Flashback Friday

Tonight as I was getting my camera out to delete some pictures I found an old jump drive.  I knew immediately what would be on it - beach pictures from almost 2 years ago.  Kelli, do you even remember that I still have your jump drive?  I knew I had it, but I had no clue where it was!  I found it tonight :)

So, in honor of finding the long time missing jump drive here are few pictures.

 Here is baby Avi standing on the fold out couch bed with me.  Notice her feet/legs are hidden by Uncle Joel's socks.  For some reason she was enthralled with them and wanted to put them on!

 Mine and Joel's feet along with our name at the beach.  This was a couple of month's after our 2 year anniversary.  In 13 days we will celebrate our 4th anniversary.  Time flies when you're having fun :)

 Another shot of Avi - look how tan she was!  Go here - The Anthony Girls - to see up to date pictures of Avi and her sister Sally Sharp.

 John Michael and Madison - they have gotten so big since then.  JM went to prom this year (all handsome in his tux).

Here is a flashback picture of Joel and me.  We have been working for the last year to lose some weight, and you can tell in this picture (versus those in the birthday post below) that we have made some progress.

I hope y'all are having a good weekend so far.  We are enjoying being home and relaxing!  Enjoy these flashback pictures.

Joel's 30th Birthday

In March, I pulled off a surprise 30th birthday party for Joel.  It was so hard to keep all of the little detail plans that were going on behind the scenes from Joel during the month that I was planning it.

We had great friends and family that were gracious enough to help celebrate this milestone.  Joel was completely surprised - no clue anything was being planned.

Here are some pictures from the fun night.

 Joel's first view of the party attenders - while they were yelling surprise.

 Sanders saying something like: We got you :)

 Joel's 30" party pizza for his 30th birthday.  This came from a local pizza place (our favorite).  Since Joel saw one when we first moved here he has wanted to get one.  It's not everyday that a 30" pizza is doable, so I thought this would be the perfect occasion!

 Here you can get a good idea of just how large the pizza actually is.

 Uncle Joel and Harris - Harris' first trip to GA.

 Blowing out his candles!

 The Oakley clan that was in attendance.  We are very blessed with a great family.  I was thrilled to find out that his family would be able to make the long drive to make this night even more special.

A look at the party attenders waiting to say surprise.

New Seasons

So, obviously a lot has happened since my last post.  I completely got off track with my blogging - sorry! 

Here are some pictures to show the new season we are in.

Today was  a beautiful day, and I took a walk down to the lake to enjoy some of the nice weather.  I will update more soon on what's been going on in my absence!
