Yesterday was the day for Gracie's wedding to Dave. It was a gorgeous November day and totally unexpected good weather. We lucked out big time. The only negative remark I have is that the bathroom situation at the Rehearsal Hall- Sundance, Utah, (where the reception was held) was ridiculous. They're outside and not close to the building. Not good with ladies and their high heels. They really need to build some in the building. Other than that, though, it was perfect. I wish I could rerun all the highlights of the day. Probably the best part was the sealing ceremony in the Salt Lake Temple. It was so spiritual and I wish that everyone could have witnessed it.

Well, you know me. I haven't done my homework yet but I will! I have spent about 3 hours trying to get our new/used car cleaned for our up coming event (Gracie's wedding on the 24th!). Actually it's my in-laws car and we decided to buy it since Marge passed away in March, Tom went to a care center. So it's our "go to the cabin" car.
BUT I just had to post this picture of Gracie in Kenya about 2 years ago. It makes me happy every time I see it and realize what a fabulous daughter I have. In fact I have 3 fabulous sons too. So, that's where a lot of my time and effort goes too and it should. After all, being a successful mother is one of life's blessings. I know I can't pat myself on the back yet because this life isn't over for me but so far they have turned out better than I ever could have dreamed. Lucky lucky me.

Just had to post these 2 very quick as I've got a midterm in a few days to really get busy studying for. Cliff and Lorien got married on Novemeber 1st in Baltimore in a beautiful little and old chapel on the McDaniels College campus. It was so romantic and fun to be there to see this happen. The ceremony was very romantic and they had a nice reception following. The cake was actually vegan and I think it's probably the best I've ever had...sooooo delicious!
Then we went through the Washington D. C. Temple with Gracie and Dave. Grace was going through for the first time. I'm so glad we were able to experience that. It was very special also.
