Keri & Daniel's Reception

Last night, after a long day of Stake Women's Conference"ering", we headed to Las Vegas for the reception of Keri and Daniel. They were married a week ago in Utah and having their open house for family and friends down this way. Keri is the daughter of my sister, Debbie, and has been a close cousin to Michaela. We have spent many wonderful times with this family through the years, as their kids are almost the same age as our kids. It was great to see everybody and especially to see the couple so happy and in love!
The magnet board I made for the bride and groom to keep their lives organized. She told me she was hoping I had made one for her. Who knew?!
My sister, Debbie and her husband, Chris, the parents of the bride.

Kurtis and Kylene. These two have been very close to Tibi and Landon since they were all born. They get together as often as they can. We ended up taking these two home with us to spend the night and go to church with us. Mom and dad can come and get them on their way back home to Utah.

It was great to see everyone and just visit. We ended up staying for the whole thing and doing a lot of laughing and talking, AND eating. Yum!
My wonderful big brother, Chris, and his wife, Dianna. They drove all the way from Carlsbad to come to the reception. The worse thing is that they turned around and went back after the reception, which got them home at around 3 in the morning. Thank goodness for 1 o'clock church! They stow-awayed Michaela to go spend a week with Marc.
An "all girl" shot...aren't they all beautiful?!
Michaela and Keri have always been close...they are TWO of the "FIVE grandkids" that were born in the same year, way back in 1988.

I'm glad they had such a great turn out! I was bummed we couldn't make it out to see everyone. If had known that Chris and Dianna were coming I may have made more of an effort! Thanks for sharing the pics!

I'm so glad you got to see Chris and Dianna. They are the best. In the "all girls" picture, you can definitely tell which two are Willards and which two are Shunns!! ha ha Even Michaela and Tibi look something alike.
