Tat Days Post!!! Finally!!!

If you read the Tat Days Post at Celtic Dreamweaver Sherry's Blog, then you got to see some of our initial visit. After Sherry got here and we slaved over shuttles and such, Georgia and Richard Seitz arrived. Oh, we had fun! There was much talk, laughter, painting and merriment. For dinner, we went to eat at my favorite South Knoxville restaurant, King Tut's Egyptian Grill. Georgia and Sherry got to be Tut-ettes.

And Georgia Belle made the mistake of ordering "Chicken to Go".

We shared the Egyptian and Vegetarian samplers (except adventuresome Raymond who had grilled chicken). Then we had basbousa (a little semonlina cake with sauce over it) for dessert. Yummy yum! Look! I have tatting in my lap!

After a great meal, we went home, slept and got up the next morning to head to Tat Days! Arrival was a blur of hugs, hugs laughter, more hugs, and seeing sweet familiar faces once again!

Oh, and I have no idea why Hope and I were staring at the ceiling. I think we were acting stuck-up. Look at that hummingbird on her derriere!

Before I get into updating things here, I'm posting a "quickie" of the wedding. It actually happened! Raymond and/or I didn't chicken out, the weather held out, we had a legitimate officiant, rings went on fingers and everything!

First photo - a man trudging to his happy destiny. Heehee!

Next - the actual exchange of vows - no one told me I still had my sunglasses on. Whoops. It's probably a good thing, though, since I was on the verge of a migraine. Actually I look sort of like I'm about to throw up here. ;-)

The beautiful necklace, bracelet and earrings are a gift from Sherry Townsend. I felt very glamorous wearing them.

The big "sealed with a kiss" part...

Whew! It's official!

And the next picture which is self explanatory:

And (drumroll, please) THE BABY!!! Being held by my big brother, Rusty.
