THE WEDDING PARTY
Brion & Carrie with the kiddo's: Michael, Drew [ring bearers] & Ava [flower girl]
Drew & Michael were quite opposite, so they were very cute together. Michael just stood in amazement with his big eyes as Drew ran circles around & around. But in the end they both did a fabulous job!
Ava stood in between the boys and held their hands down the aisle. It worked out really well and she did such a great job. She also looked so beautiful! She is Brion's second cousin.
The bodice on her dress is probably the most beautiful I have seen!
Brion was so great with Drew! Everytime Drew saw Brion, he put out both hands and said, "Hold me!!!" In the craziness of everything going on, Brion almost always "gave in" to his request.

John, Stephen & Scott
In college, Stephen was fondly nicknamed Superman. So we told Drew that he was going to meet "Superman" at the wedding. Just this morning Drew brought me a little superman toy and said, "Look, Mommy, it's Stephen!"
Mr. & Mrs. Rauba
Carrie's parents are no strangers to us. We were able to stay at their house last year when we came to visit Brion and Carrie for New Years Eve. Mrs. Rauba was like Drew's extended Grandma. I also knew them from years ago. They went to the church I grew up in and I actually babysat for Carrie & Laura (her younger sister) when they were like 4 & 2 years old. It was so funny when Brion first told us who he was dating! I couldn't believe it!!
Just before the ceremony...family pep talk for Drew!
