Video of Shawndra as a Teenager

A BLOG commentor, from the previous post, asked for the "sharky" video. I've seen that video, once, with Shawndra, at her parents house, during our courting days, but not since. I need to hit up Gary & Carolyn for that video! In the absence of that video, let me present you with Shawndra, Dustin, and Andrea as the Three Amigos. Thanks goes out to Dustin's father, Dave, who provided the video clip from the old VHS days. Shawndra doesn't know I'm posting the video... hopefully she approves. Hehehehehe. Oh, and Dustin & Andrea... I know you two wouldn't approve, which is why I didn't ask... ehehehehehehe. Enjoy!

Also some photos from our ski trip last week are below. (Click on the photos, if you wish to see them in large format.) Goodnight. - Doug













Ella playing dress-up. What a princess!

Aspen Airport. During take-off, Ella shouted "we're going so fast!"

Look at my huge gloves!

Doug,

You are right. I wouldn't approve.
Thanks a lot Dad. Why couldn't you have posted the video of Shawndra doing her George Michael impression?!
Shawndra always was our vacation video celebrity!

Love you both,
Dustin

HAHAHAHAHA! I love it. As for the "non" approving 2, just remember, it is SURE to make Shawndra laugh and isn't that key here? Also, Andrea, nows your chance to locate some obscure footage of Doug that will give her an equally large grin.
The photos are great. Ella is getting so big. The first one favors Doug, but the second ear to ear grin is all Grandpa Gary, which Ms. B is a mini me of. They all made me laugh and were a bright start to this unexpectedly snowy day! Hope that Shawndra is feeling better and reciting those famous words "there's no place like home" soon.

Ooops, forgot to thank the mind behind the mastery...Thanks Dustins Dad :) And Doug for instigating it.

Guys, I'm having too much fun with this one. Another look and it reminded me of just how awful the 80's were for style! Lookin' good you 3 fashoinistas!

BKNRC said...

I love the video. So funny!! And the pictures are just great. Ella is so sweet. Shawndra, I am constanly thinking about you!

Becky said...

What great pictures! Shawndra for everything you have been through you truly look beautiful!! What a beautiful daughter you both have. Ok Doug, your cute too. hehe. I continue to lift you guys up in prayer!

My goodness Shawndra, you are SO pretty. You could never tell you were in pain or fighting this horrible cancer. Your grace & inner beauty must be so strong that they radiate from the inside out & cover up any sign of the battle you've been fighting.
I love this picture of you & Ella, yet it makes it very hard for me to understand and accept how you can look so perfectly healthy, young & vibrant with so much more to do & see, and then believe that there's something going on inside of you that they're saying they can't fix?
Its just a weird reality check b/c all of the pictures on the side bar are from when your struggle was relatively new or they had plans of action still to persue. I guess I expected you to look different, like you were sick.
I definitely believe in miracles & though I believe you already are a miracle, I do believe in a miracle for you. There has to be more they can do? Are they going to check anytime soon to see if your marker has gone down?
I think of you often & pray for you daily. Thank You Doug for the picture of Shawndra & Ella, would love to see more of them. I'm a " picture " fanatic. I bring my camera everywhere & love taking & looking at photos. I have invested in Kodak after the birth of my son, a little over a year ago! :)
Ella is beautiful. Shawndra is beautiful & Doug, you're not so bad yourself :)! What a nice looking FAMILY.
The video was a crack up too. To those of us who only see your personality shine through in your writing, it really is neat to SEE the personality behind the person. Thank You for posting all of this.
I hope you are getting to go home today & spend the weekend at home where you belong. Can't wait to hear from you, Shawndra! God Bless you all, Vickie, Joey & Brett Wieberg

What a good looking family! What I really love is the look of joy on Ella's face. With all that your family has been through your daughter is still full of joy. She is blessed to be so loved.
