Our God has been like 4 months since I last posted. However, things got crazy here in TN. We moved, my computer was a piece of junk, we didn't have internet till like 2 weeks ago, so, sorry I have been slacking. Today I just wanted to post my favorite song of the moment. I could sing this song in praise ALL DAY LONG! I love it, and I hope you (as if anyone reads this right?) enjoy it as well.

I'm off to my sister's today to then go home for my uncle's wedding. Have  a great weekend.

And Then He Kissed ME!!!!!!!!

So, we've had our wedding pictures for a while now and I have YET to order any! Tonight I finally uploaded them all to Shutterfly so that I could get the ball rolling! My wedding pics are SO good! I love every single one. Ashleigh Peak in Memphis, TN did our whole wedding weekend, and our engagement pics. She is my sister's friend, and the wife to one of her friends from pharmacy school. So, she and her friend Erin made the trek to RC for the fabulous Gossage/Bennett wedding. If anyone needs some family pics/baby pics/wedding pics you can find Ashleigh's website here. I just wanted to show ya'll some of my favorites from the happiest day of my life! :)

I love this picture with our rings! I think it's so cool.

I thought this was a cute idea! So fuN!

This reminds me of an oil painting or something! It's awesome! (nevermind that it was HOT and I was dripping! ha!)

This is when we first saw each other. We did all our picture before the wedding and had our little "moment" together in the field. So special! :)

This is probably one of my favorite pictures! We used it on our Christmas cards this year. I just think it's us. :)

Contrary to popular belief, I AM off the ground! haha. I just had a long dress on!!!

Sis and the girls coming in! I loved their red wagon!

I LOVE this one! Em is fixing my dress! As I was walking down the aisle, someone said that she asked, "Is this the real wedding?" haha! She was perfect!

Adam is clearly ready to be out of these clothes! I think this is sweet!

My sister, me, and my momma at the reception. I think this is such a good pic of us! I love them!

Erin took this one from our upstairs window!
So, that's our wedding in a nutshell! :) I loved each and every picture Ashleigh and Erin took!
Hope you've enjoyed looking into our special day!
PS: We walked down the aisle as newlyweds to the song from the movie Adventures in Babysitting, "And then He Kissed Me" This was my FAVORITE movie growing up! I think me and my sister could, to this day, quote every line in the movie! For your enjoyment:

Oh My Nasty!!!

No. Nothing is gross around here. It's just a simple phrase that used to be in my vocabulary throughout high school (and maybe even sometimes today!) that makes me think of two of my favorite people in the world!!!
I remember a high school youth trip to Spirit Song at King's Island when this phrase was coined and will remain engraved in all of our hearts forever!

This post isn't about gross things, but about love! I love you Buck and Su (and Adam and Luke!) and I am forever grateful that you were placed into my life at one of the most critical times! High school wouldn't have been the same without my Youth Minister and his wife! This past Sunday (Jan 3) marked the last Sunday that Bucky and Susan Walters would see us at Jamestown Christian Church as staff. It was an emotional Sunday but a great one. Looking back at the past 10 years was fun. Everything that Bucky and Susan have done for me and our church has impacted us so much.

Everyone together for Soup and Game Night 2009

This post isn't meant to be sappy and sad. I just wanted to let everyone know how much Buck and Su have meant to me over the past 10 years! Gateway in Mt. Sterling Kentucky will be so blessed to have them there! Love ya'll!!!!

Back to Life...Back to Reality

Who sings this song? I've had it in my head for the past week. Probably because of my jolt back to reality after an AAAAMMMAZING Christmas Break.

December 18th couldn't have come any quicker! It was the last day of school for me in 2009 and the last day of work for Josh for about a week. As soon as we got back to the house we packed our bags and headed east.

Christmas was so much fun! We had a pretty busy schedule for the first bit while we were home and the last week we got to relax. Saturday the 19th was the annual Weekend Warriors Christmas party! I didn't get too many pics, but it was so good to see a lot of our friends we hadn't seen in a while! We really only managed to get pics of the babies there!

Cute little Ethan and me at the party!

Christmas was fabulous! :) We spent Christmas Eve morning with Josh's family. Emily was so funny! She opened up all her presents first and then wanted to open everyone else's cause her's were all gone!
Em in one of her many princess dresses she got!

Then Christmas Eve night we spent with my family. We all went to candlelight service at church then home to open up our annual Christmas PJ's. Christmas morning the girls were so fun! They would have much rather gotten paper than much else for Christmas.

Crazy Carly! So sweet!

Kate vacuuming. She may very well inherit some of her mother's traits! :)

We had such a great time at home! After Christmas not much else happened! It was so good to relax and not have to worry about school and cleaning and laundry! :)

SOOOOOOOO, I think we've neglected our blog JUST a little bit here lately. So sorry, if there's anyone that even reads along with us! :) We have been super busy the entire month of October! The weekend after Jess and Lee's wedding we went back to KY and Josh was in his best friend Ben Tarter's wedding! It was fun, a little hectic, and really cold! But, the wedding turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Here are some pics!

The next weekend was my fall break! We left TN Thursday and got to the big RC that night! Friday night we went with our fabulous friends Daniel and Shaina to LEX for BIG BLUE MADNESS!!! It was so much fun!!!! Since Calipari is getting all the hype this year the night was so exciting! Plus, we got to see John Wall, and the rapper Drake was there! A good night was had by all!!!

And, this same weekend Sis, Cameron, and Kate and Carly were in town for Sis's 10th year HS reunion! The girls are getting SO big and SO hilarious! They learned how to say "B" this weekend when they saw Baxter (who by the way they scream every single time you say his name! Too cute!) and we played outside on Monday when I kept them and Mom was at school. It was so much fun being around them! Sweet girls!

THE NEXT weekend (see, I told ya'll we were busy) we went to LEX for a girl's weekend with all my friends! It was crazy and hectic but so much fun! We made appearances at Keeneland and some fine Kentucky Tailgating and finally went to the game. We played Louisiana Monroe and we won! :) Go CATS!!!

So fun to see all my friends!!

The weekend of Halloween we finally got to spend some time not traveling! It was a great weekend even though I did have to scrub the floors like Cinderella. I would have a pic but my slavedriver wouldn't let me stop long enough! :) haha!!

This past weekend we went back to Kentucky again! :) Friday night we met Darren and Jess in Paducah and went to watch the Lakers-Lone Oak playoff game! It was fun, but we left at half time! (ps they lost. Lone Oak is #2 in the state!) Our traveling continued as we rolled on to Bowling Green for Western's homecoming. This was Josh's "guys weekend" and we had a lot of fun once again! We stayed at Isabelle's (Kelly's Mom) and Kelly unexpectedly came up too! Saturday Mom came up and took me and Josh out to eat breakfast then we did a little shopping at the mall! Tailgating followed, and the day ended up great! It was great once again for both of us to see all of our friends!!!! We miss everyone so much!

So, that's our life the past month in a nutshell! I promise we won't take so long next time to post! (Su, I know I've totally not listened to your advice! I'm sorry I'll do better! :) ha!) I don't think we have anything planned for this coming weekend! But our traveling will start back up pretty soon! So, I'll leave you now with something that if it doesn't make your have something SERIOUSLY wrong with you! Happy Fall!

The Latest

Sooo, we went home this past weekend for Jess and Lee's wedding! We were supposed to leave on Friday at 2:15 but ended up leaving around 3:15 (Josh forgot his corn for the deer and we had to turn around about 15 minutes into our drive! (:) so we got home around 8. We got to see Josh's Granny and Emily! She was SO excited to see Josh!! Ethan was there too and he is SO big!!! It's unreal how big he has gotten in like 4 weeks!

Saturday Josh went with his dad and Emily to McDonald's and a farm sale, while I went with Mom to Somerset to find a dress to wear to the wedding and to get some mums! We got some great big ones!!! We're going to make a foughter shock? or shock of foughter or whatever you call it at our house! I hope it works!

Anyways, the wedding was at 5:30 and Jess looked BEAUTIFUL!!!! Her colors were brown and green and white! The church was decorated so awesome and the reception was cool too! It was so pretty and so much fun! It was also good to see some people we hadn't seen in a while!

Sunday was church and then some more time for family! I did NOT want to leave!!! But, we did and got home around 9 last night. We made another "haul" of our stuff (this time it was winter things) down here to Martin and the car was P-A-C-K packed!
I took a "mental health" day today from school! I needed it! I got to sleep till 8:45 and then have been lounging all day. The house is clean and most of the laundry is done...for now anways!

This coming weekend is Dawn and Ben's wedding in BG. Josh is a groomsman so we're going up Friday. I'm so excited! Josh is excited too since it will be the first time he's seen a lot of his friends since our wedding! It will be fun!

We're Here

Well, we're jumping on the blog bandwagon. After a whirlwind summer that has led us to marital bliss we thought we'd let ya'll in on the on-going's of the Bennett life here in Martin and maybe anything else that might pop into our minds. I (leslie) will probably be the one updating most of the time and will be sure to put pics and all kinds of things up weekly (even if it's not exciting!!!) We miss everyone! With love, from Blog Land!

Here's a pic from our honeymoon!
