A Wedding Winter Wonderland!

Hi Everyone, we have returned safe and sound  and are back from
celebrating my younger sisters wedding.
If you can believe it the day before there was hardly any snow,
and this is what we woke up to. My sister had called first thing as I was staying at my other sisters.
She said Have you looked outside? I could sense her annoyance,
and I said Think of it as a Gift from God, knowing that as I am saying it,
she is still wishing for better weather.
Surprisingly it did not put a damper on the day,
although a few friends and family could not come because of the roads.
My sister looked beautiful, and her two boys walked her down the aisle.
To me the boys looked so handsome, of course I have never seen them dressed up like this before.
The younger one at the end of the day said he was never wearing shoes like that again,
that his feet were killing him and he was going to get married in his bare feet.
Here is the lovely couple leaving the church
to the song I Feel Good by James Brown.
They are both so happy.
The only sad thing of the day was all of us missing our Dad,
especially my Mom. It was the first family function since he died May 30, 2009.
We know he was watching from above and would have been very proud and happy for
my sister. The next day, after the wedding, my older sister had the rest of the family over to her house,
the snow was melting, water was running, and the boys and Uncles played Cribbage for part of the afternoon.
......
We came home on Monday, the weather is beautiful and signs of Spring are all around us.
My husband is off on holidays this week, so I am enjoying the time with him.
We were going to go to the mountains but with the storm that had blown in, we opted to go another time.
It turns out the honeymooners went to the mountains....like we wanted to crash their time alone.
.........
I hope you have all been well and know I will be around to visit your blogs and you
all very soon.
Until next time,
Have Your Very Best Day.
