11 years on December 5th

We're about to have our 11th Wedding Anniversary so my mother-in-law asked me to scan some of our wedding photos.

Here's us, almost 11 years ago. Now you know what I looked like at 19 years old.



The scanning made Ron look more yellowish than he really is.
I posted too soon. She threw up at midnight then was up until 3. When I thought she was down around 1, it didn't last long.

I'm glad she was able to finally rest, I hope the fever went away. I gave her Tylenol but it's the kind of quandary: do you let her sleep or go check how she is?

Right now, letting her sleep.
My son came down with the croup last Thursday evening (Oct 9th.) The dr. said he was well enough to go back to school Monday but it was just in time for my daughter to come down with it this evening. We got the Rx for her and at midnight, my toddler wakes up, screaming and vomiting in her bed because she too has it (and a fever of 101.2)

Everyone is back to sleep now. Sounds like my daughter will miss at least a couple days of preschool. My toddler is the most pitiful though.

We'd been blessed to be quite well for the last few months but the weather has gotten cooler...

My brother-in-law

As you know, Robert (My husband's brother) had a MRI on his lung Monday. He talked with the doctor this morning. There is a mass in his lung. It is at least partly fat contained. A biopsy is scheduled for next Wednesday. My mother-in-law just learned Robert has been spitting up blood for months now, just was in denial I guess.

I guess he'll be telling his 4 children soon. Please pray for Robert, his wife, the 4 children, Ron (Robert is Ron's youngest sibling) and for my mother-in-law. She watched her husband slowly die of cancer in 2005 and Robert is her youngest child. She is a Christian but is very sad today.

Please pray the biopsy goes well next week. That if it is God's will, it could somehow be a benign mass?

We're sad today.

Quotations by C.S. Lewis

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

--Mere Christianity

"If you are really a product of a materialistic universe, how is it that you don't feel at home there?"

--Encounter with Light

Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.
C. S. Lewis

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis

If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.
C. S. Lewis

What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.
C. S. Lewis

You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
C. S. Lewis

At least every Ten Years...

My cousin (in green) had a great idea, to take this photo, by the tens.

She is 40, I am 30, my (tall:) brother is 20 (in 4 days), my cousin's nephew is 10 and my niece is 3 wks old.

My Little Sister is a Married Woman!

I have nearly 400 photos so I won't post them all (today) OK, I won't post them all. But here is one of the two of us.

Love ya, M! I hope your honeymoon is the beginning of a never-ending fairytale. You're so special to me...

Grandparent's 60th Wedding Anniversary

I recently returned from my grandparents' 60th Wedding Anniversary Celebration.

Here are my grandparents with their 4 children and their children's spouses:



Here is my grandmother's lovely hair before I helped her put it up. She is 84 years old but still beautiful in my eyes.



And here is the very artistically arranged meal:
