Our Forever and Ever Party

Maggie and Ian's wedding reception.

"What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.
Now lets party!!!

Maggie chose Crepes and Fruit Salad for her luncheon.  This guy took over my kitchen with his Crepe Station.  I love it when that happens.  The pups (far right floor) helped clean up.

Our front garden was where we feasted.  It was a perfect summer day. 

Abigail Rose was Maggie's stubborn little flower girl.  Just as Maggie stood her ground at three and refused to wear her wreath
of flowers at her sisters wedding, Abby declined to wear hers. What goes around, comes around. Oh well, they
are both beautiful as they stand alone.

Bare feet are the best feet.

Maggie's Godmother gave her this beautiful Rosary which, we wrapped into her wedding bouquet.

"Hey, watcha got there Ferb?"
I bought these little quilted hearts just to leave out on the coffee table for my grand babies to play
with.  It's amazing the use they get!  These photos stand on their own.  Finnegan and Rebecca, aka Phineas and Ferb.
"Grammy's Coasters.  Wanna play?"

"You're my hero Finn"

"What can I say? That old lady has pretty good taste in Coasters."

Maggie had her cake made at VG's Donut shop.  Did I ever mention that donuts are her favorite food?  Ian's aunt sewed these squares that we used on the cake table.  Now she has put them together as a quilt for their bed.  How cool is that?

The menu.  It was a sweet and savory day, just like it says.
Ah, my heart melts.  My eldest son, my eldest daughter, my youngest granddaughter and my pup.
This is what life is all about.  This is what makes my soul sing.  My family.  This is how I have been blessed.

Finn in his favorite place.  His mama's arms.

Now I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to show off a few of my grandchildren.  Oh the cuteness!

Napkin rings make fabulous rings for beautiful little girls as well.

A sneak peek through an open window.

My son-in-law Justin, propped himself right here next to the beverages.  I'm sure he was just guarding them?  Check out the smile.  Perfectly innocent.

At last the time had come.  Every good party has an ending and we were all tuckered out.

A few of us may have even been a little cranky.
So, we bid our newlyweds adieu, and off they went on their honeymoon.  Where to you ask?The beach of course!

Mr. and Mrs. Lawson and their son Finn.
We wish you all the love your hearts can hold.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

And now these three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Thanks for sharing some of my most special moments.
