On December 8th I attended the beautiful wedding of my niece Erin in Boerne, Texas. The wedding was held at a Wild Life Reserve and would you believe I captured no pictures of the wild animals.
Also very few pictures of the wedding. We were ask not to snap pictures while photographers were taking theirs.
Actually I was so busy catching up with family members that I only saw one animal when we first drove up there was a huge giraffe standing near where the wedding was fixing to start. lol
Erin grew up in New Braunsfel with her mother Roseanne and is the daughter of my younger Brother Tommy who lives in the Houston area. Tommy and Roseanne were divorced when Erin was just a baby but Tommy was a big part of her life. Roseanne did tell me at the wedding how much she appreciated Tommy being such a good Dad to Erin. In the picture above it is Erin with her Mom's side of the family.
I have not seen the one of Keeton's posing with Erin.
Here is my daughter Christi posing with the mother of the Bride Rosanne. They are standing in front of a wall that my brother made for the reception. It was sitting at the gate where you went into the reception.
My brother Tommy grabbed my hand and led me over to it and I would have loved to have taken a picture of that moment. When we walked up to it there were to white gloved hands sticking out of two different openings with a glass of champagne to greet you. I don't know about you but I have never seen anything like this. It turned out it was the only glass of champagne I had all night and it was darn good.
Here is Rosanne posing in front of the wall. Tommy did a great job making this for Erin.
Turns out I was told he also hung all the lights in the enormous tent where the dinner was held. We are talking a lot of lights.
The tent was decorated with the most beautiful flower arrangements.
Let me tell you they spared no expense for this celebration After the sweet ceremony held under a oak tree the reception was held on a pretty rock patio where finger foods were served along with the open bar.
Then we were invited into this huge tent where caterers served us a delicious fancy chicken meal. You know this ole country girl I did not even know what I was eating but it was really good.
In picture above is Father of the Bride my brother Tommy visiting our table. Here he is talking with my oldest Brother Billy and Sister-in-Law Linda.
Sitting next to me is my darling niece Connie with her precious daughter Leslie.
I laughed at this picture of Linda serving us some of the many desserts they had for us to enjoy.
Got lucky and snapped a picture of the Bride Erin with her Mom.
After dinner there was lots of dancing held in a barn.
I could not help but wonder what the wild animals thought of all the noise late into the night.
The next couple getting married in June is my Nephew Gary with his fiancee Elizabeth. She is from Lansing, Michigan where the wedding will be held. So I guess I need to start saving my money again for a trip. I love love Michigan and it would be so much fun to witness the wedding of these two.
It was a fun night and wanted to share some of it with you.
I know you are just as busy as I am trying to get everything done before next week. Time has a way of getting by us way to fast.
My life is really going to change in the next six months. It seems my landlady sold her Hotel/Casino in Laughlin, Nevada and she came by yesterday to give me the good news. Her plans are to make a lot of changes out here on the North Forty and not all of them I am wanting but I only work here.
Her biggest plan is to build five or more small houses out here that she calls Cassita's. She wants to rent them out to women who want to have a business in them and also for them to live there too. I can't imagine that happening but I do think she will build the houses.
I am use to living by myself and when Spring gets here I have a feeling those days may come to an end. She is a hands on person when something big is going on out here so can you imagine how long it will take to build five or more houses. lol....OMG.....
She thought all my furniture that I have moved into my living room out here is way too much. Busy I believe is the word she used. haha....
Well it is late and I need to do a few things before turning in for the night. It was in the high 70's today but in the morning we are suppose to wake up to freezing temps. Too much of a difference. Texas weather is like that though so nothing new.
Take care and slow down everything will be done by Christmas Day. I promise!
