Tying the knot....again

(the rings)

(the wedding party, the coordinator front and center)

So my dad came over the other evening to check out a new paint job in our garage. Little did he know that is not all he came over for. Our four year old (big thinker) had BIG plans. She had a wedding in mind - for mommy and daddy.

Almost twelve years ago, my dad performed our wedding ceremony and gave me away. She knows this...and wanted to see it again.

This girl is into details and didn't miss a thing when she coordinated this wedding. My dad sported a red tie [along with his Nike workout clothes], daddy had the perfect tie that made him look "so handsome" [along with his neon green t-shirt]. I was asked to wear a fitted grey flowing dress with her tiara. Her sisters were the flower girls and ring bearers.

There were rings, a Bible and a kiss.

Then came the reception. There was dancing....very fancy dancing. Oh, and let's not forget the ice cream. Sherbet to be exact, in small baby cones.

My dad is only wishing the wedding twelve years ago was on this same budget. Sorry dad.

This girl dreams big and was elated that we followed her dreams the other night just after 8pm. We may just renew our vows someday, get out mommy's wedding dress and daddy's tuxedo and four flower girls and do this all over again for us....for her. She would be on cloud nine.

P.S. Did I mention that she has been praying for a baby brother? Oh yes, and in her sweet little four year old mind....marriage produces babies. Ulterior motives for this wedding?!? No pressure mom and dad!! : )

Hugs and kisses all the way around.

Nice tie, Jay.

Hey thanks. Yes, it was quite fun (and precious). She's a character.
