My Favorite Photo of the Day

I just received some great wedding photos from Mary's sister (thanks Rachel), and this is my favorite photo of the bunch. I love my grandson Thomas so much, and this captures the last few minutes of Ben and Mary's reception when Thomas had danced his little heart out and let me hold him. He was definitely ready for bed, but he didn't want to miss the sparkler send off for the newlyweds. This is a rare photo, because usually Thomas is so energetic and busy that he will seldom stay in my arms for any period of time. I enjoyed every minute! It seems like just yesterday that Thomas was so little and could barely stay up past 7 PM without being way too cranky. The night of the reception he asked all the pretty ladies (young and old) to dance, he ran around looking very dapper in his tux - even with the back belt of the vest undone and dangling along behind him, and he was up way past 9 PM, so pleasant to be with. Thanks for the hugs Thomas - they will have to last me quite some time!
