dressed up like a lady: Wedding shower...

Wedding shower...

My mom and dad threw us a wedding shower last weekend, and it was absolutely wonderful. :)

Our beeeeeeeautiful cake-maker and groomsman (and friends!) Dave and Beth!

Mom made all these yummy finger sandwiches herself!

Noise makers and water guns for the kids, who used the heck out of 'em!

Our beeeeeeautiful friend and hairdresser Vanessa.

My beeeeeeeautiful mom!

My folks went a little crazy with the vegan cake...

I was so ecstatic and moved by all our friends and family being there, that when it came time to open gifts, I kept tearing up just reading the cards!

I realized as I was uploading these that we really only got a handful of pictures ourselves -- most of the time we were too busy socializing and chasing kids around making animal noises! Luckily, both of our dads were there, doing what dads do: obsessively prowling the party with their own cameras, getting lots of photos for us to treasure, especially of the little ones squealing and playing. My mom eventually changed her clothes so she could go out into the yard and chase the kids around with the hose, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Afterward, they all put their clothes in the dryer and ran around in my dad's gigantic t-shirts. It was just perfect.

  12. That's so sweetly awesome of your parents. Call me old fashioned (really, do, I never mind :D), but I adore it when people hold their wedding shower and/or (some or all of their) wedding itself at home (be it their own, their parent's, grandparent's, etc). It's so reminiscent of countless weddings past throughout the ages, and the days when most people did not spend a substantial fortune just to tie the knot, but instead focused more on the people they were with and the joy or joining together in wedded matrimony with the person they loved.
