Big week!!

Hollie and the bridesmaids

We just finished a very busy and exciting week!I started the week off by picking up Monday and Tuesday (my usual days off) so I could take off Friday and Saturday for the wedding. So I worked EVERYDAY, got things ready for the wedding, had our cheerleading banquet Wednesday night, and threw in a doctors appointment!! IT WAS NUTS!!! It was worth every bit of the craziness to get to be a part of my cousins specail day. It was such a sweet ceremony. My cousin is more like a brother to me so it was neat to get to share that with him, Hollie and their baby Jackson. They live in Arkansas, so my grandma, my mom, my sister, and I all headed down there early Friday morning to get the church set up. My dad flew in from Philadelphia that evening and Mike had to work all day Friday, so Mike picked my dad up from the air port and they came down Friday night! There were relatives flying in from all over the place!! We also threw Hollie a surprise shower Friday night, as if we needed to add to her stress level=)... By Saturday evening they were married and off on their honeymoon!! Unfortunately the night before we left Arkansas I got a stomach was gross! Poor Mike did an amazing job taking care of me at 3 o'clock in the morning he went searching around the hotel for soda and crackers!! What a stud! Needless to say it was a long ride home!! Luckily we survived and are able to share some pictures from the weekend, there are just a couple I'll put some more up when I get them!

The happy couple!!

Here is just a recap of things!!

My best friend Katie and I have been BEST friends since 6th grade. I wouldn't even call her my best friend she is more like my other half! I love her like a sister her family is my family, so I was more than happy for her older sister Liz to have a little baby! My mom and I got to be there last night and hold her little Madelyn when she was only 1 hour old! It was so neat to get to experience that! She is just perfect!

Baby Madelyn was born just last night a 5:51!! Weighing a whooping 9lbs 4oz!! Way to go Liz!!

The best friends!! Me, Keri, and Madelyn

This year I was given the opportunity to coach the EHS JV cheerleading squad. It was a lot of fun! We had an amazing season we were the highest scoring JV squad at Regionals beating everyone out by 10 points!! That is huge when places are decided usually by just tenths of a point!! We never threw a better routine then the one we performed at State!! I'm just too proud of them! Our Varsity Girls started the season out by placing 3rd place at the NCA nationals in Dallas Texas. The were THE HIGHEST scoring team at Regionals. When they finished their routine they got a well deserved standing ovation!!! That does not happen often! Then to finish their season, they took FIRST PLACE at STATE (for the 2nd year in a row!!)!!! It was an amazing year!!
