Ok, so I am terrible about updating my blog, so I am going to have to catch up on this summer in small doses! What a summer we had! We were able to go to DisneyWorld in July! It was so much fun, the kids ask me everyday when we can go back! I will be posting about that trip over the next few days (hopefully!!). Then, we got home on August 2nd, and my brother Braden and his wife Mindy got married the next day, August 3rd! What a story that is! About 3 days before their wedding, Mindy was cutting hair, and her arm kept feeling numb, and she showed my mom this big bruise on her upper arm. My mom told her she needed to go to the doctor and get it checked out, and to make a long story short, she found out she had a blood clot in her upper arm, and if she had not gone to the ER, she would have died in the next few days, it was so scary! They had to operate on Monday, and they got married on Wednesday! At first, we thought we would have to cancel the wedding, but Mindy was determined to be married on that day, and sure enough, she did it! I don't know how much she remembers, but it was a beautiful wedding. We all love Mindy, and I am so glad my brother found someone so wonderful. She has been in and out of the hospital over the last month with surgeries, they actually had to remove her top rib right under her collarbone because it was pushing on her artery causing her blood to clot! Poor girl, she is finally coming home today, and we are all hoping her hospital stays are over. She thought she would be home a week ago, but her lung filled with blood, and they had to go in and drain it. And, also, on August 24th, my sister Jamie had a baby boy, Brenden. He is adorable, and I am so happy to be an Aunt again! My kids both started school this August, Carleigh is in first grade, she is learning French this year, and loves it, and Tyse is in preschool. Ok, now that I'm kind of caught up, here are some pictures of the wedding!Their lovely car after my brothers so lovingly decorated it!
My two favorite boys in the whole world!
My mom and dad, 32 years, and still going strong!
The happy couple. This is their reception held one week after the wedding, Mindy had to wear a compression bandage on her arm.
The beautiful flower girl!
