Wedding Bells!

Outside the doors of the Nauvoo Temple in Nauvoo, Illinois on December 22, 2007.

Mom and Dad, Tara, Emily with Sierra and Carmen, Mellisa and baby Santana, and our family of 6 all travelled to Nauvoo for Monie and Kyle's nuptials; Mom, Dad and Tara on Thursday, and the rest of us Friday morning. Grandma and Grandpa decided to stay home after they each had a fall in totally separate incidents. They're both OK, though Grandma dislocated her hip and had to have it put back into place {which was very painful!} and Grandpa was black and blue and sore all over after slipping on the ice during the Ice Age.

We took over our wing of the Hotel, the kids spending time in the indoor pool, and we had the doors to our rooms propped open. Kyle works at the hotel, and Monie lives in an apartment in the basement.

The reception was in the restaurant, decorated in silver and blue for a winter wonderland look. Mom did all of the food, which was so yummy!
Saturday was cold and windy, and just starting to rain when they were doing pictures. Notice the big blue ring pop on Monie's finger? Yep, she wore it in the pictures. And the girls handed out ring pops at the reception. Wasn't that a cute idea?

Daddy's a little veclempt. Talk amongst yourselves.

Here, I'll give you a topic: Breadfruit - Neither a bread, nor a fruit. Discuss!

Congratulations, Newlyweds!

Hey Annie,

You came to my blog and I had to come and see yours. I just had to comment on these beautiful pictures of the newlyweds at the Nauvoo temple. What a fabulous place to get married!! I'm dying to get out there, myself.
