Just a few pictures

Wow-- REALLY....3 whole weeks.....goodness we have been busy, busy around here!  You know it's bad when Kris says, "Hey you haven't updated our blog lately!"

The pants that she has on....yeah, she came home from the hospital in them!!  LOL

I know, no pictures of Kaylee but the kid is NEVER at home!!  
Kaylee is on spring break this week so I took the week off to spend with her!  Even though the weather has not been very springish at all...we are still enjoying time off!!!
We have our first softball tournament this upcoming weekend, I will be so excited to see our girls on the field.  They have worked really hard conditioning during the winter but have only been on the field maybe 5 times, if that.  But you have to start somewhere...and for us it will be this weekend!!

I hope to get back in my regular blogging mode this week!

Basketball ends

Basketball has officially ended and the gray team took 2nd place!!  I was so very proud of these girls, they all learned so much.  But of course I have to brag on my girl.  I think she had nine points and about 19 rebounds!!!  Seriously I don't think it was quite 19 but she had a lot!! ha!  I hope think that basketball is going to be her sport!  Don't get me wrong she loves softball too but in my opinion she is a much better basketball player!

After the game we celebrated with our team at McDonalds.  And then it was off to softball practice for three hours!
Sunday we watched the MTSU Lady Raiders in the SunBelt Tournament at Nana & Papaw's on pay per view.  Our girls were top seeded going into the tourney and unfortunately they just couldn't get it together today.  They all had their nails painted purple, wore purple ribbons in their hair, (Tina's favorite color) had black number 20 patches on their jersey's and instead of their usual warm ups they wore black t-shirts with "20gether" on the front and "Stewart" on the back.  Also they had Tina's uniform on the first chair of the bench....ahhh soooo sad!!!  I think the girls just had too much on their plates this week but its not completely over, we will just have to wait and see how the rest of the chips fall to see what is next for our Lady Raiders!
No matter what happened today....I know a nine year old that is still a HUGE MTSU Lady Raider fan!!!
Gooooo BLUE!!!

After the game Kaylee had softball practice again, Kris took care of that. While I ran to the grocery store with coupons in hand and I saved almost $50.00!!!  KB stayed at Nana's and had a nap!

I think this next week will be the first week in a long time that we will have nothing to do but come home every night this week!!!

Missing in Action

Whewww busy, busy...I have a lot of catching up to do.  So hang on I'm going to journal the last two weeks pretty quickly.
Of course as you know Kara Brooke has been pretty sick, the following pictures are her taking her breathing treatment and her cow machine.  She is doing a lot better even though I have had to take her back to the Dr. two times this past week with an ear infection.  She kept spiking a fever again and basically the first antibiotics were just not strong enough to kill the infection since she has been on so many different drugs in the last month.  But as of today she has been fever free for 24 hours.  Thank goodness!

Last Saturday, of course we played basketball and lost again to the one and only team that has beat us three times!  Wheww....just couldn't get past them.  Kaylee had an ok game, had more rebounds than points but we were still very proud!
Saturday afternoon we had to go help out with Kaylee's travel softball team with a chili supper and corn hole tournament.  we had a very good turn out and raised quite a bit of money for our girls!  

Kaylee has never played corn hole EVER but they had a kids tourney going too and she and her friend Jaley won second place!!  They won $10.00 each and they were sooooo excited.  They wanted to make sur ethat everyone knew that they got beat by a sixth grade and a eighth grade boys!!!  ha!

Sunday afternoon we went to the MTSU game.  It was Senior night and the last home game of the year. It was also Kara Brooke's very first MTSU game!  She did so good and loved watching "the horsey" our  mascot is a horse named Lighting and she tried to keep up with him most of the game.

On the following Wednesday we got very bad news that one of the MTSU players, Tina Stewart was killed by her roommate.  Such a senseless and tragic act of violence that was so very hard to explain to Kaylee.  She just couldn't understand why someone would do something like that to Tina, "because she was such a great player!"  All of this happened two days before the team was to hit the the road to Hot Springs, AR to play in the SunBelt Conference Tourney.  So sad....they had a memorial service in her honor  on Thursday at Murphy Center.  Please pray for Tina's family, coaches, team mates and friends!

If you look closely, Tina is in the white uniform facing the camera.  She did have a great game Sunday too!!  RIP Tina...we will miss you #20!

Kaylee again with her favorite...Anne Marie

Kaylee and Ebony!
