These are just a few of the images I shared with the class!
Speaking of Christmas...I started looking at cards this week online. I know it's only August! Did you know you can get them for nearly half off this time of year. So this weekend I am making Patrick go ahead and take our photo for the card so that I can get them ordered. Also at my office we've started addressing all sorts of things with this awesome machine that actually writes the addresses on the envelopes with an ink pen but it is led by the computer so you can do pretty much any font. We did my bosses, step-daughter's wedding invitations last week and they look awesome. So if you know anyone getting married or needing anything addressed (like Christmas cards, or birth announcements) let me know. We are charging $1.oo per envelope ($2.00 for wedding invitations b/c they are 2 envelopes). We require that your list be typed and we will need roughly %10 more envelopes (b/c we will mess up getting the line up set). If you would like to see a sample that can be arranged just let me know!
Football is just right around the corner. I'll have a big post coming up about that . Over at Alabama Bloggers there will be a carnival going on next week to show your team colors. You can write about anything. I plan on doing a tailgate review! I'm super excited!
The sashes I made for everyone! They looked so good!

Her cousin BellaThis was taken Saturday. One year after we brought her home!
Last week as one of my friends from high school was putting the final touches in order for her wedding on Friday her little sister sat in a hospital room waiting to hear the word on the large tumor found on the base of her spinal cord. It has made me hurt for this awesome family. I remember the week of my wedding and how excited I was for everything. They found out the tumor was cancer, she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. When I hear those words I am reminded of my Mimi who died of this terrible disease. She was 80 years old and had lived a wonderful life. Kendall has just started her wonderful life. I hurt for Bragan the beautiful bride who carried on her wedding without her Maid of Honor. I think about Ms. Tammy who carried the guilt of leaving Kendall's side to fulfill her role as Mother of the Bride. All in all it was a wonderful wedding and I think a good time was had by all...which was exactly what Kendall wanted everyone to do. They set up a web cam so that Kendall could watch from her hospital bed. When The bride and groom left they went to the hospital to take some photos in the chapel at the hospital with Kendall.
This is one of those things in life that makes you sit back and thank God for your health and family and the health of your family because in an instant it can all change. I can't imagine how I would feel if my little brother was beginning this journey like Kendall is (they are the same age).
If you are the praying type...please keep Kendall and her family in your prayers as they begin this journey. Here is a link to the blog that Kendall's stepfather as set up to keep everyone updated while they are in Houston.

For our honeymoon we rented a little house off of Englewood Beach in Central Florida. One day we drove to Bush Gardens in Tampa. One day we drove all the way to West Palm Beach to rub elbows with the rich and famous. We didn't stay long...it cost $2 to park for 45 minutes to go to the beach!
