Bald Friday

We have some pretty great friends from high school and even scattered across the country we manage to keep in touch. Our friend Chris has been diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. My Aunt and Grandma both have breast cancer. So Russ decided to join with a bunch of our friends on Friday and shave his head in support of those close to us who are going through chemo and cancer. It was a very powerful experience and I feel so grateful to be able to be surrounded by such amazing, wonderful people in my life and I hope those going through such hard times know how much we love and support them and are praying for them everyday.

I told Russ if he keeps his baldness up, he'll probably match his son in a few months.


Russ let me play beauty parlor and I frosted his hair a few days before the shaving

The Chambers Move to Georgia!

     
Our family had the best time driving down to visit Marilyn and her family in Georgia. We first met up at the Cabbage Patch Headquarters. The girls loved wandering around and looking at the myriads of dolls and watching the birthing of a new cabbage patch doll. The grown-ups found the birthing and some of the dolls disturbing and the whole thing was a little hokey, but that made it all the more fun. I was ashamedly bursting with laughter when a high school, Jonas Brothers wanabee, was talking about mother cabbage being almost ten leeks dilated and more horrible puns were dropping from his serious mouth.  We finished the evening with a Georgia classic dinner at Zaxby's and then it was off to the Lake house. A rousing session of Uno and the girls watching the Disney channel had to be taken care of before it was off to bed. We spent the next day wandering the lake, watching an impressive band number from the Super Six, complete with a huge stick posing as a bass, rock drums and a guitar made form an old Dorito bag and another stick. We ate at a pretty authentic Italian restaurant complete with slow service and blackened pizza crust, but very yummy pasta. The girls spent the rest of the afternoon going crazy in the jacuzzi and we had a delicious dinner of taco soup. We kept Marilyn up late chatting into the wee hours. What a fabulous weekend. I love this adult version of a sleepover. Now I just need them to come and be our guests so I can return the favor.

Eno River Outing

The sickness has left my body. And let me tell you, this peasant is rejoicing. I'm still tired as an infant, but it's loads better than puking and moaning and total couch dwelling. This is enabling me to actually want to move past a five foot radius from something reclinable. One such glorious day we headed to the river for some walking and water playing. It was so beautiful, but I missed Luna. She would have loved it.



Southern Saturday

Whew. So between computer severe computer malfunctions, vacation and pregnancy, this blog has been suffering and I'm sure so have you. HA HA. So around a month ago we had what I would consider a southern Saturday. We picked us some cotton, reveled in the good old days of the confederacy while a canon was fired. Genevieve even signed up to join the confederate army. The South has already corrupted her. Pictures to follow. . .
