my baby brother got married.

my little brother sam got married yesterday to the sweetest girl ever, sarah. we are so excited and happy for them! he got married at 9:40 in Salt Lake, so we had to get up pretty early and brave the cold weather. it was all worth it though. I don't think i have ever seen a more excited/giddy couple. they have been engaged for 7 months, which in may not seem like a long engagement to most people, but in Utah? that is a very long engagement. kinda funny how it's different here. anyway, we are so happy for them! i wish sean would have made a normal face in any of these pictures, but then i remember that it wouldn't be sean if it was normal. and that's a good thing :) and besides i think we managed to get one decent one! after the ceremony we had an unplanned luncheon at the new texas roadhouse in orem. it was so fun to get both families together and stuff our faces. after that we had a little bit of time to go home and let Mosey out before we went to help set up for the reception. it was at Noah's in Lindon and it turned out absolutely beautiful. i can't wait until maddie get's all the pictures up of the reception and the ring ceremony. i still can't believe my little brother is married. i am so proud of him. he is such a stud. anyway, here are some pictures from right after the wedding...  i'll be sure to post more later of everything else that went on that day!

i wish more family and friends could have made it to the wedding and reception, but regardless it was still an incredible day. in fact, this has been an incredible weekend. we had 2 thanksgiving dinners and both were absolutely fabulous. my mom and aunt threw together a quick last minute thanksgiving meal that turned out to be amazing. then we headed over to Amanda's (sean's sister's) house for a wonderful made from scratch meal by Amanda and sean's older brother Brandon. it was incredible. thank you everyone for having us over. after that we went and saw the movie 127 hours which i highly recommend. you should watch the trailer. it is about the guy that slipped in the canyon and got his arm wedged between a boulder and the canyon wall. he stays down there for days trying to get out and has to resort to amputating his own arm with a dull pocketknife. warning, this movie isn't for those with a weak stomach. but it was incredibly inspiring and i always love movies that are based off of true stories. also this happened near moab, utah which i thought was pretty neat since we live in utah. anyway, it is snowing here right now and i am going to try to relax before we have to get ready for church. yay for nursery! ha. i hope everyone had a fabulous thanksgiving weekend! i'm not looking forward to this week...

oh! p.s. one more thing!

mosey would like to wish you all a happy holiday season.

how fun! the wedding, i mean. i love weddings. and you look gorgeous, as usual.

love your tree. so cute! we put ours up too and i'm excited about it. even thought it's only 3 feet tall.

i'm not looking forward to this week either. blah. it's so hard to go back after a break.

i have zero desire to see that movie. eek. that freaks me out. i remember hearing about that story a long time ago, so i think it's cool they made a movie. but i'm 120% sure i won't see it.

i hope you have a good week! i miss you! as i already stated on facebook like 9 times.

ps. i didn't know you were in nursery? i was in for a year and had to ask to be released when i had daner. a newborn in that place? no bueno. i liked being in though once i got to know the kids. it was fun. anyway. that has nothing to do with this comment.

Sean may just become one of my new 2nd shooters, haha, he did good work. I love Mosey, I had a dream he was chased by a grizzly bear though :( I don't think the bear caught him tho!
