Sarah's Wedding Festivities

David's younger sister, Sarah, married Chris Nicholson on Sept 6th. We got to spend the week with all of David's family and we also made the cake. Yes, I say "we" because David was my very talented sous chef for the week. He was VERY helpful and I think he enjoyed himself a lot! Here are some pics.
Lingerie Shower, all the Jones/former Jones women:

Rehearsal Dinner (Hawiian Theme with AMAZING food!).....

The Wedding was at a Georgia Plantation Home, and even thought the train ran by at least three times during the wedding, the ceremony was sweet and beautiful
The House:

Sarah, Chris, and the flower girls and "ring bearers" even though the didn't exacty carry anything...still cute:

The whole wedding party:

The Reception:
The cakes.......was supposed to be a five tiered one, but that didn't quite work out:) Pretty satisfied with the final product, though

This is the Groom's Cake made by Chris' mom, Nana, and Grandpa: all the placed he has been to in Africa

They had a line dancing instructor come to the reception and teach us new line dances, afterward, we all did the electric slide and the cha-cha slide. I have to say that the award for the best dancer of the night went to David, surprisingly!

Trying to get this dance

The send off was set to giant sparklers...there they go.....

For my birthday we kindof did it in stages. When I got home from work on my actual birthday, I came home to this........

I don't know if you can tell very well, but David made me a tent to come home and relax to after a long week of work

Then, David took me shopping at the mall (had some birthday money to spend), and we went to my favorite restaurant in town, Wilde Rock Cafe, and there was even a guy playing piano right by our table. Here are some pics of us at home that day:

Part Two:
We had a chance to stay at a condo in Clearwater, FL (near Tampa) thanks to Mike and Wendy Caulley! So, on our last night, we went to a nice restaurant by the bay and went putt-putt golfing. Here are some pics from that:

This is the view of the bay from our table

Us on the pier by the restaurant (smelled like fish guts, but still romantic:)

Here we are practicing our putt-putt skills

At the Airport......

So we checked our fantasy teams (yes, thanks Aaron Henderson for roping me into fanatasy world) in the Orlando Airport before we left for our trip home, and I saw that the game between Baltimore and Houston had been cancelled. So I'm super bummed and on the plane to ATL, we realized I could still drop add if I had people who hadn't played yet (which I did:). So, happily, I get out the computer and see that internet access is $8! Which, as you probably can guess by this post, we paid!!!! So in efforts to feel justified in spending $8 to win a fantasy football game against my husband, I am writing a post from the Atlanta airport. Here are a few pics to whet your appitite for future posts. Eryn's Birthday, Sarah's wedding, and our Vacation are coming soon!
These are the niece and nephews....first one is of Daisy at a water fountain:)
