Spring is Blossoming

[singlepic id=426 w=320 h=240 float=center]

Ahhh, what a really nice weekend so far. With the weather getting warmer and warmer, everybody’s been itching to get outside again. Last night we had our first BBQ of the year. With a couple of friends, we grilled up some yummy hotdogs, jumbo shrimp, and pineapples and ate right out on the deck under clear blue skys and a setting sun. After a couple drinks and some delicious food, it turned out to be a beautiful way to start the weekend.

Snowmageddon Fun

Snowmageddon 2010 - 51

They’ve been calling it Snowmageddon 2010 when we got over 30 inches of snow. This is just weeks after Snowpocalypse 2009, which gave us 24″ of snow. Over the past seven weeks, we’ve gotten over 50″ of snow! What does all this mean? Being snowed in has a natural tendency for activities such as sleep, eating, and SHOVELING!
When we’re not doing these things, we’re romping around in the snow. Check out the vids and some pics. Enjoy.

Happy New Year

Hello world and happy 2010!

Now that the new year has started, I will begin this year looking backwards. Backwards to my nice little vacation at the end of last year and remembering the nice weather that was there — instead of the scheiß weather that we are living in at the moment. So the story is we went to visit Tim in Miami for new years and just bummed around florida with nothing to do but eat and sleep. So if you want to travel back in time, check out the gallery below.

Cheers!

Wedding Update

Wow! The time is rapidly approaching! We’re scrambling around getting everything finalized and organized. We realize that because we were unable to book the reception immediately following the ceremony, many of you, especially those who are from far away may be wondering what to wear and what to do in between ceremony and the reception.

After the ceremony, Lincoln’s parents house is open to guests for snacks, drinks, and socializing. This is an open invitation for you to come socialize and grab a bite to eat and/or change into something more comfortable if you wish to bring along an extra set of clothes. There will be some nice vietnamese food for you to snack on.

Generally, here is what to expect as the program for the day:

1:30 – 2:30 Wedding Ceremony at St. Louis Parish (Directions)
2:30 – 3:00 Photo-Op activity
3:00 – 6:30 Invitation to Lincoln’s Parents for snacks and socializing, otherwise see you at 7:30 (Directions)
7:30 – 11:30 Reception at Martin’s West (Directions)

For those of you who wish to book a hotel close to the reception, immediately adjacent to the reception hall is Best Western.

Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about directions or times or anything! We are so excited that everyone is coming and are really looking forward to partying with you Saturday night!

See you all soon!!!

Nicola worked super hard to put together this highlight video and now you can see the results above. The video consists of footage taken by Mats and photos taken by Louisa and my camera. Everything was mashed together into a highlights video using iMovie. The video is about 50 minutes long and about 200 MB will be streamed to your computer during the process of viewing this video. So definitely give it some time to load or "buffer" before sitting down and watching. It definitely helps to have a nice internet connection! If you love this video and want a high quality download or a DVD please let us know and we can make that happen. Thanks Nicola for such a kickass video and thanks everyone again for being such a cool crowd and making such a nice evening. Even today I can't stop thinking about that wonderful day.

…this was the poem that was read by Marc. It was a poem that was written by the late Charlie Chaplin on his 70th birthday on April 16, 1959. This poem was read in its german translation during the wedding and I wanted to post it on this site in the original english version. It’s a beautiful poem and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Extremely awesomes

dsc_5130

We just got the photos from our official wedding photographer Louisa and I love them! They are exactly what I hoped for and more. Now we just have to make a selection out of the 500 pictures and create a nice slideshow. We will probably do that on the plane tomorrow, so that we have something to show when we get back to the USA. We will also post them here on our webpage in the wedding section as soon as possible. When I look at these photos, I still feel like on my wedding day and hope that this feeling never ends. It really turned out as the perfect wedding, I had the best time of my life and everybody had so much fun.
