We were going to be in Kamloops Wednesday attending the Randy Travis show when Dallas called us on Monday and asked if we could stay an extra day... I asked "Why?"
"Because I'm getting married on Friday," she replied.
"Ahhhhh, ummmm, WHAT?" Nothing like surprising her mother!
The hurry? Oh eight, oh eight, oh eight... the date. Well I should say that's not the only reason, they do love each other and have lived together for about four years and she is with child... I could go on and on but in the end they got hitched, and I'm really happy for them. Hubby and I were both witnesses, along with Jevan and Sydney being there (Dallas had brought them over Friday morning).
The ceremony was in the JP's backyard and the weather was perfect.
My daughter, being so prepared like her mother ;) had no bouquet, and when I asked her where her flowers were she held up her feet and said she had even forgot shoes and was being married in her grubby runners. I ran to the nearest grocery store, really I did run across the parking lot because the wedding was in less than five minutes! I bought two bunches of flowers that matched her outfit and, out of breath, we were away!
Jevan was spiffed up with a new shirt, and a promotional 1 dollar hat (looking over my receipt it was actually only a penny!) a saleswoman had sold him earlier at FutureShop. I wish they would have been selling ties because he was a bit miffed that he had to take his hat off during the ceremony.
But then in his usual style he let us all know how he felt about being there.
On Monday, when Dallas called to tell me about getting married, Hubby overheard me saying "Don't you want a big wedding with everyone there?" In the background he's waving his hands at me saying "No, think how much money we'll save!!" Yeah real funny... men!
Sydney and Hubby.
So this year my daughter makes me a MIL (shouldn't that be a four letter word?) and a Granny next year... yeesh enough already! I can feel my age kicking into high gear and I'm heading downhill fast! Although it makes me feel young registering my youngest for kindergarten this year, but I'll bet Jevan has the oldest Mama in the class LOL!
