Gary & Chanell's Wedding

I can't believe it, they actually did it. They finally got married and it was a long and busy day. In the morning there was a pancake bunch, which turned out to be better then I thought it would be. I think they had a cute guestbook, definitely not a normal guestbook instead; a yearbook like guestbook with lots of pictures of them and lots of space to sign and write a quick note or advice- really cute! Kayla and The Bride ChanellThe three brothers Ryan, The Groom-Gary, and CraigIn between the bunch and leaving for the temple I had to make a poster and organize myself for Sunday - see I'm having a 72 Hour Kit Class in a couple of weeks and I wanted to have a poster demo up for church - thank you David Romney. So after I finished all for that, off to the temple we went. Craig was in one car and Tanya, the kids, Tibi (she was my babysitter for the temple-ya) and myself were in an other car. Craig had to leave early cause Gary had asked him to be his witness during the sealing. The sealing was just beautiful and gave you that sense that everything was going to be alright, you could definitely feel the spirit. The sealer did an awesome job and in my opinion hit all the right points to help them make their temple marriage work and last forever, all the things Gary and Chanell needed to hear. After that PICTURES!My Beautiful Little Rae Rae
After the temple-right over to the reception. They had a beautiful ring ceremony that was given be President James Robison (a member of our stake presidency and Craig's uncle).
It was a very nice reception lots of good food, delicious homemade cake, beautiful weather not to mention the excellent salsa; but it was a lot of fun. Chanell looked absolutely beautiful and Gary was quiet handsome, you could just see them both glowing. I was so glad when this day was over, (for those of you that might know what I'm talking about) but to my special it turned out to be a very good wedding/party. It might have taken a lot at first but it all came together very well in the end. Now they're off on they honeymoon and when they get home-REALITY WILL HIT and it was hit hard.A little frustratedCraig's nieces Kinzi and Mazie just having fun.All the grandkids and grandpaThe CakeThe First DanceKayla and her cousin Troy dancingFather and Daughter and Mother and Son DanceI think Austin is getting tiredKayla and Austin eating cake

Oregon, The Griffiths have a cabin right next to the ocean. A very quiet and cute little town but I can't remember the name. They just wanted to relax and not do much of anything.

That sounds nice. I want to take a road trip sometime and go to Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Never been to any of them but I know they are super beautiful.
Nana, I am coming into the valley this Monday and will be there a long time and am going to the cabin with my family for the 4th, so I'll be up there for about a month. We'll hang out okay. See you when I get there. Game night??
