Pictures with Tara

Several weeks ago, we meet up with my friend Tara and she took our school pictures and family picture. She always does a really nice job. Check her blog out here .

She did a great job. You will be seeing more of these pictures soon. Like when I finally change them here on the blog or when Christmas cards come out in less than 8 weeks. But this one is one of my favorites from that afternoon with her.

Don't ya love it?

My mom and brother and his family also joined us.

If you are on Mom's Christmas card list, you may be seeing this picture again. Just act surprise, when you see it again.

Have a great weekend.

70th Anniversary

I am not sure how, but it is already Friday and I am still blogging about what happened last weekend. I told you it was a huge and exciting one; however, I never imagined it would take me a whole week to blog about it.

Anyway, on Sunday evening we celebrated my Grandparents 70th Wedding Anniversary. Talk about a milestone. They both celebrated their 91st birthdays this year also.

This picture was taken at their 50th Anniversary!! (Wow--a lot has changed.)

We have so much to be thankful for. They have always been such excellent examples for us. They have taught us all the value of faith, family and work. Their support throughout the years is a gift we will cherish forever!!! Thanks Grandpa and Grandma!! We love you.

Here it is, the post I promised yesterday. It was definitely an exciting weekend. On Saturday, I attended my 20 year class reunion. Doesn't that sound strange? I don't feel that old. Well anyway I went. I had a really good time!!!
Here is the Homecoming Banner we painted 20 years ago--(who has to store that thing?)
Pam, Joni and I in the old cheerleader pose. (Petula you were missed!!!)

The highlight of the evening, was no--not the way to loud rock music from the 80s and 90s!! I actually got to meet a blogging buddy!!! Yes, I met Carol from Joy in the Journey!!! I graduated with her husband Shawn. I have been reading her blog for at least a year and half or so and finally got to meet her in person.
That was so much fun. I realized once I got home I talked to her quite a bit, but I don't think I said more than hello to Shawn (oops, sorry Shawn--hope you are doing well.). Carol says on one of her next trips down to IN we get together again and we are in hopes that Tara will join us!!!

Well--there is actually more to my exciting weekend; however, that is enough excitement for day. I don't want to overwhelm you all.

I am sure by now, most of you already know that Matt broke his hand at work a week ago Friday.

Sorry, that I am now just getting around to posting about it.

As you can see it still swells on occasion. His hand is usually in a splint--but he can take the splint off to wash his hand.

This picture was taken on Sunday. Well over a week after it happened!!

Matt is doing pretty well. He is learning to do a lot of things with his left hand. Thankfully he has a low maintenance hair style and he can feed himself. I am tying his shoes and his tie for church on Sunday. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

We had a huge and EXCITING weekend. I'll post more about that later. I don't want to waste all material in one post.
