Wes & Kristen Marry.........Again

Catchy title huh? Their first wedding, in the local courthouse, was May 8, 2008. They were getting ready to move to Tracy, CA where my son had just taken a new job. Even though it was "just a courthouse", it was really a nice ceremony. My husband was missing from this ceremony. He was visiting with his Mom in Arkansas, a trip we had planned for many months for this date. We walked down to the San Luis Obispo Mission and took some pictures to memorialize the day.

Weston & Kristen - May 8, 2008

Tim & Nancy Martin, Kristen & Wes Weems and Me

They were thrown a lovely surprise Bridal Shower Luncheon by Kristen's co-workers.

Even provided a crown and veil to commemorate the day.

And a WONDERFUL cake that was "to die" for.

When they moved back to our area in January of 2009, they chose a date and began planning for another wedding. After months of planning, buying, and coordinating the BIG day finally arrived. It was truly a beautiful wedding! Because they were legally married, they had one of Wes' good friends, Rich Padgett, "marry" them.

Hi Rich! Isn't he cute? He created the most beautiful ceremony, did a fabulous job of speaking and organizing and helping the day run smoothly. Thanks Rich!!

Next, we have the Best Man, Sean Hall. Sean has been a co-worker and good friend of Wes' for several years. Sean is on the right in the picture below.

These pictures were from the rehearsal so no big dress up yet. Sean stood up for Wes, executed the transferring of The Ring and gave a really special toast at the dinner. He and his wife, Michelle are such a sweet couple with 3 ADORABLE children. Good mentors for Kristen & Wes.

See? Aren't they SO cute together? Thank you Sean & Michelle for being a part of the wedding!

The Best men were family members.

It's getting more and more exciting isn't it???

Ok, Bride's side...... Without further ado, we have the Maid of Honor, Kristen's sister, Dana.

I know, BEAUTIFUL.... and sorry guys, TAKEN.

This is Bridesmaid, Allison. She is one of Kristens' really good friends.

Single (for now...), and I KNOW, beautiful. Now you KNOW why the wedding was so beautiful! Lots and LOTS of beautiful people!

And here is Bridesmaid, Kim. Kim is Kristens' cousin (On the left...see?? I'm telling you....BEAUTIFUL, and Single) I LOVE Kristens' family. They are so nice.

And there is a family trait....really! Let's see if you can guess what....

Kristens' Grandma, Charlotte. (Sorry I only got the back of your head, Charlotte.)

Kristens' Aunt April....

Aunt Betty....hmmm, are you guessing what the family trait is yet?

Kristens' Mom, Nancy. Hello Nancy! Have I told you just how pretty I thought you looked at the wedding? You DID!!

Kristen with a "practice" updo. Surely by now you have guessed it!! It's that LOVELY red hair. I am SO hoping I have little red haired grandbabies!!! I know, I've gotten off the subject just a bit and they WERE just married.....

What you say? Married and I haven't even shown any pictures of the Happy Couple? You're right! I was saving the best for last. So without further ado, here is the.....


GOTCHA! I know, you were expecting the Bride. Not quite yet....

And the....

Grooms parents. Hey! We clean up pretty good don't we? Now you know where Wes got all his good looks!

Wow! Check out the CAKE!!! Beautiful and it really tasted good!

Ok, I think I've tortured you enough. I HAVE saved the best for last. Kristen, you were a beautiful Bride! I am so happy and lucky to have you in my family. Ok, she's not beautiful.........SHE'S GORGEOUS!!!

Aren't these good of Kristen and her Dad, Tim?

Look at that look of adoration, happy, sad, proud....this is his oldest daughter marrying. Tears at my heart with the beauty.

And just a quick little snap I took while the "real" photographer was organizing himself. I can't wait to see HIS pictures!

Which reminds me... Nancy & Tim, we should go out one of these days and do some family pictures. Your family, you guys alone. It would be fun!

There you have it. SOME, and I stress some of the wedding pictures. It was a beautiful day. The DJ played the BEST music and had everyone dancing by the end of the evening. The caterer made delicious appetizers and dinner. If I ate like that everyday, I would be fatter than I am!! Everything ran so smoothly thanks to the wedding coordinator, Beverly.

Kristen & Wes... we wish you many, MANY years of happiness!!

(Oh, and by the you think you could work on getting me some red haired grandchildren???)

Coffee T. Rice House

Isn't this a beautiful Victorian Style home? You can't see all of it because of the shrubbery and trailer park at the base of the house. It made me curious about the history of the house so I looked it up. Here is what I found. This is the historical information I found written  HERE . Coffee T. Rice House Oceano, California History and Description: Coffee T. Rice was a wealthy financier, with enterprises throughout the State, who migrated from Ohio to San Francisco. When a railroad was surveyed through this area he envisioned an industrial center here and acquired various properties close to the right of way. He introduced celery production to the area. Rice started construction on his home in 1885 using the same craftsmen that were working on the Pitkin House. The house originally had 20 rooms and was painted yellow. Surrounded by well-kept grounds with various trees and a sundial, the house was approached by an oval driveway and a stone-pillared entryway. The grounds also in

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and

Norwegian Pancakes (Norska Pannekaken)

Every culture has its pancake and this is the Norwegian version, a very light, crepe-like pancake that goes with just about anything. These "pancakes" are light and eggy and go with both sweet and savory fillings. When my chickens start up laying eggs in the Spring, we LOVE to make these pancakes, freezing the excess for another day. Yes, they freeze and thaw perfectly! Most people have the simple ingredients on their shelves and in their refrigerators SO LET'S GO! Original Recipe Can Be Found on the Outside Oslo Website   Here . Norska Pannekaken 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon Scandinavian vanilla sugar* 3 eggs 1 1/2 cups whole milk 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for pan Mix all ingredients except butter in a medium-sized bowl using a whisk or fork until the batter is smooth and you have no lumps.
