Classy Erica Fleeman

This past weekend, my husband and I traveled to Dodge City, Kansas
for one of our close friend's weddings.
Here is Erica with us at the Rehearsal.
She is the definition of class in my book!!
And, man, Richard, you are one lucky guy!

This is the site of the guest book, with
the cutest Christmas ornaments.
As long as I have known Erica, she has had
a true love for Christmas!

These were the darling ornaments hanging over the guest table.
Her colors were red and lime green,
and I loved them!

This was the Christmas tree at the gift table.
Don't you LOVE the tree skirt?

The groom's last name "Fleeman",
and now the bride's last name.
The cute couple, as I am sneaking in between
the photographers pictures.
These were monogrammed cookies
prepared for her band students.

I absolutely loved how everything was monogrammed!


I had to take a picture of the cups!
This is the first time I have ever seen
Styrofoam monogrammed.

Here is Shaun and Erica at the wedding.
Shaun did a fabulous job leading
the worship during the ceremony.
You sure can't go wrong when you start
out on the right foot!

Matron of honor, and the ring the bridesmaids were given to wear!
Isn't that awesome??
Beautiful wedding party!!
Don't you love the red dresses?

This is Erica's bouquet!!
Simply breathtaking!

One of my favorite things!!!
The monogrammed runner!!!
So beautiful.

This was the picture I took of the wedding cake
right as I walked into the reception hall.

This was the groom's cake.
Cute banner hanging in reception.

Christmas tree with ornaments for
the guests to take home.

I LOVED the wreaths!!
These were made by the high school floral class.
They did such an amazing job!!

Centerpieces on the reception tables.
Gotta love the red Gerbers.

All of a sudden, from across the room I heard
"there it goes".....
and the wedding cake tipped over!
(unfortunately BEFORE the bride and groom
had arrived at the reception)

I just couldn't believe it!
I saw tears, I heard laughter, and many people scrambling
to fix the cake.

Oh boy.

The finished product.
It actually looks pretty good!!
And turned out great in the pictures.

Again, more centerpieces!

This was the main floral display on the
buffet table!

A place for gifts!

The cookie I took with me!!

And, nothing better to end the reception than to see
sweet Santa and his blue eyes!!
Thank you Richard and Erica for allowing
us to be part of your special day.

Thanks CJ

My long time friend, CJ has an amazing talent!
She recently took these pictures of the
boys at a local park.

They were not the easiest to keep focused, but
she knew how to capture the images!

Turner was my little ham!

And I am still trying to decide which ones to
use on our Christmas card this year.
Hope you enjoy the samples!
Check out her blog for more!

Latest Project

Oh, how I love this garland!
I am determined to give this as a gift this year ...
however, I am not as successful as I thought
I would be.
(still working on the roundness of the balls)
If it tells you anything, Shaun said "If you want to just buy the
garland I think that's okay"
Pictures to come of end product.

Fabric Baskets

I've long admired the fabric baskets from Pink Penguin... and this week I started actually making them. Rather than follow the actual tutorial, I'm selecting 12 different fabrics and cutting 2 squares of each fabric (one for the front and one for the back) to really show off what different fabric scraps could be inside. The plan is for each basket to hold that color's scraps. I love showcasing my favorite fabrics together like this!

Wasn't this Yesterday???

I have been going down memory lane recently.
I am in the middle of a project of reorganizing all of my photos!
And of course, making new albums and scrapbooks.
I remember Shaun holding Turner and Parker at this age like it was yesterday.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Turner.
He is about one week old in this photo.

This is a memory I will not forget.
Parker was so proud to be able to hold his 3 mo old brother.

I did use to worry he would be a little 'too rough' on Turner.

But now...they are Best Friends!

First Day of School Picts 2010!~
Turner has developed what he now calls
his "loop-dee-loop"...and the curl in the front of his
forehead has to be 'just right' for school!

Parker's 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. McBride, who we LOVE!

The boys in the back yard!
And Turner in his new
cowboy boots!
(He wears them with everything!)

One word...goofballs!

And here is sweet Turner in his preschool class with his favorite person...
Miss Carly, his teacher.
(he wants to bring her chocolates for V-day!)

Moral of the blog,
Man they grow fast!
