Congratulations you two!

The Wedding Rehearsal

Well the wedding rehearsal went off without a hitch tonight. We went through the program twice just to make sure. Afterwards we had dinner at mom and dad's house, and got out all of the pre-wedding jitters. We can't wait for you two to become one tomorrow. God Bless!

Wedding Notes

Email from Nancy with important Wedding Notes:

Dear Family,
Just a note about parking at the wedding. You can park on the street or in the Christ Church parking lot on 13th Av. and 31st St. (Our church, Salem EFC, is on 14th Av. and 31st St.) Park close to 31st St. and don’t leave any valuables visible in your car. Don’t put anything in your trunk after arriving in the parking lot. We have the church’s permission to park there, but they asked us to take these precautions.

On another subject, YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME TO OUR HOME, 3133 Elliot Av. S. at noon on Sunday for brunch. Some of my family from Illinois will be there, too. I’m having it early so that those who are leaving Sunday hopefully will be able to come.

You’re also welcome to come to our church service Sunday morning, 10:30 - 11:30. (Informal coffee time before hand, featuring cookie making or just sitting & visiting. This part starts at 9:00, but you can come anytime.) I’m looking forward to seeing you all soon!! Love, Nancy

Teresa, your purple flower came up first and I thought, wow, what a beautiful orchid in the snow! It is beautiful.
Liv, we listened to your whole concert on the radio. It was really fantastic! A great Christmas Experience! Thanks. I can't wait to see y'all.

Me again

On previous winter visits to Washington, DC, I admired the ornamental cabbages planted in public gardens. This fall, I planted a couple in the back yard. Contrast the cabbage garden outside of the Capitol Hill Hyatt last week with my poor cabbage photographed today. We believe it to be a victim of rabbits rather than the Minnesota weather, however.
