Daughter's Wedding

Image
 It happened.... #1 Daughter got married Saturday....
The wedding rehearsal dinner was held on Thursday evening.  The groom had a few men  who were high school football coaches...and we all know that on Friday it is  football games..so that was okay to have the rehearsal on Thursday.  I liked it... so Friday was spent decorating the church and the reception hall.
These two little guys were ushers.
Nate loves his little cousin.
Saturday was a gorgeous summer (even though the calendar said October) day.  Daughter has had three open heart surgeries and her last open heart surgery was last year...October 12, 2017 to be exact (a mother never forgets).  Her two pediatric cardiologist, her surgeon's assistant, and her echo cardiologist drove down frpm Charlottesville.  Daughter was thrilled and some tears were shed remembering all she had been through...and how far she has come.
Two of my closest friends who are also college roommates and sorority sisters came from Atlanta. Had to have a …

Football, Parade, Wedding

This is Wedding Week...but let's talk football and parade first.
This past week has been busy...
Daughter #1 who is getting married Saturday decided to put a float in our Apple Festival Parade...Sure I don't have but a million other things going through my head right now...food, clothes, decorations, music, shoes, hairstyle, dry cleaning, etc.  You name it...it is on my mind. And hub hasn't been feeling the best in the world..cancer is so mean and nasty.
So we began decorating a float...a simple float...I just didn't have much time to put a lot of thought into building a float...Why?  I was trying to get ready for a wedding!!  We began building/well sort of building the float on Tuesday...I had to go to Zumba Monday night..I needed a stress reliever..One needs to prioritize right?  Tuesday evening both daughters came and we began trying to assemble a float...

We used apple trees hung with apples, apple crates to sit on, apple kettle in the middle, and an apple used for…

Tragedy....

Tragedy struck my little community on Thursday evening....

A three-year-old was killed by a golf cart.  Personally, I didn't know this family...they had moved here a few months ago. 

The second tragedy---I personally knew the family.  A thirty-year old was killed in a farming accident.  This person just became a father for the first time two months ago.  The man's mother and I were friends for 20+ years...  Today, I didn't  know what to say....hoping my presence was enough.

Please pray for these two families as they go through the days, weeks, months, and years ahead.

#1 Daughter is getting married in 20 days!!! October 6th to be exact...
 I am thrilled for her and her future husband.  They became engaged the first of December....and now here it is wedding time. #1 Daughter, Amanda, is a pharmacist, and her future husband is a teacher..a government teacher.
Amanda had a bridal shower a few weeks ago...(I feel terrible about not blogging about this sooner, but with hub's sickness I simply forgot :(  :( 
Her colors are oasis and fall colors.  Since they both currently own their own house, they have pretty much two of everything.  Their plans are to purchase a piece of property and build their own house one day in the near future.
Here are a few pics of her bridal shower:
