Over the Thanksgiving weekend, my beautiful daughter Ashley got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Mike! Yeah for them!!!! So excited for their future life together and all of the possibilities that it holds!
Now the fun begins....every mom has dreams for their daughters wedding - every daughter has dreams for their big day...oh the fun, fun, fun! So why the tears???? Could it be that the precious little girl that I gave birth to 26 years ago is grown now, could it be that she will be gorgeous in that gown as she walks the aisle, could it be that she is opening a door that requires maturity and dedication that she cant begin to imagine until she walks through that door, could it be that Nanny wont be here to see what she always wanted, could it be hormones??? Who knows??
So I have decided to make every effort to stop the tears by LAUGHING....yes Laurel Burns said by LAUGHING.... so if you see me - tell me a joke, if you email me - please make sure to include something funny, if you hug me - smile and laugh with me.
So the plan for the weekend after the dress shopping is done and Lex has moved all of his items from his room ....watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and LAUGH! Play with DD (devil dog) aka Georgia Rose and LAUGH! Tell Coach Burns a joke....haha that is a laugh itself!!! Spend Sunday with a bunch of youth from church and LAUGH (they always make me laugh at the things they say)....
If you have any other ideas....let me know.....otherwise I may have to buy stock in Kleenex!
To get the laughter started for today.....hope you enjoy this silly silly Christmas song a friend at work has gotten me stuck on!
