It's been a busy time here in the Woolen Rabbit household. Planning and keeping Ashley's bridal shower a surprise has been a big part of the busy around here.We actually had planned to have her shower almost a month ago, but a girl named "Irene" had different ideas...aggh! I can't tell you how I labored over do we cancel or do we have it, but in the end concerns for everyone's safety won out and thank goodness it did because Irene certainly left her mark on the North Country up here.
So...Sunday was the big day. Ashley knew she was having a shower, she just didn't know when. I am sure that she was starting to wonder if it really was going to happen. She says she was totally surprised, but hmm...she was a bit dressed up. I guess she figured that every weekend until the wedding she should not go out in her usual flannel shirt and jeans...LOL
My oldest daughter Stacey did most of the planning, which included a few fun games. This one is a question form that Stacey had Brian fill out and then Ashley had to guess the answers. For every incorrect answer, Ashley had to eat a big piece of bubblegum.
We played a few more games, had a lovely luncheon and oohed and aahed over the lovely gifts that she received, but I think the part that Ashley loved the most was being surrounded by so many of the women friends and family that she loves....her own community of "sister bees".
The strongest and sweetest songs
yet remain to be sung...
Stay tuned for the second part next month....It's going to be a fun wedding for sure!
