So...by now, you are probably wondering what our little family has been up to....
We actually left early Thursday morning to attend our beautiful daughter's wedding! Here is a photo of the happy couple.

Our new son-in-law is wonderful, handsome, and very much loves our daughter. We met his parents this weekend, and they are warm, loving, thoughtful people - exactly the kind of in-laws one hopes that their son or daughter is blessed with. Jan, if you are reading this - thank you for your friendship. I look forward to spending more time together!
Melissa and Nick found a special little chapel at Garden of the Gods for their ceremony. This was actually an 'elopement', that the parents and siblings were invited to share with them - what a blessing for us. Nick will be deployed (his 3rd) sometime in the near future, and it was important to them both to be married prior to his deployment. The beautiful country style chapel seated about 12, with room for a few to sit in the back. Melissa made all of the flowers and decorations, and her veil, which turned out so beautifully. We ladies all went for manicures on Friday morning, and Melissa and I shared Saturday morning at the salon, getting her hair and make up done. We had wonderful family meals on all three nights. Of course, we had SNOW!!! It was beautiful.
Okay, thanks for letting me brag and boast a bit! We are very happy for them, and wish them all of God's blessings.
Hope that you are all enjoying the Super Bowl - the commercials have been pretty good, and half time was even fun.
Take care, and I'll be by to see what you are up to as soon as I can get there!
