Girls in White Dresses

Considering I get to participte in someone's wedding on a weekly basis I also get to see some of the cutest flower girls and ring boys. One of my favorites was an evening cermeony where we had candles lining the entire length of the aisle. As the little flower girl began her walk it suddenly occurs to her that there are candles all around her and candles to her are meant to be blown out! So she pauses at each one to blow them out before proceeding down to the next. Granted the bride's dramatic entry is a bit spoiled but it was absolutely the most adorable thing! Well, I personally never had the opportunity to be a flower girl. I was never considered a cute kid but the more mature acting older one. So when my sister was asked to be the flower girl for a church deacon's wedding I was so envious watching her getting her hair curled, getting to wear a pretty white dress and even wearing lipstick! Lucky! Me on the other hand tried to impress in the nicest dress I had but no way could compete with my sister who also got a special flower girl's basket with petals to toss. So yeah, I guess even after all these years I still have a complex about it! =) Well one thing as a mom you can't really do for your child is give them a chance to be a flower girl or ring boy. I mean, you can't force your child upon someone getting married and also age, time, and other circumstances will dictate if they qualify or not. I guess looks being one of them! haha. So Sydnie's best chance at the moment is her eemoh. If we can just time it right, we can get my sister to marry in about a year and half so Sydnie will be old enough to walk down the aisle on her own but yet have the toddler bobble that will give her more of the "awww" factor. I guess I've thought about this a little too much! Poor Sydnie, all this cuz mom never got to experience her own shining moment! Well should for whatever reasons my sister does not come through, then I have a daughter for rent as a flower girl! haha... Okay, that does not sound right. Gosh, hopefully this obsession doesn't consume me where I eventually start to enter her in little girl pageants! Well, considering she has dad's butt and mom's thighs she probably wouldn't make it out of the swimsuit round. haha Anyway, I know all you moms out there also secretly hoping some newly engaged couple will approach you to showcase your child at their wedding! Too bad in my sister's case, she has no choice! =)

I mean really...first of all..you got a bunch of info about my "experience" all wrong. It was a pink dress and no petals were thrown. Second of all...I promised Su Jin I would get married this March. You better hope Han Byul starts walking ASAP and that I find a man! HAHA!

steve is starting to have brian's syndrome of always having his shirt off in pics with ethan. except brian is also in his boxers everytime we get a decent shot of ethan. haha.

Is Su Jin going to come through then? Are you sure the dress was pink? By the way, I can't do March because I'll be too busy planning Han Byul's dohl before that! haha

Sommy, if Steve had it his way he would go to church without a top!

oh ok, well March doesn't work for me either, it's my work's fiscal year end....ARE YOU CRAZY? if I find a man, and get engaged in that time period, I don't care if I have to plan the wedding myself...nothing will stop me, I will get married. HAHA

Hmmm...maybe shouldn't publicly post something that sounds so psycho-ish. HA

hi sydnie umma! i'm excited for sydnie's eemo to hurry up and get married too. i don't want sydnie to be a 14 year old flower girl, like christina (ddi ddi) was. i love the pics of sydnie!

Don't worry unnie. My flower girl was a ddi ddi 8yr old who couldn't fit in her dress but this bridezilla managed to get her in it somehow - she probably saw my laser beam eyes jjae ryuh-eeng her and cut back on those choco pies. Hanbyulee has about 6-8 years she can give her eemoh. March is pushing it Eemoh! But no worries - we're all on "get eemoh a man" project. We're working on it Han Byul ah!
