Mr. and Mrs. James Gordon Dusty

Yes, We did get married. On February 8, 2008 at 5:45 PM at the church in Shallotte, NC. It was a beautiful ceremony and the Bishop did a great job. I am sorry that we couldn't have everyone be a part of it but hopefully you will enjoy seeing the pictures.This is one of our engagement pictures that we had taken up in Washington when we were there for Christmas. I really love how we look in this picture.

Getting ready...

Michelle, started my hair and Melissa finished it when she arrived.

We were to be married at 5:30 and this was at 5:25 so we the girls were running a little late but I guess that was okay to make Jim wait for me just a little longer.

Jim is proving that at the Church he really did have the ring and was ready to go at one time. Waiting for me. So if the ring was lost we knew that it had to be close by.

Finally all ready to go and Jim is waiting up front for me.

The actual ceremony. . .
Brian and I ready to walk down the isle. . .Great wisdom given to us by Bishop Gore. . .
The first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. Dusty. . .

The Cake table All we had was cake, punch , mints, nuts... The cake isn't exactly what I wanted it looks like a porcupine. But it was so good.

Cutting of the Cake. . . He was very nice and so was I we didn't smash it at all. . .

It was a great day. . . We are planning a open house here in MA the third week of March. I know that most of you can't come. But I will have more pictures from that. We will be posting them also.

Cruise with the Girls

I know that y'all have been waiting for pictures of the cruise and the wedding so I am now blogging them.

This is us in line to get on the ship. If you go to Tara's, Lisa's blog you will see more pictures of us on the cruise. So I will just put on a few that they do not have. The line was long and Jo was so dizzy due to an ear infection that she could hardly stand. We all are so happy to be this close to getting on the ship. We had so much fun I think that we should do a trip so that every girl in the family can go. Maybe to New York City or Vegas.
This is one of the restaurants on the ship. We had alot of fun trying out all of the places to get food. It was an Italian place. Not our favorite although.

We loved to dance each night we went to a night club and danced the night away. This night was 50's and 60's . Each of us had our moves on the floor.

At some ports of call you dock and others you have to take a ferry boat. This is us ready for a fun day at the beach on the ferry to Grand Cayman. The day was beautiful and hot. We are all looking great. A little red from the day before in Mexico.

Check out the line up on Tara's blog.

The last evening on the ship the sunset was so nice that we have a picture taken on the back of the boat. I really had a great time with all who went and look forward to having another "Girl's Trip" when more of the girls can come.

My New Home

This is my new home. It is divided into three parts. We will live in the section that has the fireplace. Maybe in the future we will take over the other two sections but for now they are rented out. I love the area and the snow I didn't know how much I missed the snow until I was up there. There is a pond and a creek on the property. Along with a lot of big trees with a tire swing.

This is the creek.

This the view from the house to the pond.

This is Jim in our living room.
