Ryan Nicholson Birthday
I have four sons; Tom, Ryan, Chris and Spence. Ryan's birthday is October 14. I told Ryan I wanted to do a video for his birthday. I asked him to send me some pictures. So he sent me pictures of Porsches. That's Ryan. So most of these pictures are a blend of my old pictures and pictures Ryan's bride, Crystal, sent me.
When Ryan was a little boy he talked about wanting to get married and have a family. Well, Ryan married Crystal on September 15, 2001. Now he has the family he always wanted; a beautiful wife and three children.
So Ryan, I hope you have a great birthday and I hope you like this video.
Lily Marlene Adams Birthday
My bride for almost 32 years, beautiful, kind and tender-hearted. God has used her many times to help me understand how God loves.
It is unbelievable to me that she doesn't understand why I love her. This video is just another attempt to make her understand how grateful I am that God allowed me to marry His daughter.
If every spouse would see the other first as God's child it might help us all to respect one another more.
Autumn Nicholson Birthday
Autumn Nicholson, our first grandchild, turned 12 on September 19. I try to maake her a video every year on her birthday.
Now that she has a new brother and sister we don't want her to think we don't love her just as much.
Isn't it great that one candle can light a million more and remain just as bright! There's enough love for all of us if we'll just release it. What we hold tightest to our chest owns us, not the other way around.
Chris Nicholson Birthday
Chris Nicholson's family is celebrating September 12, 2015, Chris's birthday. His bride, Melinda Nicholson, and his two daughters, Ellie and Bailee are excited for any excuse to show him some love. If they can't come up with an excuse like a birthday or father's day or Christmas then they just love on him anyway.
Actually, his parents and I'm pretty sure even his three brothers love him too.
Remembering our 25th Wedding Anniversary
Lily and I were married November 15th 1983. I always look forward to our anniversaries, but every five years our anniversaries just seem to be extra special. In 2013 we went to Ocean Shores and had a wonderful and memorable 30th anniversary.
In 2008 we spent a week with our friends Don and Linda in Garibaldi, Oregon. That was our 25th anniversary. Our 20th anniversary was with Dave and Robin, Arch and Colleen in Whistler, Canada.
These three videos were taped on a small 8mm cassette tape camcorder. Like most of our old tapes the camcorder was hand held, but for us it's the memory reminders that are important. It was a fun vacation on the Oregon coast. It was Don and Linda's anniversary too.
I just love this music
These two videos were made in 2008.
In my humble opinion this is Rod McKuen’s best work and the music is just gorgeous, but then I’ve always been a romantic. Anything beautiful makes me think of the Lord first ... and then Lily.
The music is from The Sea, by Rod McKuen and Anita Kerr. This album, yes album, not CD, first came out in 1967 when I graduated from High School.
We love the coast and every time someone comes to visit we always ... always go to the coast. I wonder what it would be like to live on the coast and if we did, would our family and friends come to visit more frequently?
We have many memories from trips to the coast with family and friends and we never get tired of returning to the same places.
and one more ...
Now even cell phones can do a much better job of video taping.
