Awww, young love. Tom sent his fiance, Debbie, flowers at work for Valentine's Day.
Debbie made a fancy Valentine's dinner. The first course was artichokes with hollandaise sauce, which Tom had never had before. Taken 2/14/96.
Jill turned five and got new clothes, books, videos, and toys. Taken 2/15/96.
We took Claire and Jill up to Minnesota so we could attend Kristine and John's wedding. We stayed with Debbie's dad and stepmom. Here's Claire hanging out near their dog, ...
... and Jill playing dress-up. Taken 3/96.
Some of our friends were out of town so we arranged to drink a toast to everyone in our two different time zones. Here are Debbie, Beth, Tom, and Andy (with Marcie, Mike, & Jim in spirit). Taken at 7:00 PM sharp on 3/7/96.
Tom worked on a board that could hold Claire's new Jelly Bean switches. Here's Claire testing out one of the switches, ...
... and here she is with the final result. The pink one operates a radio; the purple one operates a fan. She loves them! Taken 3/12/96
Tom's identical twin brother, Ken, came to visit for the weekend so we took him to Kim and Larry's St. Patrick's Day party. We brought fixings to make pigs-in-blankets which they assembled on site.
Here are Debbie, Beth, Tina, and Monica at the party. Much fun was had. Taken 3/16/96.
Tom and Debbie visiting San Francisco, taken 3/23/96. Gorgeous weather, great time. Tom was there just for the weekend, and Debbie stayed the following week for the Software Development '96 conference.
We stayed overnight with Debbie's aunt and uncle, Herb and Cyl, in Portola Valley. Herb and Cyl did the excellent landscaping in the photo themselves. Taken 3/24/96.
Debbie had dinner with her friend Marcel while in San Francisco. Taken 3/26/96.
Debbie's friend, Bob, flew his Mooney up from San Diego for a visit. Taken 3/27/96.
Debbie's aunt Ruth was in Indianapolis visiting her daughter, Kathy, who had recently moved to the area.
They visited us for the afternoon and we had great fun with Kathy's son, Josh. Taken 4/6/96.
The next day was Easter, so we colored eggs. Taken 4/7/96.
Claire was knocked out by a case of the flu, so her sister joined her for a while to keep her company. Taken 4/96.
Here's Claire and her soon-to-be stepdaddy, ...
... and here's Claire smiling while having some snacks. Taken 4/96.
It was Girls Night Out in Indianapolis. Here are Debbie, Melinda, Beth, Michelle, Marcie, Tina, Monica, Sally, and lucky John, bumming a ride in the limo with us.
Behold the first and last time this dress was seen in public.
We had a great time all evening. At the end of the evening, Tom came to collect Debbie from Sally's house. Taken 4/30/96.
Here are Jill & Claire, looking quite adorable in matching dresses. Taken 5/96.
Claire and her Life Skills class visited the Indy 500 Museum on a field trip. Taken 5/96.
On another field trip, they went to McDonald's. Taken 5/96.
Debbie's aunt and uncle, Mary and Bob, came to visit and attend the Indy 500. The only photo we took of the entire visit was this one of the refrigerator because of all of the beautiful food it contained: kabobs, fruit salad, and chocolate layered dessert, plus box lunches for the trip to the race. Taken 5/25/96.
Debbie and a table full of her Baker Hill colleagues attended Indiana Software Association Awards dinner. Here is company founder Karen Hill speaking. Taken 6/4/96.
Debbie's dad came to visit so we took the kids to the Indianapolis Zoo.
Debbie's friend Jenni is a zoo volunteer, and she helped Claire hold a turtle, which Claire promptly turned upside down.
Claire really enjoyed having a front row seat at the dolphin show. Taken 6/22/96.
The next day, we co-hosted the annual Indiana Rett Syndrome Group's family picnic at Greg's house. Taken 6/23/96.
When that was nearly over, we ran to the Baker Hill picnic being held on the same afternoon. Also taken 6/23/96.

Here are their girlfriends: Juliet is on the left, Debbie is on the right. Taken 6/30/96.
For Tom's birthday, we spent a night at Country Chalet, a cabin in Brown County. It had many cool features, including a huge bathtub surrounded by stone, ...
... and a small loft upstairs. Taken 7/1/96.
Ken stopped by and played with his soon-to-be nieces. Taken 7/4/96.

Debbie's Baker Hill colleagues gathered at Melanie's house for a bridal shower. Here are Elizabeth and Michelle. Taken 7/22/96.
Tom & Debbie got married! Our justice of the peace took this photo of all four of us before she left, ...
... but five-year-old Jill took this photo of us, just moments after the brief but beautiful ceremony.
Here is Tom with his new stepdaughter, Jill, who did a terrific job as flower girl at our little backyard wedding. Taken 7/26/96.
Since our wedding consisted of just the four of us, we hosted a small reception the next day in our tiny condo. We put up a collage of photos taken in the year that we had been together.
Our friend Jim took some portraits of us outdoors ...
.. and indoors.
We had an official wedding cake even though we only had a dozen or so guests.
We changed into casual clothes and opened our gifts.
We had a great time. Ken, Juliet, Tom and Debbie demonstrated the Bundy Sandwich, while Ken & Tom modeled new napkins we had received. Taken 7/27/96.
In August, Debbie's Grandma Normark came to visit, accompanied by Debbie's aunt Evelyn. We didn't get a single picture of the two of them, but here are Debbie's cousin Kathy and her son Josh.
Afterwards, our sweet girls watched a video together. Taken 8/3/96.
We spent a glorious 11 days in Scandinavia (August 28 - Sept. 8). Read all about it here. We attended the World Congress on Rett Syndrome in Göteborg, where Queen Silvia of Sweden spoke. She walked right past us twice, so we were able to get this great closeup photo on 9/1/96. (Also see our photos of Queen Elizabeth, taken in 2002!)
Also attending the conference were some terrific Aussies, Bill Callaghan, the president of the Rett Syndrome Association of Australia, and Dr. Helen Leonard, Researcher Extraordinaire. It was great to finally put some faces with the names. Taken 8/31/96.
We took a ferry to Denmark and spent some time on the North Sea. Taken 9/1/96.
We got to see Lillehammer, Norway, without all the snow. Look for ski hills in the background next to the sign. Taken 9/3/96.
Sweden looks a lot like Northern Minnesota! Taken 9/4/96.
In the north of Sweden, we visited Debbie's second cousin Kristina, shown here with her parents, Gunnar and Birgit, and her partner, David. Taken 9/5/96.
Now, we may be a bit biased, but we think Kristina and David's daughter, Elina, is the most beautiful 2-year-old in all of Europe. Taken 9/5/96.
Jill performed in a dance recital at her daycare. Taken 9/96.

Doug and Susan are expecting! This photo, taken from an .AVI file Doug and Susan made on 10/24/96, shows that Junior was getting ready to arrive soon! Baby Stewart was born on Thanksgiving Day.

Baker Hill employees dressed up for Halloween at work. That's Debbie as Lizzie Borden on the left.
Baker Hill kids came by the office to trick-or-treat. Claire is dressed as a tiger in the wheelchair on the left, and Jill is dressed as Esmerelda in the lower right. Taken 10/31/96.
Debbie flew to the Twin Cities for a business trip to Coon Rapids, so she extended her trip by a day to visit her dad and attend 3M Employee Pride Days with her dad. There were lots of cool things to see and do, including getting a digital photo taken and printed on the spot. Taken 11/15/96.
Claire loves dogs, and here she is actually throwing a ball to Eric & Paula's dog. Taken 11/17/96.
We traded in Tom's Toyota Supra ...
... for a new gold 1997 Saturn sedan. You can tell ours apart from all the others because ... well, okay, you can't, but it's a great car. Taken 11/19/96.
Here's a nice family shot of us taken by Patti when she and Margaret visited for dinner in November. (Editor's note: the original photo was scanned with cutting edge 1996 technology and is long gone. All other photos on this page were rescanned in 2018 which is why this one stands out as such low quality.)
Here's another photo taken of us that evening. Taken 11/96.
Claire's just chillin' with her video and her Instant Breakfast. Taken 11/96.
Las Vegas was the place to be on Thanksgiving Day 1996. Here are Mark, Debbie, Tom, Mike, Marcie, Jim, Beth, and Andy in front of the Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino, our home-away-from-home for the weekend.
Bob flew us from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in his Mooney on 11/30/96. Here's a very cool view of the Hoover Dam (you can see the wing of the Mooney in the corner of the photo).
Here we are enjoying the sunset at the Grand Canyon. It was cold but gorgeous. Taken just before the sunset at Pima Point on 11/30/96. Read all about it here.
Claire loves hanging out in this loft at her daycare. Taken 12/96.
Tom sent Debbie flowers for her birthday at work. Taken 12/13/96.
Less than a week later, she got more flowers, but these were from our friends because she had a terrible case of strep throat. Taken 12/18/96.
Here's our annual Christmas photo for 1996.
