We had the best time at Bonnie's wedding! It was sweet, Christ-centered, fun, and full of people that we love and hardly ever get to see. I'd be lying if I didn't mention that a big part of the fun was just getting to be with adults and laugh as loud as we wanted to without wondering if we'd wake up a little person with all of our fun we were having. I love my children but it does a momma good to be away. Especially when they are in the very best of hands while you're gone. Mom, Dad, and Emmy, thank you for keeping the rugrats so we could have a fun night out!
Bonnie and Mark during the father/daughter dance. He did part of the ceremony and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. He is a great daddy and is obviously very close to Bonnie. There were many sweet moments between them during the wedding.
Aside from the fact that I look 5 months pregnant in this picture, (why am I standing like that?)it is a cool one because this is Christian and when he was 7 I was his nanny. He is now 12 years old and almost as tall as I am! And Sean was particularly impressed with how iPhone savvy he is. He taught Sean all about some new applications and that's saying A LOT since Sean knows almost as much about the phone as the guys at the Apple store. That's the cake table behind us--I made sure we sat as close as possible to the bride's cake. I'm no fool.
Love her. This is Brandi, and you've heard about her before. She was the high school "youth girl," when I was the jr. high one and she's as wise, funny, gifted, and pretty as they come. This is the Brandi I was visiting when I found out I was pregnant. Her little girl that we were visiting way back then was the flower girl in Bonnie's wedding and Brandi was the matron of honor.
Casey, who took Brandi's job after her and worked with me, Carley (y'all all know her by now!), Bonnie, (prettiest bride EVER,) and me, only looking about 3 months pregnant.
Our first post-baby picture! Woohoo we did it Carley! I'm so glad you came with us to the wedding--it was fun to catch up without the babies taking our attention away from each other!
Priscilla, Mark, and me. I don't know if I've mentioned it but they are moving, (like now,) and we will all miss them terribly. Mark is the new president of Denver Seminary and so obviously they're moving to Colorado. Dern, I guess we'll have to visit.
Me and my man, minus the green tie I made him wear for the wedding...that we borrowed from my dad. Yes I made him match--and made him wear a long sleeved shirt in the Africa heat that we have been blessed ?? with here already. He wears a uniform four days a week so this is one of the few times you'll see him dressed up. I love it when he does but I know it's a pain when you have to wear a suit/tie/uncomfortable uniform shirt. I know this because growing up the minute Dad walked in from the office he'd put on overalls or those horrible polyester coaching shorts. You Waxahachie girls will remember those days!
I flagged the pictures that I wanted Sean to send to my computer and somehow the one of Jake and Bonnie didn't get to it...I'll put it on as soon as he has the chance to send it! It was, after all, their wedding :)
