My Nieces and Nephews

Talk about some good looking kids. Our nieces and nephews came to visit this weekend along with my Dad, Grandmother and Sister Alisa. We had so much fun being together. This picture was taken by our friend Jawan at the Easter Egg Hunt. I'll try to put up some more pictures when I can.

Shower Time

Chrissy has now had 3 showers. Unfortunately (and I'm being sarcastic), they've all been girl showers so I haven't been able to attend. The 1st one was with the teachers from her school. The second was in Anniston with the church she grew up in. The latest one was last week given by our Church here in town, Westminster. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from the Anniston shower, but our friend Jawan provided some from the latest shower here in Columbus.

Chrissy has so many wonderful friends.

There was a hole bunch of good food. Fortunately there was some left over when I came to pick her up!!!

Huntsville Times

We are here in Huntsville, AL for a class Chad is taking. We got into town Sunday night just in time for supper at Dreamland BBQ, yummo. I have family that live here so if course I called my cousin Steffany to see if we could hang out some this week. Steffany had been shopping at a place called Kids Market. It's like a very large 2 week long yard sale for kids clothes, toys, and other stuff. I had to check it out and get a few things for Matilda. I would have bought more but I have no clue how big Matilda will be and I don't want to buy clothes that she won't be able to wear or buy summer clothes when she will fit into them in the winter. I looked for warm 6-9 months clothing and this is what I got for $17.

Notice the camo pants, those are for Chad. He wants to get Matilda a Patriots jersey so she can wear it with camo pants just like her Daddy (it's his favorite outfit that he wears constantly, I have a hard time getting the chance to wash his jersey). When I got back to the hotel and I ran into Capt. Hacket, now she's Major Hacket, who was one of my ROTC instructors in college. It was so neat to run into her. She's here teaching a logistics class. Last night Chad worked on his fantasy baseball team and looked at Red Sox stuff for hours. Tonight he's not allowed to even get on the computer he's only allowed to take me out for supper and study and cuddle with me some.

A Baby Shower

Friday night the teachers threw me a shower and it was so nice. They really did too much. The food was great and so were the presents. I had lost my camera so I wasn't able to take any pictures at the shower ( I am hoping that I can make some copies from the people that did bring their camera ). I did find my camera yesterday so here are a few pictures.

One of the teachers, Theresa, made the cake, it was yummy. This is the top layer that I brought home, yeah for cake! Oh, the teddy bear is cake and icing also.

This is a Winnie the Pooh quilt that Julie, the other K-3 teacher, made for Matilda. Isn't it beautiful?

Here is a picture of all the presents. They were so generous they also gave me a $200 gift card. I feel so loved. I told you they did too much. Thank you to all my friends at WCS, the shower really meant a lot to me.
