Our House

two cats in the yard
The picture makes sense if you listen to this and pay attention at the 1:20 mark (for those of you who were not an impressionable seventeen when you first heard it and therefore have never forgotten the lyrics).  

Most days when I come home, that CSN&Y song automatically runs through my head.  Wonder why.

Kate and Jay were here for Easter (and a few wedding planning sessions)!  After an amazing early service at FUMC, we headed west to have dinner and a visit with Sa, Gramps, George Jr., Dena, Joe, Cynthia, Scotty, and Maggie.  It was a lovely afternoon and required an equally lovely nap once we returned home.

Jay and Kate before church.

E.W.'s fired up.

George, Jr. subs in for George, Sr. 

Sa observes the madness

A sister and a niece.

One groom and two brides...

...the other groom is busy
getting steamrolled by Scott and Maggie.

Maggie makes her escape.

Gramps just enjoys it all.

As far as the B'ham crowd goes, the Easter bunny did not bring Ellie her baby sister, but surely he was too busy for that today!

White Dresses, Then and Now

She wore this white dress at the altar a few (well, more than a few!) years ago. In a couple of weeks she'll wear another white dress and stand at that same altar. Our hearts are full.

In the Mail

Getting a letter from a little girl in El Salvador just made my day.  I'm so grateful to Compassion for our connection.

Tift Green Weekend

This year's Tift Green was, shall we say, a bit more laid back than last year.  E.W. and Putter had it all to themselves...
