I wanted to share about our weekend but I really have to back up a few days to Thursday. Thursday night I had a girls night over at my friend Amber's house. All the girls from our Sunday School class get together around once a month and we have a potluck and visit and it is always SO much fun and probably the thing I look most forward to each month. Only we had so much fun talking and laughing that I forgot to take pictures.
Susie who lives in south LA happened to be in town for a funeral (sad for her) but we got to meet up that morning before she and her family left town. She is so sweet. I had so much fun visiting with her. Her daughter Maddy who is 11 was with her and she entertained Hollis (Harper was at school) and her husband was also there and is so nice. He has a LOT in common with Scott - I was wishing they could have met. I kept telling him they would be best friends. Susie is so creative and makes the CUTEST signs!
I love this picture. They are starting to interact so much these days and it is SO fun!
(I'm so proud of Harper's dress in this picture. I absolutely love it and I love it especially because my friend Kacy saw it in a consignment shop and it's basically new and was $10 and she emailed a few of us with girls that age to tell us about it so I raced to get it!) (and Hollis' dress was Harper's that she wore for two years - once as a dress and once as a top. So we should get four good years out of that sweet dress!)
Tracy and her other daughter Sarah Grace. You need to go visit her blog to see all the details from this party and the one she threw Sarah Grace a week ago for her fifth birthday.
Today was a crazy Sunday. We went to church. We had a big Sunday School class today - 17 9th grade girls - it just keeps growing! We came home and ate lunch and I ran to a baby shower for my friend Julee. I had to leave that a little early and come back in time for our parenting class at church.
This is Hollis and I before we left for the shower. I took Hollis with me and she was so sweet. She just "talked" and squealed and smiled the whole time. Harper stayed home with Daddy and took a nap.
The shower was absolutely precious. How sweet does this look?
And the cute cake.
They had pink cotton candy for favors. What a sweet idea!
Julee is one of my favorite people. She is so pretty and she's one of the SWEETEST people I know. I prayed so hard for her to have this baby and I'm so thankful that we are close to meeting her. Baby Preslee will be here in December and she will be one loved and blessed little girl!
I didn't get a ton of pictures at the shower because I was holding Hollis but here are Jill, Melissa, and Jennifer. I love these blond girls!
Julee's mother-in-law, SIL Rachel and Leslie. It was at Leslie's house and it was so nice!
It's been a full but wonderful weekend!
