The Usher

Shortly after Wade asked Sarah to marry him, Sarah asked me whether it would be ok for them to have Cooper be their ring bearer. I nodded through tears- we were so touched that they wanted him to be a part of their special day.

Sadly, Cooper didn't get the memo. Wade asked him and he said no, thank you.
His reason?
"I did that once before and it wasn't very much fun".
(he's nothing if not honest....and polite)

Poor kid- evidently his memories from when he was 4 1/2 and was the ring bearer at my brothers wedding weren't so good.
Fast forward 6 months and although Cooper never did change his mind about being the ring bearer, he did agree to being an usher.

His specific job?
Walking the Aunt Kathy & Nana down the aisle.
He took his job very seriously- and I know Nana appreciated it so much.


He was also drafted at the last minute to hand out the wedding programs.
He doesn't do well with change- especially at the last minute.


This time though- he did a fabulous job.
And truly....could he BE any more handsome in his tux?


If it didn't cost so much, I might make him wear a tux for the rest of his life!


Great job buddy!
We sure do love you-
(and so do Wade & Sarah)

Good for him. I learned late in life that it is very good to decline jobs you don't want to do but volunteer for jobs you then will do perfectly and happily. And yes, he looked very handsome ... like the rest of his family.
