Abby Visits the Wild Wild Wild West

flowergirlThat’s what she kept saying yesterday, that she was going to the Wild, Wild, West!  Lindsay and Ryan’s next door neighbor’s daughter was getting married, it was an outdoor country wedding with a western theme.  The ladies in the wedding party all wore gowns with cowboy boots and Abby was a flower girl, so Linds bought her cowboy boots to go with her dress as well.

She practiced walking down the aisle last weekend when we were visiting, and she had it down.  But Abby is an almost three year old, and this was her first public participation, Grammie wondered how it would all play out.

Ryan called me last night to tell me that she did great.  But first I should explain that when Abby finishes a project, be it putting together a puzzle or playing a game, when she accomplishes what she wants to do, she throws her little hands in the air and yells “I did it!”

So she strolls down the aisle, throwing her petals out of her basket, and at the end of the aisle she spins around to face the audience, throws her hands up in the air and yells, “I DID IT!”

Mama and Daddy must have been so proud of their firstborn.  And Grammie was sitting here daydreaming that she must have looked a bit like America’s favorite cowgirl, Dale Evans, when she was just a little girl. 

But wait, Dale Evans never wore a party dress with a feather in her hair, she only wore a cowboy hat, vest and skirt.  It was Miss Kitty who wore the fancy dresses and had feathers in her hair. Eeeeek!!!!!  Forget about that little daydream. 

And that’s what’s going on in my life this Sunday morning, I hope I gave you all a smile with little granddaughter’s wedding story….
