Girls just want to have fun!!!!

Well, I got my camera back! I'm sure the way I was carrying on and on about my camera, some of you might have been confused or hood-winked into thinking that I had some invaluable, artistic, professional photos on that camera.
No such luck!!!
But don't I wish!?!
However, thanks to my adoring, er...adorable daughter, SonMarie, for bringing it with her when she came to "the edge of the prairie" on business today!!
I did get pictures of Stacey's Bridal Shower at SonMarie's home. Let me just say that if you think you are a good photographer, just try to take pictures while laughing 'til there are tears in your eyes and your mouth full of scrumptious cupcake!

That's my excuse for the poor quality of some of these photos!
or maybe I was just too excited to take enough time I obviously needed to get it right! Remember me? The one with ADD who always is in a hurry? That could be the problem I suppose.

I will attempt to narrate quickly through the photos posted here.

If you are related to Stacey you will undoubtedly be intensely fascinated with these and if you are not related...too bad for you...Stacey is a wonderful person to be related to---all things being relative!!!

We hung the aprons we had received, in the mail, outside as a welcome banner!

At this point, HayBee pointedly remarked that every member of Stacey's family had been frantically trying to locate Stacey and that sister, Baby Lisa, had been left standing in Grandma's driveway!
Oh, good grief!!!

Maybe brother Z isn't doing anything and really wants to take a 45 minute drive!!!
In fact, I'm almost sure he does want to drive Baby Lisa! Sure. No problema!!

These two photos aren't good but they do show the clothesline of aprons!

As soon as we filled our plates we began to hear the whole drama of "How Stacey can't be found, Baby Lisa got left behind and it must be Mom's fault" told to us by HayBee...

and Mom, TK,----We forgot to tell her that "all abuse is heaped on the m.o.b."!

In our family, one chaotic blunder-filled mix-up is good for hours of laughs!!!

Aunt LeLe joining in on the hilarity!
We're a funny, funny family! Now you may ask
"Funny ha-ha or funny peculiar?" and I would just say...
"yes ma'am!"

Even Baby B thought it was funny!

Sister-in-law 2 B

Sister-out-law 2 B...(her description, not mine!)

After everyone arrived we moved the apron line indoors!

Aunt TAM and Sweet Momma Ruth enjoying her cuppa!!
See the aprons above their heads?

Picture time!

(I know this is an awful picture! It was even worse, I cut myself out of it!)

Stacey and sis-n-law 2 B!

All right, I have no idea what this is about!
Cue the music..."Sisters, Sisters there were never such adoring sister!"
(If you want to be scared, click on this to enlarge!)

Much better!

LeLe, TK and Jammie...saying goodbye!!!

And now that you've seen the photos I bet you are wondering what the big "deal-eo" was, right?

The only picture we didn't get was me sliding off the bench when one of my darling nieces forgot
"THE RULE" and stood up without warning! No harm done though...I've got all kinds of padding!!

Love you much-ly, my little chocolate covered bon-bons!!!
