Joining Families…

It would be good for me to make myself a list before I arrive at major functions like weddings. After the fact I realize what I missed because I get distracted in the moment. Heat and sunshine take a lot out of me and I find I’m less successful in catching everyone and everything at an event.

Enough excuses already, here are the shots I got of the families that are joining each other in this latest union in my family.

Yippee for Friday! We are inching closer to having everything back in place including bedroom doors and closet doors. We had to make some adjustments in closets so Dear still has to go to the basement to find his hanging clothes. We are looking forward to a weekend at home to be able to wrap up some things around this old house. Our daughter Katie and our Son in law Andrew will be hitting the road from the East Coast to our coast early on Saturday. They should be arriving here next weekend. Katie will be staying with us for up to 7 months while Andrew is deployed. Hopefully the door on their bedroom will be back in place this weekend. Oh dear, I just realized I need to clear out the closet in that room for them, too.

What’s on your agenda this weekend?

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Great pictures of the wedding celebration! I’m so glad you are almost finished with your floor project. That’s a big deal! It must feel like a new house! Glad Katie will be with you…..

  2. Nice pictures! The bride sure looks like her mom. Wow, 7 months! I know you will love having her, but that’s a long time to be separated. Will be praying for them.

  3. Beautiful family photos. The bride’s mom is doing something right. She looks like another sister. Amazing.

    Yay for getting everything accomplished. It will be fun having Katie home with you.

  4. Wonderful family. I always forget to get photos at family gatherings. I’m always having too much fun talking to think about it.

    I hope everything gets done to your liking. Have fun this weekend.

  5. My agenda this weekend? We braved the heart in Sunland to visit Payne Foundation’s native plant sale. We were so very glad to be back in our cooler town!
