Ethan’s Nursery

Still waiting for Ethan! Hayden and I took a trip to spend the day in Lafayette with Mandy, Kelly and Eleni. We checked out Ethan’s nursery, which is completely stocked and ready for his arrival! I took some pictures of all the details, Mandy did such a great job on everything. Hayden had fun messing everything up, poor Ethan will have most of his stuff tested and played with before he arrives! lol We then went over to Kelly’s where Eleni was very anxiously awaiting Hayden’s visit. We had lunch at Johnny Carino’s (YUM) then went shopping at Kohl’s and Target. Poor Hayden was so exhausted and slept most of the way home and was not happy to be woken up once we got there.

Tomorrow Mandy has a regular doctor visit, but she and Chad will talk about and decide if they want to go ahead with an induction, which could happen on Thursday if she decides to go for it! I’m going to be so anxious to find out what they decide, we may be holding little Ethan by Thursday night!!

Amol and Anu’s Wedding

Their wedding was actually almost 3 months ago, 2 weeks after ours, but I had put the pictures on Wade’s computer and just remembered that they were there. Amol and Anu are Indian and had a traditional Indian wedding, which was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen! Wade was one of the groomsmen and had to wear traditional dress. There was so much going on and it literally took up the whole weekend! The first night we attended a party at the bride’s parent’s house which was decorated so beautifully! There was a buffet and later in the night, music and dancing. The groom arrived with a parade of men around him and lots of music and dancing as well. It was so neat! The wedding itself was an all-day event that began with the groom riding in on a horse, surrounded by his family and more music and dancing. Once inside the Hilton, he met the bride’s sisters under an arch and had to give them money until they let him pass. Then the bride and groom’s families exchanged flowered necklaces before the ceremony began, which was about 2 hours long! It was so full of traditions and different rites and rituals, simply amazing! We had to leave after the first part of the ceremony b/c we were leaving early the next morning for our honeymoon, but we were told that the festivities lasted way into the night!

Here are the pics from the events:
