Mary and Asa's Wedding

Today was a VERY special day for Mary. It was a beautiful wedding.

This picture is out of order because once again I messed up BUT it is a VERY important picture SO you will just have to bear with me:O(

The girls visiting during a break from pictures
Such a happy bride

With her brothers

It was a cookie reception with just a small cake for them. I had never seen that before.

Dr Frier had cut down a lot of red cedar trees and they were in the reception hall. The fragrance was just incredible as you entered.

What a lovely winter wedding.

The Photographer In Action

Today was Mary's wedding and Sarah was the photographer. She has done one other wedding but I wasn't there to see her in action. She has three more within the next few months. I am so excited for her and how her business is taking off. I decided I wanted to get just a few pictures of her in action. She knew pretty much everyone involved today, but I enjoy seeing her working with people making them comfortable with her.

Bridget (Steve's cousin) was Sarah's assistant and a BIG help!
She is actually taking a picture THROUGH the snowflake.....What a neat effect!
Check out THE picture.

The boys.... Thursday....

As I said earlier today, Tenille is in Alaska visiting her sister Cyndi so the boys are staying at Grandpa and Grandma's a couple of days. While Ryan is doing school Reed played all morning then this afternoon he wanted to watch "Zebra in the Kitchen" One of his favorites at grandma's house. But he can "multi-task". He built this lego tower while watching.
Reed loves ANYTHING to do with BALLS! Caught him tossing the ball.
Then I saw that I was also catching him in the mirror....

He also loves watching the birds. Cardinals are his favorites!
playing a little game
Ryan spent most of the day with school. It is 2:56 as I write this and he just brought his finished work and it is COMPLETE !!
One day down.....It went well!
Bible is the first subject of the day
He is learning to write a letter
