Happy Wedding Day

"Where are you going, my little one, little one?
Where are you going, my baby my own?
Turn around and your two,
Turn around and your four,
Turn around and your a young girl going out of the door."
**********
That was a very popular song when I was about 11 years old, and I remember seeing tears in my mothers eyes as she sang it. I had no understanding then of how a mother feels,....... but I do now.
How very happy I am for my beautiful daughter and her new husband.... Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Platt.
Ahhh yes, my baby girl is married.....

...and her sweet husband has been completely accepted into the family as demonstrated by Lydia..
..and the other nieces and nephews. Don't they look happy with Aunt Hillary and Uncle Jake?

The wedding reception at the Ellis M. Sanders house was very beautiful, and the weather co-operated completely. Cali has many pictures of the wedding, at the temple and reception up on her blog so look to the right and click on 'Cali and Travis' and check it out.

Her wedding cake was delicious.....

I feel like I should put a disclaimer before these next pictures.... but then, they are MY GIRLS!
The night before the wedding the sisters got together to throw a little party for Hillary. Somehow it ended up with a Morrocan theme.. Go figure.

Someone stayed up a little too late I think.

AHHH..... Here are the REAL sisters.

And our family and friends...

The Bride and Groom with the Brides family and Aunts and Uncles.

This picture is what Grandpa Bill would have called "The Whole Famdamly".


We did a lot of other things in the last three weeks while we were in Nauvoo, but this was the highlight of our trip. I will post pictures of the pageant and family fun in a few days.

As a Mom I get the happy and saddness that goes with these events. You have to be happy to have gotten them to this very important life event but there is a saddness that they won't be under foot at home any longer. (I know it can't just be me that feels this way) I am sure with Hillary being the last of the girls there is a special feeling there. Hillary was absolutely beautiful and Jake seems like a great addition to the family. Congrats!!!

Hooray for Hillary! For some reason I feel really left out. I guess it's because I love your whole family so much and because you introduced me to Nauvoo. That was a wonderful trip and now I long to go back to that gorgeous temple. In case I never thanked you for taking me before, "THANK YOU!"
