Memory Lane ~ Here Comes the Brides

 I'm joining in with Memory Lane Monday,
it was truly Dressing Up

"Here Comes the Brides"

 These first photos are just about 21 years old,  
but seem like they were taken just

My Sweet Daughters, My Nieces 
& the little guy is My Son

we played dress up on a Hot 
Summer day,  
My oldest daughter Mandy wore My wedding dress, 
her sister Nikki wore my older sisters 1st wedding dress,
My 2 nieces wore their Mom's & their Aunt's other wedding dress,
(thank goodness for a divorce & 2nd marriage)
Ian My son is wearing his Dad's Tux

My sister & I took the girls to the photo studio
to have these professional photos done,
I think Ian stayed home to take his nap
The photo shoot was
complete with little bouquets that I quickly made
from flowers in our garden & my neighbors...
The girls were treated like they were each 
a Princess 
at the studio
You can see it in their 

      Nikki    &    Mandy

    Ashley  &   Katelyn

Ian  is of course the Boy

All these little kids are now
23 - 30 years old...

It seem it was in the blink of an eye

This bottom photo was taken in 2001
10 years later 
Mandy in Her wedding dress,  Dancing with
Her Brother Ian...

Priceless  Memories
