my cute little mess of a boy!

This past weekend BooderBean was the ring bearer in our cousin Toni and Greg's wedding in Kansas! We had a really great time and everything was so beautiful at their wedding! BooderBean and i called it our Roadtrip!
So...BooderBean is 3 1/2 years old and was supposed to be still and quiet and reverand during a wedding ceremony...can we see where this is going???
He did pretty good, he did about as good as you can expect a 3 1/2 year old to do after not having much of a lunch and missing nap time! Below are a few of the highlights from his first wedding experience:
  • holding ring pillow in mouth like a dog
  • pretty sure BooderBean thought everyone was there to see HIM, he hammed it up quite a bit
  • he earned $2 from the groomsmen, they bribed him to stand on his "X"
  • he wondered around the stage a few times...in circles, lookin' for his momma
  • had a super sad meltdown looking for his momma in the congregation when he couldnt' see me. it wasn't a bad meltdown, it was a sad one.
  • insisting that he had to go back on "stage" to stand with Jenna, the flowergirl and his new BFF
  • getting bored and sitting on the steps to the alter
  • taking the fake rings off the pillow and playing catch
  • sticking one of the fake rings IN his mouth and causing me to hyperventilate thinking he was going to choke
  • smiling so sweetly as he walked down the isle with the flowergirl, and then helping her pick up all the petals after because they "needed" to be back in the basket!
  • smiling so sweetly for photos before and after, because he thought he had just gotten married (this is what he told me after)
No i didn't get any funny photos of him during the actual wedding but i am sure the photographers snapped a few...because Lord knows they had plenty of opportunity :)

What a wonderful little boy you have! He was handsome, funny, smart, and acted like a complete gentleman with the flower girl. What more could someone want in a boy?

He did a great job and helped break the ice a little. Kept us smiling. Could you email me your pictures that you took?
