Mom & Al's Wedding

Mom married Al up in Green Bay, Wisconsin over the Thanksgiving holiday.  My sister, Cindi, did most of the planning.  Here she is with the wedding cake.
Mom wanted a plain cake "that didn't have people on top of it and not chocolate" 
Each layer was a different flavor.  Very tasty.  And how do they get it so smooth?
We all got dolled up at Cindi & Dave's house.  Here's my niece, Kate, all ready to go.
Don't the guys clean up nicely?
From the left that's Cindi's Dave, my Larry, and our good friend, Don.
Arnie wanted to be in the picture too.
Don brought his daughter, Betsy, holding Mom's dog, Lucy.
[Little Lucy was a very good girl the whole time she spent at Cindi's house. 
Uncle Larry took her for two VERY long walks until she was completely out of ammo.]
Betsy has the most beautiful porcelain complexion I have ever seen. 
Stay out of the sun, Betsy, and always wear your sunscreen!
Finally everyone was ready and waiting at the hotel for Mom & Al to arrive. 
And arrive they did, a little late and rushed, but in plenty of time.
My nieces, Maggie & Kate, made beautiful bridesmaids.
My sister gave a lovely reading from the New Testament.
It didn't take very much time at all...
(So take a look at Mom's terrific shoes first - they rock!)
...before they were wed.
Mazel tov!
Then there was a lovely dinner, then dancing, (but those pictures are all blurry because people would not hold still, because they were, you know, dancing!)
This was a well-documented event.  Here's Mom with Kathi & Don's sister, Carol.
Here is the happy (and very tired) couple at the end of the evening.
And may I present, Mrs Alvin Cooperman.
That's all folks!
