Enjoyed omelet – courtesy of Dave.
Last minute errands.
Chatted with Kayla on the phone before her hair/makeup appointment.
Relaxed in front of TV.
Feeling calm and proud of all we had accomplished.
Kale comes home – just chillin’.
One hour until photo session - about to get dressed.
Phone call from Kayla.
Both hairstyles - a DISASTER. Kayla is distraught.
Frantic phone calls… Kay, my wonderful hairdresser, comes to the rescue.
Kayla is happy again.
We all make it to the church for photos about 30 minutes late.
Button falls off Kale’s tux jacket.
Wedding begins ON SCHEDULE (did you notice Brother Steve?)
Wedding was BEAUTIFUL!!
Yes, I cried.
Head to reception - major caterer disaster.
I freak out. Start making punch. (BTW, chocolate coffee punch was the crowd favorite.)
After what seems like forever… food is served. SORRY guests! We really do love you.
Kale and Kayla off to their mini-honeymoon destination… and off to begin their lives together. Smiling all the way.

The day certainly had it’s tense moments. But, the kids are just as married and all is well.
I want to thank everyone who helped us: Jodi and Gary (who stayed to clean until 10 PM, they also helped us so much setting up); Steve, Judy, Kelly, Joe and Libby for getting the church put back together for Sunday services; Carla (Dave’s sister) and Ray X. for helping the caterer.
Thank you, Steve, for all the years you’ve been there for our family. It is a huge blessing for you to marry our “baby” after all these years.
Thank you, Lord, for blessing our son with a beautiful girl, inside and out, to spend his life with and for blessing David and me with a daughter.
We have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week!
