Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Golf & New Bows!

So I have been so very busy, my lack of blogging is a sad sad reality. Last week amongst customs and working, we had games, practices, hitathon fundraiser(which i was in charge of as team mom), relay for life, a birthday party, a mock trial (more on this later), a new pet, a lunch & gambling date with my Momma, the list goes on and on! I'll post more later on the mock trial as well as Haliee's Party pics (I am a loser I know).

Anyway, Hal invited me along to golf with the men yesterday! I have never golfed before and it was SO FUN! I was a sight for sore eyes let me tell ya! Haliee said she got me on video and is going to post it here, ha! She came along to drive the cart. I looked like Charles Barkley! I kept taking a full swing or "whiff" right over the ball! I did make it on the green in 2 once though! All the men said I did well and I'll take it even if they may be just making me feel good! I am such a perfectionist I got frustrated, I want to BEAT THEM! :0) I'm definitely ready to go again! I am amazed at how many back muscles we have...they are letting me know who they are today! Drew is pretty good, he hit some amazing drives! It was fun to see him play!

I am off to get Drew ready & bust out the rest of these customs. I'll leave you with my new favorite creation...Here are some new M2MG Bows for the new Citrus line. I LOVE the colors! So Yummy! I'll be back soon...

Now off to work all day & get these orders out so I can play! I'll post Haliee's Party pics as soon as I get a spare few minutes! Happy Friday! Doing anything FUN this weekend?

Hal & Tab + Eight

This weekend was sleepover @ the Hunters weekend! :0) We had kids galore! It was fun! Everyone got along great! They ate, played, ate, made messes, cleaned, ate, danced, ate....LOL!
Friday night after Drew's practice I decided to let them have crap for dinner. I made a McDonald's run which consisted of 40 chicken nuggets, 8 cheeseburgers, 4 chicken sandwiches, a big mac, and 4 super size fries. It was ALL GONE! Wholly...PIGGIES! I made them have milk, does that make it any less unhealthy (ok not really) But I splurged & they were happy lol!
Saturday Morning they devoured a whole loaf of bread for french toast, hash browns, sausage, and a 1/2 gallon of juice!
Saturday night I made Navajo Tacos! They were in heaven! I even let them have Soda for dinner!

Hal decided it would be fun to take them all down to the resort for Gooey's. We had to take 2 cars since there were 10 of us! Haliee snapped pics of very excited Grimmett Girls on the ride there. Hal had all the rest of the tweenie girls rockin' out in his car! :0)

I just have to say sorry to those of you with large families. I couldn't believe the looks we got. I wanted to say YES, they are ALL mine and YEP, I home school too! You see I have always been the normal 2+2...well mannered kids...etc...The stereotype. I usually have at least 2 more with me, but you know what I mean. I never realised how rude people are. They had no idea if we had $2 or $2 million to our name...Not that it should matter anyway. We received looks and waited longer to be seated, 10 minutes for a waitress, etc. The kids were all pretty well behaved. The babies were a little ancy, but other than that, it was great, no crying, fighting, etc. The looks were completely unwarranted.

Waiting to be seated

Our waitress was actually great. She was preggo with her 5th, so she brought out water with lids for all the little ones, etc. She got it!

The kids were clueless, they had a blast. Sophie pouted for a bit as she wanted her "own" gooey. Sorry sister, they are huge. Hal decided to order fries too to keep the babies still. Great idea, he was right!

I am so thankful for a patient husband, this is exactly what I wish my family was, so I am glad he is willing to always have transplant babies! :) What a fun weekend of little voices, feet, giggles!
