Well, thr ceremony was very nice. The rest is still so fresh, I haven't digested it all yet. I'm still very hurt about a lot of things and will have to work through it.

On a lighter note, the little boy we hosted from CPNI 12 years ago and hadn't heard from in 11 years sent a letter and we got it Friday night. It really brightened up my week.We are also friends on FB now.

Last night Andy and Christine brought over fabric for me to make scarves for the bridesmaids. The wedding is Saturday. They are lucky I got all the cleaning and shopping done already. Also found out Andy hasn't been telling me everything Christine tells him to. Surprise, surprise. I'm still ready to scream. Aubrey, Claire, and Natalie will come this morning, and Allison and Chris come tonight. No word on tuxes yet.

Next week at this time , the wedding will be over and all the kids will be groggily getting out of bed to eat breakfast and then head home. I plan to cook something and I also invited Louise and Al to come over to eat. Andy called last night to let me know that my brother Al is coming to the wedding. I was very surprised!! The response card was received yesterday....a little late. I'm buying a hog for the rehearsal dinner..I was informed by Andy last week. We're going to spit half of it and have the other half processed. Andy and Christine are coming over sometime today to print the bulletins for the wedding. I have to speak to the Purple Goose about the liquot today also. This will be an interesting week. Some of the kida will be here Wednesday and the rest on Thursday. We go to pick up tuxes in Iowa on Thursday..stupid. I like being the mother of the bride much better. It costs more, but at least I know what's going on.
Pastor Mumme had a good sermon about the ELCA's decision on gays. I really don't understand how they can do it. Aubrey and Alec are ELCA. She didn't think the vote would go this way. Wonder what will happen now. If LCMS congregations will get converts.
Well, gotta go shampoo rugs.

Last Friday, Allison, Aubrey, Alair, Claire, Natalie and me went down to Iowa to fit Aubrey's brides maid dress. It just needed taking out a little. I would probably fit in a month, but just in case. I found a jacket to wear at the wedding and bought it. I later found out from Andy that Angel may be wearing the same thing. Oh well!!! We found a really cute bed and breakfast for our lunch. It was very girly and the food was great!! It's too bad Emily wasn't here. Hopefully they move here next year and we can do these things together.
The shower on Saturday was very nice. Christine got some very nice things.

Well, we probably aren't going to get relicensed for foster care after all. I am moving my sewing out to the one stall and pursuing that instead. We'll see what happens. I'm very excited!!!
