We Had Excitement, and Now We Don't

We had a wedding here on January 13, 2018.  It was a theme wedding, entirely planned by my grandson and his wife.  They are Vikings, wed outside with snow gently falling and temperatures not too cold.

It was actually a pretty perfect event with only her father and sister, his mother, brother and grandparents (that's us) and three of their very close friends.  The bride had cooked the food (I helped a little) but the Instant Pot was the star.

They live with us until his work contract is up in August, then they will move to the other side of the country.

The gift from the groom to the bride was a black Hummer3.

We raised Corey and he has always felt more like a son than a grandson.  Now we have a new daughter-in-law and grandson.

Today and everyday I am grateful that Corey has found someone to appreciate him and love him as much as he loves her...and their son.
xx, Carol

  13. How romantic. This is a perfect wedding. I love everything about it.
    I'm praying you, DH and Cory will adjust well to the move. Even though you have time before the move, I know it will still be hard.

  14. Sounds like a fun little wedding! My granddaughter recently got married with only their families and grandparents attending (plus a couple of uncles). Sometimes that can be the best. Congrats to the whole happy family!

  16. Oh, what a striking Viking couple! A fantastic idea and so unique, at least to my knowledge. Always happy to hear good news. Although them moving across the country won't be such good news for you, I'm sure you will miss them terribly.
