When it Comes to Family Matters...Families Matter

Saturday morning at 6 a.m., I woke up and walked down the street to my Grandma's house, where we are having the wedding reception in two weeks. I was met with this, and the day only progressed from here. I can't believe so many people came to help get things spruced up for a party in honour of Kyle and me...I guess we're loved! We counted over 40 helping hands over the course of three hours. That's a lot of person-power.

My cinematography skills are poor at best, and for that I apologise.

The video is shaky, but its message is steadfast. Family...it matters.

Can't wait to see the finished product in LESS THAN 2 weeks. Hope you're not stressing too much (ya right, huh?).
Oh and by the way, no need for sashes. The girls are covered.

Two weeks! You must be very stressed, excited, and totally sick of wedding preparation!

I am always amazed how family just pulls together and makes it all happen...because they love you.

Well now I feel like I've just been sitting around and letting everyone else do all the work. I most certainly do appreciate all that everyone is doing for us, and I wish I could be there to help out. I sure did find a wonderful family to join!

I know I already saw this video when Clint and I came to visit on Sunday, but it really is touching. I would say that are family, though a bit eccentric at times, is among the best in the world. I always get goosebumps whenever we pull together to make something like this happen. It's amazing!

Lindsey White: I'm so sorry but I'm leaving for Canada tomorrow morning and won't be back home until Monday. I would love to have a CD of all those pictures, though...Perhaps we can connect sometime next week...?

tell adell im offended that that she called me eccntric.she thinks shes cool cause she is educated and can throw vocabulary words around like hot potatoes. she needs to have that baby and stop worrying about the eccentristicistical family and worry about that baby.She is just a big name stealer . ya name stealer. we do pull together though.sometimes we fight to cause we live to close to one another. Maybe thats why you wanted to move to canada so you wouldnt have to be around us. we still love you hope you dont get to cold this winter .i know i wont. goota go ..hail to the queen...
