My Weekend in Pictures

We spent the weekend in Victoria
Our first stop was the twins birthday party. My niece Shelby and my nephew Conner turned two and had a wonderful party. Here is my nephew Matt "the actor" and my handsome Seth hanging out on couch watching a football game Saturday afternoon. I'm not sure who was playing, but I do know the Aggies won even though we didn't get to watch the game. These boys look like they could be brothers.
Here's a picture of my Daddy and his wife Carolyn(Mamaw to the kids).

My sis was in from LA. She and her husband Tony have been married for over 20 years, but they both look so young. Debbie has been doing lots of extra jobs lately in LA and just had some headshots done. She loves to act!
Elmo was a special surprise guest at the party. Here is a pic of my niece Stephanie, Elmo(Matt), Annie and Ashley. I love this-so cute!

Finally, a picture of the birthday boy and the birthday boy and girl. Their mom (Laura) and their dad(my bro Billy) did an excellent job hosting the party. They are awesome parents!

Now, for the best part of my weekend-watching my last baby get baptized. Here is Skip and Annie posing for me before she went under. It was wonderful that so many people were their to cheer her on. My dad and his wife, my mom, my sis and her family, Skip's mom, and our friend's Jim and Karissa from Corpus.

There she goes...

She did it!
BTW, I can't forget another wonderful blessing. We had probably 500 new visitors at church for our big new CSI series. It was an amazing service. We only have 2 services on Sunday and we had over 1650 people. God is working in amazing ways at Parkway Church. I can't wait to see how next week goes. Praise God!

Being baptized by her Daddy. How special is that.

The birthday party looked fun. I'm past those kinds of parties with my kids now. Sometimes I miss them.

I love these photo posts, Susie. Can't get over how much you and your sister look alike. And what fun - an Elmo bd party! Your nephew is very handsome AND a good sport to put that costume on. LOL

Congratulations to Annie. Wonderful weekend and wonderful photos.
