What a lovely group they are and what lovely flowers they have....at least the ones Jed did.

Jed and I (along with many helpers) were making flower arrangements into the wee hours of the morning. When we got to the point where we had the two largest arrangements to do, Jed did one and I did one (this one is Jed's...at least I think). At one point I said something to the affect that I thought they were big enough and we didn't want to use all the flowers in those two arrangements. Then Jed added another so I had to add another, then I added one more and he added one more until, well pretty much they were twice as big. And that began the flower competition.....I think we are still friends, right Jed???

This is when Jed decided it was the perfect time (right before Kami walked out of the temple) to break it to Richard that their flip house had water dripping through the light fixture downstairs. Notice the sick look on Richards face - classic.

Look how perfectly they are all holding their flowers, at the perfect angle. Hmmm...I wonder if there was a flower Nazi somewhere in their midst???

Jed may never speak to me again after seeing that I posted this picture. Doesn't he look like a natural? Too funny. The shirt doesn't look so purple in the picture - what do you think Jed? I know I am color challenged.

So I thought I was getting an awesome picture of a bridge and all I got was the road. Maile said "Hold the camera up really high." Evidently it wasn't high enough.

Picture #3: The inevitable happens. I start to lose my balance, grab Nalani and both of us fall to the side while hysterically laughing. The funniest part was that Nalani's lip was sweating. JK.

Picture #2: Karmen pushes Nalani forward in order to get on. Nalani utters a few choice words through her laughter.

Picture #1: Nalani gets on the lucky brass pig, but won't move forward so I can get on too.

Pike's Place market had the most awesome tulips for sale there were tables and tables of all colors of tulips and they had the best prices!

I love your Seattle pictures! I am mad that I didn't take any pictures of the "staging" area for the flower arranging.
And yes, Jana's front door is PURPLE!

Karmen, you are a gem!! The flowers were incredible and we really do give YOU most of the credit, although Jed was amazingly adept also. Great to see you again. (Pat C.)

You rock Karmen. Thanks for all you did this last weekend and for being such a good friend to Sha-Nay Nay. I bet your fam is glad to have you back. I think you secretly won the flower contest but we wont tell Jed, his pride will hurt.

I know I REALLY need to get with the program! So much for summer being relaxing. I solemnly vow to post something by the end of the year. A good friend once told me not to set too lofty of goals b/c it will only result in a loss of self esteem. That's my mantra.

karmen, it's okay. It just goes to show how important this Seattle trip was, and I'm sure that means a lot to the Oram's...ha ha...
