On August 26th my friend Sherie got married. It was an outdoor wedding on the farm where her husband's grandparents lived. Sherie and Jimmy live there now and it was the perfect setting for a beautiful country wedding. Allison had never been to a wedding before and this was the perfect one for her to go to...an outdoor one.
She was so excited to go but who would have thought that it not only was a wedding but the day of her newest crush! Yes, I said NEWEST crush. She's a little flirt and loves the boys! NO, she doesn't get that from me at all! It must in her genes because her Daddy can be a flirt too...he's going to kill me for posting that! Anyway, as we were standing in line for the buffet, Sherie and her stepson, Will were walking by us. I had stopped her to ask something and Allison said something to Will. I didn't hear it but he looked up at Sherie and she said "Go ahead" to him. Allison then took his hand and they started to walk in the field hand in hand. She had asked him to go for a walk! How about that?!? He's an older man!!! She just turned 5 in July and he is 10! What is THAT all about?!?
After dinner, the dancing music started and Allison showed no shyness and was the first out on the floor with Sherie's niece Maddie. I didn't even know she knew that there would be dancing at a wedding but she just jumped right in. I am not sure what she is doing here but it's too funny not to post.
Then the slow songs started and she wanted to dance with Will. He was such a trooper and danced with her and some of the other little girls. Allison is just so infatuated with him. You can see by the look on her face in this picture that she is as she says "a little in love." Too cute...but scary if this is a peek into our future! The next day (Sunday), I asked her if she wanted to go to Grandma's since Saturday is usually her day to go visiting. Her reply was, "Yes, I couldn't go yesterday because I had my big date with Will." What????? I think I'm in trouble! I asked her why she wanted to dance with him and she said "because he looked handsome in that outfit." What????? Where did she come up with that?!?
Fast forward to a couple of weekends later. Allison and I went out on a Saturday to a couple of yard sales. After the last one she asked where we were going next. I told her home. She asked if we could go visit Will so she wouldn't have to remember what he looked like! Have I mentioned that I am TIRED of hearing about Will?!?!? He's a nice young man and all but give me a break! She is FIVE...not fifteen!
