This past weekend was wonderful! I got to spend four whole days with my family. Thursday I got to see all of my mom's family which was nice. Then Thursday, my sister and I were one of those crazy people up at 4:00 am to find the deals. By 10:00 am we were done and we had a nice nap at home. On Saturday we got to go to Concord/Kanapolis to see my cousin's new house and shop at the HUGE Concord Mall, where we did much more shopping. Sunday was just as great, but a little sad after we had to say our goodbyes.
Okay...so here is my "April" story that happened Monday/Tuesday. Mike and I are going to a ball Saturday so I had ordered a ball gown off the internet (side note, I had Mike measure me). It came in Monday. I go to try it on and it is too short and too big. Yeah! So yesterday I was on a mission to find a dress. I found one, but it needed hemming. So now I'm still crossing my fingers it will be ready in time for Saturday night's ball.

Where has the year gone? Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on all the wonderful blessings God has granted. We are going to be with my family for Thanksgiving this year, which is the first in 8 years. I'm so excited!
2008 has been a really tough year on our family, but it is during the hard times you realize how much you have. I truly have the best husband in the world. During the extremely difficult times this year he has always been by my side to hold my hand, dry my eyes and help pick me up when I couldn't get up on my own. I am so thankful that God brought him into my life. I am truly blessed!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

So this past weekend I was in charge of my baby sister's baby shower. The theme was the sweetest thing. I got the idea off my favorite hostess website, hostess with the mostess. I had huge vases filled with about every candy you could think of. I had 16 lbs of M&M's just to give you an idea of how much candy was there. Here are some more pics of the shower.
The next day was a church shower. Man, Stacy racked up!!! The other picture is the diaper cake I made her for the church shower. I made her a baby book for the first shower.
Congrats Stacy!! Can't wait for Aaden to arrive!!
