. . . i've had a couple of friends
{hi friends!}
ask to see these photos
from the little wedding dinner fiesta
we had for these two . . .

{jessalyn and drew - the [at the time] soon-to-be-married couple}


. . . decorations consisted of red and white . . .
. . . lots of red and white . . .
. . . readily available at this time of year, obviously . . .


. . . my awesome friends
{hi awesome friends!}
and i baked cookies . . .

. . . lots of cookies . . .

. . . no ~ really . . .

. . . we baked a LOT of cookies . . .

. . . and then we built a fancy dessert table
in the middle of a basketball court . . .
. . . with BIG, HUGE thanks
to my sister-in-law, molly . . .
. . . for her expert help
and the use of her awesome stuff . . .

{see if you can spot my dentist, former next-door neighbor,
the nice guy who kept all the chairs wiped off at the reception,
an oregon state football player, an engaged couple,
my stake president, and where's waldo}

. . . drew and jessalyn did a fabulous job
of introducing all the guests . . .


. . . these guys from costa vida
are my new best friends . . .
. . . did you know they will deliver, set up,
serve, clean up
and package all the leftovers for you? . . .
. . . now you know . . .


. . . my cute sons . . .
{chris, drew, brent and tyler}

. . . and beautiful daughters . . .

{amber, amanda, jessalyn and amelia}

. . . pretty grandmas . . .

{davis and romney}

. . . best friends . . .

{shellene and amanda}

. . . lots of blondes helping in the kitchen . . .

{amanda, karen, lori and vicki}

. . . i'm sorry there are no photos of peg . . .
. . . she literally spent hours
helping us set up and baking . . .

. . . and then . . .
. . . THEN . . .
. . . everyone helped clean up . . .

. . . it was great! . . .

. . . and before i knew it . . .
. . . it was as if this . . .

. . . had never happened . . .

It was beautiful, Stephanie. I want to be you in the next world and I want to cook and coordinate like Peg. Sorry I was a loser through this whole event. (P.S. thanks for the warning on the photo shoot so I could hold my sagging double chin up with my thumbs...I think it worked)
