Anderson and Cooper are 6 months apart. Elizabeth and I became friends through a mutual friend several years ago. We were both counselors at the time (she still is) and now we go to the same church and are in bible study together with our hubbies.  Anderson and Cooper are in nursery together at church and we've decided since they have the names Anderson and Cooper they MUST be friends! :)
Last weekend we celebrated Anderson's 2nd birthday Home Depot style! Anderson's daddy works for Home Depot and Anderson loves it! It was great. The kids had their own work aprons, built a toy wooden car (daddy helped), had back packs and yummy orange cupcakes!

Elizabeth and I with our boys....they were much more interested in cupcakes than taking a picture

We heart NYC!

7 neighborhood girlfriends in NYC......guarantees a fabulous time! Last weekend 7 of us went to NYC to celebrate Coco's 30th birthday! We left our neighborhood at 3:45am on Friday morning and returned Sunday night close to midnight! Thanks to our hubbies who were having fun with the lil' ones back home we were able to have fun in the city! Happy 30th to Coco! We had an amazing time together in NYC!

Our Easter was spent with family celebrating that our Lord is ALIVE! What a blessing for us all! We went to church Sunday morning and then headed to Phil's brothers house for lunch and an egg hunt! It was a beautiful day and a great time had by all! Lots of pictures to share - Enjoy!
