Celebrate Good Times.

I’ve spent a lot of time this week getting our house ready for John Henry’s birthday celebration.  My parents arrived yesterday, and my dad had his list of restaurants he needed to hit before departing the great state of Oklahoma.  Daddy Bryan arrives this evening. 

We decided to make the weekend a family affair for the most part, and John Henry didn’t seem to mind scaling down his bash as long as Optimus Prime made an appearance on his birthday cake.  No, I didn’t ask for Kris’ assistance.  The Super Target bakery will do just fine, thank you.

We all get to watch John Henry play his first game of soccer tomorrow morning.  It should be a wonderful weekend centered on a tender-hearted, soon to be six-year old. 

Not much sweeter than time with family.  It’s that kind of love that gives our children a foundation that will weather anything.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children.  One is roots.  The other is wings.”  – Hodding Carter, Jr.

What are your weekend plans?

    Happy Birthday John Henry! Could he be any cuter?? Probably taking the kids to the zoo tomorrow morning and then to a friends couples baby’s shower tomorrow night to celebrate the birth of their first baby boy. I agree though, I’d much rather be in Italy! Have a great weekend!

    Oh my gosh! I cannot believe he is going to be 6 yrs old. I hope you all enjoy your weekend with the family. I wish I could be there to see JH play his first soccer game. He will have so much fun. Give him a big birthday hug from me.

    We are going to watch Jenna run like the wind at cross country. No soccer for us this weekend. But Sat night Doug and I are going to our 20 year high school reunion. Wow, I am getting so old!

    Tell JH Happy Birthday!!!!! AND that Morgan has a soccer game @1pm tomorrow in Miledgville and then we speed home for her to shower and swap to her cheerleading mode and be at the stadium @ 6:30 pm for this weeks football game. MAYBE, we can beat Eagle’s Landing! I can’t believe UGA is playing a nite game and we have to play on Sat nite because Griffin High has a game tonight at the stadium. Tell JH that Morgan’s team has won both games so far….She scored a goal for the 1st game and assisted with a goal last week.!!! JH, WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
