The only part of the day that was a little less awesome was the fact that I was sick. I'd been home sick from work for a few days, and really wasn't feeling well Saturday morning. For the whole day, I was pretty drugged up with cold medicine. Luckily, you can't tell from the pictures!
Mark and I in gingerbread form, courtesy of Aunt Johna - we got sent home with this giant cupcake because there was so much else for dessert. We're currently looking for people to help us eat it, any volunteers?!
The hall before everyone got there.
The men (Jeff, Uncle Mike, Mark and Dad) stayed to help serve the food. I was especially glad that Mark and my Dad could be there to see everything as I opened gifts!
Getting ready to open gifts.
Our gift assembly line - Michelle would hand me a gift/take the wrapping paper. Laura was collecting the cards and writing down who gave what. Melissa was collecting the bows for a hat. Even with all the help, it takes a long time to open everything!
This was one of the gifts from the bridesmaids - an afghan Laura made for us. I'll have to post a close-up of this at some point - it's covered in hearts. So talented!
Our littlest guest during the gifts - the underside of the table was clearly more interesting than all my kitchen tools!
