Big Day "Gonuts"

Derrick's birthday turned out to be an interesting one. We had plans to go to Krispy Kreme again this year then do some shopping and a few fun things on that side of town.  

As we were heading out the door we had a slight change in plans.  

I was standing in the doorway that leads out of the kitchen into the garage, and apparently Derrick decided he was in a hurry and needed to go ahead of me.  {I think} I tried to avoid knocking him over and lost my balance.  My foot got caught in the door jam and I went flying forward, into the garage.  Thankfully I caught myself with my hand and my knee, but I heard my foot pop on the way down.  Poor Justin about had a heart attack watching the whole ordeal from behind!  I sat on the garage floor for a few minutes, reasurring a nervous Justin that I didn't hit my stomach and a crying Derrick that 'mommy was ok'.  I wasn't in a great deal of pain so we got in the car and headed to Krispy Kreme. 

After all, it was my little guy's second birthday!

Seriously, the smell of this place is heaven on earth!
 We picked out our fresh dozen and sat down to enjoy them.

Someone was VERY excited to be eating "Gonuts!"  

 He picked his daddy's favorite....sprinkles!

 The sprinkles threw him off a little at first,
 but not for long!
Oh, so yummy "gonuts!"


Yay for Birthday Gonuts!

And WAY too much sugar for an already super energetic boy!!

When we left D said, "Derrick like Krispy Kreme!"

I'm so thankful that D only turned two this year because after we left Krispy Kreme our plans were over.  I couldn't stand walking on my foot and we had to cancel the rest of our day.  D went home to stay with Mamaw and Justin and I headed to the orthopedist.  

Thirty years and I've never had more than a slightly sprained ankle that never required a visit to the doctor.  

Thirty-five weeks pregnant + D's birthday = fractured foot.   

Let's just say it helped cross things off the spring break to-do list and made D's party planning a little more work for everyone (except me, of course!).  The timing stinks, that's for sure.  But in reality, timing stinks for something like that no matter when it is.  It could have been really ugly...Jenny Kate is fine and so is Derrick.  To keep my babies safe I'll hop around for as long as I have to.  

I'm happy this boy enjoyed his morning and has no idea that we'll have to finish celebrating his last birthday as an only child in about six weeks...with a little sister in tow!   

More birthday fun coming soon! :)



  1. So sorry to hear about your foot, Shannon, but glad to hear everyone else is okay. Hope your foot heals quickly as I know that can be a big hassle. Glad Derrick enjoyed his donut!

  2. Oh man! What a bummer but at least you have to force yourself to take it easy the next few weeks so it will heal quickly!!!

  3. Ask, so sorry to hear about your foot! Speaking from one still in the boot 3 months after fracturing her foot, I can tell you that no, there is no good time to break a foot. but thank goodness nothing worse happened! Hope it heals fast!

    Love the pics of donuts - D is such a cutie!

  4. Oh Shannon, I am so sorry to hear about your mishap. I'm glad the kiddos are ok, though. You will just have to hang out and let your guys pamper you for a while :)
    Rest up and get ready for that princess!
    Heart hugs,

  5. Oh my gosh I can't believe that! Thank God baby was okay and everything worked out. Now you have an excuse to rest some before baby arrives! I love the picture of D making a "stinker" face- again, a total reminder of ANDREW! He makes the same face! I seriously think these two could be brothers! Ha!

    Take care!

  6. You poor thing!!! I'm so sorry about your foot. Rest up and feel better!!


  7. Oh my goodness, I am sooooo craving Krispy Kreme 'gonuts' right now. Thanks, Derrick :)

  8. I am so glad you, Jenny Kate, Derrick and Daddy are okay..but mostly you. I'm glad Derrick still got to go to KK's but then again, a mom always makes those sacrifices for her kids and even though you were in pain, you made sure everyone was "okay." You are a wonderful family and Derrick is absolutely adorable and so photogenic!! Oh wait, it's probably that photography class you finished up .

    Glad you're on the mend and now I'm hoping our local KK gonuts has the HOT sign on tonight! LOL

  9. So sorry about your foot! I love your comment that you will hop around on one foot as long as your babies are safe. You are such a good mama! Derrick is just adorable and he does remind me so much of Field. We have to get those two together someday in the future. Thinking of you as Jenny Kate is getting closer to making her grand debut! Love, Lisa

  10. Sorry to hear about your foot!! Hope it heals fast!
