I had a crazy-busy weekend!
Not a single second for me to complete a project for my blog!
Friday night, we had our children’s group from our church over to our house for hot dogs and smores!
The rain held off, and we were able to spend some time on my back patio that I have just started renovating.
I added some new ferns to my urns and some accessories to my little white table.
I got out my placemats and added a pretty potted flower that I got on clearance at Lowes.
I moved my extra table out into the yard for extra seating for the kids. :)
Making the smores was my favorite part of the evening!
We feel very blessed to be a part of such a sweet fellowship!
Saturday morning we had 3 baseball games to attend…Luke at 10:00, Adam at 11:15, and Jonathan at 12:00.
They overlapped a little, so I had to stand in between the fields to watch two games at a time.
We are spending more time at the ballpark than at home right now! But I am loving every minute of it! :)
Saturday afternoon, I went to my Aunt Tassy’s home for a wedding shower for my niece, Courtney.
The weather was perfect and so was the party. They certainly outdid themselves.
The entry way greeted us with this cute little display. Aunt Tassy made the monogrammed glass cube as a gift for Courtney to keep.
I loved it! (Hint. Hint, Aunt Tassy)
The punch bowl was surrounded by a bunch of tulle that was attached to a foam wreath…
Courtney’s colors for her wedding are royal blue and gray. So the little glass slippers were filled with blue M & M’s for party favors. (I think the glass slippers were purchased at Hobby Lobby.)
We moved outside to watch Courtney open her gifts.
My sweet Uncle Tommy recently built Aunt Tassy this beautiful covered patio…
There was a beautiful white tent for the bride-to-be to open her presents under…
Aunt Tassy is my mom’s little sister, and she wanted to make this shower extra special for Mom’s oldest granddaughter.
Mom would be so proud of Courtney right now! We are definitely missing Mom during this special time in our family.
We all got a good laugh when Courtney got a “cleaning house” bucket of goodies! I love those rubber gloves from Hobby Lobby!
I never look that good when cleaning my house! What about you?
Here is my beautiful cousin, Whitney, (Aunt Tassy’s daughter) who is expecting her first child within a few weeks. We cannot wait!!!
Aunt Tassy’s property is just picturesque. They have lived there for over 30 years, and I have so many great memories of staying at their house as a child.
It was such a great time, and I truly appreciate Aunt Tassy, Whitney, and Kristin (DIL) for working so hard to put it all together for my sister and her daughter!
But the partying wasn’t over for me yet!
I still had one very special party to put together…
Eli’s 3rd birthday party on Sunday!
He was quite a ham before blowing out his candles!
These pictures are evidence of what sweet tea in a sippy cup can do to a three year old!…
Some of his favorite presents were his new tee and baseball pants from his Papa…
Playing baseball is very serious stuff to Eli!
I have a feeling that tee is going to get a lot of action in the months to come!
I thank God for His perfect gift of Eli to our family who was born on Mother’s Day three years ago. He brings us so much laughter and joy!
I love you, Eli!!!
So as you can see, I had a very busy weekend. And I am all partied out!
So I will say goodbye, and it is time to for me to go to bed!
