Wedding Day is Over

They did it! My step-son and his fiance were married this past Saturday. YAY!!!! We have added another girl to the family. We girls are still out numbered, though. 5 girls, 7 boys. But there is another grandchild due in December. Maybe it will be a girl and we will shrink the gap.

They had planned and rehearsed the wedding to be outside in a beautiful courtyard, complete with an elegant water fountain. But as I suspected it might, it rained ALL day and late into the evening. And it was very chilly.  They decided to go to Plan B. It was moved into the reception hall (Did I mention Plan B was unrehearsed?) There were a few glitches and ad-libbed things. But all-in-all, it turned out to be a great event!

This is the Bride and Groom (plus the Maid of Honor). Aren't they cute?

This is the Groom's twin brother with yet another Bridesmaid.

Chatty helping the Bride. I guess now that she's part of the family I'm going to have to think of a name for her...hmmm...until I think of something better, we'll call her Chit-Chat.

Me with our youngest granddaughter. Her hair was beautiful just 3 minutes before this...she was extremely hot. Once her clothing was changed and she cooled off, she was up and running again.

Mr. Chat and I tripping the light fantastic!~We may not be Fred and Ginger. But at least we can still keep a beat while NOT falling down.

Welcome to our family, Chit-Chat!!!!

Blog Party

Blog Party
Ultimate Blog Party 2010
There's an amazing blog party going on. If you want to join in, just click the above link to join. Or click on the banner that I have posted on my sidebar. I think you should join in because there are lots of free prizes and give aways. Sounds fun, right? So take my hand and come with me to this wonderful party. I hate arriving at parties by myself. There's something very intimidating about going to a door alone.  I took a glimpse at the people over there and they look quite friendly. Don't wait too long and don't dawdle because I'll leave without you. I'll go alone....I ain't scared.

I'm suppose to introduce myself so I can easily get acquainted with everyone at this party. OK, well....My name is Debbie. Since that's a name from the 1950's and 1960's, you can easily gather that I'm no spring chicken. I have 1 daughter (Chatty) and 3 step-sons. It doesn't seem possible but my daughter will be 21 years old this year. Her brothers are in their mid-to-late 20's and have blessed us with 5 grandchildren. My husband (Mr. Chat) is a delivery driver for a popular foodservice company. He likes to fish, camp and work on landscapping. I'm a bookkeeper for 4 restaurants and 1 recreational dealership. I love to talk, visit old shoppes and historical towns, try to find the ultimate coffee shop, read and Blog. I like to meet new people. Did I mention that I love to talk? Anyway, that's me in a nut shell. As I re-read my intro, my life and I sound pretty boring. But I promise I do have my moments. At any given time AND without warning, I can cut loose and have a good time with the simplest things in life. I'm not a complicated person at all.

Yada-yada-yada. Now that that's out of the way, lets go look at the prizes and see if there's anything to eat.
