miss magness creek pageant

Lauren won wee miss magness creek Saturday. i don't know how many more of these i can take. lol!! it was hot, hot in that gym. in the other two pageants we have done she has wanted me, but this time she was a daddy's girl. she wanted her daddy every time. i was surprised i could get her to smile on stage. she also had not had her nap and was hot and tired. when it came to the crowning and they were about to announce the winner i was a wreck. i was looking at who was left and wondering whether this was going to be the one when she doesn't get anything. i know that eventually she will have one of those. :( everybody does.
the day had already been along one, but it was a good one!! Chris smoked some ribs and a pork butt and family came over. Lauren had a blast seeing her mamaw Lisa, pappaw Jim, paw paw Larry and maw maw Bobbie. we tried to roll her hair but it turned out awful. I'm sure though as hot as it was in there that if it would have curled, it would have fallen. poor child has her mother's hair. of course it she had her daddy's curly hair i wouldn't know what to do with it. now we get ready for Georgia. we leave this Fri or sat. can't wait!!!!!!!

our weekend

saturday was lauren's aunt melissa's wedding. (chris's stepsister) it was a beautiful wedding. lauren was a flower girl and she did so good. she walked down the aisle, came right to me, and sat down. every now and then she would say somethng out loud, like when a lady got up to sing she asked me who that was and when she sat down she said, "where go?" it was cute. it was a Hawaiian themed wedding and if FELT like it. lol. nobody turned the air on in the church. then after the ceremony lauren found a slide in one of the rooms in the church and she didn't want to leave. finally got her out of there to take pictures then we went to the reception. lauren wanted all of the little umbrellas and had both hands full of them. we didn't stay long at the reception. we had to get back on the road. our next stop grandma lillian's.

we had a wonderful time at grandma's. aunt joyce was there and it was nice visit. lauren though acted so shy like she had never met either one of them before. she didn't even want to play with grandma's dog frosty.

next we went to the jr. high auditorium to watch alyssa in a pageant. it was great being back in that auditorium. it still looked and smelled the same. brought back alot of good memories. (all my dance recitals were held there) alyssa was so pretty and she had a beautiful dress on. she won most beautiful, photogenic, and 1st runner up. i really thought she should have won and especially should have won best fashion. that dress was so pretty.

we finally ended the night at maw maw's in hampton. she was glad we finally made it. uncle scott came up and lauren had the best time wearing him out. sunday paw paw larry came and uncle scott came back and we all had alot of fun. we left that night about six and headed home. it was great coming home and seeing chris. we missed him so much. we had already celebrated father's day with him on friday but we came him his cards when we got home.

i tried to put pictures on here but it won't let me so i'll try later.

Trip to Monticello

Chris's three day weekend was last weekend. We ended up going to what we are calling our get-a-way place. His mom and step dad recently bought some more land down from where they live in Monticello. It is 80 acres with a barn and a double wide with a built on porch and it's fenced in which is GREAT for Lauren. So that is our get-a-way place. we had a blast. Granny Beth (Chris's mom) had bought Lauren a swimming pool last year but we never used it. so we brought it with us and blew it up she loves it. the child is an outdoors gal. her daddy loves that. the only prob on the trip we had was the air went out one day. we had it fixed by that night though. Saturday night Lauren spent the night with granny Beth. it was the first time me and Chris had been alone in along time. i tried to remember the last time and i think it was in April. we had a good time but we missed the little boo bear like crazy. she of course wasn't worried about us. she had a blast with her granny. they went shopping( of course she got lots of stuff) and she helped her cook and clean. when she came to the house the next day i wanted to laugh because i thought she looked like beth. she had a ball cap on and looked like she was ready to work outside. she was cute.
