Waco Weekend

Last weekend I was truly blessed by spending precious time with some of my very best friends. Thanks to Nick's mom I was able to squeeze in some child-free girl time in Waco. Our weekend was planned around 2 special babies. Baby Clark arrived early on Monday so Katy stayed home and skipped out on the pedis considering Clark was only 4 days old. However Baby Julia isn't due to arrive until early Fall so Lauren was pampered and honored at the pedi pampering shower.

After pedis we took our mobile shower to Baby Clark and Katy.

Anne-Marie - Clark's adorable big sister.
I would love an arranged marriage between Brooks and this sweet girl! Her parents are the bonus!

My blessings!

How adorable are these for "take-aways". Mama Katy is so creative!

After showering...we stayed up late talking and playing with this sweet girl. Payton was born in Feburary while we were in Doha. I've missed a lot of babies that have been born so its been fun meeting a lot of new little ones.

The next day we slept late and enjoyed the sun.

We spent the afternoon with Katy again.
These are pics of her adorable nursery.

Check out this cuteness. Notice the bicycle canvas that Katy painted herself!

Clark and his Daddy

Ahh...Ninfa's for dinner. Awesome! - we missed you, Shannon and Katy!

Of course I couldn't resist a few BU purchases for my little bears at home.
The insisted to wear them for PJ's.

AAAAAA......Sic'Em Bears!!

Thanks Shan, for being the photog...great pics!

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."

I am smiling at my screen because of seeing you smile, Wen. What a blessing it is to have Godly women friends like the Waco crew. Can I bring them over here for you? Husbands can come too...

Boys...get your paws up y'all...

Really Nick...you have to stop. I do great until I get to this point and then have tears running down my face because of your sweet messages! You wife sure does miss you and love you! We are so thankful to have her here with us for a little while.
