weddings. plural.

there is alot of planning going on right now.
for my son, dan’s wedding.
and for my niece kris’ wedding.

for those of you reading who aren’t family members i’ll give you a little background history.

“daniel and krissy” (as the fam calls them) are cousins just 6 months apart.
daniel grew up loving to remind krissy that he was older.
our families spent alot of time together as the kids grew up.
hanging out at grandma and grandpa’s house.
grocery shopping and target shopping together.
holidays and birthdays together.
and vacations together.
just many many hours spent together as they grew up.
alot of times people on vacation or in target thought they were twins.

krissy is getting married in june.
daniel is getting married in july.
yes, of 2009!
so we find ourselves in the midst of alot of planning.
planning and doing and working hard.
personally i’m having alot of fun.
of course in both cases the whole load isn’t on me.
i’m the mother of the groom for one wedding.
and i’m an aunt of the other wedding.
i’m getting the pleasure of stepping in to help with stuff.
without the enormous pressure that mother of the brides hold.

i have hundreds and hundreds of pictures of daniel and krissy over the years.

here are  just a few i thought i’d share.

and can i just say that it really DOES seem like just yesterday that they were this little.

that saying isn’t just a saying older mothers say for the heck of it. it’s so very, very true.










happy weddings  (plural)  daniel and krissy!!!
