Wedding Rehearsal

Another exciting event for our family in April was the long-awaited wedding of Uncle Chad and Aunt Alaina.  Alaina has been a part of our family for a long time now (check out this picture to see how long) and it was high time that we made it official.  Stella was asked to be flower girl for the wedding.  We hid this fact from her for several months before finally spilling the beans.  We knew that once she heard the news she would think that the wedding would happen immediately, so we tried to hold off.  I think ordering her dress and having it altered clued her in, though!  Finally the night of rehearsal came, and Stella was already practicing her walk in the parking lot...
 Daddy and his two favorite girls...
 Pete and Repeat...
 Cille really does watch and mimic everything her big sister does...
 Can't you just hear her squealing?



 We wrapped up our outside practice and took the party into the church...
 Stella insisted on holding her dress like this to walk down the aisle...
 Pawpaw's baby...
 The lovely bride and groom...
 Lacie and Cody B., who has been Chad's bestie for a l-o-n-g time.  I've been around since Chad was about 11, and I know they've been best friends since then...
 Aren't they lovely?

 Stella was very curious about all this...
 Three generations...
 After rehearsal was over, Stella decided that we needed to take some sassy pictures outside.  She encouraged everyone to give their "sassy" poses.  Here's Mawmaw and Pawpaw's...
 Stella's...
 And Cille's...
 I have generously left off the sassy poses of myself and several other adults.  You're welcome, Sheila...
 You can't handle the sass!
 She's even sassy upside-down!
Stay tuned!  Rehearsal dinner tomorrow!
