I know I have been missing from my blog a lot in the last few weeks.. I have been busy getting ready for the biggest day so far in my Baby girl's life..
Emily~ around 4 months old.. so sweet.. I wanted to squeeze you tight and hold you down so that you would never grow up!
At five years old you had just made a bargain with Anthony and Cooper that they had to give you a dollar if you could stay clean until time to go.. you outsmarted them by pulling your dress off and Coopers shirt on! They swore you
cheated.. You all fought about it and I would have made you kiss through the chair crack but the hotel room only had plush chairs..
Look at you holding tight to your Daddy's arm.. I wanted to yell RUN EMILY RUN!!! but in my heart I knew you were in Love.. You were a very beautiful bride!
Emily with Cooper and her siblings from other Mothers
David and Jennifer and George... we were missing two brothers and their families... I will have to ask what David said that made everyone laugh.. did I need to bring my switch to the wedding?
Emily.. Luke.. and Kirstin.. what a beautiful picture.. I love seeing the three of you together.. the three of you always seem so happy together.. rather it is at home or out shopping or even just watching TV I love the way you interact with each other.. I always hoped Emily would find a handsome prince....
and speaking of a handsome prince.. several people asked me who this guy was.. It is none other than my own handsome prince.. Dave almost looked like a stranger with a shave and a haircut..
I am Happy to have a new son and two new Grand- Daughters.. welcome to our family Luke.. Kirstin.. and Trinity..
This is where I have been.. I have been busy planning menu's and shopping for food for a wedding reception.. Chicken salad.. little smokies.. 150 devilled eggs... I made the food myself.. or at least most of it and I was told that it was delicious.. I was way to busy to eat.. when I came home all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and snuggle up and try not to cry..
I have so many wonderful memories of my children growing up.. as a single stay at home Mom for a few years I didn't miss much that my children did.. I went on school trips and always had a crowd of other children here.. some who even lived here.. I am so lucky to have shared so much of their lives.. Every day was a blessing.. I will honestly say that Emily was a beautiful bride.. I only hope that none of the other children decides to get married any time soon.. I will need to rest before I can do this again!..
I will be back on here soon with my normal posts of poems and stories and a photo or two.. Have a great Night!
