wedding dress party

The book group Wear Your Wedding Dress (and bring your photo album) Event went off perfectly last night. It was a riot trying to guess which dress belonged to whom as Steph, our hostess, drew from the pile, removed the archival case and displayed each one- we seldom got it right. Everyone remembered their wedding photo albums and with the exception of VaLene whose dress is stored far away in Oregon… we all suited up and attempted to zip…  We passed around and poured over photo albums and marveled at 1990’s fashion, the years that have flown by, the 33 children we collectively mother and that includes three sets of fraternal girl twins. And 9 husbands we owe some credit to- pictured in albums but not pictured above. I had to throw in some credit to the husbands because I know what you might be thinking,  and nice try but NO we aren’t sister wives…

This is NOT the case… but it sure is funny to joke about. We thought it would be inappropriately appropriate to put the long suffering Dave (husband of the hostess) in the picture, just for kicks and giggles. He appears a tad bit nervous.

Oh, if only I could laugh that hard and eat so many delicious treats every day…

      Um… thanks, I think. I’m not sure how to decipher that, is that a good or a bad thing??
