Oh these last beautiful days! So hard to believe that our countdown is nearly at an end.
Bridal showers have been in abundance. So thankful for all the love showered out upon our new sisters-to-be, and so blessed by how good these new sisters are to our men!
Above, with Bryn (Mitchell’s fiancé) at a shower our church ladies threw for her.
Double sister shower for Lina + Cass, hosted by the ladies @ church!
It’s not everyday one gets three new sisters in 24hrs. Definitely something worth smiling about. =)
Quality time down at the creek one early morning. Or so they tell us. We believe them. =)
This is the sign of a true man, and that is one that not only gets flowers for his beautiful fiancé, but also gets them for his sisters. Above is a bouquet that Mitchell got for Allison after a crazy day @ the hotel.
Also, Carson brought Rebecca home from shopping the other day, and she came flying in the house with the sweetest little vase of two roses. “Guys! Look!! My first flowers from a guy!!” =)
Carson was out to pick up roses for his fiancé and got a few for his littlest sister too. Melted her heart!
Of course the other BIG thing these days is the packing and moving happening for six people! Above, Josh + Cass, two weeks ago, moving + arranging their new home-to-be.
Sweet corn! Note that someone had obviously come straight from the painting crew…! Hopefully he can get that scrubbed off before the wedding. =)
When you have three couples getting married in one weekend, and each of those couples run very busy schedules, you simplify and do your marriage counseling in bulk.
Everyone involved was very blessed by this fabulous arrangement + they loved the marriage series they went through. (above was an apparent serious moment, but peals upon peals of laughter could be heard very often from that room as all the couples greatly enjoyed the great sense of humor that came from the speaker)
Mitchell and Bryn got up early (see tired smiles =)) and prepared breakfast for our whole singles class @ church, as a type of “farewell” with it being their last Sunday in that class. Bless their hearts.
The front of Carson + Lina’s new home! It has been a beehive of activity there but it looks like it is going to be ready for them to start moving things in tomorrow. Just in time. =) Praise the Lord!
A very special triple bridal shower, hosted by one of my aunts for the three brides-to-be, and attended by the local relative ladies on the Bontrager side.
What a month it has been! And to think we just got home from tour three weeks ago yesterday! So much has happened for our family, and specifically for our three guys and their girls.
Packing, moving, and painting. Buying of new vehicles and getting of marriage licenses and discussing of 1001 little wedding details. Dinner dates, ice cream dates, and coffee dates. Pretty much any kind of dates. =) Wedding and honeymoon and marriage planning. (if you are interested in seeing a few more recent life pictures of Carson + Josh and their lovely ladies, visit this link here)
Now the week is here, and we have rehearsals happening and the REAL THING coming right up. We would appreciate y’alls prayers, for safety + grace for the couples as they are “in the homeward stretch”, and also for safety for the hundreds of friends + family traveling in for the weekend.
Stay tuned! We have some special posts for the next few days, including reviews on the rehearsals, information on area attractions for those from out-of-town, and the much-anticipated link for the livestream!
