Hmm. The last 15 days recap:
December 4-8: We went to Disney World. Our trip to off to a bit of a rocky start when I was "randomly" chosen to frisk while waiting to board the plane by a female security agent. Let's not forget that I'd already gone through security and the metal detector and all that jazz. Apparently my baby bump looked awfully threatening. I guess I forgot what a threat to national security pregnant women can be.
To make matters worse, she told me to "assume the position." I almost asked her which position she meant, like the John Travolta "Stayin' Alive" pose or maybe on my knees in prayer... In retrospect, it's probably better I left it alone. She also frisked the woman standing behind me in line. She was wearing an University of Alabama hoodie, so she and I decided that the security agent was a bitter Auburn fan. Figures.
We had a great time at Disney.
Eeyore even shared with us (in his own, non-verbal sort of way) that he, too, is an Alabama fan. He was especially excited about that day's big win over Florida in the SEC Championship. Bless Jason's heart, he missed the whole game, but did stay updated on his phone.
We ate dessert with every meal. The kids don't know what to do now that we are back home and don't have an ice cream sundae bar in the house. Poor spoiled babies.
I miss it, too.
We rode everything. When I say everything, I mean everything. The only thing I skipped out on was the teacups. As a pregnant gal, I feel like I'm riding the teacups all day long, every day.
December 8-16: When we got back home, we found out that Emma had pinkeye and bronchitis, which would explain why no one got any sleep. Emma coughed all night, every night at Disney.
After hostessing a party for 20 ladies two days after we got back (I'm certifiably crazy, I know), we moved on to the next big set of events--the Christmas Plays!
First was the church play:
Next were the three performances of Luke's first grade play:
Bless the little present guy in the back row. He couldn't sit down in his costume.
The play was great, but the kids sure were glad when it was over. (As were the moms and dads who sat through all three performances.)
I wrote a whole blog post in my head during the Tuesday night performance. It may or may not make it to print, but it dealt with first grade play attendee etiquette. I was appalled at how some "adults" behave at a school play. Truly embarrassing.
So, after two parties this morning, my kids will be home for the next 16 days.
Oh my WORD.
Somebody save me.
