STANLEY JOE'S WEDDING!!!











So another little update on how our busy weekend went!!! First I got off of work at about 315 and Dave was already waiting for me to get home. We immediately left home when I got home at 330 to make our long boring drive to Katy, TX! It took us about 5 hours 15 minutes...that is short compared to what it usually is lol....what are speed limit signs haha!!! Anyways, We were rushing to get to Joe and Carries rehearsal hoe down and the Knights of Columbus Hall. It was really great seeing all of our family and friends! They played a slide show of them growing up and there were a few pictures of my little brother Matt. It was so sad to see it, seems just like yesterday we were all together. We all miss him so much and we know that he was there with us! He would have been Joe's best man I am sure but it was great to see the pictures and know that he is just looking over all of us! Well that ended our long Friday.




Saturday, Dave and I woke up and went to the bank to close our account with wells fargo. We use to have Bank of America but when we lived in Alaska, there wasnt one so we switched to Wells Fargo. Well now that we are living in Abilene, there is no Wells Fargo here lol. It is such a pain. Then we headed off to a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception!!! I just cant believe little Stanley Joe is a married man. I couldnt be more happy for the two of them!!! He is like a little brother to me and my brother Matt's best friend!! They had a candle on the alter in memory of Matt and Emily another friend of Matt and of the family carried it as her groomsman!!! It was very nice to know how loved and missed he is and we all love him so very much. It was very hard not too cry but I always have tears when it comes to my little brother!!! So now it was off to the reception. Man was this a nice and beautiful reception!!!! Check out this Cake!!!







How yummy do those look? Well they were very good haha!!! You wish you could have some lol..Jk..Anyways the reception was so much fun, I got to hang out with my family and friends!!!!





So to end the night we have a new married couple about to start a wonderful journey together. Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Joe Swinsinski. We love you Joe!!!!
