Sick on the Couch

That's me...sick on the couch since Sunday night...tonsils flared up again with something nasty, fever, chills, achy body, etc. Very glad to know that, this time next week, I will be rid of those two lumps of tissue in the back of my throat forever!

In the meantime, I've been catching up on some photos from the past few weeks, and I thought I'd share a few with you.

One of my best friends, Brent, invited me to officiate his wedding ceremony...it was my first time. We had a great time hanging out with Brent and Katie, I saw several friends from high school that I haven't seen since I graduated ten years ago, and Tricia and I enjoyed our first pleasure trip out of town without Gwyneth (we were excited to come home, though).





We've finally got our guest room set up, and Ralphie has been making the most of our new double mattress (and the hide-away from Gwyneth)...


Meka and Gwyneth have been spending more and more time playing together...


We're enjoying lots of walks around the neighborhood and the beautiful sunsets that come along with the end of summer here on the beach...






We've been involved with a bunch of different fund-raisers for our CF Walk coming up this weekend...Meka loves tagging along when she can.

And, Gwyneth continues to love squishing things against her face...

I hope your September is going well!

Nate

Hi. I haven't visited your blog in a while, and was so happy to see how healthy Tricia looks and what a big girl your daughter has grown into. You have a beautiful family...A reminder how great our God is.

Sweet post.

Whenever you get to read anything from a male perspective I enjoy it.
I am touched by how much you love your leading ladies... and it shines through in your photography.

Thanks for all the open insight and sharing.

Love the pictures! My family was just at the Outer Banks for Labor Day weekend, visiting a friend in Manteo. A good time was had by all and we even got in a little fishing! We also went to the aquarium which was great. Now I am wondering when we will get back down that way....soon I hope! God Bless!

Katey said...

Gwyneth is getting SO big...i can't believe how much she has grown!!!

Praying you feel better SOON and are back on your feet in no-time!

Penny said...

You both looked beautiful! The pics are great! I had my tonsils out at 40! Yes, 40! Best decision ever! Last time I had strep, Darvocet wouldn't touch the pain. The tonsilectomy was a piece of cake compared to strep. =)

Laura said...

Hoep that you are feeling better soon!

God bless.

What a great post! The pictures are amazing and you two look like newly-weds! Tricia is absolutely stunning! I have been reading and praying for you family since before your little one was born. I have learned so much about CF and have come to understand many things from being a Confessions follower. Thank you Nate for sharing your life and that of your family with us!

I love the end of summer in the OBX. I'm so jealous that you get that everyday. The pictures are precious. Hope you feel better soon.

Hope your "tonsil removal" goes well!

When I read the first line of the post, I thought you should get those darn things removed! Glad to hear that you are and hopefully you'll be feeling better soon. I hope there is lots of ice cream, pudding and water ice for you to enjoy during your recovery.

I love the pictures! You and Tricia are such a beautiful fun couple. It's no wonder that Gwyneth is an absolute beauty :)

Tricia Nugen said...

Great photos as always! Tricia looks amazing (that's weird to type we have the same name and same spelling) I hope your surg goes well. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Tricia's hair is looking so good these days.
I'll be praying for the upcoming surgery.

Nate, those photos are stunning. I guess it doesn't hurt that you have beautiful subjects. Tricia looks so beautiful! She's glowing.

Hope you recover quickly and that your surgery goes smoothly. Take care!

You and Tricia are smokin HOT! So happy for your little get away but know the feeling of returning home to the little one! Such a busy and beautiful time for you. I pray that you have minimal discomfort post surgery and that you enjoy all the yummy jello you will probably get to consume! :)
