Scenes from a family gathering

Our oldest daughter,
Giselle, and her husband Jon...married less than 2 years, have moved to Montana for teaching jobs.
(Teaching jobs in Christian schools are not so much available here in West Michigan.)
Shortly before leaving in July, they announced their pregnancy.
Thankfully, we all have the wonderful Verizon family plan, and can talk anytime w/o charges.
They flew in for the Christmas break, and with a LONG layover in Minnesota (24 hours...due to severe weather), they finally arrived!

Baby is due on Feb. 26...also Farmboy's birthday!

It is SO much fun to see her pregnant, happy, and still SO in love with Jon.
He has truly become her bestest friend.

This truly was a most difficult day, as they were flying out the very next morning.
We had a wonderful family dinner and shared many laughs.
We are praying for really cheap flights (for me, Memere) to Montana after baby arrives.
Can't hardly wait to see them again!

Pin It!

Congratulations Giselle! I am so happy for them! I am so sad that I couldn't visit when we were there. The weather just messed everything up.
