Pictures taken During the Fall and Winter of 2002-2003 AD/CE
These begin in October and continue (hopefully) into the winter months. I'll try to get some more pictures from the 2002 Family Reunion (4 - 6 October 2002) onto this site when I get time in November or December. As it is, it extends from the reunion and Halloween (Little Ryan and ever-growing Jeffrey) through/to Thanksgiving (Madeline) and pre-Christmas (Nadia and Marie) and then through/to God only knows when ...
2002 Reunion: Whatta Bunch of folks, eh? -- Group shot taken at Johnnie's and Brooke's -- Mainly members of the extended families known as the Mraziks and the Ryans
This picture was dubbed "The Lineup" by Jeannie and James: It's Little Ryan Tjoa's first Halloween Party; Pic taken on 30 October -- so that they all could do the Trick or Treat bit on the next evening, selfishly planned so that ther parents could resupply their candy pantries, according to Jeannie, although word has it that James was the one who yelled out "trick or treat!" with little Ryan in his arms. Clever, huh?
Another quick Preview -- This one of Joe and Dawn's "babe" (unnamed as yet) at 17 Weeks in the Womb (taken on October 10, 2002)
Madeline (a darling kittie, of course) on Halloween in Corvallis, Oregon
And in Raleigh, North Carolina -- we present the little Halloween Skunk himself, "Sweet" Jeffrey -- in a play pen or a zoo cage -- your choice. Either way, his sweet smile could melt a snowman!
One more of our favorite Li'l Skunk in Raleigh . . . this time, indoors; whatta sweetie!
Madeline gets a grown-up hairccut: Four very nice pictures sent by Mary (Thanks Mary!)

And introducing . . . Michael Zachary Ryan (8 pounds and some change) great and beloved son of Dawn and Joe Ryan. Amazing how sweet and relaxed he looks after 30 hours of labor (Dawn's, not his) and 12 hours of intense work by Dawn before a "C" section finally brought him to us all . . .
