Girls on the Go

Girls did great sleeping in the same room last night- not a peep out of them. Might have made a noise this morning, but they were both where we’d left them last night. Went to church, actually got there a couple minutes earlier than usual. Milly, Graelyn and Callie were all in the same room. Went to Atlanta Bread after, then Barnes & Noble for a little bit. Girls and Daniel napped when we got home (in separate rooms). Amanda and Jessica went out, Ben and I watched Centurion. I stayed awake, but took a cue from Jessica and decided to take a short nap afterwards. We all went back to Mayfaire to let the kids play at Brilliant Sky …

Dotseys, Lambeths and Warkentiens

Went to help Robin move in to Blake and Stephanie’s garage apartment. 90-something degrees. Got it done pretty fast as there were seven people helping altogether. Talked with Blake for a couple minutes. Lambeths had arrived when I got there. Ladies and Daniel were at the store, Ben was watching the girls draw on the patio with chalk. Graelyn was shy with me but opened up later. Took my shower, ate lunch. Spent some time outside. Kids played, took naps shortly after. Amanda and Jessica went shopping, Ben and I watched Immortals on Netflix. Well, he did. I fell asleep. Kids played in pool and with basketball goal. Ben and I went for a jog. I think he slowed down …

Milly’s Third Birthday Party

Spent the morning finishing getting ready and setting things up in and around the house. A while back I tossed something over the fence by the driveway and it broke the top of the fence in that spot.  Dad switched it out with another one from the corner hidden away behind the trees.  Great idea, I never thought of that.  Looks so much better now. There were a lot of people for Milly’s party.  So many that I think it would be unfair for me to try to name them all because I’m sure I’d leave someone out.  Pretty much everyone who was invited came though.  We served Costco pizzas cut into squares and cupcakes. Everybody trickled out.  Milly played …

Pandemic Masons

Went to the store three times: eggs and chocolate chips for waffles; raisins, chips and beer; corn and lima beans. Put Milly down around 11.  She was acting horrible and almost got her first spanking. Michael came over around 11:45.  I played one game of Loot with him and Amanda (I won) then Warkentiens showed up.  Ladies went to Costco.  Milly was up about 12, right as Amanda and Amy left.  Sort of played with Eli. Michael taught me and Nick Pandemic.  A co-op game and we lost. Duke at Georgia Tech game was on too.  Duke got up big early, five point lead at half, won 81-74, but it was close at the end.  Ryan Kelly hit 14 of 14 free …

Christmas Day 2011

Woke up this morning at 5:57 and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I played quick Lux Touch, a Risk clone on the iPhone. I dominated it, so I knew it would be a good day. Got up and updated this site.  Amanda was up at 7, Milly shortly after that.  Brought her downstairs and the first thing she was was a large My Little Pony named Twilight sitting in her chair facing the steps from across the living room.  She saw the pony, saw that Santa’s cookies and milk were gone, then saw Wonder Pets in her stocking. We opened presents.  Toys for Milly, tops for Amanda (one won’t work), hat, scarf and running shoes with a tracker to measure distance …
