~Showered Galore~

I have the best family, friends & Co-workers EVER! I was given so many showers and I'm sooooo thankful for everyone that helped, came, or brought something over to me! My support system is the best by far, and I honestly think I am spoiled for sure! my niece said the cutest thing one day she was talking to her mom and said "how many showers is she going to have?" it was so cute! i feel OVER privelaged to have been able to have this many. besides helping me get prepared for the new babe, i am so thankful i was able to sit and chat and hang out with people i haven't seen for a while! that would be the overall best part, {and knowing by having a shower the date is going to come soon when i get to meet this little guy that's been kicking me}

I got the cutest stuff at the showers! brady's friends' wives know brady all too well because most of them got the little guy CARHARTT stuff! He is now ready to go camping, fishing and be one of the guys! Like father like son i suppose! :) I have loved EVERYTHING i have gotten and dont think i could have asked for more! everything i got will be put to good use and be very beneficial!

 some of my very best friends!!
Some of my best high school friends! so glad they came!!

YAY!!!!


Remembering my Grandpa Riggs on his b-day

This past weekend was my Grandpa's Birthday. He passed away last April, but that doesnt mean i dont think of him daily. To celebrate his b-day Brady, my mom, jaycie, dylan, steven and I got balloons and went and picked my grandma up at her house. We all went to the Grave-site together and I had told them that we should all wrote a message to Grandpa on a balloon and at the same time. Then we released them and let them travel up to 'heaven' it was a great day! warm and sunny. 
 This is my balloon!

 Then This Valentines Day my grandma wanted to do it again. (she must have liked my idea) My uncle Richard and Aunt Deanna Came with us this time.
 Brady writing on his balloon (he told grandpa to teach our little guy things that we might forget. almost made me cry
 This is my grandma's balloon.. 
These are the Valentines day Balloons we let go. We got to see them travel farther, because they were shiny.

This little thing we have started I assume will turn into a tradition and i am so thankful for that. I feel like we should be able to talk to him whenever, and this is a fun way. It was nice and i believe that my grandpa knows how much we love him and miss him every day
