It's the most wonderful time of year, and it's also the busiest. After Eli and I picked up Ellie following our little date yesterday afternoon, we all headed home. I had to make something for the Boy Scouts Potluck, so while the casserole was finishing, I dressed Ellie for Rehearsal Dinner.
She was asked to be the flower-girl in a wedding for someone at church. That was way back in the summer, and she has been super pumped about it ever since. She was so excited to get dressed up and head to the church to practice.
The little ring-bearer also goes to our church and is seriously one of the cutest kid I have ever seen. I begged to take their picture together, and finally, we made a compromise. If I let him take one in his Spiderman mask in one picture, he would take one picture for me without it. That's a win-win, ya'll!
They both did a great job at rehearsal and loved hanging out with the groomsmen and bridesmaids. My sister bought Ellie a play wedding dress for Christmas, so she's going to be smitten now that she knows what it means to be a bride.
Ellie's favorite part of the night was toasting with Sparkling Cider. She'd say "cheers" every single time someone would finish a speech. It was so cute. I told Eric that if she's still that enthusiastic about drinking "champaign" in 15 years, she's not allowed to go to college. Ha!
I can't wait to see how she does in the wedding tonight. She will probably eat it up because to her, life's a stage!
