But … BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!!!  So here is my latest BLURB book … 
                   STAN’S 60th BIRTHDAY PARTY
                                          May 2, 2009

Leigh Spoon & Zachary Shull … JUST MARRIED!!!

Leigh (my niece) & Zach had the most wonderful, gorgeous, fun, delicious wedding weekend in Boston.  They were married at the Mandarin Oriental Boston by their dear family friends, Larry Bacow & Jack Feder.  You can share this special occasion with us as you view their abbreviated wedding video.

Stanley was doing a beautiful job videotaping the ceremony with our Flip, but you will see a few mishaps … (1) when Anette, Ryan, & Dillon walked down the aisle Stanley was unprepared, so he didn’t capture Ryan & Anette’s face … just her boobs 😉  , (2) he didn’t realize that Randi was walking down the aisle, so he neglected to capture her special moment, but does have her under the chuppah, & (3) the videotaping concludes before the traditional “breaking-of-the-glass” since the Flip battery died.  What a bummer!!!

Dillon … Just Chillin’

Since last week had been one of the most difficult of our lives, I neglected to post this cute photo of Dillon.  Shame on me, Auntie Shari!  Here he is wishing his Grandpa Alan (Spoon) a happy 60th birthday on June 4. 

Spoon Wedding Ceremony – 5 Parts (VIDEO)

Finally … the wedding ceremony has been divided into 5 small videosAnette & Ryan were married by the Spoons’ dear family friend, Larry Bacow (Alan’s MIT roommate & currently the Tufts University president).  Another wonderful friend, Jack Feder, served as the cantorial soloist.  The ceremony was beautiful, personal, warm, & deeply touching.  We were all freezing, so you can only imagine how cold Anette & her bridesmaids were!

Finny Family Photos …

I’m finally posting some new pix on this updated website.  Some of you have already seen these on Facebook, but I’m just trying to get the hang of this.  Then I’ll start posting new pix.  My nephew, Ryan Spoon, created this blog for me & it has taken me forever to update it.  I guess working night & day for 9 months on Stanley’s 60th birthday bash just didn’t leave me any free time!  Enjoy these beautiful photos.  And thanks again, Ryan, for all your help!!!  You’re amazing. 🙂
