Wedding Prep Week

We've simply been enjoying family time, taking care of little details we need to do before "the wedding," and catching up with friends as we can flex it in. 

How good is God for Steve and Debbie to be in the same HOTEL we are in before they move to DC? We all went out to dinner last night...but Debbie and I were able to catch breakfast together this a.m. too. AND due to a "glitch" in their moving schedule they will be here for the wedding after all. Their two sons are the only groomsmen who aren't family. 

Yesterday all my kids met with their matches from a dear family friends...Ashely came as well....so all the kids are sure to have had a bit of time with their buds....and Deja and I got to catch up face to face as well. That was a power play date at it's best. 

Today.....Michael went to the base and caught up with one of his group commanders who is now the wing commander at Goodfellow. He also checked the "lemon lot" for a car. 

I did laundry. 

Josiah took Arielle and Bre over to visit with Shelby and her Mother as they had their nails done. She's going to be a gorgeous bride. 

We took the boys to try on their suits. It's been a bit of a challenge to coordinate measurements from Japan and sure enough - several alterations are needed. I love the suits. These guys are going to look spiffy when they are all ready to go! 

I warned them if they didn't come out, I was coming in...and then I did. ::snort:: 

Zander really wants to wear a fedora - but he isn't going to. ::grin:: 

Nolan looked sharp - except the sleeves were way too short. 

We went to see Despicable Me 2 while we waited for my parents to arrive....and then we waited in their hotel room to surprise them.

Tomorrow Krista arrives.....

One day and a wake up - getting very excited about "the wedding."

Choosing Joy!
