Smith & Andrea's Wedding

Saturday night was the wedding and it was beautiful!

Andrea was a breathtaking bride and her gown was absolutely stunning! Scott looked very handsome in his tux as well. They made a beautiful couple! Everything about the wedding and reception was gorgeous.

Everyone had an amazing time hanging out, dancing, eating, drinking, and celebrating with Scott & Andrea! We were all so happy to be a part of their special day!

Here's the happy couple exchanging rings.
The kiss!
Some very serious eating was going on!
Craig & Czarina...bless her heart...she wasn't feeling very well and was having contractions all throughout the reception. She was a trooper though and stuck it out until the end! I hope you're feeling better!

Smith & Andrea's Rehearsal Dinner

Friday night was the rehearsal dinner for Scott & Andrea. Since Adam was a part of the wedding, we were invited to attend. It was at Abuelo's and the food was absolutely delicious!

Scott's parents did an amazing job orchestrating the dinner! They even brought in cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory for dessert...yummy!! I ate so incredibly much that I was absolutely miserable when we left.

Czarina and I were sitting across from each other, with bowls of dips between us. We each devoured 3 baskets of chips a piece, along with almost all the dip, and even ordered an extra queso. She has an excuse since she's 36 weeks pregnant, but what's my excuse?!?! I guess I just have to face the fact that I'm a piggy!

We all had an awesome time at the rehearsal dinner. It was great to be able to hang out with some of our best friends and be a part of Scott and Andrea's night.

Here they are again
Me & Cyrus...it had been FOREVER since I had gotten to hang out with him. He's one of our best friends, but has been in Oklahoma for the past several years getting his PhD, so we hardly ever get to see him.

As you can tell from above, all of our guys have serious issues with taking normal pictures! I've told y'all several times how nutty they are and this is just more proof. I must say though, that that's why we love them and we definitely wouldn't have as much fun together if they weren't all a little crazy!

Water Fun!

Aunt May came for the weekend to babysit and play with the kiddos. Adam was in a wedding this weekend for some of our good friends, Scott & Andrea, so we needed a sitter both Friday and Saturday night. Thanks Aunt May!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend, so a lot of our time was spent outside. Last year for his birthday, Parker got several water toys, but because of the condition of the backyard, we just now got them out to play with.

Last Summer, because we had laid new sod, the backyard was still very patchy. If there was even a small amount of water back there, it turned into a muddy mess. This Summer though, the grass has finally filled in, so I'm sure we will be spending the majority of our time back there.

Parker had an absolute blast playing in all the water toys! Peyton wasn't too keen on the ones that sprayed water, but ended up loving the blow-up pool. Aunt May joined in on the fun on Saturday afternoon and Adam actually got in the pool with the kids yesterday. He wouldn't let me take any pics though, because he didn't want pictures of him in a bathing suit on the blog...not that I blame him! There's NO WAY I would ever put a picture of myself on the internet in a bathing suit!

I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to enjoy the beautiful weather! Love you all!

Here's Aunt May in the water ring with the kids LOVE this picture! Bitty was extremely cautious!
Parker wasn't at all! He loved every second of it!
Such a cutie pie!
In the pool...Bitty was taking a nap

Here's a couple of videos that I took. They aren't very long, so I hope you can take the time to watch both of them. I think they're pretty cute!

Show Us Where You Live Friday - Kid's Room Edition


Yes, I know I am a couple of days late. Aren't I always? I wasn't able to do Kelly's home tour the last two weeks, because they were for guest rooms and dining rooms, which I have neither of. This week though, is kid's rooms, and I have two of those!!

I just recently posted pictures of Peyton's new room, because we finally moved her to a big girl bed, but I didn't like the coloring of the pictures, so I took some different ones today.

The pictures of Parker's room are probably going to be the last ones taken of his room in the current state, because we are getting ready to re-do it very soon!

Parker was moved to a big boy bed very early, at 20 months, in preparation for the arrival of his little sister. Since he was still so little, we left everything from his nursery, and did nothing but convert the crib into a full-size bed.

I think his room is a little juvenile for being 4 years old now, so we are going to make it a little more grown-up for him. We will keep the bedding, but probably remove his letters, paint over the mural, remove the shelves, and my MIL is going to do some paintings.

With all that said, here are pictures of their rooms!

This is the top of the chest-of-drawers, which is on the wall to the left of the doorway. The plate and cup are one of his keepsakes from his Aunt May. She got both of the kids a plate, cup, and silver spoon from Tiffany's for their 1st and 2nd birthdays.
This is a close-up of the picture above the chest-of-drawers. It's one of my most favorite pictures! It was taken of Parker when he was only 5 weeks.
These are the shelves and knick knacks that cover one wall in his room.
Here's the letters that hang above his bed, which were also above his crib.
This shows the mural and the corner of his room.
This is on the wall to the left of his bed. Alli had it in Trey's room and was going to trash it, so I took it! It goes perfectly in his room and is the perfect place to hang his backpack and cape!
This is a better picture of his bedding. I love it! Both of the kid's crib bedding and full-size bedding all came from Pottery Barn Kids. I love almost all of their stuff!
Here's a close-up of one of the frames on his shelf. They're all pictures from his first 6 months. So precious!!
This is his corner shelf that is full of Pluffies. We have a lot more, but some of them have been taken over by Peyton. Granna and I started collecting them for Parker when I was pregnant. They are the softest, sweetest stuffed animals!
This is his mural, which was painted by my MIL. She is amazing!
Here's a close-up of the right side. Turtles are my favorite, so she incorporated them in just for me!
Here's a close-up of the left side. She has the names of all of our family all throughout the mural. I am going to be very sad when we paint over this!
Here's a close-up of the top
Now, onto Peyton's room!
Here's her bed
A painting that my MIL did to match her bedding
A different view of her bedding
This is to the right of the doorway. A lot of this was also in her nursery.
My MIL bought the dress before Peyton was even born, and since it's so beautiful, it has been a part of the decor in her room. It won't be too long though before it will be able to be used for dress-up!
The other corner of her room, to the right of the closet. The thing on the wall is magnetic, so once she starts school, I will be able to hang up some of her artwork.
This is a close-up of one of the pictures in her room. It is Parker holding Peyton when we brought her home from the hospital and introduced them for the first time. We were all bawling!
Another close-up of a picture of Peyton when she was only 2 days old. This is probably my most favorite of her as a newborn!
This is her bow holder that hangs on the outside of her closet. The sad part is that this isn't even half of her bows! The ones that she wears all the time are in a seperate location.
This is just to show you the mural that was in her nursery. It matched the sheets that went with her crib bedding. I was very sad to have to paint over it, but it didn't match the new bedding.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour of my "P"s rooms! Please go to Kelly's blog and check out all the other rooms!
