I will not have a gloat fest. I will not have a gloat fest. I will not have a gloat fest!!!
One really neat aspect of this baby dedication was the fact, Jennifer's sister and her husband were also dedicating their little girl. Jennifer and Jaimie are twins! I love this picture with our pastor and his wife!

On Wednesday, we had a special meeting to discuss the schedule change and the Sunday School hours (our class is moving to 8:30!!!) After a devotional from our pastor we all got to go into the new sanctuary and view the progress so far. There is still some dry wall, paint, and flooring to be completed but we should be able to move in January. It is amazing how fast this went up.
The last picture is a little dark. But at least you can kind of see the seating in the back of the sanctuary.
Bryan is going hunting tomorrow so I'm holed up in the warm house. I plan to accomplished a few projects!!

Last night we had a cookie exchange at our church as a fellowship for the women's ministries. We had to make 3 dozen cookies; have 1 dozen on a plate to share/taste and wrap the remaining 2 dozen in baggies (3 per bag) for ladies to take home. Obviously, not every lady got a sample of every cookie there. I think that must have been part of the fun. Grab what you can as quick as you can!! I made Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookies. Bryan loved them!! He really did!! He said they had a little bit of everything he loves about a cookie and he even asked me to make them for his co-workers for Christmas!

I love showers!!! One of my favorite aspects of a shower is the punch! And I love love love red slushy punch. So we should all have some punch today!!! I think we should also have some of these at this wonderful bloggy shower!!!
On Friday night Bryan's parents came up to our house to celebrate Ed's 60th Birthday!! Our gift to him was tickets to the OU Basketball game and dinner at a Mexican restaurant Ed likes. He doesn't come up to our house often so it was almost more of a treat for us. It seems strange to have a parent who is 60!! I love marking holidays and birthday with memories and I think this night worked!
Below is one of the Griffin brothers who play for OU. It seemed during the game many of the players needed to work on their free throws this week! But OU did come out on top and won!!I tried to get Ed and Bryan to pose for the blog picture and I guess Ed just didn't get it!! :) But I think this is cute anyway! I love seeing the smile on his face!Excuse my hair in this picture. My hair is splitting and breaking off close to my scalp so I'm trying to put less heat on it. This is Bryan's mom and I.We ate dinner at Tarahumara's in Norman. We love this place. I think the food is just as good as Ted's and it's cheaper. I just wish Tarahumara's had Ted's queso and set up. I had to take this picture of my burrito. It literally is 12 inches long!!And, NO, I did not eat it in one setting. I was actually planning ahead for my lunch on Saturday!!

I'm quite behind on blogging and reading blogs, yet once again. But I have to be honest, I have not felt like blogging much and thought for a few days maybe I should stop. But I'm pressing on. I have loved the people I correspond with and those I have met. And I want to maintain those relationships so I apologize for not being up to date in over a week! I plan to try to read some blogs today and catch up throughout the weekend.
The queso is a little blurry but believe me, It is delicious!!!
