Just Married....Again!

Our marriage is now recognized by the Roman Catholic Church. (Although we were legally wed on 6/26/04, the sect of the Catholic Church we were married under is not recognized by Rome. We want to be in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church, so we had to do it all over again.:) I've heard friends say "I'd marry my husband all over again." Well... I really did!:) Actually, we consider today as a continuation of our original ceremony... we even used the same unity candle that we and the kids lit 6/26/2004. It still burns brightly!

Holy Cow! I think we need a new roof!!!

Actually, this is a photo taken during the new roof installation. This hole was discovered under the old shingles. No WONDER we had a big leak! Hey Pammy, you can tell Uncle Donnie that the roof he installed for us 18 years ago finally had one too many hail storms hit it! :) It was a good old roof....

Wow! Actually, there were holes similar to this all over the roof under the shingles. I never realized that roof damage occured UNDER the shingles!

Well, at least we won't be rudely awakened in the middle of a rainstorm with water pouring into the bedroom, like we were last week. Now to go argue with the insurance company. They are only paying for 75% of the shingle job, and none of the wood repair. That leaves us with a bill of over 2K. Yuck!!!
