Gus and Kaylene Knoell

*I should have posted this months ago*

My youngest brother Gus married Kaylene Moriarty last November.

2 13

They have a beautiful daughter together named, Aubrey Joan Knoell.


We also got a rare photo of all the siblings together at their wedding.

Arthur and Alaska

Recently I was blessed to witness a good friend’s deaconate ordination this past June in Anchorage, Alaska. Deacon Arthur Roraff was my boss for five years while I was a resident of Anchorage. We also happened to run around in the same circle. I was lucky enough to work for/with Arthur who I was able to attend daily Mass with. Those years spent in Anchorage working with The Coordinators, Inc. was probably some of the best years of my life. I count down the days until his priestly ordination next June. Congratulations, Arthur! May God bless you always.

A surprise look at #5.

We just entered the 2nd trimester and are excited to meet him/her in mid November.

A thumb sucker like mom used to be.

First of many…

Today I washed the first ever “skid marked” underwear in this household. Not mine of course but Constantine’s. I am proud to announce that he is nearly 90% potty trained! And it was a piece of cake which means that I should have done it a lot sooner than I did. So, only three in diapers now, yay!
