eventually i'll get caught up.

There's a cute little video over at the sister's. Seriously. Cute.

Here are some pictures from our goodbyes last week.

Ugh. Tear. :(

a short something.

It's Sarah's last weekend in the States (FOR THREE YEARS) and so we're having Christmas/Thanksgiving Dinner in about 20 minutes.

Let me just say she'll never forget this one. Just starting off with the following reasons:

- The toilet upstairs wasn't working. Dad did something and discovered one of Hadley's plastic donuts in it. All was then well with the world.

- Sarah's boyfriend (newly acquired...he's cute, and sweet, more to come on him later) works for a tree cutting service. He and Dad decided while he was visiting this weekend that they'd cut some trees down in the back that needed to be cut before they fell on the house (they're dead and rotting and stuff).

Well...after a successful day 1 of cutting trees, one of the last trees they were cutting somehow managed to, instead of falling where it was lined up to fall, fall on the deck.


The deck.

Thankfully, it only busted part of the railing and not the whole deck and no one was injured.

Everybody's freaking out about it and telling me that Chris is going to feel bad.

I choose to laugh because everyone's okay and the deck will live to see another day. That's what matters.

Someday this is going to be a really funny story.

"Remember that time Chris cut the tree and it fell and busted the deck?"

And we'll remember these special moments before Sister left to go to the other side of the world and smile.

There's more funny things yet to come. Aunt Becky and her crew will be over here shortly, then tonight we're going to see a movie like we always do on Thanksgiving and Christmas night.

I'll be sure to keep you updated. :)

neither are your ways my ways,"

the one with some more cool pictures. it needs to stop.

I'm guest blogging over at the Sister's today. Can I just say I feel ridiculously important when I type that? Like I belong at (in)courage or...some other ultra-cool place. :) Here are a few snapshots from my weekend and Monday. I'm still in love with the Hipstamatic app.

Love. It. :) Enjoy!

Is that...bad?
In Downtown Tupelo?
Crazy cool.

This one too. The Firestone never looked so cool. Ha, get it? Cool? Fire? :) Sorry.

All Hadley wanted for dinner was CAKE! It was Nana's birthday last Thursday and this is some leftover cake. What's funny is she really only ate the whipped icing. She picked it off...and then ate the cake when Nana made her :)

SUH-WEEEET! Ugh, I just melt when I see that face! :)

Hope y'all have had an awesome start to your week! :D

the one with the wedding reception where i got creative with the pictures...

So I was blessed to be able to go to Conway, Arkansas for Jordan's wedding this weekend. She started out as Sarah's friend and I kind of stole her to where she was my friend too. ;) I took a ton of picture with my NEW iPHONE 4 (yayy!!!!!) and this super ridiculously cool app called 'Hipstamatic'. So, I'm just going to let the pictures speak for themselves and I'll throw in a few words if necessary. :)

Oh, I forgot to mention Jordan (the bride) is a Christmas NUT!! She absolutely loves Christmas. Loves. It. So her reception was 'Christmas in July' :) What a cute idea! :) Enjoy!

Just 3 of the...9? 10? Christmas Trees at the reception :)

I love love love this picture. I had been trying ALL evening to get a picture of her from behind and finally got it. Ugh, love it.

This sort of reminds me of one of those pictures from 'The Ring'. Ugh, movie completely freaked me out. Leah and I had to watch 'Blue Crush' after watching 'The Ring' because we were so freaked out and would NOT go to sleep. Really...that movie is scary. But...this picture reminds me of some of those pictures in the video tape movie thing. In a totally nice way though. ;)

First dance. I LOVE this picture. Love it.

I HAD to get a picture with sister! I'm pretty sure that is a big ole fake smile plastered on my face. Don't particularly know why? Weird.

Flower girls :) And Sarah and Carli ;)

I just like this picture. They were talking and I just stuck my hand up in the air. I dunno.

Talk about a HAM! :) This is Toya's son, Turner.

That kid always has a story. He's also sang me a song about a sewer to the tune of something familiar that I can't think of right now. That's going to drive me nuts until I remember it.

And there's Toya! I think the look on Turner's face is priceless :)

Is my sister not gorgeous?? Plus the bridesmaid dresses were pretty anyway. :)

We were walking back into the reception after Jordan and Marty had left and I just happened to snap this picture. Lynzie was one of the maids of honor and is too ridiculously sweet and Nathan is a big 'ole goofball but the best thing about them is their love for the Lord. I'm so blessed to know them and everyone that was a part of this wedding. :)
