Bridal Shower + Birthday Party = Great Day!

 Yesterday was one of those busy & blessed days ~ THE Man's side of the family combined our DD#1's bridal shower with THE Man's, & his brothers', dad's 86th birthday party. (And some football ;-D) This was the first time for our future Son-in-Law (SIL) to meet MANY of this side of the family ~ they demonstrated great mercy & didn't prank him too badly ~ they didn't want to scare him away. lol
Two of DD#1's cousins headed up the bridal shower ~ the festivities were all at one of her cousin's lovely country home, & the shower was outside on a gorgeous, crisp fall afternoon. All was lovely . . .
 yummy snacks. . .
 & blessed with gifts.
 One of the highlights of the party was "The Panty Poem" ~ we'd never heard (or seen) it before & it was SO cute & funny. 
 I have to say that some of the attendees were a little concerned that "E" had forgotten to take in her laundry when they first arrived, but then found out that there was a reason for the clothesline to be there. lol ~ that was funny all in itself. 

After the shower was over, we headed into the house for THE Man's dad's 86th birthday celebration. 

Can it be? . . . A second round of FOOD?! Why, of course ~ what's a party without more food?! 
And there was such a great crowd . . . 
Silly cousins playing behind Grandpa's back (some things never change) . . . 
 And even brothers getting in on the act . . . 
 There's nothing like family. What a great day.
 Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><
