Mother Son Dance Song (Grab Tissues)

Hello Everyone,
I am safely home and just wanted to share a few updates and such.
Sorry I haven't been around visiting yet- I came home with a sinus /chest infection.
We are in the middle of a state of emergency with our city completely closed down- we received around 23'-25' inches of snow since last night.

The couple is officially married and we couldn't be prouder.
Here is the couple being announced

My daughter on the left  and the brides sister on the right
 Yes I look terrible- everyone was watching and taking pictures, my son was singing and of course I was crying!!!

This is a video of the music my son chose for the Mother-Son dance!!!

Biggest Fan- Backstreet Boyz

It takes a lot to know what is love
It's not the big things, but the little things
That can mean enough
A lot of prayers to get me through
And there is never a day that passes by
I don't think of you
You were always there for me
Pushing me and guiding me
Always to succeed

You showed me
When I was young just how to grow
You showed me
Everything that I should know
You showed me
Just how to walk without your hands
'Cause mom you always were
The perfect fan

God has been so good
Blessing me with a family
Who did all they could
And I've had many years of grace
And it flatters me when I see a smile on your face
I wanna thank you for what you've done
In hopes I can give back to you
And be the perfect son


You showed me how to love
You showed me how to care
And you showed me that you would
always be there
I wanna thank you for that time
And I'm proud to say you're mine


'Cause mom you always were,
mom you always were
Mom you always were,
you know you always were
'Cause mom you always were... the perfect fan

I love you mom

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful good wishes and thoughts.
You are all the best!
I will share better photos as I get them

  16. OH!! Thanks so much for that video, perhaps in a weeks time I might be able to swallow, thats if the lump thats stuck in there has gone.Now I know why you should take contact lenses out before you

  17. Congrats to the happy couple. So sorry you've been ill & had such nasty weather to deal with.

    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful song. There are so many Father/Daughter songs out there but it's rare to find a Mother/Son song. Being the mother of a son, I LOVE this song. I have passed it on to one of my son's friends who is getting married in the spring & my son is an usher.

  18. Yeah, right, like I am gonna really watch that video and cry like a baby this early in the morning. I am practically crying just reading the words! LOL My son has a serious girlfriend and I get all panic stricken just thinking about the day he might venture out to get married.

    Seriously, the wedding pictures look fabulous and I definitely think you look great :) Congratulations.

  19. So wonderful and such a cute couple! Thanks for sharing...hope to see more pics! Be safe if you are out on the roads!

  20. So handsome, so pretty, yes and that include you Dawn. Wow, thank you for sharing this with us. How special, it is wonderful you have such a bond with your son. I hope your new daughter in law knows how lucky she is.

  21. Congratulations to your son and your pretty daughter-in-law. You are looking so gorgeous !! Thanks for sharing these special moments with us!
