A little of this and that...

So I am playing catch up on my blog today. I have a few things that I wanted to blog about last week, but just didn't seem to find the time.

Last Thursday, soccer season officially began!

This is Corban's fourth season playing in our church's league and Shane will be coaching his team again this year!

Riley is now old enough to play this season as well. He's in an instructional league where they only play on Thursday evenings. No Saturday games for him yet!

I was so impressed with the instruction Riley received on Thursday night. Being only three, I wasn't sure how well he would do, or if he would even participate at all. He tends to get real nervous when he knows anyone is watching him. Well, he totally surprised me!! He ran out on the field like a champ, and had the best time ever. Because he has watched his brother play season after season, he totally knew what to do and was so excited that it was finally his turn to play!

Saturday morning, I had the privilege of going to a shower for my dear friend, Melanie!

Melanie is due with her fourth baby about 3 weeks before me. It's been fun being pregnant together. Melanie's oldest son, Jack, is one of Corban's best buddies and I pray that these baby boys will become great friends as well!! The shower was beautifully coordinated by my sweet friend, Jessica. (Check out Jessica's blog for more details about the shower.)

Melanie loves birds, so Jessica went with a bird theme for the shower. Every detail was just perfectly orchestrated. I'm telling you, if you need a party planner and are in the Charlotte area, give Jessica a call!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

Some of the table decorations

A beautiful feathery wreath hanging on the door.

As a party favor, Jessica came up with this great idea--- a cookie bar.
Before each guest left they received a beautiful bag in which they could fill up with an assortment of cookies to take home with them! There were four cookie flavors to choose from... Brownie Bites, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Pizzells

When I got home, it only took a moment before my entire bag of cookies was gone!
