Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!  This is a picture of my dad having fun at Disneyland.  We lived in Los Angeles and went to Disneyland a lot.  This picture was taken in 1968, so I was 6 and my sister was about 3 1/2. That's Dad driving the yellow car with me in the passenger seat.  If you look closely, you can see that I'm holding on to the dashboard with one hand and my sunglasses with the other.  We are about to take off and I know that my dad is going to drive that little car as fast as it will go! Ha ha!!  Mom is following behind in the blue car with my sister.  She is so small you can barely see her there in the passenger seat!

Alex & Laura's Wedding

Congratulations to my nephew and his new bride!

Alexander W. Elrod and Laura M. Sanders were married in a beautiful ceremony at the Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth, Texas on Saturday, June 1st, 2013.

Laura looked stunning in a beautiful flamenca style gown of ivory lace with an asymmetrical hem of fluttering tiers and cap sleeves, designed by Va Et Vien exclusively for BHLDN.

I took this photo on the night of the wedding rehearsal outside the Marty Leonard Chapel.  The architect was E. Fay Jones, who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright.

    This is the view from the choir loft.

And this is the view when you look up from inside the chapel.

The wedding reception was held at The Woman's Club of Fort Worth.  This is a view of the courtyard.

The guest book table.

The bridesmaid's bouquets were used in the table centerpieces.

             Beautiful table decorations.

There was a buffet of delicious
hors d'oeuvres.

The beautiful wedding cake.  It was delicious too!

First Dance

Music was by
the Texas Gypsies.

               Everyone had a great time dancing to the  fabulous music of the Texas Gypsies!                                                                                                                

Here's wishing them all the love and happiness in the world and congratulations on their marriage!

              Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. - 1 Corinthians 13:7
