It's a bedtime tradition that began with Little Nutbrown Hare, and each night we try to outdo the last...I love you to the moon and back...to the beach and back...to the mountians...and one of my favorites, "to Jesus and the angels" and back...We never imagined we would be saying, I love you to Africa and back...it seems like the furthest imaginable place, but yet in God's perfect timing, we plan to go.... to Africa and back!!! And when we get back, we will have another little cheek to kiss goodnight...please keep us in your prayers and enjoy this journey with us!

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Steve Allen Rose!!!
The wedding was absolutely beautiful! The ceremony was held on a cliff overlooking Snow Canyon, with an amazing backdrop! The weather was perfect and Steve Allen and Octavia looked like a fairytale bride and groom...I've posted a few pictures and will add more as I go through them. Emmaline had the privilege of being their flower girl and did great! She felt shy as soon as everyone turned around to look at her, but with a little coaxing started to walk and throw her petals. Lyla was there, standing about half way down the aisle, so I told her to just walk to Lyla and then walk to Uncle Steve...She walked to Lyla and looked so relieved to have made it and just started showing Lyla the petals! I got to join her for the rest of the walk to the front! Emmaline walked down the aisle to an instrumental bluegrass arrangement of "To make you feel my love" and Octavia walked down to the traditional " Bridal Chorus" bluegrass style! The wedding was followed that evening by a beautiful reception at Octavia's parents home. There they had a bluegrass band that provided hours of entertainment! The fairytale day ended with the lighting of 39 floating lanterns drifting into the sky... Congratulations Steve and Octavia!!!
