Main Street, Marathons and Choral Performances

We have had a fun filled weekend! Mom and Dad came in on Thursday and Mandy came in Friday afternoon.  We played Mexican dominoes and I am proud to say Mom won, not DH. He has called for a rematch.  He says we all talked too much and he lost his concentration....right!

Saturday morning Mandy slipped out quiet as a mouse around 4:50 am and drove down to run in the 'Music City Marathon.' When we all decided to get up, Dad mixed and rolled out beignets for us all. Delicious! Mom said these were the best he had ever made. I think we say that every time! Mandy had a great run even though it was a scorcher of a day and was able to come back to the house and go with us to the Main Street festival.  Sav found a pair of earrings and the rest of us just browsed.  It was so hot!

Mandy left for Memphis and we hated to see her go. She promised her little ones she would be home in time to go with them to Dairy Queen.  She has grown up to be a smart, strong, beautiful mother and wife.  I am so proud of her and know Charlotte is too! We are all going to have a blast in Paris!

Today was a good day of worship and then tonight mom, dad, Mr & Mrs. C, Julie, Jax and John D all came to here Sav's choral performance.  It was incredible! They just have one more performance at the University in May and they will be finished for another year.

Today is Jodie's birthday...Happy Birthday dear friend! All five of us sang 'Happy Birthday' through the speaker phone onto her cell phone voice mail, she is going to crack up or cry when she hears it. Hope it makes her day brighter!

On to Monday! I am keeping Mom and Dad here until Tuesday...wish I could keep them longer!
