Charlie is not the only one who acts up for pictures;) He has a partner in crime and doesn't even know it. Boys, you just can't get them to sit nice for just one picture.
My cousin Elizabeth met us for Lunch at Gabe's Downtown to celebrate my birthday. It was very special to have her there.
The two who brought me in and the two who can take me out;) We had a wonderful Saturday together.
Me and my daddy. Words can't express how much I love him! Thank you so much for being my dad and raising me up in the admonition of the Lord. You taught me a lot and continue to do so! Happy Father's DayAren't they just beautiful. My brother and his wife came to celebrate my birthday and father's day at my mother-in-laws!
On June 13th Along with my cousin Elizabeth and sister-in-law Shannon I helped throw my sister Christine her first bridal shower. We had so much fun shopping for the decorations. So the night before the shower we got together to decorate. The shower was a huge success. Christine got so many nice things. We are so happy for her and she is going to make a gorgeous bride.
If you ever need a lesson in pom pom fluffing...the three girls in the picture above will be happy to teach you.
My cousins Elizabeth and Lauren came the night before to help decorate since the shower started at 10am.
It took 4 of us to finish these, but they turned out so cute. Keep reading to see what we did with them;)
The table with the food. We had breakfast and the menu included: Fruit, sausage and cheese balls, whipping cream biscuits and raspberry preserves, breakfast croissants (w/egg, bacon, sausage and cheese), cheese grits casserole, pastries, and orange pineapple punch.You would not think that danger comes with beautiful decorations...but these did. So me and 15 week pregnant cousin took on hanging the pom poms from the ceiling. Jonathan and I do not own a step ladder or any other type of ladder. But we do have in our possession higher than normal kitchen table chairs. However these chairs did not exactly allow me to reach the ceiling to hang these nice decorations...so we put our heads together and devised a plan. A plan that worked, not a plan that was safe. So with about 45 min left until guest were scheduled to arrive I began looking through the house for something, anything that would help the cause. Yes! I found something. It was a gray Rubbermaid bin that we had some clothes stored in. Turned it upside down, put it on top of chair, proceeded to climb on top and hang pom poms while cousin Elizabeth had a death grip on my ankles. I don't think we have told Aunt Janie (retired 1st grade teacher) how we got those up there yet...best not to;)
For the first shower game we played we had all of Christine's guest write advice on index cards w/o their names on them as they arrived. We then had Christine read each of them aloud and guess who wrote them. Unfortunately she only got about 2 out of a bunch right. She determined she was not very good at the guessing game.
The second shower game we played we split all the guests into two groups. Each group picked one person to dress as "the bride" in toilet paper. Whoever had the most beautiful gown as voted on by Christine won...you would not believe that both the girls gowns were almost identical. Shannon and Shelby were such great sports and made gorgeous brides.
