I'm way behind on the blog. My life has been one big hectic adventure the last few weeks. Now that I'm starting to feel better and the wedding I was planning is over, I should finally have time for my life again!
Quick recap. Two weeks ago Ryan left town on business for a week. It was crazy and I definitely came to appreciate even more all that my husband does around here! While he was gone we hosted a birthday party for my mom with my whole family (the Utahns anyway).
The last two weeks have been busy with wedding preparations. Ryan's brother Brent has been waiting 16 long months for his bride Amanda to get her visa and join us in America. She finally came about 3 1/2 weeks ago so we rushed to plan the sealing, luncheon and reception. It was a fun but exhausting project. After a little drama it turned out really well. The reception looked beautiful and the family and friends gathered, and most importantly Brent and Amanda are finally together and sealed for time and all eternity! Hooray! (Side note- I felt the baby move the first fairly distinct time while in the sealing room during the ceremony, very cool). I thought I had some pictures of the centerpieces I made, but I can't find them. I will do a post with some of the wedding pictures once my wonderful friend Nikkie gets them too me, she was FABULOUS! Thanks again Nikkie!
Other than that life has just been same ol' same ol' around here. I'm trying to not get buried by laundry and other house work, while trying to be an okay mom. I'm trying to get the kids out in the sunshine as much as I can handle (with headaches still being an issue) so we can soak it up before Winter hits before long. Here are a few pictures from a recent picnic at the park.
