Aaah


A very self-indulgent post (mind you, what other kinds are there?) - I took Grandson the other day to buy a white shirt because he was to be page boy at a wedding (at which Granddaughter was to be flower girl). He was intrigued by the different views of himself in the mirrors.



Then he looked at his feet and enquired, "Why are my feet in the reflection when the mirror doesn't go down to the ground?" Granny was unable to think of a succinct answer... ok, an answer. But we found a suitable shirt.








Before the bride's arrival, Granddaughter was clutching her fluffy blanket, which wasn't part of the outfit.




A certain amount of finger-sucking took place but they behaved impeccably.



Can you tell the difference between Grandson and Uncle Son? There were lots of men in kilts, Thimbleanna!



Daughter 2 and her niece enjoy a cuddle.



They pose with their dad, Son-in-Law 1.



In a quiet moment, Granddaughter admires her bouquet,



and Grandson stands on a plinth. It was a lovely day.

  2. Oh, how marvellous to have a wedding like that to attend! Difference between Grandson and Uncleson - bow tie/ straight tie and two tassels/three tassels on the sporrans and quite a bit of height.

    Six weeks before I get back to Argyll...

  3. What style and aplomb. There were kilts at my son's wedding and they certainly looked very handsome. All we need now is a glimpse of you and Mr Life.

  5. You do have such a beautiful family. I have a picture of my husband dressed in a suit to be a ring bearer sitting on my desk. He was 4 and so adorable.

  6. Which tartan please?
    I am quite familiar with kilts...my sister's ex husband is in a pipe band and my nephew also used to be. Nephew ( now 50 ) was a very accomplished piper.
    The pipe band they were in wore a clan Cameron tartan.
    When my sister married back in 1963 the men wore kilts and the brides maid ( me ) and flowers girls wore red. My that's a long time ago.
    I think there may be or used to be as many pipe bands in NZ as in Scotland.

  7. Uncle Son's kilt is Hunting McDonald of the Isles, and little N's is something called Scottish National. There is not so much choice of tartans for children's kilts; we picked the one we thought would harmonise best with the groom's, and in fact it looked quite similar.

  8. I LOVE the photos; they are beautiful. I have a real weakness for kilts too--perhaps that's my Scots ancestry. ;)

  9. Your grandchildren are adorable! The men wore kilts at our son's wedding. He wore a Campbell tartan kilt and looked so handsome. Couldn't talk my husband into wearing a kilt, but he did wear a tux with a tartan cummerbund!

  15. Awww, they look darling! I find it lovely to see the Scottish people keeping traditions alive. We went to the Tattoo here in Melbourne a month or so ago - fabulous as always.
