Red Elephants, Wedding, New Babies and Old Friends

What an eventful weekend. The kids and I left Wed to head down to LA for my brother's wedding. It was an awesome trip. My kids are great car riders and were well behaved. A rode in the front with me for the first 3 hours, but then I think he got very bored with me..... Of course he talked the whole time and subjected me to an all Toby Mac playlist....sigh.

We arrived and my parents treated us to dinner. The next day mom and I spent trying to find A's birthday present with him with us. We were unsuccessful. But we were able to get mom a nice outfit for the wedding.

Friday, Gene needed us to take M #3 shopping for wedding shoes. Of course my boys were thrilled with the idea of going girl shoe shopping. But we found the perfect pair at the first store. Mom took the boys to her house and L and I went to visit with my dear friend who was about to have a baby. Gene and his friend Josh showed up at her house so it was a nice visit. Gene had an "anniversary" present for me
Now if you know me, then you know that my favorite color is red and I LOVE elephants!! Gene's new wife is an Alabama fan so in honor of her I have named him Nick. I was so thrilled with him, you see Gene had a bear very similar to this that was green and white.

Friday, James joined us and I missed him so much. I would not do well if he had a job that required him to travel much. We went to J's mom's for dinner. She made shrimp stew and we were able to visit with his brothers and their families. Of course our kids were tuckered out by the end of the night and we had to drag A out of bed at 9am!!!

Sat was the wedding. Late Friday night I got a text that Kelly had her baby. So the boys and I headed to visit. I have a pic, but it is still in my phone and I am being lazy. I didn't take L because she had the sniffles. Got my baby fix for the next couple of years...LOL

Gene had asked me to take some pics of the wedding but we get there and I realize that I had an almost full memory card and no power cable to dump the pics. So I told him that I would take the pics of all of our "old" friends that were at the wedding. So here they are.
Roy and Karen and their girls.. They are so stinkin cute and so sweet... they get that from Karen.
Linda Dupuis Perkins and her Hubby Tim. I think the last time I talked to Linda in person was in jr high!! Way too long..
Brad Martin and his wife whose name escapes me and I feel really bad about that. I haven't seen Brad is at least 15 years... He hasn't changed a bit.
Shawn Hebert Phillips and her husband David. They are going to be grandparents in 6 months..eek

So I have no pics of the wedding, but I am hoping that G sends me a CD whenever he gets settled.

That night we went to eat boiled crawfish with my parents and G's friend Josh who was a visiting Yankee. I think we scared him while eating the crawfish..LOL My kids loved him though. I think they are expecting to see him at every family function from now on..LOL

We drove home Sunday to ground covered in snow right up until we reached our area... then NOTHING!!!LOL oh well..

That all for reading my novel.

Have an awesome day
