Wedding Bells in Avon, Colorado

On August 8, 2008, my nephew, Tyson Richard Curtis Reed married the lovely Maria Theresa Borg in Avon, Colorado. Tyson is my sister's (Debbie's) youngest child.

My baby sister, Dawn Lorraine, rosemaled this beautiful wedding plate for Maria and Tyson. Tyson has Norweign roots on both sides of his family!!

Debbie's Family: Tyson Richard Curtis Reed, Maria Theresa Borg Reed, Rex Randall Reed (Debbie's Hubby), Deborah Lynn Byberg-Reed, Jill Rae Tighe Reed (Saul's wife) and Salyer (Saul) Byberg Reed.

The Cuz Connection: Salyer Byberg Reed, Tyson Richard Curtis Reed, Andrew Warren Straley, Richard Edward Straley.

Any time the Byberg Sisters can get together, it's a great time.

Deborah Lynn Byberg-Reed (Mary Poppins), Deanna Louise Byberg-Straley (Nanny Goat) and Dawn Lorraine Byberg VanDonkelaar (Squirt).

Debbie had to return to Carson City, Nevada the next day but we managed to squeeze in a reunion with our dear Aunt Donna before Debbie had to catch her plane. Debbie had not seen Aunt Donna or our one and only first cousin Bobby in 15 years. He's super tall and we're super short. Can you tell??? What a blast!!

Aunt Donna Jean Grundeman (formerly Byberg) Becker, Deanna Lousie, Deborah Lynn, Dawn Lorraine and Robert Roland Byberg (Bobby Bear).

Parker, Colorado Tornado

Last Sunday afternoon around 6:00 PM, the clouds over our home in Parker, Colorado became eerily dark and ominous. Although I did not take this particular photograph, this is the tornado we watched as it worked its way across the ground just a mile or two from our home. My chidren and I watched it form and dissipate approximately 15 minutes later from our deck in the backyard. A total of four tornadoes touched down in the area and miraculously, no one was hurt.

Blessings, Deanna
