The wedding

Oh, how I've missed my blogging buddies! But I had a blast in NM. I miss it already. If my family had been there, it would have been hard to make me leave!

Of course, I had to have my Chili Works. Sadly, my spicy tongue has decayed from lack of use, and I now have a gringo tongue. Those were some hot burritos! I took for granted that I'd always be used to spicy. I am in mourning.

In a little story of excitement, this one should freak you out a little. My daddy and I were working on cleaning out the ivy from the window wells on the side of their house. Well my dad, being the daddy he is, threw a worm on my leg. I'm not one to freak out about a little worm, so I wasn't upset, but I looked down at the worm and saw a black widow also on my leg. I have never been so grateful to have a worm thrown on me. If he hadn't, who knows how long that black widow would have crawled on me. *shudder* I don't mind worms, but spiders is a whole other ball game. GAG!

I have some pictures from the wedding. It was beautiful. I'm so grateful I got to go! If you want to hear the crazy wedding story, you'll have to read the captions. :o)

Gerrick and Jeremy cricket mud wrestling. Don't ask

I thought there were only 3 Stooges??

Another nasty spider. Thankfully this one never touched me.

It was the size of a quarter with legs included. NASTY!

How my brothers avoid the dance floor. There were also cards involved.
After the were announced, someone (NOT MY BROTHERS!) set off fireworks. Well, it fell over and started shooting into the crowd. A few people ended up with singed hair, but no one was seriously hurt. Though, we do have this lovely memento of the event. Only at Tylerr's wedding would this happen! LOL! Thankfully there were plenty of firemen around to save the day.
