Weekend Review: Family Wedding

There's so much to say...where to start.... Well, let's start with the obvious. My brother got MARRIED! YAY! All three of us kids are married now! It was such a fun time with family and friends. Pretty much ALL of our family was there on both sides except for maybe like two people and that's all! And that's saying a lot because we have a HUGE extended family

My two brothers! Aren't they cuties?! ;)

Chris, (the groom) & Craig (his best man and brother) with the ringbearer A.J. - the cutest guy in the room! I love that kid!
Chris and Amanda with my parents, who I thought looked so cute together. My mom just gets prettier everyday, don't you think?
Chris married a wonderful Christian woman named Amanda from Ruston. It was so great getting to know her better and seeing her get excited to marry my brother! She kept saying, "I can't believe I'm getting married!" I know they will be so happy together!

B drove down for the wedding and to watch the Cowboys game on Sunday! So glad he was able to come!
We were also excited that our missionary friends from Africa - the Lechners - were able to fly in just for the wedding. We planned our wedding during their furlough just so they could be a part of our special day. Yup, we planned it all around them! That's how much they mean to us! I was so excited when I heard they were coming to Chris and Amanda's wedding as well! They were able to get a two week leave to come to the states! It was a happy wedding weekend and the newly-wed couple is relaxing in Hawaii this week! So jealous!

Being at Chris' wedding reminded me how much I love and miss your family and the Lechners!!! - and made me a little sad because I don't know when we'll have an opportunity to hang out again. :( It was SO GOOD to see you!!! Thank goodness for blogs - and soon to be facebook for me I guess! It was a beautiful wedding - wish I was in Hawaii right now too. Congrats on the new sister-in-law!
