wedding too?

Yes, our weekend did not stop at Thanksgiving, shoot, that would have been too easy. Our family, we like to do things big, as in, ‘git ‘er done’ kind of way. As in….fast and furious with a whole bunch of work and fun all together and BOOM call it a day.

So, this would be my niece Charsie and her love Jesse. I trust Chars with her decisions, she goes before the Lord with what He wants for her life, but of course, I always want to observe and make my OWN observation, as if it would matter anyway, I love Chars………and Jesse? He just seems to fit her so well. I remember, last thanksgiving, him over at mom and dad’s house and asking Chars who is this guy and her response, ‘just a friend’, well……it was a friend she couldn’t keep her hands or eyes off of. Then this summer helping move my parents Jesse was extremely giving and willing to help my parents and it just made a huge statement. Nobody asked, he just saw a need and offered himself up. At that time, I, with all of my wisdom, knew he was a keeper. Oh, and the way he and her acted LAST Thanksgiving? Same story a year later, it’s like Chars’s brain was only flooded with Jesse AT ALL TIMES! We all have learned to love him too.

Um….hello? Does he have great taste too? Charsie’s wedding gift from Jesse. She wore them under her dress. L.O.V.E!

Ok, so now that I’m happy, sobbing, let’s move on. Let’s just say this was a celebration. One that will go down in history as one of the happiest days of not only Charsie and Jesse’s life but the family as well.

Gratitude is all I have to give at this moment.

Jan Hornshuh Kent - Deer-hunting, horse-riding, sharp-shooting Franke-Hornshuh memories go back nearly 60 years … seems like just yesterday.

Thank you for keeping the fun times alive by sharing Franke family photos and stories.

Oh, I know, last names change, stories change, characters come and go… Time does that… But time and distance will never change the affection the Hornshuhs maintain for the Frankes.

Brandee Shafer - I just love you guys. That baby in the tutu is YUMMY, and I had to smile at the bride’s neon, green sock. May God continue to bless this union and your family!
