Grace Lutheran Church is where Harbor's Uptown site meets on Sunday evenings. They let us use their sanctuary for the service. This is the dessert table in the fellowship hall.
These are the LOVELY flowers that Amy Veerman had delivered for the reception. They were perfect - fall-ish and beautiful. (Amy, that was one of the short ones. The best part was these huge maroonish green leaves that they wrapped around the inside of the vase. So pretty. One lady commented, "Those weren't just thrown together.") Not a great picture - they were more vibrant than this shows.
One day, weeks before the service, Olivia was cutting and gluing paper and made this little placemat. I loved it. So I asked her and the Kay girls to make a bunch more to put on the tables at the reception. I thought they were fun and colorful and Olivia loved having somthing she made there.
Chad practicing. I think Mike enjoyed picking the music best. We did two traditional hymns - Come Thou Fount and Holy, Holy, Holy. These have been some of the first hymns we taught our kids - so they could sing along. Chad also played two of his tunes that have become particularly special to us. You can listen to them at soundandshape.com. Click on the sound and shape radio link in the upper right corner - Isaiah 12 and Awake, Awake are the second two songs. (By the way, that's my lady like girl in the pink tights in the back. Apparently she needs the charm school my mother sent me to.)
Kay cuties. Maggie (far right) was the age Greta is now when I first met her.
Who invited Oliver?
The fun continued as the Kays stayed the night and we messed around on Saturday - including a little In and Out burger and the seals in La Jolla.
This was right before an aggressive sea gull came and snatched Joseph's burger away. Committed murder in my heart toward that sea gull. Poor Buddy.

We have had an eyeful lately.
