Get Down Downtown

Last weekend, Searcy had their Get Down Downtown Festival. Randall and Gramps took Mac to deer camp, so Emma and I headed downtown for some Momma/Emma time. We wandered around, got Emma's face painted, made a sand peace sign, and watched the SHS cheerleaders. Emma was thrilled because she absolutely loves Jessica (the cheerleader in the pic with her). On Saturday night, Randall and I headed back downtown for the FREE (yes, I said FREE) Mark Wills concert. All in all, it was a wonderful day (except the fact that Bama beat our Razorbacks!!)

White Co. Fair, 2010

Ok, I know I'm a little behind on blogging, and since it's 9:00 on Sunday night, I am not going to get caught up tonight. However, I thought I would get in a couple of posts. Two weeks ago was the White County Fair. It kicked off Monday afternoon with the fair parade. Grammy picked up Mac from Miss Renee's for me, and Emma and I met them at our spot to watch the parade. I think we've watched it from the exact same spot the last 3 years. The kids loved it! Randall and I worked our church booth at the fair Monday night, then we took Grandma, Emma, Mac, and Haley Wood to the fair Tuesday night. Tuesday night is free admission night AND armband night, so it was pretty crowded. The kids knew before-hand that we were going to see the animals and eat, not ride rides. I think they had a great time. Here are a few pics from that week!

And the outcome is...

Gallstones! A whole gallbladder full of them. I had an ultrasound on Tuesday, and I went to the dr. today to get the full results. The first thing he said to me when he walked in the exam room was, "Well, you win the award for the most gallstones EVER!!" I asked him how many there were, and all he could tell me what that it was full!! Great! Now I will be heading to see a surgeon in Little Rock (the date is yet to be determined) to see about getting it out! Praying that they don't have to cut me open!!

Sticky Notes

One of the programs we have on our computer with Windows 7 is Sticky Notes. Both of the kids love to type on it (they can change the background colors). I walked in the other day, and this was on Emma's screen.

"I love you Mrs. Amy Emma Grace Martin. I see a cat. I love you Dad. I love you Mom. I love you Mac. I love you me sef (myself). We wit (went) to a restwest (restaurant) to eat to get fthr (together). I like me sef (myself) because."

I thought it was the cutest thing. I love Amy (Emma's kindergarten teacher from last year) see it. I can see how much she learned last year through this simple "sticky note."

Not how I wanted to spend my Saturday

Yep, in the ER. Randall and I ate Casa Brava for supper last night, so when I woke up at 3:00 this morning, I thought I had indigestion. Apparently, I was wrong. I finally :woke Randall up around and told him to take me to the ER. The original concensus was that I had kidney stones. That was ruled out. It seems that now I have an inflammed gallbladder. I will be scheduled for an outpatient gallbladder ultrasound this week, then I'll probably talk to a surgeon after that!! They gave me morphine at the hospital, and I've been sleeping most of the day...and I am heading back to bed now!!

SHS Lions Football is here!!

As of Friday night, the Searcy Lions' football season has started...and it started with a bang! Our lions pounced on North Pulaski by beating them 56-0. It was a great game, and Emma and Mac were both full of school spirit (we still have to find Mac a SHS shirt, but Emma was sporting her shirt AND flip-flops!!

Books, books, and more books

Can you tell his mom is a reading teacher?
