Today we had the chance to participate in the MS Bridal Show. It was so far our favorite show ever. We had the simplest display we’ve ever had, and ironically the most comments. We got to see a few of our upcoming brides and talk with several more, and it was a lot of fun. Since the setup was so simple, we had time left over to go to church before everything got started, and it was a blessing. Living Springs was having their first baptisms in our new church home. My son, who recently became a Christian, had decided he wasn’t ready to be baptized, but we still had the chance to sit with him and watch him take it all in. It was a great way to start the day, and it really helped to put things into perspective with the show. It was a beautiful reminder that this, here, today, is fleeting. That it’s just passing away, and there’s more to this life than wedding shows and business. There’s a bigger purpose…
We made it back to the show in time to finish the final touches, and had a chance to make some new friends in the surrounding booths. We also met a great cakemaker, right here in Brandon.
At the end of the show, the kids got dropped of by their Nana, and in walks Logan, excited as could be. He promptly showed me his great surprise. He lost his very first tooth!! Yes, my little boy is growing up 🙁 Tonight, we had some worried discussion before bedtime about the Tooth Fairy. Such a dilemma. He wanted to cash in on this new booty, but he really didn’t want to have to trade his first tooth for it, no matter the cost. I mean, c’mon, that thing is more valuable than GOLD right now! 🙂 So, he wrote her the letter above, which states the following:
“Dear Tooth Fairy, Please do not take my tooth.
Thank you, Logan.”
🙂 Atleast I have a little while longer before he’s all grown up. Atleast…until I blink.
