Wedding Recovery

Despite the fact that the time is just a few minutes past 9pm, my parents' house is currently dark and silent. Everyone is tucked into bed for the evening, ready for a long night's sleep.

Yesterday was my baby brother's wedding and we are in full recovery mode over here.

The wedding was beautiful, the kids were well-behaved (they only attended the reception because my nerves could not handle them sitting on the front row next to me), and the cake was delicious (Isaac consumed three idea that seemed okay at the time and then quickly turned on us once the sugar high left).

I think we might recover from this grand event by Wednesday, just in time to welcome the newlyweds home from their honeymoon (and hopefully watch them open the pile of presents stacked on my parents' dining room table....I am dying to know the contents of these lovely packages).

Because of this post-wedding fatigue, stories from the weekend will have to wait (for example, how a person asked me if I was pregnant while reaching out to touch my stomach. Seriously??). Until then, enjoy some pictures of my children's favorite part of the wedding: tossing of the rose petals. We have reenacted this scenario several times since yesterday afternoon. Who needs expensive, educational toys when one can play with collected, dirty rose petals?

#1--You do not in any way, shape, or form look prenant. I hope you slapped that person's hand.

#2--Your wedding out is cute.

#3--I remember Brit and Isabelle trapsing all over the parking lot picking up rose petals after your wedding, too. Seems it is a timeless activity.

#4--Happy New Year!

I can't believe your little brother is married. That is just crazy. I hope they're both very happy. You guys all looked great and I wish I could've been there!

You look anything BUT pregnant in that dress! It is a beautiful color on you (probably second only to the dark greens!)
