love is in the air

we celebrated lots of weddings last year.  1 sister, and 3 cousins.  along with that came lots of bridal showers.  always fun to celebrate with the lovely brides-to-be.

this year it's a bit slower, but just as special. we have 2 weddings coming up; one in the spring and one in the summer.
this sunday sofia and i went to irvine to celebrate the bridal shower of cousin amanda.
amanda and nate are getting married in tucson in the spring.  aunt beth came into town to help shower her daughter with food, family and wonderful gifts.

now i have to confess that i was not on the planning committee for this shower.  i just got to be a guest, (and i made rice too).
we had chili, winter salad, corn pudding, chips and homemade salsa and fruit with pumpkin dip.

i'm sorry i didn't get a picture of the desserts.  especially the peanut butter chocolate pie, or the strawberry cake.  it was all delicious.
one thing i love about visiting the godlewski house in irvine is their a-ma-zing coffee maker.  it makes the best coffee.

we played a few games.
best marriage advice. loved what everyone wrote.
the cottonball game.  something i remember playing at the many showers i went to with my mom as a kid.  have you seen this?  you are blindfolded and you have to scoop up cotton balls with a spoon and put them in the bowl.  but when you are blindfolded it's hard to tell If you are getting any.
well, aunt becky didn't seem to have a problem.  she won.

then it was gift time.

handmade aprons.


a frog sponge holder (it's a family thing).

the kids never stood still long enough to get a good picture.
but these kids did. (the cousins)
and here's one of the lovely aunts.
i loved this one of "the girls in pink", sofia, grandma and kendall.
what a fun day.

Very fun! Wish I could have been there, but we're still trying to get everything settled after the move.
