More Joyful Times ~ Adding Another New Daughter-in-Law's Name to My Genealogy Database

It has been such a wonderful and eventful year for our family. We added a beautiful daughter-in-law to our family in June when our third-oldest son married his sweet bride in Provo, Utah.

Earlier this month we added another beautiful daughter-in-law to our family. Our youngest son and his lovely bride were married on September 3rd in Fresno, California.

Our son and his sweet fiance (now wife) were married in the Fresno California Temple. They were sealed for time and all eternity. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that marriages performed in the holy temple can last throughout the eternities and not end at death.

Their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous.

Gwen Hawkins, owner of Gwen Hawkins Photography, did an amazing job. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos from our son and daughter-in-law's special day.

I have now added our sweet new daughter-in-law's name to my Legacy Family Tree database. Such happy times for our family!

Thanks for stopping by!

A House for Sale and a Wedding

It's been pretty quiet here on my blog lately. And, it's likely to remain quiet for the next few weeks. Why? Because we have big exciting things happening around here right now. One of those big things is that we bought a new house. It should be completed in late January 2017. Last week we put our current house on the market. For those who've been through this process before, you know how stressful, exciting, and super busy it all is.

In addition to selling our house, we have another exciting event happening. Early next month our youngest son and his beautiful fiance are getting married. We are so happy for them! Such a wonderful and joyous occasion!

This year has been filled with so many wonderful and exciting events. My regular readers may remember that I shared the happy news about our third-oldest son's wedding in June. We are truly blessed!

So, please excuse my absence from regular blogging for a while longer. I hope you all are enjoying your summer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fab Finds on Hiatus

Just a quick post to let you know that my weekly Fab Finds posts will be on hiatus for several weeks. They should begin again on September 9, 2016. We have a lot going on around here right now (all good stuff). One of the exciting events coming up is our youngest son's wedding in early September.

Thank you for your patience and have a wonderful rest of the summer!

Wordless Wednesday (Almost) ~ Carl and Hilda Gillberg - My Swedish Immigrant Great-Grandparents

I'd like to share this special photo with you today. It's a photo of my paternal great-grandparents, Hilda Maria Carlsson and Carl Albert Gillberg. It was included in my Grandma Ingrid's blue Book of Remembrance. Underneath this photo my Grandma Ingrid wrote the following:
"My parents of to-day. I pray that our Father in Heaven will let you stay with us for many more years. If it be his will."
I don't know when Ingrid wrote these beautiful words in her Book of Remembrance, but it had to be sometime before 15 January 1956. That's the date that Hilda passed away. Carl passed away on 3 May 1963.

I'm grateful to have my Grandma Ingrid's two Books of Remembrance and the photos and documents they contain.

Thanks for stopping by!
