Veda was slow to start, she was shy and hid behind my leg and wouldn't really say "trick or treat" at any of the first few houses, but by house #4, she was on top of it. She was yellin "trick or treat" across the yard before we even got to the door. They had great manners, said thank you (with some reminding a time or two). I have pictures, but they're at home, so I'll have to upload them later. They really tell the WHOLE story.
McCrae was scooby doo, and he was a HUGE hit!! He got his costume from his cousin Hayes, it fit to a "t" and he was so excited about it! Everyone loved scooby and even gave him "scooby treats." He laughed and laughed about scooby treats.
Veda was a scarecrow. I got her costume from our consignment sale, which by the way is happening again in March. She was absolutley precious, but people got her confused with a witch... she had a black hat, but IT HAD PATCHWORK on it... surely that should have given it away right? Anyway, they loved it, and we had a BLAST taking them from house to house.
This will go down in history as the best Driggers Halloween YET!!

Yes, you read it right, soccer ball. McCrae won't call it just Soccer, it has to have the word BALL behind it! He is the cutest thing EVER playing soccer. He played goalie most of the time last night, and he ROCKED at it!! He got one right in the belly (GUT) and stopped, looked at me and the coach, like should I cry or not... and he sucked it right up. I yelled to him, "GOOD JOB McCRAE, SHAKE IT OFF!" and he got up! He got right back to work!! We are so proud of him. Here are a few pics to show you all the day! Oh, can't forget to say how proud we are of his Daddy...he's a GREAT coach!
Mac's #1 cheerleader is Veda, she loves going to practice and watching (or playing with toys). She constantly is trying to run out and hug Daddy (coach) on the field. It is a precious site!

Well, we have missed and missed our friends in Savannah and couldn't wait another weekend to see them. So, last weekend we drove after work to see Aunt Na Na and Uncle Brian (Renae and Brian). We stayed Fri. night and into the day Sat. then came home for Sawyer's baby dedication. We had such a GREAT time in Savannah. When we got there we ate with uncle Brian and Aunt Na Na at a Mexican Restaurant. It was a blast, and Veda of course loved the chips... she's my chip girl. and McCrae, well seeing as he was born on cinco de mayo, and people call him Taco, it just seems fitting that he LOVES tacos! (soft of course). So, we loved that place.
Then Saturday, we went to Savannah Mall, it had a Carousel, Arcade, play area, and the chick fil-a cow. You would have thought we were at an amusement park. I think Uncle Brian and Aunt Na Na may have been worn out when we left. I know I was!
Here are a few pics that captured the weekend. Oh, Veda and Mac loved Cabella, their dog. She's a pointer, and was so friendly to them. Veda was feeding her gold fish! Too cute! Thank you Brian and Renae for being the hostesses with the mostess! We love yall!!

Today was exciting and sad for us! Veda, our baby girl went to her first day of daycare. She's two and has been with me all summer, and stayed with a friend that kept a few children until then. I was so worried about how she would handle the situation. McCrae is much different than her, he's very bubbley and just said bye mommy when I left him for the first time. Veda on the other hand is very clingy and reserved. She'd much rather be with me or Kevin than with other strangers.
So... we walked up to the door: Me, McCrae, and Veda. Mac was excited to be back where he was a year ago, but you could tell Veda was very unsure. I'd been telling her all weekend about her "new school" and she said she was ready, but it was a very reluctant "I ready Momma."
I held her for the first few minutes and Mac immediately ran over to Kaylen (their cousin who also started today). When I put her down she wanted "UP UP MOMMA" but I didn't pick her up, I gave her meow (her "security" charm) and she was ok, but didn't leave my side. So I told Holly that she'd probably have to pick her up for me to leave, and so she did, and me and Mac walked around the corner, and she SURVIVED!!! I couldn't believe it. All that worrying... UHHH I should have know God was hearing my prayer after prayer. God is soooo good, and He answers us when we cry to Him.
She was really well behaved they said and she even asked to go to the potty, which is a miracle in a new place. We are about 95% potty trained, and I just knew this was going to be a relapse, because of the new place, but NOPE she is GREAT!! When we got in the car, she was very talkative and reminded me a lot more of Mac and his talkativeness... She just jabbered on about her new friends and they played outside. I think she likes it. We're going to go again tomorrow... maybe take a nap by mid week there! YIKES!!
What have I learned in all of this?? It's true what they say, worrying does NOTHING good for you! Trust God, He will protect them! That is my constant prayer... protection over my children, and once again, He is delivering!!! Thank you Jesus!
Looking forward to another successful day tomorrow! Until next time... Chow!
P.S. Sorry no pics, I need a digital!

We had such an awesome week in Nashville! Me and the kids took a trip to see Aunt Krystal and Mrs. Kate (Clemson friend). It was everything we expected and then some.
Thank goodness Meemaw was willing to make the trip with us, she made it so much easier. One could drive and one could tend to the children. They were suprisingly GREAT travelers!! I must say, they made me VERY proud in the car! Meemaw was very patient and understanding throughout the entire trip! WE are all glad she was there.
When we got to Nville, we went to the zoo, the monkey treehouse, downtown, Mrs. Kate's house, had a picnic in Centenial Park and visited with Aunt Krystal. It was so awesome. The zoo was incredible. Much much better than Riverbank Zoo. We spent 4 1/2 hours there and Mrs. Kate met us there. We got to meet Banks and we LOVED him!! Veda kept kissing him, and McCrae was full of questions for Mrs. Kate. The neighborhoods that surround Nashville are absolutely GEORGOUS!!!
Kate's house was by far the most beautiful house I've seen in a long time! She and her husband Brent have done an awesome job of renovating an old house into something that most only dream of!! It was absolutely incredible. I need pics, because words do not do it justice! Her son Banks was so well behaved, he just smiled every day and was so happy all the time. It was awesome to get to sit and catch up with Kate although we missed her husband, I'm hoping Kevin and I can get our families together again very soon. You forget how much you have in common with and miss old friends!
I have pictures from Krystal's camera, but only a few, Kate needs to email me hers. She'd just gotten a new camera and it was the MAC DADDY of a camera. Took great pics, can't wait to get some back!
Aunt Krystal and Uncle Stu Baby have the cutest house. They're renting now, but it was nestled in the best neighborhood. Filled with hills (which Mac loved to ride on his scooter, especially on the way down the hill), mature landscaping, and from the outside some of the hugest houses I've ever laid eyes on. I mean Nashville is no joke! It is beautiful!
Here are a few pics of the trip!
Me, Meemaw, Veda, and McCrae with the downtown area in the background.

If only I had a digital camera again! Someone in the Bahamas is enjoying it, and I am losing precious moments with my children. This week we had Emmy and Hayes all week spending the day with us while Mimi worked, then she took all 4 to VBS! What a week it has been! So much fun with so many popsicles! I'm fresh out. We fed the donkeys apples every day, saw a hog or two get shot, swang on a swing from the tree, which by the way, the second day on it, Hayes broke it. He is getting too big! ha ha ha... I'm kidding, it was on it's last leg anyway, I hope he didn't get hurt too bad.
They just kept each other entertained all day! And nap time... oh the precious nap time. I slept just like them for 3 hours each day! ha ha ha.... Yes, I am lazy!
Tomorrow, we leave for Nashville, TN to see aunt Krystal and Kate (college friend). I can not wait, and McCrae and Veda are really excited too. They are really really excited about Meemaw (kevin's mom) going with us. Kevin has to work, so it's just us and the two pip squeeks. It should be an awesome trip! I haven't seen Kate in FOREVER and I'm soooo excited to be meeting her new addition and seeing where she lives. Today we stocked up on drinks and snacks for the road. Of course, we shopped while the oil was being changed in the car, and when we got back it still wasn't ready, so we ate some of the snacks then, but for the most part we have lots of snacks!
I'll report on how our trip goes. Until next time...

Pawley's Island, well that is a summer in itself. For 25 years my family has been going to the same beach, and many years the same houses for a week at a time during the summer. It is seriously a very comfortable spot for our family! It makes us take deep breaths and really enjoy each second of each day. Not to mention that our children are at a PERFECT age to enjoy it all too. We had some of our closest friends visit us during the week, and get a glimpse of a Villeponteaux vacation. No T.V. (or very little, this year while we were away, lots happened. Michael Jackson died, Sanford was silly and so on. You could imagine how hard it was to keep the T.V. off) Only cards, pictionary, and lots of reading and talking. Oh, and the most important thing... eating.
We ate and ate and ate. Our husbands were so mad at all of the groceries we bought that we felt guilty if everything and I mean EVERYTHING didn't get eaten! Thus, we all came home 5 lbs heavier than when we left, but it was SO worth it!!
We of course took family photos, which gets harder and harder each year. We keep adding family members (aka having children) and if you have children, you know how difficult it is to get two children to smile and look in the same direction at the same time. It's impossible!!
We rented a paddle board which is similar to a surf board, but larger and more stable. We stood on it and paddled around it was so cool on the creek side. It was such hard work on the ocean side. My legs were like Jello when I finished with that thing. Mac rode on it with me in the creek. He loved it and at one point he laid down while I stood and paddled, it was too cool.
Anyone ever wondering where to go for an awesome family vacation? Pawley's Island will have my vote from now until forever! A tradition in this family that I hope never ends!! Enjoy these pics. there are a lot... sorry, too many good ones to not share!
