Alise's school called me yesterday to tell me that she had fallen off the monkey bars at recess. The secretary said she was fine, but that she was bruised and swollen on her right cheek. They put some ice on it and thought she would be okay. I decided that it was best not to play "drama mama" for this incident, so no phone calls to Ms. K or driving straight up to the school to check her out myself. I have one tough - but majorly clumsy - little girl (I think she is going through a growing spurt)!
The Horton's are hosting a small Halloween party this Friday night for Alise and two of her trick-or-treating buddies. For the last two years, we have partied with Addison, her cousin Kylie, and their moms on October 31st. This year, the festivities are at our house. Now, for those of you that know me, you know that I like to go all out and I had considered doing just that for this occassion. But because the other moms are more laid back and easy ( not planners and up tight like me!), I felt that inviting more of Alise's friends and going all out just wouldn't be fair to them and so I decided to stay true to our simple Halloween tradition. Stay tuned for Halloween pictures later in the week.
Speaking of pictures, I am SOOOO excited about my Flashback Friday photo coming up for this week!! I'll give you a hint: my mom was able to find this photo for me. And my daughter had the audacity to say, "What's that, Mommie?" Ah!!!
Dance lessons yesterday. I let Alise go home with Emma after school. When I got to the studio, Alise was running around on a sugar high. I asked Lori, "What did you do to her?" Of course, she wanted to go home with Emma last night, too, and so you can imagine how that went over right there in front of everyone when I said, "No." Ugh!
Gymnastic lessons tonight. In Halloween dress. Wayne sweet-talked Alise in to wearing her Bama cheerleading outfit instead of her Mermaid costume. I forgot my camera.
Speaking of Bama, Wayne found out that the LSU/Bama game will be at 2:30 and not at night in Death Valley. Thank goodness! He said that the majority of the LSU fans on his route say that we will beat LSU. We'll see. I wore my houndstooth jacket today in honor of Bama's homecoming this weekend!
