As the craziness of last year started to wind down, new pregnancies were announced, two amazing friends are now engaged and Andy set the competition schedule for the year. I don't think life is ever going to slow down but to cherish all these moments, I want to keep posting about them here just for my own personal enjoyment and reflection on this amazing life God has given me and all the people who I get to share it with. On to Another Year of Babies, Brides, and BBQ
I started this post almost 2 years ago and never got around to actually finishing it and getting it posted. Better late than never, I guess. Well even if you've been following my blog for awhile or are a new reader, I will recap on the last three years in our little lives
This last week was a wonderful combination of business and relaxing-ness. We had an out of town (Laughlin) BBQ competition last weekend, the best part was that we weren't vending food so us girls just got to relax, play cards, and just catch up with one another. Another fantastically great part was that the whole Chapin family got to come out, so that not only meant time with Jamie but with her adorable kiddos (seriously look at those faces! ugh!). After a great weekend, this week so far has been so nice too. Busy yet not too much, a great balance of work/freelance with some downtime at night and I even got to fit in a Disneyland trip for a couple hours on evening! Whoo to the hoo! But seriously, November is now half over? Whaaaat? How's your November been? 8/something I do everyday, 9/small, 10/can't live without, 11/night, 12/drink, 13/where I slept, 14/man-made, 15/in my bag
This is the last post before the October and November weddings, eeeek!!!! Babies! Jameson Jameson totally crashed Brittany's first bridal shower but it's okay, we got to have a little photo shoot with him on the grass. Oh and then he came to our annual hotluck (his mama Courtney was pregnant with him at last years!). And I got to feed him his dinner and oh my was that so fun! He just loves to eat, it was cracking me up! Plus my grandpa asked to hold him and Jmo was so entranced by his glasses, so so cute! He really just keeps getting cuter and cuter and just has the best personality! Owen!! Oh this baby
This is a lighter post of the series but it's truly the calm before the super fun storm coming up! Babies! Jameson Little Jameson has been growing and growing and growing. It's been almost two months since I have seen him but when I did get in a visit he got to show me all his new tricks like eating baby food from a spoon and bouncing in his bouncer. Oh I miss him, Mama Courtney!!! Owen!! Baby Owen has been chunking up before our very eyes. All I want to do is kiss those cheeks!! I am so thankful for how much time we spend with the Chapins and their boys. Owen and I got to spend a few special "first time with Sam" moments together all in one night, I got to feed, burp, and put him to sleep, and then he peed and spit up all over me! It's love for sure! Grayson!! Oh and this baby. He's still the smallest of course but there's evidence of a second chin coming in! Not only did I get the chance to feed him too, we even got to have a slumber party with all the cuddling I wanted! Plus Jessica and I worked on his
I really should have split this post up month by month but here's two months of babies, brides, and BBQ! Babies! Jameson Bath time fun with J at 3 months. Amelia Maybe the last visit with the little miss before the Logue's move to San Diego. So sad for us but so happy for them and the work they are doing! Owen!! Little Owen arrived Monday, April 9! Little Eli just loves to show off "his baby" to anyone and everyone. They are just the cutest little brothers ever! The little photo collage are all from the night Owen was born, the next black and white photo is Owen at 10 days old settled in at home. Grayson!! Little Grayson arrived six weeks after his best friend Owen. This first photo is Grayson at about 14 hours old (the first time I saw him) then at 4 days old. Such love for this long awaited little guy! Brides Things are coming together for the brides. A lot of the big stuff has been taken care of and the details are working themselves out. Lauren and I finished up her Save the Dates
With weeks of planning, Rooftop BBQ is heading to Stagecoach Thursday morning to compete plus vend to the public for the three days of the shows. I don't know about you but I am most excited to see Steve Martin perform. I may be the only one who is more excited for a band that isn't even headlining. So who else is going?? I was looking up photos for the Rooftop blog yesterday so I thought I'd share some from the event last year too! Like when we met some of the members of the Rascall Flatts band! Or like when Lauren and I finally figured out we could save seats before the public and we were on the jumbo screen! I am especially excited for next week when my hubby can finally relax after a very long month of work and BBQ! But seriously, who's going?? Let's meet up! And if you are going to be there, make sure you come by our BBQ booth: Rooftop BBQ!
I totally planned to only post this every two months but March was just overflowing with babies, brides, and BBQ! Between baby showers, bridal birthdays, engagement parties, plus barbeque competitions and the launch of two more barbeque products
