Whew! What a weekend!

What a whirlwind weekend and busy couple of days!!!  We had a football game Friday night (so the girls twirled their flags), Saturday morning was busy with Becca getting her hair done, Emily working, grocery shopping, and Sarah arriving home for a short visit.  We spent Saturday afternoon getting everyone beautiful for the Homecoming dance.  I must say that we were fairly successful.  Emily and Becca looked absolutely stunning.  It's always fun to see these kids (and their friends) get dressed up -- it's such a welcome change from the normal jeans and t-shirts with their hair pulled up in ponytails.  A few curls, some hairpins, and a lot of hairspray got us through!

I'm happy to report that they both had a fantastic time.  We had a bunch of the juniors over for a while afterwards, and as pumped as they were, I can tell they had a great time!

Sunday we were able to celebrate my nephew's upcoming wedding with a bridal shower for his fiance.  It's always fun to see what the new presents are out there, and wish a little bit that I could have my bridal shower all over again and get some new things!  She got some beautiful things.

Afterwards, we were blessed that my nephew and his wife spent some time at our house with their baby boy, Fritz.  He is such a good little boy.  It was fun to have some snuggle time with him.  :)

No real words of wisdom or inspiration from me today.  Well, maybe a few.  I love my family........so so much.  I'm trying to enjoy every moment with all of them.  I've learned by watching Sarah go away to college this year that way too soon they will be flying the coop.  It's good to grow up, but it's also good to remember the times when you were little and still lived at home.  I love them so much!
