The Weekend

We had a fabulous weekend. Curtis, Amanda, Jackson & Annabeth came in town!!! I am the worst friend ever and never made it down to Houston to meet Annabeth. So I have been so anxious to meet her and she is just as beautiful as all the pictures show her to be. I actually had a flashback because she looks just like Jackson did, except with a bow. Those same big blue eyes took me back to 3 years ago.

I am kicking myself that I never got a picture with her, but here is one with her & Heath.

We got to hang out with them and Xavier, Sunni, Ava & Clara on Saturday! Jackson, Ella & Ava have known each other since their first days of life and that bond is was still apparent this weekend. They love each other.

Good friends

They started right where they left off!

Our hubbies so sweetly watched the 3 older ones, so Amanda, Sunni & I could get away for lunch and actually finish a conversation. It was great catching up!

Sunni has that Floam stuff. The kids loved it.

Jackson was doing some crazy stuff with it entertaining Ava & Ella.

After the Floam excitement, they took a break to watch Monsters, Inc. It was hilarious watching their expressions.

Ella & Ava...such the Miss Prisses

Sunni ordered the most adorable cake so we could celebrate their birthdays all together.

Amanda got the girls matching outfits from Baby Gap! I love it!!

Ava & Ella ended their evening with a tea party in the bathtub.

The next morning, the Jones's came to church for a visit. Everyone was so excited to see them. Pastor John made an announcement welcoming them back. I think it took Amanda 20 minutes to get out of the nursery because there was a line of people waiting to meet Annabeth. They are so loved!
After church, we got to have lunch with the Jones's & the Calverts who we always love hanging out with and don't get the chance to enough.

It was such a great weekend!! Thank you guys for tackling a drive with a newborn and a 3 year old!! We love y'all!

Oh, what a fun weekend! That cake is so cute - and I can only imagine how much fun you all had with your broods. Aren't girlfriends (and couple-friends) the best?

Amanda said...

Your pictures are so fun! I might have to borrow some! We had a blast. It didn't help with my problem of missing y'all. It definitely made it worse!

I love friendship!! I love to see it captured in pictures--of both the young ones and the adults. There's nothing like the smile a friend brings.

Y'all look gorgeous!!
Love and prayers

Sounds like a wonderful weekend to have your group together again. I love the pictures of the 3 year olds watching Monsters, Inc. So cute!

I'm sad the weekend is over! It was so fun! And you got great pics!

I am just thrilled you got to meet Miss Annabeth and see your friends! I know the feeling of waiting to meet a BFF's baby and it is the worst. One of my BFF's had her second baby in Africa so I had to wait till she came home. It about killed me! It looks like y'all had a great weekend. And that cake is precious!
