Bridal Shower

Katressa had a wonderful turnout for her bridal shower last Saturday. There were 23 women present, not counting children, 15 of them were from Katressa's work. Thoses ladies are a blast!! It's a wonder they can even get anything done, as much fun as they have when they are together. We played a few fun games. One which Amy Shearer kissed the groom-to-be on the cheek, we are still trying to figure that one out! Katressa loves Matthew Mcconaughey, so like any good mother, I tried to get him to attend the shower, he must have been booked up, so I did the next best thing. I brought a poster of Matthew home from work, and put John's head on Matthew's body, and then we pinned the boutineer on the groom, we really had fun with that one!! Katressa did receive many nice gifts. It was so nice for her to be able to be with family and friends. Katressa I hope that you had a nice time, just want you to know that I love you very much!!

Killinger Reunion 2008

Harold was very fortunate to be able to attend the Killinger Reunion 2008. It was held this past Saturday in the hills of Gap, Pa most of you people out their will NOT know where that is, but believe me it is a real town. Harold drove to Ohio, then rode out to Pa with two of his sisters. They had a very good time from what I heard. It was nice for them to be able to see their family that they haven't seen for many years. I wasn't able to attend this year with Katressa getting married in a few weeks, but I was glad that Harold was able to go..

Shower for Baby Killinger

What do you get when you have 20 women together, great food, games, laughter? FUN-FUN!
Well we had LOTS of that. Saturday Aug. 9th at the baby shower! Lauren's mother Kim done a great job planning a super fun shower. We played many games with the Olympic theme. I especially like racing with baby strollers around the kitchen, removing babydolls diaper, putting on new diaper, then hula hopping twice.. Believe it or Not, this old (grandma) lady didn't do, too bad (our team won)! Baby Killinger even had Great G-ma Thompson in attendence along with all of his future Aunt's- Katressa, Sara & Becka! We had a very nice time. I can't believe that it is getting close to time for our little bundle of joy. I can't wait to hold and kiss him!!

Prayer Request.

Last week I mentioned an urgent request. I didn't feel up to talk about, we were still getting used to the idea ourselves. A week ago on Thursday Harold was called to a meeting at work and was told that his job was being eliminated, due to company down-sizing. He had no idea and neither did his boss. The company had been bought-out at the end of last year, we were curious what sort of changes would be made, not expecting anything this drastic. Katressa is getting married in a matter of weeks, and our first grandbaby is due soon also. Please pray that God will send something soon. I keep singing that phrase "God is working out his purpose". We would appreciate our friends helping us touch heaven on this matter.

Life is full of unexpected things! It seems that the last couple of years we have had WAY to many.. I am not able to go into detail at this time, but if you have ANY spare time PLEASE pray for Harold & I. We have had a serious situation come up and if we have ANY friends out there in blog space please, please pray for us.
