Now Introducing


When I heard the official introduction at the end of my brother's wedding ceremony, I was overcome with amazement!! My little brother was now a husband.... a man committed to loving and serving this sweet young lady as Christ loves the church. I was overcome!!

I remember this little boy....

  • the little boy with the bowl cut:)

  • The little one that Momma brought home and I helped name:)
  • The one that we'd dress up when he was sleeping in the carseat!
  • That I had to carry to bed when he fell asleep watching TV when I babysat.
  • Or that was homesick when our parents were on vacation and asked me to come home from college to take care of him.... yes, I did drive home (miss a class or two & work time)! TOtally worth it... and I MADE him take a shower... possibly is ONLY one that week.... LOL!!
It wasn't that I was surprised that soo many years had passed. Or that he's now mature and able to care for a wife (and maybe one day a another little one).

It's was just that he was my LITTLE brother...
and now he's a husband!!

ok, ok.... the wedding...

After the ceremony, it was all about kicking back and enjoying the party;)

Chris began with a celebratory handstand;)

Nate made sure he had all his goods:)

Anna went out on the dance floor;) She's quite the party dancer;)

Brian danced with Lydia:)
Even Brian and I danced.... I can't remember EVER dancing with Brian!!! Isn't that strange?

And Chris entertained himself and others...

We had to exit early since we had the kids with us!

We promised them Rita's Italian Ice for doing a good job in the wedding.
All 3 got some, I didn't get a pic of Chris... he was DONE with pictures;)

And while we ended the evening with Ritas...
they wished the new couple well as they left the reception hall... i was sorry to miss this!!
