More Wedding Plans

Here is our little ringbearer. Jackson was so excited when his suit came in the mail. He seemed kind of proud to try it on. He says it is his "outfit for Aunt Shawn's wedding". We just hope he cooperates with us that night. He is 2 1/2 after all....keeping our fingers crossed , and the bribes will be in my purse.
Dapper little dude. We found some cute brown suede shoes to go with his suit.

I printed off the wedding programs and folded them and ran them through the
sewing maching with a zig-zag stitch for a decorative touch. We like things to
be unique. I don't know if you can see the stitching very well.
I sewed a banner for the drinks table using the fabrics we made into the birdseed bags. In addition to iced tea and lemonade, we are having a large wash tub full of ice and canned drinks.

So the banner will add a fun touch to that area. And we can use it again for spring decorating or picnics.
I have been collecting all kinds of old and not so appealing candlestick holders. I am painting them Heirloom White. There is a large stone fireplace with a rustic wood mantle at the site , and we will saturate it with candles on the mantle and inside the fireplace. We plan to cover a plywood letter W in moss and place on the mantle as well.

I am not getting anything productive done today, and probably won't for the next few. I went to the doctor yesterday and found out I have pneumonia and strep, so she told me to rest for the next 5 days to avoid the hospital. There is no time for hospital now. She gave me a sinus cocktail shot,antibiotics, some steroid nose spray, prednisone dose pack, and some heavy duty cough medicine, and I do feel better today--much less wheezing and I can breathe. Now if I can quit coughing.
Well, that's all for today. Hopefully I will recover quickly, because I have my daughter's wedding shower to attend this weekend. Stay well...

First - I am sorry you are sick. You got hit hard with pneumonia and strep at the same time. Glad to hear you are feeling better today.
Jackson looks very handsome in his new suit. :) Yes - when you are dealing with little ones, you never know what they will do! :) You have really come up with some great ideas for the wedding. Be sure and take lots of pictures - You know we bloggers like pictures. :-D.
Get well soon.

Sorry you aren't feeling so well. Sounds like you've had more than your share. All those steriods may make you really want to get up and get something done but remember that rest has been ordered by the doctor! Rest is healing you know. That little man looks adorable in his new suite. Whatever he does will be adorable as well and make the wedding memorable, I'm sure. Hope you are feeling better really soon!
