A blessing in Omaha

Grandma(me) snuggling with Megan and Jake

Our newest grandchild, Jake, was blessed in Omaha , and Jim and I were able to be there:) My in-laws(Ann and Dick) also came. They DROVE all the way from California! We FLEW:)
It was so great to spend time with Summer, Brian, Karaline, Megan and Jake! We miss them very much! The kids grow and change so fast! Hopefully one day they can live closer(a lot!) to us:) Our visit there was way too short!

Jake sure is a handsome little fella! Look at those kissable cheeks! Jim met Jake for the first time and I hadn't seen him since he was two weeks old! He's a happy little guy and smiles readily:) His sisters love him and Megan especially loves to pat him on the back and give him kisses:) So cute!

Grandma and Karaline overlooking the Missouri River(behind the trees).
I love Karaline's big, cheesy (but cute!) grin:) She's so much fun!

I sure miss them!

Jesse and Lois' Wedding Day

Though Jesse and Lois were married on April 26, I am just finally posting my favorite images from that happy day! All photography is done by Tonya Joy Photography:) She(and her sister, Gena)did such a beautiful job!
These came up in the opposite order than I intended...My grandchildren came up first and then the wedding couple:)




Our Family

What a happy day!
