3 Days to Go...

I'm so behind on my posting. I haven't posted our family vacation or Easter. But those involve a lot of photos and I just really haven't had time to sort through them all. So maybe one day I'll post those..maybe.

But I wanted to share with you what we'll be doing this coming weekend. Do you know these people?

Well, if you don't, you should. We have spent the last year (wow, I can't believe its been almost a year!) getting to know them and let me tell you, they are something else! Andrea approached me about photographing her wedding at a hope group hangout night. From then on, they've become part of our family. We've loved getting to share in their highs and lows of engagement. There have been tears shed and many, many laughs..Andrea's laugh is quite contagious. They love our kids almost as much as we do. (Trent, do you remember when you were afraid to hold Carson? That's so funny to me now seeing how you two are BFF.)

So anyways, see those special people up there, they are finally getting married on Saturday! And we get to not only celebrate with them, but also capture their special day. I haven't been quite this excited to shoot a wedding in a long time. I think having a personal connection with the bride and groom makes our job that much more special and enjoyable. So, this whole post was to say Happy Wedding Weekend Trent and Andrea! We love you guys and can't wait to see you get married.

Funny Brody Story

*Just a little background: when Brody is allowed to have TV time, he calls it a show.

Our boys are both sick..have been for weeks. They just can't seem to get over all this junk. So yesterday, of course was Easter Sunday. We were driving in from my parents house to be at our church. We knew Carson had been feeling bad, running high fever and was really really congested. So we were planning on bringing him into service with us. Well, during the drive, I noticed that Brody seemed a little out of it. And of course, he had fever too and soon the nasty coughing started. So, we realized neither of our kids could go in the preschool that morning. We decided no biggie, we'll just sit upstairs and watch it on the screen so that our kids don't disturb everyone. There was only one other person up there and it was because his daughter was sick too. So it was perfect. 

We made it through worship and Brody even sat and listened to Butch preach for a while. We brought some toys in but he didn't seem interested in those and just let Carson play. Soon, I realized that his diaper was REALLY dirty and had to be changed. I took him out to one of the classrooms upstairs and as I was changing his diaper he told me. "No more show! No more show!" I said "what?" "No show," he said again. Soon, I realized that he did not like the "show" were watching. You know, the "show" with Butch preaching about Christ's resurrection. It was hilarious. He thought we were watching a show on that big screen and he didn't think it was quite entertaining enough. It was precious. 

I'm sure stories like these aren't as funny when you weren't there or couldn't hear his little voice. But still, to me, it was stinking funny.

Quick Pics

This is what life around here has been like for the past few weeks...chasing this one around! He pulls up on EVERYTHING and makes me nervous. He has no fear whatsoever! He gets into things that Brody never dreamed of getting into. Boy, are these two totally different. Which is great :)
