What a busy and exciting week we had.  I love it when it is like this, and I think that BellaRose does too.  We all like to be on the go.  As you know it was Worth's birthday last week and we had his family over for some lasagna and rice krispy cake.  Worth's sister made the rice krispy cake and it was so cute.  She made it in a bundt pan.  Worth is no lover of cake so we have to improvise when it comes to dessert.  He has requested rice krispies for what seems like the last 5 birthdays.  We do always grant his wish too.  BellaRose had fun helping Big Daddy blow out the candles.  Worth also got a snazzy new little camera for his birthday.  That will be a lovely addition to the home technology, as it is nice to not always lug around our big ole camera everywhere.  Thank you all for your birthday wishes to him, he is much aplidged.  




The next day we met up with Jennifer and Davis at the Health Adventure in Asheville.  The babies got to run around and have an absolute blast.  They were so intrigued by the floating plastic ball.  Let it be noted that it was also Worth's favorite exhibit.  It was a very nice reprieve from the cold as it was only 4 degrees in the morning that day.  Oh goodness!  Let it also be noted that snow is also FINALLY in our forecast.  Of course they said it was going to start at 1 today and right now at 2:27 pm there is no snow.  I know it is not a big deal to the Colorado Carrs, or the Michigan Mulders, and the Boston Combs' (that one does not flow as well), but to us 1 inch of snow stops the world.  Just remember you came from the south (except Annie, but she was here long enough to know).  I hope that it will be a little bit more snow then 1 inch, but so far it is not looking so good for the home team.  Rest assured if there is snow you will be getting some snow pictures!

We also had a lovely visit from my older sister, Kelly, and her family.  Annie Singletary's in-laws have a house here in Black Mountain, and they let Kelly and the fam stay there for the night.  They had so much fun staying so close to the lake and to town, thank you so much Big Dan and Lee Singletary!  As always it is so nice to have family up here.  We had plans, Saturday evening, as you will see below, but the Baird family had their own agenda and were just happy to be up here in our lovely mountains.  Thank you for the visit and the fabulous breakfast at Early Girl Eatery  Sunday morning!
And now to the finale of our week (boy are you guys tired yet!)!  We celebrated Matthew Hales Lowrance's 30th birthday.  Worth and I got to go out on the town while BellaRose played with her cousins at his sister's house.  Margaret organized it all, and we had a rowdy group of 16.  What a trooper Margaret is being 30+ weeks pregnant and putting up with all of us.  We had a blast and were just a tiny bit tired the next day.  Midnight is not our usual bedtime.  I know, I know, that does not sound real late, but let me tell IT IS!  You people need to be getting to bed earlier if that is not late for you!  Well that is about all the updating I have patience for right now.  I really, really, really hope to be posting some snow pictures for you soon, but we shall see!

Oh, PUULEEEEZE some snow!!! this will be the first time we've seen anything significant in YEARS!!!!

if you know anyone needing jogger strollers, send them over to my blog. i'm trying to downsize and simplify my life.

bellarose is turning into such a little girl. i feel like you just had her!!

do they still have the big ear at the health adventure?!

i did not see the big ear, but they do have a vein that you can climb through that makes blood pumping noises. sort of gross. are you guys supposed to be getting snow too? oh that always makes me mad when raleigh gets snow and we get nothing! good for you guys though. how much are they calling for? i saw your stroller for sale. is that double one your new one? they do take up so much room. my 2 strollers are in the trunk of my car too.

Becky Swann said...

Wow what an action packed weekend! I'm glad you had so much fun! You guys are a bunch of party animals:)

Shanna Mac said...

it is the new one, and it's a great stroller--it's just a lot bigger than i need or can deal with.

we already have 4-5 inches and IT'S STILL COMING DOWN!!!!!!

JTP said...

Jim said...

Yes Michigan has ours and your share of snow this year. I do remember 1 inch in Columbia SC causing havoc so be careful.

we got no snow! what in the world!!!

That does sound like a fun and busy week! I visited the health adventure several times this summer with various kids and they all wanted to spend the bulk of their time in the floating ball area.
I was so mad about the lack of snow too. What's the point of living in the mountains?

You were a girl on the go! It all sounds like so much fun. ~ I'm excited y'all were able to have an adults night out:o) We went out (baby free) this weekend as well. I think the tiredness we felt afterwards was totally worth it!

Courtney said...

Oh wow! What a fun week you've had!! You and Worth are just the cutest couple!!

Annie Singletary said...

happy belated birthday to Worth. I am behind on my blog checkups, really fun week I missed over here in Black Mountain, man, you were busy.
Glad you guys got some time out and you stayed up late. you must still be recovering from that.

Heidi and Richard King said...

Fun! We love being busy too, but it is always nice to have some down time then. It looks like you guys are having fun and making some great memories.
