"In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love."
Alfred Lord Tennyson

But today's photos prove young-at-heart folks of all ages are thinking about love... I received these from Joe Kirkish, along with the following note:
I was passing my blind neighbor's house and saw this - someone in the family must have painted it on the car now belonging to the new Mr. and Mrs. Stefanich, married on May 1. Gerry Stefanich and bride Debra Simpson enjoyed a whirlwind courtship... you might say it was love at first "sight," then they tied the knot at Bethany Baptist Church in Dollar Bay. Gerry was a teacher at the E.B. Holman school in Stanton Township for years before he retired. Everywhere he goes he is recognized as a favored teacher by students now grown up - obviously a popular person while there. His wife, Debra, worked at then Suomi College and later, on the floor at Walmart, where she stood out as an exceptionally helpful sales clerk, recognized though not known by name.
Congratulations to the Newlyweds and wishes for many happy years together!

Guess this is 'family day' on the Pasty Cam, as we congratulate the newlyweds above, and welcome a newborn - our second granddaughter: Kit Ashlyn Howard, 6 lb 13 oz, 19 inches, born yesterday afternoon in Logan, UT, where Edie and I are spending a few days.

Becky - - - - - - Kit - Bryan - Kira
Sleeping Beauty

You may have spoken with Becky in the past, as she was the one answering the pasty hotline a few years back, before these U.P. kids moved out west. This is also the second grandchild for Bryan's mom and dad, Gary and Paula Howard of Hancock. Congratulations to all, and prayers and best wishes for the little one and the whole family.

Congratulations is definetely the word today for the Howard's, the Hopper's, and the Stefanich's! God's Blessings to all!

By Serena Sturm (Serena) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 08:40 am:

Congrats to both families!

Newlyweds look so happy!

Kit is beautiful!

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 08:44 am:

Congratulations, Charlie and Edie. It looks like you were a little more composed this time, as you seem to have the correct weight and size. When Kira was born, I remember you described her as 14ft, 120lbs (or something like that). It looks like your becoming an old pro at this :)
Congrats again, to you and your family.

By Helen Marie Chamberlain (Helen) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 08:54 am:

Congratulations to ALL! Just look at the beautiful Kit and all that hair! Ours were all bald as they were blonde and very easy to pick out in the nursery! ENJOY! They grow up too fast.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 09:19 am:

Congratulations to all of the Hoppers on your new little blessing! She looks perfect to me, including her size!

Also, congratulations to the Stefanich's, and wishing you a lifetime of happiness together.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 09:37 am:

Congratulations, she is beautiful.

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 09:40 am:

Happiness all around. What a grand way to start a yucky day for me. God bless all.

By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 10:05 am:

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the Howard's with a baby carriage! :-)

Congrats to Becky, Bryan, Kira and both sets of Grandma's and Grandpa's!! Love the pink note attached to Kit's little bed..."Cutest Baby in the Nursery"...Well, of course!

Finally something to celebrate today since the weather does not warrant celebrating. Best of everything to the newlyweds and new parents!!

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 10:27 am:

Oh, and congrats to the newlygrandparents!!

By Pat & Glenda (Gormfrog) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 10:38 am:

Kit, your first life lesson: "Smiles are magnetic--they draw people together"! Congratulations Becky & Bryan!

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 01:52 pm:

Congratulations Charlie, and family! It seems like just yesterday when my 15 year old daughter was lying in one of those bassinettes. Enjoy every moment, every day. Don't blink.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 02:17 pm:

Greta, I can do you one reminds me of our second-born 50 years ago (6/9/60). Where did all that time go...and you're right...don't BLINK! I still remember my first, 3/6/55, nothing like a newborn to give one hope! Congrats to your whole family, Charlie and Edie! God bless!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 02:21 pm:

In case my 'first-born' reads this, I need to correct a mistake my 'computer' made :)....that should read 3/SEVEN/55!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 03:28 pm:

Congrats 2 the Newlyweds + the couple with the new baby.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 03:41 pm:

Check out Gerry's tie clip....the guy has class!

U.P. Class

WELCOME to Pastyland little Baby!

And CONGRATS to the Newlyweds too!

Much Love and Light to all!

By Just me (Jaby) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 09:23 pm:

Thanks for the happy pics on pasty today!

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 11:30 pm:

Shirley, I can see you know what I mean. A belated Happy Mother's Day to you, and all moms.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 08:25 am:

The date up top says Tues May 12. Tues was the 11th (aka as Mikie's birthday).

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 - 09:08 am:

About the day/time in small letters with the "What's UP" link after the pictures: that is the timestamp of the latest posting, not the date it was published. In this case, the Tuesday What'sUP had a note posted on the 12th (Wednesday).

Thanks for all the good wishes sent our way. Bryan brought Becky and Kit home from the hospital Tuesday evening, little more than 24 hours after Kit was born. She already seems right at home.
