A New Grandson

Hi, Y'all,
Today I gained a new grandson, via a wedding. Yes, our Emily was married today to a wonderful young man named Benjamin (called Ben). I have a lot of pictures from the rehearsal, the rehearsal dinner, and the wedding ceremony today. It has been a busy busy two days, and I really feel the effects of all that time. I had to wear my glad rags a lot of that time, and that included the heels that I wore. I much prefer my tennies. Ha.

Anytime that you have a wedding about 35 minutes away (through a lot of traffic), it is a little wearing on these old bodies like mine. Ha ha. Today was also the second birthday of our little adorable Alyssa, which we had celebrated on Tuesday. Fortunately, since she is only two, she is not really aware of which day is her birthday yet.

Today, I am posting a lot of pictures, and there won't be a lot of identifications, but you will be able to pick out the bride and groom and the wedding pictures are quite identifiable.

Well, actually, as I look at the pictures I have chosen to display, I reckon I can do most of the idents for you all.

10th down: The whole cotton-pickin' bunch (no names here)
11th down: Wonderful ladies serving the reception yummies (ice cream sundaes and cookies, along with punch)
12th down: Emily and Ben leaving the church
13th down: The decorated wedding car, of course, taking off

Well, folks that is only a portion of the pictures I made yesterday and today. It is getting late and it's been a long two days. I am tired and there is church to attend tomorrow. If I don't want to have to prop my eyelids open with toothpicks tomorrow, I gotta get to bed. Please continue to pray for my daughter, Teresa's well being. She was really missed today since she could not be here for all the wonderful time we had together, celebrating the union of Ben and Emily.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you. More later. Bye for now.

Baby Brooke is such a doll baby and the bride and groom make such a handsome couple. You sure do look spiffy in your glad rags. I am with you on the high heels. I can't make it long in them anymore. The pictures are all so good. Have a great week.

Emily is 23....and often mistaken for 16. :-) I tell her when she's old, she'll love looking young!

Hi Grammy, lovely to hear from you. I have been out of touch with blogs too. I'm so sorry about Gramps. It is wonderful you are out and about again. I hope that tornado didnt get too close to you. We've had a 7.1 earthquake here, luckily no damage in Oxford but Christchurch city and a couple of towns have major damage. No one was killed thank goodness. XXX
