WW - An Afternoon Wedding

May 17 2009 was the perfect afternoon for a wedding.

The Beautiful Bride

The Handsome Groom

The Ceremony

The Wedding Party

They even had a cake with thier favorite colors.

The happy couple had a bbq dinner reception filled with family, friends, laughter and even a little bickering. Everyone had a great time even if everyone thought we were more than a little crazy ... we know we're crazy and we are ok with it. You can watch the wedding video on Michelle's blog.

For those of you who are completely confused you can read all about the proposal below.

PSF - Look Mom We're Engaged!

Tonight at dinner Michelle's little blonde boy Korbin bought my Megan a ring out of one of those quarter machines and said "Megan will you marry me" ofcourse she said "Yes!" Megan is smart enough to realize that Korbin is quite a catch as far as 6 year old boys go. A little later while we were playing at Amber's house Megan asked "Korbin if he would marry her" and since they were already engaged he said "Yes!" then Michelle said Megan would you like to have a wedding and every little or big girl loves a wedding so on Sunday thier getting married your invitation is below.

Brandy and Michelle

Writers Workshop - Incomplete

Its once again for Mamakats Writers Workshop the prompts this week are ....

The Prompts:

1.) Define goodness...joy...sorrow...and anger using pictures you've taken.

2.) Tomorrow I will do it differently. Here's how...

3.)Describe a 'sound' from your childhood. What was it? When did you hear it? What does it bring to mind?

4.) I remember when...

5.) Right now is the best time to start. What's your first step?

This week I chose Prompt 1.) Define goodness...joy...sorrow...and anger using pictures you've taken.

This was us a little over a year ago ... TOGETHER AND HAPPY!

The next day we woke up and sent our soldier off to war.

We cried - Actually we still do sometimes.

We tried to squeeze in enough hugs and kisses to last for 15 months - It didn't work - I would give anything to feel his arms around me right now.

We tried to be brave but we cried some more.

We have been incomplete for 377 days - this deployment is almost over and soon we will be complete once again!

Barbie Has A New Profession

Imagine my surprise tonight when I was wondering the isles of Walmart with my girls and we come to the barbie stuff and this is what I see. Im wondering when Barbie went from the a toy that we as kids loved to dress up to this. I just dont think this is appropriate for my 4 and 9 year old daughters to play with maybe its just me and if it is I am OK with it. What do you think?
