Last but definitely not least make-up post!

The last event I missed while taking a blogging break was John and Sarah's wedding. The wedding was beautiful. Sarah had every detail planned perfectly. I can't believe John is married. I should post a picture of how little John was when we got married. I wanted to create a cute collage but I never got around to making one. Brittany - I seriously need a tutorial. Get ready for picture overload.

Judd & Jeff after changing into their tuxedos. Always goofing around.

Is it just me or does Jeff look like a cardboard cutout?

and this one. I can't believe how much he has grown in a few months.

Cute Paige helping Bronco pick up his bag of candy. We sure miss Jeff & Paige. I think the candy bar was probably my favorite part of the wedding. Thanks John & Sarah for a great day.

This picture sums up what seems like my daily life--constantly disciplining Bronco for teasing Mav and comforting Mav.

Hadlie's love cookie - read below

I love this time of the year as the weather changes and some of my favorite fruits and vegetables are in season. I love that my mom takes the time to grow a garden so we can enjoy such great food. I know bratty of me to let her do all the work and enjoy her labors. My mom also happens to be an amazing cook. She makes such great meals that eating out sometimes doesn't even compare. For example, on Sunday this is what she made and I ate. I am a little embarrased to list all I ate but here goes. Judd says that when I get to my mom's house, I eat non-stop. I first ate a bowl of raspberries (from her garden) with milk and sugar. Dinner consisted of marinated chicken on the barbeque, steemed green beans and carrots, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, and bruschetta with fresh mozarella cheese. All of the vegetables were home grown. Dessert was fresh peach pie and chocolate marshmallow cookies with chocolate frosting. I was in heaven. Needless to say, I was inspired to brave the fresh peach pie because I had a whole box of ripe peaches. Yesterday when the kids came home from school, I told them to get washed up and ready to make dough. They absolutley love rolling out dough. While we were making the dough, I started to ask about school. When I asked Hadlie she said. "Mom, I can't believe it. I fell in love." She continued to explain that she thought he was very handsome. So I asked her what made her fall in love with this boy. She said when she heard him sing. When asked about the song he was singing she said. "Ooooh Oooooh Baby." She then called her dad, Grandma and Grandpa to share the news. I think we are in trouble. She also said that his voice was good she was going to invite him in her band.
