Big and Busy Week/Weekend!!!

Well I think we are officially ready for Colt Greggory to be here!! For you that don't know already he will be delivered July 10th at the Shattuck Hospital and until this week I was soooo not ready. Didn't have Riley or his rooms ready for him to come home. Thankfully I have a wonderful Mom and two very talented sisters!!! THANK GOODNESS FOR THEM!!! Anyway the busy week started Wed. when all the girls and 2 very helpful little boys made their way to Woodward. Leia and Lori wanted to surprise me with Riley's new room so I handed over the paint brushes and put all my trust in them....praying that they could get it finished before they left on Sunday (I know them all too well). Well to my amazement they finished Friday just in time for us to stay up extra late and get up extra early to finish Colt's room before the shower on Saturday at 2:00 (we finished at 1:30!!!) Anyway the rooms turned out even better than I could have imagined. Here are a few pics. I didn't get any pics of the work in progress because they closed the door and wouldn't let me see anything until they were completely finished and then of course I had to jump in and help with Colt's room. So here are the end projects!! LOVE THE ROOMS AND LOVE THE ONES THAT PUT IT ALL TOGETHER!! Oh Mom did all the babysitting while we painted I really think she had the hardest job of all!


Here's Ri after everyone left taking a nap in her big girl bed for the first time. She must really love it cause she slept for 3 1/2 hours.


So not only did we paint and decorate but Leia and Lori also threw me a diaper shower. It was sooo nice and Colt recieved a lot of diapers and wipes and some things that come in very handy with new babies!! Thanks to everyone that made it and thanks so much for all the diapers I'm sure we will use every one of them!!! I didn't get very many pictures I'm not sure what I was doing but I did take some of the kids swimming after everyone had left.... they even did some swimming with everyone here. They had a blast!!

How cute are these diaper cakes that Leia and Lori made for Colt.

The only picture I got of Nate all weekend and you can't even see his precious face. He is such a good baby. He got passed around to everyone at the shower and we never heard a peep from him. What a little lover!!

Thanks again to Mom, Leia and Lori for all their hard work this weekend!!! I really really appreciate you and love you!!!! I'm so lucky to have the family that I do!! Oh and I'm even more excited to hear that Tara will be here for when Colt is born and I found out this weekend that Lana and Alyssa will be here too. I'm so excited that Colt will be surrounded by all the people that will love him most in this world!!! Aunt Stephanie will be the only one that can't be there, she will be on a mission trip in Brazil until the 14th. We are very excited for her and will be keeping her in our prayers. We will miss her love there but I know she will be thinking of us on the 10th. Good luck Steph!!! And can't wait to see the rest of you!!!

Well for those of you that know me well you know I'm just not all about the car. I will drive the car till the wheels fall off or it just won't start anymore. Not only that I usually just get the basic of the basic for heaven's sake my last car didn't even have a CD player in it so when I wanted to listen to a CD I had to plug in the old discman, yes that's right they still make those. The grand prix had no tinted windows and no remote door opener and truly I didn't mind driving it, but Gregg had enough. We have a new baby coming, gas prices are, as you all know, are on the rise so room and gas mileage was an issue. We looked around on the computer and had it narrowed down to a few. We headed to OKC to look around and who would of guessed we would of drove a new car home, well if you know Gregg you would have never thought that!!! Anyway here a few pics of our new car and all the extras I got, I feel so spoiled!!!


790 that's how many miles are on the speedometer not how many miles we put on it this weekend!!

Not only do I have a CD will hold 6 CDs. I really don't even think I own 6 CDs.

Yes that's right I can now unlock my doors without being there!! I don't have to stand out in the rain while I find my keys and unlock my door!

Look at all that room, well it's not really that good of pic but I think you'll be really surprised on how much room is in this car!!

And last but not least "THE SUNROOF"!!!! Now for those of you that knew me in high school I kind of had one of these in the black grand am....that is when I would take the glass completely out!!! Tara, Mandy and Mandy I know you remember this, I believe we threw some balloons out of it before!!!
All and all Gregg was pretty calm during the purchase process. Well he did try to get the guy to tint the front windows (my idea) and when the guy said he couldn't do it Gregg asked "How bout one window man?" hahahaha! We did have a small incident on the way home trying to dodge the storms, but we made it in one piece and with no hail damage......Thank God!!!

Watch me swim!!! Can you believe it??!!!


Well has most of you saw from Mandy G's blog we went to the World Series this weekend and it was too too fun!! Not only did we get to see a good game but we got to see really good friends!! Riley of course loved Alberta, the gator, and wanted to kn0w "Where go?" anytime she got of her sight. I got to catch up with Sam and the Garvie's and spent some really good time with my long lost best friend Tara!! I miss them all soooo much and wish we could hang out more often. I was sad on Sunday when the Gator's lost a heartbeaker, we were really looking forward to going on Tuesday and cheering them on, we always have next year though!!! I'm sure they will be back! Talk to you all soon!!!

Riley and Aunt Tara on our way in the stadium.
I think Aunt Tara has won her heart!

Coach em up Tim!!!

Good friends are few and far, way to far, between!!!
