My best friend (Shannon!) got married, and guess who photographed the big day?? It was such a great wedding, and my family got to come with me. I was a very large 7-month-pregnant woman getting down on my knees and running around for shots, but we got excellent shots!! And we made it a fun family trip.

High school friends...

And Cliff took great care of the kids and danced the night away...

Emerson V. 5.0

Happy birthday, Emerson Rose! I can't believe this little princess is FIVE! She's such a joy, and makes having a little girl so so so much fun. We had a princess party for her with a Disney princess bounce house, and she was IN HEAVEN.

Emerson 5.0
*Obsessed with makeup.
*Obsessed with princesses.
*LOVES cottage cheese.
*I'll go onto add that she loves cottage cheese burritos with honey.
*Still in dance. Her favorite part of dance is the gymnastics portion. She LOVES doing "tricks"
*Getting ready to start soccer for the first time.
*Loves to help clean up around the house.
*Loves painting.
*Loves milk.
*Loves her baby dolls, and just can't seem to have enough.

And from her party: We had:
*Cinderella's Fairy Godmother's Magic Wands (Chocolate dipped pretzel sticks)
*Snow White's not-so-poisoned apples (apple slices dipped in caramel with sprinkles)
*Jasmine's Jello
*Elsa's Bread Braids
*Gus' Cheese 
*Ariel's Fish Friends

And check out this amazing cake my friend made!! Not only does it look amazing, it tasted incredible. The cream cheese frosting was AMAZING. I won't tell you how many I ate. But I'm eating for two, so it's okay.

We had an Ariel fishing station...

Stone was the master behind the fence...

We also played pin-the-lips on the frog, and then we had a Frozen piƱata. I'm missing those pictures!
And the best part....the Disney princess castle.

She jumped in it ALL day. Before her friends showed up, and long after until the sun went down.

 This was the invitation we gave out. It was printing on special shimmery paper, and rolled up as a scroll:

Time change at church...

Our church schedule changed to 1pm this year. Though a slow morning is nice, it is the roughest schedule on the little ones (okay, and me! bye bye Sunday nap!). It was especially hard for Knox this past Sunday. He couldn't even stay awake for singing time...
