The actor's debut...

Davey played Joseph in the Church nativity put on by the children. He had one line, which was said so fast, you couldn't even hear it. And alot of singing. After 2 months of every Wednesday & Sunday practice, I think we were both glad it was over, however I was amazed that he was not even nervous about the audience and did not faulter once. So his debut was announced and the director told me that Davey has quite a bit of acting talent. he had learned everyone's ques and songs...Wonder what will be next?

The full court press

The first "practice game" was pretty cool. Davey's team is DUKE (And No, Tennessee was not an option or I would have appealed the decision). Here's the question:
How do you teach 5 & 6 year olds how to not walk with the ball?
Davey did have a fast break and swiped the ball from the opposing player, dribbled down the court & passed it to the coach's son, who is the best shooter on the team. The basket was GOOOOOD! and the pride was written on his face. Season starts on the 10th!

Offical induction into the...

Emergency Room Mom's Club! It went down like this:

The scene:Davey & I returned home on Monday nite and He & Cole immediately began a rambunctious evening routine. Fast forward 20 minutes to a loud "thud" and cry.

The injury: a deep cut 1 inch to the right of his right eye

The story told: Davey jumped from the dresser to the bed, bounced, rolled off, and hit the corner of a bookshelf.
Mom's reaction: Flew out of my slippers, pinned him to the bed while screaming, "WHAT DID YOU DO????"

The action: 10 minute summary that I could not fix it with a bottle of whiskey and some thread- took us to Children's Hospital of Atlanta.

The solution: 2 hour wait in the "non-sick" waiting room of a "dreaded" hospital , and the

Finale: 4 stitches from cat's intestines, and a super cool scar to show off.
Just another Monday Nite!!!

Fun in South Carolina

A business trip took me to South Carolina for the weekend, and Davey & I had the opportunity to spend some time with Davey's cousin Carson & his Mom Marylynn. They spent
Friday at Carson's house in Clemson and then to Monkey Joes. Davey &
Carson played hard and then we got to see a great light display
at a science center in Greenville.
I'm happy that Davey has a cousin close to his age.

Christmas activities

From October to December we go, go, go. This weekend we headed out to the traditonal pick out the tree, train ride in the mall, Santa picture and run as many errands as you can in the time between. Luckily we had our friends Kim & Cole with us this year. It seemed to go smoother and the Mommies got to stop and have a beer with our pizza. Gotta run off to the next fun activity. Happy Holidays.
