I'm pleased to report that Miss Amelia was the perfect little flower girl. At both the rehearsal and ceremony, Amelia walked slowly and confidently down the aisle. She took her job very seriously and didn't crack many smiles, but she accomplished her mission! Amelia carried a basket filled with rose petals that she was supposed to scatter down the aisle. While she and I practiced, she would put the petals on the ground, then then turn around and pick them up saying "dirty". My girl likes things neat and tidy! I tried to tell her that it was ok to leave the petals behind and that they actually looked pretty, but she just wasn't buying it. So, Amelia and a full basket of petals arrived in the front of the church.

I was so proud of Amelia yesterday and got a little choked up watching her. At so many weddings, I would enviously look at the mother of the flower girl-doting on her to make sure everything was just "so" for her walk down the aisle and yesterday, I got to be that Mommy! Thank you Krista and Mark for including Amelia in your special day!

Getting ready for the ceremony. Like I said, it was VERY tough to get Amelia to smile.

RUNNING down the aisle. Apparently, she had some extra energy to burn off after group pictures!

One last pep talk before Amelia's big walk

And yes, Graham was there too!

Two very tired kids. And no, this isn't at the end of a long day. This is leaving the wedding for the reception!
