New Addition to our Family


My daughter got married today! She and my new son-in-law decided to elope during their winter break from school. They made all their own plans for this, rather than waiting for a big wedding in the spring. They went to a chapel in the mountains today and will be staying in that area to honeymoon until Sunday. Am I sad that they didn't have a big wedding? Yes and no.... I would have liked to have seen my little princess walking down the aisle with her daddy to meet her groom.... and I would have cried and it would have been beautiful. All the money would have been spent and they would be on their merry way. Both kids are still in college and decided they would rather have a simple private wedding and keep the money. This way they can continue in school without too many financial struggles to stress them. They are both quiet people and didn't really want a big hooplah centered around them. I think they made a wise decision and I pray they will live happily ever after.

Congratulations on the new family member! I think the elopement was a good idea! A big wedding only last a few minutes. The marriage part is for a life time and is the important thing.
