Holly's baby shower!

My family threw Holly a shower this weekend. It turned out so cute. I realized that I LOVE throwing parties! The theme was "She's about to POP!" We had, popcorn chicken, fruit pops and veggie pops (shishkabobs), sandwich pops, blow pops, ring pops, tootsie pops, and 4 kinds of popcorn; white chocolate, butter, caramel balls and kettle corn. We also played a baby lottery game, pop the balloon game and guessing the candy in the bottle game. I made tissue paper pom poms, a banner and a lollipop topiary (the picture turned out blurry). My sister Heather designed all of the labels on the food, the soda pop and the thanks you's, which were Pop rocks in a cellaphane bag to put more candy on them, (I don't have a picture) they said "thanks for popping by!" Oh yeah and I made cake pops. I also made the caramel popcorn and white chocolate, so easy!

All in all the shower turned out great with great frineds and family to share it with. I can't wait to plan my next party...Harley's birthday!

Creeps are out there... :(

So with my last post I got a creepy message that had to be erased. I have decided to go private, which I hate. I never thought I would. With Nates job at the prison it would probably be smart to go private as well. I will make it private on march 15. Please leave your emails in the comment if you would like to keep viewing our blog! Even if you just peak at our blog a little leave your email :)

Wish You Were Here

My cousin Aubrey wrote this poem while we were at our family cabin this past Labor Day. It was one of Chad's favorite places to be... I thought that it was perfect to post on the first anniversary of his spirit leaving this life.

As we sit here at your favorite place,
Our faces in the firelight glow.
We all have sorrow in our eyes,
'Cause deep down inside we know.
The loss we feel since you have gone,
Has brought us all to tears,
We all feel pain, but no one tells,
Oh how we wish you were here!
Since you've gone we've learned some things,
We wish weren't learned this way.
But sometimes life's most important things,
Are realized when taken away.
Funny how a picture's just a picture,
Until someone in it's gone.
Then it's something we all treasure,
'Cause it helps you linger on.
Funny how a song's just a song,
Until it's one that brings you near.
Then we laugh and cry until it ends,
And it's almost like you're here.
Funny how the love we feel,
Is something that we hide.
'Til someone that we love is gone,
Then it's no longer kept inside.
Funny how the petty things,
Don't matter much at all.
When what used to mean the most to you,
Suddenly seems so small.
No one should have to learn this way,
To know what real love means.
And the importance of a family-
Now in our eyes it gleams.
Although we hate to have you gone,
Your life within us burns.
As our capacity to love increases,
And life's importance's we learn.
