Happy Annniversary


My daughter, Jackie, and her husband, Brian, are celebrating their 5 th wedding anniversary today.



They were married in Barquisimeto, Lara, Venezuela. It is very hard for me to imagine that it has already been 5 years!

They lived in the states for a year or so before moving to Costa Rica for Brian to study Spanish. Their first daughter was born in Costa Rica.

The lovely Elena!

Then they moved here to Paraguay where the baby was born at home, delivered by her father.


Jackie and Abbie moments after the birth.


The proud papa! (Mid husband?)

They have accomplished much in their short marriage!

May God grant them many more years together in His service!

That is AMAZING! This shows how strong they are, doing this all on their own like that. I would have been scared to death and my hubby would need the hammock to catch him when he faints! :)
Happy Anniversary Jackie and Brian!!

My brother and Uncle are thinking about buying a place in Costa Rica. Do you think your daughter's husband would mind if we asked him some things about living down there?

So much has happened in those 5 years huh? Loved the photos and can now swipe them to have in my collection. Thanks for posting them. Just last night while sorting through some old photos, I found the ones of Jackie & Brian's small civil wedding here, with dad officiating and Big Ed and Mary were here as well. I have a photo of Agustin and I signing the certificate as witnesses!! Great memories! These photos here made me want to pull out her Wedding DVD and watch it!

Happy Anniversary to the beautiful couple, and as we say in the Orthodox Church: "Εις πολλά χρόνια, Ο Λόρδος" - "Unto many years, O Lord"
