Mr. & Mrs. Brad Moring

So my sister is now officially a married woman.  John, the boys, and I travelled back to Texas last weekend to be there for the main event.  We really enjoyed getting to spend time with all of our extended family who came from near and far to celebrate with Brad and Christina.

If you want to see the professional photos, you can go to the photographer’s website and check them out.  He took over 1,100 pictures!  There are two folders.  “Brad & Christina” is where you can see all the photos, and “Brad & Christina album” is a small album of some of the photos.

Here are some pics we took while there. 

The boys have discovered the fun of making silly faces.

Pool time with the cousins.  Micah, Seth, Madison, and Caleb.


The day of the wedding, Brad took John to see Kyle Field, home of the Aggies.  They weren’t able to get on the field, so these are the only pictures John took.

Here are just a couple pictures of the wedding party and my family.

And Micah made some friends at the reception.  Here they are shooting someone.



Yep, that’s a pig cake.  Red velvet pig cake.  There’s a pig story.  You’ll have to ask Brad about it sometime.  And Christina loves chocolate cake, so she wanted her wedding cake to have chocolate frosting.  I did an unofficial taste test of both cakes, and I think the wedding cake tasted better than the groom’s cake.



Here’s my friend Kathy and me.


And here’s my boy making another silly face.


The first dance.  Her bustle came undone, so Brad ended up just hiking up her dress.  He had it so far pulled up that you could see her petticoat, but it made for easier dancing.


As the night wore on, I noticed that every time I looked, the boys had less and less clothing on.  They started out the day in vests and ties and dress shirts.  But they just kept stripping.  And they are both dancing machines.  They really enjoyed dancing with Mama and Daddy and each other.

We had a good time.  We headed back to my parent’s house on Sunday, with a stop at the Austin airport just to see if we could make an earlier flight.  We weren’t able to get on, so we headed home to try again on Monday.

We made our flights on Monday, but by the time we drove home, it was almost 10:00 pm, which was midnight in our minds since we had adjusted to Texas time.  It was SOOOOO good to get into bed and go to sleep. 

So, long story short, congratulations go out to the newlyweds.  They are in Ireland right now enjoying their honeymoon.  I can’t wait to see them again!
