we've sorta had weddings on the brain around here. and by that i mean ella is COMPLETELY obsessed with the notion of playing "wedding" all day. every day. fortunately, the lucky man is always daddy. (lucky man also means "very good sport." i mean, come on? how cute is he?) the thrilled to death brother. (please notice rose petals scattered about the "aisle")(and the ribbons tied around the chairs... what can i say? she has an eye for detail. which is why she also wanted place cards made for the reception and a fancy "dinner." sorry, its pb&j for lunch, little bride.)vows written completely by ella without any prompting whatsoever by me. she sure retains a lot considering she's only been to one wedding. (that of "aunt" and "uncle")
"friends, we come to celebrate this wooded husband and wooded wife.
now, uncle anthony you say: 'with this ring, i celebrate this wooded wife.'
would you be nice to this wooded wife?
now aunt ella, you say: 'with this ring i celebrate this wooded husband.'
would you be nice to this wooded husband?
let the dancing begin... all i know is someday these photos will be great in that wedding picture montage before ella walks down the aisle.
("someday" of course meaning "in like 30 years when she's actually allowed to talk to boys.")
