A Great Reason to Celebrate…

…our daughter Katie completed her coursework for her degree from University of Washington!

A wonderful reason to don the Oscar de la Renta and go out on the town…

We chose to celebrate at Palisade Restaurant at the waterfront on Elliott Bay…


The views of Seattle were great and the food and company were lovely…


Dear, Ellen b., Katie, Josh, Laura, Steve, and Lana G!


Our two lovely daughters…


Laura and Josh…


Ellen b. and Dear


Josh and Katie…



Our daughter in love, Laura.

The proud mama!

Isn’t she lovely!?

We are so proud of your perseverance in the challenges of changing schools and finishing well, Katie. We pray for God’s richest blessings in your life as you continue to grow and remember that God is the provider of all good things!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
