Yesterday Lou and I took a ride to Lancaster County, PA to pick up a piece of furniture that he had built for Diane of Basket Accessories as a display piece in the Akron shop. After 18 years of selling merchandise for those who love and collect Longaberger baskets, Diane is closing the retail shop at the Akron. The Intercourse store will remain open. Check the website www.basketaccessories.com for winter hours at that store or to shop online for painted lids, liners, protectors, Amish wrought iron and more.

Received this photo in my email today...Can't believe how much he has grown. I watch him one day a week and from week to week my darlin' boy is just doing so many new things. He just must be the most amazing baby in the world. Funny how you do forget things about your own babies until you have a grandchild. Last week I started singing Christmas songs to him and I do believe Away in The Manger is his favorite.
We had our family dinner yesterday...hosted by the newlyweds...and they baked a ham, combined "root vegetables" potatoes, parsnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, with scallions and rosemary, and a green bean dish. They were able to use many of the wedding and shower gifts. We all had a wonderful time and did get to see a preview of some of the wedding photographs form the photographer.

This dinner was simple...call for salad and pizza. I did bake a 1234 cake for dessert.
The "men" played pool and we all entertained the baby.

His brother was his Best Man and 2 longtime friends were his Groomsmen.
Her sister was her Matron of Honor and her cousins were her Bridesmaids.
Meagan's Uncle Ron, her Godfather, married the couple. He became a minister online.
The photos I've put on the blog are all from my camera. I don't yet have any photographs of the ceremony itself, or of everyone in their gowns and tuxedos. Don't even have any of my dear hubby with his daughter. But I do have some of the guests sending me photos from their cameras so as I receive those, I'll be able to post them.
she baked the cake at home and decorated it on Saturday morning at the barn.
The celebration was truly a family affair.
Erik's Mom made the Groom's Cake...Star Trek Theme.
Erik's sister put together a slide show of the Bride and Groom
from when they were babies, to when they met in high school, to vacationing this summer.
One special guest was the Art Teacher, Ms Mand,
who intoduced the couple all those years ago while they were still in high school.
The barn was decorated with thousands of lights, grapevine garland and berries.
The ceremony was to be outside...with the Catoctin Mountains in the background...
but a rainy day made that impossible. The ceremony had to be held in the barn itself.
The hydrangeas from my garden were assembled with curly willow branches in jars.
Center piece on the Bridal Table with the crystal wine glasses.
Flowerpots and Candles outside of the barn door.
Thank goodness I was able to keep them alive all summer.
On Thursday morning I did notice some empty spots in the pots
so I dug up some plants out of the garden to fill in the spots
We had to pop the tents outside the door on Saturday morning...the day of the Wedding...
because there were showers and rain coming our way.
We had many comments about rain on your Wedding Day being a
blessing. If that's the case...the couple are really and truly blessed.
