My baby girl is getting married.
She got engaged at Christmas.
I have struggled with this.
It isn't what I would have chosen for her.
And they know that.
But they are happy.
And he's a great guy.
And I love him.
And he'll be part of our family.
"Like it or not Tyler"
And it's getting close.
I want her day to be beautiful and wonderful.
Because she is wonderful and beautiful.
I want them to know that they have our love.
And support.
For always and ever!

Congratulations! Our children don't always make the choices we would have them make, but we choose to love and pray for them always, no matter what. Hope your family has a beautiful wedding!

Heather said...

Congrats to you and your family! You have got to be so busy planning! I know how much it takes to do a wedding. It took me and my sister from January clear up to her wedding date August 27 to get everything put together.

Cute pictures! Did you take them?

Even though I didn't care for my daughter's choice, I have learned to accept him even though there are still times that my teeth grind. On the whole, she loves him, he's good to her and to the kids, the kids adore him, and sometimes ya' just gotta pick your battles in life. But it's hard learning that. :)

Cute pics, Mama T! The count down is on now!! Good luck with all that's envolved in getting your baby married off. No, not an easy thing to do but you can do it! Pray and work, pray and work, and Aug. 18th will be here before you know it! Be sure to find lots of moments that you can enjoy.

What a beautiful girl she is! And such a cute couple. I wish them all the best in the world. You know... I got married 6 months out of high school and it was the best thing I ever did. We are celebrating 20 years this year and I wouldn't trade a single one. I hope she is as lucky as I have been!

Ooooh, the baby is getting married. . .that 'bitter sweet'!
Does that mean you'll be having a reception in your beautiful backyard?
Cute couple, congrats!

Betty said...

She definitely looks happy! Graduation from school and a wedding! It's been a big year!
Good luck in all the preparations! (That's a busy week for weddings in Rexburg!)

" Hit It......." said...

I am glad that you are accepting this. As long as he is good to your daughter; he can't be all bad. Live and let go.

I hope everything goes well for you all. I loved the IPHONE picture.

Best wishes to your baby and her man. They are happy and they should be with all of your love and support. This is your last wedding right? That's reason enough to celebrate! Hugs to you and good luck in the busy days ahead.

I LOVE YOU TAUNA!! I love your attitude, love how much you love your kids and I love the photos you took of them! (The sign at the cute building at the BYU-I gardens, is one of my favorite awesome that you took a photo of them under this, especially considering the circumstances!)

Your kids and their spouses are SO lucky to have YOU for their mom!

Have fun and I love what Gigi said..."Be sure to find lots of moments that you can enjoy"! Good Luck with everything. If there is anything at all that I can do to help you out, please let me know.

HUGS to you!! I need to make it up your way and bring you a treat and say "HI"...I miss you lots!!
