Wedding Tent Goes UP

December 23, 2010

Wedding Tent Goes Up

The wedding tent went up this morning. Rehearsal is this afternoon. As you can see the weather looks very stormy but at the moment we have a 60% chance that it will just be cloudy on the wedding day December 26th. We did see Molly this morning looking out the box. She was like all the neighbors; they just want to see what’s going on.

Austin is getting closer to his goal of 4,000 DVDs sold. As of just a few minutes ago he only needed 255 sales, he hopes to be below 250 by the end of the day. We want to thank all those that have bought more than one DVD, it really helps. Molly’s Story a documentary DVD makes such a great gift for all occasions.

    I think that it is wonderful that you have made us a part of your family. Is Molly going to be the Matron of Honor?? She can fly the ring in!! Now that would be a sight…

    Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year to everyone!!!

    Praying for sunshine for Sunday….but if no sun…did you know that rain on your wedding day means good luck? (Old Irish Lore)

    Wish the Royal family a wonderful and refreshing Christmas and many blessings to Ashley and Spencer in their married life ahead.

    What a wonderful way to see YOUR Ashely “fledge”. Hearts around the worrld are sharing in your pride and joy. Thank you for sharing your life with us. Merry Christmas and Happy Wedding Day.

  13. Teri Saffren - Irthum Says:

    It feels amazing to part of your lives. Millions of people around the world are smiling and wishing Ashley and Spencer a long wonderful life together. Thank you for sharing this with us. The wedding will be beautiful no matter what the weather decides to do. And I second the nomination of M & M as ring bearers. God Bless you all

  14. Kenneth Patchen Says:

    I suspect Molly and McGee are assuming that the nice people who live at this home, and provided such a nice place for their first two clutches, have merely found a bigger, better whiter canvas owlbox for them to use, one that allows all-weather flight training and hunting. I mean, why wouldn’t they think that? Merry Solstice you sweetheart owls. –AntPatch

  15. GeniaKnitz Says:

    Maybe Callie the Kestrel will find a mate and there can be a double wedding!

  16. Patricia Sowers Says:

    Merry Christmas Royal Family and Congratulations to Ashley and Spencer. Thank you Carlos for keeping us updated on everything. We are your extended family and love and care so much for your entire family. I agree with previous postings that Molly would be a great Matron of Honor, and McGee a precious ringbearer. What a picture that would make. I hope all of your family have a wonderful Holiday/Wedding celebration and Happy New Year to all of you. Much love from Virginia..PattiinVA

  17. Mary Jozwiak Says:

    I hope the storm clouds all blow away! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  18. Diane Erdely Says:

    Here’s hoping the weather stays dry for the big day! Merry Christmas to the Royal Family!

  19. VeeTX Says:

    Why am I so excited about this wedding???? Probably because of Carlos, Donna and Austin – and the whole Royal family. Carlos, I’d love if if you could get a shot of either Molly or McGee looking out at the goings on from their Owl Box.

    I’ll bet Ashley isn’t getting much sleep – what with the wedding only days to go!!! How excited. Best wishes to Spencer and Ashley!


  20. Sherry Says:

    Wishing you and your family only “showers of blessings”!

  21. kit Says:

    So Molly is peeking out? That’s funny, she’s just like everyone else, excited about a wedding!

  22. Madonna Varchetto-Bonner Says:

    What a beautiful setting for a wedding! You kinow my Mom always said that it was good luck for a rain drop to fall on the bride. I had a couple raindrops right at the end of our outside wedding and we have been married for 16 yrs and are very happy. Maybe there is something to Anyway, when two people are truly in love nothing can spoil their special day. Maybe the minister could bless Molly and Mcgee after the wedding. That would make a nice picture! Can’t wait to see some more pics. Thanks so much for sharing. Carlos and Donna, if you only knew how many lives you have touched by opening up yours to so many.I thank you. Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful wedding!!! Madonna

  23. Ginny in NJ Says:

    Oh Donna and Carlos, how exciting. I pray for a beautiful wedding day. What a joy thanks for sharing with us. Have a Belssed Christmas, Jesus is the reason for the season.

  27. Darlene Salisbury Says:

    Crossing my fingers and toes for clear blue sky on the wedding day. At least for no rain. But whether there is rain or shine there will be love in the air.
    Once again Carlos and Donna Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the entire family.
    Many many good wishes to the bride and groom.
    Love hearing from you.

  28. Sandra Says:

    I was told on my wedding day that if you are worried about rain put a rosary on the clothesline. It doesn’t matter if you are catholic or not. And if you do it will not rain on the bride while she is outside in her wedding dress. Worked on our wedding day, 2 of my brothers and 5 different friends now. Right after my SIL got into the reception hall the downpour that had been threatening all day started but stopped as they left later to head to the hotel. Give it a try. It can’t hurt.
    Enjoy the day.

  29. bradleytwins (cynthiabradley) Says:

    My prayers are that it will stay nice and dry on the day of the wedding. It should be beautiful though no matter what. Thank you for sharing this exciting time with all of us! Hope Molly looks out for a peek during the festivities. God bless your whole family…human and “fowls”!!

  30. Donna Simonson Says:

    There’s a little bit of heaven in Carlos and Donna’s backyard. The wedding will be beautiful and blessed. Oh my gosh, we’re going to have to pass the tissues around just as we did in Molly’s chat room. Let the wedding bells ring and the fun begin!Many blessings to Ashley and Spencer. The world is watching the magic once again along with Molly!
    Blessings to all with much love, hugs and prayers owlways!

    Today the sun is shining and the wedding tent and gardens are drying! All this love, happiness, prayers, wishes, good news and all the wonderful comments make me want to sing:

    Plenty of sunshine headed my way.
    Zip a dee doo-dah, zip a dee ay

    Mister bluebird on my shoulder
    It’s the truth, it’s actual.
    Everything is satisfactual.

    Zip a dee doo-dah, zip a dee ay
    Wonderful feelin’.
    Wonderful day.

    Love you all !

  45. Kathy Says:

    My daughter suggested that Callie the kestrel should fly by and catch the bouquet after the wedding, in hopes of finding a mate! Hope she did! Ashley found her mate and I know she and Spencer will have a long, happy life together. They have excellent role models for that!
