Congratulations Aunt Janine

It's been a busy week hanging out with my Aunt Janine in preparation for her wedding. We've been able to run all kinds of errands and have family fun at the same time right up to today - her wedding day at their home in Vancouver, Washington. Everything was handmade with love from the fresh flowers we arranged from garden roses and dahlias to the dress she sewed and the beaded shawl I knitted. Aunt Rita made the cakes - banana cake and chocolate with marionberry. The rain didn't spoil the outdoor ceremony as the guests sat under a tent filled with china table settings and satin tablecloths. It was a beautiful wedding with the rain falling softly around us followed by a wedding dance that moved into the dining room. Congratulations my dear Aunt Janine and your new husband, Dave.
