Sneak Peek

I'm trying to get the placecards printed and my printer hates fat paper! I have to pick up another yard of periwinkle chiffon, final payment to the photographer, address announcements , dig out my white christmas lights...and the list goes on and on...but we are down to the nitty gritty details! Yeah! In 10 days...I'll have a new son-in-law, pictures of four generations together(yes, we'll have great grandmas with us) and all of the 9 cousins together (a real rarity), hopefully hear my son play his sax for his sister's special day, see my beautiful Jada and squeeze her till she begs me to let go, eat out every day for 6 whole days...yeaah!, and finally lie on the beach(although I have neither time nor money to get that new swim suit I desperately need).
2 wedding attendants have cancelled due to cancelled leave (the hazards of planning a wedding with military people in training all over the USA) and we currently have 2 more heads than we can comfortably seat in bride's preferred seating arrangement....minister is set, musicians are set, DJ is set, FOB needs to work on his speech......whew...are you overwhelmed yet? I know I am! LOL

Here's THE DRESS (for me that is :)) Kind of fuzzy but the best I could do picture wise.....good pics after the
wedding, promise!
I don't think I'm actually as wide as this pic implies....:) of course I could be in denial....

How excited you must be! My oldest daughter got married in 2004 and they are expecting their first baby this June. We're looking forward to that. (Actually, I'm already a Grandma x3 by my oldest child, my son David.) Isn't it wonderful how God blesses our lives with wonderful moments like these? I'm praying for you this week, that stress will be overpowered by God's perfect peace.

Work on his speech!? I always thought FOB was pretty much accustomed to winging it! ;)

Congrats again, Cheryl. Hey to Tim. And thanks for the message.
