Wedding Season

This summer, Wesley wasn't the only one to join the Clement family. Justin's brother Travis married Anna on July 1st, and his sister Natalie married Jayden on August 5th. It made for a very busy, love-filled summer!

It also makes me feel old. We celebrated 7 years of marriage in May! The time has gone by so fast.

In addition to being a bridesmaid for Natalie, and helping plan bridal showers, I was asked to make a wedding cheesecake for the Booth wedding. It was a big undertaking, especially with a 3.5 year old and a 3 month old to take care of! But it turned out delicious, and almost as beautiful as I wanted it to be. ;) I only wish more people had been able to enjoy tasting it. They wanted 3 tiers, which wouldn't be quite enough for everyone, so they bought Costco cheesecake to supplement. Unfortunately by some misunderstanding, the Costco cake was served first, so not many guests were able to sample my cheesecake. But everyone got dessert (that wanted it), and the bride was happy, which is the most important thing. And the groom was very happy to eat the leftover cheesecake.

It was definitely stressful to have 2 siblings get married when I had a newborn, but, with only 1 sibling left unmarried, I know I won't have to do that again! And it is such a blessing to have two new siblings in the family. The love makes the craziness worth it.

Jeremy had a blast playing in the old Model T with his "crazy boys", as he calls them: Justin's cousins, Tanner and Matthew
The bow tie was still a bit big on him
Happy couple! 
Anna is already a wonderful aunt. We love her!
