The last of my siblings got married this weekend and my girls had the honor of being his flowergirls! It was a great weekend. We spent lots of time seeing family that hasn’t been seen in a long time, and my girls were THRILLED to see their very favorite older cousin Sarah who now lives too far away.
I was *SO* proud of Elena and Julia as they walked down the aisle – we could have used some more smiles from Elena, but smiling and walking was too much to remember!
The above picture is the only picture I got of them walking down the aisle — I needed to be ready to ‘catch’ Julia before she made it to the steps. There was no way she was going to make it through the whole ceremony standing at the front! Can’t wait to see the photographer’s non-blurry photos!
Elena did a great job standing with the Maid of Honor, although it was funny to watch her inspect said Maid of Honor’s nail polish, pick up dropped jewels from the floor (jewelry on the bride’s bouquet broke off), etc. Luckily she didn’t distract *too much* (I hope!).
Julia, meanwhile, ate Puffs (our normal keep-quiet-in-Church routine) and generally squirmed:
And my brother got married. (our parents looking on) Awwww….
Unfortunately, despite her good walking-down-the-aisle performance, Julia was not interested in pictures at all. She’d cry and run as soon as I put her down with the bride. But we did try!
Who me? Cry? I’m a happy girl!
And now to finish the hand quilt — I started quilting it last night after we got back in town and only have one week to finish it! Must. Get. To. Work.
OH, and Happy 6th Anniversary to my husband and I: we acknowledged it yesterday but hope to go out and actually celebrate it this next weekend!
