A Wedding

So my sister Katie got married last weekend in a small ceremony in our backyard. It was absolutely beautiful. It was a hectic two days of prep, but it was gorgeous when it was all said and done. And how did we keep Hunter busy while everyone was busy doing other things? My Aunt saved the day. She gave him a can of little toads in the morning from her yard. He would not stop picking them up and playing with them all day. The poor things were probably terrorized. We did get him to leave them on the porch during the ceremony. Boys.
Since I took the pictures along with my Dad, I thought I'd share some favorites off of my camera with you. This is my favorite ceremony picture. So sweet isn't it? They were so delighted with the day.My sister was absolutely stunningly gorgeous. No surprise there. My two sisters just always are.Brad. What a stud that day.The best photo I think I snapped of Katie that day. I was so happy she chose such easy and fun flowers to work with in her wedding.I think my kids were pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. Of course by the end of the day, Hunter had a button undone on the vest, tie and hat crooked, food down his vest, and had lost the suspenders. I realized towards the end of the day that he still had a fake tattoo on his arm that I hadn't scrubbed off. Oh well. Ainsley ran around barefoot all day, but towards the end decided she needed shoes. She went and put on her rain boots. Obviously the right accessory for the dress, right? Girls.
My family cleans up pretty well don't ya think? Unfortunately, my brother wasn't able to make it so that was a bit sad. By this point in the day I was pretty swollen and sweaty from running around so much, but I figure at 38 weeks pregnant, I get a "pass". My blog will probably get quiet for a week or so. Family is coming in tomorrow (both sets of parents), because I am scheduled to have this baby girl on Tuesday the 8th at 10:30am. They are going to be here for the weekend because Ainsley's birthday is on Saturday and we want to celebrate her third birthday first. She is so stinkin' excited!

So my next post should have lots of news!


  1. I've been itching to see pictures from the wedding! My goodness, everyone and everything was so nice. I'm impressed!

    I can't get over how much you and your sister look alike. Pretty!

    We'll keep you all in our prayers and look forward to seeing pictures of your new addition soon!

  2. I'm so glad I found this one! What a beautiful wedding--and what a beautiful backyard! I love that Ainsley wore raiboots--lol!
    Jenny, you are the woman for hosting a wedding at 38 weeks! Whew! What a special memory :-)
