7 Years in the Making

We've been married for seven years and have never printed our wedding photos, which is mildly embarrassing. Until now, our "wedding album" has consisted of a large white envelope stuffed with negatives.

Last week my mother-in-law Daneille flew out to meet Cal. Not only did she masterfully/graciously/ cheerfully execute ALL grandchild duties (and then some), she also surprised us by having the negatives scanned into digital images.

The very next day, Oprah announced that her viewers could create a free photo book on Snapfish.com. Voila! Our first wedding album. I feel like newlywed.

So, seven years after getting married, I write my FINAL two thank yous -


Daneille & Oprah Winfrey


Katie and Jeff said...

Oh my gosh, gorgeous, beautiful, stunning! This seems like yesterday! How has it been 7 years and 3 kids already! What a sweet gesture by Daneille!

Chris and Erin said...

Your pictures look VERY good! You two look exactly the same, it's kind of weird! Where does Jack think he's going on that bike during your wedding pictures? Did he really think he'd sneak away on a bike with a camera on him snapping pictures? :) I really can't believe it has been 7 (and 1/2) years! Time flies!

Todd said...

Holy Crap ... Jack had hair!!!!!

Brandy said...

WOW! Katie you look absolutely gorgeous!! That was such a nice thing your mother-in-law did you for guys. I LOVE the pictures :)

Susan said...

Some day you will have to blog the story of your wedding dress!

Jane said...

Love it! Do you think Danielle would do the same for me?

Kristin said...

I love the bike, I love your hair, I love the black and white.... mas por favor??

Dawn said...

It took me I think 5 years to order them from our photographer. I would like to thank Oprah for 2 books (2 different email addresses), and I'll just stop there.

Your book looks great - I also love the cute baby photo of Calvin.

Jeannie said...

What a treat! The pictures look beautiful. We also have no digital images of our wedding. :( Brides today are so lucky!

I have never regret not watching oprah until this moment.

And your wedding looks like a rich and famous moment--truly beautiful and I agree with Jeannie that it is a real treat to see these.

Emmers said...

Aw, I love it!!! You two look so cute. I loved the newly-wed days. (I love the days now but they're not the same.)

Leslie said...

I can't begin to tell you how much I'm loving your big Texas hair! Gorgeous photos!

Lorie said...

They are beautiful! And how great that you got them in a photo book!

We have been married almost 11 and I haven't printed mine, so you are doing GREAT!

And it is 7 1/2 years in the making. I will always remember your anniversary because that night I went into labor!

What a classy couple! I'm thrilled for you to have REAL wedding pictures and you haven't changed a bit. You look like a pair of movie stars!

Alison said...

How beautiful!!!!

What a great gift!

P.S. Oprah did NOT get me anything for my wedding. I'm jealous!
