A Little Photo Shoot

For our wedding, we have the MOST AMAZING photographers ever (The Parsons Photographers, They are a fantastic couple from Kansas City and his sister is in my wedding party; the Great Annie Parsons.

Well, because they're in Kansas City and we're in DFW we are not doing our official "engagement" session until the Thursday before the wedding. Because we wanted some photos of us that weren't self-taken, we had to come up with a solution.

Luckily, we have a good friend, Raissa that has "the eye" for photography and we did a little family picture exchange. She took pictures of Danny and I and I'm taking their family Christmas photo. They have a beautiful baby boy who is the cutest thing ever and I can't wait.

Here are some of the photos from the shoot:

High Chance of Showers

Being engaged is fun. I mean, first of all, you get to plan a wedding to a man you love and can't wait to spend your life with. Second, you get PRESENTS.

I've never been one to shy away from recieving gifts. Maybe it's my love language, I don't know. Regardless, you get LOTS of presents when you are getting married.

This weekend Danny's People in Houston gave us a shower. It was a great opportunity to meet his people, see his childhood home and least importantly (but still fun), receive gifts. They are so generous and wonderful and we had a fabulous time. Oh, and the food was fantastic as well.

Here are some photos from the day:

I am NEVER sad to receive wine.

The label is in French - must have translation.
Danny looking apprehensive after I "pretended" to stab him with our new knife.
What could it be...Crock Pot, set of dishes, That Wii we registered for?
Answer: A set of our china!!
We got the cutest Christmas tree decorated with kitchen utensils. The "skirt" was our placemats, napkins, and kitchen towels.
Danny hanging with the cutest guests of the party...
And with Mr. "Stovehand." Funny, I thought that was someone we were going to hire to cook for us.
This is us in front of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. If you would like to believe that it's ours, that's fine with me. This picture would also look nice on a Christmas card. Since we won't be sending them out, consider this a "Merry Christmas from Sarah and Danny."
