More things Lily says: While I was getting ready for work Monday morning, she was running around the house pushing her Disney Princess grocery cart. She passes by me in the bathroom and says "Peace Out Mom". Seriously, my two year old just told me to Peace Out.

Wedding Fun

The happy couple!

Last month, we spent a week in Saint Louis visiting with my parents, grandparents, sister and future husband and preparing for their wedding. Kim and Nick were married on October 17th. It was a busy week, but a fun week. We drove out there on Friday October 9th. The next day was Kim and Nick, bachelorette and bachelor parties. James hung out with Nick and friends and I went with Kim and the other bridesmaids to Harrah's for dinner and some gambling. The next day was the rehearsal and dinner. The rehearsal went smoothly and it was warm and sunny (outdoor wedding). The dinner was FABULOUS. If you are ever in StL, you have to try Bill Gianino's. It was so good. And Lily actually ate, a lot! The following week was filled with running errands, finalizing plans, picking up tablecloths and napkins, getting hair cut, eyebrows waxed and fingers manicured. We did sneak in a family activity, on Monday James, Lily and I went to the St Louis Science Center and spent the afternoon playing. The rest of the week it was rainy and cold, so we didn't attempt a visit to the Zoo and Grants Farm is only open on the weekends in the fall. We'll get both of those in next summer. The wedding was beautiful. Kim looked gorgeous and Lily was darling in her little flower girl dress. It was however, COLD. Very very cold. We only spent about an hour outside total, but that was enough for all of us. It did not rain, so the 12 umbrellas that we bought the previous week, were returned! Here are a few pictures. These are ones that I took, I didn't hardly get any at the wedding but James got a lot! I'll let him upload those.
