These weddings are from last week (The Mathesons and The Stones)


The invitation on the right is Danicas H.S. boyfriend. He was a thoughtful,one-woman kind of guy and she's a lucky girl. The couple on the left will be the Teimans (Blys daughter)

Andrea just got married last week and she was a princess (now a rich princess, way to marry for money, jk) The couple in the black and white are Danicas H.S. buddy Heidi and her fiance.



This is what it looks like today. We are rarely getting these cool overcast days so I thought I would capture it. You can hardly see "Guttery Mountain"


Perfect day to be sick (if there is one) and Tessa spent the night throwing up. This is the cozy spot Breea made for her to watch TV while she's sick.

Whoa, that is a lot of freaking invitations! This Foulger girl, wouldn't happen to be related to a Laura Foulger would she? That is quite a list you have there. I have some time today if you need help whipping some of those off your list! Just let me know...

dani said...

Aww that picture of Tessa is SAD! That is a crazy long list. Were coming over tonight to help, if i don't have stupid jury duty...blah. I find out at 11 so pray that I don't.
yeah what is up with everyone getting married right now??

Kristal said...

Ok, so glad that we got invited to Josh and Claudia's wedding since him and jase worked together this year...SHEESH! No one on the Hatch side invites us to ANYTHING!!!! From now on, I'm an adams! ok ok, nevermind, I'm a mulder...dang, nevermind, ok, I'm a hatch, but sheesh. Ok, and Robbie's is cute, and I LOVE that black and white one on the bottom with the girl with the beautiful dark hair and cute shirt.

Kristin said...

Oh poor Tessa, That is a familiar seen to us. We've all had the flu too. Not fun, I hope nobody else gets it!

Audycamp said...

wow vonda you're so good to do a reception there @ this crazy holiday time. My advice:(like it matters) is to only do 1/2 of your list! (Whew..feels better already huh!?) Cuz most people won't notice your stones aren't glued in or whatever it said!:)

EEK said...

I don't see Erica & Zack or Chad & Rachel. Let's have a double ceremony in Holbrook at Petroglyph Park and the reception at (no not the Stake Center-YIKES) the bowling alley. BYODC (bring you own diet coke) and no smoking PLEASE!

Vonda said...

Glad you said that EEK, I get in trouble if I mention the M word to my neice or nephew. Audra, thanks for taking that off my list cuz who cares if someone steps on a stone thats not glued on? They'll only fall and break a hip and sue us. JK, I think the things that will fall off the list will be haircut, investment, car and topiarys though.

WHITMAN FAMILY: said...

Can Tessa come to the park with us tomorrow? I will call you in the morning! Maybe not having a 3 year old sidekick will help with your list! Maddie would love it and so would I!

Alvin & Jessica Pease said...

oaky thanks for bugging me about not posting anything new! ive just been lazy about the whole thing! neway i cant believe how many wedding invitations you have! that would be a little overwhelming... oh and i totally know that Adam guy. i hungout with him & all the
Show Low boys for a long time until i meet alvin. he drove the nicest Hummer!!! not that you needed to know that....
i love how green your grass is. i just want to roll around on it....

Vonda said...

Come roll on the grass anytime - it would probably be funner if you brought your hubby though.

Crystal said...

I love the bowl. Poor thing.

Shanen said...

That's a long list with only a few days left and a husband that hadn't been home at night for the past few days. That is leaving a lot of that list for you to do. I hope everyone is feeling better and lots is getting accomplished. Thanks for the post on my blog. =)
