One of my Favorite weekends spent with my favorite people

This weekend we had Jenn and Phil over. We had supper: Meatball subs, chips, veggies and dip, cheese ball and hot fudge brownies for dessert. We had so much fun. We girls and found out the guys too...talked about their wedding. I got to try on my dress. Very pretty...a tad big, but after altering it will work. The boys were laughing their heads off on YOUTUBE and then got us in to it. Then they decided to make some prank phone calls...Jenn and I felt like we were back in grade school, but it was really funny. Guess we all have our times of "rolling back to our childhood". We didn't get to bed till about 2:30.
Saturday we got up and we went to Flower Factory...actually we girls did, looking for wedding stuff and I got some scrapbook things and a new item for my bedroom. The guys set out in the car after a quick trip to McD's for a drink. Then we all went to the mall. We had so much fun. We ate lunch and sat and talked forever. After we hurried back home, we both had cook outs to go to we parted ways. I was so glad to spend time with one of my bestest and LONGEST friend...and to just catch up. And also to get closer to Phil...who I think brings out the best in Jenn!!!! I am so excited that they are getting married.

the happy couple
Friends forever
After 5 years we still do the "KISSY FACE" thing!!!!
Happy fathers day, daddy!!!! I love you and am so blessed to have you as a father!!!!
Dad's mom and dad came down for a cook out. Brandon was not able to be there due to working in Kansas. But we all had a blast playing CORN HOLE. Tasha and I took on everyone else. We won 4 out of 5 games. (acutally Tasha won...I just helped. She is an expert at this game.)

Rain, Rain Go away!!!

I am thankful that my house and all my belongings are safe and drying out. My brother-in-law Steve did not fair as well.

Here is after a several hours of rain. Notice you can see the wall around the lights and flowers. The wall is about 3 bricks high.

You can no longer see the wall!!!!
His back yard
As most homeowners in Indy know, that not many own Flood insurance. Well even after the rain died down in Terre Haute, a levy also broke, so the water level continued to climb. Thankfully as of now the water level has stopped climbing and other than Steves garage, the inside of the house doesn't seem to have damage. Please pray that this is so....this is another thing in a long line for Steve. Because any damage will come out of his pocket unless FEMA would step in, Possibly!
Keep Steve in your prayers!! I am sure there are more of you out there that went thru the same thing as this...my prayers go out to you.

A fun weekend

Headed to Sherilyn and Andy's wedding in Kuntuckey. I rode with Robbins, because Jonathan had to work. We stopped at Burger King and there I found "MY LITTLE KING" I think he liked the hat or at least didn't mind it.

Their wedding was beautiful, yet simple. Andy and Sherilyn sang togather a few times and they sounded beautiful! Sherilyn looked like Cinderella...she was quite a beautiful bride!
The Happy couple!
I spent the night at Regi and Jay's house. We had alot of fun. Mom and Dad came over and mom was looking at Regi's quilts before we headed out to eat. Here she is with "HER" quilt, but she didn't know it was hers yet. She was just asking "This isn't mine to keep?"
Now she knows that it is!! She was so happy to be an owner of Regi's "Playing out loud" quilt!

Inspecting Reg's Handiwork! She is an awsome quilter.

Owner and Maker of "Playing Out Loud"

We headed down to the river and ate at Don Pablos..after several pictures. I was quite lonely without Jonathan. (Sorry you didn't come Sweetheart!!! I love you.)

Regi pretending that she is shorter then me. Fat chance...I will always be 'Shorty' compared to her.

Congrads Brooklyn Class of 2008!!!!!

Aunt Kim...finding her quilt.

She was quite excited!

Mom and Aunt Kim with their new quilts. Regi said it took her about 4 1/2 months to complete the quilts.

Way to go Brooklyn...Hope all your dreams and wishes and prayers come true. You deserve the very best.
