Hello Everyone!!

It's been 3 months since I posted on here. Geez, I really need to get better at this blogging thing!! We made it through the holidays wonderfully!! We enjoyed having Bart's parents out to Texas for Thanksgiving with us. And Christmas this branch of the family stayed home to celebrate. We attended church on Christmas Eve and then Lance and Brie picked up the Trey-Man to spend the night with us. Trey was a bit overwhelmed with the Santa thing on Christmas morning!! He is 20 months old, so it was a bit strange to get all those gifts at once. It was so much fun to have a baby in the house again on Christmas morning!!

On January 3rd Kelly began playing volleyball with a club league team on their developmental 12 year old team. After 1 practice, the head Coach emailed me and said she wanted Kelly on one of her tournament teams!! Needless to say Kelly is thrilled and our life just got much crazier!! Practice 2 nights each week and tournaments about once a month at different locations around the Houston area. She played in her first tournament on January 9th after only 2 practices and played a lot in every match that day. The 12-Blue-Coach Amy team won their first two sets of matches and had to play the other 12-Blue team from Willowbrook - sister teams!!! It was a tough played match but in the end 12-Blue-Coach Amy's team came in 2nd place to their other 12 year old team from their sports complex. They had lots of fun and enjoyed the competition. They play again next weekend January 23rd and 24th.

Brie & I attended the Houston Bridal Extravaganza on January 10th and found THE DJ for the wedding and we think the photographer too. Picked out a tux for Lance and think we have the bridemaids' dresses picked out. Brie starts a new college next week and will graduate in October of this year. She's excited that she'll actually be taking medical/nursing classes now!!

Bart is thrilled that our NEW ORLEANS SAINTS are in the playoffs this year!! GEAUX SAINTS!!! He is traaveling today to his parents' in Mobile to celebrate his Mom's 70th birthday. Happy Birthday GeeGee!!!

I've been busy working on the wedding invitations for Jayme. This is the black & white wedding that I've been working on the final design for a few months. It is a very pretty invitation that matches several elements of Jayme's wedding. The patterned paper matches her table linens for the reception and the black braiding across the front is almost an exact match to the braiding on her wedding gown. The wedding will be June 19, 2010; so I have a little time to get the invitations made. Thanks goodness!!! A photo is posted of Jayme's invitation at the beginning of this post.

My next set of wedding invitations to design will be for Brie & Lance!! She has chosen fuschia and sunshine yellow for her colors and we'll be using butterflies in some of the wedding "stuff". Much excitement around the Waltman house over the next year or so!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!! And I hope I can make time to post more often on here this year.

Prayers and grace to you all,
