Tailgate Couples Shower

Dave and I have the best friends! JW & Marrianne, Alan & Lesa, and Michael & Wendy gave us an Auburn Tailgate Shower Saturday night. Marrianne's father, Buddy, has a 1950's style diner where the shower was held. Everyone had a great time eating yummy food and watching the exciting game! Since AU played earlier that day, we watched the Alabama/Georgia game. It was fun, and Dave and I are now set to entertain next football season!

The gifts were AMAZING!

We were so excited to get this stainless steel trash can
from Dave's grandparents!

Ms. Amy gave us some awesome cookware.
We had to open it up to admire it, and of course
couldn't figure out how to get it all back in the box!
THANK YOU Everyone and

Happy 26th Birthday Brother!!

I love you and miss you brother! I don't have ANY recent photos of you, and I don't like that. I had to "steal" some from your Facebook account. I hope that's okay! See you and Aly in about 50 more days!!!!!!!!!!!

My middle brother, John (aka 4), is only 23 months younger than me. He still lives in Nebraska for now, but we're hoping he may be able to move to the east coast in the near future. This week he's on a business trip to Wisconsin. He called me Friday afternoon and was practicing his best Wisconsin accent on me. It was enough to make me nauseous!

Have a Happy Birthday Brother! Be sure to bring Justin a Cheese-head Hat back!!

Dylon stayed with us all by himself last night, but got an ear infection and didn't feel to great. As a result, we didn't make it to church today. While Dave was watching Frazier UMC on tv he saw this preview, and shared it with me. I LOVE Kirk Cameron. Our church youth group went to a conference and heard his testimony once, and that just made me love him even more. I think he's great in the Left Behind movies, and I can't wait to see this one. It looks like the perfect movie for two people about to get married, or any couple for that matter. I found out on the official website that it's playing in Montgomery, Dothan, and Destin this weekend. I'm thinking a Sunday afternoon trip to Destin would be great wouldn't it Dave? You must watch the preview, but be sure to pause my music player at the bottom of the screen so you can hear it!

I Should Be Grading Papers Instead of This.....

Lately, I've enjoyed wasting a lot of time on The Knot looking for wedding ideas. I've found some really cute stuff!! I'm meeting with Amy soon to discuss poses, and I think this one is a must!

Dylon and Houston's 3rd Birthday

Today the twins turned three years old. They were so cute and excited. They did not forget what today was. When Matt picked them up from the nursery after church today, they started saying "Party, Party!" when they saw him. We celebrated at Hunny's house with the rest of the family with a Thomas party. The boys are really into Thomas the Tank Engine and monster trucks. They especially love the Gravedigger. Cha Cha and Daddy B got them tickets to Monster Jam, and I know they'll love it! I think that the big boys like Dave, Uncle Two-Two, Josh, and Kevin had as much fun playing with the trains as the little boys did. We had a fun day, and a wonderful weekend. I can't believe that in less than a month, Laeton Reid will be turning one!

Holiday Shower

On Saturday night, some of my family and friends gave me a Holiday Shower. It was so beautiful and fun! I can't believe how much holiday decor Dave and I received. We definitely got a great start on our collection! Thank you to everyone that came, and an even bigger thank you to my wonderful hostesses: Anna Till, Shelli Smith, Kellye Smith, Juni Smith, and Debbie Stuckey. These ladies did a great job! I love you all!

My Little Soccer Stars

I'm so happy that Ramsey and Sydny have moved to Alabama for good! I've missed them terribly over the last five years, and I'm so proud of what sweet and smart children they've become. When they left, they were just babies, and now they're in third and first grade. Ramsey is in Suzanne's class (I'm so jealous Suzanne!) and recently tested into the TAG program. Sydny is loving first grade and making new friends. Dave and I went to their soccer games Saturday and had a great time getting to watch them both play. We never thought we'd get to do stuff like this with them, and it's so nice to be a part of their everyday lives now!

Rachel helped me out BIG TIME with these two.
Thanks Rachel!!!

Sick Day

Yesterday I either caught something from one of my students, or I've run myself down. I think these late nights of grading papers and working on the wedding are starting to catch up with me. Many nights I don't get to bed until 1:00 or 2:00 am. I haven't been this busy since my internship. Dave called to check on me several times last night, and then showed up at my house this morning before he went to work with all of this....
