It has been a merry month and let's just say it...busy! That over used word meaning: adj. engaged or at work. Synonyms include: active, assiduous, swamped, engrossed, having a full plate, tied up. It has been those words and more. Definitely merry though, each crazy event this month has brought much merriment and joy to our family.
May always begins for us with two very special birthdays and Mother's day all in the same week. May 3rd is our sweet baby girl Lorelei's birthday. She turned 8 this year. We celebrated with her very first slumber party!! Wow...that was fun and exhausting! We had 14 girls sleep over. Well, some of them slept.

This weekend was the big event to end the month of May for us...a wedding! A wedding for my dear friend Roslene, who actually encouraged me to write this blog (and a book I still haven't written!). Roslene's prayers were answered and she was blessed to find the man of her dreams...Jason. This weekend we were part of the happy event. The girls were in the wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony. We are so happy for this beautiful couple!

We had a fun night and morning crashing my sister's hotel! She was in Houston on business and let us have a "sleepover" in her room!
