Happy Birthday Mama & Monday Recap

My mama's birthday is TODAY! We celebrated yesterday and I loved spending time with her. She is one of my favorite people and always makes things so special. We started our afternoon at Chili's for lunch...


We love our Mama! She's a hoot!

Mom always planned treasure hunts for us as girls... That was her request for her bday. So, we planned one!

She got lots of fun things and really enjoyed it :-) I loved planning it with my sissy!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA! Many more years and memories to come. Josh and I love you a LOT!!!

The rest of our weekend was a fun blur. I love having time off work and spending every minute with my fabulous hubby. We went to a wedding on Saturday afternoon. Check out my handsome man...


Laura, Tyler and Livi. She was sleepy girl!

Bre and Dana were here for Christmas and we spent a lot of time with them! SO fun!

The Bride & Groom... 1/1/11. Cool wedding date :-) The bride, Angie wore her grandmothers dress. So neat!

Lastly... Friday night was NEW YEARS EVE! We celebrated at our friends house. Party! It was fun!

Peyton... One of the party hostess! :-) Such a cute girl!

Hubby & I! :-) 

We are back to work this week. Yikes! I am not sure I remember what that is like... ha. I loved having 10 days off and it was SO needed. We praise Jesus.

Look for comments on your blogs today.... I am going to play catchup! Happy 2011. Let's praise God ahead of time for an amazing year it will be. We know he has BIG things in store!
BLESSINGS!
