Braden's Baby Shower

On Sunday, my sister Brandi and my two best friends, Molly & Kim, gave me a baby shower for little Braden. It was so nice and I greatly appreciate them doing that for us. We got lots of great things for Braden and we are thankful for our family & friends that came to the shower. We had a great time : )

Friend Get Together

This past Saturday night, I had some of my high school friends over for a Get Together. It had been a long time since I had seen some of them. We graduated from Cedartown High in 1997...I cannot believe it has been that long! Since then, we have all gone to different colleges, gotten married, moved, and some even have children. It was great to catch up with everyone. Hopefully it will not be long until we see each other again : )

Braden's Room

We have been working on Braden's room for a while now. We had to repaint the office which was orange (because it was our Auburn room) to make it the nursery. Brad painted it blue and it looks really good. I was kind of nervous about having a blue room but it turned out great. The black furniture came in and Brad put all of it together. It is now in the nursery and looks nice with the blue walls. We still have a little decorating to do but here are some pictures of what we have so far. It won't be long until little Braden is here to sleep in his room : )
This is the theme of the nursery. It took me forever to find this canvas on Ebay and I am so excited that I finally did!

This is Braden's Jenny Lind crib. Also, the crib set that I found for such a great deal (see previosu post). I decided to do something a little different with his name so I hung the letters with gingham ribbon on a coat rack.

This is the toy bench that I found at Hobby Lobby and the cheap ($2.90) curtains that actually match the bedding that I found on clearance at Babies R Us.

Here is the Jenny Lind changing table. It still needs a cover and baskets but those are coming soon!

This is the chest that still needs a lamp, etc. I want to put a wall quote above this...any suggestions on where to find one?

I am still looking for the musical mobile, and extra gingham crib sheet and possibly the rug. If you come across it (since it is discontinued), please let me know : )

Birthday Celebration at the Lake

This past Sunday we went down to my dad's house on Lake Weiss to celebrate his birthday and also Brad's birthday. Happy Birthday to Brad on Thursday and Happy Birthday to Pop on Friday...we hope that you have a great day! We had lunch and then spent time down at the boat house fishing and then enjoyed a boat ride. Brock, Olivia, and Brad all caught fish (or as Brock would say "shish"). Nanny and Allen enjoyed sitting on the dock while the rest of us went on a boat ride. We had a great time and here are some pictures to show it!

Brock is all smiles because he loves "shishing"

This week Brock has been going to Kindermusik class with his cousin Olivia. They are having the best time! Aunt Brandi and I are enjoying it also. Brock & Olivia are learning songs, playing instruments and having fun! Here are some pictures from today's class.

Panama City Beach

As mentioned in a previous post, we went to the beach with my family in June. We had a great time and the weather was perfect the whole week. We spent lots of time at the beach and the pool. Brock loved playing in the pool and jumping into the water. He is not afraid of the water at all. He also liked riding in his boat in the ocean and playing in the sand with cousin Olivia. Several nights we went to the kiddie park and let Brock & Olivia ride rides. They had a blast! Thanks Granna and G'daddy Greg for the trip...it was great!

Wedding Weekend

This weekend my cousin Anna got married. Brock was the little ring bearer and he was so cute! We had a great time! The Rehearsal Dinner was at the Rome Braves Game. It was so much fun! Brock had a blast at this first baseball game and he even got a foul ball : )

Brock looked great in his tux for the wedding and had a blast at the Reception and even did a little dancing (he got his moves from his dad!) I hope that you had a great 4th of July.
