Wedding(s)

I don't like giving the bride away. There, I've said it! 

My sons-in-law are both great guys. It doesn't have anything to do with them. I am simply selfish and when it comes to weddings, it means that I am loosing that daily interaction with my girls who are a part of me.

My daughter, Kelly's wedding (last year). I'm pictured above dancing the last dance with my baby.
My daughter, Amanda's wedding (two years ago). I'm pictured above with my four girls.

There are compensating factors - and I will admit that as well. Both daughters have given me delightful grandchildren. When I look forward to the next two (staggeringly expensive) weddings, I also have the prospect of still more grandchildren who will bless my life. So maybe giving them away isn't all THAT bad.

Your girls have always been polite on the telephone. This speaks wonders for their upbringing.

The girls have their moments, WoFat - believe me.

I see so much love in these photos, the love of a father and daughter and it is so beautiful to see! As beautiful as each of your daughters are!

I'm thinking of getting married once I obtain my degree, wanna adopt me? I will pay for my own education but the wedding, I might need some help with that! :-)

I leave it to them to decide which one that is... ;^)

World War III, I will prepare! LOL I too have three sisters, no brothers, I am speaking from experience here! :-)
The one perfect one will not respond to your comment, am I correct?

LL said...

I don't know, Darlin - they don't all read my blogs or old messages so it may be falling on deaf ears... If the gauntlet was tossed in public it would be mayhem.
