Justin's Promotion

Justin is now Senior Manager of Field Operations for the Great Plains Division of TMobile and we are so proud of him. He now reports directly to a Vice President/ General Manager of the company and has an "office" job. This means the end of travel for Justin (except for a few trips here and there). He has some big responsibilities but he is really excited.

Justin has been working so hard and this position is something that he really wanted. We are so excited for him. Still some big changes to come with his company but for now we are very excited about his promotion. We are also happy that a very stressful March has come to an end. We have been very lucky that everything turned out so well for our family and we made it through one of the hardest months yet.

Boys Weekend

While I was out of town this weekend Jackson and Justin had a great time! They started the weekend with Fish Fry at our church where Jackson ate 4 pieces of pizza and Justin commented they should consider not letting "kids eat free." On Saturday they went to the gym, enjoyed a puppet show production of "Jack and the Bean Stock", went to church and then rode bikes to dinner (almost getting stuck in the rain). On Sunday they went to the gym (again) and then Justin took Jackson on a 3 plus mile bike ride. They both had so much fun. I missed them so much but I am so happy for their bonding time. They say they missed me but......
Also Jackson has a bad cough so they didn't get much sleep but did enjoy cuddles on the couch while catching some basketball games!

I am pretty sure he grew up a ton in the 48 hours I was gone.

Emily's Shower and Bachelorette Party

This weekend we celebrated Emily's soon to be big day with a bridal shower and a bachelorette party. It was a fun weekend in St. Louis.
The invitation set the mood for the event
The bridesmaids wore black and pearls

We planned a Breakfast at Tiffany's Themed event for Emily.
The fabulous food

We served breakfast food at the shower to include Homemade Egg, Cheese and Bacon Biscuits, French Toast Sticks with Pomegranate dipping sauce, Homemade Frosted Cinnamon Rolls, Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Sausages and of course yummy cupcakes. We also created a fabulous champagne infusion bar with a variety of wonderful fruit juices. Everything was touched with Tiffany blue and sparkly diamonds. It for sure will be an event to remember!

Cupcakes with "Top 10 Things Ben Loves about Emily"

We ended the evening with a Bachelorette party at the Laminar Place in Downtown St. Louis- of course we actually ended the night with very sore feet after dancing for hours on heels that were just way to high!

Emily has a great group of friends and family that helped us celebrate in style.

Reading with Dad

Jackson really enjoys snuggling on the couch before nap time. He especially likes to read to us. Justin would love it if Jackson just fell asleep and took a nap with him.

Marble Crazy

We had a family adventure day today which are always so much fun. We went to Moon Marble Company for their Marble Crazy event and watched a fancy marble get made. Then we headed out to Fritz's for a fun lunch.
