My stepniece Rachelle and her new husband Winston got married last week in CA, where he's from, and scheduled subsequent wedding receptions for this weekend in ND (where she's from) and next weekend in Washington, DC (where they met and will live). Our family was planning to attend their reception yesterday in Minot, ND, and Suzanna was even going to be stationed at the punch bowl (such a big girl now!).
Unfortunately, ND's wacky winter weather continues: a major blizzard hit this side of the state, shutting down roads and keeping us at home. Many other guests couldn't travel, either, so they hurriedly rescheduled the event for today . . . but we couldn't make it in time after Susan had fulfilled her job duties at church this morning (she's the Sunday school director). We're hoping to see photos, at least, the next time that we visit my stepbrother and his wife. In the meantime, congratulations, Rachelle and Winston! Here's hoping for perfect weather next weekend in DC!
P.S. Because we were planning to be in Minot, I didn't plan a Scandinavian Saturday meal for yesterday. And because the weather was terrible, I didn't venture forth yesterday to buy groceries for an ethnic supper. I'll try again next weekend.
