Big fat smiley face.

What a week it's been! The Mr.'s brother and his family arrived on Wednesday, I worked Thursday and Friday and welcomed a new nephew, Saturday we tested sound, met for final 50th Anniversary plans and had a huge family get together and then yesterday was the big day.

Up at 7:30, everyone primped and prettied, to church for photos, mass, straight to ballroom to get set up for guest photos and then we could play!

We did this:

For every guest that came in, then had them sign the guest book which was a photo album with space for writing next to each photo! So the guests photo will go next to their signature!

Then, my talented sister-in-law taught the grandchildren a cute little in-laws were married in Hawaii while my father-in-law was stationed there for the Navy.

Check it the 0:27 mark, it's rather cute!

You're smiling now, too, aren't you? :)

  2. You all look fab, I love the girls dresses - so pretty.
    I love that Hula song - Lilo & Stitch is one of my favourite Disney's. They did a great job. I want a wedding party/anniversary like that!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
