These days away have been wonder-filled and focused on many of our relatives. A week ago we were in Sacramento with a majority of Judy's kin, celebrating a marriage that thrilled us all. Everyone was blessed by all that took place.
Then we've been connecting, just about one night at a time with my relatives up through the northwest...OR, WA, ID. Again, thanks-filled and blessed by the moments we are having, though short on time.
In this pic, with me is my great-niece, Amy, with her husband, Jore, with the family dog. On the left is their youngest son, Anchor...and on the right their middle son, Ture (all the men in this family have Norwegian names). We were missing their oldest son, Ture, and his bride of a year...but Ture and Ellie next to him? Well.......time will tell. I admire and respect these three sons, and the daughter-in-law of Amy and Jore...they truly are great great-great-nephews, and now one more great great-great-niece.
Pardon me for sounding like a bit of a grouch for a moment... :-( ...but, hey!, we would love to see all these relatives, and all the others we have been with and will be with, we'd love to see them in Colorado. It is their turn. :-)
