Vow Renewal Party #3

Mrs. Lopez was so kind to make us a cake. I looked at several

different kinds and picked one that had 4 individual cakes of

different sizes representing the 4 girls. Then she added a bonus

and made all the 18 Grandkids a cupcake each and topped them

all with pictures. We loved it. Thank you so much Mrs. Lopez.

She is such a blessing to all of us.

Two handsome guys

Pauline Jones was in charge of the kitchen and putting out the

food and as usual she did a Great Job!

Thanks Mrs. Jones

Marc drinking one of the little kids juice boxes.

John took the video of the Vow Renewal and the reception.

He is always so willing to help out our family.

Thanks John.

Tabitha and Carole enjoying being together.

A Beautiful Lady

God truly blessed me with my wonderful Mother.

I am so thankful she was able to come.

She was so helpful and, as always we had so much fun


Pastor and Mrs Strange

I am so thankful for them. They mean so much to all our families.

Florence and Chuck

Now that Florence is retired she doesn't have a free moment.



Praise the Lord for my wonderful


She raised a Great son that I love very much. :-)

Jonathan, one of many photographers

At the reception having a good time.


This is our wonderful family. I still find it hard to believe

that our four daughters are all grown up with families

of their own. I praise and thank the Lord everyday for

everyone in my family. Can't wait to hang this new

photo in our living room of all of us together.

When we were getting ready to leave we realized

that someone had decorated our car.

Josh works for us on Fridays and Yale

was telling him....he's fired. :-)


Our Getaway Car

While Yale was firing Josh....I was thinking

awwww, he did a good job. :-)

Now, off to our HONEYMOON!!!!!

Thank you all for coming and making our

day extra special.

Love you Honey!

Thanks for the unforgettable 40 wonderful years.

Happy Anniversary!!

Happy Birthday Keela

We Love You

My Big Brother Josh

Silas loves to play like a cowboy.
Grandpa bought him a little riding horse and
a new cowboy hat. He'll get on his horse and
jump around and go "Naaayyy"
Josh decided he would have more fun riding on his back.

Josh is a fantastic big brother. Even though he's 14, he
gives Silas lots of special attention.
In these next few photos you can
see how much they love each other. As a
Grandmother I think sometimes he plays a
little to rough with him but
Silas loves it. He thinks he's one of the big boys.

Josh is the horse now.....Silas rides on his back

looking at me smiling going Naaayyyy.

Having so much fun.

He loves his big brother Josh.

I love how they play together and have FUN.

Our Thanksgiving Tree 2010

Every year we make a Thanksgiving Tree.
We have so much to be thankful for.
First we make a tree for the door...

...then we stamp leaves with different colored

ink and paper to sort of look like fall leaves... we cut out the leaves and put photo

tabs on the back to stick to the door/tree...

....then we put all the leaves in this cute little

pumkin tea pot. Whenever anyone comes

over they can get out a few leaves and

write down what they're thankful for

and fill up our Thanksgiving Tree.
I love reading what everyone puts

on the tree....especially the little ones.

This is what it looks like today. I will

post another Thanksgiving Tree photo

on Thanksgiving so you can see it all

filled up.

I am so thankful for my family and

the traditions that we have. The girls

have carried on this tradition. I think

Taylin outdid me this year. You can

see her tree at " "

God has blessed me so much...more than I deserve.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
