We are Family!!

This past weekend we had a cookout/party/shower/celebration for my nephew and his fiance.  They live in Tennessee and we don't see them very often so while they were visiting we got ALL of the family together to congratulate the beautiful couple and celebrate with the whole family.

This is the happy couple! 

They look good together don't they?

We had so much fun, the kids had a blast playing games.

All of the kids!

Check out that adorable pillowcase dress!

Even the littlest one had a good time.

We had great food, but even better than that was the fellowship of family!

But the food was really good!

We are so blessed to have such a close family. 

It's true what they say, blood is definitely thicker than water.

Here are the sisters, just a little FYI, they are all named for jewels.
Opal, Ruby, Jewel, Pearl.
Cool, right?

This is all the cousins.  All that showed up anyway.

And a good time was had by all!


  1. Oh, I love this post! What a great family! Brandon and Lily look so happy together! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the jewel sisters together! You need to frame that picture and give to each of them. What a blessing that they still have each other! Glad your party went so good! Hope they have a wonderful, long marriage!

  2. Great pics. Looks like so much fun. Better not mess with Scott- he looks STRONG!

  3. I loved all of the pictures!! The 'Sisters' are looking good!
    That was such a neat idea to get everyone together for the occasion...
    I love that about your family...they always find a reason to get together and have fun. You are so blessed to have such a big and wonderful family!!
    Congratulations to Brandon & Lily :o)
