Howard/McDaniel Wedding

December 27, 2015 - 

Only twenty five minutes until the ceremony begins!

Quite the "legit" multi-camera setup.

I got a ringside seat - pun intended

The newly wedded Mr. And Mrs. Jason Howard

(bookended by the two Andrews)

Photos of the photographer getting photos...

And these are obviously not posed shots of these two...

Bride's family

Grandparents looking on

The two families

As were the bread and cheeses on the table of hors d'oeuvre.

As if cheesecake wasn't already appetizing in and of itself 
- how about this close-up shot.

The throng watching them cut the cake and eagerly awaiting 
whether these two would play nice or not.

Smiles during the first dance

"Witnessing" the marriage

The bride (literally) on the threshold of her new life as a wife.

Seeing off the bride and groom with plenty of shouting, bubbles, and a collective "awww...yeah..." (Studio C)

Tonight we were able get [almost] all of the family together under one roof for dinner.
Here is a picture with all (but one) of the grandkids - looking in about 5 different directions. :D

Christmas Light Walk

January 3, 2016 - This afternoon we met with friends for some post-Christmas cheer by visiting the Anheuser-Busch Christmas Light Walk at the brewery.

That is quite the wreath!

He's bundled up and ready to hit the walk.

Th first beer sampling station is dead ahead!
lagers, ales, hot chocolate, cider, limearitas  and strawberitas

Gotham City in the Christmas time... if you've ever wondered what that'd look like.

"City sidewalks" lit by the glow of these decorated trees.
