my garden...

...is amazing!! If I do say so myself. I have green beans, carrots, various herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, green bell peppers, jalapenos, cucumbers and zucchini.

Also, we are leaving tonight for Kansas. My little brother is getting married! I'm so excited. :)

bridal shower

Sooo...I'm a little late in posting this especially since the wedding is only two and a half weeks away. AHHH!! So exciting! Anywho...I went home a while ago to help my mom and Abbe throw Jessie (future sis-in-law) a shower. We did a pretty bang up job, I'd say. It was really fun to see all the family come together. We've actually known Jessie and her family for a long time, like since before Aaron was even born. Basically Jessie's dad farms the land that was my great Grandpa's. It's kind of confusing unless I go into the whole story (which I won't unless you really want me to.) Enjoy the shower in pics:

My mom decorated the tables with vintage table clothes, pics of the cute couple, flower vases and CANDY! Each table was unique. Such creativity!

Wedding cookies. The squares are monograms of their initals, A, J and D.

We made these paper fans to put over the mantel out of scrapbook paper.


Bride to be and the Moms.

The whole crew. Don't judge the camera angle to harshly. I balanced my camera on a folding chair and managed to fit everyone in!

Breaking the Silence

A lot of you also read my sister-in-law, Abbe's blog. If you don't, she posted today about what they've been going through the last 6 weeks. Please just read and pray and be aware. It has been a very very difficult time for all of us. Please pray for them and encourage them.

All Doll(ed) Up.
