A Wedding and Time With Family

Last week, Grace and I traveled to Clinton, LA for the wedding of some friends in my dad's church. It was a beautiful, simple, and meaningful ceremony of two people who are committed to loving each other and ministering to each other for the rest of their lives. So special.

Here's a picture of the wedding cake. Heather wanted a cascade of daisies falling down her cake.


For the groom’s table, I made a cake ball display.  The flavors were White Chocolate Coconut, Double Dark Chocolate, and Chocolate-Covered Strawberry.  So yummy and easy for people to pick up!


But the best part of the week was meeting my sweet nephew Jake for the first time!  I know I’m slightly biased, but he is the cutest and happiest and most perfect little 10-month-old boy EVER!  For this pic, I was sitting in the front seat of our car.  I turned around and asked Jake to smile for the camera.  He immediately pulled out his pacifier and gave me the biggest smile.  What a sweet boy!


Vincent and Grace enjoyed every minute together.  I know I’m still slightly biased, but you would be hard-pressed to find cousins who played together so sweetly.  No fighting, yelling, screaming, or inappropriate behavior at all.  They shared toys and games without being told, helped each other, and loved on each other all weekend! 



What a complete joy it is to visit with my brother’s family!  I only wish we could do it more often.  I’ll end this post with another pic of Baby Jake!
