Thankful for these two Thursday....

They are my world, they make my days and I wouldn't trade even a SECOND of cleaning up after them for all the tea in China...

How did I get SO SO SO blessed?

Coming Back Into It

Last week Miss B and I were knocked OUT by what will only be referred to as "the plague". Complete with cough, fever, body aches (oh the body aches) and downright MISERABLE feeling. Minnie managed to just skirt it with a dry cough and Husband got the head cold. A week I NEVER want to re-live.

Miss B also worked on getting all FOUR eye teeth through... so that was fun.

On SUNDAY however I thought maybe we were all well enough to go out to breakfast before church... to see the celebrity that was "in town" staying with the CountryRents for the night

Miss B barely made it through breakfast before she needed to go back home but it was so nice to spend time with Aunt Beth.
This is a busy season but I have GOT to get back into blogging. I really do love to look back at our day to day lives and take pictures of our fun... course we need to HAVE some fun ;) now that Mama is off the couch/bed/floor we are praying for better weather and sunny days ahead.

Track Girls ~ Annual Pasta Feed :)

It's ALWAYS helpful to have a friend :)

before 40 teenage girls invaded my home to eat pasta and hang out. I LOVE SPAGHETTI DINNERS! :)

This Girl.... (GA gets married)

It blows my mind to think that this girl has been in my life for 12 years, eating dinner at my kitchen table, having sleepovers, doing life with us and is now a WIFE :) Time...there's just no stoppin' it.

The gals in this Mouse House have been OVER THE MOON excited about GA's wedding and all the festivities :) Especially the two biggest gals that live here (ahem) :)
On Friday we were invited to pop over to the salon where all the girls in the family/wedding party were getting their nails done. I gave my gals mani/Pedi's before we left.

GA's Momma with her two grandmommas :)

FUN TIMES at the salon :)

I posted this on FB the day of the wedding. I said "it's gonna be hard to tell who's more excited" :) Minnie was just BESIDE herself with anticipation of seeing GiGi get married :) I was excited as well but was def. having a hard time with all the emotions going into the happiness :)

Plus after I looked at that picture above... I looked at this picture I have on my fridge...
and realized yet again just how FAST time goes!
It scares me to think that it will go by in a blink of an eye and it'll be these two :) (ack!)

and don't even get me STARTED on this one :)

We just had the best time visiting and getting all caught up in the preparation for the next day! I LOVE being a girl! :)

Saturday was the wedding. I had to take a pic of GA's car parked between these signs. Gotta love being the bride :)

so excited!

Do you see it? The sweet moment of GA's Momma giving her new son-to-be a kiss and a whisper? :)

and a special moment with his soon to be FIL :)

 Poor little ring bearer. It is SO intimidating walking into a room full of people starting at you :) So cute! He snapped right out of it once he got to his Mama :)

ah the eye water :)

can you blame him? :) She was gorgeous! I wanted to zoom in on this picture but I didn't want to crop out her friend Grace's reaction. SO SWEET!

They each took a turn signing their family Bible while GA's sister and BIL sang. It was beautiful!


Off to the PAH-TY! Special side note... Minnie's dress is the same dress that Sky wore to JJ and J's wedding 6  years ago. She was SO proud to be wearing it and told everyone it was her cousin's dress and that it was worn her to Aunt and Uncle's wedding :) So stinkin' cute!

This picture (taken by SIL L) cracks me up. You can put a girl in a fancy dress but she's still gonna play with her little people and joke with them just like she always does :)

Party Peeps :)

All the little people DYING for a piece of cake...

or at least just a taste :)

an AMAZING weekend GA! We love you and Josh and are so thrilled for both of you!
