    The wedding was set for 2 pm. We got there later than we planned. We were there at 1:45. The bride was still at her inlaws getting ready. They were using makeup to cover up her tattoos!!! They had taken all morning to do this and still weren't done!

    I got several great shots outside while we were waiting on Nicole.

    I have 20 photos so bear with me!! I actually took 60 but didn't want to bore you to tears!!!

    Now Cody is Nathan's son by marriage (stepson) and by adoption We don't usually differentiate between the ones by blood or by marriage but it helps to understand the situation here if you know that.

    Cody is marrying ( or actually has married now!) a girl Nicole who had Alisha 3 and was pregnant when Cody met her. So when Jayden was born Cody became Jayden's legal father.

    He is doing the exact same thing Nathan did when Nathan married Cody's mom Jill

    We are very proud of Cody. When Nathan married Jill he was only 19 and the kids were 4 6 and 8. Nathan became an instant dad to 3 kids at the age of 19. Now Cody is marrying Nicole and becoming an instant dad at 21. This makes Nathan a grandpa at the age of 32 and makes us great grandparents at the age of Glen 59 and me 53!!

    The pics I took inside aren't as good as the ones outside. These are alittle grainy.

    Nicole wanted Jayden to walk down the aisle but he sat down and refused to do it so the assistant had to carry him down the aisle.

    When it was Alisha's turn as the flower girl she came in and looked at everyone and refused to go down the aisle!! She turned and wanted her mom to go with her!!! Jake (11)was off to the side and he took her hand and tried to get her to go and she kept hesitating. Grandma at the front of the church and a couple of others were urging her to go down the aisle but she wouldn't! So Jake gave in and was going to go down the aisle with her. About a third of the way down she shook off Jake's hand and informed him she didn't need his help!!! And she made it down the aisle amidst everyone's amusement!!!

    Thanks Bellaboo! I gave them money in a beautiful wedding card.

    But behind the wedding card I tucked another card that was a 50th anniversary card and I wrote in it ---I expect to be at your 50th wedding anniversary!! Even if we will be 109 and 103 we will be there!!!

    Rhonda, you have a beautiful family. Glad you did get pics & all of them are keepers. I'll go back & figure everyone out. I know you're bursting your button. You & Glen look like proud grandparents & great grands. Could you have imagined all this when you'll got married?

    Rhonda, the stories of Jayden & Alisha's antics is so cute. I don't blame them, I don't lilke crowds either. But, they did make it there with a little assistance. Now I kinda know what everyone looks like & they're all movie stars. Did anyone make videos, maybe at the reception? I'm sure you'll would have liked to stay, but totally understand the reason you didn't. I saw you jewelry in the pics & I'm so glad you found it. All in all, a great day though. Wonderful memories.

    Thanks Suzie and Sheila. All of you guys should feel special. I never take pics of myself and definately never show pics of me. I don't look good in pics!!! I know you are all being kind but if I were 150 lbs lighter it would be a differant story!!

    No I don't particularly feel bad about myself just know being heavy doesn't make for a good pic.

    So I do appreciate the kind comments!! I even got a "You look really nice Grandma" from Tyler which shocked me! Boys that age don't usually notice things like that about their elders!! Did I say he is my favorite grandson now??? LOL :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    AAAAHHH, Rhonda, I love a good Wedding, and your pics prove this was a great wedding. You look the best kind of Grandma.....a Happy One!
    The purple top suited you perfectly, and DH looked every bit the Happy Grandpa too.
    I wish the happy couple a long, happy and contented marriage, and will keep my fingers crossed that you will both be there at their Golden Wedding! (Wiping the odd tear from the corner of my eye - everyone cries at a wedding, don't they?)

    Thanks Rachael. It was a little strange to have my first grandchid getting married. I kept thinking about my kids weddings. Especially Nathan's. He and Jill got married in the same church and I had this mental image of Cody and Tyler standing in the aisle when Nathan and Jill got married. They were 8 and 4 at the time! White shirts black pants / black vest and a black string tie. It was so surreal for me. The past and the present mingling. I mentioned it to the boys and they remember that day too.

    I found a few pics of Nathan's wedding 12 years ago in the same church. Now you can see what memories were going through my head yesterday!

    The groom was not at all nervous. I had to go get him and tell him he had to go up front. He was visiting with friends from work in the pews!
