My extended family is a little complicated to describe, but here goes nothing. My Mom is an only child, but has a number of cousins. Her mother had 10 siblings. My Mom's cousins are sort of like sisters to her and therefore like Aunts to me. For many years we have been very close with my Mom's cousin Gail (pictured below with my Mom), who shares a house with Bev. Gail and Bev are very much part of our immediate family and have done so much for us over the years. They host Thanksgiving dinner every year for a large group of us and have graciously offered their house to host my bridal shower, wedding brunch and baby shower as well as my Mom's 50th birthday party.
So in early June we had the honor of being guests at the wedding of Bev's daughter, Jennifer, and David. My Mom and Gail were the "matrons" of honor and looked fabulous! Sadly we didn't get a good picture of the bride and groom (we always have a hard time photographing in churches!). But here are some pics of my Mom in her bridesmaid duds and Lily enjoying her first wedding.
