The Perfect Day

I know you all have been waiting for this post for a long time and maybe thought it was never coming, but I just had to find a way to get all the pictures on here! I made a video, and I really hope you all enjoy it(It may take a few seconds after you hit play to get started. There is music to it as well, so you know...turn on your speakers). I will be getting the professional pictures back tomorrow! For the out of town family I think I will have a link to the proofs I can send you. As for the video, it is the snapshots I have collected from you all. Thanks for taking such great pictures!

Nick and I had the perfect wedding. I know that every bride may think that, but for us, it was the perfect day. We were so lucky. The weather was beautiful. All of the leaves were changing and the sun was out. Truly beautiful. We were surrounded by our family and friends. So many people traveled so far to be there with us. It means so much. The ceremony was wonderful. The reception was amazing. Spindletop, the dinner, the cake, it was all just perfect. My husband even danced!

I don't know how to write in words how my parents gave me my absolute perfect perfect day to start the rest of my life with the love of my life. Thank you all for being there with us, for helping to make it the best day of our lives. It wouldn't have been possible with out you all there, laughing, dancing, enjoying with us our perfect day.

Happy Thanksgiving ZPO!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have had an amazing year full of ups and downs, loves and heart aches. It is funny to even think back to a year ago(I worked at UK, our boys were newborns, Candice was about to start her last semester, Missy was thinking about school, Boo and Rhi thought they had a world of time on their National Boards...). I guess there is a lot I could write about how much has happened this year, but I think the most important thing to say is thank God that through all of our life changes, and through day to day life, we have stayed together. Life would be so much harder without you all. You all bring so much joy to my life. Thank you for always being there, for always making time, for knowing it is important to stay close and for not letting the year slip by and wondering why we didn't make the time. I love you all. Thanks for everything!!

A ZPO in November!

Look at me, posting before work and everything! I am really proud. Okay, so I have been using my lunch break to search for a very illusive gift and have therefore not been able to get my posting done. This seemed like a good time!

Well, this month ZPO finally got back on track with our monthly meeting. We have been having meetings each month, they have just been at showers, or bridal luncheons or whatever....not just us alone hanging out like the old days! This past Friday we went back. We all met up at Charings after work for some great Chinese food and even better conversation. It was so wonderful to just hang out! We did miss Candice who had her Praxis exam Saturday morning, so she was up all night studying rather than sitting around, drinking a couple of bottles of wine and catching up. We missed you!!

Since Rhiannon and Liz's birthday are both right around the corner, we turned the ZPO into their birthday party! Boo and I will be out of town for the real birthday and we didn't want to just ignore it (Of course!!). Anyways, they got some really great stuff and it was wonderful. Charing got wonderful deserts including a to die for pumpkin cheese cake...mmmm.

When Charing and I went to pick up the Chinese we drop Morgan off at a birthday wasn't until we pulled up that we found out it was her first boy girl party!! How exciting! Anyways, the entire night was a huge success! We got to see each other, Wes and Carter were perfect, we had birthday presents....I don't think Friday nights get much better! There were pictures taken, which some can be seen over at Liz's site, but I didn't bring my camera because it is still full of Honeymoon pics and I wanted to go ahead and get the new post up! I gotta get in the shower. Happy Almost Turkey Day!!!

Happy First Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday baby boy!! It is hard to believe that a year has already flown by. We all love you so much and are so proud of you. It is amazing how far we have come from this day last year, when there was so much fear for you and your mama. What a big boy you are now. We love you baby. Happy Birthday!!

Cyber Sunday with the WWE all read that title right. Some of the ZPO's took a trip up to Cincinnati in order to give Morgan the best Birthday present EVER! So, you all might not know this, but Morgan is a BIG fan of the WWE. Seeing as how she had a very important birthday back a few weeks ago ( a teenager!) Boo came up with a Brilliant plan to take her to see her hero John Cena LIVE! I have to admit, I was questionable at first, but I knew Morgan would want to go, so I was in!

Whenever someone is going to something like WWE, you have to do it right, I mean, why go if you aren't going to make posters and paint shirts, right? So that is what we did. I think it freaked Charing out at first, but once she saw we had this down to a science, she thought it was pretty great. So our shirts said I love the WWE (with the WWE symbol) and the posters were "Cryme Tyme In Cincinnati" and "John Cena's my Daddy", which was so cute when Morgan held it up! The guys behind us did mention that if John Cena was there Daddy they would hope for better seats, but whatever.

In all honesty our seats were really great! We were all kind of shocked (except Morgan of course) at how many people came to this thing! I mean, it was SOLD OUT! That's right, that many people went out on a Sunday night for some wrestling! IT was on PayPerView, so it's big!

Before the show we ate dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and besides the strange looks we got for all being dressed alike, it was wonderful! The entire night was wonderful. There were some crazy things happening in the ring though....I mean the refs totally cheated and DX lost. It was terrible! Then in the Champion of Champions fight John Cena was about to kick ass when who showed up...KFED!!! That's right! We always knew our paths would cross someday! We were even talking about it at dinner and then there he was to help some other stupid guy cheat and he hit John Cena in the face with his title belt! SHOCKING!!! Stupid Kfed. Looks like there is going to be a match between Kfed and John Cena on new years day....we might have to watch it with know...cuz she likes it...not because I am interested or anything...

Better late than never, right??? Poor little Carter had his birthday taken over by my wedding, but we were not just going to let it slip by without letting him know how much we love him! Last Saturday me, Boo and Rhi decided to throw him a surprise birthday party at our weekly 130 meeting!

Not only was Carter shocked, but we took the entire Kelsey family by surprise when we rolled in with a balloon, gifts and of course a birthday cake...That's right, it was nine in the morning, but that is the best time to take someone off guard!

Boo and I got carter a scooter and a cell phone and Rhi got him a land line...the boy will never have a hard time getting a hold of anybody!

Clearly he loved opening his gifts!

Carter says he has places to go and calls to make...He is now a baby on the go!

After presents we sang and let him blow out his candle (with a little help)

thank he got to destroy some cake!

Carter wants to know (a) why I didn't ask for help in taking our picture and decided the self portrait was the way to go and (b) why in the hell I am making him take a picture when clearly he has new stuff to play with

that's better! Carter says he is very busy and important.

This weekend we also had Wes's 1st birthday party! It was really great. Liz did a post about it over at her site. You can get to it here. We have a ZPO meeting this Friday at Charing's house, then Thanksgiving is the next weekend! Time is flying by! that's it for now, I gotta get back to work. I have a few other posts in storage including our trip to the WWE and wedding pictures, so I will try to get some up soon...but no promises!

Happy Halloween!!!(...just a bit late)

I know this post is a bit late but I was wanting to get a couple of pictures pulled together first. I hope all of the ZPO's (and of course our other faithful readers) had a wonderful Halloween! We actually did not have the annual Halloween party this year due to someone having some huge event the weekend before....sorry! We will get back to it next year for sure!

Just because the ZPO's didn't dress up doesn't mean we don't have some great Halloween pictures to post! Carter wants to know why everyone is looking at him...

But Wes doesn't care as long as he brings in a bunch of candy!

Zack was the only one of the older Kelseys to make it out to trick or treat...

But Carter was pumped about that because he got to share the candy!

Oh yeah...I have one more pic to show you! Boo had her annual Beast and Bug Ball at school the week before Halloween. Once Charing and I found out what she was dressing up as there was no way we weren't breaking out last years costume and stopping by for a picture! Basically the funniest thing I have ever seen!
