Family Celebration - and FINALLY - A RING!

We missed June's Family Celebration. We decided from now on to simply say they will be on the 3rd Saturday of the month...and realize that not all will be able to make it...

Kent came in this a.m. and gave me the ring to sequester. He said he was doing it today - at the family celebration. I am fairly certain Maria will not be expecting it. 

Here we are in July, celebrating June and July's birthdays....and singing....

Father's Day...and singing

And Krista and Luke's first anniversary...and singing

At this point I said something like, "So, we are celebrating Krista and Maria's birthday, Father's Day and Luke and Krista's anniversary. Is there anything else we are celebrating that I'm forgetting?" 

Kent stepped forward and said how much Maria loved our family...and then took her hand...

Got on his knee...WITH THE RING...

And surprised her!

She said yes!

Thanks to Arielle and Carrie for taking photos. The funny thing is that I forgot to clue Carrie in as to why I asked her to she turned the camera off AFTER the anniversary song and didn't know how to turn it back on when she realized Kent was proposing. We tried. LOL  

We really need to practice this singing bit as we do it so often. LOL 


Special Occasions


Every time we celebrate, we are remember Rev. Harvey, the Gospel Explosion, people we loved and lessons we learned at Elmendorf AFB...circa 2002 - 2005. 

Annie - "I'm 3." 

A long week for Cory. 

Benny & Livie

The kids are old enough now to love playing with Papa. He's in heaven. 

There were some gifts too.
