Happy Wedding Week

Happy Wedding week to my cousin Nick and my dear friend Lindsey.  So excited for their special day but so excited for what their future holds.  Two great people that deserve nothing but years and years of happiness. Bryan and I are so fortunate to have them in our lives.  I always love the family members you can call "friends" and friends that you call "family"  Nick and Lindsey, Bryan and I wish you the best as each day passes.  Laugh often (that will be easy with Nick around) never stay mad at each other (just a waste of y'alls time) and always say I LOVE YOU.

Can't wait to bust a move at the reception!

We Love You

Growin up

So this is my little boy looking so big.  He had dentist appointment this morning and it only confirmed that he is growing up, no cavaties, 2 loose teeth, and molars coming in.  I enroll him in Kinderarten on Thursday.  I am so excited for all the new beginnings but also a little sad because it is going by so fast:  Here is a little bit about Bayler right now, he is wearing size small in boys (6-7), wears a size 1 in men shoes, growing his hair out, loving all kinds of food, he has practice almost every night so he pretty much is starving and eats everything on his plate (plus 2nds) once he gets home.  Going to bed and staying in his bed all night.  Still has the best imagination.  Helps around the house, always has good reports from school, best friends are Wesley and Steeler but has tons of great friends.  Still loves his chocolate milk and blankets in the morning, is a mommas boy but loves acting like his daddy, it is a hit or miss on being a good big brother or should I say nice brother, depends if he finds it funny to pester her or not!  Love you Bayler

Here is Miss Braxton, I am a little younger in this pic but she saw this and said, "Braxton?" so I thought it confirms we look alike.  She too is my growing machine, she is wearing size 2T to 3T and size 8 in shoes.  She loves picking out her own clothes and shoes.  She was my child who was a good eater but she currently is excersising her right to say yucky or yummy (we are working on this) she too is getting her 2 year molars in.  She falls asleep in her bed and currently comes to our room around 3 or 4am every morning saying she is scared.   She loves walking up to Bayler's school and seeing him and all of his friends, she will start next year.  It is also a hit or miss on her being a "good sister"  she likes to pick and choose when she will be nice, mean, cry, or kick Bayler.  We are working on being kind in the Weaver House.  All of us! lol She loves the color purple, butterflies, and high heels.  We are working on the transistion from bottle/sippy cup to big girl cups.  She wins this battle when it comes to drinking her milk.  It is funny how she goes from mommas baby to big girl in a second.  Love you Braxton

Lindsey's Night of Fun

 On Saturday we rented out The Manor in Banner and made it a night to remember.  Celebrating Lindsey's last couple days being a single woman.  We had so much fun with so many fun ladies
 Nicole and Lindsey (soon to be sister in laws)
 All the ladies who helped make the night a perfect one
 Let the fun begin
 Can't have a party without our mommas
 Before present time
 Such a fun game, everyone brought a pair of panties for Lindsey that best described their personalities, Lindsey would guess and if she was wrong, in came the jello shots!!!!
In less than 2 weeks she will officially be Mrs. Lindsey Nicole King

Gone to Soon

Early this week we received awful news, that Bryan's uncle Ray had passed away.  He was so special to Bryan and his charm won me over.  He loved his boys and Brett and Bryan.  They spent so many weekend hanging out at Matt and Sean's house.  Ray loved watching the boys play sports, OSU football, cooking, to name a few.  He will be missed dearly.  His boys and grandsons will carry on the Ennis name and I know they will do so with honor.  Ray we will miss you everyday and you will never be forgotten.
We love you

Bayler's new toy

Well as much as I would love to say Bayler was SO EXCITED for his new toy I think Bryan was way more EXCITED. He has been looking for Bayler a 4 wheeler for a while now, and glad we held out because we got this one for a steal. So it was double exciting for Bryan, now he is trying to convince me he needs one too! Let's hope we can find one for a good price!Bayler and Braxton adventuring before they decided to ride/drive the 4 wheeler, of course Miss B just got to ride and she would yell, "faster, faster"
Sibling love
Bryan giving Bay some tips before he took off all by himself
Just to note, we have not purchased a proper helmet yet, but we will this week! Please don't judge
He could go as fast as he wanted, wherever he wanted but because he has a little bit of my personality he circled around Bryan and I and made sure he didn't go too fast! He is my timid child, while my daughter on the other hand didn't think it went fast enough! I am in trouble.
Hope everyone stayed safe this weekend, the weather had me a nervous wreck! Sending prayers to everyone affected by the horrible storms.

Our weekend

On Friday April 6th 2012 our family lost an amazing woman. My grandmother Jeannie Chester. She was my dad's mom. She had 7 children and 16 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She was a woman of faith and finished her life asking only one thing of her loved ones "Listen to the Words" God's word that is. It would be an understatement to say she talked the talk and walked the walk. She is loved and admired by so many. She truly has a special spot in everyone's hearts. She was the type of person that found anyway to talk or relate to you and she would bring God's word into whatever situation good or bad you were in. My heart breaks for my daddy, who just recently lost my Papa (his dad) and then now losing his mom and also leading her memorial service. He did so with an open heart, caring words, and hopefully opening many people's hearts to our Lord. Each day will get easier for everyone but she will never be forgotten and as my dad said, "we will honor her for the rest of our days"
Easter Sunday
