When a friend in Arkansas sent me this clipping from the Sunday, October 8, 2006, edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, little did I know that the young lady in the picture with Ben would be my daughter-in-law two years later.
I doubt Ben knew it either, since I don’t think they had started dating. When he did ask her to dinner not long after that, Claire replied, “I think I could do that.” They’ve been inseparable ever since.
Claire is the second oldest of six children. I can only imagine what life was like in the Bennett household.
She was a cute little girl, as you can see from these pictures in their wedding rehearsal video. I really do wish I could have known both of my daughters-in-law when they were growing up.
Last weekend Ben and Claire brought us a DVD of their wedding pictures. In honor of Claire’s birthday today, I’d like to share a few of my favorites.
So that’s four April birthdays down and two more to go. For more Show and Tell on this Friday, visit Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home.
