Last weekend, we got to shower Jenny and her little baby with love (and presents!).  She drove up from Florida with her mom, and it was such a treat to see her again and give her a little belly bump.

We played games, ate yummy food, and guessed whose baby picture belonged to which guest.  It was a blast!

Before the shower, Jenny and I got away for just a few minutes to take some maternity photos.  Gotta love morning light!

It was such a joy, friend!  Can’t wait to meet little Squirtle sometime this spring!!

I wanted to surprise-visit my brother for his 40th birthday months and months ago.  Then we found out #2 was coming, and I figured I should be responsible and save the money/time off… plus, I had no idea how I would be feeling at 24 weeks pregnant.  I scrapped the idea back in the summer.

Fast forward to two weeks ago:  I was feeling nostalgic for my firefighting brother as Noah got to experience his first real-live, up close fire truck encounter at our preschool.  I missed our family so much, and really felt pulled to try and make this surprise visit happen.  So I just decided to check ticket prices and found that I actually had a free flight racked up with Delta sky miles!  So in a mad rush, I booked a quick Thursday-Saturday trip to see Mike Day turn 40.

He was so glad I made the trip, and it was such a treat to spend time with him, Jennie, and my two nephews.  Plus, I got to cheer on the Royals in Royals territory on Friday night (thankfully a night they won!)!  We ate good food, celebrated with friends, and snagged some lovely pictures in the midst of all the activity.

So here’s my October photo:  all decked out and ready to cheer on KC in my brother’s backyard!

Blair and Larry tied the knot on a drizzly day in September.  The soft rain couldn’t dampen their spirits, as they were beyond excited to become husband and wife!  They each chose their attendants by their own rules, with a few ladies standing on the groom’s side in lovely gray dresses and the gents in handsome gray suits, and Blair’s bridesmaids wore a deep blue that makes you just want to sigh.

No one looked as stunning as the bride, though:  Blair’s dress was simply breathtaking, and yet it was a mere compliment to her own beauty on her wedding day!

Aaron and Eliza waited a long time to meet this precious bundle of joy.  (Remember their maternity session a few months ago?)  By a beautiful miracle, Eliza went into labor on her own the night before her scheduled induction (10 days after her due date!).  Just a few hours later, Samuel Cole was born, and their lives became something new and different in an instant.

I got to meet little Sam at only 5 days old– what a treat!  It makes me even more excited to meet #2 in a few months!
