I am working on so people will have a place to sit down. So a bit stressed to begin the day....We left the house at noon, let the puppy out, thinking we would be home around 7:30.....planning to meet the entire family at OUTBACK at 6:30 for a family BIRTHDAY supper for AMANDA. Then we would bring JACK home to spend the night with us, so Amanda and Micah could go to a BIG BIRTHDAY party that MICAH had planned downtown. Easy enough...or so I thought!
Parker is NOT a HAPPY CAMPER and neither was I by NOW. Remember we need to let Bella out at HOME.....We have now had 2 appetizers, which Jack has promptly thrown on the floor. He DOES NOT want to sit in the high chair...and so we pass him around the table....Little 20 month old boys do not WAIT well. FINALLY GREG and family arrive, him walking a tad strange, everyone looking stressed. The poor waitress is probably thinking of quitting or at least praying for a LARGE tip....She was lucky that both MICAH and GREG have waited tables.....They TIP TOO good. Grayson is starving, and Austin has had a breakdown in the car, because he thought they were not going make it in time to get Parker to spend the night. As soon as they arrive Pop takes Grayson and Jack has a TOTAL BREAKDOWN. HOW DARE Pop, hold another BOY!...THIS picture below just cracks me up...Can you see how violated Jack feels...and Grayson looks like he has seen a ghost. I am sure in his heart he was saying, "Please give me back to my MOM"! We finally have our MEAL...by then I am not even hungry and am thinking we need to get home and let the dog out....We say goodnight....Amanda, Micah and Dana laugh as Greg hobbles to the car. We leave with a whining, very cranky and tired Jack, Parker and Austin leave happy to be getting to have a cousin slumber party, and Amanda and Micah head downtown to a her FUN BIRTHDAY party.
So if I have ever portrayed our family as always "in tune", please take this as an admission, WE ARE NOT!...Hop over to the Christmas blog and check out the winner of the Tree skirt. You can still tell me your favorite Christmas song. Mine tonight would be "Silent Night"!
