The "Green's" on St. Patrick's Day

Along with the last name, I've inherited Chris' attitude towards St. Patrick's Day- I shouldn't have to wear the color green. ha! It helps to have this attitude when you don't have any green clothes clean on the day.
My girls, on the other hand, were in green and we enjoyed grocery shopping earlier in the day and pointing out all the green shirts.
When Chris arrived home, we checked out the Spring Festival on the Square. It was similar in set up to the Fall Festival. The weather was GREAT and the music was really good. But I can't help but think of Parks and Rec (the TV Show!) every time we go to one of the events in downtown Lawrenceville.

Anyhow, here are some cute pics that show just how big both of our GREEN girls are getting!!

Catch up time!

I'm going to attempt a catch up soon!

Two weeks ago, Bella had the dreaded stomach flu going around. Ter-ri-ble. I haven't had a sick kid like this before, we've been lucky to have only had colds so far - so I guess we were due. Thank the Lord, Farrah didn't catch it!!

Bella and I did a LOT of this:

I am very thankful that my parents helped so much during the week and we were able to keep them seperate. Plus, all Bella wanted to do was lay around, so it was easy to keep her in the playroom with lots of Toy Story and naps. My poor baby - it was no fun to see her like this! We are thankful, again, that Farrah didn't get it, and that Chris didn't get it - as he left to snowboard the week after and that would have stunk!

I've missed you, ol' blog.

Friday Spring Day

This video is just awesome. Chris shot and edited all of this yesterday.
We didn't have any plans - so this is just us playing in the yard, lunch outside, dinner outside, push pops, bath and bed. What a COOL memory to keep forever!!

Typical day with these full-of-personality girls! :)

The Wedding!

Well... I don't really have any pictures yet.
Dave was using our camera in the crew for the AWESOME VIDEO that will be made of the rehearsal dinner, golf with guys Saturday morning, the salon with the girls Saturday, getting ready, the wedding, and reception. I mean, it's going to just ROCK. He also did their Save The Date video.

I do have to write a couple of things before I forget and never do so...
1) The rehearsal dinner was great. We used a movie theme. "Picture Perfect"... the invites received a "ticket" to the event. Mom made film reels for the center pieces - and had different pictures of Ryan & Melissa growing up printed on velum on the "film" then lit it with a light from the inside. It was too cool! Pictures to come! I made a movie/slide show in iMovie for the first time which was fun! Everything was just so joyful - the love for R & M was just felt all around.

2) The girls did so well!! I had no idea how they would really do when it came time to walk down the isle. The whole family had gone down the isle and Sandy was a life saver keeping them from running down until it was their turn. When they did go, the full church didn't even phase them. Farrah got 1/3 the way down and her shoe fell off. She tried to step back in it, and when that didn't work, gave her shoe to the nearest person in a pew! Then, she spotted Ryan and ran the whole way down smiling! It was precious!
Then, Bella... she got 1/2 the way down, then realized she hadn't spread a single flower. She ran back up to the top and started over, carefully spreading flowers for Melissa. Steve and Lynn (GG and Poppy) handled them so so well during the wedding and even cued Bella to walk back up the isle in place after the wedding. I was so proud and relieved :) They just looked beautiful and added that special fun touch that flower girls do that I know Melissa and Ryan just loved.

The reception was so much fun - we danced the night away.

I am so happy for my brother and so excited to have another sister! They are made for each other and I can't wait to see what God has in store for them. We all left feeling truly blessed. :)

Here are a couple of pics that BELLA took from my iphone!!
