Celebrating Life Together

Brad, Brock and I are very blessed to have a church that we really like. We attend Midway Macedonia here in Villa Rica and have been members there since 2004. We are part of a Life Group that we also really like. Our pastor, Todd, says that the purpose of a Life Group is to celebrate life together. This past Sunday, our group was nice enough to give us a Baby Shower for little Braden. We were blessed with lots of nice things and we are grateful for all of them. Thanks to everyone in our group for making it so special!
The gifts that we received

Look at this precious diaper wreath that my friend Megan made...isn't it so cute!

This past weekend Brad and I took a little trip to Nashville. My dad and step-mom gave us a gift certificate for Christmas to Opryland so we decided to use it before little Braden arrives. We went on Friday and came back on Sunday. We spent Friday at Opry Mills shopping and riding the Delta Riverboats inside Opryland. On Saturday we went downtown to The Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. That night we went to the Grand Old Opry. Many guests were there but my favorite was Vince Gill (2nd photo below) and Josh Turner (1st photo below). I love Vince Gill so it was a treat to get to see him : ) Sunday we just had breakfast then headed to pick up Brock. Part of the Christmas gift was for my dad (Pop) and my step-mom (Dee) to keep Brock. They had a great time together. Thanks for the trip, we had a GREAT time!

Up, Up & Away

Tonight Brad, Brock and I went to the Hot Air Balloon Festival here in Villa Rica. I thought that Brock would really like it since he loves balloons! He had the best time : ) We got to see them blowing up the balloons, taking people on rides, etc. We decided that Brock was too young to ride in one but maybe next year. We told him that we would bring him and Braden next year and Brock said that Braden would be scared...he is already looking out for his little brother. So sweet!
