  2. What a cutie your granddaughter is! It looks like she's pondering the topic of her first guest post here. ;-)

    Priscilla and Dirk...just wow! LOVE her hair and the veil. Curious to see the rest of the dress!

    Looking forward to more photos of the baby and the newlyweds. (Not-so-subtle hint.)

    Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations Leila !!!!! Never underestimate the love of a grandparent. I know that the depth and love of that relationship is beyond amazing. Plus to also have another gorgeous daughter who just got married is an added blessing. As a loving grandmother myself... I can say it all just gets better. You, Leila, are not only the epitome of motherhood, but also the epitome of being the kind of woman every other woman strives to be. You have a gentle heart and your ability to reach out to those who have a need to share is unequaled. And now God gives you an even more precious gift. God Bless you and your lovely family

  11. Congratulations on being a first time grandmother and a second time mother in-law. I love it! Was your oldest daughter able to be in her sister's wedding? I know the dates were close together.

    Felicity .........(Perpetua, Agatha, Lucy, Agnes, Cecilia, Anastasia) pray for us!
    Sorry , just a strong word association. And Happy Feast of Corpus Christi.

  13. Details, details.

    I was wondering the same thing Hafsa was: was your oldest daughter able to be a bridesmaid? And how does one even know what size of bridesmaid dress to order knowing one may or may not be 9 months pregnant?

    What an exciting time for all of you.
