Saturday morning since my brother is in town before his deployment my mom wanted to do some new family pictures! It was a beautiful morning in the park and perfect weather for pictures…….( Both outfits Matt is wearing was part of his Birthday presents from me….super cute I must say)

Matt and I even changed to sneak in a few of our own pictures for Christmas Cards hopefully…..

Here is my brother and his girlfriend Jordan, they wanted a few pictures together before the deployment! Which is understandable since Curtis will be gone until next June!

Marissa got a few of her own taken also! I am excited to see how they all turn out! The photographer Rachelle went to HS with my brother and I went to HS with her husband!

Here is Jordan (congrats on her blog debut….HAHA), she has been living in NYC and worked for Haper Collins (so cool) but she is actually moving back to Okc in a few weeks. It was nice to meet her and my brother seems very happy. They met during college (OBU) and reconnected over the summer!

SO then comes the moment I was waiting for ( I was on pins and needles all morning)…………I told Matt I had a present for my brother but really it was for him. It was in a Christmas sack because this is his Christmas present! He is confused….

Matt is like, Oh thanks………and then I dropped the BOMB! I told him we gotta get…….we have a drive to make and he looks at me with a 1/2 smile and I then tell him we are going to the WORLD SERIES! BOOM!

The Cardinals are his favorite team and when we were dating about 5 years ago I also surprised him with a trip to St. Louis to go a Cards game… this is a full circle moment! Yes! The tickets were expensive but since it was only a 3 hour drive for us to Ranger Stadium I knew this was a ONCE in a lifetime experience! I mean THE WORLD SERIES!!!!!!! If your a sports fan you know how amazing this is!

Matt still looks a little shocked huh? And I have the cheesiest “I am so glad I surprised you” grin all over my face! Gift giving is so selfish, I swear I felt better than he did!
Stay tuned for our Game Pics!!!!!!!!!!
Hope you all had a great weekend like we did!
