    Looking good there. Who would believe you would soon enough be grand parents?

    In Sept. 2006, I was finalizing details for my daughter's wedding of 280 people. It was a huge task given that she lived 1500 miles away and only made it home for two brief visits before the wedding. Thank God for phone and email.

    What doesn't kill us makes us stronger :)

    The best think I recall from September 2006 was having breakfast with my best friends since 9th grade and her husband, their daughter and their first grandchild. I hadn't seen any of them in over 10 years at that time. What a wonderful memory -- thanks for reminding me! Oh -- and I love the picture above!

    In September of 2006, I was living even further into the mountains (9,600 ft. elevation) and all I really remember is two foot snows and battle time trying to get out and to the post office, grocery store, doctor, etc.

    You all look cute in your September 2006 photos.

    September 2006 seems like so long ago, doesn't it? We bought our current house in September that year and we were talking just last night about how it seems much longer than that. Maybe that's because we've had so many problems with the cuss house!!

    I was looking forward to my son starting high school. Another new chapter. Life flies by fast, eh? Now he's a junior in college...

    Lovely photo.
