Sibling LOVE! They do love each other....they just don't act like it most of the time!

We finally made it to the fair on the last day (after getting rained out on Wednesday). Addi has been talking for weeks about riding the ferris wheel. NO WAY was I getting on that thing so Greg offered to take her (Daddy was out of town). Holley said she wasn't going because she doesn't like heights (my kind of girl), but at the last minute she changed her mind. The first few rounds were hilarious because the look on her face was of pure terror. By the third round, she was smiling and when she got off she said she loved it. Addi wasn't scared a bit and was ready to go again!!

Those of you who know me...know I am NOT a cook. In fact, I hate to cook or even be in the kitchen. I won't even attend a Pampered Chef party because I am just not interested in anything for the kitchen. But since Keith has not been out of town for the last few weeks, I feel like I need to cook (some). Blah! So I have been finding some really cool recipes on Facebook and believe it or not, everyone (yes, even the ultra picky Drew James) has liked them. This was a chicken taceo casserole. It was so yummy! I will post the recipe in case anyone is interested!
Rotel Chicken Mexican Casserole
3 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1 bag of tortilla chips crushed
1 can of Rotel
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 small can of chopped green chiles
1 lb of Velvetta or American Cheese
Cook and dice your chicken. Mix together your Rotel, Soup, Green Chiles, and cubed Cheese. Heat this mixture in a microwave till melted and then add your chicken. In a casserole pan layer 1/2 your chips and 1/2 your cheese mixture. Repeat these layers and top with a few crushed chips. Bake at 350degrees until hot and bubbly. Its DELICIOUS!!!!

Drew is cracking me up lately with his interest in clothes. He is OBSESSED! But seriously, if you think about it.....I created that monster. He spent every penny of his birthday money on clothes and shoes. But like, Jackie said....let him go at it, that much less I have to buy. This is one of his new outfits....he matches from head to toe!

Drew wanted to invite some friends to the mall for a birthday celebration. I told him he could ask about 6 friends.....well, this is how many showed up! He did invite about 3 more boys but they couldn't come for various reasons so it ended up being mostly girls. That's my boy!
This is what happened to Addi's room while I was laying in bed today. I had the gate closed so she couldn't go any where and she was kinda back and forth between me and her oom, playing. I kept bragging on how good she was being. Once I mustered the strength to get up and go peek at her....this is what I found. I wanted to dry. But I didn't really have the energy to so I just went back to bed and left it for Keith!

This is where I ended up tonight. I have been feeling like crap all week, coughing and just plain tired. Tonight I felt like I couldn't breathe so I had to go. I was diagnosed with bronchitis. Never had that before and let me tell you.....it will kick your butt! Today is day 5 of being in bed! Help me!!!!
Note to self: Check your license before each birthday to see if it is expiring. The thought never even crossed my mind until Shirley mentioned it. So later that night (the day OF MY BIRTHDAY....a Sunday) I remembered to check. And yep....it was expired. They are closed on Monday so today I got up early (for me) and went and took my place in line. I was really irritated that after holding a Georgia license for 33 years, I still had to go up there to renew it. I guess some new security thing went into affect a few years ago and unless you have a yellow star on your license (I didn't) you have to appear in person to get the coveted yellow star. Seriously???!!! Actually though, the line looked way worse that it was and only took me about an hour. But still.

We stopped by the park today to snap this pic in remembrance of 911. Drew reused to get out and be in the pic so it's just Addi! Of course, she had no clue what this was all about and wanted to know if we were getting sparklers. I'm glad that her little brain doesn't have to know about terrible things yet!
We were not happy with Addi's preschool so when another school called me with an opening so we decided to switch her. I am so nervous about it and hoping I am doing the right thing. She was so excited, and wasn't nervous about it at all! Here she is on her first day at the YMCA!
Our church, West Ridge celebrated it's 16th anniversary today with a tailgate and fireworks celebration! It was tons of fun! We all got there early and set up our stuff and everyone had the best time. Here is Keith in the cornhole tourney which he was quickly eliminated from...by a 13 year old boy, I might add!

This is another pic from Dragon Con! There was this guy that looked just like Will Ferrell from the movie ELF in the parade. Shannon and I were yelling for him at the top of our lungs. All of a sudden he stopped, looked at us and came RUNNING (I mean running) towards Shannon and got right in her face and I was dying laughing and snapping pics! I have looked at those pics a million times and it makes me giggle every time!
I had the bright idea to go to a Sidewalk Chalk Fest at Marietta Square today! Sounded like some good, cheap fun! The day was gorgeous so after church we set out in that direction! The closer we got to the square, the darker the skies got and by the time we got there....it was storming like crazy. I mean a full blown thunderstorm complete with thunder, lightening, wind....the works. UGGGH! We sat in the car until it blew over and decided to walk around and check things out. Most of the chalk art was washed away but this is just a sampling of what was left! It was GORGEOUS!!! We will try again next year and hopefully the rain will stay away!

Someone told me about a little waterfall not far from home. So this morning we got up and ventured out to try to find it! It is very small but so nice and peaceful! Drew jumped right in .....and under the water. Addi, on the other hand was afraid and kept thinking the big rocks were crocodiles and sharks. Lol....we couldn't convince her otherwise!
This is the outfit that Addi chose to wear today! ALL.DAY.LONG!!! Since we were mostly staying home....I let her wear it. But, Keith had to run to the store and she insisted on going so of course he took her.....in this outfit! Ack....I told him he was going to ruin my reputation!
