Where Did April Go?!

Hello Again!! It's been a month since my last post and things have been busy at the Hamilton house. We've been enjoyig the Spring and trying to keep up with all the chores associated with this time of year. After a very wet winter, our yard has been growing like crazy. We have clay soil and I suspect that it is holding quite a bit of water that our grass/hay has been loving during all this warm weather. On the 10th our cousin, Nici, married her high school sweetheart. So we enjoyed those wedding festivities and even did some decorating for the reception.

Last weekend (the 17th) was my birthday and we spent the day working. But not your regular working. We went to Nashville to see a radio tower be demolished. So we got to see something really cool and earned 10 hours of extra vacation time. I had a fantastic birthday overall. Brian got me 3 crystal glasses to match the rest of the stemware we got as wedding gifts. He was so sweet and ran to Belk on his lunch break Friday to be sure he had something to give me when he picked me up. And today I got to order my real present... a new laptop!!!

I'm so excited I can't stand myself. I've had my current laptop for 4 years, but it was a piece of junk warrenty replacement for the one I bought when I started college. Brian is excited because he is inheriting the piece of junk and hopes that with some cleaning out and defragging he can keep it going a while longer.

This weekend, we are going to be at home all weekend and are really looking forward to getting some more things done around the house and doing some serious sleeping in for a change.

We're also hoping that we get a few more parts we ordered in today's mail so we can do a few more things on our big truck project. With a little luck we hope to be up and running again soon. Wish us luck! Happy weekend everybody.

Here are a few pictures of the decorations I did for Nici and Clint's wedding. The galvanized flower buckets are my absolute favorite!!! We did the arrangements and then hung them with ribbon on shepard hooks along the walkway in. It was to die for cute!!!
