Ashlegh's Getting Married!

My friend since middle school, Ashlegh Edwards, is getting married this October. She was the friend who always said she wasn't getting married until she was 30. Well she will be a few years short of 30 but did manage to wait 6 years longer than me, which was no surprise to anyone. We were roommates in college and I was there when her fiance, Chase, picked her up for their first date. So happy for you guys!
Morgan and I are helping host a shower for her October 3rd in Raleigh. Here is a picture of the Fall themed invitation I made!

The Bunch Wedding

Jonathan and I drove to Kitty Hawk this past Saturday for Danielle and Aaron's wedding. It was on a pier and it was the perfect day. We met these guys in our life group at church. The group has been such a blessing to us and we have met some amazing people. To be there on their big day was very special. Alley and Alan made it out too, and it was great to spend time with them. Missed all the other couples!

You may kiss the bride.
Looking good!

EG is 9 months old!

This month Elliott is standing up by herself. She will be holding a toy with both hands and not notice she is standing alone. This morning I turned around and she had gone up 3 stairs. Guess I better be more careful! I have two babies that aren't okay with stairs on their own yet. She also likes to stand up in the high chair every time, so we have to strap her in. Never had to do that with Weston at this age, but he was very serious about eating. :) She is smacking her lips and imitating our sounds, like bye bye and dada.
It's getting nearly impossible to take the monthly pictures but I will press on.

Something was funnnny

Batts Beach Week

It was so hard to come back home from beach week this year. I had gotten used to having all the family around to love on and laugh with constantly for 6 days. It took me a few days to get rid of the blues.
We had such an amazing time. Best week to date if you ask me. All of us cousins just don't get to spend time together like that during the year. We all decided to take a night to make dinner and it worked out really well.
This was Elliott's first week at the beach and she did great, enjoying both the beach and pool. I just appreciate everyone putting up with the little ones. If you aren't around kids much, the whining can get to you. Also, if you are around kids much, the whining can get to you.
One night the whole gang went to Net House and walked around Beaufort a little. Thanks to my aunt Debra for forcing Mema to take a stroll with us we got a great group shot. :) I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!
