Ceremonies of the Buttless

Sean and I occasionally get invited to different celebrations. Within one week, we attended a wedding reception and a graduation. Both events involved hours and hours of sitting, 15 to be exact, speeches, Ugandan music blasting out of crackly speakers, and some good eating. We were pretty lucky to have a Celine Dion song dedicated to us. It was pretty fun. Here are some photos to show it!

This is Simon and Prossy on their wedding day! (Simon builds all the doors and windows for the homes we construct). My office was a guest of honor and we got to eat with them at the local resturant!

We picked up Paul's parents on the way to the ceremony. This is his whole family.

After the ceremony, we went back to Paul's parents place for a second celebration.

Paul's sister brought the cake from Kampala and it was so good!

All the neighbours came to eat some too.

Sean and Bruce were both guests of honors and had to make some speeches (I luckily got out of a speech!). Bruce is our friend working with the Peace Core- it was fun hanging out with him during the 11 hour graduation celebration day.
