Well Sarah's wedding is only days away. A little over a week ago Laurie took Sarah to town a couple days in a row. On the first day they spent time looking for modest dresses. This is supposed to be an informal small wedding for a few family members and friends. They found absolutely nothing that was modest. So they took a second day and looked at patterns to make a dress. Again a very long search to find something that would be modest. They finally settled on a pattern from Germany in the costume section. Picked out some very pretty material to go with it and then we celebrated the Sabbath.
A refreshing time to get our bearings before we begin the final preparations for the wedding.
Sunday morning was upon us before we wanted it to begin. I settled in for a double work day at the farm and Laurie began to get things around for a marathon of sewing.
So we loaded up the van and headed into town.
The first stop was the Paper Place for plates, napkins and what-nots
Sarah's choice of plates
This is not going to happen. I will become the fashion police and put my foot down. We will not have kitty plates for a wedding.
Let's just color coordinate with Sarah's wedding colors.
Now, make sure and double check mom's list.
After a couple of stores it is time for some lunch and letting go of excess energy. We found a nice park, ate lunch and then had some play time.
Michaelle here had so much energy.
OK Esther, it's your turn. Don't worry, I'll catch you. Trust me!
Sarah spent time helping the little ones have some fun
Hey a tunnel slide. Let's go. Michaelle don't hit your head at the top like you did at the park in Redwood Falls.
I still have some more energy let's go over there.
Now it's time to head out to the Fabric Ware house for patterns and material for the girls.
OK, let's start picking out some material.
Meanwhile back at the pattern book table we are still having some trouble finding the perfect pattern
The little ones became bored but were able to find something to entertain themselves for awhile.
Over all it was a fantastic trip with everyone involved. The girls found some beautiful material and dress pattern that would work for everyone.
At the end of the day everyone was exhausted but more excited about the coming wedding or perhaps about having new dresses.
Stay tuned for more pictures of dresses and wedding preparations.
