Last weekend the milkman and I attended Mark and Jessica's wedding. It was a sunset wedding, which the weather can be kind of tricky this time of year but this night was perfect! No wind (which there always is wind it seems like in KS) and the temperature was very pleasant.It was so fun to see everyone all spiffed up! Jessica looked amazing! Her talent is awesome, she made her own wedding dress. Beautiful!

Once in awhile I still can see a glimpse of Kenton as he was when he was a little boy. Since we had a number of extra kiddos in and out of our house the week of the barn sale the little farm trucks and tractors came up from the basement. When I came in from the barn one evening this is what I encountered. It was SO fun to see Kenton and Sam playing just like they did when they were little boys. What I loved about it even more is that even though they have become young men (Freshman in High School) they were still content to play "farm". Once again it made me realize how fast time flies and how much I have to pay attention to the here and now!

I was blessed that some of my family was able to come from near and far for the sale. My sister-in-law and niece came all the way from Arkansas, my mom and Aunt came from the promise land (Oklahoma), my sister, nephew and niece came up from Texas. It was so great to see them.
