Jesus sent in money marked "JUST FOR MARY"...so we were able to find a pretty little dress for Mary to wear for the wedding. =)
Kimberly did Mary's hair in a very detailed crown braid...which took about 45 mins. to do. =) Kimberly made up a story to tell to Mary while she did her hair. Mary was VERY patient and sat very still. =) ~
Jesus really helped us by finding the perfect blue bow tie which perfectly matched the groomsmens' bow ties. Thankfully Elijah already had the rest of his dressy clothes with him, and U. Charlie and A. Yoli got him his nice shoes for his recent birthday.~
We went ahead and got Noah a matching bow tie.
As Noah was getting ready for the wedding, 2 buttons popped off of his white shirt. =( So, Thankfully someone got me a needle and thread and I sewed his buttons back on with him WEARING his shirt...MINUTES before the wedding was to start! =) ~
So we ran to a cheap store and bought a brown little basket for $4.00, Phillip spray painted it white for me, and then I made the pink and white bow and tied it on it. =) ~
That meant ...that I didn't know where to tell them to go and stand when they got up front.
So, I just told E and M that when they got up front, just to TURN AROUND and face the congregation. =D~
So, they got up front and turned around and stood there and everyone loved it. =) Later my dear friend Caro helped them to move MORE up front, so the bride and her Father could stand where they were standing. =) ~
Since Jesus REALLY helped them and they did a great job in the wedding....the Monday after the wedding, I made this Choc. Chip / M&M Cookie cake for a special dessert for that evening to celebrate!!! =)
I don't have time to type out what all I did so here's the link where I got the idea and where I got the icing recipe.
However, I made my cake MUCH smaller than she did.
I only made three 3" cookies for the base of my cake and then the rest of my cookies were about 2" and I arranged them 5 cookies per layer.
We also added extra cream and less p. sugar to the icing recipe, which made it less sweet.
And since I was making this for our Little Elijah and Mary I added the M&M's to my cookies for fun color. =)~
The "Fam" was GLAD I had made it. =D
I loved how FUN it turned out. =) ~
So, that Monday afternoon...we ordered some cheap pizza, and packed a little picnic and went to the park.~
Since it's turned pretty chilly...U. Charlie gave Phillip a nice coat that keeps him very warm.
Daddy brought Mary back from the exploring....and took her to a playground.
I thought they looked so cute walking together! =) ~
Thank you, Dear Jesus, for your help with the wedding.~
