24 January 2010

The Seese family stopped by Poppi & Nonni's house (Curtis & Carolyn Loftin) Sunday afternoon after church.  The girls were wearing dresses they had gotten from Poppi & Nonni for Christmas 2009.

Beth took the girls over to Uncle Philip's house on 14 Feb 2010 (Valentines Day) for some studio photos. He took various shots of them in several different outfits - including dance costumes.

Dance Photos

Savanna & Alexandria have been involved in dance almost from the time they were able to walk with Ms. Krista at the Krista Whitener Academy of Dance in Conover.  Over the years they traveled to numerous competitions in NC and even out of the state.  Part of that experience included the various dance costumes for the different dance numbers.  Uncle Philip offered to take photos of Savanna & Alexandria in their dance costumes and the date was scheduled for 14 Feb 2010.
Such a beautiful dancer and person


Thanks Uncle Philip & Leslie for all the variety of photos you've helped provide for the family over the years.

Picnic at the Lake

On 19 Jun 2010, Uncle Philip & Aunt Leslie invited the Loftin & Seese families over to the Robinson Family Lake for some fishing, games and a picnic.  It was great fun for all.
Savanna was tickled with the fish that she caught
Uncle Philip had to put the worm on her hook and remove the fish after she caught it
Aunt Leslie, however, was the one who caught the "Whopper" - and that's no fish tale!
But just like with Savanna, Uncle Philip had to take it off of the hook for her
Beth even caught a fish - but it was small compared to the fish Leslie & Savanna caught
Even though Nonni (Carolyn) didn't catch a fish, she sure had a good time trying
Philip & Leslie grilled hotdogs and hamburgers while the rest of the family brought the "fixins"
Beth and Brad take it easy while the others continue to fish
Alexandria enjoyed the swing as well as her hotdog
Poppi took the photos but Beth managed to get this photo of Poppi with Uncle Philip
After dinner the family played games

July 2010


Covenant Bible Church Summer Camp
The Loftin & Seese Families (Curtis & Carolyn, Brad & Beth, Savanna & Alexandria) have attended Covenant Bible Church in Lincolnton, NC, since the Spring of 1999.  Covenant, with a membership of 600+, has large Childrens and Youth Ministries.  Alexandria & Savanna have always looked forward to Summer Camp and the other extra activities that the Children's Ministry provides.  These photos from July 2010 show just how much fun they had.
Each day included some time in chapel with praise & worship, dance, teaching, prayer
and an opportunity for those children who don't know Jesus to invite Him into their hearts
Ali & Savanna (as well as Jude Anthony) get involved with some praise dancing
Ali & Savanna learn some additional dance moves (John David Parson & Cameron Long)

Friends are one of the best part of camp
There were all sorts of additional activities for the kids from riding the zip-line ...
... to diving and swinging from a rope into the lake ...
... and even enjoying the rock-climbing wall

Family Beach Trip

Brad, Beth, Savanna & Alexandria joined their maternal grandparents, Curtis & Carolyn Loftin, for a week at the beach - beginning on Saturday 10 July 2010.  It was a week of sun and fun at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
The two families stayed at Oceanside West I
The most difficult part of the lodging was the fact that our rooms were on the third floor
and both families had lots of luggage to carry up the three flights of stairs
Our lodging was a bit further from the beach than we had realized when we booked it
But, the rooms were very nice

But, this is what everyone had been waiting for!

Brad had to work part of the week so he traveled from home to the beach several times
Savanna and Alexandria waste no time in getting into the water

In addition to enjoying the sun, sand and water, the two families ate out part of the time, played putt-putt, stopped to get ice cream and even did some shopping.
Carolyn, Beth and Brad each brought their laptop to the beach so even on vacation
they didn't get too far from email, the internet or various projects
Ali kept Beth company while she was on her computer ...
... but Savanna was with her Dad

December 2010



05 December 2010

The Seese Family stopped over at Poppi & Nonni's house (Curtis & Carolyn Loftin) on Sunday afternoon (as usual) after church.  The girls got to open an early Christmas present.
Poppi & Nonni started  a tradition with the girls when they were very small of letting them
open a Christmas gift each Sunday during the month of December
These homemade cloth bags with deer corn, from Nonni can be heated up in the microwave for 2 minutes and help keep little girls (or big girls) warm on a cold winter day - watching TV or in bed
What could be in this second gift?
These two bottles of perfume will make the girls smell like little princesses
or with too much, drive their Mama crazy
Christmas Day
Brad, Beth, Savanna & Ali - as well as Philip & Leslie - always eat lunch with Poppi and Nonni on Christmas day.  2010 was no exception.
Poppi & Nonni's TV displayed a fireplace with festive Christmas music 

The kitchen tables and bar had Christmas china and glasses with holiday table cloths

  The Seese family got a new little female Yorkie named Gravie for Christmas

Christmas Snow
The December 2010 North American blizzard was a major nor'easter and historic blizzard affecting the United States and portions of Canada from December 5–29, 2010.  Late on December 24, the winter storm began absorbing an ample amount of Gulf stream energy; as a result, the storm was able to reorganize. The core of the storm eventually moved southeast into the Gulf of Mexico then abruptly turned sharply northeastward into the Florida panhandle and state of Georgia.  The low pressure system intensified off the North Carolina coast.  A secondary heavy snow band formed across Eastern Massachusetts the night of December 26. North Carolina was one of six US states where a state of emergency was declared due to the storm.  Snow totals in the state ranged from 1 to 10 inches in the east, from 5 to 12 inches in the central part of the state and along the I-95 corridor, and from 3 to 15 inches in the western part of NC.

Savanna, You were the "first" - the first granddaughter - and I was (and still am) so proud of you.  Spending time with you always bring joy and happiness into my life.  You have no idea just how special you are.  May you always follow the LORD and seek His direction for every choice in your life.  May you always have a close and personal relationship with Yeshua/Jesus - He's the only true source of joy and happiness.  I love you and always will.  Poppi
