Wuve...twuwe wuve...

Mawidge is what bwings us togetha todway...

Thankfully Scott and Sam's wedding went much more smoothly then the course of Buttercup's! And thankfully Sam was marrying her true love in her first wedding and that she didn't think he was dead....

ANYWAY, the wedding was amazing. Everything was so organized and pretty much done when we got there, so we got to spend some time just hanging out. Sam looked beautiful in her wedding dress and all the boys looked so great in their tuxes. Trevor and I had lots of quality time in the car, and we ended up coming home Sunday afternoon instead of Monday morning, which was great because then we got to sleep in on Monday. :)

We had been going to prank Scott and Sam's house the day after the wedding, but we didn't realize that they were coming home the day after the wedding to pick up some stuff before the gift opening, so they ruined our fun, but it was probably a wise decision on their part. :P

It was just such a blast - it was SO cool to have so many of our friends all in one place - made me very happy! We should do it again soon - I'm sure we'll have another friend heading for the altar before too long!!!

We also go to visit with some of my family in Revelstoke and Kelowna, which was nice. I don't get to see any of them very often - it's kind of sad that all my extended family is so spread out. I don't feel very connected to any of them, especially my mom's family. I hear Aunt Sharron and Aunt Linda read my blog though, so that's pretty cool! :)

Here's a few pictures - there's a bunch up on my Facebook, and I'll have the rest of them up on my webalbum as soon as I get the other 100 or so off Chris's laptop.

Here are the boys having fun on the swings in front of Scott and Sam's house.....

Before.... (at hair and makeup)

And after!

Scott's parents were totally awesome - danced nearly every dance together and looked great. Dancing must be the key to a long and happy marriage - they've been married for almost 30 years!

A minister was completing a temperance sermon, and with great emphasis he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river. "
With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."
And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."
Sermon complete, he sat down.
The song leader stood very cautiously and announced, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, "Shall We Gather at the River."

Ultimate Survivors 8

It's that time of year again! I'll be doing the Survivor mailout some time in the next week - my goal is to get it done before we leave for the wedding. Matt emailed me the poster this morning - IT LOOKS SOOOO COOL! Yay for Survivor!

Wow...'s been almost a month since my last post? Where did August go? Crazy!

I just got an email from Compassion saying that Hurricane Felix may be affecting our two sponsor children, Ninoska and Ricardo. I hope they're ok! I can't imagine living through a natural disaster - we're very fortunate in Canada to not have such an unstable environment.

Trevor and I went camping in Drumheller for the long weekend - we had a lot of fun. It was really nice to get out of the city and veg for a couple of days. Took a ton of pictures, of course! You can see them here...
It's quicker to put them on my webalbum then uploading them to my Facebook.

I got some photos of my niece! This is my favourite - isn't she cute?

September is gearing up to be really busy - I'm actually triple booked for Friday night, which is just crazy. I love being really involved in stuff though - I really only complain when it cuts into my reading time. :)
