JoNanna's Wedding Dress

All little girls (and big girls, too) love weddings, so Ali's paternal grandmother, JoAnn Denniston Seese (Nicknamed JoNanna), pulled out her wedding dress and let Ali try it on.  Ali was 11 so she had a few years to wait.

Alexandria and her family participate in an annual Pesach Seder at Covenant Bible Church in Lincolnton, NC, in the Spring of each year. 
Ali's paternal grandfather, Curtis Loftin, co-leads the Messianic group, Beit Yeshua,
that hosts the annual Messianic Passover meeting

There is usually an Israeli Folk Dance performance piece at the beginning of the evening
The Seese family seated to the left of the dancers
With 200+ in attendance, there are regular and low seats
Ali joins many from the congregation as Curtis leads the group in Israeli Folk Dance during a time of praise and worship as the evening progresses
Curtis, along with Doug Williams, lead the Seder
As the 10 plagues that came upon the Egyptians are recited, we're reminded that a great price was paid for the deliverance of the Israelites.  As Believers, we, too, have been purchased with a great price - the blood of Messiah Yeshua/Jesus.

Loftin Family Reunion


The Loftin Family Reunion always takes place on the third Sunday in May - for the descendants of William Alexander Loftin and Laura Rossie Cranford Loftin.  Ali's descendancy comes from William Alexander Loftin to Alonzo Lester Loftin to Sam William Loftin to Curtis Dean Loftin to Elizabeth "Beth" Ann Loftin Seese to Ali Seese.

Various members of the family are recognized before the meal

The Beach

The Seese family joined Beth's parents, Curtis & Carolyn Loftin, for a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC.  Brad's mother, JoAnn Seese, was also invited to join the group for the summer vacation.
The Loftins & Seeses always try to book lodging at Xanadu when they are at the beach
The entire family enjoyed the balcony overlooking the beach

Cross-Country Track
As Alexandria headed into 7th Grade at River Bend Middle School, she decided to drop dance (which she had been doing since she was three years old) and take up cross-country track.
Some last-minute instructions as River Bend's track team gets ready for a Track Meet
on 30 September 2014
The River Bend girls get ready for their meet

SUKKOT / The Feast of Tabernacles

The Seese family helps Poppi & Nonni (Curtis & Carolyn) get the fabric up in order to convert their Pergola into a sukkah for the Biblical Feast of Sukkot/Tabernacles.

The Amazing Maize Maze
On 18 Oct 2014, as the recommendation of Ali's Uncle Philip, the Seese family (along with Poppi & Nonni Loftin) went to Huntersville, NC, to participate in The Amazing Maize Maze.
This is where it all happens
The maze is located in this large cornfield in Huntersville
Only one way in and one way out
Entrance to the Maze
Carolyn, Beth, Brad, Ali, Savanna and Curtis
Ali and Savanna pose for a photo as the family waits to begin the maze
As we started our trek into the maze, we soon separated into two groups
Ali & Savanna went off on their own leaving the adults to fend for themselves
Brad carried the flag for the adults
Signs like this gave pieces of baseball trivia as we trekked through the maze
Kernel of Knowledge #1 Down
1. Willie Maize is our Maze character and you are standing in his hat.  In his career, the real Willie Mays had 3,283 hits, 568 homeruns, won Rookie of The Year in 1951, and played in 4 World Series
Kernel of Knowledge # 3 Across
3. The term "hotdog" was coined in 1931 at the New York Parks Grounds where the vendors were yelling "Get your dachshund sausages while they're red hot!"  A sports cartoonist heard the vendors & drew a cartoon of a barking dachshund nestled warmly in rolls.  Not sure how to spell "dachshund" he simply wrote "hot dog!"  The cartoon was a sensation and the term "hot dog" was born.
There were mailboxes throughout the maze that held tape and pieces of a map
Your goal, collect all the pieces of the map and find your way out of the maze
Brad, Beth and Carolyn confer as to where they think the next mailbox is located
Which way do we go from here?
Both groups finally connected at the end and exited together

One of her most favorite people in the whole world
The kids and grandkids chat while Nonni & Poppi wash dishes and put up the food
Kayli was the first to open her Christmas presents
Poppi & Nonni gave Ali and Savanna money for Christmas, but Philip, Leslie & Kayli had two really big boxes for the girls - but the boxes weren't too heavy
What could it be?
Two big boxes full of BALLOONS !
They soon found out that the balloons had money in them
but they had to pop the balloons in order to get the money out

Ali, I love you so very much.  Every photo that I've added to this page made me smile - and reminded me just how special you are.  You're kind, sweet and gentle.  May you always follow after the ways of the LORD and may you grow up to serve Yeshua/Jesus with zeal and passion.  Only "true" happiness comes from Him.  Love you, Poppi.
