Now Introducing

IMG_7124-1

When I heard the official introduction at the end of my brother's wedding ceremony, I was overcome with amazement!! My little brother was now a husband.... a man committed to loving and serving this sweet young lady as Christ loves the church. I was overcome!!

I remember this little boy....

  • the little boy with the bowl cut:)

  • The little one that Momma brought home and I helped name:)
  • The one that we'd dress up when he was sleeping in the carseat!
  • That I had to carry to bed when he fell asleep watching TV when I babysat.
  • Or that was homesick when our parents were on vacation and asked me to come home from college to take care of him.... yes, I did drive home (miss a class or two & work time)! TOtally worth it... and I MADE him take a shower... possibly is ONLY one that week.... LOL!!
It wasn't that I was surprised that soo many years had passed. Or that he's now mature and able to care for a wife (and maybe one day a another little one).

It's was just that he was my LITTLE brother...
and now he's a husband!!

ok, ok.... the wedding...

We had to exit early since we had the kids with us!

We promised them Rita's Italian Ice for doing a good job in the wedding.
All 3 got some, I didn't get a pic of Chris... he was DONE with pictures;)
