My Sister's Wedding is coming soon

I never even thought about this until Brad pointed it out...MY BABY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED in one week.

I have been in weddings and attended many but to be your sisters wedding it is feeling a bit different.

Helping Meg with all the wedding plans is so much fun. I have had to realize it is HER wedding and not mine...we are two different people and do things differently. I am overly organized and plan everything down to the last minute...Meg, well she is very relaxed and organized in her own way. But everything for her wedding is coming together so well.
I have had so much fun putting together Meg & Mich's wedding program, picking music for the ceremony, picking out the dresses, finding decorations, and my favorite...the Slide show. I can't wait.

Things have been a little stressful at times...getting dresses altered, finding the equipment for the music and slide show and finding time to do it all...but now as the weekend has given time to complete the tasks on my list I am getting so excited for the wedding.

Julia and Jade are the flowergirls and are so excited to wear thier "princess" dresses.
This weekend is going to be so much fun with spending Thursday with Meg, Kate, Mom and Dad getting the hall ready and having a few drinks up at Killbear around the fire. Friday the rest of the family and wedding party come up and we settle into the hotel and get ready for the rehearsal and the main event on the beach!!! I can't wait!!!

Last night we were able to watchJulia in her 1st Ballet Recital. I was so proud of her. She worked so hard. Here are a few pictures of her amazing night.

Can't wait til next year! Jade will be joining her too!

Looking Ahead

May was such a busy month with so many things....

1. Dan and Jenna's Wedding
2. Amy and Corey's Wedding
3. BG Club wrapping up for another year
4. Sunday School coming to a close for the summer
5. Ballet for Julia
6. Kids Day at church
7. VBS gearing up
8. VBS fundraisers going on
9. Wedding Preparations for Meg
10. Oh and then there is the daily routine with the girls, Brad's work, family matters and then all the other things that go with when you are a stay at home mom.

But with all the hustle and bustle of May brings the month that welcomes in summer. When I became a mom, summer holidays were just nothing special. It was still days at home with the kids which is normal.

But with Julia and Jade in school, ballet practice, BG CLUB, church meeting and all I am now looking forward to taking a break from the routines.

June is still busy but that is what I am use too and kind of live off of but the schedule kind of goes a little more low key...

Here are a few things I am looking forward to this summer.

1. No early mornings
2. VBS at Hillside
3. More BBQs with friends
4. Walks with the family in the evenings
5. Family Vacation to Brockville and Ottawa
6. Camping Trips with Wendy and the girls
7. and so much more that is not planned yet.

God is so Good and has blessed me with so much. I am so thankful we are able to enjoy it all.
