Were you ever a flower girl? I don't think I was. At least I don't remember being one. I remember being a junior bridesmaid (which I loved) but not a flower girl. This weekend our little girl got to be a flower girl in Aunt Lisa's wedding. She ate it up!
We talked about it after getting home today-about how she's going to have to come down off that cloud she's on after having everyone tell her how cute she was. You know, even at age 4, she knew she was the center of attention and turned on the charm!
We practiced tossing the petals down as if she were walking down the aisle.
When it was time she did it, but was a little concerned about Ella (who is 2) because she didn't toss any petals down.
You could hear it plain as day, "Mommy, Ella didn't toss any petals on the ground."
She twirled and spun in her dress while keeping up with her brother and the other boys playing on the playground at Eberly Farm.
She looked out of the corner of her eyes to get herself a piece of cake, even though she only had a roll for dinner.
And she was the last one on the dance floor and was the only one to dance to (almost) every song during the dance.
I don't know where she gets her energy, but I wish I had some of it!
My little flower girl definitely did what she does best...was the prettiest girl a mama could ever ask for, all while doing her job as a flower girl and being polite to everyone she saw!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
