Brian & Jessicas Wedding

The Wedding was held in a Gazebo in Sterling Park in Virginia. The Brides Grandfather married them and it was a beautiful ceremony. Weather was ideal and reception was right there in a Lovely old Building. My sister Pat and her hubby Frank,Parents of Brian. About 1/2 hour before the Wedding this handsome Gentleman played the Bagpipes. He was there till end of the reception. It was awesome, and so beautiful to hear "Here comes the Bride" done by the bagpipes. Pictures are in reverse order, i have to learn how to do them better. Last but certainally not least is Larry and I with my nephew David. He lives in Texas and it was so good to see him and my sister Peggy as we dont get to see them often


Sorry its taken so long to write about the wedding, but we've had a really bad week. My poor hubby had his brain surgery, chemo and radiation and came through all of it with flying colors. Everyone especially his Doctors were amazed b y his strength and attitude., Then his back startred up again, He has been in excrusating pain all week. Pain starts in lower back and then down the leg. Went to back specialist, had a MRI and x ray. He haS SPINAL STENOSIS, scar tissue from back surgery in the 1990's. deteriating discs etc. He went yesterday for pain management shots and so far it hasn't helped. I'm at a loss what to do next. Please pray for him and that he gets relief.Pain pills don't help either.

Katie Wins

Our local Food Lion had a Back to School coloring contest and our Katie won first prize! She used colored pencils instead of crayons and did an awesome job. The prize was a very nice and sturdy blue & white back pack filled with all kinds of school supplies paper, pencils, glue, b&w composition books,construction paper, crayons, even 3 boxes of tissues and hand sanitizer! The poster for the contest was hanging from the ceiling so it was hard to get a good picture of it. She was so excited when the store called. Thank You Food Lion for sponsoring the contest and thanks for being such a community oriented store.

Radiation is over

Well,its over and Larry did great. He is a real positive person, and had a good time kidding with the tecs and his DR who is a woman. While getting the radiation he got chemo by pills. He has been blessed, had no sickness, no reaction to anything, just lost a bit of hair. He looks and feels great. In the picture l to r-- Michelle one of the tecs, Larry and Dr. Mills. Lucky Guy!!!!!

Getting Ready for Halloween

My son Larry from Virginia was here for Labor Day weekend. As he left he said, Mom you're slipping, its time for your Halloween Decoratioins. He's right, but we have had so much going on with DR's & treatments and my knees are giving me pain but I'll get it done! Here are 2 of the wall hangings I made for my grandkids. All were made with scraps and I really like how they came out.

He has a full schedule with 3 Honors classes. Hes a real good student and a very nice Young Man. His siaster Katie will be 10 in Dec and she is in 4th Grade.

They both have no homework for this week, then it starts.Do you remember your first day of the school year? I do and always looked forward to it. The first picture shows the filled back Pack, next are both of them leaving for the bus and finally the Happy
