Almost there!

We are almost there... to the crawling stage! AHH! 
I can not believe it is already that time! She is growing up to fast and doing so many new things!

We wave bye bye, clap our hands, nod yes to everything and have successfully said both mommy and daddy!

sweet big blue eyes!

look at me mom!

Rocking back and fourth

and we all fall down!

Pretty soon having the floor clean of everything, plugs over the outlets, locks on the door and vacuum everyday- will be Brent and I's life! :)

Happy St. Pattys day!

St. Patrick's day Addison and I decided to do something fun for dinner for Dad.
We made my favorite- breakfast for dinner and of course we had to add our touch :)

Green waffles!! 

Have a great spring break!!

It was now Honeymoon time! WOOHOO!
Brent and I headed to St. Louis Sunday after our wedding. We had so much fun on our little get away. 
It was the perfect place to spend time together.

Every 5 miles there was a sign for this candy store- let me tell you.. It was a BIG let down! haha
really all this was- was a huge antique store
outside of hotel - all glass!
Our room had a perfect view of  St. Louis on the 18th floor!

Brents favorite part!

Our gift and note from the hotel- made of all chocolate!
The Tv even said welcome Mr. Penzo

I hear wedding bells!!

This week went by so fast.
Everyday my mom and I had something new to do! Hobby lobby became our new home away from home!
We had so much fun planning. I could not have done it with out her!

Friday March 4
Rehearsal time!! YAY!
Our rehearsal went absolutely perfect. Of course I cried the entire time ( happy tears )! It was so sweet of our family to come up and spend our special weekend with us! 

As I was walking down the aisle with my dad it hit me. I had done really good with keeping it together and not crying very much but it became real at that moment. I was so happy to start my life as Brents wife but also scared- To know you are on your own is scarey feeling... but that is were my trust in God comes in and to know he will be there with us every step of the way makes it so much better. As my dad "pretend" gave me away that night we both cried- just talking about it brings tears to my eyes. It was such a special moment! 

Our pastor- Chris Taylor did a excellent job. He made us feel so comfortable.God could not have blessed us with a  better person to marry us!

After the rehearsal dinner was at our church. Brents grandmother cooked home made itialian for everyone... and let me tell you it was a HIT! Everyone loved it. The room was set up so cute - I will post pictures soon!
It is such a special memory!
Thank you so much Nona and Elizabeth for making the dinner more then we expected! We had so much fun!

What made that night 10x better was Addison on the way home sad Mama!!  That was one of the best moments of my life being a parent. It just melted my heart!

March 5, 2011

I have waited for this day since I was little. I slept pretty good the night before and Addison slept great so that was a huge blessing. That moring I got up had a few sweet tears with my mom and we headed of to decorate! The Inn turned out absoulty beautiful! My bridesmaids met us up there and then we headed to get our hair done at 11. We had so much fun getting pampered!

After we headed to the church to get ready. I can not wait to post the pictures!

Brent and I did a thing called the 1st look. This is were he saw me before the ceremony but we had a special time alone together. I will NEVER forget that. As Brents eyes were filled with tears I tapped him on his shoulder to see me for the 1st time- that moment was so sweet to see his face.

After taking all the family pictures we were ready to get started! AHH!
As my aunt sang and grandparents, parents and bridesmaids walked down the aisle everything was so real. I was so excited ! As Addison was pulled down the aisle tears came down my face. She did so good and looked absolutely perfect! Then it was our big moment. My aunt began to sing Holy Holy Holy and my dad walked me down the aisle. I will never forget that moment and the look on Brent's face. My dad gave me a hug and a kiss and told Brent to take care of his little girl and it was time to marry the man of my dreams!!

Our service was so sweet! It really felt like just Brent and I were the only ones in the room while we were saying our vows! After our "I DO'S" we kissed and it was time for some fun 
.....the reception where we danced the night away!

I could not of had a more perfect wedding! It was way more than I had ever expected!! 

Thank you so much to everyone that made it so speical!
A special thanks to my parents- My day was absolutely wonderful. It would have never happened with out your help. I hope that I can raise Addison the way you raised me with love support and most importantly as Godly parents! I love you Mom and Dad more than you will ever know!

Post pictures of the wedding soon!! :)
