In the process of going through old boxes, we ran across many interesting items...an old recorder I used for college classes, sorority t-shirts, ceramics that my mom made me when I was a kid, and a box full of purple and white wedding decor from our wedding in 1998.
The "old school" mini tape recorder was a huge hit with my girls as they recorded themselves and then played it back in slow motion or in "chipmunk" voices. Kept them entertained for at least an hour and I can see many more days of fun ahead with that one.
The tape recorder was then put aside when the box of purple tulle, wedding bells and bows was opened. Whispering began and the sneaky girls were quickly grabbing items and running out the front door. Back in for more items and then back out again. They were busy for about 45 minutes when they finally came in and announced that they has remade our wedding for us...in the front yard...for everyone to see! I have to admit, it really did look like someone was setting up for a wedding! Here is what we saw when we opened the front door...
(Don't mind the little one in the robe, hat and rubber boots - doesn't look like the boots even match!
She's been sick all week and was thrilled to finally get to go outside for a little bit.)
I hope the neighbors aren't mad that we didn't send out invites ;)
Girls - Thank you for giving our wedding decorations even more wonderful memories. You always know how to make us smile!
PS - Maybe I should use them to help decorate the weddings that I help coordinate. Lol
