Thrilling news

My oldest daughter is twenty-eight. She will hit the twenty-nine mark in December. Her hubby will be thirty soon. They have been married alomst ten years. When they got married nearly ten years ago, it was at the Justice of the Peace. There was no formal wedding ceremony. Audrey called me and asked me if I would give her away when they had a wedding ceremony and renewal of vows for their tenth anniversay in June 2009. I was only too happy to say, "Yes."

After talking about it for a bit on the phone, I told her there was not set way of doing this. The ceremony was entirely up to her. Her mom and I did something like it for our eleventh anniversary (she was pregnant on the tenth.) I told 'A' that I would write a few ceremony options for her (I wrote the ceremony for K and I.) What is even more exciting is that I am not only giving her away, I am officiating the ceremony.

To celebrate my first born growing into such a lovely person, I am going to show some of her pics growing up. No need to thank me 'A'. You would do the same to .. er .. for me.

That is wonderful news! What a great day that will be for the whole family. You know what makes a great renewal of the vows gift - a red refrigerator.
