Ducks & Camo

Ty has taken emma duck hunting the past 2 mornings and yesterday he sent me this after they were done..

I can just hear her say "LOOK MAMA! Look what I got!!!"

I love that he can share his love for hunting with her. :)

I know I've said this before but good gosh Ty looks good in camo. Smokin' hot.

Wedding goodies!

My friends are the best around! Here are some goodies I have received since getting engaged...

I have dreamt about the day I saw my
Future name on something, anything! I always knew I wanted one of these hangers for my wedding dress and my sweet friend Molly sent me one this week!!! 

She also sent me a cup with my future name on it and our wedding date! Here is one side of the cup:

And here is the other side of the cup:
Tears came out of my eyes when I opened those two items from Molly! I still have to pinch myself to remind me I'm finally getting married! 

How awesome are these koozies? My cousin Emily got me & Ty these! They are perfect because everyone knows I'm ALWAYS right! ;)

My first time seeing my new monogram!!! Melissa had this bag made for me over 6 months ago for her wedding! She wasn't sure if we would be married or not at her wedding so she got me a bag with my regular monogram on it and then my new monogram on it just in case! when she gave this to me after we got engaged, have said "I've been waiting over 6 months to give this to you!" Ha! 

My friend Jessica also got me a picture frame that said "Christmas 2013" on it and she put a pic of me & Ty in it right after we got engaged!

I have the best friends anyone could ask for...

I got to hold Ryce for the first time last night!!! 

Hey Aunt Kat!!

Wide awake!!

So little :)

Aunt Kat heaven!

Mom also got to hold him for the first time 

He is so little but holding him felt normal because he was so wrapped up in blankets!

Please continue to pray for his kidney to function properly & for him to continue to progress so he can come home.

Sweet baby Ryce

My sister had her 5th (yes, I just said 5th!!) baby a few weeks ago and I can't believe I haven't posted about him yet! Becoming an aunt never gets old and I love it every time! Ryce was born 8 weeks early so he has spent his first few weeks in the NICU but we are praying for his strength and growth so he can come home soon! He was 4 lbs 13 oz when he was born! 

Isn't he sweet?

We found out Ryce was only born with one kidney and that one is functioning abnormally so please join me in prayer that his kidney starts functioning 100%!! 

I get to wear clothes now Aunt Kat!

Oh my goodness I could eat him up!!!

I have been sick the past 2 weeks so I haven't been able to go see him and it has been so hard!!!! I can't wait til I'm all better and can go see him & maybe even hold him. :) I can't wait to kiss those cheeks soon!

Please also be in prayer for my sister and brother in law as they have been going back and forth to the hospital and have 4 other little ones at home! 

Thank you Lord for this little blessing! 

Aunt Kat loves you baby Ryce!
