We have had a fun and crazy week it seems. 

Wednesday evening we headed to Buna to see Adam's Family.

Thursday we ate with my family at noon.  It was different this year.  Usually it is My Mom's Parents and her brother and his family and my siblings.  This year, Christoper stayed in Utah (usually the normal - it's hard for him to get down twice a year, however, he did it last year with two weddings), Caryn's family stayed home and Kevin's family spent it in the hospital with their three month old who was getting antibiotics through an iv due to salmonella poisoning getting into his blood (he was there ten days).  Court and his family came and Kari and Matt were there for a while.  Kari (has a job at a local tv station) had to go to work.  My Mom's Parents still came, but didn't stay all day like normal and her brother and his family stayed home.  It was weird having such a small group at Mom and Dad's house.  Caryn and her daughter and her friend came down that evening to spend time with me! (well with all of us, but I like to think when she comes to visit she comes just to see me).

Friday I got up at 6:30 showered and got ready and Caryn and her friend picked me up and we met Mom in Beaumont and we all went shopping together.  We shopped until around 5 or so.  It was a lot of fun.  I didn't buy too much - just a few clothing items for Parker.  I wish I would have gotten more, but I have no clue what to buy for Parker or for Adam or for Adam's family Christmas Party or for Kevin's family (which is everyone on the list but our parents - luckily Adam got a gift for both of our parents already).  I came home tired and not feeling well.  I had no voice by the end of day.  Adam met his parents halfway and Parker got to spend the night with them.  It was the first night he has had a sleepover.  I was a bit nervous when Adam and Parker left.  I know that my inlaws can take care of him, but it was just nervous to not have him in his room at night.  All mom's know how I felt.  I snoozed on the couch (or tried to - I kept getting phone calls and texts).  I picked up some nyquil and hoped to sleep well without worrying to much and to hopefully feel better.  I didn't sleep well, but I didn't worry either.  I knew he was in good hands. 

Saturday we got up and went to see Blind Side with Kari and Matt and it was such a good movie.  Then we headed to Buna to get Parker.  I fell asleep on their couch.  Then we headed home.

Adam has been great to take care of Parker.  I still have no voice.  It's as though it's getting worse and worse. 

Parker is walking more and more every day.  I've hardly seen him crawl all day.  He is getting faster and faster! 

Life is crazy and seems it will only get crazier with Christmas only weeks away!
