Cowgirl weekend

I am so behind in blogging. Weekend before last was a nasty, rainy, cold weekend. Poor Stacy's four children had all been sick, she was sick and I was sick. K has it this week. Stacy decided that she had to get out of the house so we decided to head out to a children's museum in Cartersville. Stacey's dad went earlier this year and he liked it so much, he joined. I read in the paper that there was a big cowboy festival going on. So we bundled up the kids who weren't sick and headed out. K was extra excited because Stacy drove and K just loves Stacy's car. A minivan. Stacy would like nothing more than a new car. K loves the minivan because it has a built in DVD player. K and I were talking about Stacy's car and how she always crashes into things. K quickly came to Stacy's defense and said that it is not Miss Stacy's fault it is because she has so many kids and someone is always saying "Mom, look at that!" so she is distracted a lot. K was also excited because I told her there was a place where you could pan for gems at the museum. K is all about gems!
We arrived at the museum and headed for the kids area which was downstairs. We did all of the fun activities-rode a horse and a stagecoach and did some fun crafty things. We all got hungry so we went upstairs to eat. They had a chuck wagon going on but it was outside and the weather was so bad so we ate inside. After lunch, we asked about the gems. Turns out were we at the wrong museum. We were at the cowboy museum, the gems are at the children's museum. We did not realize there were two museums in Cartersville. Ooops! The museum we were at had a great collection of Western Art, Civil War Art and Presidential Art. We will have to plan a trip to the children's museum for another weekend and some gems.

Easter Cat

We have a beautiful bowl of alabaster eggs on our island. Their luscious, bright colors always put a smile on my face when I get out my Easter things every spring. Yesterday K let out a scream and I looked over to see Bert in the bowl walking in circles. My first thought was that he was getting ready to use the bowl as a liter box. Maybe he thought the Easter grass looked like liter? Was he mad at me about something? He has been known to use my suitcase as a liter box when we return home from a trip to pay me back for leaving him. One time I caught him trying to pee in my Goyard purse after we got in late one night from a trip. But no, he snuggled into the bowl. I wonder if he is trying to hatch the eggs. Is he planning to hatch some baby kitties? K would certainly like that!

Flip Flops to Uggs

Crazy weather around here. Last week K had a snow day-a rarity in Atlanta. This week we were basking in warm weather. K had a friend over from school one afternoon-I looked out the window and they had moved chairs and art supplies out into the driveway and were do an art project. How cute! Today I am back in my Uggs and freezing. I am so ready for spring break and some beach time. Three more weeks!

Sunday, March 1, 2009


Perhaps I was a bit premature with my post yesterday about spring being on the way. Today it snowed all day. Unusual for Atlanta in March. One of those snowstorms with big, fat, wet flakes. The kind that are perfect for snowmen and snowballs. My little cold weather girl was over the moon happy!
