Chris and Anna's Wedding in Pictures

Chris and Anna's first dance to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz. They were so adorable. Later I learned that my mother-in-law and Ben's Uncle Ed are really good dancers. You should see them do the twist!  Ben's Richardson grandparents won the dance off for the couple who had been married the longest, 61 years! I missed Ben's dancing since I was off trying to perform an exorcism on my daughter but I heard it was pretty fun too. 

The view of the reception from the dock. Ben's entire family and all of their friends worked so hard to make this wedding fun for Anna and Chris. Ben did a great job with the ceremony. I was proud of him. 

I would love to show you multiple adorable pictures of my angelic flower girl daughter but unfortunately she failed to make an appearance for the weekend and was possessed by something slightly more demonic.  P.S. I really loved our bridesmaids bouquets they were gorgeous.  You can't really see it but I have a really pretty orchid in my hair too. P.S.S. I am not naked. 

I don't think Ben's dad sat down all weekend. Not that there's anything unusual about that fact. He managed to calm Aidan down several times. She LOOKS angelic at least. And she walked down the aisle very nicely which is the most important part. 

Now you can start to see Ben and I's eyes glaze over from the exhaustion of trying to make Aidan behave.  In fact while we were taking this picture she headed straight for the lake but fortunately Zack Ward intervened. 

 This is my favorite picture that we took of the Falcon's. The sunset was so beautiful. I just love Anna's dress. She looked like a supermodel. I hate her. Not Really!!!! Just a little, just her arms. 

Anna and Chris make out behind her brother's back. It's okay Ben they're married!

Oh look Aidan came back to us! With lovely morning after flower girl hair. Your hair really does get bigger in Texas. You should have seen mine this morning. I looked like Dolly Parton. Strangely there are no pictures.

Random Picture Fun

We have been so busy lately with baby showers and weddings! Ben's sister's wedding is next Saturday and Ben is now doing the ceremony too! Also I got an Iphone and I'm not going to lie sometimes it's hard for me to drag myself away from it and get back on my actual computer. They need a Blogger app! My pictures have been sitting on my camera forever so I need to get back in gear.

Aidan and I on Mother's Day. Aidan calls earrings pretties.

Chris and Anna modeling our his and her's snuggies. Now available in hospital green.

This picture of Vivian and Aidan makes me laugh every time I look at it. Please enlarge this and see the funny face Vivian is making.

Here's a gorgeous picture of you Viv, so you can't be mad at me.

I just realized that every single item of clothing that Aidan is wearing in this blog post came from her Aunta. Thanks Anna!

Aidan's 2nd Birthday

I'm sure I'll have a couple of posts on Aidan's birthday but I wanted to get some pictures up tonight.In case you can't tell the theme was Finding Nemo. Subtle huh?First of all can we talk about how amazing this cake is? Katie did such an unbelievable job. I almost couldn't cut into the cake. It just seemed wrong. I wish I had taken a picture of Aidan's face when she first saw the cake. She was soooooo excited and kept yelling cake and Nemo!

Blowing out the candles with Daddy.

Going for the first bite. She was much neater this year.


Aidan and Viv playing with the train that Aunt Lindsay sent. Let's just pretend they played this nicely alllll day.
