It's a spatula...not going to do much harm.Cutting the cake.....with the spatula.I missed the cake/face smashing thanks to a camera malfuntion. This is the after affects.Wade getting some icing off of Scott's shirt. Wade then proceeded to smear it all over Liz's face.Rossi with Momma's flowers. I just love this picture of Rossi.Faith eating her cupcake.And Layla Sue "wearing" her cupcake.The brothers seem to be scheming.Finally....Hut and I getting ready to dance. Liz with her Grandmother, Susan, who performed the ceremony and her Great-Grandmother, who is 92 years old. Doesn't she look wonderful for 92? Now comes the real fun. Decorating the getaway vehicle. No one thought to buy one of the car decorating kits, so we went old school and decorated with anything we could get our hands on, including birthday wrapping paper for little girls.Beer cans, streamer decorations, and paper bells.They cut up a beer carrying case and taped it to the back windows. I'm so glad we found a second use for alot of the decorations.Remember the "kissing" bells. Well the girls brought out just about all of them and here you see Wade putting them in the hubcaps of the truck. We put bells everywhere in and out of the truck.Even on the windshield wipers. Yep that's me getting in on the action. I had told Wade the picture I had taken of him putting bells in the hubcaps was a blackmail photo. So I guess Diana decided to get even by taking this picture.Miss Rossi and her Momma.Here comes the groom out the door, getting ready to leave.

Here's Liz trying to make her escape.

Not sure what's going on here but it's a great shot of the brothers.

Liz, Rossi and Scott.
