What a weekend!

On Friday, we took Brett to visit Marilyn and he really "showed out." Marilyn worked with Drew at 40/29. She was recently diagnosed with lung and liver cancer. We were all very shocked and saddened by the news.. but she seems to be in good spirits. Doctors have not given her much time, but she is living life as she always has: with a great sense of humor! She and Brett "talked" quite a bit and she was really glad to see him getting so big!

Brett stayed the night with Nana Friday night while Drew and I went to "Paint the Town Red" in Fayetteville. Drew emceed the event along with Jon and Deke from 93.3 The Eagle. What a fun group of people! The food was great, the drinks were free and the music was totally 80's...
Tonight, we had "Baby Night" with Jeff, Roxy and Xander at Jeff's parents' house. Steaks on the grill, good friends and hilarious conversations. Papa Mike and Grandma Jan were all about loving on the boys (Xander and Brett that is).. We had to get a picture of our growing babies!

And this picture I took of Xander looks staged but was purely by chance... he leaned forward as I snapped the pic. The lamp shade looks like a little Shriner Hat!!

Good times! We love our friends so much and enjoy sharing our parenting experiences with them.
