sappy weepy mess

i am such a sap. i cry at everything nowadays. i just got back from my cousins wedding in Indiana. it was beautiful. they are such a sweet couple. i cried thru the whole wedding. the church ( i was baptized there as a newborn baby just 25 years ago, what?) was beautiful, the wedding party ( my brother wore his army suit... made me cry just looking at him) the bride, the vows, the exit, the entrance to the reception, the speech, the dance... cry, cry cry. it may have been me just missing my girls, or that just being in Indiana makes me emotional. it makes me miss my grandma, it makes me wish i could see my grandparents more often. so many memories come flooding back as we drive around seeing old friends, places, houses. the hospital where my first 2 babies were born. or it could be my sisters upcoming wedding. or that Nattie caught the bouquet. or that my dress was too tight, cutting of circulation... 


during our family blitz game, my grandpa was delighted that he had finally (after9 years) come across an Arizona quarter, therefore completing his United States quarter collection. and who gave it to him? his granddaughter visiting from Arizona! (my sister) a proud moment...
i was being silly with my gram and my great-aunts....
nattie catching the bouqet..... i jumped out of my seat!!!! yeah!!!!!!!!!!!
the ridiculous car that paul rented. it made me cry... not in a good way.
the bride and groom leaving the church...
my little bro....
my little sis...
the church. it was gorgeous
i wish we had video of the awesome dance moves we were sporting at the reception. i couldn't figure out why my neck was hurting SO bad the next day. my cousin reminded me of the extensive head-banging we were doing and that maybe that could have been the culprit. i had a pretty good ab work out too, they were killing me as well the next day. we almost nailed the dirty dancing move, you know the one where she runs and jumps and he lifts her up? almost...

Wow! That makes me sad too reading all that! I didn't know you had your older girls there. I am sure you Cherish the moments when you do get to go back.
I noticed the name of the church. I was baptized at St. Joan of Arc too... here in Phoenix.
The pictures are great Nellie. And you look good in your dress.
P.S. My grandparents, a long long time go, lived in Gary, Indiana, what city were you in?
