Just wanted to pop on and put up a picture of a little girl I met Thursday, March 27th at 2:06pm!!  She weighed 7 pounds and 1 ounce!  And she is BEYOND beautiful!!  I was so blessed to be a part of her birth day!!  Thank you Ashlee for letting me be there for all of it!!

Remembering and Reliving

A new baby girl will be entering my world tonight or tomorrow!  My bestie, Ashlee, is being induced!!  I cannot wait to be a part of the birth, to witness new life coming into the world, to be a support for Ash and to love on them till they make me leave!!

But being on the other side of labor (the support person) makes me think of how much I miss little babies....their snuggles, the newborn cry, fresh clean diapers right out of the bag, big toothless grins.  So when I came across this precious picture of B, I might have cried...a little.  Isn't she the cutest?  YES, yes she is! :)

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your blessings, thank you for this precious gift of life.  I ask Lord that you watch over Ashlee and Camille...that they would both be healthy and happy through this entire birth process.  That Ashlee would have an easy labor and delivery as well as an easy recovery.  Lord help me be a great support to them in any way I can.  Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a part of this amazing event.  Thank you for you love and comfort and peace.

Photo Dump...Week of Feb 23

Sunday the little girl and I wore matching denim...She was much cuter, but still I think we were a pretty awesome pair! :)

After church and lunch it was time for Keegan's 5th Birthday party...and I didn't get a single pic of the little guy!  Ha!  

This pic was taken pre-scared-out-of-his-ever-loving-mind.  He AND B both had on life jackets, and decided to go down the huge water slides at the deep end.  Well, I let them...while Joey looked on in terror.  Neither one was prepared as they hit the water and couldn't touch the bottom!  B freaked out, but doggy paddled to Ashlee on the other side of the pool.  While Owen flipped out and splashed around like a lunatic.  I finally got his attention and showed him how to paddle, and he calmed down and made his way to my side of the pool.  Well, that pretty much ruined him getting back in...he just sat on the edge the rest of the party...kicking his feet in the water every once in a while.  Great. :(  He did have fun though...playing with noodles and other fun swim stuff!

Our sweet friends from church brought over their daughter's Barbie is AWESOME!!  I want to go in there and play myself!

Monday morning this was my view...and what do you think is in that package in the floorboard?  You won't guess correctly, so I'll just tell ya!  It's Ashlee's pee.  Yep.  Pee.  With all her high blood pressure readings they are making her collect all her urine on Sundays...then she brings them in on Monday morning...or I do OR Krys does.  It takes a take in Ashlee's pee.  Bwahahaha!!!  I wonder if she's embarrassed yet!  :)  Love you Ash!

Wednesday night at Gopher Buddies I wanted to get a picture of our preacher's wife...Vicki!  She is amazing and so kind and so patient with all the kids.  But she is always commenting on how good our two are and that makes me feel so good!  They were playing a game while I took their pics!

 Thursday my boss, Sara, was S.I.C.K with the stomach bug so I got to help open up school and greet all the parents!  I enjoyed it, even though it was cold!  

Friday....WW meeting...they are pretty good boys!!!

Friday was a half day and all the kiddos in the entire close vicinity hung out and played!!  I love having so many GOOD kids for my kids to play with!  I did a whole post of this HERE!

Friday dinner with the folks and Grandma!!

My dad...I have no words!! 

Saturday I went with Ashlee to run "an errand" and while she ran in I took some pics of her CRAZY BOYS!! 

New spring wreath on the door...even though it was still cold...BUT it was the first day of March!!  :)

Mom texted me this picture...what I great Grandpa!  No wonder they love going to their house!! 

But in total Owen form, he was throwing up by the end of the day! ;(  So typical...he was fine a few hours later thankfully!

On to March!!!  I'm almost caught up!  Ha!

Photo Dump...Week of Feb 16th

IGC...President (because ya know, it was Presidents Day): Zachary Taylor, my distant relative.

We hung out in the front lawn for a little bit Monday...the boys really enjoy digging in dirt...and stabbing my grass with screwdrivers!!:)

I made Ranch was fantastic.  And the best part is that the kids loved it!!

Tuesday Finley had a performance at school.  It was called "Shiver Me Timbers" and obviously it was a pirate theme!  Haha!!  Lulu joined in...not so willingly!

Yep....Owen wanted to dress up too!  And he wanted to go like this to the actual show.  I love this little man!


I had a date with Obug...

...before Gopher Buddies at church!

Friday night...Breslyn, Mrs. Traci (shower co-host) and I went shopping for the shower!!  We had a great time together!  B and I went and had dinner together afterwards!

Saturday was THE SHOWER!!!  Here are a few pics, but I did a blog post on it HERE!

There ya have it!  Again, it was another great week...super busy and fun!!
