Tuesday morning she took me out for a manicure/pedicure! What a fun break that was!
Hubby's brother and his wife arrived next and then the four of us headed to the airport to welcome their dad, who will turn 84 this year. He loved his reception!
I made a fajita bar that night and they all came over from their hotel for dinner.

After dinner, my dad, my sister and her friend all flew in.
We had a fun evening visiting and I served key lime pie because it is so Floridian. : )
My brother and his family flew in late Tuesday night, so we didn't get to see them until the next morning when I had a brunch for everyone at 11:00 because they were still on west coast time. : )
By then there were 18 of us!
This was the FIRST TIME EVER that our home was filled with people who are related to us on both sides of our family! My heart was so full! What a blessing it was to have almost all of our loved ones in our home at once!
Then I pretty much declared that I needed all the estrogen in the room to help me pull off the canopy, which was still unfinished! LOL
Everyone pitched in to help! Even the guys!
There were about 10 of us working on it at times! I love my family!!!
Around 4 we all parted ways. Some of us headed to the wedding rehearsal and others to their hotels.
I'm happy to say that the canopy got finished an hour beforehand! Hooray!
The only problem was that we didn't have time to set it up before the rehearsal started. : ) So, it looked like this
About this time, it started getting real! Ahhh!!!!
More to come on that and the big day!
