Dylan Clinton Jones!!

So, I'm a new aunt as of last night!! My brother's wife Kelly gave birth to a baby boy -- Dylan Clinton Jones (the baby formally known as Guiseppe). He was 8 lbs 1 oz, 21 inches long, and born around 11 pm EST last night!! I couldn't be more thrilled for Cam and Kelly!!

Jason and I are going to the hospital in Atlanta to see them tonight -- so we'll bring back more information and pictures!! Yay for being an aunt (again)!! This is Cam's first baby... so we're very excited!! He is healthy, cute and everyone is doing well! Thanks for all your prayers and love!

Wedding Craziness!!

Wow, I'm so bad with this blog thing. ;-) Surely, I've got to get better, right?? :-)

So, we're officially a month away from the wedding and all kinds of craziness... I'm definitely ready for the whole thing to be over with! I'd say right now our biggest problems (things that aren't coming together at the last minute) all involve music. We don't have a DJ for the wedding -- ours bailed at the last minute. :-/ And we're trying to get one of the youth at Buford to do it... but that isn't panning out quite as well as one would have hoped. So, yeah... no alcohol and no DJ and in the middle of the day... doesn't sound like our wedding's going to be very much fun!! We're working on it though...

And the other problem we're having with music involves the ceremony music. We really wanted our friend JD to play the keyboard because he's AMAZING, but of course he can't come and we found out at the last minute. :-/ So, back to the drawing board there. We need to find some good stuff to download on iTunes and find a way to play it at an outdoor wedding in the mountains!! I have a small karaoke machine... so maybe that will be loud enough. :-/ Jason's going to play around with it!

Other than that, I think things are good. We still haven't been getting RSVP's quite as quickly as we'd like. We have about 60-70 RSVPs of the 400 potential people attending! But a lot of people I think I'll have to contact or assume in the end. I'm sure that's how every wedding is!! Thankfully I'm just ordering food from Sam's -- and they only need a week's notice. I'd still like to know before then though. ;-) But we do have all the decorations, dresses, etc in order... so that's good!

Gotta love the wedding madness! I know Jason's ready for it to be over too... if for no other reason that to not have to hear me or his mom talk about it anymore!! I don't think he's stressed out about the "wedding" or any wedding details -- but I think me being stressed out stresses him out! He's a "fixer." :-) We talked about that in our Bible Study this week. I LOVE our Bible Study -- It's called Staying in Love. Perfect while we're planning a wedding and getting married! Listen to it online (along with other great messages):

Please be praying for Jason and I as we go through this Joyful -- but Stressful time in our lives!!
