3 years ago....

September 10, 2005 was a special day in the K household. We gained a new family member when kid #1 married a special girl. It was quite a day. Beautiful weather and that was a good thing, because the reception was in our backyard.




It's such an emotional day when your child gets married. You have a little touch of sadness as you realize your baby is all grown up. Sure you knew it before, but it just really takes on new meaning as you watch him say, "I do."



A wave of nostalgia passes over you as you remember his little bald head and sweet smell, his first football game where you were sure he was going to get stomped on, the day he made Eagle Scout, the first day you dropped him off at college....and now, his wedding day.



A bit of pride creeps in as you think about what a responsible young man he has turned out to be and you just for a second like to think it is ALL because of you!!



You can't help but catch the excitement as everyone is all dressed up and focused on the lovely bride as the music plays and she slowly makes her way down the aisle.



A sense of joy fills you as you realize your family has now grown. You already love the new addition, but that seems to grow by the second as you watch her love and commitment as she looks at your baby...her friend...her husband.



Yeah....it was a special day!!! Happy Anniversary J &T!!!

What a nice tribute to your son and daughter in law. She's a lucky gal to have a MIL who cherrishes her. I know the feeling is mutual!
