Full Friday with Five

My Friday Started out with Jack being dropped off at my house at 7:30 am. His mommy and Abby were going on a trip for the day and daddy was working. Jack is a delight to watch. You just give him snacks and food all day and he's a happy little guy. Of course, I try to never overfeed him...NOT.....We decided to go check out one of my favorite stores "Once Upon a Child" since they were having a big sale. Abby loves to wear pretty dresses to church, so I like to see what they get in from time to time. And Jack is growing like a weed and needed some bigger clothes too. So, after we did a little shopping, we went over to visit Aunt Steph and cousins, Noah, Carter, Gray and Ivy. Jack played a while and then got a little cranky with the teething thing, so we loaded up and headed back to Mimi's. He took a little nap and when he woke up I decided to make him lunch, and that is when my heart skipped a beat.............
Jack was standing in the entryway looking out the front screen door. I turned to go into the kitchen and when I turned back around after hearing the door close, Jack was NOT standing there anymore. I ran to the door and opened it and there was little Jack, face down on my porch. He had fallen out the door. I could not believe what I saw. I scooped him up and tried to see if there were blood or bumps and of course he was crying and scared. There was not a scratch or bump on him. All I could say was "Thank you God for putting a pillow under him to land on"....It's the scariest feeling in the world. Never assume that a door can't open when leaned on. I felt like a bad Mimi, but just thankful that he wasn't hurt.
He stayed until around 3:30......Then around 5:00.....Noah, Carter, Gray and Ivy came over while Steph and Jeff went to dinner and a movie.......We ate pizza and of course I made Carter's favorite mashed potatoes and gravy.....


I could not get Ivy to smile for the camera....She loves to play with the magnets on my frig. The lady with the pumpkin on her head is actually named mimi. It was a magnet set that Steph gave me that she found at a specialty store.

The boys are use to playing with legos, micro machines or G.I.Joes at my house, but their uncle Nate took all of his old toys home to put up for his son when he is old enough to play with them one day. They were lost with not knowing what to play with. So, I got out the play dough and they were thrilled. Gray said "mommy throws away the play dough so Ivy can't get it" They each created a Birthday Cake for me, with real candles. And we even lit them and made wishes.

Carter created a cake using star and tree cookie cutters....For someone to say just minutes earlier that he was bored, looks mighty happy here. I'm glad I remembered I had play dough in the cabinet. He said what he would really like to play with is a big Jeep to ride in with a big battery....hint...hint...

Noah created his cake using the cookie cutters as the decoration....I think I lit his candles 5 times for him to keep making the same wish....He said he wanted to make sure it came true. Mike yelled out from the other room "is something burning?" I said "No, I'm just entertaining the kids"..LOL...
Thanks Play dough...you saved the night!!
Another Fun Filled Full Friday off with my favorite people...

Glad you had fun. I had the girls overnight on Thursday. Actually, I had them for 22 hours. I have pictures to post too. I've just been too tired. You didn't miss much at the market. I just got my usual produce. Only spent $11. Have a great weekend. Tomorrow is Jack's baptism.
