Snowy St. Paddy's Day

 We had such a beautiful Saturday - nearly 60 degrees!  We had the doors open and it was great to air out the house after a long winter season.  We'd heard the forecast and knew that snow was coming, and it really did come.  Still snowing but it's like and I don't think we'll get very much, though the ground is completely covered again!

Dotsie showed us a fun app a week or so ago and I downloaded it.  Waterlogue.  I have had fun playing with some photos from the wedding.  This is my favorite so far.

 While the weather was nice and I had the kitchen door open on Saturday (Tim was working on the van right outside the door, photo below), I made some cookies for Sunday.  They are Oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate chip.  Very tasty!

Tim has had several things to change on the van recently.  Two weeks ago he changed the motor mount and a wheel bearing.  Saturday he replaced the dead battery and the starter.  He had a helper.  I am thankful for his knowledge of cars and his ability to make these kinds of repairs.

I wanted to show you a few more photos from the wedding.

 Happy sister of the bride!

 The food was awesome at the reception.

Handsome groomsmen - the first two are brothers of the groom.

I loved this shot, from the balcony, of the reception space.  It was really nice and gave us room in the middle for the dancing.

I hope you have a wonderful day!  

Oh, just one more thing.  If you have an hour or so, will you take the time to watch this incredible and challenging biography.  

The Time to Live is Now.


  1. Wonderful photos! I see that Kyle is a happy helper! Yes, it is good when husbands "know" things. The wedding photos are splendid. It looks as if it was a perfect day. (I don't know if I could bear to watch the video just now. It looks intense and there's been enough of that lately. Want to do a review? ; D )

  2. I agree with you on the aerial view--really cool and there are all your friends and family in one place celebrating! The flowers look good in water color. I think I like the app better for scenery than people but it depends on the photo. Glad you are enjoying it. Hopefully your husband is passing his knowledge down to his young helper!

  3. And thanks for the link. It goes along with Tim Keller's new book I'm reading on Walking With God Through Pain and Suffering.

  4. Loving all the wedding photos. The image of the sister of the bride running with arms wide is gorgeous. The aerial view is a great way to capture lots of the action. The waterlogue app did a great job with your flower photo.

  5. This weather has my head spinning...such changes from day to day...but I know that spring is on the way!

    Loved seeing the most recent wedding photos! I agree with Lorrie...the picture of Sarah is priceless. Such an enthusiastic spirit she has!

    I'll try to remember to come back and watch the video. It looks like one that feeds the soul.

  6. Oh what fun, not the snow but the Wedding:) I really enjoy Weddings and always have a tear or two! Enjoy your day dear friend, hope the weather clears up! HUGS!

  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
