Brady and Adley

Wow, I'm behind on my blogging (can't imagine why!). These pics are from late August--an eternity ago. We got together with Steve's high school friends Dan and Stephanie and their respective families at Stephanie's in-law's lake house. Bianca loved meeting Dan's son two-year-old son Brady and Stephanie's one-year-old daughter Adley.

I was skeptical that we'd be able to get them all to pose for a pic. But then we bribed them with cookies. Problem solved. :)

Bianca and Brady holding hands--too sweet. She loves holding hands with all of her friends.

Bianca has been saying the funniest things lately.

"Mom, stop taking out my eyeball! I need it to see!" (When I was wiping the sleep out of her eyes with a washcloth this morning.)

"If I didn't have any feet, I wouldn't be able to stand up. And I wouldn't be able to help you make pancakes and cupcakes and bread." (Just a random comment while we were driving.)

"Mom, you need to get married next. You need to have a wedding. But not daddy. Because he's not a girl." (She didn't believe me when I told her that I had ALREADY had a wedding. So I showed her pictures.) :)

She's really into the origins of things right now:

Where do houses come from?
Where do roads come from?
Where do puppies come from?

All great questions! When she gets going on a question-spree, my two main thoughts are "How the heck did she come up with that?" and, "If she keeps getting smarter at this rate, she's going to outpace me very soon!" :)

Mia found the toilet paper...and she couldn't be happier!

Also discovered that my almost-4-year old fits into baby clothes. While I was switching out Mia's 9-month clothes for 12-month, B decided to try on a few things and wear them around the house. I always knew my girls would be able to share clothes someday...just didn't think it would be so soon. :)

Mr. and Mrs. Minton

Kora and Nick's wedding was amazing! Everyone looked gorgeous, the weather was great, and the food, flowers, and music rocked!

They look so great together!

Our flowers (by Kora's sister Kimberly) looked perfect with our chocolate brown J Crew dresses. They were so bright they almost glowed. Here my bouquet has a bit of a rogue flower, which Kimberly later fixed. :)

I love how happy they looked! Everyone was happy--it was the quickest wedding ceremony ever!

The mariachi band was such a festive touch. They just made you feel like you should be relaxing with a margarita. I'm now looking for excuses to book them. One of the girl's birthday parties, maybe? ;)

Steve and I at dinner. This was my first experience with professional makeup (Kora and I both had it done at the V Spa that afternoon) and I learned one lesson--never let a makeup artist use "illuminating" products if you're going to have photos taken because it's WAY too shiny. Other than that, I loved my look!
Giving some sugar.

Makin' it legal--whoopsie, we waited kinda late to get this done, but everything got signed and that's what matters. :)

What were Kora and I talking about? We'll never know.

Kora still looked beautiful at the end of the night! It was an honor to be a part of this gorgeous wedding and I'm so happy that my best friend is married off to a wonderful guy!
Cheers to you guys!

Hussey Minton rehearsal dinner

Just a few photos from the Kora and Nick's rehearsal dinner at the Lighthouse Bungalow last Friday. Great spot, great food, great people!

I especially love the photos of Daddy making Mia giggle, and of Biancs and Sophs playing. SO much cuteness.
