The Sister is Getting Married!!!!

And now for the most exciting catchup post.  This weekend my little sister got engaged.  Stephen proposed to Deborah Saturday night and then threw a great surprise engagement party with sixty of their closest family and friends - they are both a bit social.  So we all piled into the car and road-tripped it to Oklahoma City.  Deborah was surprised by the proposal and the party.  Stephen did a great job - we're excited to welcome him to the family.

 In the hotel room - getting ready to surprise!

 Deborah when she saw mom.

 Sweet engaged couple!

 The dads - they formed their own private party on the balcony.

 Deborah and the OBU girls - love them!

Deborah and one of her best friends Kate, who flew in from Houston.

 The Welch girls!


 The Welch family with the newest member.

 Both families.

Baby Madison's Shower

My coworker Alex is having a little girl in a few weeks.  We had a shower for her last week at work.  Her husband Nick got to come and it was a lot of fun.  I can't wait to meet miss Madison!

 Part one of the gift - my first attempt at dyeing a onesie!

 And probably my favorite burp clothes I've ever made.

 The setup.  The cake and the cupcakes were my responsibility.

Sweet Nick and Alex - I think they are adorable.

Ashley's Wedding

Way back in March, my cousin Ashley got married.  Yes, I have a lot of blogging to catch up on.  The family all came to town and we had a great weekend in Arlington.  Sadly, I forgot my camera.  And I had to steal the ones I have from my sister.  And we have none of the bride.  So, this is a little bit of sad post.  But I do have fun pictures with the family.

 Silly sisters.

 Welch girls.

 At one point they were short handed, so I ended up serving ice cream.  

 The precious parents.

Grandparents...I love them.
