Before Gennie was Hitched.

Last week we had a million parties leading up to Gen and KC's wedding, which was Saturday. We had a BBQ where my Aunt Nancy and Uncle Phil sang (they are the best), the rehearsal BBQ, Pedicures with all the girls, the family watched old home videos, and best of all SAMPLES NIGHT.

Lets start here:

Gennie, Becky, and I, and I'm not sure whoever else would join in, but as kids we would play "Samples"--a game where you make little snacks that usually consisted of cheese and crackers or lil' smokies, and you eat and enjoy.

For the night before the wedding we wanted to do something really fun with Gen so we decided to reenact Samples. All of the family members came over to my moms house with their own versions. Here is what arrived:



Kelsy with miniature Snow Cones -- Best Idea Ever.


Daniel with Tostino's Pizza Rolls -- You know, the ones that were recently recalled....


Derek and I with Mini Corn Dogs -- I'm not going to lie, they were ADORABLE.......


Kristin with my favorite Sample -- Bacon and waterchestnuts with a Secret Sauce...
(Give up the recipe Krick)


Jaaf and Kylie with breadsticks -- and funny faces......


Mom with tradition -- Biscuits and her coined frosting, and ham and pineapple skewers....


And after we had all eaten, and decided that to our dismay, Daniel's pizza rolls were the hit of the night, the last guest arrived. Who else but the REASON for the party -- the bride to be.

I have one last thing to say: Of all of our family parties, and random ideas- this was by far the best. Good job Krick!
