joni handing out napkins! thanks for all your hard work, joni!
todd, far left, farms this area and graciously let us use the family barn. he had at least 5 farm hands out here a couple days before getting everything in tip top shape. they moved hay bales, helped sweep, and were so great to us! todd's wife is leslie, and his parents are butch and saundra. little emily is todd's daughter. she is so cute! we are so thankful for their help and glad they came out to celebrate with us!
virgil, the great, pictured with nick. i am so thankful for both of them. virgil brought up a cargo van packed full of western themed decorations! whiskey barrels, arrangements in boots, split rail fencing, marlboro man cut outs, grasses in pots, ropes, crates, string lights, everything! it was so fun! my mom loved all the little details. she said they made the party, so thank you so much joni and virgil! ya'll are the best!
thanks nick for the lighting and manual labor you put in. sorry for the congestion you got from blowing out the barn and all the hay! you're a trooper and i love you!
