A Couple Anniversaries!
Five years ago today I married the most wonderful man. We got married at his parents' home and his dad officiated the ceremony. It was small and private. Daniel had no idea I even had a wedding gown. I would moan and groan to him that all I could find were these ugly white dresses at Walm.art for our wedding (ha ha). So my biggest surprise to him was when I walked down the stairs and he saw me for the first time...
I felt like a princess!
Daniel, before the ceremony... pretending to get into the cake!
My gorgeous bouquet of fall grasses and flowers! Gotta love the orange Cala Lillies.
Me posing with the bouquet on the stairwell...
Sparkling apple juice! I was pregnant and therefore nauseous so I just pretended to take a sip.
Cutting the cake! My MIL made the cake and she made my gorgeous, shimmery veil.
I told him that I'd kill him if he put cake in my face so naturally I shoved cake in his! I need to crop these to see it better but there's icing all over him. I also didn't eat a bite of our wedding cake. I threw up in the car on the way to our honeymoon. The day was absolutely gorgeous for the end of October! Nothing like the weather has been lately.
Happy Anniversary, Daniel! I love you with my whole heart. I'm so blessed to be your wife and the mother of your children. It only gets better and better every year! Love you!!!
The other anniversary is the fact Zoë is now a week old. And would you look at that... I finally started typing her name properly. On the birth certificate she has the accent on her name so it's only proper I type it correctly.
Finally, FINALLY got Abigail to hold her baby sister and pose. This was the best shot of the bunch and going on the announcements:
Zoë's umbilical cord fell off on her 5th day of life so we gave her a bath. Elaina was so excited to give her a bath. We had to give her the bath in our bathroom because our kitchen is way too cold! She really enjoyed the bath until she had to get out.
She's telling me all about how wonderful her bath was!
Sisters, after Zoë's bath!
