GRANDDAUGHTER TIME


Our granddaughter, Monique is getting married in June and we spent some special time yesterday, having lunch, visiting and catching up, and then a couple hours working on the wedding invitations.  She has such a sweet little face, but she's 25 and a manager at Red Robin.  I've mentioned before, out of all the grandkids, only 3 girls.  She's one of them.

From our dozen grandchildren, Monique is the second to get married.  Her older brother was the first and the daddy of our two great grandsons.

It's hard to believe how quickly the time goes. You welcome a new grandchild into the family, and then next thing you know your at their graduation, or wedding, and then to the hospital to welcome a great grandchild into the family. 

We are a blessed family.  Not a day goes by that I'm not giving thanks for our family and how God has blessed us.  The beauty of grey hair, and a wrinkled face is to be surrounded by 3 generations of love.

OK, now that I've gone on my "sentimental journey" it's time to hit Macy's and find a dress.  Perhaps something in a pretty rose color for a summer wedding.  What do you think?

    1. I don't like dress shopping!!! I tried on a ton and decided I wouldn't spend that much for something I really didn't like that much. Keep searching!!! I have till June. HaHa I do like the idea of rose color.

    1. It's crazy how the time flies. When your grandchildren range from 27 to 9 months. I'll be in my late 80's when Tristan graduates. Lord let me live that long. Monique is as sweet as she is cute.
