Celebrations of Life!

Well I guess I have fallen behind on blogging...so there will be quite a few pics here.

On September 19th, we went out to Chino Latinos' for my brother Lances' B-day...he was the Big 30! It was Lance, Juliana, my mom, Eric, Matt and I...Brian had to work =(

Here is Lance and Juliana...they like to be silly sometimes!


My mom and Eric...
Matt and I...
Saturday night (Sept. 20th), Lance and some of his friends headed out to do a pub crawl. Matt went along, and of course needed a costume. He custom made Lance and him helmets and they wore them along with painter suits. He just totally cracks me up, and he is soooooo creative. I told him he will be making our childrens' halloween costumes for sure. I have yet to see pics of Lance in his outfit but here is Matt!!
On the 23rd my mom and I headed to Duluth so that I could get a hair and makeup trial, we had fun! This is the only picture I can show you because I wouldn't want Matt to see what my hair will be like...gotta keep something a surprise! Jocelyn at ShearKatz was very sweet.
On the 24th, I headed up to Tanger Outlet Mall and met up with Lynn and Ava and Marianne and Jacob. I can see how shopping with a stroller would be a bit of a chore...I was their door opener for the afternoon, but I didn't mind! The babies were so good, pretty much slept the whole time! After leaving the mall I went over to Lynn and Jamies and then Ava was wide awake. Isn't she just precious?!
Look at her tiny little fingers!

And the feet...
I know I have said it before, but it is so fun to see my friends transition into motherhood!
On Friday the 26th Matt and I went to see Eagle Eye, which was a good movie but creepy in the sense that you wouldn't want it to happen!
Saturday we headed into Wisconsin in the evening to hang out with our friend Larry and his family. These people know how to throw a party. A huge, huge pot of Chili with all the extra fixins', karaoke, a garage with screen doors with tables and chairs and a bonfire...who could ask for more! The karaoke was highly entertaining...some really good voices, some funny songs and some songs that I just have never heard!

Sunday afternoon I had my first shower. My aunt Denice through it at her house and her girls and my other aunts and mom helped out as well! Wow, do I feel blessed for such wonderful people in my life! We had my family, some of Matts family as well as some of my friends there. It was GREAT! We at Mexican food, talked, played original games and I opened gifts. Everyone was so generous. The only thing I wish is that I would've had more one on one time with the guests.

Denice made this cool fruit boquet!

Noelle was very nice to take pictures for me! I got some wonderful gifts.
