Dec 6: This week is all about my friends' wedding on Friday night. I am doing the flowers for them. Tonight I obliterated a Christmas tree to make the 30 swags for the pews.
Dec 7: Allen & Shaun had a little party tonight to help decorate their "tree". They asked us to bring tacky ornaments. I won the prize. I found these hideous shiny, glittery horses heads with a 6" feathers. They were cheap enough I got one for each of the guys - one in pink and one in green.
Dec 8: Today I almost forgot to pick up the leaves & grasses for the wedding bouquets.
Dec 9: Rehearsal and decorating the chapel.
Dec 10: Janel & Phil's wedding day! It took all day, but I got the flowers done and she was very happy with the way they turned out. Whew!
It was a beautiful, God-honoring ceremony.
Dec 11: And thus we've come full circle in a year of Bear.
Dec 12: So, last week Big Mean Kitty died. Kitty had a full, loved life. I am not sure how quickly Diesel will recover but we're trying out a new toy. The fox was a gift from Shaun's mom. D spent 2 weeks at Allen & Shaun's this summer when I was traveling and was well taken care of.
