The duties of a flower girl

Flower girls are busy people. They have many responsibilities.

First, you have to look cute. Very important, don't skip this step, or the rest of the steps are invalid.

Second, be ready to pose for pictures, even in the sun.

Third, be ready to throw flowers, of course. Also, let anyone younger than you help out to avoid any crying or tantrums. There should be NO tantrums on the bride and groom's special day.

At the reception, be sure to invite yourself to play with other people's babies. After all, you are adorable, and everyone wants to talk to you, even if it is in German.

Throughout the course of the celebration, play Ring Around the Rosie with the German nephews of the bride. Be sure to sing in English, of course, so that they have no idea what you are saying. Also, don't forget to fall down at the end when the boys least expect it, so that everyone piles on top of each other and makes the crowd giggle.

If you have time after all of that, try to dance with a few complete strangers.

Don't forget to stay up way past your bedtime. After all, when it's midnight in Germany, you still think it's only six pm. And going to bed at 6:00 pm would just be unheard of.

    It looks like you girls are having a wonderful time! I love that you are able to post while there. Don't forget to take pictures of every Smart Car you see along the way. Can't wait for you to get home. Give Katrin and Tom big hugs for me. Post a pic of the bride and groom if you get a chance. Kisses, Michelle
