One of my best friends Heather and her son Ben! Wish I had gotten pics of Ben and I in the blow up castle, we were a wet muddy mess, but it was fun!

We are so blessed that Ben attends the best medical school ever! The faculty are so amazing and supportive, and are always ready to have a good time! The Student Osteopathic Medical Association planned the first annual Osteoblast, which took place after the first round of tests. Faculty, staff, students and families all came out and had a wonderful time!

Meet Nelly!

Melanie Wilkes Goins, or, Nelly
Maggie saying, "what the heck?!" That's my translation, coming from her it just sounded like Hisssssssssssssss!!

We have a new addition! We are now the proud parents of not just one, but two little girls! This sweet little girl was rescued by our friends Megan and Ian, and we just couldn't resist her! She's 2.7 pounds of cuddly love. I'm trying to make sure Maggie still gets plenty of attention and doesn't feel neglected. She does not handle change well AT ALL. We decided to stick with the Gone With the Wind theme and named her Melanie Wilkes Goins and are calling her Nelly. For those of you who don't know, Maggie's full name is Margaret Mitchell Goins. Give me a break, I'm a Georgia girl!
