The Weekend

My niece and nephew spent the night this weekend. Morgan wanted to sleep on the pink snowman sheets before it was time to take them off. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of them, but I got a picture of their "guys". This is when Morgan put them down for a nap.

Honey bear is the second from the left. I gave him to Morgan on Valentine's Day 8 years ago. He has been loved to pieces. My sister has had to restuff him and sew him quite a bit. He's a lot skinnier then he used to be, and he's balding.

This weekend we also Celebrated my friend Courtney's 31st birthday. What a difference a year makes. You can see Courtney's 30th birthday here. Last year we were both wanting to be moms. This year Courtney has brand new twins at home and I have one in the oven. God is good.

I also redeemed myself by attempting to make the Giant cupcake cake again.

This is what it looked like last time I tried to make it:

Marcus made some delicious brisket. He never messes up his recipes.

We took the food to Courtney's, because it's a lot easier to come to her these days.

Here are the husbands, Stephen (Courtney's baby daddy and husband, my husband, and Atticus, Anna's husband)

Here is Courtney with Charis.
She just had twins 3 weeks ago and has a totally flat stomach! It's a little irritating.

And here's Drew.

I can't show one without the other.

And I wanted to show you their super cute nursery:

And I forgot to get a picture of Anna. I just happen to have this picture of her in her pantry, and I have wanted a reason to put in on my blog. So here is my chance.

She's got one in the oven too! It will be her THIRD!

I hope you all had a great weekend too!
