A Wedding !

My baby, Randy will be getting married. He asked his sweet girlfriend Ashley to be his wife on May 8, and the date they set for the wedding is November 14. Randy couldn't have made a better choice. We love her so much. We're super excited and can't wait to make Ashley an "official" member of the family.

No that is not an engagement photo, just a snapshot I took, and fell in love with while we were looking at parks one afternoon.

Diana's 1st Communion!

Diana Grace had her 1st Communion on Sunday morning at The Basilica of St.Paul. She was so sweet and certainly knew this was her special day. (She even told me her face hurt from smiling for all the pictures). Following Mass we were all treated to a lovely Sunday Brunch at Aunt Catfish's on the River by Karl and Pat (Diana's parents). It was a beautiful day with time enjoyed with family and friends. Congratulations Diana, We Love you!

Beautiful Baptism !

Our niece, Marissa turned 8 years old last Friday, and was Baptized on Saturday by her Uncle Darin. Marissa sures holds a special place in his heart, and by the looks of it I think she's crazy about him as well. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful Baptism, followed by a delicious dinner provided by Jodi and Link (Marissa's parents). Congratulations Marissa, We Love you!

Emma Visits !

Actually Kim, Russell, Samantha, Davis and Emma visited. Jim had to stay behind for school, and we did miss him, but were lucky enough to have Kim and the children come from Washington for a spring break visit. I'm so sad they weren't able to stay longer but we sure packed a whole lot of fun into a very short week. We started by visiting the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse. Emma and I stayed down on the ground while Kim and the boys climbed all the way to the top. It was a beautiful day !
This is a picture of us after eating at one of our favorite restaurants, Cracker Barrel.

We headed over to Orlando for the weekend and spent a day at Disney World and then Sea World. We had so much fun making memories and I can't wait to see them again.

Another "Blue-Eyed Angel"

Hugh Laurie was born in Oxford, England, and educated at Eton and Cambridge University, where he took a degree in Anthropology. He rowed in the University Boat Race of 1980 and was also elected president of the venerable Footlights Revue. Along with Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson, Laurie produced "The Cellar Tapes," which won the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival of 1981 and propelled the three into a number of groundbreaking British television shows, including four seasons of "A Bit of Fry and Laurie," which Laurie co-wrote for the BBC with Stephen Fry; three seasons of "Blackadder," written by Richard Curtis and Ben Elton; and three seasons of "Saturday Live." In addition, four seasons of "Jeeves and Wooster," based on the novels of P.G. Wodehouse, aired on PBS's "Masterpiece Theatre" from 1990-1995.

Laurie's performance as "Dr. Gregory House" has garnered him two Golden Globe Awards for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. He has twice been honored by the Television Critics Association with TCA Awards for Individual Achievement in Drama.

This my boyfriend, Dr. House. Darin lets me have some boyfriends, and he says this one is acceptable. But Seriously..............Can I say that I LOVE HIM ?????
