Wednesday, April 9th

I am still alive.....barely. I went to the YMCA and park yesterday and I walked 3 miles and then worked out! I think I died 87 times!!!!!! I plan to do the same thing today. I'm not sure if I will make it! HA! HA! I am so out of shape.

Bryan and I had a busy weekend. We really have fun but I'm kind of ready for life to slow down a little bit. It seems like we had something every weekend in March and now April is looking the same way.

My nephew, Will, celebrated his 13th Birthday on Saturday. His party was Saturday but his actual birthday is today! Happy Birthday Will!!!! He got some wonderful gifts...movies, clothes, cell phone, and gift certificates. Isn't Will a handsome teenager!! His birthday cake was a dirt cake, thus the reason for the flowers! It is made with oreos, pudding, and I'm not sure what else. Jennifer, my sister, had put gummy worms down in the cake! She's a great mom!

Whitney (my cousin's wife) and I met earlier on Saturday for breakfast and then drove out to Tuttle for the party. We ended up picking something up at Panera Bread and then running to the mall to get Will's gift certificates (we were running behind schedule). After the party, we went shopping. She is expecting and is due in September so we were looking for some pants and shirts for her. We both had great luck in finding some bargains. Katie, her daughter, was visiting her dad and remember Eric is training in Georgia and Bryan was at a gun show. So, it was just the two of us. I really enjoyed my time with Whitney. We were able to talk freely and share our thoughts with one another. We had not had a chance to really sit and visit for some time. It seems like there is always something else that demands our time and/or attention. We were wiped out by the end of the day! I did find some cute shirts at JCPenney.

This is the sweet sweet baby Bryan and I have at 8:15 Sunday School. Her name is Isabella but she goes by "Bella". She is so adorable. We live for Sunday mornings when we can hold her and cuddle with her. After my surgery I had to take about 6 weeks off from the 8:15 nursery time and I missed Bella. We have been back for about 2 weeks and I really think she missed us!! Before Bryan took this picture Bella was on the verge of a minor breakdown, but once Bryan took the first click, she was on top of her game. She loved having her picture taken.

In case you think we have picked favorites, she is only 1 of the 2 babies/toddlers we have at 8:15. Our other one was not there last Sunday or I would have taken his picture too.

And yes, I did wear jeans to church. I was going to be in nursery 2 of the 3 hours I was at church last Sunday so I needed to be in something I could get on the floor in. This is also one of my new shirts from Penney's!! It was very comfortable!!!
