Wuve, Tru Wuve

Last Tuesday, May 25th, my little brother, David, got married. They flew to Hawaii and had the service on the beach. This is his new family. His wife, Christi and her two boys, Tyler and Chase.
Last night my mom had a family dinner and then open house for them. It was so much fun. Of course, dinner was great (one thing we Potter's do well is cook and eat). And it was nice to meet Christi's family, her dad, brother and sister-in-law. They are wonderful and I'm sure were a little overwhelmed with our crazy family running around.
We are thrilled to have Christi in our family. David has never seemed happier in his whole life, at least I've never seen him smile so much since she's been around. And we think she's great, kind and fun. I think she even gets our sense of humor and I'm excited to get to call her sister now.

Preschool Graduation

Today was a bitter-sweet moment. Nathan graduated from preschool and is already registered to start kindergarten in August. I'm so happy he is growing up. He had an amazing year at preschool and learned so much.

This is his teacher, Mrs.York. She is the most incredible person. And the best teacher. She taught Nathan all his letters, capitol and lower case, and also the sounds they make. He knows how to count to 100 and all his colors and shapes. They sang songs about the months of the year and the days of the week. And they also learned their phone numbers, address and their full birthday. I'm hoping he doesn't end up board next year.

It's hard to believe that this is my baby. (Funny too that he doesn't look anything like me.) Oh what will I do next year when he is in school every day? I'm sure I can think of a few (hundred) things.

Red Lipstick

While I was in California this weekend, working at the Revlon Run, we received "Love That Red" lipstick. Now, I have never worn red lipstick in my life. And when I brought it to my moms on Mother's Day I told everyone it was up for grabs. But apparently, no one in my family wears red lipstick. So I dared them all to wear it with me (nothing like a little peer pressure). We made up all the cute girl cousins and headed outside for a picture.

Here we decided to "pucker up". What a great and crazy family I belong too. And I love it! (After the picture, some of the girls went in and gave their dads big kisses on the cheek. They weren't so thrilled since the lipstick stains. But we sure enjoyed it.)
