Legos -vs- The Potato Heads

John and Jennifer (Zeller) Ewing

May 16, 2009 - John and Jen were married the end of last year in Utah. I was so glad that Lisa was able to go to that reception because she hadn't seen Jen since she was a little girl, so it has been over 20 years. Come to find out, Jen lives down the street from Lisa. How great is that! Their reception in New York was May 16th. Jen - I am glad that you are happy. It was great seeing you again too. I wish you only the best - always. Love you!
