Can you hear the bells?

Wedding bells I mean!  We are in the last few days of wedding craziness before my oldest is wed to his beautiful girl!  I can't believe that my baby is about to take a bride!  It's been a bit busy here - last minute additions to the to do list.  Packing the car - making sure the boys all packed their groomsmen attire!

I saw my baby in full Scottish dress today - I have to brag a little - he looks pretty darn good in a skirt kilt! (Do not EVER make the mistake of calling a kilt a skirt ~ask me how I know~).  He'll be wearing his kilt, Prince Charlie coat & vest, tux shirt, sporran, sgian dubh, flashes, hose and ghillies. I think there are other things but I'm not up on all of my Gaelic yet - however, I'm feeling very Scottish at the moment.

Believe me, I'll be posting pictures when it's all over.  I'm SO excited!!  I don't think the reality of it all hit me until I saw him dressed as a groom - I've been a bit teary eyed ever since.  My Mom is excited as well - she loved the Scottish attire!

This gives you an idea of what my son will wear - although the tartan plaid will be different.  His heritage is out of the Campbell Clan - his tartan is a small blue and green plaid.

I can't talk about Amanda's wedding gown - loose lips sink ships...and ruin wedding surprises!  I will say that she is going to be a beautiful bride!  Goes without saying when you start with such a beautiful woman!

We had dinner Monday night with the gentleman who will be staying at the farm and keeping an eye on things.  He was such a nice man - we all had a great time and hope that he'll want to do this again so we can slip away from time to time.  It means a lot to be able to go off for a few days and know that all will be looked after and cared for - what a relief!

I'm looking forward to spending some time next week with my brother and his family - they arrive this week but we won't have much time together until after the big day! 

Although I'll be off enjoying these wonderful days, I've planned some posts that should appear "by magic".  We'll see if Blogger can deliver what it promises!  If not, I'll post as soon as I can once we return.   Orders placed between now and Sunday will be mailed out first thing Monday.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and grace 'cause....

My baby's getting married!



  1. So happy for all of you! SAVOR every moment! Praying for all of y'all!


    My sister is married into the "Campbell" clan- her father-in-law is from Scotland, her last name is even Campbell!

  3. Cheri,
    Thank you - need the prayers!

    I think if we work really hard on this, we can somehow make it end up so that we are related :)

  4. Cheri,

    Congratulations! How wonderful!

    Please post photos of the wedding!

    Is the new couple going to live by you?

    A new covenant family! Praise God!

    Blessings to you and the new couple!
