Wedding Pics

Here's some pics from last weekend. My sister got married. Both Liam and I were in the wedding. Liam was a good sport. He got a little tired 3/4 of the way through and decided he didn't like his tux anymore. Other than that, everything went well. Jen was a beautiful bride. It was so wonderful to be part of her special day.

Snow pics from last Sunday





We had so much fun playing in the snow Sunday. We made the world's smallest snowman, made snow angels and had a snowball fight. Liam had a blast. He especially liked making footprints in the snow.

Tyler's Graduation

I got to go see my brother graduation from basic Friday. It was so awesome to see how well he has adapted and how well he has all the protocol down. He's off to South Korea on Tuesday for one year. There's a chance we might get to see him in August though. We went to a small party for him at my dad's yesterday. It's was great to see him all dressed up in his class A's. I will definitely miss him but am so proud.

A birthday party and a bridal shower

The weekend before last was very busy for us. Liam got to go to an awesome birthday party for his cousin Dylan. There was a inflatable bouncy castle, a magician and face painting. It doesn't get much better than that. I stayed home preparing for my sister Jennifer's bridal shower. With the help of her two bridesmaids-Leanna and Kym and our stepmom, we had a pretty good spread. Jen got a ton of gifts and looked very pretty. Not long now until the wedding! We also had very pretty bridal shower favors made by my good friend Mandy.

Gatlinburg

Below you will see pictures of our early Jan trip to Gatlinburg. I haven't mastered the art of blogging. Therefore, they are in random order. We went to Ober Gatlinburg. The arial tramride was amazing. We also got to see fake but very real snow. We also went to Mr Giatti's or something like that which was a very redneck version of Chucky Cheese-if you could imagine that. We went to the aqarium and also to AdventureQuest. Liam had a panic attack in the laser tag. I had a panic attack in the mirror maze. That would have made the trip almost complete..... Yet, one near death experience made it whole. The first picture depicts the panoramic mountain view from the cabin we stayed in. Windy and steep roads were traveled to get to this summit. Windy and steep roads were traveled down as well. On our second day there, we skidded on an ice patch, lost control of our VW and almost ended up over the mountain-literally! I've never been in a more scary situation in all my days. Our next winter expedition to Gatlinburg will be in a motel in downtown Gatlinburg!!
