^^Me and my siblings (plus Charlie)
^^My parents with the newlyweds
^^My handsome boys. Wish I could figure out a way to keep their shirts tucked in.
^^ They cut the cake and then had an open mic for toasts. Charlie was being veryyyyy patient listening to all those people talk while the cake was staring at him. :)
My brother, James, is a married man! This past Friday was a beautiful, fun, and exciting day. James and my awesome new sister, Kaitlyn, got married at the Raleigh LDS Temple on Friday morning and had their reception at the country club later that night.
The boys could tell that there was something exciting going on all day, and had the best time. They were so go-with-the-flow the entire day, and the only little moment we had was when Charlie wiped his freshly washed, but not dry, hands on my bridesmaid's dress...it dried in a few seconds with the hair dryer, though. :)
Charlie was a dancing machine at the reception. He solo danced, partner danced, line danced...the whole thing. I hit up the candy bar (such a great idea) during pictures before the reception, and packed pretty much everything that was left in my purse after the reception as well. Chocolateeeeeee!!! Another great part about being one of the last people to leave was that I got to take a ton of hydrangeas home with me. Aren't those centerpieces gorgeous?! I have most of them around my house now :) and have decided that one day I'll have fresh flowers rotated in and out of my house on a weekly basis.
Let's also talk about the fact that my dad had a helicopter land on the 18th hole to take James and Kaitlyn away from the reception. Charlie and Walker.....I mean....just imagine them. We rode a golf cart to the hole, and the boys got to meet the pilot....dream come true!! Charlie asked where the pilot was taking Uncle James and Auntie Kaitlyn, and I explained to him that they were going on a special trip called a honeymoon. He said, "I want to go on one of those."
My brother and I have always had a really close and special relationship, so the entire day was just so wonderful. My sisters and I are so excited to have another sister...Kaitlyn is just pure gold and we love her!
