Life in My World—They’re Baaaaaack

Ray and Cali came today. That means . . .

The lone beta fish (left here from their reception) now has someone who will put his care as a priority. Fish in bowls nigh near draw me insane. Round and round with no place to go. It’s quite counterproductive. I feel so sorry for him. We haven’t had any fish food, either. Calvin and I drop a few toast crumbs in his cup and every now and then a bit of bacon or hamburger (Ande told me they’re a meat eater). Can you see this poor thing needs someone?

I get to post some pictures! Alyson Keeley, a good friend, was their photographer. I highly recommend her. She is talented and artistic. I love the way she captured their wedding. She caught the day

From beginning to end. Thank you, Alyson. We appreciate you saving this memory so beautifully for us.

Beautiful.

All of it.

I've never much noticed the Columbia River Temple; it's beautiful. I love the flowers, the hairpiece, the shoes, the happiness. Wedding pictures are the best!

I LOVED the pictures of Cali's Wedding, and have been meaning to send her a gift, where should I send it to? and is it ok if I continue to check your blog, I love it? anyway, please send the info to norikraft@yahoo.com.

WOW Jane!!! What a beautiful family :)

I'm SO glad you learned how to post large photos because these would have not been ok to view tiny.

I LOVE every last one. What priceless memories. You all looked great, and Cali absolutely stunning.

Hannah said...

Fantastic shots! I love the shoe/dress one.

Julie said...

I have to say I loved the shoes too. I'm a shoe person. Cali looked so beautiful and you have beautiful children. I especially loved the one of Ande, Abe, and Cali. I miss the one that's missing! Everything looks perfect. I agree, the photographer was fabulous, but she had great subjects!

What a beautiful bride! Such great pictures to capture the day.

Becky said...

What lovely photos...I love wedding photos anyway but these are beautiful! Cali's shoes and flowers are the best (next to the look in Ray's eyes when he's with her...). Love the large size on the photos too. :)

Becky said...

P.S. Was she freezing? It looks so cold!

Greg and Gwen said...

I'm SO glad you posted pictures from the wedding. What a BEAUTIFUL bride!!!! They look like such a happy couple and I hope to meet Ray someday.

Abe left a comment on my blog asking me about Greg's mission. I'm not sure how to comment back since he doesn't have any posts to respond to. Can you tell him hi for me and that Greg served in the Baguio mission...and that we use the curry spice blocks found at Wal-mart...it's the best Greg has found to make Chicken Curry since being home. It's so fun to re-connect with all of you family this way! THANKS!!!
