The long awaited wedding weekend finally came.
For the Bride and Groom and our kids
it was like, “How much longer do we have to wait?
It’s sooo long until the wedding.”
For the rest of us it was like,
“Oh my word, the wedding is next week?
I still have so much stuff to do!”
Ready or not, all at once it was here.
This post is going to be picture overload so get ready.
All the decor going up.
He thinks he’s really getting away with things.
After so long, the work starts getting to you …
Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3.
Aunt Ruth made the cute little cake.
Stringing the lights.
The groom’s family having a pow wow.
These ladies critiquing things and give their opinion.
They had some good ideas.
They also make beautiful bouquets.
We liked it but thought that ugly brown behind the table needed a face lift.
So later that night we covered it and were much happier with the results.
These two were more then ready for this day to come!
“How do we do this now?”
“Start about right here, but don’t go galloping down the aisle!”
And the Father of the bride steps on the groom’s toes and whispers,
“You better take good care of her! I know where you live!”
(or not!) :)
And then suddenly day they have been waiting for is here.
My sweet loving little Miss Thundercloud
was in the worst mood that morning.
At home, all was fine.
She was so excited about wearing her “wedding dress!”
We get there and she decides not to smile.
Nothing, nata, not a thing would make her smile.
Josie and Jasmine were happy.
We forced her to stand there,
but nothing would force a smile.
“What do you think you’re doing reaching for my hand?
I’m here to be mad, not play!”
Ugh! This mom just wanted to bury her head in the sand.
No sand? The Olaf blanket will do!
“Let’s be friends even if she won’t play with us!”
Carrie was feeling a bit chilly
so Olaf to the rescue!
Brooklyn, Reagan and Aunt Bethany
Josie and her Mama
Our wonderful Mama Carol.
She holds the family together and we all love her!
A picture with dad? Sure.
A smile for the picture? No, thank you!
“Hi, I’m Olaf and I like warm hugs!”
He was kept busy keeping everyone warm that morning.
These 2 pretty ladies needed an escort and Mr D was happy to oblige.
All of us!
And I really like us!
Little Miss Thundercloud was back there happily frowning away.
After this she was sent off with Lisa for a bit of a distraction.
It worked. No attention, something else to think about it
and sure enough, she cheered up.
The more you ask something of her,
the less likely she is to comply.
Siblings of the bride.
The groom declares himself a bit special to be included in this photo.
We know. We agree.
Nieces and nephews of the bride.
The Queen decided smiling and being happy was fun!
(Or her big sister may have bribed her with gum)
Pretty ladies all in white.
And smile she did, but only when she felt like it.
She’s sitting on my lap right now and she says,
“I not wook so gwouchy!”
- Now taking applications to deal with a strong willed child.
… off to the wedding …
We had no idea love was in the air!
Mr. Liam and his pretty Mama
Although we are not related by blood, it has been said we look alike.
They were ready to be off …
but I think their truck was too full for them.
And they lived happily every after!
“Some people are worth melting for!”
