Busy with no pictures :(

We have been busy bees here. Saturday we really needed to be in a million places at once. Hubs left at 4:15 AM (!) to go to Tuscaloosa to the UT/Alabama game. I won't even bore you with the details of the tail-kickin' that UT received. The kiddos and I headed to C's school to work at the Arts and Crafts Day from 9-10. Our job was actually to man the prize table, it was an easy assignment, I think I'll sign up for that again next year. Then I needed to be on the road to Murfreesboro to a wedding, but I managed to eek out another hour for C to stay and play the kids activities. There was a big bouncy thing and AP screamed loud enough that they bent the rules and let her in too. I think she was supposed to be 2 to get in, but she can hold her own. C actually won a prize ticket at the bean bag toss, he's got aim. I was worried that I was going to shell out dollar after dollar for tickets and he wasn't even going to walk away with a prize as the games were really geared for kids a little older. But, alas, we did end up with a little pinball game...I shudder to think about how much that little game really cost us. Then we headed over to the market area and joined in the mass chaos that was the fight for clothing with their school name or logo on it. Some of these parents go crazy! I don't really understand what the big deal is, but I did manage to get C a cool hoodie. There were no adult sizes left in anything. I remember it being this way when I was there in school as well. They should really just order more, but I think they like to see everything selling like hotcakes (how fast do hotcakes really sell?). Then my aunt came through and met me at the school and took the kiddos home with her (after working a night nursing shift, she rocks). I finally headed to the wedding that was an hour away. By the time I got back to get the kiddos we just had time to eat, bathe, and go to bed. Hubs made it home right before bedtime. It made for a very long day.
