♥♥♥ Wedding Texas style ♥♥♥

"HOWDY" YA'ALL" Well what a fun time I had in Texas...This was the first thing I did was get my Hands on the sweet Little Kyra...and Girls she is even more sweeter in person...Pictures do not do this little one justice.....

The Kids got me this YUMMY Birthday cake...How cool was that !!






My Daughter Gina and my Grand daughter Alison...This was the first time Gina got to see her in a few years...





Kyra and my Great grand son Lucas





Heather Kyra's Mama...Girl's Heather and her family gave us all a BIG Texas welcome...I never seen so much food that her Mama fixed for us...had us over to her house 2 nights in a row for dinner...Plus Heather's family was all their also...They say everything is Bigger in Texas and they sure proofed it to us....








These are 3 of my Great grand kids, Kyra, Lucas and Yazzy who is 5 months old...These are all Gina's Grand babies....










Grandma Gina with Kyra...




Are they not a Beautiful Couple....It's no wonder they made a beautiful baby together I am so glad to see my Grand son marry into this wonderful family...They treat him like their own...

Kyra in her Wedding dress...Girls' this baby was passed around like a sack of Potatoes that day...And loved every minute of it...





Saying "I DO" And oh Yes I cried like a baby...Just to see how Happy this young couple was...







































Heather in front of Limo at the Bachelor party They had a black Limo for the Girls and a white one for the guys...And a good time was had by all that night...





















Gina being seated by Her Joshie, Ring Bearer is Lucas, Flower girl is Heather's little niece, Josh and his Step Daddy Bob...



















" And look at all the YUMMY Goodies Here...



Girls I had the best time that I have ever had in my whole life...It was non-stop for 6 days and I would not take a million for all the great memories I made while there...


To see this fine young man finally find this wonderful Heather and her family, And to see his little family and the way that Heather's family have just "Welcome" him as their own and to see their little Kyra doing so much better with her health's issues...It was indeed a real Hankie time for me...My heart was just bursting with pride...


Now to Dale and Barbara Berna and their family Thank you so much for accepting my Josh into your family and for all you do for these kids...If I met my Maker today I could go in peace knowing how much your Daughter Heather and Kyra Have filled his heart with L♥ve.....Your the Best....

May all of you have a Blessed Day...I know I sure have been Blessed in my life...The only regrets I have is that my Mama didn't live long enough to see this special reunion of Love.....


Hugs and Smiles Gl♥ria

B-day wishes! I appreciate them so much.

Stop by and leave me a comment on my B-day giveaway post! I don't draw the two winners until tomorrow afternoon so you have time. You must have your name in that pot. It wouldn't be the same without you entering. I mentioned your July B-day as well! I didn't think you would mind. :)

{{{{{{{{{{{Gloria}}}}}}}}}}} What a fabulous post this was. I smiled the whole way through. Look at that baby. Boy has she grown by leaps and bounds and she's so beautiful. All of the kids are! Is Yazzy her real, full name? Too cool! And Lucas is a total looker!
Gina looks just like you! And her daughter Alison is gorgeous. Like I said, the whole family is beautiful.

I am SO happy that you had this week with the people you love most. I wish there were more pics of you. I wanted to see you all dressed up for the wedding. And oh how gorgeous all of that looked. The cake! PRETTY!!!
