Buzz Lightyear, Mizzou Tigers, & a Twisty Baby

This weekend, like most others, was full of fun celebrations and time with friends & family. Friday started off wonderful as Hubby & I both took off work a few hours early to go and pick up the most recent addition to our backyard, another new tree...but more on that in a bit.

We got home just in time to clean up and head to a combined birthday party for Hubby's nephews, Hunter & Jackson. They both celebrate birthdays in October and with Hubby's parents living out of state it works best to just have a combined party. We had a great evening full of lots of quality time with Buzz Lightyear, Legos, & Brobi from Yo Gabba Gabba. (I tried out the collage feature in Picasa and I'm in love! It's perfect & I don't have to upload all the photos individually---you like?)

Some photos from the evening...we got Hunter some new Legos (Buzz Lightyear of course) and Jackson his first Radio Flyer scooter.

Saturday was work for me in the morning as I volunteered to work so my dad could go play golf with Hubby, his dad, & my grandpa. I think they had a great time & the weather was gorgeous! I made a trip to the grocery store with coupons in hand...I had some things that I HAD to buy and didn't have coupons but it was still a good outing!
After some time for relaxing I headed out to a baby shower for my friend Tacy. We went to high school together and she's actually 1 of 4 of my girlfriends who's expecting! She's due on Halloween and is seriously adorable! She's having a little boy & graduated from Mizzou so the shower was a tailgate party! Such a cute theme & the hostesses did a great job with everything!

She got some adorable stuff for precious Reed who will be here very soon! The picture on the top left is a group shot of the hometown friends. I'm on the far left, Jacinda is next and is due in March, Cheryl is next and due in April, Tacy--the guest of honor--, and Charity who already has 2 precious boys! Seriously, no pressure for us!

After the shower I headed back for a quick dinner with Hubby's family, followed up by more Lego construction at our house. This time Buzz's starship was on the assembly line...I even got to help to speed up the process a bit!

Today after church we planted our new tree...a Twisty Baby Locust tree. It's a decorative tree that grows in an irregular way, with twists & turns coming from all directions. It was unseasonably warm today so it was quite the job but Hubby & I worked quickly and had it in the ground and all set in no time! Bogey certainly loved the attention in the backyard & even learned to retrieve his ball from the big hole!


We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing before heading to another great night at small group. After small group I had my first solo trip to Walgreens with my coupons. It was an incredibly successful week! I'll be back with some details later this week...it was a good enough trip to deserve it's own post!
