I'm back -

Although I'm not sure that any of YOU will ever be back here. I'm sorry it has been so long. Some of you have been very patient - others haven't. (MISSY!) lol.

I think mainly you are all wanting to see the pics of Jada's wedding she was in. Here you go. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow or the next day to give you more pics of other events.

Rehearsal Night.

The Ring-Bearer, Chase.

Dusty and Pam - Bride and Groom.

Hair Appointments. We had to leave our house at 7:30a to make an almost hour drive to get to the salon where the Bride and Bridesmaids and Jada were getting there hair done. I was a little nervous about this becaue the wedding wasn't until 4:00p, but it ended up to be just fine.

Love the yawn - she must've been a little tired! 8-)

Jada with her hairdresser - she really did a good job.

It was finally time to get ready. Her hair piece was so pretty.
She was so patient all day (SURPRISE) - here she was just looking around and waiting.
We told her to share her basket in hopes that Chase would then walk down with her.
They made about 5 steps together when Chase stopped, held his arms out and said, "Where's my daddy?"! So cute. Jada kept going since we had told her to just keep walking if he stops.
One of only two petals that she dropped on the way down the aisle.
The happy bride and her incredible dad.
She stood very still and just looked around. Although she did find Treyton, Jackson, Nathan and I and would make a cute little wave at us some times.
I suppose that once she got up there her nerves settled down because she suddenly decided that there on the step would be a great place to deposit the rest of her flowers. Since she wasn't making any noise and not moving around, they decided to just let her do it. 8-)
Whew - this means that we made it through the wedding without any major problems. The only thing she did that made me a little nervous was during the prayer she found me on the back seat and whispered very loudly, "I have to go potty"! Everyone heard her and chuckled, but she had just gone so I made her wait. She didn't mention it again.
Celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs.!
While they were ushering people out, she had a seat and started playing with the flowers. She looked so pretty there - she must've had 100 pictures take of her while she sat there.
Jackson was totally in love with her. He told her over and over that she was beautiful. She just thinks he is the coolest and would squeal and hug him every time he said it.
There was most definitely not a prouder daddy in the world that day.
Our incredible kids! 8-) Love those little stinkers!! They're beautiful, aren't they?!?! Ok, you don't have to answer that. I'm sure it is a mommy thing! haha
The Bride, my great friend - in a relaxed shot.
The wedding party's first dance. Dancing with the Best Man - Stu, and the Matron of Honor, Lori - one of my best friends!
Jada dancing with Pam and Lori.
Waiting to catch the flowers.
Taken during a very, very touching and emotional Father/Daughter dance that left Nathan hanging on to Jada with more than one tear being shed. Wow - that was a tough moment.

This is the way her night ended. It was 9:30 by this time and she had been going strong since 7 am. She fell asleep on Nathan shoulder while he was be-bopping around on the dance floor.
She was so good and obeyed everyone. She was the talk of the wedding.
After all of that, I'm happy to tell you that on Saturday night Jada was asked to be in yet another wedding in March. She is thrilled with the news and can't wait. Thanks to those of you who are choosing her to be in your wedding - makes us so proud.

THANK YOU for FINALLY updating your blog. Oh my word...I was getting worried about you. lol!

Jada looks beautiful. I am sure she did a great job. Love the pic of her sitting on the floor after the wedding was over. That is great. I also love that she dropped most of the petals at the front of the church. I did that when I was little. Remember the gorilla, "Hubert" that I got from that wedding? And then that dumb little boy stole it!!! I am still bitter. lol!

Thanks for updating. The pictures are great! Love you...MM

I loved looking at these pictures. In fact, I kept starting over and looking at them again! Jada looked like a little princess in the wedding. Her hair was beautiful. I think it's neat that she went and had it done like everyone else. I also think it's SO cute that Jackson kept telling her she was beautiful. What a sweetheart! And it's not just you - I think you and Nathan have gorgeous kids.
