Happy Birthday Mindy!

I want to wish a Happy Birthday to my mother in law Mindy! Thanks for being a great mom to all of us Mindy, and a great Mimi to Luke! We celebrated Mindy's birthday by heading to Oktoberfest at the German restaurant in Gibson City. It was a lot of fun, and Luke really enjoyed the German music that the group there played! We headed back to the Oakley's for cake and ice cream! We hope you had a great birthday Mindy! We love you!

Melissa's Sprinkle!

Sock roses I made for a centerpiece

Last weekend my sister in law Megan, and I threw my sister Melissa a small get together called a sprinkle for her second baby arriving in less than a month now! We had it at Jamani Java where Megan used to work part time. It is a very nice coffee shop that had the perfect little room for the get together! We had a really good time celebrating the upcoming arrival of Lauryn Margaret. I took pictures of the event, that I will hopefully post soon! I will also keep those readers that know Melissa and her family updated about when the new bundle has arrived!! I am so excited!!! p.s. My sister in law Megan took way better pics that me since my camera ran out of batteries! If I can figure out how to post them I will! This was all I took before my camera went dead!

My first attempt at a diaper cake!

Happy Birthday to Rebecca Joy McAlpin!

I want to wish a very happy belated birthday (September 3rd) to my big sister Rebecca! The only family member with a birthday not within a month before or after Christmas! haha. I hope you had a very special day. This year we were actually able to celebrate Becky's birthday with her a few days early! Her and her husband Richard were on their way out to Colorado for vacation and stopped by my parents house on August 27th for dinner, cake, and presents! It was so nice to see her since I hadn't since last November! My mom took some pictures so maybe when my parents get back from Montana I will get some from her and post them! I love you Becky, you are a great sister, and friend to me!

Luke is going to have a baby sister!

We are having a baby girl! Of course Rob and Luke told me it was a girl all along, but for some reason I thought it was a boy! We are very excited to welcome a little girl to our family!! The funniest part is Luke has been telling me that the baby's name is Julia the whole pregnancy, I don't think we are going with that name, but if we did it would be funny to tell her that her big brother named her someday. He got the name from an Elmo DVD he always watches that Julia Roberts is in! haha.
