Only two more days till College Football Kickoff for my Auburn Tigers!!
You know I'm a die hard AU fan. Well, the whole family is and we can't wait.
Al & I will be in Auburn Sat. for the game and I can just smell the bbq of tailgating, hear the cheers and take in all the orange and blue I can stand already. It's just a part of who we are.
Hope your team wins this weekend but only if they aren't playing us!!
War Eagle!!!!!!!! Go Tigers!!!!!

Well this is the damage from the outside. A few weekends ago Wendi and I ventured out to have a Yard Sale at her house. Long story short as I can make it, this is what I hear from our house as I was in Wendi's driveway. "BAM!" Then I hear Alex say, "You didn't hear that did you? " Next I hear him mutter something about a door. So I hit it running across the street yelling, "What Did You Do?" (It's not an easy run either. Up hill all the way.) So above is what I see as I come running around the corner. I was so out of breath and just shocked all I could do was lay out on the hood of my mom's van. This is the view from inside. Alex had been "working" on our golf cart for several days getting it fixed and in shape for the AU game coming up. However, he did something to it and it took off full speed BY ITSELF toward our garage door. He says he jumped out to catch it but it knocked him back. Are you laughing yet?? I was NOT at the time but everyone else that saw it did. Later I even caught Wendi's husband Todd secretly laughing inside his house he was so amused at our misfortune. What can you do but laugh at a story like that? Thank the Lord that the door was closed and there were no kids around. He felt terrible about it but well what can I say??
And then the Calvary showed up the next weekend. Thanks Uncle Lumpy #1 for helping Al put up the new door and well #2 for working at a Garage Door Distributor.
Oh the days of our lives! The new one is up now and looks great! We've been super busy lately so I have other posts to make this week and then its off to support the Tigers in their opening game next Saturday! WAR EAGLE!!

Well, here's a fast update. Clara Paige loves school and has done exceptionally well. She even got to paint first one day b/c her teacher said she had behaved the best. She's told us about art, music, the gym, lunch time, nap time and sang a song to us that she learned.
However, she told me on the way home from church Wed. night, that she tripped in the lunch room and dropped her tray AND had to go see the nurse for ice to put on her elbow. She seemed fine and like it did not faze her. I was chokin' back the tiny tear that filled my eye b/c I felt so sorry for her.
So yesterday, she comes home in the extra clothes I had sent to school for her. (They were too small by the way-good job Mommy) My sweet CP had thrown up at school and obviously did not feel very well. I think the teacher must have thought that she choked on her lunch or something according to CP.
All of that so say that my girl is home sick today. She has some kind of virus or bug. We aren't even through the first full week of school and we're staying home sick. Just pray we don't all get it.

Maggie: "Well, I'm going to eat my lunch in the Jelly Bean!"
Clara Paige: "Huh? You mean that thing, Oh, what's it called?"
Maggie: "Oh Yeah, I mean the Jelly Bean Bag."
This is what they were talking about......

I couldn't comment in the post below and it show the slide shows at the same time so I'll do it here and you can scan down to see my Big Girl going to school. It just does not seem like 5 1/2 years have gone by since my Clara Paige was born. She did so great the 1st day of school. And surprisingly I did well too. I had my "Mommy cry" the night before. The letting go part is the hardest however, I am so very proud of her and can't wait to see how much she learns this year. Alex and I both are happy with her teacher and think the school year will be a blast for our Clara Paige. We love you sweetie and you'll always be my Baby Girl!!!!
So, moms out there, if you've already gone through this you know what I mean. If your gonna be there soon, just remember that time goes by with each blink of an eye and before you know it your babies will start school and grow up before your eyes. Just enjoy it and love each and every moment of their adorable lives. I look forward to the future that lies ahead for my girls and our family even if it hurts inside a little bit every now and then. It's worth it!!!

They are so adorable and tiny. It makes me miss having a little baby. I do not want another one however. I'm just so glad I can re-live the twin memories as Rachel lives it with her twins!
CP holding Josh, I think.
My mom and Gracie making GooGoo faces at Josh, I think.
Me, CP and Mags with Nate, I'm pretty sure.
CP and Mags with Nate. Oh I don't know which one it is. I forgot. I sure hope Rach is marking her pictures. One thing that was hard when my girls were infants was figuring out which one was who in pictures.
First day of School tomorrow....More to come soon!
