As I sat across from him at the restaurant I got a little teary eyed. He had just gone through the temple with his bride-to-be a week before the wedding. (I couldn't go because I had a prior commitment with a cute little 3 month old, I joined them for dinner). Grayson looked so grown up. My baby brother looked like a real man. I'm sure this is a fraction of what a mother feels as she sees her children grow. I know.... so cheesy
Luke grabbed his toy and started eating it for the first time at dinner!Grayson and Jayde were married at the Newport Beach Temple the next day.
This past weekend the wedding festivities began at the Old Spaghetti Factory the night before the wedding. Sisters!!!*Courtney, Jayde, & Kairistiona
My parents hosted a luncheon at Jayde's aunt's house. My mom made over 100 individual carrot cakes and her best friend, Carrie, decorated them. So cute!Saturday night was their reception in Bakersfield. Which brings me to the biggest reason why I haven't been blogging....
I have spent every spare moment of my life making two pink, sparkly dresses. My house has been covered in glitter. Kevin was such a good sport, he only complained once about going to work covered in pink glitter. The pediatrician and the babysitters at the gym have commented on my glittered baby... poor Luke.
The little boys dressed as "Newsies" I just love those hats!
We had a great time that night. We are so excited that Jayde is in our family now! She fits in so well.
