Grandpa Circeo (Ken’s dad) and Grandpa DeRusha (Tammy’s dad and my brother)in serious conversation. There were three preachers in the house at one time.  If you think they didn’t have a good time, you would be wrong. Bob Circeo and Jon DeRusha in deep conversation.This weekend was the first time that Don met Bob Circeo and they thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each other.

This afternoon, Tammy had a family dinner planned. Kyle, the groom-to-be, and Emily, arrive for the dinner and are greeting by grandparents, and all the relatives who had not yet met Kyle. I think he truly felt accepted.100_4138

The bride-to-be and her grandpas. (Hold cursor over each picture for description.)Emily wasn't there to have her picture taken, but the two proud grandpas were. Deep in discussion. Now, she's ready for a picture.

Emily wasn’t the only family member with something special going on.  Tonight is homecoming for her little sister, Aly.  She looked stunning in her dress. 100_4158 100_4163
