Going to the Chapel....

Katie (my sister) and Matt are getting married this Saturday!!!! I am so excited for them! They are perfect for each other, God brought them together at just the right time. I am so excited to be gaining one more fabulous brother-in-law. I'm super excited that they will be living down the street from us too, once they get back from their honeymoon!!!!

We leave tomorrow to head down to Montgomery for the wedding. It will be so much fun, but a LOT of work, for this is the "junior" Bridal party (taken a year ago, June 2008) - they will look something like this, except Henderson will be wildly running down the aisle, I'm sure!
Yes, Henderson is supposed to walk down the aisle as a ring bearer - Wilson too! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! We will just see about that - you just never know how a child (baby) will do! I'll make a final decision about Henderson at the rehearsal tomorrow night! The good news is, Will is taking Henderson and Wilson OUT of the sanctuary as soon as they make it down the aisle, so as not to distract during the "serious" parts!!!
Keep us in your prayers, as Will and I will be staying in ONE hotel room with the 3 children - I'm hoping Henderson's pack-n-play will fit in the bathroom, and I'm packing the loudest noise makers we own! My biggest concern about sleeping isn't night time - we will be up late and they should crash - it's NAP TIME on Saturday before the wedding - that's the tricky part!

It will be a busy, but FUN weekend! I can't wait!

How funny! My sister is getting married this Saturday as well. We are all also in the wedding down to Lydia who isn't even walking yet! HA! We are headed to Birmingham to have the same "Hotel Experience" with two kids...Lord help us all!

I love weddings! Congrats to your sister and future brother in law. And how fun that she'll be down the street from you.

Eat some cake for me! But if you want the kids to sleep, I'd pass their piece to someone else.

And no matter what the kids do on the walk down the aisle, I'm sure it'll be precious! (and if not, you can always send it in to the funny video show and try to win $100,000!)

Have fun!

We just did the same thing - quite interesting. Nap time was definitely the hardest. We closed the curtains, turned the TV on really low (for MM) and we all crashed for about an hour. I felt like I was back on the sleeping porch at the sorority house - dark, cold, and quiet! Not quite long enough for Anna, but it was better than nothing!
