{a first wedding}

We're back from our weekend of wedding fun in Oklahoma, with great memories and new confidence in Tilly's ability to survive on little sleep. We're thinking of changing her middle name to "Party Animal". 

Luckily, her party dress was finished just in time, and Miss Rufflebottom even had a chance to practice her dance moves in it before we took off. (Good job I snapped a few pics then, as I forgot my memory card for the trip, and so am sadly lacking in photos of the actual wedding!)

What you can't see, concealed by layer upon layer of ruffle, is that I skipped out on using buttons altogether. Instead, we've got snaps. Yes, maybe poor Fiona Bell (the pattern designer) is preemptively rolling over in her grave. And yes, maybe we did have to hastily resnap poor Tilly up a few times during the wedding when she popped open. But it worked in a pinch. 

Much eating, dancing and meeting of family was had. Tilly even tried the wedding cake -- which, it turned out, was an excellent way to give a tired baby a boost of energy at 10pm!

Hope you had a great weekend, too. And that you got a little more rest than our little Party Animal!

The dress came out so well! Tim Gunn would be so proud - you definitely made it work!
Love the dance moves, she looks so grown-up suddenly!
