Former and Legendary Green Bay Packers Head Football Coach Vince Lombardi once famously asked a very simple question... And now, I am wondering too:
And then, finally, last year, Donna's oldest daughter, Lauren, announced she was expecting and would be due in December. Number 3 was on the way and on December 16th, Malachi (The Little Dude) was born. And then, something funny started happening, which comes back to Coach Lombardi's question... Justin and Courtney called just after Little Dude was born and announced that Little Man was going to have a 'Little Bro' in July. Booooooya, #4 was on the way and Nana-Papa had Big Smiles on our faces. Then, Donna's Son, Steven, announced that he was getting married to Kristen in March (3-16). They would follow that announcement up with another: Kristen is pregnant and is due in November. Ha!!! Now, all of a sudden, #5 is on the way!!! Hit the Play Button on Coach Lombardi. The Wedding (See Below) was this past Sunday. Kristen had a Doctor appointment on Tuesday. The Doctor said "Hmmmmmm, I need you to come back in the morning for an ultra-sound." On Wednesday morning (2 days ago), she did go back and then... Steven & Kristen announced that she is now expecting, yep, TWINS (imagine bright neon blinking lights)!!! And just like that, #'s 4, 5, & 6 are in the 'oven' and on the way. Go ahead... Hit that Play Button on Coach Lombardi one more time. And you wonder why "My Little Bride is Smiling?" Just when I thought the 'focus' would finally come back to me a bit, you know, after the Wedding, 3 more Grand-Babies are 'on the way.'
Kristen asked me if I would be the Wedding Photographer. Say what???
While honored that they would ask, I am not a Professional Photographer. I felt a lot of pressure, knowing that this was a big deal for them and you only have 'one shot'

My Parting Music: I love this tune and have wanted to list it in this space for a while. Nothing is Easy. Relationships, especially, are Hard Work. But the payoff is amazing!!! Coldplay with The Scientist. Please watch, listen, and enjoy...
