But wait, I am getting ahead of myself. We have to start with Friday and the bridal shower. Moma and Daddy rented a phat (Amie's words) house in Blowing Rock so we could all stay together for the weekend and we invited the girls over for a party. Lorie loves accessories and we all got her something of the sort as a present.
|She busted her toe earlier in the week so she had to trade her cute boots in for some slippers while she opened gifts.|
|Leslie and Paul flew in from California on Thursday and Aunt Teresa drove over from the NC coast on Friday. It was awesome to have them here!|
|Amie organised this whole party and made the sweets for us to enjoy!|

The main activity for the evening was flower arrangements and bouquets. Mom and Lorie went with a friend to a whole sale florist that morning and bought tons of beautiful flowers. We laid them all out on the table and mom guided us as we made our own bouquets. It was pretty fun and they turned out to be perfect and exactly what Lorie had envisioned.
|Lorie' bouquet. Impressive, huh? My mom is the most talented lady to ever live.|
|Everyone working hard|
|We made 5 of these for the church and reception.|
