2nd Wedding Anniversary!!!!!!!

Hey guys! We're TWO!!!! Can you believe it! We are now in plural years! Fantastic!!!! The time has flown by so quickly. It's been a wonderful two years. And I'm still as enchanted with Sakiem as ever! He surprised me with a trip to VA Beach. We stayed in a lovely beach front resort. Our balcony overlooked the beach! I miss the beach so much! We spent a relaxing weekend strolling along the beach, eating great seafood - wonderful crab legs - and just being together. I surprised Sakiem with a home theater system. It's excellent! You should hear how the TV sounds now. And watching the basketball playoffs with surround sound is awesome! He surprised me with an iPod touch! I've been dying for one of those. He had already loaded it with my favorite music! I'm not sure how or when he did it but he got that past me. We have a lovely anniversary. And just like we did last year we watched our wedding video - talk included. It's the thing we're going to do every year on our anniversary... awww.. I know! Anyhoo.. just thought I'd make a quick update. I'm attaching a pic we took on the balcony of the room. There are more pics by Mr. C has not loaded them from his camera yet. When he does, we'll post those. Later!!

Special Assembly Day

This past weekend we attended the "Keep Watching the Ministry ..., That you Fulfill It" Special Assembly Day of Jehovah's Witnesses.  It was an excellent program, full of reminders and instructions; right on time as usual.  This year Sakiem was privileged to present a talk and interviews for the afternoon session.  He presented the part entitled, "Youths Who Fulfill the Ministry."  He gave an encouraging talk and then interviewed three exceptional young people - we've dubbed "the kids".  They were the most spiritual and well-mannered kids I've ever met.  Truly an encouragement.  They were all baptized (one of them got baptized that morning); and all would auxiliary pioneer from time to time.  They are even serving where the need is great for a week!  Great kids.  Sakiem did a wonderful job in the talk and he had such a pleasant ease with the kids.  I think one of them has adopted him a a "big brother" lol.  They email often.  He's a sweet kid.  We both thoroughly enjoyed the program.  After a wonderful day of spiritual instruction, we had a great evening of recreation with another young couple in our congregation.  They had a few people over for their home and we enjoyed good food, good drinks and great friends.  Excellent weekend.  Enjoy some pictures below.
