Last weekend

We had a really fabulous weekend last.  We flew to Kansas City, Missouri where we met up with members of both sides of our family and had Payton's baptism on Friday.  Then the next few days were spent with all the events surrounding my twin sister's wedding.  It was so wonderful to spend time with family and share some special events in each other's lives.  The baptism was small but that's how Payton prefers it.  Both sets of grandparents were there and took part in the program, which was nice.

My side of the family- my sister, Kim, and her soon-to-be-husband, Todd,
with his sons, my parents, and my brother Matt with wife, Crystal, and 3 boys.  

The Allred side- Adrian's parents and aunt Connie.   

The two special girls- Payton and the blushing bride.  

We had so much fun celebrating Kim and Todd's new life together- from the rehearsal dinner Friday night, to the pampering at the salon for hair and nails, to the beautiful wedding and fun reception.  And we're sure they are having a grand time right now at the beautiful Marriott in Aruba.  

SO happy for the newlyweds!  As we (used to) say in Texas- it's been a long time a-comin'.

Damon's new little heart throb that he met at the reception.  She's a little bit younger than him but he just thought she was darling and wanted to be near her!
