Happy Anniversary Emily and Dan!

Today is our niece, Emily (the youngest of my brother’s three children), and her husband’s 1 year wedding anniversary.

Emily and Dan

May today be filled
with happy memories of the past
and bright hopes for the future
Happy Anniversary Emily and Dan!

For those of you with whom I am friends on Facebook, you may have seen the photograph that follows.

See that white stuff beyond Emily?

I just wanted to point out that there was snow on the ground last year, when Emily and Dan were married. There is no snow on the ground today.

A Shopping Trip and Family Visit

Raphael and I spent 2 nights (March 15-17) at the Marriott Springhill Suites hotel, on the grounds of Pittsburgh Mills in Tarentum, Pennsylvania. In addition to shopping, we visited with my niece, Emily, and her family. The shopping experience was not as good as I expected (Millcreek Mall in Erie, PA is better shopping in my personal opinion); however, spending time with family was priceless.

Elise was the first baby whom Raphael has held.

Emily Gets Married

Emily and Dan's Wedding Day

My niece, Emily, and Dan got married on October 29th. Emily is the youngest of my brother’s three children. I was the official photographer, and it was the fourth wedding that I photographed this year. I loved the colors, black and red, chosen for the wedding. The bride was beautiful, and the groom was handsome. It was a beautiful wedding all around. Congratulations Emily and Dan!

Emily and Dan

My niece, Emily, and her boyfriend, Dan, requested a photo session while Bob and I were visiting my brother and his family at their camp this past weekend. I was more than happy to oblige.

Emily is 13 weeks pregnant.
Will I have a new great nephew or great niece?
That is the question.

Christmas 2010

Bob and I had a quiet, restful Christmas Eve, just the two of us. We ate an early dinner at Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut was a good choice, as it was offering its all-you-can eat buffet all day Christmas Eve. We didn’t know this was the case when we decided to eat there. In the evening we watched a couple movies, and around 11:00 PM we opened our Christmas gifts. This was the first year that we opened our Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve. We were able to see what we got each other for Christmas and dream about our gifts all night long 🙂 Bob is happy with the Keurig Coffee Maker, a tool set, and a Steelers shirt and sleep pants that I gave him for Christmas. I’m happy with the gifts that Bob gave me too — a Kindle! and a gift card to purchase e-books!

Bob and I celebrated Christmas with my brother and his family at their home on Christmas Day. We celebrated Christmas with my stepdaughter, Stacey, and her fiance Mike at our house the day after Christmas. Our Christmas weekend was wonderful, and I hope the same of yours.
