Happy 60th Birthday Dad!

My dad's 60th Birthday is today! He's the guy on the left with the moustache that curls on the ends. He's had that as long as I can remember. We're having a big bash for him at my parents tomorrow night and we'll be giving him a special gift... Wait he might just read this so I won't give it away, but I'll try to take some pictures at the party.

My co-worker Janelle just had her baby... within the last hour. We just talked to her on the phone and she named it Adelaide Marie and it was a girl. They are going to call it Addie for short. I put my hat in for today as the birthdate as it was my dad's b-day. And the funny part is he has an aunt with the same first name.
Well the countdown has begun! We are only 8 days from the wedding. Last night I finished packing bags for the next two weeks. I'll be back to Rapid on Thurs. to buy groceries and get my nails done, but I don't really want to have to go back to the house if I don't have to. I'm going to my parents tonight and Paul will go to his bachelor party tonight and come down sometime tomorrow so he can be there for the party.
I'll try to post from my parents this week so I'll be in touch. I use the sewing laptop when I'm there so I don't take over their computers. I'm taking my laptop on the honeymoon so we can search for places to go when we get to MO, but I won't be reading blogs... I'll try to post wedding photos for those who are interested in seeing them. We're planning to go to Springfield and Branson MO with a stop in Kansas and a few other towns along the way. We'll be gone a week, so we hope to just see the country side and enjoy a long road trip.

Wow, time is fast approaching! Are you getting the jitters yet?

I'm thinking you're like me...not getting the jitters about the marriage; but possibly about the whole wedding part of it. I was so afraid of freaking out and having a panic attack when all those people turned to look at me. Can you believe I actually was telling people to promise not to look at me? Yeah they just smiled, nodded and said...sure.

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for you!!

Please do post pics! I'm sure you are going to have such wonderful memories of these days! I'm very excited for you--I just had my 8th anniversary about a week ago--and I still love to look at the photos and the video. It's truly a special day!
