I'm afraid to say that I have not accomplished much on the knitting front. Eric's sweater has not grown an inch, even Sweetie's socks have not changed much from last week, but I have accomplished just over one row on my lace. That's a fair amount (I won't call it a lot yet!) of knitting, but it's not photograph-worthy.

That's why there will be flowergirl pictures this week.

Our friend Holly got married this weekend, to her high-school sweetheart Tom. They met at a Latin convention. (Awww!)

It was a good wedding. I don't usually praise weddings so highly; most of the time weddings are nice at best. But this was a good wedding. Oddly enough, the highlight of the wedding was during the reception. Holly asked the swing band to play a song just for the married couples, and all the married couples were instructed to dance. Every so often the announcer would ask some of the couples to leave the dance floor, based on how long they had been married, the shortest leaving first, leaving the long-married couples dancing on. I initially thought it was corny (I'm sure I've read about this in a bridal magazine somewhere), but it was awesome! Eric and I were tickled to make it past the first "round" when people married less than 5 years were asked to leave, but we were in shock when they asked everyone married less than 30 years to leave, and there were at least 20 couples still on the dance floor!!! Whoah! The last two couples were married 56 and 57 years, and the rest of us hooted and hollered in amazement and joy.

Speaking of dancing,

We also had a couple fabulous friends come visit. Here's Sweetie's shot of them:

Four-year-old at a wedding with a digital camera can lead to lots of interesting photos. This one came out rather well, but we also have a series of shots of some guy's elbow...?

Here we have the Colorado College alumni photo, featuring Sweetie, Eric, me, Kara, Christine, and Holly:

At the end of the night, we were all feeling tired, and it was good.

Was she really that tall when I last saw her? She can't possibly have grown in 2 weeks, right?
She hasn't grown all that much since you left, but a floor-length dress made her look very, very tall.
Oh she looks beautiful in that dress! You all look very lovely dressed up though. :)
