Jesse and Lois are married!!!

On April 26, Jesse and Lois were married for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was a beautiful ceremony and a very happy event!!! Our family was privileged to meet Lois' parents and grandparents and other relatives. This was the first time her parents had been to the U.S. and Lois hadn't seen them in nearly four years, so it was a happy reunion! It was wonderful to have all of our sweet children and grandchildren together with us! Jesse and Lois are a BEAUTIFUL couple and so in love:) CONGRATULATIONS! It's very gratifying, as parents, to have all of our children married to such kind, intelligent, outstanding people:) We feel so blessed!!!
By the way, Lois' aunt was very generous in putting on a luncheon reception down in L.A. for the newlyweds. Due to time limitations there was no reception in Orcutt. They honeymooned(a short stint) in Santa Barbara and then returned to HAWAII( The honeymoon capital!) on Monday!

I am going to add pictures in a few days when the photographer has them ready for us...we had a "sneak peek" and they are FABULOUS! I am not computer savvy enough, and too tired, to attempt to retrieve them right now from her blog:)

Fabulous at 50!!!

Woo hoo...Jim is 50!!! To celebrate, eight of us went out for Japanese food, and Jim ate sushi to his heart's content:) We even had our own little private room and sat on the floor(sort of) Japanese style. It was a lot of fun!!! At the end of the meal, Jim was brought a cute little dessert "on the house"and of course I passed out cookie favors to our guests in honor of his birthday:) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JIM!

I know this is late(his bday was April 19th), but I'm trying to do some catching up!
