{eve's first bath!}

Oh's happened---I will apologize right now for the blatantly sappy and overly obnoxious "my grandchild is the most wonderful grandchild in the world" post. YEP---it's below---SOOOOOO, if you don't want to read this---move won't hurt my feelings----well, it probably would, but I won't really know!

Joshua and I went over to Caitlin's today after he got out of school. We just hung out and had dinner. While I was changing Eve's diaper we saw her WHOLE belly button....YEA!!!! The umbilical cord had finally fallen off and she could have a real bath! I was SOOOOO excited that I got to be there for this sweet moment---yes, I know that there will be HUNDREDS more of these, but there's something sweet about the first bath---mostly, I just love a just washed baby in a towel, don't you? Here are a few pictures from our night! (ok, a lot of pictures!)

Just before her bath---don't they look GREAT ;D 

She never cried! I think all three of mine cried like crazy in the tub for the first time---but not Eve---I'm POSITIVE it's superior parenting--I wish I could have been this comfortable with my babies! 

Almost done!

BEAUTIFUL---love that boy!

SO, if you're still here, you are either a grandparent or you are quite indulgent...thanks either way! My mom's birthday is coming up and we are celebrating this weekend--hopefully I can post some pictures of that sweet event!

{I love a wedding!}

As I read back through the last post I made, I think my words were: come back tomorrow and I'll have more" (pictures- I meant!) um, well, two weeks later, is what I meant! ;D Sorry!

Lindsey and Brett got married last night and it was such a fun time! Here are a few pictures from the wedding....I'll explain as I go!

We sat in the balcony with Caitlin---we didn't know that the wedding party would be coming upstairs at the end of the wedding to wait! WHAT FUN! 
Mrs. Bretton Danforth with Caitlin!!  ummm, yeah, I cut off my grandbaby in the picture--I'll work on my photography skills---

Caitlin and Carson and Eve---the little family! Brett is in the doorway in the back---parents and grandparents were still coming up the aisle!

Off to the reception and cakes by Christie Haas---OH MY GOODNESS! She's amazing! She made Caitlin's cakes--you can see them here. Anyway, this one was peanut butter with chocolate icing---hmmmmm!

This isn't a great picture of the bride's cake, but it was beautiful---and as always, it tasted delicious. If you need a cake for any occasion, let me know and I'll put you in touch with Christie---she's easy going, affordable and makes a beautiful, tasty cake---OK, commercial finished!

Brett and Lindsey's first dance!
Caitlin was supposed to be in this wedding, but when she found out that she was pregnant, she decided it would be best not to be---great idea! So, she got to attend and be a part of the festivities. Here are some pictures of Eve. She had on a sweet tutu---love those this year. 
Eve with me---bliss!

Eve with Randy--Carson's daddy

The beautiful bride with Eve~

Joshua was looking forward to the reception last night so he could burn up the dance floor again. He made his debut at Caitlin's wedding and since many of these people had been there, they just encouraged him to go, uh, he did.....

...some fancy moves....

...look at the momentum on his tie!!!

Oh, and Joshua caught the garter......I told him it was a headband....yeah, he'll hate me in a few years when he figures it out---but last night it was hysterical!

And finally, Lindsey and Brett left to Sparklers---LOVE that--I don't know what is funnier....the fear on Liz and Taylor's faces or the sparkler in Carson's mouth behind them!

Thanks so much for the visit---as I've said before---it's just a little pitiful how much I enjoy your visit! ;D 
Oh and can I just say---way to go, Duke! ACC Champs----AGAIN!
