"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

the kids and just a little bit 'bout the wedding!

We arrived home late last night to no phone service, which equaled to no internet. Finally, this morning the internet and phone were up and running.

Kai arrived at the wedding with 102 degree temp. Through your prayers and God's grace, it quickly went down to 99 and remained that way until we arrived back at the hotel at almost 11 p.m. The boy danced and par-tayed like it a monster!

Today we are home with Kai, still with a temp around 99. Anna Grace is up to 102 and my sweet hubby is at 101 (but trooper that he is, went to work anyways.) AJ, Amanda and myself have been spared.

Kai is feeling much better and will probably be back at school tomorrow.

Now onto what you really want to hear about.

The wedding.

It was magnificent, beautiful and went through without a hitch!

I could not have been a prouder Mama of every single one of my blessings, including our new daughter, Gloria. Who, by the way, looked radiantly beautiful!

But, I could not do it justice without providing the momentous event with it's own post and lots of pictures.

So, hang in there for just one more day to give me time to upload pics in between taking temperature readings.

I promise it will be worth it.

Hey friend - not to correct you - but 'they were spared last time' - it's just their turn in the barrel - but I'll bet those of you that were down don't get it again, it's a one time and out thing!

And OK - I'll give you a break because the phone AND 'net were down - but not having the wedding pictures up here is just.so.not.fair! ;)

Hugs and prayers that all the rest of the clan recovery quickly!

Sounds like the swine flu has returned to your home! Marissa had a temp of 105.4 after tylenol, motrin and bath so off to the dr we went and returned with tamiflu and reg. flu diagnosis. Hope everyone gets well quickly and you don't get it. Glad it did not ruin the wedding. Can't wait to see pictures. Doesn't everyone love a wedding?!?!
