A wedding story.....

Long, long ago in what seems like another life, three women were blessed to be friends and have small, small children who played together.

There was one little girl who loved to sit on my bar and eat cheese dip out of my crock pot.  We were so afraid she would be fat.  

The children all grew up and went many different ways and the little girl who loved to eat cheese dip so very much became..........a 6 foot model.  Yes, on the cover of a magazine.  I guess she worked out a lot!  Not really, she just had really good tall genes!  Then she became a chef....I think......then she started making really gorgeous jewelry.  Now, she's a wife.  A very good occupation! 

Yesterday that little girl, all grown up, got married!  

They had a small private family wedding, then a reception for family and friends.   Below Christy and her new husband are just entering the reception.

Does that girl look happy?  The new husband is trailing along behind.  I was so glad I got to see her in her wedding dress and veil! 

Here she is with her brand new father in law and two other guys that just got stuck in the picture.  I wanted a picture of her entire dress!

The bride with her mama! 

The two girls on the left are sisters, Ashley and Lauren and a friend.


The brother, Troy.......he and my son, David, are the same age. 

The bride made these beautiful cupcake cakes!  AND all the little take home treats.


The grooms cake.  The monogram and border are made from M & M s.


The three friends who produced these and even more children!
Strange, we looked a lot younger then.

This took me back to when my daughter got married - only difference, it was me who made the cake, not the bride!

Isn't it a blessing to have friends of such long standing and to watch the children grow and have children of their own. What a beautiful bride and she just glows. Thanks for sharing.
