We were all so thrilled when Nickie and her fiancé (now husband) announced their engagement last year. Since then, the kids have been anxiously awaiting the big day. Not just awaiting, but enacting.
They have played "wedding" at least once a week for the last year: Olivia is a bridesmaid/priest (she takes on 2 roles), Nick is the ring-bearer, and Ellie and Peter are the bride and groom.
The reception was the greatest. It looked like this most of the time: kids running, dancing, laughing. Olivia declared it the greatest night of her life.
I spent a lot of the night with Ellie sleeping on my lap. Poor thing got tuckered out from all of the excitement. But, I still had a wonderful time, watching all of the romance and the dancing.
