I am so looking forward to getting there and being with family members whom we rarely get to see. The groom is my husband's sister's son, Karl, who is finishing up med school, and his lovely bride-to-be, Emily, finished up her PhD in Pharmaceutical studies last Spring. wow! I hear it was a challenge to find a wedding date, with their hectic schedules. But they did and off we go!!:)
The wedding and reception is being held at a beautiful downtown hotel, --so nice for out-of-towners who don't know the city. And with the shivering winter going on outside, we will be snug and warm and having a wonderful time inside!
I have relatives who also live in Indiana, whom I rarely get to see. AND we are going to meet for the first time this happy little guy- Corbin! He belongs to my niece, Kristy and her husband, Dean.
What a cutey!
Here is my brother, Steve and SIL Opal ( also known as Papaw and Mamaw:) Corbin is their fourth grandchild. Their son, Dennis and his wife Shelby are expecting #5! They've got this grandparent thing down:)
And, yeah, I know!-- they look way young to be grandparents!!:) Happy 35th Anniversary last December:) Did I mention they are also crazy fun to be around?!
Kristy and Dean, live in Indy and guess what?-- Kristy just got her nursing degree last semester. Hey, so if anybody's feeling bad, we've got it covered for this trip!:)
Uh-hum...I think their favorite team is GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!:)
Here's something else I've been wondering about. Karl (Lon's nephew) and Kristy (my niece) have been in med school and nursing school respectively, and worked at the same hospital in Indy. I didn't know this until this week. Wouldn't it be wild if they have seen each other, or have worked together , or just know each other's faces---but have never known that they both have an Aunt Linda and Uncle Lon and have our kids as their first cousins?!! We'll find out on Saturday-- stay tuned!
And you are not going to believe it, but guess who else we get to see this weekend??!
Okay, here's a little hint...look at those sweet braids:)
Here is Sophie trying to send Grammy an email, telling me that she is coming to see me...
"Where is that "send" button on this thing?"
Yup! Ben, Lisa and Sophie are traveling from Pittsburgh to Indy for the wedding! I can hardly stand it!!:) Am I using too many smiley faces? Ok, I'll try to stop...
If you have a spare minute, would you please pray for safety for all the ones traveling from different parts of the country for Karl and Emily's wedding? Winter stuff is going on all around. Thanks so much.
