I remember the day I chose my wedding dress. The dress was the 2nd dress I tried on. I remember dreaming of this since I was a little girl. I was so excited to be engaged and so excited to plan Russell and my wedding day.
I wore my mother's veil. My sister, Kelly also wore it when she got married in 1994. My parents got married in 1969. My Mama wanted me to have a little something special from her dress in my dress so she sewed a small patch of her dress inside my new wedding dress. I thought that was very special.
Here we are after we said, "I Do!"

This morning, Russell and I met Amy, Tony, Ron, and Debbie at the hospital early this morning--5:30 a.m! But we were so glad to be with our family. Here is a picture of the view from the hospital room. Can you see Amy in the glare of the window??!
Here are Amy and Tony waiting this morning.
Here is a verse that was in the hallway at the hospital. Amy had a c-section this morning.
This was a cool contraption in the waiting room! This is a wall that changes colors when you touch it. Russell tried to make Leighann's monogram on it! :)
AWWW! The moment we first saw Leighann in the nursery was a happy one! Here are the new grandparents: "Grandpa and Nana".
Leighann Grace was born at 7:54 this morning.
Here is a sweet family!
Isn't this a precious picture??!
And this was when I got to hold Leighann for the first time. I absolutely LOVE babies. They are so precious. Leighann is just beautiful!

Well Amy and Tony's baby girl, Leighann will be here tomorrow! Last night we just had to celebrate. Russell and I went over to their house to visit with Amy, Tony, and Amy's mom and Dad (also Russell's Aunt Debbie and Uncle Ron!). We had a good time! I decided that I should pamper Amy and Debbie, so I gave them spa pedicures and they tried satin hands and satin lips. I wanted them to be relaxed because Leighann will be here soon!
Amy decided to make a Tapioca cake. She was so excited to make it, plus I think she had a burst of energy too! She thought it would be great to add Leighann's monogram to the cake with blueberries. Isn't it cute?
We thought it needed a little something extra. We got so excited, we may have gone overboard, but we still like this next picture:
So we call this "The Baby Cake"! It was so yummy too. We are totally ready for Baby Leighann! A C section is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Russell and I will be at the hospital with bells on! Please pray that everything is smooth for tomorrow and everything will be great.

Happy 4th of July! God Bless America! Last night we went to see fireworks with Amy and Tony. It was fun!
Just a fun fact: I once played Betsy Ross in a school play when I was younger! I even had a hat similar to the one pictured! HA!

Okay ya'll! You asked, and I share! Here is a quick and easy recipe for banana pudding.
5 or 6 bananas, sliced
1 box Nilla Wafer Cookies
2 pkgs. vanilla instant pudding mix
1 can Eagle Brand
1 8 oz. Cool Whip
Follow directions on instant pudding box. Fold in Eagle Brand. Layer cookies, bananas and pudding. Top with Cool Whip and crushed Nilla Wafers. Note: I always put Nilla Wafers around the top of the pudding to make it look even better! :)
Who wants to see this movie? I do! I hope we can go see this movie soon. I read the book by Jodi Picoult about 2 years ago and just cried and cried. I think it will be a good movie but sad too.
Well ya'll, it's JULY! WOW! This year has literally flown by so far!
