In Honor of Savannah’s GREAT Uncle!

August 19th, 2007 by chrislovescatherine

The beginning of this post is to honor my dear Uncle Marvin. He is my dad’s older brother, and I love him and miss him. He went home to be with our dear Saviour in July 2004. One of the things I would have loved to do is place little Savannah in his arms and let him share some of his wisdom with her. My uncle impacted my life in a big way during the 8 months that I lived in Tallahassee with him. I know he would have loved this picture. This is for you Kim M. and all those at FSU that loved my Uncle, keep his memory alive, and still keep in touch with the Overby’s. The cap is authentic Uncle Marvin (one that he actually wore).


Dad and Mom are here visiting this weekend, and we are sure enjoying the fellowship. Dawn and Kevin are going to be here on Sunday, and we will get to meet my niece Roxie Rochelle Meyer. I am sure looking forward to that. Here is a picture of our cute little niece.


Dad and I went fishing this evening and we caught a mess of fish. Dad out fished me this time…probably won’t be the last time either. Much of what I learned about fishing, I learned from my Dad, but he still can out fish me even on a bad day. One thing about it though…he doesn’t rub it in as much as he used to, because I think he likes holding his new granddaughter!


We worked on my boat motor some today and in the process discovered something new…a “redneck wave runner” (bet you can’t do THIS with a four wheeler!)


I have pictures of me and Savannah on this contraption, but I decided it looked like I was really taking her for a ride, and I didn’t want to hear about it later… instead here is a picture of me keeping out of trouble..


Mom also is getting her share of baby time…in fact, if the baby starts to cry and is not in somebody’s arms, Grandma will come a runnin!


Well, that is all for now at the Overby’s. I probably will be posting again soon with more pictures from this weekend. Catherine is doing well, but tired. Please pray for a speedy recovery for her…she is still recovering, and it is increasingly hard for her to “take it easy and get lots of rest.” Right now she never gets more than three to five hours of uninterrupted sleep. I have been calling her my wonder woman here lately. She is really incredible! I love her so much and I am so proud of her!

    Awww, cute stuff! I like the modifications on your four wheeler – maybe if you just used inner tubes instead of tires it would work out!

    She is growing by leaps and bounds…it’s been like a week since I have seen her and she has grown soo much! Amazing stuff…

About Chris & Catherine

It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money.
