Deirdre was the maid of honor at
a friendís wedding when this

second cousin, Tori

One of the things that cracks me up about this photo is that we have about 30 years' worth of family portraits taken in front of this tree... (It's in the park at the end of the street where my kids grew up, and now Brandon and his family live there. Who ever thought that we'd be creating a family homestead in suburban Southern California?)

NoŽl Elisabeth (Cooney) Dilks

Left: NoŽl and her husband,
Timothy Aaron Dilks.

Left, from left: Yohanna Sara Hampen, Victoria Elisabeth Rose Holguin (Karenís only daughter), and NoŽlís oldest daughter, Karen Elisabeth (Hampen/Dilks) Holguin (NoŽlís daughter from her first marriage)

Yohanna is Karenís half-sister (they share a father). NoŽlís view is that if Hanniís mother is Karenís stepmother, then NoŽl is Hanniís stepmother as well. And if Karen calls her stepmother "Mom," well then, Hanni can call her stepmother "Mom" too!


Left: Daniel Aaron Dilks, Tim's son by his first marriage. NoŽl and Tim have been together since Danny was a baby; we've been his family all his life.


Likewise, Karen views Tim as her only father, since her biological father (and Hanniís) left early in her life.

Right: Rebecca Carol Dilks,
NoŽl and Timís daughter.

Above: Ryan Thomas Dilks (named after Timís favorite two baseball players: Nolan Ryan and Frank Thomas). When NoŽl was still pregnant, I asked Tim what the babyís name would be if she were a girl. He shrugged and said, ďSheíll adjust.Ē

Miscellaneous Photos










Above: When I flew in for Erinís wedding in 2003, the ďbachelorette partyĒ
met me at the airport. The group consisted of all the girls in the family except
my mom. It also included two boys: Andrew Ė who was totally smitten with
his four beautiful new cousins and chose to hang out with them rather than
with the boys in the family; and Liam Ė who was totally enchanted to have
a new boy cousin in the family (heís got plenty enough girls surrounding
him). They made a sign so Iíd know which group I was to meet, but had a
friend of Beckyís whom Iíd never met hold the sign, so I didnít even look
at it! (Itís how I sign my emails to the family, so itís a bit of an inside
joke). In the background behind me are Erin, Karen (with her hand over
her mouth), and the sign-holding friend of Beckyís (whose name escapes
me). I think we we were just very happy to see each other, since Erin
lives in Colorado, and I live in HawaiĎi, it doesnít happen often!
