The beginning of baby time!

Joel and I got some practice time holding, burping and just loving on sweet little Cate!

They even dressed her up special to meet us!

She looked like she just melted into daddy's sholder.

Cate and daddy!

Sleeping babies are the best!

Sunday night Joel and I drove to NVA to visit with Micah, Sara and new baby Cate (Catherine Francis Corder). She is so beautiful and tiny. Sara and Micah look great and they are a beautiful family!

July 4th!

Dorothy came and spent the week with us and helped us celebrate the 4th! Good times hanging out in good ol' Kensington. The fireworks were surprisingly awesome and within walking distances of the house. A few couples from church and our neighbor hung out for a bit and watched the fireworks with us. Fun times!

this is our attempt at Zoolander faces! I look like i am blowing kisses or something! Silly me.

After church we hit up the thrift store and found cheesy shirts to wear. what you cant see in the picture is the mickey mouse on joels shirt and the matching eagles on Dorothy and my shirts. Dorothy is also sporting a star spangled head band! Dont be jealous ya'll!

It was so fun and I truely felt showered with love and lots of gifts. Thank you Sara for everything. My hubby has assisted with the pregnany by gaining sympathy weight, but I have official (by a lot) out grown him.

My neice Charlotte...taking a peek at the boys playing horseshoes.

The fence crew

Friends and family came from all over to help us over the Memorial Day weekend build a fence and break in our new deck! we decided to have a professional do the deck and then Joel and his "team" built an awesome fence. I have to admit that I didnt think they could build it and build iit so straight. when I returned home after spending a night with my sister-in-law and neice I was pleasantly surprised.
