The Highlight of our Weekend (long, picture heavy post)

Joining WIP Wednesday at Tami’s, cause I didn’t get to share this on a FO Friday.

Was the wedding of our niece to a wonderful young man. A match surely made in heaven. One we pray will succeed in a culture not known for success in the marriage mart. But we think it’s got a good chance since these two are made for each other.

Now, for the photo that is the most important,

I had been trying to find her before the wedding to give her the shawl, but couldn’t find her. The wedding was at an inn in a nearby town, but I wasn’t sure which room she was staying in. But it worked out for the best since I had the shawl with me when we got together after the wedding for the family photos. I was able to put it on her shoulders for a quick shot and the photographer was able to get some of her in it.

My niece had actually been looking for me to get the shawl so she would have it for photos. I knew she wouldn’t be wearing it for the wedding, so didn’t think it would be an issue. However it came in handy later in the evening to chase away the chill. With a dip in temps last week, it was needed. I believe many people had to change plans for what to wear since the temps went from the 70’s the weekend before to the 50’s-60’s the day of the wedding. Even my Mom and College Girl were scrambling for a wrap. And I was able to come through.

Regardless of weather things went off without a hitch, the bride was lovely, her groom was handsome, the event was wonderful, and now we get to look forward to babies when they are ready!!! But I do hope they give me a break, after knitting for 3 babies over 10 months time, I will be ready for a rest.

* My Brother was lucky enough to gain three kids upon his marriage. Mrs A asked both her dads to escort her down the aisle.

Mom update: No news yet, waiting for the results of the CT scan they did yesterday and the biopsy report. And then tomorrow Hubster goes in for his first colonoscopy. His sister had hers last year and they found pre-cancerous polyps, so her Dr advised the siblings to follow suit if they had not already been having them. Hubster is just 46, so he had yet to have the pleasure. LOL! Please pray for good report for Mom and for clean bill of health for Hubster. Thank you SOOOOOO much!!!
