A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Showering her with Love

It's been sort of tradition on both sides of our family for the Aunties 
to give bridal showers to our nieces as they prepare to marry their true loves!
Last saturday my husband's sister and I honored our youngest (Hemmer) Niece
and hosted a bridal shower with family and friends.

My sweet niece Jillian,
 I think she's just too young to marry, but I guess I was the same age (21) when 
I got married to her uncle, so I guess I cant really say anything about that  :)

Good times

My two nieces', sister's Kellie (matron of honor) and Jill. 
Kellie was married one year ago in June. 

Jill is quite thrilled with the mirror she received from her registry.

It's been a busy 2 years for this mamma!

It was a great show of family and friends to celebrate the upcoming 
wedding of Jill & Travis June 15th 2013
 I took this photo of the kids last Fall, such a cute couple!

On a side note..... switch sides of the family and let the baby shower's begin,
In two weeks the aunties on my side will be giving a double baby shower for my two nieces who are both expecting their first babies in July & August.
 So much fun to be had this summer for our extended family!
