Cottrell Family Reunion

Technically it was called the Cottrell Family Dinner, but in all honesty it was basically a reunion.  And it was fun!  This was Preston's mom's side of the family from Grandma Cottrell on down.  So, basically just the close cousins and families.  I was asked to be the photographer and that was fun.  A little nerve racking at first, but I enjoyed it in the end.  Here's some of the fun!

60th Anniversary!!

 Can you imagine being married for 60 years???  I can't even imagine being alive for 60 years :)  But, my sweet Grammy and Grandpa Stevens are coming up on their 60th wedding anniversary, so we decided to celebrate as a family!  There were a lot of fun "festivities" but it was definitely on standard Steven's time because we like to linger and take our time with things. So, some of the pictures ended up being in the dark and the kids got to bed quite late.  But, what better excuse than celebrating with family?  And we have a great family!  I ended up taking a lot of pictures just because I could and I like it.  But, my "assignment" was to make another slideshow of the family in the last 5 years.  I made one for their 55th, so this was just to update on all the births, weddings, graduations, etc. in the family.  It was so fun!  Hopefully I can get it to load on here. . .  At least there are definitely pictures!
