One Day to Go!

Today was an exciting day! The tent arrived and two men worked for a couple of hours getting it set up! So now we have instant shade and a place for shelter in case it rains but everyone is in total agreement that it won't rain - it simply wouldn't have the nerve!!!
Tables and chairs arrived so Missy and Jim spent some time getting those in place. Know what? It's starting to look like someone is having a pawty at our house! Mom asked me to check the garden for weeds so I'm helping out!

Not too long went by and another truck showed up - this was was carrying wedding potties so the guests have a place to go potty outside! I'm checking out the situation to make sure that everything is clean and tidy!


The dance floor is in place! That's an important part of the wedding mom says! Here we are giving it a whirl! All we need is music!

Mom has been working her hiney off trying to get every single weed out of these gardens! This is nearly an impossible situation but don't tell her that!

Cousin Chris flew in from California this morning and was here helping us haul soda, beer, wine and water from the basement to the red barn. This is the exciting part - the drinks to wash the FOOD down with! The food is what the wedding is all about, right?

At the end of the day, dad decided to order pizza and we ate it under the tent! It was awesome!

Time to relax! It's been stressful for awhile now but all the planning is finally coming together! The day is almost here!Tomorrow mom's family flies in from Florida and arrives mid-afternoon. The wedding rehearsal is at 5PM and the rehearsal dinner is at 6PM so things are moving at this point!
Saturday is the big day! Caterers will be here with the important stuff and the DJ will come and set up to play music and before you know it the guests will arrive and the appetizers will come out.
The wedding arbor will be set in place and Missy will come out of the house looking just beautiful! There's still lots to do and I'm getting ahead of myself but it's so exciting!
I'm getting pooped just thinking about it!
I think I'll just relax here in this nice cool grass!
Until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie
