New Year's Eve 2011

This weekend was a very special weekend in our family.  We added many new family memberswhen my mom married Alan Andrews on New Year's Eve.  It was truly a wonderful night filled with many blessings.

Mom, Alan, Kelli, Bruce, and me.
They got married at Music Road Hotel in Pigeon Forge, and the hotel did a WONDERFUL job setting up the hall and with the catering.  It was beautiful.

The delicious carrot cake made by Susie's Pretty Petals.

This chocolate cake was scrumptious.

Cody sang beautifully.

My beautiful sissy and I.
I don't have many pictures of thre ceremony.  John was sitting to the side of the stage and he actually used the camera to video rather than take pictures (I still need to look at the video and see if I can do anything with it.)

But, the best part was the party!  We still know how to throw one.

Ringing in the new year

Happy 2012!


The aftermath!

We had the best DJ ever.  He not only ran sound for the ceremony, but he kept the party moving til after one in the morning!  His name is Brian, that's all I remember, but if you need a DJ I can get you the info.

And while I said the best part was the party, I must reflect, and take back that statement.  The best part is seeing my mom happy.  She has met someone who has brought life back to her.

And while he could never take the place of my daddy, he sure is good to ALL of us, we love him, and I truly believe my dad is smiling down on us all today.
