New Year's Eve in Pittsburgh, PA

Saturday morning, bright and early, Bekah, Bobby and I drove BACK to Columbus where Bobby spent most of the day helping my brother-in-law do some tasks around the house they moved in to right after Thanksgiving. Saturday night we relaxed, ate subs, and watched The Greatest Game Ever Played with my parents.

On Sunday, after lunch with my dad at Fazoli's, we put Bekah in my dad's car and headed towards Pittsburgh for the wedding of our good friends Matt and Amy. Bekah proceeded to sleep all the way home and until 4:30 pm, after my mom got home from work. My dad didn't have to even change a diaper!!

We got to our hotel in Pittsburgh around 4 pm. Relaxed for a few hours, and then headed for the 7 pm wedding. It was a beautiful, God honoring wedding. Matt and Amy, at the beginning of the ceremony, recited parts of Psalms 34 together. It was so wonderful to be there with them to share their special day!!

We headed back to the hotel around 10 pm, relaxed a bit until after the ball dropped, and then went to bed. We didn't even have sparkling grape juice to toast. Pittsburgh was all out!!! We got up at 6:20 am, got ready, and headed back to Columbus by around 10:15 am. We played a few rounds of Barnyard Rummy and ate P.F. Chang's for lunch (yummy, but they again messed up our order), and then headed out to come home around 2:30 pm.

It has been a whirlwind weekend, but all-in-all, a wonderful time with family and friends.

I must go do a few things; school tomorrow!!! Ahhh!!!

WHat a beautiful cake! Our wedding was three days after Christmas, but we didn't really go with a Christmasy theme. We had a lot of burgundy though. I think it was the perfect time to get married. We had our whole families out for the holidays.

Hope you had a Happy New Year!
