Day by day...

We've had an interesting few days - here's a recap:

Thursday: Gabe and I met with Stoll's Lumber in Odon to talk about building our new house:) Nothing could be more fun...picking out hardwood floor, looking at countertops, deciding on cabinetry...loved every minute of it. After our meeting Max and I went to sign him up for tee-ball. He's super excited and I can't wait to watch him play! Of course I just had the order the parent size team shirt for $12 extra dollars...I'm such a sucker!

Friday: Long day at work, came home and made tacos...just relaxed and played with Legos most of the night. Not anything too exciting...

Saturday: We got the chance to stop by my best friend's (Tera's ) new house...which was prettier than I ever could have ever imagined! It was really an awesome thing to see her dream become reality - she has been planning this house for a long time and I'm so proud of all the hard work her and Alex have put into it! The house is the perfect place for her two sweet girls to grow up in - Congrats guys!!

Then Max had another basketball game in Washington. As we were driving there, Gabe and I were giving Max some pointers - he looked at us and said "Guys, I have a COACH and SHE tells me what to do!" I thought that was so funny - I told Gabe that I guess that is his way of telling us to back off! Ha ha!
Once the game started I was shocked - it was as if Max was a new little basketball player. He hustled, he had his hands up guarding his man, he made several great passes, he dribbled, and he even SHOT THE BALL twice!!! He didn't make either shot - but for him to even shoot was something completely new! I don't know what happened - it was as if something just clicked and he understood the game of basketball!! I'm not saying he's the next Michael Jordan, but I am super, super proud of my little boy!!

After the game - Max and I were both feeling sick and I'll spare you the details...but let's just say we are both home sick today from church with a stomach bug. The only thing I hate worse than being sick is seeing my little boy sick:(!

SUNDAY: So our Sunday will be filled with movies, laying on the couch, snuggling, and sleeping. Hopefully we are all better for school/the babysitter tomorrow.

Ok - time for more wedding talk and a vote!! Here are two flower arrangements, vote for your favorite!! My dress is ivory with a deep purple ribbon around the waist. I need your input, so thanks so much!

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear you guys aren't feeling well. :( I am having a hard time deciding on the flowers...my 1st pick would have been #2, but knowing what your dress looks like, I lean toward #1. Either way, they will be beautiful!
