Long Lost Blogger!!

I have definitely been out of the BLOG world for well over a month! It has been one busy and fast summer. I honestly thought I was going to be bored and restless...boy was I wrong. I am loving each and every minute of it, but missing my school kids.
Here are a few photos of what's been occuring at the Hamby House!

We took a trip to Mobile, AL to visit Josh's mom, sister, and nephew Drake. We sure have missed them while they have been away working. It was nice to catch up and get to play with this silly boy! He has grown so much!

After visiting in Mobile Josh and I went on to Destin, Florida for our vacation! We went the second week of June, therefore there was NO oil! YAY! We had a great time soaking up the sun, relaxing, shopping, eating delicious food, and just spending quality time together.

Once we got home from Florida we had to anxiously prepare for my parents 50th Birthday Surprise Party that we were hosting. We had about 60 family and friends over to celebrate their birthdays! We had a great time!

Josh and I hosted the party at our little house!

FOOD, FOOD and more FOOD!

Friends and Family anxiously awaiting the arrival of the birthday boy and girl!

The adorable and delicious Sharon Fox cake!


Happy 50th Birthday Mom and Dad!

Josh and I! :)

I have spent the other part of my summer relaxing, spending time with my family, working/painting in my classroom, and shopping! It has been a great summer and I look forward to the last month of my break! This week I am helping out with Vacation Bible School and I also have a teachers meeting! I am really excited to get my first whole year of teaching rolling!!

Trip to OKC

Sorry, I have been out of the BLOG world for a good while. Here is a weekend recap from last weekend.

I went with my family to Oklahoma City to watch the Woman's Softball College World Series and to watch my sister play ball! It was so much fun. We got to see some awesome games and ate my favorite; CHEESECAKE Factory! It was delicious! I have never had anything there that I did not care for! We also hit the mall a couple times! I got some cute new things for school. An outfit for Open House and the first day! Here are some photos from my trip to OKC.

We are HUGE Tennessee fans! My sister Kate's dream is to play softball for the Lady Vol's! We were all in "awe" at the game. The first game we got to watch was UCLA and Hawaii. UCLA won that game and actually went on to win the series. It was Hawaii's first trip to the WCWS!

Dad, Kate, and I at the game. Mom took the picture for us :)

Kate and Coach Weekly. The Head Coach for the TN Lady Vol's!

Kate at her tournment. She did a fantastic job pitching! So proud of her!

My Bundle of JOY!

Last night we got to babysit my favorite girl, Miss. Addison! It is always a family affair when she comes to stay. My 22 year old brother even stays home when she comes to visit! (holy cow!) My Mama made a delicious supper and we all ate together. I got to help feed Addison. She had chicken, hominy, new potatoes, and pinto beans! She also had a banana for dessert! We played outside with my parents dog, went on a 4-wheeler ride, jumped on my parents bed, sang songs, watched tv, and even took a cat nap!

Here are a few photos we snapped of her out in the yard!!

Such a doll!!

She was pointing at Lilly the dog and saying d-o-g!

She LOVES Josh! She cried for him while I was changing her diaper! :)

It is so hard to believe that Josh and I celebrated our very first anniversary this past Sunday; May 30th. This has been the fastest and most happiest year for the both of us! Full of lots of memories as well as trumps and triumphs! It has been a very special year and we cannot wait to celebrate at least 70 more! Here are a few highlights from our first year of marriage!

May 30th, 2009: The happiest day of our entire lives! We could not have asked for things to be went and been more perfect! We thank our families and friends for making this day so perfect!

We began June by celebrating our marriage in Negril, Jamaica! It was our HONEYMOON!

Also in June we celebrated many many many weddings! I recall attending three in the month of June!

We spent our First Anniversary rooting on Kate at her State Track Meet. She did a great job and won 3rd in her race! We had dinner with a group of track parents and we even shared our Sharon Fox Anniversary cake. How generous are we? ha! After her race in Jefferson City we went to Springfield and attended our first Springfield Cardinal game. It was so much fun and something we will definitely do again soon! Our First Anniversary was great and I cannot wait to spend many many more with Josh!
