Just wanted to post an update! The last three months have flown by, can’t believe how big Kenley is getting, she was 13 lbs this week! She is doing great and we are getting some sleep most nights. 🙂 Last weekend, my middle sister Jaclyn got married. It was a beautiful day all around. She looked gorgeous! Dustin and I were both in the wedding, so thankfully Dustin’s parents came with us to assist with Kenley. Here are some pictures of our little family in the park before the wedding!
The wedding was on the BB RiverBoats on the Ohio River. The ceremony was on the top of the boat and then the reception on the top floor. The weather was perfect, the only interference was a boater who honked his horn multiple times and the whole boat shouted during the ceremony. Can’t wait to see the photographer’s pictures of the ceremony. Here are a few from the reception.
Those our some pictures from the day that were taken with our camera. We can’t wait to see the photographer’s shots, I need an updated sister photo in my family room and some updated family photos (we all looked pretty good I must say!) Here is a little part of my speech, I’m so proud of Jaclyn and so honored to be part of this special day!
“…it’s a joy to watch my little sister marry her best friend today. My “Amber” baby is all grown up! For those of you that don’t know, when mom was pregnant with Jaclyn I had been in the nursery at church where there was a baby Amber. I kept telling them I wanted an Amber baby and low and behold they named her Jaclyn Amber! We have some great memories growing up from playing travel agents in the back of the conversion van on those what seemed like never ending drives to the beach with the brochures found at every restaurant stop! Or once we got there making seashell museums and trying to charge the family admission.
Getting to cheer together in High School was also fun (probably more for me than you since you were always lil Hall & I’m not sure you liked that)! But also in high school I watched you grow to know Jesus and accept him as your personal Lord and savior. I was a proud big sister then and now. Jaclyn you never cease to amaze me with your determination and drive, you always get done what you set your mind to. Even if it’s different than our family is used to, you were never afraid to set your own path. I love your passion for your work and serving the community around you. I also love watching you serve Brookelyn and Gregory, it’s very apparent how much you already love them.
Sean, I am excited to finally have a brother! It has been a joy to watch your relationship with Jaclyn grow over the last few years. I am thankful that you also seek Christ in your decisions, and I pray that you will continue to seek him now as the head of your household.
My prayer for both of you is the same as Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians, one of my favorite scriptures verses. Found in Chapter Ephesians 3 vs 16-19.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
I pray that God will bless your marriage abundantly as your household serves him and seeks him daily.”
