Never Met a Stranger

We had a very fun, whirl-wind trip to Atlanta. It was so good to see all of our family again! Most importantly, it was fun to see Chris and Shanda get married. They have waited a long time for this day and they were both glowing the whole night long. It was a beautiful night to celebrate such an special day!

AnnaClaire is quite the party girl. She was working off of no nap and was dancing all night long until she finally zonked out on the way back to the hotel... at 11:30! She had a ball. She loved seeing everyone and called the bride "Princess." She sat so nicely through the wedding and during the reception, she danced and danced and danced. She was dancing with EVERYONE. All of the bridesmaids were dancing with her, the bride and groom, her cousins, her aunts and uncles, etc. Half the people, she did not even know. She had the best time and was just smiling and dancing all night. She went to bed asking for MORE wedding! She LOVED the cake, LOVED running around hugging everyone, LOVED taking pictures with the disposable cameras, LOVED the music, and LOVED throwing flowers at the couple as they left. She met quite a few little friends, too!

This morning, we had a brunch with all of the groom's side of the family. It was delicious and we enjoyed getting to visit with everyone once again before we left. I think it's safe to say that AnnaClaire thinks big boy cousins are just the greatest! And of course their wifes and girlfriends, too.

I have a BUNCH of pictures to add, but Blogger is being incredibly slow, so those are for another day. For now, here's my new favorite picture of Miss AC last, taken last night!

11 DAYS!
