Family time

The past couple of weeks I have been in the states and had wonderful family time. My sister graduated from her Dental Assistant program on Saturday, August 27th. She was so excited. I was so glad to be able to attend her graduation.

Monday the 29th, my grandmother and uncle came in from New York and spend the whole week with us. They came in for my sister's wedding, but it was great to spend some extra time with them since they stayed at the house with us. The whole week before was lots of preparation for the wedding and tying up last minute details.
On Friday we spent almost 12 hours at the church decorating and getting things ready for the big day on Saturday. It was alot of fun making it pretty like she wanted. It was also alot of work!!! We were exhausted at the end of the day. We made the bouquets and boutonnieres and corsages with flowers we bought. We had to put the centerpieces together, set up the tables and set up an archway that my sister wanted in the church.
On Saturday...the big wedding day...we got up early for Mom and Shannon to get their hair done and be ready for pictures in the park at 10:30. Then we headed to the church. Got there early to do some last minute setting up, and then ready for the ceremony. It was beautiful.

Oh and I have to add one more detail...

Yes, I caught the bouquet...doesn't matter, does it, that it was only me and my 16 year old cousin. ;) She ended up on the floor. It was fun!
