proof that I can still accessorize
Lucy and Asher, looking confused.
our completed house!
our solitary seasonal gourd. We decided it needed to have eyes so it could be a swan. "Fly, little swan! Fly!" Soon, I am sure, we will find it on the ground, smashed to smithereens. Asher kept wanting to cuddle with it.
berries at my aunt and uncle's, straight from their garden! Yes, Asher had diahrrea. And yes, everyone warned me. But look how much he loved them!
My master chef uncle Dave, who I secretly have a crush on. Seriously. He knows everything about everything, and he cooks like you wouldn't believe.
Lucy and one of their cats. These cats were raised from 2 days by my aunt and uncle and cousin Audrey, so they are SWEET cats!
My dad and Ash at the pumpkin patch.
My sweet aunt Lindy and the kiddos. Linda was never out of Lucy's line of vision. She just attached herself to her! Their hospitality was awesome. Like staying at a 5 star resort!
Lucy carries that God-forsaken bag around with her everywhere she goes. It's wrinkled and nasty. She takes after me.
My best friend from childhood and the maid of honor, Lori
Lori, shortly after Lucy removed herself from Lori's lap. (Yes, that's pee.)
How grown up is he??????
Lucy hugged Amy so long in the reception line that I had to peel her off. What is it about little girls at weddings? The bride looked GORGEOUS! Just glowing.
What's that? Rachel is wearing a necklace AND a bracelet? And her purse isn't some monstrosity she got on clearance? It actually matches her outfit! And she straightened her hair? I really thought the only time I might be wearing jewelry was when I was in a casket. So this is really something. And please, don't tell me the necklace is all wrong for the neck of the shirt. You might make me jump off a bridge.
I may be able to put a necklace on, but obviously there is some trouble in managing the children. Lori's sis Bets is in this picture, along with one of my other moms growing up, Marceil. Asher is looking for some Jim Beam, at this point. I swear. Men and weddings.
Lori's sister Krista and her son Ezra. I wanted to eat him up, but I didn't think that would be appropriate. SO YUMMY!
He fell asleep while we were all gabbing. My dad just laid him on the floor!
Do these kinds of pictures just warm your heart, or do they warm your heart? I LOVE watching my dad interact with my son. It's SO cool.
Walking back to the car. Do you notice we are the only car in the lot? Any time I go anywhere with my parents, we are the last ones to leave.
It was a good weekend. I want to do it again. And Scott loved the silence at home. I'm not sure he even really missed us.
