Today was another day packed as full as I believe is humanly possible! These four arrived.....I believe they had been up well over 24 hours by the time they arrived. They drove to Dallas late Wed night and left early Thursday a.m. to arrive here this afternoon.
|Guess which one shares the family clowndom with Mom?|
|Gma T stopped over to help|
|We put Lorri to work too _ she was thrilled I found my memory card|
Krista came directly from work....and who KNEW she and Michael would become florists today! Way to GO! New skills.....this one may pay off well in future Gherkett weddings. ::snort::
Izaak was busy making waffles for after rehearsal....and it all came together. The boys and Shelby went to Will and Sherri's for a quick shower and rest. The rest of us moved to rehearsal....
Praying for the couple
Trevor (red and blue striped shirt) has been friends of BreAnne and Krista since Master's Commission. He is determined to keep his gaze fixed on the Bride and Groom.
Yes, Cool Beans do follow her. ::snort::
Dakota and Krista
Our Flower Girl
A Bride and Her Father
Rehearsals are so much fun!
Bailey (Trevor's daughter) likes the music selection....Erin is one of BreAnne's great friends. We are so happy they were able to come down for the wedding.
We went to Bible College with Kirk. He and Michael are tag teaming the wedding. Pastor Kirk has been a spiritual father/mentor to Izaak and is the Senior Pastor where BreAnne is the Children's Pastor.
The kids are excited to have their first nephew! Jared enjoyed spending time getting to know Dakota....yep...our first Grand Gherkin! Official, tomorrow!
Not pictured is the family prayer circle after all had gone home. We all circled the new family - Izaak, BreAnne and Dakota and prayed for God's blessings to flow in their family. We took advantage of the moment to get Josiah and Shelby in the circle too - TX was so hectic we'd never prayed for them as an ENTIRE FAMILY when they were THERE.
Shelby has amazing artistic talent. She and BreAnne share a passion for a show called, "Once Upon a Time." She drew this poster for BreAnne. I must remember to check out this show.
Layla - Drew's Dog - loves to play with Gherkins
The older kids stayed up a bit and visited....
Living all of life before the face of God...
