Turning Seven Years Old

Turning Seven Years Old

March 27, 2006

Ring Bearer

Tuxedo rental for being ring bearer: $90

New shiny black shoes purchased on the way to the wedding after we discover the rental shoes were too small: $20

Number of people singing Happy Birthday to you: 150

Number of Shirley Temple’s “on the rocks, heavy on the red stuff, with two maraschino cherries and a straw” consumed by you:12

Slow dancing and kissing the cute little flower girl on your birthday: priceless

Witnessing the retina burning cuteness and catching it all on tape: makes the 17 hour labor and subsequent pushing you out of my vagina all worth it

*You can’t hear it in the third video, but right before he runs away there is an announcement for the cake cutting. Yes, he ditched the cute girl for cake.

**youtube wouldn’t accept my spliced video for some unknown to me reason so I had to put it up as three separate short videos.

    Fabulous that you caught all that on tape. He’s a cutie!

  4. novaks8 says:

    That’s so great!

    So how did he get chosen from all the boys? Or did he volunteer?

    My daughter was a flower girl at age 5 and I love those pictures of her and the ring bearer.
    They ended up going to HS together and never really knew each other.

    My 7 year old was a flower girl at my mom’s wedding last year.
    Thank goodness because she was always so jealous of my oldest daughter being a flower girl in 2 weddings!
