A Shower for Nolan, a Marathon for Jeremy

The girls that I grew up with in the Laurel youth group threw me a beautiful shower on Satuday, March 28th in Knoxville. Women from this church that I have known most all my life were able to come and make the occasion so special. God, in His goodness, has provided our family with some lifelong friends through Laurel Church of Christ. Many of them were around to welcome me into the world 27 years ago, and now these same family friends are helping us celebrate the birth of baby Nolan.

Here are some of the dearest friends a girl could ever have! I love you girls and treasure the lifetime of memories that I have with each of you. I'm so thankful we have each other and that we've remained close all these years! I will look forward to our next visit together!
My talented mother smocked and sewed a precious little onesie for Nolan. The brown puppies are adorable, as we are certainly partial to puppies at our house. Nolan will be stylin' in his new outfit!

On Sunday, Jeremy ran his best time ever in the Knoxville Marathon (3:48)! We were on a time crunch to get back to Montgomery for the Landmark shower, so his marathon finish was a double victory!!! My dad also ran in the race - his 5th marathon to date. Praise God for an injury-free race for both of them! My mom, sister, and I enjoyed following the two of them around Knoxville and cheering for our runners.  The finish in Neyland Stadium was pretty awesome!

Before the race, Jeremy and I splurged and bought a new video camera.  Unfortunately, the cameraman (myself) was not too good, so the footage is a little shaky.  Caution: may cause motion sickness.
