It's a fun weekly meme where you get to show off your photos, old or new (but they must be yours). It's just a fun way to share.
So....here is what I'm sharing today.
My granddaughter was a flower girl in her Grammy's wedding in November. (her other grandma)
It was a 2nd wedding for both, and they didn't want anything big and elaborate. As a personal spin, the entire wedding party consisted of their grandchildren (there were 7 children under 4) and their 2 youngest daughters to be witnesses.
2 of those grandchildren also happen to be my grandchildren.
okay, enough back-story.
This is my granddaughter Emerson, on the right, and her cousin Hannah on the left.
We were just busy snapping pictures and when we went back and looked, we thought these were the cutest ever!
We wonder what Hannah was saying to Emmy?
It must have been something good tho!
Isn't it adorable? (the bad thing is that the camera was focusing on the leaves in the foreground so the picture of the girls is fuzzy if you try to enlarge it much)
Wait! I can't leave Eli out of this--I said I had two grandchildren in the wedding, right?
The little groomsmen.
My grandson Eli (the first one with his sign, Here Comes) took his job very seriously.
His cousins, who were both younger than him, made it down the aisle, but the pressure of standing up there for the whole wedding was too much for them, so they gave up the wedding party and went to sit with their parents.
Or other things....
Little Charlie gave up his groomsmen position to come see what the flower girls were doing.
Not so, Eli. He stood in his spot for the entire ceremony. This wasn't his first rodeo. He was a ring bearer when he was 2.
Loved, loved, loved the "family" feel of this wedding.
One more family member before I go...
...my daughter-in-law preformed the wedding ceremony (She's a Methodist Minister), which was very special.
But still....look at the girls. Checking out each other's necklaces was much more interesting than listening to the ceremony.
Oh yes, and the wedding was Skyped to some family who couldn't be there.
(the brides parent's, the minister's grandparents and the flower girls great-grandparents.)
It's a new world. (well, from when I was younger anyway)
You can be there, even if you can't be there.
