More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

In my age I am mostly invited to funerals. But this time it was a marriage ! Two years ago a young couple had bought a house in our street, the owners had moved into a flat, they were too old to keep the house.

To my and all other neighbour's surprise we suddenly were invited to their wedding !

The wedding took place in the church "St. Fran├žois d'Assise" in Waterloo, which I had never seen.


A little girl and a little boy should walk in front of the couple carrying two white baloons.


The little boy refused and cried and sobbed until the little girl took both baloons and walked alone in front of the couple. We all laughed, he showed already that marriage was nothing for him !


the inside of the church had beautiful windows



the happy couple


Greating everybody in front of the church


They had arrived in this little car and it also took them to


this old farm which had been modernized and transformed into a restaurant with a big reception for weddings or other celebrations.

and I was happy too ! outside I discovered the first signs of spring !!
