Our son's wedding

August 27, 2011 at 5 p.m.

Our son, Michael and his fiancee, Becca were married Saturday the 27th, it was such a beautiful wedding!  I'm so happy for both of them, they are such a cute couple and we're happy to have her part of the family, officially.  And their little one, Kaleb was so cute in his suit and bow tie, he had a ball during the reception playing with the new Lightning McQueen car that Becca's Mom and Dad {Grandma & Grandpa} gave him during the end of the wedding.  The wedding party looked awesome dressed in black and white.  My DH {Poppy}, Larry was extremely handsome in his tux!!  Jordan {older DGS} looked super cute and a little older standing very still during the wedding.  Super job, Jordan!
We're proud of Michael and look forward to seeing them officially known as the MARTIN FAMILY!!

These photos were taken by my Dadum's a.k.a. G.G.  Thank you, Dadums!!

I just finished this digi lo for Scrapadilly's Crop but I've decided to use it for the Big Ideas Class at Big Picture Classes since I used the word for Day 8, Live.

Big Ideas Festival LO

I decided to do a digi lo for this one at BIG PICTURES CLASSES {I had registered for the free class back when they were first offering it} because the kit I'm using has the word for the 7th day, Cherish!

Big Picture Classes {Big Idea Festival LO using Webster's Pages}

Here's Day 1's lo using the word, Share.  I don't normally use alph but I'm glad I did for this lo.  Sorry the photo is dark, used my iphone...


Kaleb, I wonder what you were thinking when Daddy & Poppy told you that the potato was fries.  Maybe you were thinking that fries sounded good because you tried to take a bite of the potato.  Daddy, Poppy and Mema were laughing and you decided it was funny too!  But eventually you threw the potatoes on the floor and just used them like a ball the rest of the day.
