Katharine's Bridal Shower
On January 12th, 2008, Katharine's godmother, Malinda Pretz hosted a bridal shower. Lovely fruit punch was served before lunch. We played a bridal game, which broke the ice nicely. Malinda passed around a roll of toilet paper, asking us to take as many sheets as we wanted. Then, we told one thing about ourselves for each sheet of paper we had taken! Great icebreaker.

The final game which ended the shower: Guests wrote out advice for a happy marriage. The papers were put in Katharine's new waste basket. Katharine read each one aloud and had to guess who had written it.
