Opening presents....

is FUN...
...when it's your bridal shower!

That's my sweet Laura, and yesterday she was honored at her first of two showers!

Here she is with the hostesses......Elizabeth and Caroline
Here she is with the mothers...... me and Vicki.
Here she is with the grandmothers...
...Gay, Margaret, and Viola.
Here she is with some of her college roommates.......Claire, Tinsley and Elise.
Here she is with her current grad school roommates....
...Laura and Katherine. (And my Laura's name is Laura Katherine!)

Here are some random pics....
That's Vicki (Laura's church 'home-group' leader) with Ryan's darling sister Victoria.
That's Bailey and Marcie - two of my most favorite people in the world!
(Oh, but I like you, too, dear blog reader.)

Here are more pictures I like...


And, of course, you must see pictures of the food ....which was AMAZING....


A particularly wonderful part of the shower was this silver service...It was recently lovingly handed down to Elizabeth from Grandmother.
We were thrilled that Elizabeth used it. (That picture is of four of the six pieces.)

So those were some pictures....
....but would you believe I did NOT get a picture of my dear sister-in-law (and Laura's aunt) Pat!
What was I thinking?
(Obviously I wasn't.)

Ah, but it was a GRAND occasion! Over the top!!!

Thank you so very much, Elizabeth and Caroline. You outdid yourselves!!!
