On Sunday there was a bridal shower for Amy and Eric at my Mom's house. My sister and her daughter Katie threw it and it was a really nice time. The food was great and Mom's yard looked like a park. They had done so much work to get it ready. Mom and Midge had mulched trees, moved wood from a tree that was cut down, prepared a ton of food and with all the skill that they have mastered over the years of throwing party events for family and church, they pulled a super shower for the happy couple. Even the weather cooperated. They don't have my outdoor event weather curse. It cooled down, and the sun shown and a breeze kept it pleasant. Nice job and a fun time too. This rose bloomed special just for this day...
Pretty cake and it tasted great.
Amy and Eric received a ton of lovely gifts. This one was from me and my other Amy (daughter-in-law). Amy the bride loves October and Halloween. So I thought this was a different gift but something I knew they would like.
Midge loves to decorate and she has a knack for outdoor events. These are the tables and deck she readied for the shower...She really outdid herself.
The yard looked so pretty...like a wedding reception instead of the shower!
The food was great. There was a wonderful variety that Midge had made but these shish kabobs were special to me...we bonded..really...until 1am...I helped skewer 60 of these suckers..but they were good!
Amy put together these cute little boxes that had their pic on it and some goodies inside. Remember, I told you the cookie card looked just like them.
Saying goodbye is always the hard part of a fun visit.
As Taylor was saying his goodbyes to his Great Grandma he informed her that when he moves again (their family moves about every 2 yrs) he was moving there...he was so serious about it and it sure brought a smile to her face.. But T-money...don't you want to move near me???? Actually there are a ton of relatives wishing you lived near them!
