Wedding Day!

Mandy, my sister got married yesterday to Trent Nelson! Hurray and congrats! It's crazy how huge our family is getting. The wedding dinner proved just how big we've all grown (In a number sense, not lbs.) The dinner was so fun. All of my favorite people were there, my siblings of course, and we were able to have the spotlight in order to make fun of Mandy. It was hilarious! Tyler was giving me a hard time about smiling seriously for pictures. I guess this is what you get. Anyways...Part of our family tradition is to give a gift to the individual getting married and the gift has to be associated to them in some way. Almost all of us referred to Mandy's love of romance novels. I gave her a dirty book but, Libby's was the best. Libby printed Trent's face on a couple Fabio pictures and I have to say it was classic. Also, Dean's little baby Ginger was there and everyone had to hold her. She's a Mia and London twin. The wedding was beautiful especially since my grandparents flew in from off the mission so grandpa could do the sealing. My parents' yard looked amazing! I don't have any pics of the yard because by the end of the day I was sick of clicking the camera. London and I made sure our nails were painted for the occasion! Tyler, Dean, and Danny, and my cousin, Trenton, literally ruined Trent's volvo with decorations. I can't imagine what he was really thinking when he saw his car. Libby blasted Marvin Gaye when they left the house. Oh, such memories but oh what a long day! Dean and Mary just got back from Cali and had such wonderful glows!This is my dad's brother, David, my dad, me and my sister Monica. Since her hubby had to work this weekend, she pretty much stuck to Ty and I! It was fun, fam!
