Justin & Brianna's wedding...

As if one wedding in the family wasnt enough for a week, our son Justin & his finacee decided a week after Apryl got married that they would do the same!! It was a nice little ceremony at the beach in Norfolk, where we use to live. Her Mom, siblings and a cousin along with a few friends were there, as were Justins godfather, Larry and his wife, Tiffany.

Here are a few favorties...

One of Justins friends got his license to marry others just for their wedding!
 Love this one!!
All of us! 
It was a little windy that day! 

This one is my favorite!

What we've done so far this weekend..

Well besides sleeping in..hehe...last night I took the girl to get a haircut! Turned out cute! Then she asked for me to do highlights. Now let me tell you-the last time we attempted this...she ended up platinum blond!! What a trusting soul...well it turned out BEAUTIFUL!! This Mom just LOVES when her somewhat tomboy daughter wants to girl it up!!! She is such a beauty!!

  Looks like a Japanese cartoon
 And then she let me 'play' with it...beautiful!

Apryl's wedding...10-10-10

A few of my favorites...

I had the pleasure of giving Apryl her 'something blue' so I found stationary in the blue of her wedding colors with the chocolate brown color in a band around it and wrote her a letter reflecting on all of our lives together. I love that girl!
 Me putting her garter on with the note in it.

I know Ive not been on here a while..ok almost a YEAR!!! Crazy how fast time flies!!

Well since our nieces visit here last summer we have had a lot of activity around here so I will try & slowly catch up-I will start with the big stuff-last October my older daughter got married. When she was born I had placed her for adoption and we have had an open adoption her whole life! It was a beautiful experience to be a part of her big day. She included me in a place on honor with her Mom!!

Well I suppose you could say her wedding inspired our son who had been engaged since the previous April...and exactly a week later they had a small ceremony on the beach in Norfolk then we all went to lunch to celebrate...

and the biggest news...

THEY ARE EXPECTING A BABY! Yes by November this year we will be grandparents!!

Well I want to try & catch up with a few photos over the next few days of the weddings & whatnot so I will check back in later!
