I am so jealous!!!

Okay, so my totally hip, cool, awesome parents went to a wedding this weekend and guess who was there!!!
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel!
So it turns out that some long time family friends of ours son got married to Justin Timberlake's first cousin. Justin actually escorted the bride's mother down the aisle! I am soooo bummed that I didn't go to the wedding! (Trav was sick, and I had some other family festivities going on!)
So my dad got to shake JT's hand and talk to him at the wedding reception. Mom reported that Jessica Biel is way more gorgeous in person and was wearing a beautiful peach dress with brown sandals. Way to go mom and dad!

Big Sister Julie

This post is dedicated to my precious girl, who is a fabulous big sister. From the moment Julie met Logan, she was facinated. All of the pictures from the day he was born are of her looking at him!
She just kept touching him and smiling. Even now poor Logan has two mommies. She is constantly telling him no and that if he doesn't stop, he will get a spanking or a time out! If she isn't correcting him, she is "guiding" him during play time (a nice way of saying she bosses him around some!) She can mess with him, but no one else can!
A week ago, I had to spat Logan on the bare leg for the first time, and Julie went crazy yelling at me to not spank her Bubby! (this is Logan's nickname in our family) She hugged him and pat him and told him it would be okay. Logan in turn adores his big sister and loves to aggravate her to the point of tears. He doesn't talk much b/c big sis and mommy anticipates his every need! He calls her ZeeZee right now ( his word for Sissy?) Logan loves to hug his ZeeZee and then pull her hair, but Julie is a great sport most of the time!
Another instance, I had to discipline her, and she was so angry she looked at me with her angry eyes and said, come on Bubby, let's go play! He followed his big sister to her room where they shut the door! I prayed looooong and hard that my two babies would be super close and extremely loyal to eachother, and I am finally seeing my answered prayer~ although sometimes it feels like they are ganging up on me :0) Here's to many years of sibling lovalry!

My PawPaw

My PawPaw passed from this Earth on April 6th, 2008 @ 11:53 pm. I was so blessed that he was such a huge part of my life! My precious cousin Lorin (who is like a sister to me) and I were at his bedside when he passed. We had been laughing and reminiscing about all of our favorite memories of our pawpaw when he passed. We feel like this was an awesome way to go! He was a wonderful man who loved his family. He had a unique sense of humor that only those close to him understood and loved. He had been suffering with several health ailments for the last five years, After a long, tough fight with cancer, he is no longer in pain and resting peacefully :0)
We love you PawPaw and treasure all of the wonderful memories we shared~
