Baby Shower for Aimee

Aimee and JP are expecting their first child any day now. But first we had to celebrate with a baby shower. Our husbands went out for dinner and beer while the ladies did what ladies do at baby showers. Low key and relaxing. We can't wait for Celeste to be born...awaiting her arrival! (JP even got involved in the games: putting on a cloth diaper with eyes closed)--what a dad he will be!

Oh no... not the willow tree!!

An ICE STORM hit St. Louis! Here is the damange to our willow tree in our back yard...we are very sad because it provides us privacy while on our deck. We went with out power for about 12 hours which allowed us to go out to eat and shopping (Which was fun!)... we were fortunate to get our power back, because many didn't.

Church Mardi Gras Party

In celebration of the money that was raised in the church Capital Champaing, St. John is building a Generation to Generation building (for the kids!!). Ryan and I were on the planning committee for the Mardi Gras Party. Ryan was a greeter and I led the face painters. Cajun food...shrimp...we went all out. Fantastic time.

Happy New Year!

Ryan and I went out for dinner and then spent the night with our friends from seminary. Had a little sparkling "grape juice" as they enjoyed some cheap champagne! So here are a couple pictures of the future pastors wives trying to be sexy! Ryan and I actually rang in the new year this year...there is no one I would rather be with!
