Family time in Wisconsin

This is the old farmhouse which is being lovingly remodeled and lived in by my niece and her family which includes four children, ages 7 months to 10 years. It was built by her husband's great uncle.

Thanksgiving night, the engaged couple opened a few gifts. Here the bride-to-be examines the label on the quilt we made for them. Below, Mr. Pear and our son and daughter-in-law outdoors on a beautiful sunny (and not too cold!) day before the wedding.

The wedding was on Saturday afternoon in a small but beautiful church, St. John's Lutheran in Hayes, Wisconsin. Here is an image from the Internet of the church being constructed in 1904. It has a VERY tall steeple and is a yellow brick church with stained glass windows. The last photo in this post is me holding my 7-month old great nephew while waiting for the ceremony to begin.
I hope to post some more photos from the wedding soon! [Our camera is still not 100% so others in the family will have to share!]


Quick now, here, now, always -

A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything)

And all shall be well and

All manner of thing shall be well

When the tongues of flame are in-folded

Into the crowned knot of fire

And the fire and the rose are one. ----T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding

Lovely house - we had one exactly like that in N. CA - only it was one story and not two. It was built in 1888. Love those old houses!
