The Wedding

The wedding was beautiful and the day was perfect...other than a few minor issues- trying to find a last minute babysitter for Parker and opening the garment bag that Erica's dress was in to discover that it wasn't steamed or ironed. But when 7:00 that evening rolled around, none of that mattered. The ceremony was beautiful and short which I am a big fan of...especially in heels at 5 months pregnant! Erica was absolutely gorgeous and my handsome baby brother was in a awe! Braden did an awesome job- he was so cute walking down the aisle stopping to smile at people and then he walked up on the stage, but was quickly redirected to his seat by Brad and he sat quietly the rest of the ceremony!
The reception was so much fun! The food was great, the bride's cake was gorgeous and the groom's cake was perfect- Buck and Libby and ducks, it couldn't describe Chad and Erica any better! It was a wonderful beginning to what I pray will be a loving, fruitful, supportive and encouraging marriage! Congratulations Chad and Erica!

My brother will not be happy about me posting a picture of him in my dad's Georgia pullover!

Easter. Easter and More Easter

The pictures are NOT in order which bugs me, but blooger is not cooperating for me to fix the pictures on the bottom are actually the first pictures from Easter and the pictures at the top are the last form Easter day. Boo Blogger!
This Easter we celebrated for 2 weeks straight! It was a wonderful time to spend with family and good friends! Braden was a lot faster at gathering eggs this year and by the time the first hunt was over Parker caught on- however he was less interested in the quantity of eggs and more concerned about the quality- after he picked up each egg he would shake it and then open it and try to eat the goods!

We have a lot to be thankful for on Easter- a Savior who loves us, a Father who made the ultimate sacrifice, and an empty grave that gives us the promise of New Life!

Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me

Buried, He carried my sins far away

Rising, He justified freely forever

One day He’s coming

Oh glorious day, oh glorious day
