Coming up for Air

Well I finally feel like I am coming up for air my friends.
The wedding is behind me and we are now preparing for a graduation. 
All the hard work and time paid off and in the end it was a beautiful weekend!
The weather was great, the food and cake were delicious, we visited with old friends and family and celebrated LOVE!! It doesn't get much better than that. 

The bride and groom were stunning

This picture gets me everytime! They weren't allowed to see each other but only touch. The love between them brought tears to their eyes and mine.

The first time he saw her...

So beautiful!!

This is one of those moments you want to stop in time..My girl had them play "Mamas song" by Carrie Underwood and requested a dance with me. We cried and soaked up our time together. I love her so much and could not be happier or prouder of them both!

The guys!

The girls!

Lacing up the dress..

The parents praying a blessing on them and vowing our prayers and support for their marriage. 
We did this in lieu of candle lighting or sand. Each of us wrote them a letter encouraging them in their marriage and put it in a box with a letter they wrote to one another.

It was a day we will never forget!
We love them so much and feel extremely blessed to have another son in the family!

Our photographer was outstanding and we have over 1900 pictures to go through on the FIRST Cd. will I ever decide??

Thanks for stopping in my friends and now I will prepare myself for a graduation on Friday night.
This momma is proud but tired!

Blessings to you all!

Popping In

I just wanted to stop in and say "HI" to all my sweet readers.
I can see a light at the end of this wedding tunnel and we are looking forward to this day with much anticipation!!

In the middle of all this fun we had a senior prom and a bachelorette party...woohoo!!

He took a college girl this year (a good friend) and we had to give him a hard time about it! Did I mention he is counting the days to graduation?!!
They had a wonderful night and I needed a nap the next day after waiting up for him!

Bachelorette party was the next thing on the agenda.
She kept it small with her bridesmaids and their mommas. We spent the night downtown at a very nice hotel, had lunch on the riverwalk, layed out at the pool and went to some fun places that night. We aren't big "party" people but we had a ton of laughs and did get scolded by the hotel for having too much fun and laughing to loud!! It was a night I'm sure she will always remember!

My girl and her best friend/maid of honor.
Fun, fun times!

My future son in law graduates tomorrow night with his engineering degree and we are so proud of him! All that hard work has paid off. Another busy night on the schedule...did someone say summer vacation??

Thanks for stopping in my friends. May the Lord bless your week!
