Midway Baptist Church BBQ Cook-off

Saturday was a busy day for me....after Megan's Baby Shower I went straight to the Church that Ben Tatum & I attend (my father-in-law James is a preacher there) for the BBQ cook off. It was alot of fun...even though I'm pretty sure that I ate my weight in potato salad and my jeans are not fitting me the same. The kids had a filthy dirty...Tatum threw the biggest tantrum EVER when we told her it was time to get in the car to go home...she finally quit screaming about halfway home only for me to have to wake her up to give her a bath, which, by the way, was no fun...and she was so dirty that she left a dirt ring in the bathtub. hahaha Needless to say I slept like a rock that night.
::the cook-off contestants::
::i am soooo glad i got this picture haha::
::okay...i HAD to blog these!! talk about tough love :) LaRaye bought these for Destini not long after I opened. Destini loves these shoes (if you cant tell) she wears them everywhere. When I saw her in them at the BBQ I couldn't help but smile...and take a picture::

::this is what she looked like right before i woke her up to give her a bath::

Megan's Baby Shower

On Sat. We had Megan's Baby Shower. I had a BLAST!! Not only did I get to see and visit with friends that I haven't seen in what feels like forever, but the look on Meg's face when she walked through the door was PRICELESS!!! We all worked really really hard getting everything together for the shower...and everything turned out perfect. Megan Deserves it....every bit of it. Meg has always been the person who goes out of her way to make Birthdays, Baby showers and any other occasion or Holiday you can think of special and I am so happy that we could all finally get together and do the same for her. Now, I am ready to see Molly Annmarie Speaks...only a little over 4 weeks to go!!!
Megan & Dusty brought me this dresser a few weeks back...Dusty's mom had this dresser and wanted it painted to put in Molly's room (this piece is over 60 years old!!) and I was DETERMINED to get it painted by the shower. It was painted and the crystals were glued on it by the night before the shower...but I can't take all of the credit for it being finished on time...I had ALOT of help!! Christian stayed over at my house late for 2 nights helping me with it and the night before the shower Alyssa & I loaded it up in Ben's truck and we took it to Marchelle's house (where the shower was hosted) and all of us (Christian, Becky, Megan, Marchelle, Alyssa & I) put the lacquer and crystals on it. It was a group effort and I am so thankful that I had so much help from such great friends!!! I love you guys and THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!

Caleigh and her chair

I painted this chair for Caleigh a while back..last summer as a matter of fact...I had it on the website back when I was posting pictures on there but since I started the Blog I just never got around to putting it up. I was looking through my picture albums on my laptop the other day and I came across this picture. It is just too cute not to post it....again :)
