Wedding bells recap

The family is changing by their oldest daughters entering courtship. Jessa is having a hard time focusing on their family's household task. Jinger is now packing and getting things organized for their trip to visit the bates. The duggar girls decided to play a joke on Erin since Erin can't cook. The girls put a book of easy recipes, takeout menus, and smoke alarm and fire extinguisher. Jessa's boyfriend Ben and his mom head up to Tennessee since it will be Ben's first trip. Jim Bob has came up with a new way to get everyone out on time, whoever is last owes him $5.

At the Bates's house, Jessa introduce Ben to everyone. Erin takes the duggar girls aside to show them her dress since she found it on the clearance rack at the bridal shop and they had it made to be modest. Next Ben and Jessa head over to Chad and Erin's new house which is about five miles from the family. Jessa was surprised to see the master bedroom pink.

Erin talks about how it's bittersweet since she is moving out soon and won't be able to have an all night talk with her sisters. Gil tells her that she can still have sleepovers but Erin wants to make sure that Chad is fine with that. Jana says that Chad and Erin are prefect for each other.

Erin reveals that the couple had decided to wait for their first kiss on their wedding. The morning of the wedding a film crew asked Erin about what she thought about having her first kiss and she said that is why she is having her first kiss. Erin is nevrous about taking a big step in her life and asked Jana and Jill to pray with her before the wedding.

The duggar boys and bates Boys decided to car trasher like they did with Josh and Anna's car back in September 2008. The car was trash really bad by the boys putting sardiness and mothballs underneath the seat. Chad quickly gets the car ready and they head out to go to their honeymoon.

Singing in Colorado

Lawson received an offer too good to resist when some people offered to make a music video of one of the original songs on his CD. The featured song, “The End Down Here,” gives a glimpse of Heaven and the hope Christians have when this life on earth is over.  (

So last week, Lawson and Nathan flew to Denver, Colorado, for the 8 day adventure and film project. We are grateful to Corey Cheney with Provident Media Group ( for undertaking this task!  We’re also very thankful for the Johnson family who are hosting the boys during their stay, and to Timothy, Mark, and Nathan Johnson for their help.
It’s been an incredible experience for the boys, as they are wrapping up their visit with only 2 days left. Nathan promised he’s going to take me back one day to see these gorgeous views! Until then, I’ll have to enjoy the music video which will be released in a few weeks!
