Me, Chonda, and Rhonda
We had an awesome time at Chonda's concert last night! It was relaxing, refreshing, and of course hilarious! If you ever get the chance to see her GO! Chonda made sure us family members had
great seats! During the concert she made many references to Aunt P and Uncle Danny and I even got to go up front for my 5 seconds of fame! We love you Chonda, you are the best even in Hollywood!
This was Chonda's green room! They
decorated it just for her! I was impressed
with the food, water, coffee, and soft
drinks the staff provided for her and her staff
(and family members!!!!)

Chonda's purse! I just had to post this!
It's for Aunt P!

Before the show C's cousins put her hair in pigtails!
While at the concert C's uncle D kept her! They had too much fun together I know! She was all dressed up for their date!

C's Piggys!

Secretly I've waited for the day that C will do this: TPing the bathroom!

Secretly, I bought scrapbook paper with a TPing theme the summer that I was pregnant.
Secretly, that was two summers ago.
Secretly, I'd knew it would happen so I was prepared with the scrapbook paper, I mean!
She TPed the bathroom the week Courtney visited and while we were chit chatting.
Secretly, I was so glad that she did this! It was just too much fun to watch her laugh and grin when we walked in and saw her surprise.
Secretly, I can't wait for her to TP the bathroom again! This time I want it to be on her daddy's watch!
Secretly, he would not enjoy it as much as me!

Happy Sweet 16 months Caroline! We love you!

Last Tuesday (July 20th) was a fun day! Not only did Courtney and I take C to music and movement we also ate lunch with my first grade team and other first grade teachers that have moved on to teaching at different schools, and then later we headed to Orangeburg to eat dinner with my family that came to visit from Ohio. It was a fun packed day and I love being busy!
Here's some pictures of our lunch date!

Brycen! He's sweet and absolutely adorable, however,
can you believe that he doesn't like having his picture taken.
I told him that he needed one in front of the "cool" guy!

Brycen and "cool" guy! Isn't he just C-U-T-E!

The babies:
Casey with Connor- 3 months, Audrey-3, Caroline-15.5 months, Allison- 8,
Thomas- 4, Evan- 14 months, Brycen- 3, Sarah- 3!

Allison is a dollbaby! I remember when she was C's age and I would keep her on occassion! She and her brother, Trey, (not in picture), are precious precious children! Allison is a big help with Caroline when we eat out on Tuesdays!

This year at the library C just wasn't an observer like in last year's lapsit but  was a participant in this year's music and movement. We are so glad that we spent sometime last Tuesday morning with our friends!

Kathy with her 16 month old twins, Charlie and Annie Claire,
Me and C, 15.5 months, and Cortney with her 20 month old daughter Sarah Ann.

C could not take her eyes off of the action that was happening in the music and movement room of the library. She watched intently at all the goings on!
Here she is with her noise maker!

This is us at last year's lapsit!

The week of July 12th was a bit busy for the Leviners. One thing happened...got it fixed...then another thing happened..got it fixed. Mama calls this "when it rains it pours". All things are fixed and working now! But here's the spiel!
Monday AM: Sam's truck AC quit working...got it fixed Monday!
Tuesday PM: On the way to Lex from O'burg my oil light came on in the car. Daddy checked it and it was VERY low on oil. Apparently Sam forgot when it needed to be changed. Daddy put 3 quarts in it, made sure there were no leaks, and sent me and the two C's back to Lex!
Wednesday AM: After dropping Courtney off after meeting her grandparents halfway on the interstate, I had my oil changed in Lexington! My car thanked me!
Wednesday AM: Thought we had termites so we had the house inspected. No termites...Praise the Lord...are you with me...PTL!
Wednesday PM: After the AC was running and running but the temperature in the house was 84 I figured something was wrong AGAIN..yes..again. This is the 3rd summer that we've had AC problems and our house is <5 yrs old. A friend gave me the number to the AC guy who had just left her house and he was impromptu in 30 minutes! After one hour I had AC!
So you see we've had a busy week but life is good even with those minor bumps in the road. AMEN! Amen!
So while we waited for the AC guy and as our house temp climbed to an unnatrual 87 degrees, C had her blue jeans on!

This Zany Zoo toy is a big hit at our house!

My baby's got her blue jeans on!

C drags this case of drinks from the corner
of the fridge to sit on while she plays with
her fridge phonics! Too funny!

C also tries to sit in every round plastic container
no matter it's size. She screams when she can't
seem to fit. This bowl was a ruckus but she did it!

Caroline has had some pretty special visitors recently. Her Nanny came just three days after completing her radiation treatment, which by the way she is now 100% cancer free (I will post about this very soon)!!

Nanny and C! July 12th

If there's anything more that C loves it's special one on one with her big cousins! She absolutely loves her Courtney and her Kelsey! Courtney visited her C just this past week and we had a blast!

We went to Isle of Palms today for our niece, Anna's, 7th Birthday Party! I've never been to Isle of Palms before nor to a birthday party on the beach! The park at Isle of Palms was very nice. I almost was free of sand before getting in the car to come home!!

The Birthday Girl! Isn't she beautiful!!

C had a lot of fun splashing in this water hole!

Little girl!

She wore her sunglasses mostly all day!
Here we are getting ready to head home!
