A Busy Weekend

Gabe and I had a great, yet very busy weekend! Friday I met some girls for dinner at the Melting Pot...Valerie, who I don't see as often as I would like since she is finishing school in Lubbock, Kim and Courtney. We had a great time catching up.  They are all so sweet and fun to be around!  Val brought Brody an adorable baby Red Raider onesie.  It is just precious!!!! Looking forward to seeing Kim and Courtney next weekend!  

Saturday was my grandpa's 90th birthday! We had lunch at the Waterford, the retirement home he lives in.  He was surprised by one of my aunts flying in from Arizona. We all kept the secret from him...I can't believe so many people were able to keep it quiet.  Another one of my aunts flew in from Virginia, 
but he already knew she was coming. After lunch, we all went our separate ways for a few hours, I went to work. Gabe went to the movies with his mom and we all re-grouped for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  We then went back to the Waterford to have yummy cake (from the Red Oven...YUMM) and champagne for those who were allowed!  Here is a picture from the end of the evening of my grandpa, we call him Pepere 
(sounds like: pep-pay). What an adorable 90 year old!  :) Love him to pieces and we (me and Gabe) are happy to be having his first great-grandchild in March!

Sunday I spent all of my time working!  ALL DAY!  I am looking forward to this busy week. Back to the doctor on Tuesday.  Mom is hosting a neighborhood girl's night Wednesday, which should be fun. We are calling it the "Souper Bowl" and serving 3 different soups and other finger foods. All the guests were asked to bring cans of soup so we can donate to a local food bank.  And I would like to see my 2 "out of towner" aunts one more time before the go home.  I am hoping this week goes by fast!
