A Crimson Rose Wedding

This was a wedding a few weeks ago here in Brenham. The bride really loved the 'black magic' roses, along with plenty of lush crimson red roses. Her accent colors were silver, black and cream. It was a really simple and pretty wedding.
The ceremony was at First Baptist Church in Brenham. And the reception was at Ant Street Inn. I really like Ant Street Inn. It was big enough for a large wedding, but still felt intimate. Every other pew had candles and river rocks in glass cylinders.

Rose balls were hung off the pews by black ribbon.

This was just a pretty shot of my "supplies" as I loaded my car on my way up to the church!
Sorry for the poor picture quality... once again, the only camera I had was my cell phone!
Have a great week!

A Funny Thought for Today...

Owen this summer
July 2010

Owen the night we picked him up from the airport.
August 27th, 2009

Hey there! I can't believe it is already time to go back to school. Even on the days I am exhausted and really can't take one more screaming match (the boys, not me) or one more spilled cup of red Kool Aid on the carpet, I realize that I will miss them when they go back to school.

It was our first summer with Owen home and it was a blast. Owen is actually an excellent swimmer, at 19 months old, yelling "CANNON BALL" and jumping head first into the pool w/his little arm floaties on. That is his way: he is fearless.

Reid will start Kindergarten and Blake will be in PreK. Where has the time gone?

I am so proud of them, they are becoming such sweet little men. But, trust me, they are all boy.

A funny quote from Reid two nights ago in bathtub. All three boys still pile into the same bathtub. It's fun to watch all those legs try to snake in there, knowing the days of sharing a tub are nearly gone.

So, Reid and Blake were apparently arguing over something... a toy? a popsicle? a popsicle stick? a washrag? a bar of soap? who knows. Finally, Reid looks over at Blake and says, "Blake, let's just shake hands, and let pythons be pythons."

And he was dead serious.

Are you kidding me?

Just a prime example of why I love my job!
