That is really the only word that is needed to describe the wedding of one of my closest friends.  The weather was beautiful, the reception was beautiful, the bride and the dress were beautiful.  They whole day was just a beautiful day!

I only took a few pictures and now that some have leaked onto facebook I feel like I can post some of the beautiful dress and the beautiful bride.  I can't wait to see more from the photographer(she also did my wedding and the pictures are... BEAUTIFUL- what other word would I use:)!!!)

The only picture I have from the rehearsal dinner... blurry, red eye and all:)
It is not like me to not have a million pictures... it feel weird!
The gorgeous dress

The gorgeous bride!

Watching Aunt Gena!  The most beautiful little flower girl!

Not the best picture but it is a picture of the two of us;)

BIG Changes here!!!

This stroller in showing BIG changes in this house....

There is NO LONGER a baby... The stroller is empty because my baby wants to run run run!  He wants to do EVERYTHING his older sister is doing!  Therefore that means mommy is pushing an empty stroller and chasing a wild man:)

Daddy got to experience the toddler on the loose at the mall this weekend (if I hadn't kicked Emma out of the stroller she would still be sitting in it).  He did such a good job staying with us they both got a Carousel ride- a first for Liam.  He usually just got to watch Emma!

Today was the perfect fall day for a trip to the zoo.  It was great.  All the animals were on the move... as was Liam:)  They did great!

He was beyond excited to see EVERY animal and has the BEST facial expressions when seeing them!

When we walked this summer this is what we used to see(on the top)... Beautiful sunrises! As the days and weeks have passed we now see the moon. Big it is not lucky and overcast.

A Best Friend!!!

A dog truly is a best friend!  Sabol was the model of the perefect dog!  We got Guinness at a VERY VERY young age!  We had to feed her one piece of food at a time because she did not know how to eat! Sabol took control and became her "mother".  We really never had to work on "potty" training with her because Sabol did all the work and would take her outside!  It was great!  We are in shock when we get our next puppy!!!  I don't think Guinness will be as motherly as Sabol was!!!
Sabol may have drove me nuts on MANY occasions but I could not have asked for a better dog!!  She went from being the QUEEN of the house with Just Jeff to having me move in, then Guinness and then Emma all within 2 years!  She was not bothered by any of it!  

She was AMAZING with kids!  When she was sick at the end she never flinched as Liam and Emma crawled all over her and Guinness chewed at her face!  She was just an amazing doberman!  She was nothing like the dobermans you see in movies!!! 
I have a zillion pictures but these are just a few that I easily found:)

Even taught Emma how to be a puppy;)

Love to Mema and Papa!!!

Making sure daddy changes the diaper correctly!

Meeting her little brother:)

The abuse she took!

She will not miss that white stuff!  She is wondering why we moved her from sunny SC to snowy NY!!!

The Best Guard Dog ever!  Warmed up to both Emma and Liam immediately!

We have a preschooler and she said she LOVED it:)
This weekend Emma got "dressed" up for some photos so we weren't doing them rrushed this AM.  She actually loved doing them again.  They cam out cute and I liked them but after we did them we made some changes to the door behind them and it looked SOOOO much better so we needed knew photo's today:)

 LOVE these ones!  I think he wants to go to school.... as long as he can stay attached to me he will be HAPPY!!!

 There is our big girl at PBNS!!

Looking for her backpack:)  Everytime I would talk to her about school she would look behind her and say But somethings missing... She had to wait until this AM to get her bag:)

The REAL first day....
She was so excited and had to pick where to sit:)  Liam of course had to hop right in!!


Notice the change???

HMMMMMM.... I think I will like it there

was too busy checking out what Liam was doing

Will be fun to watch her grow next to this rock as the years go on!

So proud of our big school girl!
Emma did great!  There were no tears.... only from mommy!  There are some really sweet kids in her class and I ended up knowing two of the like girls moms so that was nice... small world:)  I am hoping that the excitement continues and she continues to love to go to school and meet new friends!

Liam on the other hand, he was lost with out her.  I know he will love the time soon... probably by Tuesday but today he just kept going to her bed and peeking over the railing wondering where she was.  It was cute and sad all at the same time!!!
