    Thank you for sharing the photos of you and your amazing family! It is always nice to see the real person we are chatting with here on the board. Givng the background helps put things in perspective. I had read some of this before, but my remembery is not as good as it once was! I can relate to Zach not getting married, so he didn't need to be there!
    I wish the best for you and your whole family! :thumbup:
    May you be there for many more weddings and births for your growing family.

    Here in the closeup of Cody you can see his spiked hair!! His mom has been a hair dresser for years and Cody has sported many hair styles over the years red hair yellow hair spiked hair he had the tiny braid at the back of the head grown really long - longer than the rest of the hair.

    This family- Nathan's family are all into motorcycles.

    Rhonda, a lovely wedding, and girlfriend, you looked great! :wink:
    So funny about Alisha...made me think of Funniest Home Videos...a little girl got quite irritated when the boy was supposed to take her hand to lead her...you couldn't hear her, but you sure knew what her hands and face were saying! :evil:
    Zach was right, wasn't her? He wasn't getting married!
    (maybe he already figures, one wedding will be enough!)
    So cute, that you gave the bride and groom a 50th card!
    Weddings are so beautiful and lots of memories...but I'm glad my three are all settled in...it was a lot of work! :shock:
    Thanks for sharing all these wonderful pictures, and again, you looked beautiful :D

    Thanks QC I appreciate the compliments and kind words! I am obviously proud of my grands and my kids. I was raised around my mom's 13 brothers and sisters and my dad's 3 brothers and their families. We had lots of get togethers and spent a lot of time at each others houses. It seems like everyone is so busy anymore they don't do much of this anymore. So I really appreciate the opportunity to see everyone when we do get together. Especially since I am an only child.

    My DH and I definately enjoyed the day. My two sons had a falling out recently over work. Glen quit the job he had with Nathan's Co.- Woodsmall Electric and there were harsh words and problems with how Glen left. and there are still some not so great feelings so I am just glad Glen came to his nephews wedding and both Nathan and Glen talked to each other without any negativity. They are still learning and growing and I am glad they could both put their feelings aside for the day.

    Loved the next two sets of photos - your son's wedding - wow, it's like groundhog day!! Everyone looked so "cool" - Isn't it wild going back in time? Your hair was much shorter too or was it pulled back?

    Glad it was such a fun time.

    BTW, my in-laws are both only children too. There are now 6 kids (including us "peripherals') and 6 grandkids and they love it! We have family functions fairly often and I know they feel so blessed to have so much family around them.

    Thanks everyone. Esqmommy Nathan was into horses and country music at the time he married Jill. I had a cool pic of Nathan and his groomsmen in their black vests and black slacks and all were wearing their black cowboy hats standing on the front steps of the church but I couldn't find it!

    Yes they were very "cool" back then. Nathan was chubby as a teenager then when he was 18 and 19 and running around with his friends he lost the chubbiness. He started smoking when he was 16 much to my distaste. He tried to quit when Jake was born but didn't stay off them. He was skinny then. When he and his uncle started Woodsmall Electric two years ago they and the guys who worked for them made a pact to quit smoking and he is now smoke free. But he has really gained the weight! THey live in motel rooms most of the time on the road on job sites and eat in restaurants too much. Tho Nathan does take a crock pot with him and sometimes he rents an apartment for all the guys to stay in while they are on a job that will last for several weeks and then he cooks more often than going to restaurants.

    Just a quick funny! Nathan made several dishes for the rehearsal supper. He called me for a brush up on how to make potato salad. How long to cook etc. He asked me how long to cook the eggs. I said at least 5 min I prefer at least 10 min. He asked " So 40 min is ok right?" He had already cooked them that long!! I just hope they weren't rubbery!! I forgot to ask how it came out!!

    I just remembered to look in another album and found this pic of the guys in their hats. Not the one I was thinking of bit is shows the hats.

    Here is Nathan with his horse Apache. He was an Arabian yearling. Very sweet horse. Apache's only fault was he liked to lean into you and "Lay" on you!

    I love that cake!! So cute, made me smile.

    It's so nice to read about how close your family is. I think family is the most important thing, not that I was raised that way. It's something I've always craved, having a close knit family. I'm that way with my DH and kids and his family, but my family is purely professional. Each one has a degree and a very good job, my mother was a professor and my brothers and sisters mostly teachers. Me? Well that's another story, black sheep describes me well. I moved here to get closer to my DM & DD and that has happened, but one of my sisters and one brother live here and I never see them. So anyway, sorry so long. I think your family closeness is awesome!!! :D

    I used to wear my hair cut really short. It was easier back then. But I have a hard time dealing with hair tickling my neck when it starts to grow out. So I let it grow long so I could put it up in a ponytail most of the time.

    I have always hated being an only child but when I hear people having problems with siblings - my mom has 13 brothers and sisters and they all have little to do with her-- then I think maybe being an only isn't so bad.

    I do get down when I only hear from my boys once every two or three months sometimes. I know they live busy lives but they do call now and then. Usually when they want or need something!! But they do call. Nathan will call while he is on the road and talk for an hour or more.

    I have a close relationship with my daughter Sara. We are each others support system. We don't talk every day but most days. The longest is usually 3 days. She even calls me when on vacation. I don't know what I would do without her.

    I do tease her sometimes that if something happens to me she will inherit her dad and her grandma Dot (my mom)!! She says nothing can happen to me because she doesn't want to have to deal with her dad and grandma on a day to day basis!!! They would all three drive each other crazy!!!!!

    I am the closest with my oldest son, Ryan. We've been through a lot together with my ex. He e-mails me on a daily basis, when he doesn't hear from me he calls, just to talk. He's so far away now, upstate NY and I haven't seen him for 5 years due to money constraints. I'm spending our income tax money on a plane ticket for him to visit in the Spring. My next oldest, Aaron is very close with me also. He left home at 15 to be with a girl he met on the internet and I like you didn't stand in his way, I'd rather know where he was and if he was safe than have him leave anyway. I was able to spend some much needed time with him at Thanksgiving and he is now having a baby (with a different girl) and getting married. He calls every three or four days to let me know the progress of the pregnancy. The next two are my steps, Chandra and Chris, but mine, their mother pretty much abandoned them and they've lived with us on and off. They are also close. Jacob is the baby, and our little buddy, He keeps us young and happy. He is a joy.

    Gotta leave to the Doctor for a little while, ttyl.

    Rhonda, finally found the pics. Where is Sara? Loved the pic with all the grands w/little ones, but you were standing off to the side. Glen was in it. Cody is so handsome and Alisha & Jayden & their Mom are all dolls. Cute family.

    I was constantly having to step out of the way so I didn't realize til later that I never got a pic of Sara except sitting in the pews and I think she was looking back at the door. She came late and most of the pics I took of the family were before the wedding. when we came out of the church Glen was starting to lose it so Mom and Sara took him to the car and I still didn't get one of her and her kids. They sat with him in the car while I finished taking pictures.

    Here is the only pic I got of her. It isn't the best. Sara is in the blue and my mom is in the yellow.

    I figured it out before you just confirmed who Sara is. She sure favors you. Remember I told you'd I'd go back & figure out who everyone was. I'm like that with old photos too. Cherish those old memories.
