Cody Gets Married - Part 2

Cody and Alisa scheduled their Sealing (marriage) for 3:00 in the afternoon. That meant we didn't have to get up early on the wedding day! On Monday we had a mini-blizzard going on in Nauvoo, so Cody prayed for clearer weather. His prayers were answered and we all met around noon to take family pictures at the Temple.

The littlest ones waited patiently at the Visitors Center for the rest of the family to arrive.

Look this way!

Lots of toys for the kids to play with while waiting.

My beautiful granddaughters Adrianna (L) and Emily (R) with my lovely niece Charlotte in the middle.

and... my beautiful daughters!

Or I could say my beautiful Mamas!!

Getting read to go out in the cold.

The Handsome Father of the Groom.

Shiloh and Jason took this opportunity to get a family portrait.

Ahhhh.... that's more like it Micah!

The sun was shining and it was beautiful, but it was very, very cold outside!

Everyone huddled up to stay warm in the 25ยบ+ weather. 

Mr. Clancy is staying warm.

Yes, we have some redheads in the Cunningham clan too! Preston,

Jonas and Miss Kitty. ( I don't have a close-up of her in these photos.)

G.R. was a having too much fun to sit still...

Almost everyone looking at the camera!

Alisa waits to become part of the Cunningham Family!

Bringing back the run away!

One of the best professional photographers ever. We love you Jim Garber and your sweet wife Linda!


Trying to get a photo of Cody and Alisa with all the nieces and nephews was no small feat -
When my youngest granddaughter saw Alisa she said "I want to sit by Cinderella!"


I have no words to describe the feeling that the following pictures bring me as a mother. Oh how proud I am of my children and how their love for one another fills me with joy!

Right after this picture a few were taken of the bride and groom with the parents and then it was time for the wedding.
Many of these photos were taken by Sean Walker using my camera. What a great job he did.
Unfortunately at this point my camera batteries died, but I was able to snag some pictures off of Facebook from Emily and Kathy Zaun.


Oh happy Day!!

Cody Gets Married - Part 1

The Cunningham and Walker Families converged on Nauvoo, Illinois on Sunday Nov. 23rd. Darryl and I had rented a log cabin Lodge that would sleep 17! Cami and Jesse and their families stayed in a neighboring 2 story log cabin that slept 10. What a great place for our reunion! 

On Monday night the girls hosted a "Sisters" Bridal shower / party for Alisa. Oh what fun they had!

Jesse lounging around....

Making their new sister welcome!

The guest of honor with her aunt and cousin.

Something fun...

Be afraid Alisa.... be very afraid!

Hahahaha!!!! Just Kidding! 

Oooh.... Victoria's Secret! That's gonna be nice!

Lots of goodies for the Newlyweds in the hat box!

She wasn't quite sure what to do with her box of surprises. Go ahead, ring that bell!

I would like to say that after the shower we went right home and went to sleep, but the truth is my girls kept Alisa up until after 1:00 a.m. Good thing the wedding wasn't until Tuesday afternoon!

Check back in a couple of days for Part 2 -
Wedding Day!!
