My Trip to Louisville

This weekend I made a trip to Louisville to see the not-for-much-longer Kentucky Whitsitt family. We had a fantastic time, packing, soccer, ice cream, fall festival, shopping, dinner and lots of Grey's Anatomy. It was so great to spend some time with my nephews and Jerilyn. Hardly ever do I get to see them one on one, so it was great. Most of Friday we spent packing and organizing to move, then Saturday we got up and went to see Ian play soccer. He is #10 on the Monarch team. He did a great job and had some really good plays. After that, they took me to an amazing ice cream place called Greaters. It was WONDERFUL. You know I love my ice cream. Ian and I had double chocolate chunk that had huge pieces in yummy. Simons mint chocolate chip and Jer's pumpkin were pretty great too. After that, we went to a great store called Just Creations and I found way too many goodies in there. Wonderful place. We then headed to a Fall Festival at a local school where we met up with Ian and Simons friends Harriet and Ellie, (along with their parents, good friends of Landon and Jer's, Bill and Jayne.) The dudes had a ball playing in the infaltable jump things and playing with their swords. After we finished there, Jer took us to a park near where they used to live when Landon was in seminary. I got a few really good shots of the dudes there... Simon kept asking me why I wanted to take his picture so much! :) While we were there, I got some good photos of the tress turning. So beautiful. Later that night, Jer and I joined her friends Christina, Ann, Carol and Jayne for dinner at a local restaurant. It was great food and wonderful company. It was really cool for me to meet some of the friends they have made while in Kentucky. It was also really cool to see them all in their own "space".......I know they'll have a hard time leaving Kentucky, but I can see in the friends they've made there, that those are lifetime relationships. What wonderful support they had while they were there, and will continue to have once they move to Missouri. Enjoy the pics of my sweet nephews!

Zoo Field Trip

Last Friday, I went with Ethan's 4th grade class to the Tulsa Zoo. We had a ball! We were assigned 6 kids, and we nicknamed ourselves the Cobra Patrol. The kids were great, and it was fun to see Ethan (who usually acts like he could care less about me) get a little jealous of the other kids' attention to me. :) Our kids were Jen, Avery, Allison, Alec, Ethan and Steven. They were all very sweet, but one of them got a little, shall we say, challenging, toward the end! Our group was the only one of 4 to figure out the chip experiment they had set up. Pretty cool. Some of the other moms were air heads, but overall, it was great. Not everyone can be perfect like me, right? :)

Cub Scout Game Night

A few nights ago, we all went to Ethans Cub Scout Pack meeting. That night, he recieved his first two badges as a Webelow. He got his Bobcat Badge, and his ReadyMan Badge. He was pretty excited to be up in front of everyone and recieve his awards. In a few weeks, he and Josh will be going on a campout where he'll have the opportunity to get three to six more badges in one weekend! Ethan is really enjoying being a scout, and I think his daddy likes it too! It's a great way for them to spend time together, and at the same time, Ethan is learning so much.

Girls Night Out!

Well, I don't get out much, and when I do, I like to have a good time! Last night 3 of my best friends and I went out for girls night, and to celebrate Katie G's birthday. We headed up to Bartlesville to take over the Gap Outlet and eat like crazy women! We shopped till we dropped, then ate till we burst. The top photo is all of us, Celine visiting Katie G from Switzerland, Katie G, Katie P, Candace and Me. We were missing one, Whiney had to stay home with a sick dude. The pic of me with an obscene bite of mashed potatos is my "margarita". I was driving, so instead of a margarita, I had a cup of mashed potatos. What? Got a problem? :) And yes, like nerds we did take our picture in front of the store, but I already told you, I don't get out much! We had a great time, and it just reminded me of how important it is to spend time with our girlfriends. Or any friends! :)

I don't care what you say....

The midwest is a beautiful place. I know some of you are snickering right now, but these pictures are a very big part of why I love where I live. Wide open spaces and amazing views....maybe not everyone would agree, but I am a midwest girl at heart....always have been, always will be.

Mega Movers!!!!!!!

The Chrystal Miles, Ben Whitsitt, and Landon Whitsitt and Betsy Whitsitt families are on the move! Well, most of them have moved already, now we're just waiting on the Kentucky Whitsitt family to get their booties back here :) This past weekend, we went to Kansas to help Chrystal move into her first house, then Ben and Bird along with Aiden move into their new home. It was a great time. We are excited for everyone, and their new adventures!
