Barn Party 2006

I knew something was up...the insane amount of phone calls, a bridal shower invitation and a partial phone message about a shower. Still with all the clues we didn't expect what was waiting for us around the corner.
This Saturday September 23rd, we headed out for a drive, Jason thinking he was going to drop me off at a wedding showe and then head off hunting with his brother. We drove the back roads for a bit and then pulled into Jason's uncle Harold's farm. We walked down the driveway to the back of the barn and as we turned the corner we heard a loud 'surprise' and saw the face of friends and family waiting for us in the barn. The barn was decorated and set up for a huge bride/groom barn shower. We spent the afternoon playing games and mingling. There were SO many people there. Aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, parents and grandparents. We were so blessed to have so many people showing their support for our marriage.
We shared a HUGE spread of food with our guests and enjoyed opening presents and playing newlywed type games.
The evening ended with our guest giving small speaches about us and stories to share with other guests. It was such a special time for us and it touched us to the core.
Thank you to Tim and Judy who planned this and to all who helped with planning, preparation, and clean up for the special event. We especially want to thank Jon and Marney, Jan and Kevin, Charlie and Rhonda, Harold and Martha, Tim and Mary, my parents and anyone else who was involved. We are so grateful. We love you!

The next day we took a drive with Jonathan and Marney to Aubry Falls. We enjoyed a picnic and hike despite the freezing temperature. The falls were beautiful and made a beautiful backdrop to the 150 pictures we took (on our camera alone). Thanks Jon and Marn...great double date:)

Well I know it's a short blog but I will post soon when I get some pictures ready of both days.
Thanks again to those who helped put on the coolest shower EVER!!!!
We love you
Jason and Erin

44 days and counting

Well I guess it's about time for an update.
Things are going well.

HAhaha ok just kidding. Seriously though things are going great. Wedding plans are falling into place and more things are getting checked off the list. and while I have your attention if you have not sent in your RSVP card you better get on it (or face the wrath of Erin)
And while I am talking about weddings I wanna a say a huge thank you to Jeannette who made are beautiful invitations. Jeannette is great if anyone else is looking for someone to do things like that just let me know and I can hook you up. I recommend her 100%. She's great.
So like I said plans are falling into place nicely. We've started our marriage counselling and we are really enjoying that. We have homework which we both enjoy doing.

I really do want to write more but I have no energy and I just finished doing emailing and other computer things...quite frankly the last thing I want to see is a computer screen.
So things are good. Wedding is coming soon, we're excited, get your RSVPs in and we love you
Jason and Erin
