Congratulations to Amanda and Derek!!

This morning I helped Mom make a couple of different kinds of coffee cake for breakfast.  After we ate, I started ironing our wedding clothes.  Ryan put the frame together for the cross stitch piece I did for the couple and then I got it framed.  I changed and did my hair and we all ran out the door.  My cousin Amanda got married to Derek today.  The wedding ceremony was really nice, with co-Maids of Honor.  Amanda has 2 younger sisters and they were both Maids of Honor.  After the ceremony, we had some time to kill.  We went to Walmart for snacks for Ryan, Robert, and Dad, and I looked for different shoes since my feet were hurting.  I found a couple of pairs that I liked, but nothing fit.  Then we went to the mall and walked around there a bit.  Mom bought some stuff at JoAnn Fabrics, and I decided to go look in Payless.  I found a pair of shoes that were the same color as my original ones and they didn’t make my feet hurt.  I wore them out of the store.  LOL  Then it was off to the casino where the reception was being held.  There were beatiful decorations.  Open bar during cocktail hour from 5-6 and then wine and beer after that.  The dinner was a wonderful buffet with tons of good food.  They had a Grand March, 1st dance for Amanda & Derek, Father/Daughter dance, Mother/Son dance, Anniversary Dance (for all the married couples, and then they kept dismissing until there was 1 couple left that had been married the longest – 51 years tomorrow for them), and Dollar Dance.  During the dollar dance, I danced with Derek and Ryan danced with Amanda.  And then the dance floor was open to everyone.  Robert had a great time dancing with Mommy as his dance partner most of the night.  I did dance one slow song with Ryan (they didn’t play many slow songs, and Ryan’s not much of a dancer).  Rick and I both took lots of pictures, and Robert took quite a few with his camera as well.  I’m sure he probably got some good shots.  We finally headed home around 11.  Robert fought the sleepy bug in the car, but he finally crashed, and he was OUT.  He didn’t wake up when we got home and the lights were on in the car.  He didn’t wake up when I carried him inside and upstairs.  He didn’t wake up when I got his pants and undies off to put on his diaper.  Of course, I’m probably going to sleep good as well when I go up in a little bit.
