I really enjoyed playing the part of the photographer out in the open instead of hiding in the shadows. I didn't have to participate in the games themselves, but smiled and snapped away with my camera lens. I am tired, but in a great way. Oh, and the couple are going to get married in Sierra Leone because the grandparents and his parents/family are from there! I would love to see that! I love cultural based weddings! I love seeing how different cultures celebrate different big occasions.
So, that was the biggest part of my day. The boys spent their day studying for Bible Bowl and playing video games (and napping). We met them at church for service at 5:30. We did some tidying up at home to prepare for tomorrow, which will be my actual preparation for the week day. I'll be home all day on a Sunday no less! Weird!
Here's a few pics of the day.
|I won this whole jar of giant deluxe Hershey kisses! How? Math! Guess how many make up one layer, multiplied by how many layers there might be and voila! 72 kisses to exact!|
|Party favors to bring home.|
|Keturah and I's favorite treat!|
|Sweet older ladies catching up because they haven't seen each other in years.|
|We started off with a prayer circle.|
|Sweet Rhoda nad her sweet daughter Joyce, the bride to be.|
|Joyce and her two best friends.|
|One game was about finding the "dress" made of toilet paper. Adorable!|
|Second cake had beautiful icing flowers on it.|
|Photo booth time! Keturah with Grandma!|
|Our gift for Joyce, and she was very excited about it! She even said she might have to break them out and use them before the wedding, lol.|
|Gorgeous runner from India made up of worn out silk clothes in India. Joyce was in tears because of the sentiments the giver wrote in the card.|
|Mother, mother, daughter, daughter.|
