The Best Sunday, Ever!

I've been keeping this on the down low because my mother doesn't have a lot of money and couldn't invite a lot of people.  This weekend her and her fiancee were married.  It was so sweet and touching, many times I had to fight back the tears.  I so happy for her for finding love again!  If he can put up with us (I mean me, my 2 brothers plus my SIL and my husband) he's great in our book!  
I finally met his family finally and ehhh you know, it's the family you see all the time that really count.  For those who have know him almost all his life they seemed pretty darn somber.  I have to feel bad for them because I don't think they were very happy about the union.  Especially his daughter who wouldn't even look at the bride and groom during the ceremony.  It's her loss.  Her father is really a great guy and I hope she realizes it someday!
We had lots of fun and it was wonderful to spend it with my  little brother who I don't get to see that often, my other brother and his wife, plus my husband too.  We really don't need a party to have fun when we are all together!
I hope to have a picture of the wedding cake soon.  I totally forgot my camera.  I only had 4 hours of sleep the night before.  There were 2 photographers who were like the bloody paparazzi!  We (me, my husband, my 2 brother's and my SIL) arrived really early.  Have you ever been photographed every 3 seconds?!?  It's very annoying and hard too see with all the flashing going on.  I hope to have great pictures up someday.  There had better be some with 2 cameras going all the time.  Of course I was the only one who kept closing my eyes during each picture.  We had to do duplicate shots because of me.  Sorry I blink a lot when I'm nervous!
With all that's happening in the financial world my SIL and I have decided not to go to Rhinebeck.  She needs a roof, I should pay off my credit card and going up wouldn't really benefit either of us.  Besides my husband was telling me credit cards could raise the % you pay up to 40%?  I don't know if he was talking on defaulted cards or everyone.  I was a little too freaked out to ask.
