Carson, the only child













For those of you with more than one child, do you remember what your life was like with one baby? We got to experience that this past weekend. Hayden went to Oklahoma with his Aunt Melissa and Uncle Eric on Friday to visit Grams and Papa and didn't return until late Monday afternoon!! I was a little worried that we, and when I say "we" I mean Matt, would be making a trip to Oklahoma to pick him up! He did so good though. He was spoiled rotten. We could barely get him to talk to us on the phone. I'm happy that they all got to spend a long weekend with him without Momma breathing down their necks:-) Carson, on the otherhand, probably didn't know what to do with himself. Friday night we rented some movies....which never happens....and when we got home, Matt, Carson, and I all layed on his floor and talked and laughed, and played. You know, like when you just have one baby and you just spend hours staring at them. We slept late on Saturday b/c the 6:30a.m. kid was gone!! When 8:00 feels late, you know you have an early riser in the house. Sunday morning we played Matt's ipod over the surround sound speakers in the living room when we were getting ready for church. What a difference it was from our normal "river, forest, Pablos Mountain" we hear Dora yelling every other day. We went out to eat after church with friends...and ate!! Monday we went to the Holmes house for a little Memorial Day cookout and splash day. I actually layed out!! By late afternoon, we were very ready to see our little Hayden though. Is he spoiled today...absolutely. Would I trade the weekend we/he had for un-spoiled Hayden today...not a chance! Am I glad to have my whole family back together? You betcha!

I loved the "river, forest, Pablos mountain" comment...because I can relate to that so well! It made me start singing "we did it, we did it, we did it, hurrah"!

I agree with your friend Alexis, I totally know that song. I am glad you had a relaxing weekend.

Cute pictures! I just wanted to let you know you're in our prayers, and I hope your appointment goes well on Monday. You've been such an encouragement to me. Let me know if I can help out in any way!

I got to be Hayden's Bible class teacher on Sunday when they were in town! He was such a good boy!
