That's right. Jacob got a buzz. I love it.
Kallie got one too. She's my little squirrel.

Happy 24th Jacob!

We had Jake's 24th birthday party at the new house a few weekends ago. It was so fun to have everyone over to celebrate.

Jake didn't remember the last time he blew out candles so I made him do it.

Last night, we lost our beloved GG. We know that God is pleased with her life and has welcomed her to eternal life with Him. We'll miss you GG, but we know you're having lots of fun up there!

2, 4, and 8 legged friends

Michellie came to visit last weekend and we had such a good time! We tried on dresses and bought the dresses you see here, but in my color, Apple. The one I'm wearing is for Lisa.

We then went to see The Last Song, which was a tear-jerker. Let me just say, I'm glad I wasn't wearing mascara.

We had lunch at Another Time Soda Fountain in Richmond, which had awesome shakes! I can't say much for the food, but the shakes were delish.

After lunch, we went home and took a nap. Really, we did and it was great. Then we played tennis in my neighborhood, which was great too. Dinner was a Michelle and Jill culinary specialty of shrimp alfredo. It was marvelous.

Sunday we went to The Bridge and heard an awesome sermon from Kenny about prophesy and what's going on in our world now. Earthquakes, famine...sound familiar? Have you heard about any earthquakes recently? Let me think...yes. Our time here is so short so it really reminded me to make the most of it and love as big as possible!

Michellie went back to Austin after lunch and then I found this guy in my kitchen. Yep.

The Helber's came over later to pick up their dog, Sugar, who I was babysitting for the weekend. I was sad to have her leave, but she was glad to see her parents. I may be a little bit of a dog person after all...

Meet Paxton Ace

Welcome Paxton! This is the newest member of Jacob's extended family. I guess he's considered Jacob's 2nd cousin. He's really cute. Jake was holding him and Pax spit up a little and Jake said "I'm done." and handed him back to me.
Jacob is in Singapore for the remainder of April. He returns to Houston on May 6 at 5:43am, which is funny because I leave for China on May 6 at 6am. We will be in the same airport, but I'll board the plane by the time he lands. Maybe his flight will come in early and mine will be delayed. I can hope, right?

He said everyone speaks English and there are a lot of white and Indian people there. There's a Burger King across from his apartment so I think he'll be fine.

Love blooms in Richmond

Angelo did a phenomenal job on our engagement pictures! I like this one a lot.

The field to our right was covered with vibrant yellow flowers. It was such an awesome sight. Too bad there was barbed wire and chicken wire between us and the field.

Jacob just wanted to hold me and show you how strong he is ;)

I love this in the indian paintbrushes. There was just a little strip of flowers on the side of the road that made for a beautiful backdrop.

The shed in the background was ideal. I love this picture.

This is just sweet. I don't care who you are.

This is my favorite picture of Jacob, ever. His best smile caught on camera!

Here's the link to the rest of the pics. Enjoy!
