Nostalgia

So, Matt was late getting home today and I wanted to do something to kill time. So, I popped in our wedding video for the kids to see. It was their first time seeing it and the commentary was hilarious. Jesse has been trying to figure weddings out ever since we told him we were having another baby. He heard somewhere that you need to be married to have a baby so he kept asking when Matt and I were getting married. We thought we had explained it thoroughly but as we watched the video he kept asking, "So is this your wedding that you had when you had me? When was the wedding you had when Karis was born?" And, "But I wanted to walk down the lane with you, can I walk down the lane with you?" Karis was all about the attire, "Mommy, I want to wear a princess dress just like you!" And, "Why were you wearing a crown?"
The best part was the family dance party we had while we watched the reception. Matt came home just in time to teach the kids some swing dancing moves, although it looks like Jesse has some practicing to do before he twists Karis' arm off!
Now, I know I am hormonal, but I kept tearing up the whole time, missing old, dear friends. And, my goodness we were all so skinny (not that we are overweight now, just healthy and we've had a few kids looking)!! So, I'm thinking we need to have a 10 year anniversary party to get everyone together again and of course, to revisit the choreographed dance to RESPECT. So much fun!

I think you need to post the video on your blog so we can all laugh at how skinny we were!!!

I wish I coudl post it on my blog but right now it is on VHS, not sure how to work that...

And the Respect dance is awesome, even on video! The best part is when during the song before it we were "getting ready" and gathering sunglasses. We looked so obvious and everyone around us was wondering what we were doing!

Aww...I miss you Jane! A reunion is definitely in order. We were recently discussing (as we flew back and forth for Christmas) that next time we want to drive out to RI. And we would certainly stop in PA on our way :)

A reunion would be very fun! I'd love to see the video as well. I remember the dance and how much fun we had, but it has been a while. What about the guys serenade to you. You should put that up too.
