We're Home!!!

First I want to say that Friday was my Nannie's birthday. I didnt forget, I called her Friday morning before we left to wish her a Happy Birthday. She is 80 years old. I Love You Nannie...

Well as most of y'all know we left Friday morning for the beach. And not only was that the excitment for the morning, but we also woke up to a dusting of snow.. How cool is that. We hardly ever get snow and when we do this is about all we get.

So off we go to the beach. We had a very good day to travel. The sky was blue and the air was crisp. I love the drive down, so many little towns and interesting things to see. My most favorite thing to see is the cotton fields. Fields and fields of cotton.

We went through the big attraction of South of the Border. Lots of things to do there too, but it was too cold to stop and enjoy anything.

So Friday we made it down safe and sound. It was bone chillin' cold though. The wind would just rip right through ya. Here is the waterway there in Conway. Not much longer now..

After ariving at the hotel, Wesley would not take a nap. He was just too excited to sleep. We headed over to Broadway @ the Beach for a little store hopping, and some good eatin'! We shopped around for a little while then we headed over to Margaritaville for whatelse, but a Chesseburger in Paradise.

Here is my little parrot head.. Aint he a cutie?

Here's my other parrot head, but he wouldnt wear the mask.. I cant imagin why!!

The only thing I didnt have was the cold draft beer.. Giggle... I have somemore pics of the resturant in my slideshow. So be sure to check it out.

So while we were waiting for our food to come, we were entertained by It's 5 o'clock somewhere. The huge hurricane in the ceiling starts spinning and well, if you want you can just watch the video. I hope it will play for y'all.

It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere

Saturday was a little warmer and that was a day full of shopping and eating as well. Before we did all of that we took Wesley down to the beach to look for sea shells. He had a ball.

Mama and Daddy love to hit the resutrants. Which I dont mind that either. I love good food. We went to Tanger Outlet on 17 in Myrtle Beach and I got right much of my shoppin for Wesley done there. After we caught a nap we ate supper at Capt. Benjamin's Calabash resturant. Let me just say this..... There was no way I could eat $27.00 worth of food. That's how much the plates were. $26.95 a person. All you can eat buffet. It was good, but we filled up fast. After that we went over to Myrtle Beach Mall and I got a much needed haircut, and shopped at Bass Pro Shop. We tried to get Wesley to talk to Santa, but NO way he said...

Sunday was more shopping. We hit Tanger Outlet on 501, I didnt buy anything there. I was pretty much done on Saturday. We ate supper at Johnny Rockets. Its set as a 1950 diner with the jukeboxes there on the table. It was very good too.

We then headed back out into the cold to see the Christmas lights and enjoy some Christmas music. All in all we had a wonderful time. I sure did need the time away from home. But I am soooo glad to be back. There is NO place like home!!

We laughed while we were there. My mama is not one to have her picture taken. We talked abou how she is like that neighbor from that TV show Home Improvents. I think his name is Wilson. You know they never show his face, all you ever see is his eyes. So mama because you are not a "team player" - giggle this is for you... Daddy he plays right along. Thank you Daddy...


Thank you Mama and Daddy for letting us tag along with y'all. We had a wonderful time..

Ok, here's the slideshow.. Thanks for peekin'.

It's Monday!!

I guess I could say Monday is just about over. I have the day off tomorrow, Thank goodness. I am sooo tired. We had a very busy weekend.

As most of you know my brother got married on Saturday. Oh it was a beautiful wedding. Desiree was soooo beautiful and my brother Timmy was very handsome. Wesley and Josh were in the wedding as well and they were lookin very sharp as well.

The ceremony was a candlelit ceremony. They did the joining of the two families with sand. This is something I have never seen before. First the parents of both the bride and groom put sand in as a symbol of the two families joining together. Then Timmy and Desiree added sand as a symbol of the two of them becoming one. It was very interesting to see this being done.

Everyone was just beautiful. From the Bride all the way down to the ring barer. Which by the way was Wesley. Desiree had told me the night of the rehearsal to just let him do what he felt he needed to do. That way she knew that I was NOT stressing about he was behaving. I have to say that he did really good. Well until like the last five minutes of the ceremony. That is when he announced to the whole church that he had to go to the bathroom. OOOh, I could have died. The congergation got a giggle out of it. After returning from the bathroom, he went right back up there just like nothing had even happened. I guess you cant get too much more natural than that right?

Wesley James Clark

It was 4 years ago today that my sweet Wesely came into the world. It is sooo hard to believe that he is already 4 years and will start school in 2 years. Why does time have to go by so fast?

So today we got pancakes for breakfast. Then my Mama and Daddy came up, Daddy had baked Wes a cake. Sadly they tore into that cake before I could get a pic. Can you believe that? Cake before 9 am.

Jay (hubby) has taken him up to his parents for more cake and icecream. He will be so wired today it will be hard to do anything with him. Giggle.

Anyway, so our plans are to have supper at Rock Ola and then back home for more cake I guess. Y'all come on over and get some cake cause I know we will have it up to our eyeballs.

I thought I would share a pic of Wesley on the day he was born and then now. I hope y'all dont get tired of seein my kids. They mean the world to me.

This is big brother Josh and the nurse, she was such a good nurse.

Wasnt he a porker? Weighing in at a whoppin' 8 lbs 5.3 ozs.

Sorry the pic are the way they are. I had to scan them.

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you my sweet Wesley. I Love You!!
