especially for someone from Thailand. We stayed at the game until the beginning of 4th quarter. Clay was winning pretty good so it was not much of a game to see. Keith and I decided that we will take him back to a more challenging game. It was incredible to watch his thought process trying to take it all in.
We got home that night to sad news. We had heard rumors of a double murder/suicide in Trussville earlier in the day. We sadly found out that one of the victims was someone that we knew from Huffman. Our hearts were so broken from this news!
Saturday was a cheerful day! All of our family came over to our house for the Alabama game. It was a game on pins and needles but Alabama pulled threw! Mom and I headed off to Gardendale that night for Meghan's final band jamboree. On the way there - we passed several ambulances and later found out that there had been another double murder/suicide in Pinson. What is going on with our world and our city?? These are just too close to home!
Sunday ended up being a busy day. We headed off to Huffman for church and then to a nice Chinese lunch with the family. Keith took Noah home for a nap and Aunt Jennifer and I headed shopping. It had been such a long time since we shopped without kids -- oh, it was so nice!!! After Sunday night church services - while heading home, our ride home went south. We were getting ready to turn onto Service Road and Noah throws up everywhere. It was not a little bit either. It was our first projectile experience!! Keith debated to pull over or keep going - since we were so close to Momma Gena's house. We decided to keep going, so he sped up a little. We pulled in and instantly stripped Noah of his clothes in the drive way. Gigi began to clean him up while Keith and I cleaned the car. Unfortunately, this was one of those times where I did not have extra clothes for my little buddy. Let me tell you --- this will be the last time that I go without extra clothes. I am just thankful that we were at/made it to Gigi's house. Poor Noah, all Gigi had was a pair of 24 month sweat pants. They were so large on him that they drooped half way down his diaper and they were so long that he would slide from stepping on the pants. For his shirt, Gigi put on him one of her white shirts and pinned it in the back. GrandDanny said that he looked like he had an angel costume on. He is my little angel!! ;-) And speaking of GrandDanny, he is worth a million bucks!! We took the car seat apart and washed the liner because it was obviously gross!! As Keith was swapping car seats with them for us to borrow, Keith noticed the gross stuff stuck in different places on the car seat. GrandDanny said that he would hose it off today and sterilize it really well. Wow, I sure do love him!!! As for Noah, we have no idea what made him sick. He did not get sick any more and has seemed to be fine. I think it may have been soured apple juice in his cup. He was running and playing at both Gigi's house and at home. We think he had one little burp/spit up incident at home but it was not much. We bathed him really good and Daddy helped him brush his teeth. He went right to bed after a few minutes of watching "Cars" and snuggling on the couch with Mommy.
He seemed just fine this morning, though he did not each much breakfast, and seemed to make it through the day at school. I fully expected a phone call but fortunately did not receive one!
So, that catches you up from our weekend!!! Whew - what a weekend it was! I did find out that E did want to come spend some time with us this weekend but we missed out. Hopefully she and I can get together and plan something for this next weekend! I sure would love to meet her!!! :-)
