Grimely's wedding...

Okay, I have to talk about our cute friend Kristen. She is the biggest Tomboy I have ever known and there was talks about her not getting her hair done and putting on a dress for her mom's wedding...but she came through and she looks so great. Whatever you do, don't tell her that she looked cute, she doesn't like the word cute.

Grimely trying to get a kiss out of Grady...Good luck with that!!!

This would be Doug doing what he does best...Nothing!!! Ha Ha!!!!

Grimely and Rhett, do you think he was nervous???

Me, Grimely and Nikki...Oh how cute!!

Grimely and her girls, Kristen looks so cute, I mean Fabulous!!!

Emily, Grady, Rhett and Weston

Me and my two most Handsome boys.

The view from the top of the mountain, Beautiful!!!

This week was kind of crazy. On Monday, Grady and I had the Gamboo. That night our friends from Iowa came over for some chatting, us still with the Gamboo. Tuesday, I still felt yuck but I was way to excited to spend time with Nikki so I just pretended to feel good. We hung out at our house and visited. By Wednesday, nobody elso had the Gamboo so I thought we were in the clear. We went to Nikki's hotel to swim and then ended up back at our house for some pizza and a good ol' visit on the driveway...ohhh the good ol' days. Thursday was our friend Grimely's wedding and so we talked about our plans for the day. In the morning we were going to get our hair and nails done and then we were going to head up to Snowbasin around 2:00 for the wedding. At about 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning, poor Taylor ended up with the Gamboo, vomiting all morning. We cancelled our hair and nail appointments and prayed that Taylor's virus would be a short one. Not so much. She had been looking forward to the wedding for months and months. I had to tell her that she couldn't go and it was so sad. She just cried and cried. Chris ended up staying home with her and the baby and I headed up to Snowbasin with Doug, Nikki, thier two kids and my boys. I have never been to such a wedding, drinking and dancing and all of that stuff. It was absolutely beautiful and elegant. Grimely looked stunning in her dress and the wedding party was also beautiful. It was a nice wedding and I think the boys had a good time with Nikki's kids. Like I said, it was a wedding like nothing I have ever seen. We rode the Gondola up to the top of the mountain for the ceremony and then hurried back down for the "reception" which meant drinking and appetizers. My only idea of a reception is when people come and walk through the "line" and congratulate you. This was way more casual and laid back. At 6:00 we had the formal dinner. When it was time for dessert, they passed out champagne and had a toast. I toasted with my Diet Coke. It's now Saturday night and Chris has been in bed with the Gamboo since yesterday. When our we going to catch a break. I keep putting Rhett to bed with a bucket and explaining to him that if he has to lurch to make sure he gets it in the bucket. So far we are 0 for 2 on the making it in the bucket. Lots of laundry. Hopefully, hopefully...knock on wood...we're done with the Gamboo. I am sooooo over it!!!

You did such a good job!! Doug is quite proud of himself. Guess I need to figure out my blog log-in again and work on setting one up for myself.
Ahh, after I get back into the regular swing of things again. Gotta go back to work tomorrow.
