The Wedding!!!!

was a BEAUTIFUL event and a WONDERFUL day!

I'm sure that's not what you're actually here for, but...

indulge me for just a few pics...okay???  lol

Here are both of my beautiful daughters putting on their make-up after our morning at the beauty shop getting the hair done.
The bride's cake while they were setting up.

A couple of "teaser" pics by the professional photographer.

Can you guess where they are headed for the honeymoon?  Yep, they are DISNEY bound!

We had a hot chocolate bar at the reception for everyone to enjoy while we were having some pictures made.  Here are some of the stirrers (is that a word?  ha!) that I made.  Never fear, someone fixed them up nicely before the reception.  I just did this quickly so I could get a pix.

They are super-easy to make.  Push the "Old-Fashioned Peppermint Stick Candy" into a large marshmallow.  Next, dip the marshmallow into melted white chocolate, then into sparkly sprinkles. 

We had a few left.  So today, I took them to school turned in this direction and they became "snow pops" for the students to eat as we were learning about polar bears! 
You know how we teachers are, we're always thinking of SOMETHING to use EVERYTHING for in the classroom!!!  ;-)

Now, that the wedding is over, it's time to turn to thoughts of another kind of love...VALENTINE'S DAY.
