We participated in a family Super Bowl pool, just as we had for years and years and years. This year when the game ended, Daddy said, "We won."
I, of course, didn't believe him. We had been part of the pool for a long time. We never won anything. As I was questioning whether or not Daddy was messing with us, the phone rang. Grammie said, "How does it feel to win?" After talking to Uncle Steve I said to Daddy, "Well, that will pay for the dresses."
We had to order the dresses very quickly. The bridal store created this crazy deadline that was only a few days after Samantha was able to ask all her bridesmaids to be in the wedding.
The girls had an early dismissal day, so we went to the bridal store. The girls tried on the dress, glowing the entire time. I stared as they twirled the gown. It seemed as if they grew up while we blinked. They were so excited, but I was a both excited and sad. My babies were going to be bridesmaids. How long would it be before we were trying on their bridal gowns?
