Apple Girls

Last weekend was my brother-in-law’s wedding. Our girls were asked to be the flower girls for the occasion, although actually they were “apple girls” holding baskets with an apple and fall leaves. I was so nervous about how they would behave. White dresses, walking in front of a crowd, staying quiet during a ceremony – all things that could go very, very wrong.

And yet…

Everything went amazingly well. The girls were a little restless before the ceremony, but when the time came, they only needed a little push from me to walk down the aisle. (It helps that Aaron was a groomsman, so they knew to walk to daddy.)

Of course, at the reception they kept the dance floor hot.

And perhaps one of the most amazing moments of the day was that we actually got a photo of the four of us all together. It might be the first of all of us together, even if it is a grainy iPhone photo.

It was a lovely wedding, Cordy and Mira were perfect in their roles as apple girls, and I survived without having a stroke from the stress of keeping them clean.
