I took some serious heat today at lunch for not posting in a few days. This may or may not have come after I wise-cracked about Suzanne and Marian being slow, infrequent posters. Yeah, it's been a few days. So let's get on with it!
This weekend we went to Suzanne's wedding. She cleans up well, don't you think? :) Greg said she looked like a princess. Well said, mister.
Not very many kids were invited to the wedding, and certainly not many of Suzanne's students. (She was Stephanie's 2nd grade teacher.) So, the kids were very excited to be able to go.
Ahhh, don't they look cute?
What's that under her dress? Flip flops? Yup, cuz that's how Suzanne rolls. Her bride's maids wore black flip flops under their pretty purple dresses.
It's nice to see the dance lessons are paying off! Stephanie was definitely bustin' some moves on the dance floor. She and Greg had a little dance off toward the beginning of all the dancing.
Heather was a little shy about dancing at first, but eventually she warmed up to the idea of it. She required hand-holding at all times, though.
Mary Ann was kind enough to oblige in some hand-holding, kid group dancing.
Suzanne and Dustin left the traditional wedding cake behind in favor of cupcakes! Lots of people shouted for them to shove the cake in each others' faces. But they were really sweet about it.
Mary Ann caught the bouquet. There's a funny story here, scroll down.
Mary Ann is such a modest girl. As I've mentioned before in this post, it doesn't take much racy talk to send her into a full blush. So she catches the bouquet ~ even seemed to want the bouquet. Yay, Marry Ann. Then Dustin throws the garter. A relative of Suzanne's caught it. Then the DJ announces that it is custom in our city for the guy who caught the garter to put it on the girl who caught the bouquet. What? Sheer fear sets in her face, along with a little red. She's probably thinking right about now that if she shoves the bouquet into some unsuspecting hand of another single gal no one might notice. She's probably eyeing the closest exit. But no, being a good sport she giggles nervously and sits on the chair. The guy proceeds to put the garter on her...up high...on her thigh. The picture I have is of his hands up her skirt! Oh! I'm not posting that one because I don't want to totally embarrass her! On a positive note, the guy did introduce himself before feeling her up. Very gentlemanly, don't you think?
