I wasn't sure if Shirelle wanted to be the first to post pics of the big day, but she gave me the go ahead last night so here they are!
The wedding day was awesome! As I know everyone is aware from my numerous reminders, the day started bright and early at 5:15 am. We got Allie and Detmer up and they both decided to cry the whole time we were getting them ready (not morning people!). I was a bit nervous about how the rest of the day would go. By the time we were in the car and on the way things were looking up. We got to the temple at the same time as cousins, so that really helped. We got all the kids settled with Gayla in the kids room and left her with the chaos while we went to enjoy the peace and quiet. The ceremony was amazing. We did some pictures afterward and it had stopped raining (it was when we got there) but it was still pretty chilly. We had about an hour and half between temple and reception with which Allie and Detmer enjoyed some sleep before we had to get them ready. They woke up happy and excited and I must say they looked so precious in their new clothes. We got to the reception center early for more pictures. About a half hour before the reception was due to start the clouds went away and the sun came out and it turned out to be the most beautiful day ever! Everything went perfectly! It was awesome!!! I'm so glad everything went so well we couldn't have asked for a better day. We all came home and GOODNIGHT! Even though it was only about four in the afternoon. We slept for a little bit and got up about six. Allie and Detmer spent the whole week trying to catch up on sleep! We found them both asleep at seperate times in their little chairs Grandpa Greg got them. So sweet!

Tonight Giff and Shirelle had their wedding dinner celebration. It was a big party, it's just a bummer that Dave has to work tomorrow since we felt like it was Friday!
