greatest hits

my momma had knee replacement surgery.  it went well and she is due home today with a long recovery ahead of her.  since it is unheard of to learn how to use a new knee properly with 3 rugrats tugging on you, my sister and i are taking care of each others kids while the other is at work until momma's knee is in proper working order.  it's gonna be an adventure, y'all.  this temporary set-up should be good birth control for my sister!  my little monsters can wear you out. 

here is a peek:

1) since my house is a construction zone, the cousins hung out at mimi's on my sister's first day back to work.
 {watch out, addelyn.  biggie smalls is after you.}
 {i sure did.}
 {angel pie}
 {mimi's house is like vegas.  what happens there, stays there.  the boys get to watch too much tv and eat chips straight from the bag.  brings back fond memories of my childhood.}

2) mimi's hospital is conveniently close to pepe and mito's, a fairly-new-to-us mexican food joint.  margarita=stellar, shrimp enchiladas=divine, and they serve their tecate fully dressed. 
 in lieu of my standard list of things i am looking forward to, i ask that you please pray for my dear, dear friend who very unexpectedly lost her father on thursday night. 
our hearts are heavy.

i hope you have a great weekend.  
now go hug your daddies.  and your mommas, too.

until next time,
