Our Family Circle: Sam & Kathie’s Silver Anniversary, August 15, 2018

To all family and friends:

How is everyone enjoying their summer vacation?

The move to Linden, New Jersey on July 18th went smoothly.  I am gradually becoming acquainted with my new town and loving it.  I still have much unpacking to do but will get back to it after the hot days of summer are over.

I should be back to visiting my WordPRess friend’s blogs by early September.  There will be some gaps because of the time lost due to the move but I will resume commenting and interacting once I get the drift of everyone’s postings.

On Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 Uncle Sammy and Aunt Kathie celebrated their Silver Anniversary.  They first had a vacation in Paris before the Anniversary and then returned to the U.S. and celebrated again on the actual date with friends in Arizona.  This weekend they will complete their vacation and celebration with a visit to New Mexico where there is an Indian Market.

Uncle Sammy and I shared photos from the wedding in August 15, 1993.  For those members of the family who attended the photos should bring back some memories.  For those who see them for the first time we think you’ll see how much in love Uncle Sammy and Aunt Kathie are at the wedding and, I’m so grateful and happy to say, continue to be today.

Jake Lingle, son of Michael and Katy Lingle, celebrated his 1st birthday yesterday (February 1st, 2018).

Our favorite little boy has a big weekend ahead and it’s all about him.  Today was a birthday party with his parents and his Nanny.  Aunt Kathie will arrive early this evening.

Saturday Jake will enjoy another party with his maternal Grandparents and Kathie, his paternal Grandmother.

Michael sent this photo today.  It looks like Jake is enjoying the cake as well as all the attention!

Many Happy Returns, Jake Lingle!

Uncle Sammy and Aunt Kathie are headed for Baltimore, Maryland today.  They will spend Christmas with the Knipp and Lingle families.

Aunt Kathie anticipates more hugs and cuddles with her grandson Jake.  Jake was born in February 2017 to her son Michael and daughter-in-law Katy.

Michael sent the latest photo of Jake.  I think I see a little of Aunt Kathie in that bright smile!

Merry Christmas to the Knipp and Lingle families!

Interlude: Jake’s First Halloween

Katy and Michael Lingle enjoyed dressing their son Jake as an astronaut for his first Halloween.  Michael is my Aunt Kathie’s son.  He and Katy Knipp were married in June 2016.  In a few days, Jake will be 9 months old.  The time is going quickly!

Aunt Kathie, Uncle Sammy and I look forward to more photos and family stories about Jake as Holiday Season 2017 progresses.  Baby’s first Thanksgiving and Christmas are always special.  Then each year the milestones Jake achieves will be gifts to us as well.

Michael and Katy’s Wedding, Baltimore, MD, June 11, 2016

Michael and Katy were married on Saturday, June 11, 2016 in a beautiful, unique ceremony that gave expression to their love of each other and the happiness they wanted to share with all.  The wedding was a three day affair.  On Friday, June 10th there was a cocktail hour at the Rusty Scupper right across the Inner Harbor by water taxi.  This event gave us a chance to mix and mingle before the big day.  I loved the informality and friendly atmosphere.  A real feeling of connection was created that evening.

The ceremony and reception were held in a spacious ballroom at The Four Seasons Hotel.  The spectacular view of Inner Harbor created a sense of vast openness in the ballroom.  Since the weather was humid the ceremony was not held outdoors.

On Sunday, June 12th we gathered together one last time for a breakfast banquet at the Four Seasons Hotel.  It was the perfect conclusion to a perfect wedding weekend.  Katy and Michael made the rounds as they did Saturday night taking time to converse with each guest as well as exchange hugs and wishes for good luck.

Here are some photos I took and others from the ##ReadyToLingle Wedding Photo Album at cluster.com  I’ve provided credits to photos taken by other guests.
