H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

FAMILY MATTERS


It was another whirlwind week, of sorts, with the low point being two days of work lost (Thursday and Friday) to a persistent migraine.

The week ended on a high note, though, with a wedding rehearsal Friday evening, followed by an excellent rehearsal dinner at "Ralphs at the Park" on Canal Blvd., across from the City Park main entrance. Saturday evening I "officiated" at the wedding (9 groomsmen and 9 bridesmaids!) of Brad and Jenn (no jokes, please. When I first met the couple, I told them that the whole "Brad/Jenn" thing had already been done, but they wanted to go ahead anyway). After the wedding we were treated along with the other guests to a HUGE reception at English Turn Country Club.


FYI, at a Catholic wedding, the bride and groom give to each other the sacrament of matrimony, while the priest or deacon is the official witness of the Church to the sacrament.

Also FYI, in the Catholic Church there are seven sacraments (outward signs, instituted by Christ, to give grace). These are baptism, reconciliation (confession), communion, confirmation, matrimony, holy orders (priests and deacons), and anointing of the sick (formerly called "extreme unction").

H1 sent along several pics from last weekends get together. I'd like to share a couple with you. The crawfish boil was held at MD/DLG's home.


Yours truly makin' pizza Friday night!









As you can see, we were a bunch of happy folks all weekend. We're looking forward to another family get together, sooner rather than later!!
