the highlight of 2011...

by far the best thing to happen to us this year (and really in our lifetimes!) was the birth of our first baby, decker august jowett...he was born on november 8 at 11:28pm and we could not be more in love with this precious guy!

when we weren't installing weddings, we spent most of the summer months preparing for his arrival - building a deck outside his nursery, painting the room, putting together furniture, choosing artwork for the walls, washing all his new clothes, installing the car seat, assembling the stroller, etc. everything we did and every wedding we completed brought us that much closer to the debut of our little man!

here is a little video i put together of the months leading up to his arrival plus his actual birth day :) it was the most intense, surreal and AMAZING experience i could ever imagine...brian and i were both a ball of emotions and tears when we finally saw his face for the first time...i hope this video gives you a glimpse into the anticipation and joy we felt for our baby boy!


thank you for all the love and support you have shown us this past year...2012 is going to bring a lot of "firsts" to our family and we cannot wait...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
