This week is going to be a photo week! I am going to post David and Margy’s wedding photos, hopefully soon.
Here are photos from before the wedding ceremony and the pictures of a “We Love Our Country” Rosary Rally we held in Topeka, KS.
After the gallery there is a few videos so come on back to the post!

Thursday evening found the girls gathered in my room ironing the wedding dress.
It was quite wrinkled and we tried steaming it with the hot shower in the bathroom. Didn’t work.
So…Maria, the seamstress, comes to the rescue and dares to put an iron to it!
It worked wonderfully!
Theresa is enjoying the comaraderie.
Margy and Jeanette look on… (and offer advice)
Doing Margy’s toenails.
Prayer the morning of the wedding…that all will go well, Rosie will handle the day and for blessings on David and Margy.

Theresa gathers flowers from the gardens to decorate the cake.
A little solitaire to calm the nerves?

Agnes’ First Communion was the day after the wedding.
She is also our God daughter.
“I have tried to show you , that you cannot become good and strong men and women, that is, men and women of character, unless you have Will-power, and further that you will be of little or no use to your country if you are weak-willed. It has been well said that ‘the only way to be a patriotic American is to do your best to become a perfect man.’ and a perfect man you will not be unless your Will is strong.”
All the pictures are beautiful and special in their own way 🙂
Wonderful photos!!! Thank you so much for sharing! 😍👍❤️

Anne Marie is so cute in that 4th of July outfit! How many of your daughters and daughters in law are still expecting?
They’ve all had their babies! The last one was in June.

Absolutely fantastic, thanks for sharing. And once again, Gin looked FABULOUS! Love her style.
Julia Mary said:
Lovely! But now I’m dying to ask, did David and Margy purposefully choose not to do the usual “don’t see the bride till the ceremony”?
What about your other children?
Julia Mary said:
Either way, I think it’s probably a sign of their loving relationship! Many brides might be nervous having their groom around when getting their hair done. Then again, your family has had so many weddings 🥰😆
Yes, it was on purpose. It was a late wedding… Didn’t start until 2:00 PM. I’m sure they wanted to spend their special day together as much as possible. He didn’t see her in her wedding dress, of course. 😊😊
The other kids did the same.
Julia Mary said:
That makes sense, especially as you said, with an afternoon wedding!
God bless your family! Enjoying your YouTube video updates!
Yay! I love the photo galleries you post. 😊 You can feel the joy of the occasion as everyone gets ready for the wedding.
God bless your beautiful family. I would love to live near such a community. ❤️
God Bless You ,your family and all your friends and their families.
Thank You for sharing the family photos. Everything is so lovely.

I just LOVE the song the sisters sang for the bride and groom! What is that song, and what are the words,and who wrote it? Wonderful pictures, wonderful EVERYTHING!! God bless you each! God bless America too!
Hi Doris, the song is called “A Better Place“. I don’t know who wrote it or who sings it. My girls would. 🙂 God bless you also!
Thank you so much, I’ll look that up.
Looks like a wonderful weekend! Congratulations on everything. 🙂
What a lovely post. The pictures are beautiful. God Bless your family. Love the roadside photos especially. God Bless America.
