The Party's Over

It's Monday morning and the kids have been in Antigua since Saturday. My feet still hurt!
The wedding was absolutely wonderful!!
Alicia looked like a princess in her gown, and all the girls, including Keri, were beautiful attendants. David was so nervous that he needed Advil before the ceremony. The girls' limo was late because the driver had a little fender bender with a stone wall on her Dad's property. At 6:34pm, David was freaking out, saying the ceremony should have started, where was she, what was happening???? Kind of funny, actually.
The pastor was great, and the ceremony was very nice, very spiritual without being too religious. Mike's brother, Jimmy, played the bagpipes during the cocktail hour, and our side went crazy! I told Alicia's parents that it was one of our traditions.
At the reception, her side really didn't get up on the dance floor much, which was fine; it wasnt' too big and our family and friends filled it. For 2 kids who said they don't dance, David and Alicia were up there a LOT! The love just shines from them, and we were so blessed to be there to share it.
The buffet was delicious, but a lot of people couldn't identify what was on there-it looked so fancy.
Anthony's Pier 9's staff could not have done a better job. They looked like Secret Service with their earpieces and walkie-talkies. Everything we wanted was done before we knew we wanted it. There was even a suite for the bridal party with a private bathroom. All locked up so our stuff was safe.
Alicia's little sister told Keri she's her new "Sissie" now. So Keri didn't just acquire 1 new sister, she's got 2!
I can finally concentrate on quilty things. My machine is leaving on Wednesday for an upgrade. I figure that it'll come home about a week after surgery, and I'll be ready.
Have a great day!!! I know I will.
