Goodbye Dinner for the Carringtons

Monday night we had a dinner for Meg, Paul and Zoey with the family.  It is sad to see them move so far away, but FL will be a fun place to visit!  We love you Carringtons and will miss you so much!
 We gave Zoey a couple of new books to read on the trip.  She enjoyed having Grandpa read them to her.

 Grandma Betty, Monk and Janette came over to say goodbye.  
 Also, Uncle Dan and Aunt Diane.

Kristine, Dave and Victoria came to say goodbye, too, and gave her a Syracuse Orange Man.

Her Uncles Devon and Connor had Zoey laughing.  She will sure miss them and they Her!

Nicki even got some snuggle time in with Victoria.

Michael and Liz's Wedding

 Saturday night Marc and I with Dave and Kristine drove to Dallas, PA, to attend young Mike and Liz' wedding.  The ceremony was held in the 3rd floor of a huge horse barn.  The main floor was huge and was wonderfully decorated with sunflowers white lights where the reception was held.  The bride and groom both wanted a barn reception and found this wonderful place to their liking.  So...here they are kissing at the end of the ceremony.

The very happy couple!

It was nice having Dave and Kristine ride down with us and sit next to us!

Paulina, Michael, Charlotte and Julia all looked fabulous!
 Mother and Son dance.
                                 The cake was very pretty with fall flowers on it and tasted yummy.                                                                                   They were way too nice to each other when feeding each other a bite of cake!

 Marc and I had a great time talking to lots of old friends and even danced quite a few dances since it was all country music specially requested by the bride and groom.  First day of marriage for Mike and Liz and 40 years for Marc and I.  How did the time fly by so fast?
                                   Siblings three.  They are like our own kids and we love them alot!

 Liz and her dad...dance.
 Father of the groom and one of our best friends...Mike Swavola with his niece.

  It was a fun reception and a great time to see old friends who are like family to us!
Congratulations Michael and Liz and a lifetime of happiness to come!

Jude Randall Bready was blessed in Dallas Sunday October 9th 2011

Three sets of Breadys and us Clays attended Jude's beautiful Blessing.

Happy Parents Cami and Mike with baby Jude.  My baby has her own baby now!

The Family has Arrived!

Grandpa Marc couldn't wait to get his hands on little Jude.....
 as was Grandma Gladys.......
 and Grandpa Randy......
 and Aunt Becky.  Jude didn't get put down for two days straight!  I'm sure he loved every minute of it!
 These cute boy cousins are Alex and David.
 Gladys brought some crafts to do with the kids.  Cousin Katie is making a necklace.
 It was so nice to have Marc in Dallas after being here for 2 1/2 weeks without him.  I didn't get to hold Jude all weekend, but I didn't mind.  I have been watching him grow and develop from a preemie who simply ate and slept to one who now would nuzzle his mom and make loud noises when hungry.  He stays awake for an hour at a time and looks around and follows voices.  Just like a two week old full term baby.  It is amazing!

 Cousin Whitney woke up from her nap and it didn't matter to her that Marc got her out of her crib.  So cute!
 We had lots to eat, lots to talk about and lots of fun just being together.
 Cami pumped so the family could feed Jude while they were here.  They were so glad Gladys and Randy flew down from Utah and Mike's brother Nate and Becky and kids drove 4 hours to get here from San Antonio!

Halloween Baby

Jude looked so cute in his Halloween Onsie!

Notice the hand out of his sleeve.  Wrapped tight in his swaddler he couldn't pull his sleeve up by his face but he got his hand up there anyway.  So cute!
