This was quite a whirlwind of a weekend! On Fri the Yoemen beat the Taylor ducks 47-21! I had organized a coaching family get together at the field house for after the game. We had a great turn out, including my best friends Mandy & Lauren and her hubby, Josh.
On Sat morning we attended our annual Bell family reunion. Somewhere along the way I was designated the organizer for that. I guess someone knew how much I enjoy shopping, decorating & party planning and knew it would be a good fit :) We had a rather disappointing turn out compared to other years. Music is always expected but unfortunately some of the older leaders of that were unable to attend due to health and travel concerns. My maternal grandmother, "Memaw" always comes from west Texas for the reunion and enjoys getting to visit with her siblings. This year only two sisters were in attendance but it's so neat to watch them reunite! A cousin from out of state was sweet enough to send three different vases with a dozen roses eachn for Memaw and her sisters. They were super elated :) I gave prizes for the oldest & youngest family members in attendance. The oldest was mid 80's and received a Fall garden mum while the youngest was 18 months and received some fun Halloween books!
On Sat afternoon my friends Lauren & Mandy hosted a baby shower for me at my parents' house in Temple. They did a FABULOUS job with the invitations, decorations, food, games and more!! I have included some photos but didn't capture many due to battery issues :( Owen is a lucky little boy to have so many amazing friends and family members! On Sat evening a bunch of us went to BJ's for dinner and so that the guys could watch the Aggie game...(luckily the Baylor game was also on and had a more favorable final score!)
Today is a lazy Sunday. I am so happy to have Jarrod home ALL day. This is our "off week" in football terms. Jarrod cooked a nice big breakfast before finishing the fence, we washed most of the windows, I am putting away gifts and making final touches to the nursery and odd jobs have gotten done around the house.
