My Weekend (Meme may have to come a day late this week)

As I mentioned, I went to visit the 'rents (the parents, that is) for my third weekend away from home in a row. :) Tucker and I had so much fun! She really enjoyed visiting with Munner (my grandmother - "Mummers" as T says), my Uncle Rob, Nana and Poppa (the 'rents), Unc (my brother), Britt (his wife), and Carly (their daughter).

Of course (and none of you previously mentioned people be offended), her FAVORITE playmates in Clanton were my parents' cats. She doesn't get to see cats often, and these kitties will actually let her pet them, so they are the bee's knees to her! She constantly quieried as to their whereabouts, chased them, pet them, talked about them, etc. So Tiger, Zeus, and Joe, you made QUITE an impression and I thank you for the joy you brought her.

We also got to visit with my host family from the state Jr. Miss program many years ago when I was in the state program, the Holcombs. These kiddos were TINY when I stayed with them. Now they both have steadies to bring along when we visit (both of whom I quite adore).

We really had a good visit all around! Here's some pics from our trip (and a video of Tucker and Carly breaking it down at the Blast from the Past).

I also discovered a couple of "blog stalkers" from my home town who "enjoy the writing, but miss the pictures of Tucker". These pics are for you ladies. You know who you are. :) haha!

First the video

The Holcombs

"Ah Tarly doe?!?" (Where'd Carly go?)

"Eh she ih." (There she is.)

Carly has some seriously fun things in her room!

And we're pretty fond of Unc, Britt, and Nana as well. (One of them was eliciting this smile.)

Hope you all had a great weekend as well!
Love & Shipoopies,

sounds like a really fun weekend! It's so great when the family can get together! Fun pics! Hope you all get to visit again soon!

{And I usually get Emily's tights from Old Navy, Target and I think I have some from the Children's Place or Gap. She's growing out of most of them, though :( And our Old Navy closed in our town last month, so sad! Wah! haha!}

Oh how fun! I love being with my family and seeing my children fall in love with family, too! Nothing better.

So glad you had a great time!

Oooh, thanks Carrie! They are just too cute! I love a classic look with a hint of funk. :) I'm all over that look. :) haha!

Carrie said...

LOL! emily can sure put together some funky outfits, that's for sure ;) She had on just plain pink tights and a dress with pink flowers for church on Sunday and the teacher asked me if she let me pick out her outfit or if we had a talk from the last Sunday, LOL...I said, No, she still picked it out, it just matches today :) I never know what she'll have on!

Leslie said...

That's fabulous, Carrie! I hope Tucker has that same confidence and sense of funky style. :)

Cute pictures. I am so glad you had a nice time. It is always good catching up and seeing family and friends.

I was so glad to spend more than a few minutes visiting!
