The airlines wanted to charge them extra for Blake's car seat & stroller...an extra $100, but then finally let them board and waived the fees. They will be staying one whole week, away from mommy. Below Jimmy is pictured talking to Chad while we wait for the luggage.
Before boarding their flight in Orlando, Florida, Chad had to mix the baby's formula in a bottle in front of the security people, give the baby a drink of the formula and throw away the rest of the water.
By the time we got ready to leave the airport Blake was hungry, so we had to make a quick stop to buy some water. We were hungry too, so we stopped and ate before we got home. By this time, we had missed Erica's baby shower. Sorry Erica.
We also didn't make it to the arts & crafts fair, but there was a message on my machine when we got home from Brian. He said to come out and watch him make a bowl...so we did. I was covered in woodchips from head to toe and we were going to a silent auction on our way home. Brian blew me off with some kind of air hose before I left. Jimmy was smart enough to stay out of reach of the woodchips. Brian tried to get me to have a go at working on the bowl, but I was afraid I'd ruin it for him...Maybe next time.
We made it to the silent auction. The money raised will go directly to orphaned children in Haiti. Have you ever heard Jimmy scream! Well, I haven't either, but he did chase me around, trying to keep the pen out of my hands. *LOL* I bid on several things and the picture above is what I won the bids on. I was just going to bid on this wonderful little level called a FatMax XTREME Magetic level with an angle finder made by Stanley....I love tools. I guess you could say I have a tool fetish.
I won the bid on the level, by the way. The red paper is a $25 gift certificate to Ryan's Restaurant and the white letter head is to be presented to the bank for a $50 savings bond.
Kids...don't be surprised if one of the items above turns up as one of your Christmas presents. *LOL* But not the level!!!
