My sister is ENGAGED!!

My big sister, Meredith just got engaged last night! Well, technically they were engaged a while ago and are well on their way to planning the wedding. It was a sudden engagement and wedding seeing as I only got married less than a month ago, but we are all so excited for her! We love her fiance, he is an amazing and sweet guy and they are a perfect match. The wedding will take place in Austin where they live on January 2nd at The Mansion on Judges' Hill. It is a beautiful location! She got her ring last night because it had to be custom made and it is gorgeous! I can't wait to see it tonight when she comes in town for her bridal shower tomorrow. So much to do, so little time! Congratulations Meredith and Randall! We love you!!
Me and Mer and Mer's gorgeous bling!

Thanksgiving 2008!!

So this year was the first year that Chad went to Thanksgiving with me in Tyler. My moms side of the family gets together there every thanksgiving and we usually only see that side of the family once a year. Although several of them did come to my wedding which was so sweet of them! But alot of them were meeting Chad for the first time. Chad and my cousin Matt really hit it off talking about hunting and all other boy stuff. We had a really good time visiting with family and eating lots of yummy food!!

This was from the year before, we didn't end up
taking a group picture this year
