Kimberly and Grant sittin' in a tree...

We just got back from the wedding of Chad's cousin Kimberly. She's the daughter of Chad's dad's brother and let me tell you -- these people know how to PARTY. We got there Thursday and there was a party at Kimberly's parents' house. The next day, Julia (flower girl extraordinaire) and I went to the bridesmaids' luncheon, which was all girly and fun. That night was the rehearsal dinner, which was also a lot of fun. Then Julia had all her beauty appointments (nails, hair), the absolutely beautiful wedding Saturday night, and then the reception, which was the party to end all parties. So all weekend, we were either hanging out in our AWESOME hotel room or at a party somewhere enjoying Chad's extended family and eating yummy food. It was great fun! Kimberly is such a wonderful Christian girl and Grant, her new husband, is a great Christian guy and we are so happy for them. Everything was perfect this weekend -- a terrific way to start a new life together. It was also nice to spend time with Chad's uncle and aunt Mark and Jill and Kimberly's sisters Kelly and Chaney. And we got to meet some of Jill's family we had never met before.

Julia LOVED being the flower girl. There were no other kids around her age so hanging out with the big girls was so exciting for her. And Kimberly made her a necklace to wear with her flower girl dress -- something she'll always treasure!

Here's Kimberly cutting a rug with Grant on the dance floor at the reception. Hard to believe she was our 12-year-old junior bridesmaid 13 years ago!

Caution: White Church of Christ girls on the dance floor! Julia and I are dancing to "We Are Family."

Blogger isn't wanting me to post any more pics, but you can see Chad's blog for a few of how Jenna responded to the weekend's festivities.

Oh -- and we're moving in two weeks!!!

    White CoCs on the dance floor can be a very scary thing. Especially if they are VERY white and VERY CoC.
    But you girls looked like you handled it beautifully.
    Good luck on them move.
    Been praying things run smoothly for you. Those out of state moves can be a real pain.
