Can you believe it...

 For the last couple of months it seems like Don and I have been going non-stop...preparing...well...the day finally came...and the thing is...I forgot to get out my camera once the guests started arriving...and take pictures!! I got so busy...with food, drinks, greeting everyone...I didn't even pose for one picture with the kids...oh well...it's all a blur to me now...
 We spent so long preparing...sewing, planting, gardening, cooking, cleaning, painting...I even made pretty table runners for all the surfaces inside...Selin has a good friend who took pictures...I am just waiting to see them now...and print them...I'm so glad we at least got pictures on their wedding day!
 My back yard was a sea of tables and chairs...we weren't sure how everyone was going to fit in...
 this was before all the candles got put on the tables...there were candles everywhere...in all sorts of jars and holders...it was pretty...sure hope Ann got pictures...boy am I a dope! 
 I guess sometimes these things happen...Don and I don't have a single picture of our wedding day...we eloped...went with our best friends...film didn't hook on the camera...it was blank...oh well...everyone seemed to have a great time! Wish you could see all the smiling faces!!
 I did get a picture of Lola checking things out before the guests arrived...see...even Lola was ready in her pretty white and gold ribbon...
 Lots of desserts...

 My sister, Debbie and her daughter, Chelsey helped us so much with the desserts...I did get a picture of Selin and my younger son, Stephen with Debbie before the guests started arriving...before Selin changed too...
The next morning we had a nice big breakfast with the brave ones who returned back...and Joseph and Selin opened some presents...they seemed to enjoy the ribbons just as much as the gifts...the football game was on...so I think Joseph was a bit distracted...
Things are getting back to normal around here...it took a while to get the house back together...furniture had to be moved....borrowed items returned...things boxed up...now Don and I are concentrating on our craft fair next Saturday...and our much needed vacation!!! I hope soon that I will have time to come visit you all ...and catch up on what's been happening in your lives...soon...I promise...
Until then...enjoy your day!!!

From what I see, everything looked beautiful. Good luck at your show next weekend. You deserve a great vacation. Hope you are planning on going someplace cool. The weather hass been hot and humid here too.
Can't believe you got sewing for the show done along with all the work for the party. You are indeed blessed with a good helper.

Wow! It must have been amazing--the setting was fantastic! I'm sure you need to rest up after all the excitement and work prepping for it. Best of luck getting ready for the craft fair!
