Week Deets

The odds have been against me this week on the blogging front. A super busy, eventful week and losing internet at home from a storm depleted my chances of getting a post uploaded. I know a slow down is on the way and I will be more regular again. I'm ready for that day :)
Last weekend we attended Ace's third birthday party! It was a Spiderman pool party and Spiderman even made an appearance. I don't think Georgia Grace had ever heard of Spiderman so it was a learning experience. She was attached to my hip the whole time he was at the party :)
A picture of these two was hard to come by this time so this was the best we got. Ace is going to be a big brother to a little sister in January and we are sooo excited to throw another little girl into the mix!
Tuesday night we headed to Nashville, just the two of us. We never go out like that through the week so it was definitely a treat. We ate at our favorite Cock of the Walk. If you've never been-GO. It's off Briley Pkwy so really easy to get to. Love love that place!
And then it was on to the reason we came to town. Carrie was performing at the Grand Ole Opry! It had been a while since I had been to the Opry and this was Marcus's first time so we were excited.
Ready for a night of country music! Ashley and Paige let me raid their closets for an outfit and I loved what I wore! Thanks girls.
Carrie was the headline but it was an allstar lineup- Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Terri Clark and more. The Del McCoury band was there and they were a bluegrass band. It was a neat variation from the others.
Carrie was the grand finale and brought the house down! She sung some of my favorite songs that she sings and nailed them. It was a beautiful thing! It was a two hour show I didn't want to end.

While we were having fun at the Opry, this girl was definitely not having fun on the farm. Tuesday afternoon she was fencing in cattle with Jake when a piece of barb wire punctured her eye. She went to the doctor who sent her to the ER where she was sent to Vanderbilt Eye Institute for surgery. The surgery went well and they are optimistic she will not lose vision in the eye. She will go back next Tuesday for a second surgery as a cataract developed before the first surgery took place. She has a long road ahead of her but we are all praying it will all be worth it if her vision is fully restored! Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers this week. They meant to much to her and Jake. We love you Aunt Shanna!

TGIF!! Everyone have a fun weekend!
