Carolyn has posted pictures and a story about Shaun’s deployment ceremony.
I’m editing pictures. Here’s my favorite, but it’s not of the bride or groom. I was standing on the stairs. It’s the only way I can get a picture of her without having to look up.
Ok, ok….here’s the bride and groom – Doug and JoAnn:
Here’s Bethany and AnnaLeigh goofing around. In the first picture, AnnaLeigh had commented about Beth being so much taller than her, so Beth stooped down to make her feel better (click on them to make them larger). AnnaLeigh and Beth were best friends many years ago, and were baptized together when Beth was 6. AnnaLeigh’s daddy (JoAnn’s first husband) was our pastor from 1989-1993.
JoAnn has 4 children and Doug has 2. I could not get just one good picture with all of them in it, along with JoAnn’s mom. So here they are, in 2 pics….
L to R: AnnaLeigh (older daughter) JoAnn’s mom in the back, Bethany (JoAnn’s younger daughter), Caleb in the red shirt (her youngest son), JoAnn and Doug, Doug’s 2 daughters (I don’t know their names). In the 2nd pic is JoAnn’s oldest child, Brandon. She has a Brandon and a Bethany, just like we do.
Note to Doug G….Brandon is also in law school at U of H.
One lady there asked me to do a cake for a shower she is giving in April. I got so many compliments on how the cake tastes, I didn’t dare tell anybody it’s just cake mixes. I add extra eggs, but that’s all I do differently. Maybe there’s not that many people that actually make their own cakes anymore, so they don’t know what a cake mix cake tastes like. And I make buttercream icing.
It was very crowded in that house. Beth gets claustrophobic when she is in the middle of that many people…and she can even see over most people’s heads. She has to get out because she feels kind of like she can’t breathe. It’s worse when you’re down where I am.
