Now backing up to end of August and my granddaughter's wedding. It all went well, was very pretty and fun.

I went down to Omaha the day before so I could get situated in a hotel room with my oldest daughter. Then we went to the rehearsal and supper. I am so thankful my other daughter (mother of the bride) was able to get a wheelchair for me. My oldest daughter had the 'privilege' of being my driver, both to and from venues as well as pushing the wheelchair wherever I needed to be.  That wheelchair was a lifesaver for me because I would not have made it with all the walking and standing around. The morning after the wedding we went to the bridal couple's new home to watch them opening their gifts with some of the rest of the family and their close friends.

I so enjoyed getting to know my new 'grandson-in-law' (?) much better over the weekend. Even though they had dated for many years, and I saw him a few times, he was pretty quiet and I really didn't know his true personality. My granddaughter found a great guy!

Here are a few pictures of the big event.

 Can you read the sign next to the cake? 
"The best things in life are meant to be shared, especially cake."

What is a wedding without cake face smashing?!
They were nice about it, not like some that you see on Facebook where they can get a bit nasty.

I guess I forgot to take a picture of the cross stitch I did as part of their gift. This one is the same design I did for someone else. Granddaughter teared up when she opened the box.


  1. I know that cross-stitched picture was a favorite treasured gift.

  2. I can just imagine how much it meant to her. I have a special bookmark in my Bible and every time I handle it (which is every day) I think of the dear lady who made it for me and smile and say a prayer for her.


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
