Great Weekend!

What a great weekend!

Friday night I cooked fried chicken nuggets, corn bread, and veggies for some of "the boys" -Jason, John, and Nick. Unfortunately the LJM was unable to be with us because she had prior commitments in Birmingham. Later that evening the Lucas' joined us for what we all do best, porch time! Isn't that what summer nights are for? What I love the most about my friends is that we can all sit around outside and talk about everything under the sun till the wee hours of the night. At 11:00p.m. the nurses called and said they were out of breastmilk so Jac and I got to go for a late visit and feed the babies - always a treat. It was fun to goof off with the nurses too. So when we got back to our house we still weren't done conversating which means...

Saturday, Nick and I slept in pretty late... so late I won't even tell you what time. But we couldn't sleep ALL day because we had a wedding to go to in Birmingham. My senior year at Alabama my roomate Leslie and I shared a teeny tiny room together and became really good friends- close for quirky little reasons like similar favorite/significant songs, a love for animals, both of us known for being a little too forward sometimes, and a spiritual connection as well. Anyway, her wedding was at 5p.m. on Saturday evening. Nick and I left Montgomery at 3:30. In Alabaster we crept down traffic jammed I-65 going 20 MPH for 1 hour. We finally pulled up to the church at 5:45pm just in time to see the bride and groom come out of the church doors to have their pictures taken. So sad!!! We were too late. We did follow everyone else to the reception and had a wonderful time. Here are some photos of me with my handsome husband, me and the bride, and me with some of my sorority sisters!





After the wedding we came to Montgomery and went out to Sinclair's and Bud's with the Lucas', always a good time.

Sunday morning we woke up and went to "The Court" to have breakfast prepared by Luke - crisp bacon, fried eggs, and pancakes with maple syrup, yum. After breakfast we went to the hospital to visit Harper and Lily. Here is a quick update:

The babies are back to feeding every three hours using a bottle. They both weigh a little over 4 pounds and are maintaining temperatures fantastically. We hope that they will be home this week! Today Nick and I visited them from 2p.m. till 6p.m. and had a really great time. The nurse took their feeding tubes out and cleaned the tape off of their faces so we took full advantage of being able to take beautiful photographs tape free...you thought they were beautiful before? Just look now...

GORGEOUS!

So tonight Nick and I are relaxing at home before the new work week begins! It was a great weekend!

Unbelievably beautiful! They do look identical! You know the Olsen twins (Mary-Kate and Ashley) are fraternal so you never know! Congrats on their progress!
