The Wedding Weeking

The girls came home for the March  21st weekend for the wedding of Caitie Osborne, our neighbor.  Jim didn't know Tessa was coming home so it was fun to see his face when she walked into the house.  I had told Jim I was going shoe shopping and went to the airport to get her!

Cali arrived home the next morning.  It was wonderful having both girls home and it was such a fun weekend.  Our house misses them and so do we.

Saturday was the wedding and the girls and I went over in the afternoon to help set up.  I was in charge of decorating the mantel where the ceremony would take place.

The bride was beautiful and the groom was handsome.  We love Rainer and are so excited for he and Caitie.  Rainer has joined us for the last several Christmas Eves and he is always a good sport!

I loved the charm with Mike's picture that was added to Caitie's bouquet.
The wedding and reception was held at The Foundry in Lake Oswego, a pretty venue right on the river.
It was fun being there with all the cul de sac crazies!

We love these people!  I love it when we are all back together!

The girls weren't home for long but we managed to fit a few card games in.  We played samba one night and I had the most amazing hand!  I was dealt 7 wildcards - no cheating!!  I t hen drew another wild card on my first draw!!  Figured it was worth documenting.  Don't think it will ever happen again.  What are the odds?
Cali informed us while she was home that she would be playing in their faculty/student basketball game at school the next week.  Since she hadn't played basketball since the 5th grade Jim insisted we all go out to the cul de sac and play a little 2 on 2 and practice shooting.

She wasn't as bad as we thought she might be:)!!
It was a fun but fast weekend and I was sad to send the girls back to Utah on Monday!  Before heading to the airport we met Jim for lunch at Pieology.  Hannah joined us too.  This picture  just makes my mommy heart happy!
