Ivan and Missi

Hey all

Hope all is well with all. Heather-sounds like all is going well with the home project. Anita and Jari-good luck with the sale-hope the market down there is better than it is up here. Am looking forward to visiting sometime in AK.

Missi just taught me how to get onto the new blog-(crazy that I couldn't figure it out.) Anyway, I haven't posted anything in a long time so figured I'd give it a whirl.

Just talked w/Becky last night about various wedding things and she wasn't aware that there will be a gift opening on Sunday after the wedding. Immediate family and the wedding party are invited to attend. We haven't decided on the location or exact time yet but will almost definitely be Sunday. Anyway, just wanted to give a heads-up to all.

Anyone that has good ideas about a scripture/other reading for the wedding please feel free to share. Missi and I have been struggling on that one. We've found one that we agree on-it's an Apache wedding prayer or something- we both like it but have to wait until we find out which pastor will be officiating at the wedding so we can talk with him/her about what kind of reading we have to have (if they require anything specific-or biblical). Anyway, if anyone has ideas of specific bible verses or other readings, please feel free to share for our consideration.

Jenny, Missi has sent you a picture of her dress via snail mail-(or will soon if not yet). I talked with Frans a little about dresses for the girls but just to make sure everything's clear I'll reiterate here. Missi and I are fine with you picking out dresses down there (I hear you have connections), all we ask is that they are white, similar style to Missi's, and most importantly, that the two girl's dresses match each other.

Kisses and hugs to all, see you soon
Ivan and Missi

thanks for the tip Liz- and no I don't think I can google as well as you or anyone- maybe Missi but not me.
Yes we did get the songs Becky, thank you. I don't remember which they were right now (I'm at the library-the only place we can get internet-don't have it at home) but we're leaning toward the middle length one. One's too long and don't really think cutting a verse or three would work, and the other one is too short(just one verse).
