If you remember in this post I was talking about redoing a bulletin board for Emma's room. Well, this week the kids and I headed to Hancock's to find some material for the bulletin board. I ended up finding something better. I found this bulletin board on sale for $10.

I did buy the rhinestone "E" on the top in the middle, but other than that, it was just the plain zebra print bulletin board with push pins. I still plan on redoing the other one to hang somewhere else in Emma's room, but for now, at least she has the pictures of her friends up on her wall!! She's so excited!

VBS, 2010: Saddle Ridge Ranch

This week we are having VBS at church. I am helping with the music for 1st-6th grade, and Randall is in charge of the games at recreation time for the same age groups. Since I am helping with music, I have to "dress" the part and help lead worship rally by doing the moves in front of the kids as they enter the sanctuary...and I honestly love it (although I will be dreaming of tumbleweeds for the next month!!). Tonight is our last night of classes, and tomorrow night we will be having our program for the parents. Mac is old enough this year to be able to attend VBS and go to a class instead of staying in the sanctuary, and he has had a great time!

Me dressed and ready in my VBS t-shirt, jeans, and boots (Thanks, Michal, for letting me borrow them!!). Just to let you know, I bought these jeans and another pair this week (I splurged and bought 2 pairs of Levi's!!) and I had to buy a smaller size!! I was so excited...however, I really don't want to step on a scale!!

Dog Sitting

Last weekend, we dog-sat for the Wood family while they went to Texarkana to watch Hunter play in a baseball tournament. The kids greatly enjoyed Sadie being here all weekend! Thanks, Amy, for letting my kids keep an eye on her!

Upcoming Project

I'm still working on Emma's room in bits and pieces. I've finally decided to start working on her bulletin board to hang above her desk. She needs somewhere to put all the pics of her friends. This is what I'm starting with.

I am going to go to Hancocks and look for material and buttons or anything else I might can use to decorate. I'll post pics when I am done!

When your babies are sick

You are miserable. You can't do anything to help them, and it's not fun for anyone. Mac woke up this morning complaining of his stomach hurting, then he started dry-heaving. Not fun! After a few times of this, I sent a text to Mrs. Patty (our nurse practitioner friend from church) who prescribed some phenergan for him. As we were waiting at the drive-thru window at the pharmacy, guess who upchucked all in his carseat and all over his clothes...yep, Mac! I felt so bad. I stripped him out of clothes and had him ride home in Emma's car seat (I know, not the safest thing, but I wasn't about to make him ride in the other one!!) wearing only his underwear. I did stop by Sonic because Emma wanted some lunch and I wanted to get Mac a Sprite with no ice. He also wanted some french fries, which he ate all of and has kept down so far. Say a little prayer for my little man that this passes quickly. He doesn't need to lose any weight!

Date Night with Randall

Last night Emma and Mac both spent the night with Randall's mom, so Randall and I decided to make it an official date night. There are lots of time we get to go eat, but we wanted to do more than that. We started out by going here

to get Randall some new flip-flops. His other ones were about to bite the dust. After Hays, we decided to go to Sushi Cafe to eat dinner. I had this Hawaiian roll,and it was wonderful! (I also had a house salad with ginger dressing).

Randall had a bomb roll and a seaweed salad. All the food was great. We then headed to

to look at a few things before heading to the movies to see

Yes, I went to see it AGAIN!! I actually think I enjoyed it more the second time I saw it. We didn't get home until after midnight (and I feel like I'm getting a little old for that!!) but we had a great Date Night...can't wait to do it again!

Wacky Wednesday- Little Rock Zoo

Wednesday was our last Wacky Wednesday with church. We loaded up and went to the Little Rock Zoo. I let Emma ride the church bus while Mac and I took the van (he had his appointment with Dr. Kagy, and then we met the group). We had a great time. Starting next week, it's time to break out my list of Summer Savings!
