I had a really blessed weekend. Sam was up in Salem looking for a home for us, so I went down to Porterville to see my newest nephew. I stopped in Fresno on Saturday to see T.J. & Becca (Becca's birthday was Saturday) and Ashley and Rusty. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures with them, even though my sweet niece and nephew are adorable. Seriously, I don't even think I'm biased, they are literally two of the cutest kids I've ever seen. If you don't believe me, go look at pictures on Becca's blog.
Saturday morning I got to spend time with Jacquie, Annie, and Kayla, some friends from Porterville. Each of these friends honestly deserves their own post (shoot, I haven't done my friendship posts in too long!), as they each have such sweet spirits. So....more to come on them later! It was such a great time and I was so thankful to be able to hear about their lives and be encouraged by them. I miss them!
Then I got to meet sweet Nathan! He is tiny and precious. I also got to hang out with Samantha, Kristy and Mike. Again, I don't want to brag, but Samantha and Nathan are two more of the cutest babies ever. My mom had her camera, so I do have pictures of them.
And here's the proud big sister:
In this picture, Samantha saw me holding Nathan and wanted to climb up in the chair with us. But as soon as the camera came out, she wanted down! I don't understand - if she's related to me she should love cameras. ;)
Look how tiny his little body is! It was hard not to squeeze him.
On Saturday night my mom and I made chicken enchiladas and peach pie. The enchiladas are a favorite of mine, and my mom is famous for her peach pie, so I wanted to learn how to make both of these yummy things before we move. My dad appreciated my desire to learn, as he got to enjoy the final result. :) Sunday morning I helped Kristy and Mike take some newborn pictures of Nate, which was fun because his cry is so tiny and sweet. Hopefully they turn out well.
On my way home I got to stop and see my friend Krissy, who I've known as long as I can remember. She, too, deserves a post all her own. She's a doctor now, which is really impressive and I'm so proud of her! It was a really special time, and I was reminded of how lucky I am to have family I love and really good friends.
I finished off the weekend with the best part - picking Sam up from the airport! I missed my cute husband.
And now, time for bed - as you can see, having lots of fun is exhausting.
