Thursday, July 3 – With the wedding just around the corner it was time for the girls to celebrate. It began with Carrie, our youngest, flying to Canton from Houston.

Kelly, Carrie, Marsha, and some close friends and relatives got together for happy hour on Friday night. They had a great time and finished up the night rendezvousing with the guys who had their own happy hour/dinner at a local pub.

Saturday was the Bachelorette party for Kelly and her friends. They spent the day at a resort area, Put-In-Bay, on Lake Erie. They enjoyed themselves touring the island and visiting several of the local taverns. We are sorry, but we cannot post any of the photos of that day/night. Let your imagination run wild.

Sunday was one of the days Marsha has been waiting for for a very long time. She was throwing a wedding shower for Kelly. She's been working very hard on this celebration. It was held in the party room of a local golf course. Carrie and the bridesmaids did a fantastic job of helping her get everything ready. Jackie, Dave’s mom, and Chris, Kelly’s Godmother and Aunt, chipped in with making the favors and taking care of the lovely cake table. Marsha says a HUGE thank you to them all. The celebration was so much fun. Kelly was thrilled with the entire day.

This is what welcomed Kelly to her bridal shower.

  4. I'm guessing than in 16 days the mother of the bride will be ready to collapse. Enjoy the moment and make memories.

  5. So glad your shower was a huge success, not that I ever doubted it would be:) Looks like a typical women's gathering...nonstop mouth moving. You, Carrie and Kelly look wonderful!! In a very short time you won't know what to do with your self. The wedding will be but a memory and the big house project finished. Maybe you can take a few days of just relaxing:) Good luck with all the last minute little things. The big is so close now:)

  6. Quite the celebrations with more to come, I'm sure. It's nice to see all the girls so happy!

  7. awwww. . .how precious to be so involved in everything. I only had sons, and that's great too. . .but now that everyone's all grown up, I envy my friends their mother/daughter relationships a little bit. . .just a tad.
