Fran and Ernesto's Wedding!

The nieces and nephews handed out programs to those attending the wedding. They all looked adorable (especially the two youngest, I mean seriously how cute are they?)!
Gavyn and Abraham

Here are the bigger kids, Grace, Naomi, Mikah, Hannah and Josiah - they all took their job very seriously! My mom made the girls dresses, very simple, yet very pretty!

Fran and Ernesto

Jackie (my oldest sister), me, Emily and Wendy (Fran's roommates) and her friend Jenna, she had two other bridesmaids, her friend from her Eddie Bauer days Amy and then Ernesto's sister Maria (but they aren't pictured, blame Chris-he had the camera).

After the wedding, me with my love!

Me and the kids

Kissing - LOVE the red flats my sis wore! After we left the church the wedding party went to Montrose Harbor to take some outdoor pictures. I should have grabbed the camera from Chris, cause the pictures there were AMAZING!

Reception!

Fran had some wonderful friends decorate for the reception. This is one of 3 banners that hung behind the wedding party during dinner. It's hand painted! Love it! The place it was held, "The Loft" was amazing - wood floors, with one brick wall.

Her cake was amazing! I loved the Chicago skyline made out of white chocolate, it was yummy!

Aunt Fran and Mikah


Aunt Fran dancing with Gavyn (she talked about nothing else for 2 days, but dancing at the reception)!

Dancing with Daddy! Too cute!

Me dancing with Mikah (somehow I made it the whole night without taking off the heels, don't ask me why - I don't know.)

I'm the mom of a 5 year old!

That's right, our little guy turns 5 today and poor little guy is sick with a fever (he is acting fine, just has a lowgrade fever)! :(

I can't believe it, it seems like it was just yesterday he was a tiny baby that I had no idea what to do with! Now he is growing up and I still don't know what to do with him AND he starts kindergarden this fall! :) Oh what will I do?! 

Despite the fever we took him to IHOP this morning to eat pancakes  (he has been talking about this non-stop for the past week) and Chris' parents met us there which made it extra special.  We are supposed to go Incredible Pizza tonight with the whole family (which he also has been talking about), so we will see how he is feeling and hopefully his fever will be gone for good. 

Anyway - here is the birthday boy, sporting his new shirt from SuperDawg in Chicago!
