Showers of Sweetness

K was blessed with several showers before the wedding, which of course always included yummy food being served!

That's chocolate cheesecake you see here!


After the shower at A's home church, we spent the afternoon making mints. This does not show the actual brightness of the pink mints, and the center ones were white not yellow, but the blue is pretty accurate. With these we didn't dare go any closer toward navy blue.

This homemade apron was a shower gift.

We made numerous batches of homemade ice cream to serve at the reception.

We also made candy for reception favors.

Each guest received a bag like this.

Yes--it took much time to make the candy, print and cut the cards, and fill and tie the bags, but we had some good help with the final evening of work putting together the programs and fixing the favor bags.





Peanut butter, chocolate cream cheese, and chocolate chip cookie dough centers!
Yummm!

A Wedding!

Did I mention there was a June wedding in our family? I claim that as reason for being AWOL from the blog so much lately. : ) But now, the excuse is no longer valid.

I
figured the day would fly by when it actually arrived, and that is just what it did! All of the preparations--planning, deciding, shopping, gathering, cooking, arranging--came together on June 5 when K and A exchanged their lifelong vows before God in a beautiful ceremony in our home church. It was such a joyous time, made all the more special by being surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family members!

I didn't take any pictures during the wedding or reception. Guess that's why you hire someone for that job! (Don't have those back yet.) But I did take them beforehand and once the reception was done. Plus, B's sister graciously shared those she took with us. So.... I'll just use this one photo she took for now, and try to chronicle more in some forthcoming posts.
