Michelle's Bridal Shower
Grandpa drove to Randalls. After the food and gifts were loaded into the van, Denise
drove to Ridgedale where Becky arrived shortly by bus from school. Then on to the
Gary and Pirjo Wuollet home. Pirjo is from Finland so the home was decorated with
lots of Finnish decorations. A large himmeli slowly turned from the heat created by lots
of candles on the coffee table. The tree was decorated with tinsel, straw ornaments and
some American decorations.
In the meantime, Grandpa brought Steven and John to the Rogers school where John was in a concert which Grandpa videoed. John plays the trombone. After the concert they went to Cabela's.
Back to the shower. Lots of people. Singing and then gift opening. She received a
wide variety inc. a roaster oven from the ladies of the Elk River congregation. She opened an 8 place setting of dishes, silver ware, canisters, towels, bedding and more.
Then the picture taken with the cake. Delicious food, a wide variety of salads, open
face sandwiches, bars. You know, the usual good food.
We had to wait to leave until all the guests left to start loading everything into the van. In the meantime, Wayne had arrived from his last job which was in Indiana. So it was late getting home and crawling into a comfy bed at 3 a.m.
