We have had a very busy weekend celebrating many exciting events with our friends and family. I was able to spend some time with some dear friends/sorority sisters this weekend as we celebrated Rou's baby shower for sweet Chandler. Some of us were able to meet at Benjy's on Friday for some wine then again for the shower on Saturday. I loved seeing them, and I am so happy for Rou! (and see Mandy on the far right?? She is pregnant with her second set of twins!)

MY BIG SIS! I loved seeing Amy - we can always pick up right where we left off, and I can't wait until we can get our boys together. We had to show everyone how sweet a Pi Phi angel can be :)
We would also like to say CONGRATULATIONS to Tanner and Anna. Tanner, Hans's youngest brother, married Anna on Saturday, and we are so happy to have her join the family. Anna's son, Jake, is one of Griffin's most favorite people. In fact, G ran up to Jake, put his arm around him and said, "Mommy, Jake's my buddy." Too sweet.

Wedding cake, oh how I love thee...
Griffin had a blast with his cousin Gavin this weekend. He wasn't too happy to see him leave. They are about 2 1/2 months apart - presh.
The most powerful event of the weekend was seeing my friend Ivonne and her family dedicate their new home. Anthony, her husband, was injured in Iraq in 2007, and they have been living in Tampa receiving care since then. They are now home in Houston, and we are so happy to have them close. An organization called Homes for Our Troops built the home for them. I am so in awe of Ivonne and love that Griffin and AJ can now become close friends. The ceremony was moving as you can see by the number of people who came out to show their love for the Thompson family.

Here is Jack saluting Anthony - Jack is my dear friend Nancy's little boy. Just sweetness.

I loved seeing old friends/family this weekend. What sweet blessings...
