Chelsea's Bridal Shower

This has been MUCH anticipated by the bride to be.  She has been so curious about what I knew and didn't know about what would be happening.  Truth was, I didn't know a lot.  Our daughter-in-law, Emily, planned it and executed it so very well with the help of the other bridesmaids and other friends from church.  It was a labor intensive kind of event even before today.  Emily made the most adorable decorations!

And this leads us to the food.....

You get the idea....
It was mostly sweet and ALL good.

It was wonderful to have so many friends and family members in 
attendance.  Chelsea's great-aunt Betty came over from York while her
Aunt Bev drove down from Central PA.
So many friends from work and church came to celebrate.

There was the crazy game of making a wedding dress from toilet paper.
This is a tradition with all of the local Bridal Showers we've attended.

Sarah gets all done up.

She even had a little ring bearer which made us all think she could win.

Chelsea ponders the ladies in their dresses.
It was her job to choose a winner.

The winner!

And then it was time to open gifts.

And then the evening ended with prayer.
Such a special time.
Such wonderful friends.

It certainly was a "labor intensive" event. The food looks totally elegant. In the last picture,Chelsea looks so beautiful with her eyes cast down so demurely. How's the fiancee' doing? All knitted together?
