McCarty Clan Visits Malakoff

Last weekend, we had a wonderful time with my family. First, we had Evan’s first Upward Basketball game at a church in Athens. Evan did a great job and made 2 baskets! He is getting much better at basketball this year!

Then, we met PawPaw, Grammy, Kevin (my brother), and Caleb (my nephew) in Tyler to eat lunch at Daniel Boone’s and to shop. The rest of the Sparks family came about 10 pm after Mauri’s marching contest in Dallas. Yea, Queen City Band…they came in first in their division!

We set a record at our house that night…we had 11 people and 1 rowdy puppy spend the night! We had people sleeping every where! Ethan woke up most of the house around 12:30 am when he woke up in my bedroom and I wasn’t in there. He was very confused! I put him in Evan’s twin bed with me for a little while to try to get him to calm down and not wake up anyone else. Well, that didn’t work! Finally, he decided he was tired of being there too, and said, “I want to go back to my mat!” That was about 2:30 am! Needless to say, I was pretty tired at church on Sunday morning! :)

We had a wonderful church service and then got to enjoy our big Sunday family dinner together. That’s one of the things that I miss the most about not living in Texarkana anymore. We had ham, scalloped potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, rolls, and a yummy cake that Evan helped me make. MMMM GOOD!!!

We really loved having the whole family (minus Ami--she's in Maryland right now) come to visit us! Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Go Evan! He made 2 baskets for his first game of the season!

We only had 5 of our 9 players show up for the game, so they had to all play the entire game! The were hot and tired by the end but they played so well!

Ethan had more fun playing at Evan's game than watching Evan play.

Evan helped me make this yummy Halloween was an orange & chocolate swirl bundt cake with white icing and black bats & orange sprinkles.

Wow! We're full after our yummy Sunday dinner.

The guys just wanted to watch football all weekend.

Ethan likes the cake...well, he really likes the icing!

Evan is always smiling when PawPaw & Grammy are around!

Evan is proud of his creation! It matches their clothes too! :)

I cannot believe that Mauri & Caleb are both taller than me already! How can this be??
