Trying super hard to be a big boy!
MaryCollis, Penn, and I hit the road just after breakfast Friday and arrived at 11. Emily immediately came over, and we had a great visit while the kids napped. Lauren got in around 7 - just as I was bathing the kids. We put Penn to bed and let MC have a little late night fun (read: 8PM) with her LaLa.
Lazy weekend with my loves
Mac and Tom came over Saturday morning and stayed until after lunch. Tom wasn't even walking last time I saw him, and he was running around throwing things and acting like a real little boy. After lunch we took the kids shopping but didn't buy anything. It's just been a long time since I went to any of the shops, so we wanted to peak in. That afternoon LaLa painted our toenails and we "went to Khaki's house to pick strawberries" about a million times. I guess that's a new game MC has come up with. We ordered out from the Veranda for dinner and watched "The Big Bang Theory" for two hours before going to bed.
Good loving from Aunt Mac

Sunday I cleaned out the linen closet with all of my old Mary Kay stuff in it, and I nearly threw out the 15 tiny stand-up mirrors and the thousands of eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss, eyeshadow, foundation, and blush samples... but then I had a thought. MaryCollis can use those when she plays dress up! Score.
I rummaged around upstairs and found some things to put in our new booth at Southern Antiques, I loaded the dishwasher, made the beds, and packed the car. We went to Emily's on our way out so Liza and MC could play together. Plus, I needed to try some of the new Beaux et Belles clothes on her to see about sizing. We had another good visit, then we hit the road. We went straight to Gamma and Doc's when we got back to town because MC needed a fix.
Today was the kids' first day back at daycare, which means we are that much closer to school. Ugh. This summer has been non-existant, and I'm just not ready. At all. But at least I got in lots of visiting before I start work next week. Now I've got to start focusing on MC's 3rd birthday party!
