Maybe Basketball is Her Sport

I went to my niece's wedding this weekend. It was nice as weddings go. Weather was gorgeous, it wasn't too long and the food was good.

It was pretty much a cookie cutter wedding and it went smooth.

When it was time, they called all the unmarried girls down front for the bouquet toss.

Well my 9 yr old being of the unshy type jumped out front and snagged the first attempt.


Then she out jumped the much taller girls for the 2nd attempt and pulled it down too.


I had to pull her from the lineup to let some of the more eligible ladies have a chance.


Yea I know, she prolly shouldn't have been out there to start with but they encouraged her. Beware what you ask for.

I prolly oughta be worried when she gets older.

I bet you didn't save me any wedding cake. Trader. Probably ate it all yourself...Well, I don't NEED cake, but I sure do like it...

Do you have any idea how many times I have been a bridesmaid...? Guess...yeah(8)and how made bridal bouquets I have caught... tooo frigging many!

I guess it is true, always a bridesmaid, never a bride...

Damn, after that thought, I need a martini....

That blonde bridesmaid out front in the last picture sure looks mighty excited. Did she catch it?

And yes, I see a lot of gun-totin' in your future. Your daughter is a cutie!

With ups like that, you need to get her in volleyball so she can spike the ball.

Jolene said...

Showing the ladies how it's done. Super cute. So did you have to drag her away kicking and screaming? Just kidding :)

I'm glad everyone left unharmed. I always cringe when I see a bunch of grown women fight over the bouquet.

Donna said...

Diane said...

Ha!! Atta girl!

She's going to be a winner!

Wouldn't hurt to keep her locked up for a few years. Just in case.

...Just sayin (-:

Have a great Thanksgiving!!!

Chrissy said...

Adorable! But you have nothing to worry about, I always catch the bouquet and look where it's gotten me. ;-)
