My Sister's Wedding

This post is in DRASTIC contrast to the one below...whew!

I thought my sister was nuts when she asked that all 4 of my little ones be a part of her special day...I was flattered, yes, but worried...Brianna was to be a Jr Bride'smaid, Anjolie and Lily were the flower-girls and Ayden...the ring-bearer. I was thrilled to be the Matron of Honor.

The kids all did great...even Ayden when it came to the ceremony. The people at the venue coordinating and helping with the wedding said that Ayden was the youngest "functional" ring-bearer they had ever seen in their facility :). I was a proud mama when I saw that little guy lock eyes with me and walk down the aisle with his little pillow just as if he'd done it a thousand times before. Now, the rest of the night was a bit of a challenge as this was an evening wedding, but in the important moment, Ayden rose to the occasion.

I'm having trouble labeling these pics sorry...enjoy! ( you know anyone needing jr bridesmaid or flowergirl dresses for a wedding?-for free of course to my blog buddies on my list)

Beautiful!! Such great pictures.
I really like the one of you, your girls and your mom; great picture.
That little Ayden, he looks like too much fun. I can't help but think of that lavender bathroom every time I see his innocent little face. I must say you brought me great laughter with that story! I can only imagine your horror and I know as the mother I would not have handle it nearly as well as you did; as your friend and reader of the story---thanks for sharing. :)

Pictures are great. Kids are beautiful! Great to see you back.
