Labor Day Weekend!

Spent Labor Day weekend in Ocala. The plans were for Mike to go fishing. After all, all week long he is Mr. Mom. The weekend was for him to enjoy. Unfortunately, Jay had to do some work on his roof and Mike helped. Then the next day, 40% chance of rain. So Monday it would be for fishing. NOT!!! Sunday evening, I went to bed at 5:30 ish and woke up at 5:15 am and a terrible ache/ripping/coughing of the lungs. I feel like I have pneumonia. This had Mike at home and not fishing. But there was some good that came out of it!
Jay went for some rides on the tractor...he even steered. Doesn't watch where he is going though!
Saturday, I took Toddler Jay, Jayda, Jake, and Peggy on an excursion! We ended up going to this neat leather/moccasin shop for coupons to local restaurants....I of course felt guilty just taking coupons so I looked around....and found these awesome purses and had to have them!
They were marked down from 42.00 to 15.00 a piece. Handmade, all leather out of Florence Alabama! Handbags by TJ. A USA company that is now out of business! How sad for them...if I had only found these purses sooner, they would NOT have gone out of business!!!!
Then on to CiCi's pizza to take the children somewhere fun! With my first paycheck, I had to take them to do something they would enjoy! LOVED the macaroni and cheese pizza. You'll have to try that sometime!!!
Heading back a couple of weeks, because I have been a bad blogger....
It is Michael's 43rd Birthday...although he got creative with the candles!
1st bad birthday song Mike must endure!

Jay and Mike had a chance to fish on Mike's birthday weekend.
Upon arriving home, Mike has to endure yet another really bad birthday song!

Day one of school for my oldest babies. Jacob starting 7th grade and Jayda starting 5th grade. This was taken at 6:30 am before I had to leave for work...boohoo!

A really special blog,Jessica....especially so because you must be feeling a tiny bit better if you're able to blog.We enjoyed having you all here. I have to say the Carter b-day celebration was by far the WORST Happy Birthday singing,but it was fun!! Didn't you really love the blue icing??? The tractor riding will rank high in my list of special memories. The 1st day back to school pics were super! Get better Jessica. Love, Mom
