Trevor and Laura's Wedding

All I can say is that I am exhausted from the little sisters wedding. I am going to keep this short and sweet and just say that she made such a gorgeous bride and I am so excited for them. Everything was absolutely beautiful from the wedding to the reception. Luke and Ben had both been sick with fevers and that is why Luke is grumpy in most of the pictures!

Phew what a day!

Wedding Bliss

One thing I have realized in all of this wedding planning is that people that elope are really smart! ;) The great news is..... The sealing cancelation letter came!! Remii and I started the process back in September. We had to choose to get married on either December 29th or March 29th because of his parents school schedule in Chicago. So I didn't purposely try to make my parents hate their life with me and my sisters weddings within a week of each other! The big process was getting all the letters and paperwork ready to submit. My ex finally signed a letter (after returning all of the mail to us) the night before we met with the stake president the end of January. The process was complete and finally submitted to the first presidency. It took about 8 weeks until the letter from the first presidency came signed in the mail. What a huge stress reliever that was! A friend stated it the best, she said, Isn't it odd that such a sad thing is so utterly fantastic?? And that is how I feel! That was the absolute worst time in my life and my life was completely changed overnight. I didn't believe that good guys existed and I really did believe that I was going to be a single mom for the rest of my life. Remii changed that all for me. From the moment that we met, I knew that that he was different. I was first attracted to him for his love for the gospel and strong testimony in the church. And he was temple worthy and has kept himself pure for his future wife. Ok ok and he is pretty attractive too! He is so perfect for me and my boys.

I am so overwhelmed with love and happiness right now. I can now look back on my trials that had I to go through to get to this point in my life and it was all worth it. I have 13 more days to go before I marry Remii for eternity. And it feels so far away! I know that day is going to be so special and I will cherish it forever. I am so excited and ready to start this new chapter in my life.

Pinewood Derby!

Ben was in his first Pinewood Derby last night! He was so excited to race his car. He sanded down his car and painted it black and called it the "batmobile". His car didn't do too bad. It took 2nd place twice and 3rd place once. The winning car was sanded down really thin and weighted down in the front. It was fun to see all of the cool cars and it was a great night!

Engagement Pictures

There are two people that I am in love with right now! KO Photography and of course my main squeeze Remii. :) These pictures were so freezing and windy!! And they were taken on a cloudy day. My feet were completely numb, Remii's hands were purple, and our noses were bright red! But you wouldn't know it by the pictures.
That is why I love Karina so much! She just has a way of editing and capturing the moment at the right time! Now I am just hoping that the snow melts and the sun comes out for our pictures tomorrow!!

Too fun!!!
