We got some upsetting news this week. My grandmother (my dads mom) was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. We know that it is aggressive because a few months ago her chest x-ray was clear, and the one this week showed significant disease progression. Because she is 81 years old, the chemo and radiation would do her more harm than good, so the decision was made not to treat the disease, but to treat the pain.

After my dad told her the news and talked to her about the plan, her response was, "Edwin, you have given me a wonderful gift. You have told me that I will get to go and be with Papa." She is so strong in her faith and said that if this is what the Lord has planned for her, than she is ok and is at peace! Please keep her and my family in your prayers.

These pictures were taken at our wedding in March! The lead singer of the band got her up on stage and she danced with us! Such a wonderful memory!!!

Erin's getting married!!!

Yesterday was Erin's bridal shower in Montgomery. I am so glad that I was able to be there for her first shower, and it was great to see some of my best friends!

Wesley's sister, Jennifer, and several of our closest friends are getting married in the next few months! I am so excited because it gives us an excuse to see so many friends that we don't get to see very often now that we are living in PC.

Speaking of weddings, Wesley and I have been married SIX MONTHS today! Time really does fly when you are having fun, and I am so thankful to be married to my favorite person in the entire world!

Labor Day Weekend

We have had a great Labor Day weekend. I was pretty wiped out after working nights last week, and it was so nice to spend a weekend at home...especially since Wesley had a long weekend off. We both would have LOVED to have been in Jordan Hare Stadium on Saturday, but it was nice to rest up and spend time in PC.

One of my best friends from high school, Mary Neal, and her family were in town staying at their beach house. Wesley and I went to their house on Friday night and visited, and then we all ended up at Beef-O-Brady's in Lynn Haven to watch the football games on Saturday.

Amy and my mom came to town on Sunday. They were here when Wesley and I got out of church and we all went to lunch at Uncle Ernie's on St. Andrew's Bay. We left Wesley at home to study while we went to Seaside to shop for the day.

I was planning on having to work on Monday night, but woke up on Monday with voice-mail that said that census in the NICU was low and that they were not going to need me. Wesley and I went to the gym and then spent the afternoon on the beach!

It was a pretty perfect weekend! I got to spend time with my husband, my family, and friends! Couldn't ask for much more!
