  1. It’s lovely to hear from you Kristen.We would love to have the VD’s join us.  We have fragrant memories of our time with you last year.  We have a houseful, though…Collin slept on the kitchen floor last night! 

  2. Oh, how I have waited for pictures ….. I knew you were having a wonderful time.  Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚
    BTW I worry about the various cooking times for potatoes vs asparagus.  Your collage surely made for a colorful dinner plate.   I was boringly plain green with 2 C steamed broccoli on my plate tonight.
    How did roasted medley turn out?
    And did Dan sing?

  3. Dana, we are STILL having a great time.  Dan has a cold and has only sung a tiny bit in the garage.  On the agenda for tomorrow: wine tasting!I adore steelhead, but the roasted veggies were the pièce de résistance.  Oh. My. Goodness.  They were delicious to the 13th degree!  I cooked them 45 minutes in the oven on 400 degrees, uncovered, stirring every 15 minutes.  They were scrumptious.  I’d never had that combination before.  I suggested adding cauliflower and green pepper but was (thankfully) over-ruled. I will be making this many, many more times.

  4. Feasting — family, caring, sharing — His banner over us is Love!… and yes, love those roasted veggies (hmmm, I wonder what’s for dinner here — my husband cooks ). Blessings, Laurie

  5. Who is the older lady in the “feasting on generations” photo? and the young man holding up the little girl? I so wish I could be there, even just as a fly on the wall, to observe! I am so happy for you to have such a joyous family time! Love you!!!

  6. KGB, I’ll make sure that you get a disc of photos.  This evening Yia Yia fed us. Oh, the glories of Greek food!  And in our small town!  Praying for Grandpa…Mel, the older lady is our friend Rachel, who came with Dan and Val on this visit.  The young man is a dear friend of ours whom we’ve known for decades; we prayed for a wife for him for several years and now he is married and has four daughters. 

  7. Lovely! I love your “chapel” room too…one of these days we will have our own building.
    God is SO GOOD to give us so much blessing and feasting on this earth!  Everything looked delightful! Joy to you!

  8. Loved those pictures, Carol!!  Thanks for sharing.  Your food pictures made my mouth water…Could that young man with 4 daughters be someone I might know?  He looks like it in that picture.  If so, I didn’t realize that you had known him too.  God definitely answered your prayers for him with a lovely wife!

  9. Oh my yes! We dearly love that father of four daughters.  We have been eating bread together (companions) since the 1980s.  We are also good friends with his twin brother and his family.  And God did give him such a lovely wife.  I balled (as in snuffling, puffy eyes but happy crying) my way through his wedding.  He was the first one to point blank ask us to pray for a wife for him.  So we did.  And when the kindness of God was made so evident…it completely undid me.  Thus began my career as a fervent requester of a spouse, particularly for “older” singles.  I anticipate (with faith) snuffling my way through many weddings!
