Edens Year 9 Part 1: Elsie's Wedding!



Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! It was the start of 2018 and year 8 had ended with some truly shocking events. Baby Judges (#7) was born in October, and in December dear Elsie got engaged! Which of course means a wedding in March 2018! 

But first..


Wow they really waste no time, do they?

Ok so baby #8 is on its way, and Genesis, all of 7 years old, is the one comforting her siblings in the middle of the night because her parents are more worried about Counting On. What a great wife and mother she'll make one day.


Clearly Cale thought that about Elsie, because they're getting married!! Welcome to True Believer's Baptist Church. Their slogan is "Others will burn in Hell, but we won't!" and the Johnsons and Edens have been attending for decades.


(Notice the church coffee shop that both Eva and Elsie have worked at! :)

Cale may have been a little nervous


but the wedding went perfectly and was such a God-honoring event! Here, Elsie and Cale share their very first kiss, one at the altar of Christ. Kissing for Jesus sure is neat!


Close-up of the new Mrs. Cale Tobias in her bridal gown (shirt/skirt combo). Sadly, their town is full of sluttish women, and there is no Miss Renee, so Elsie's dress has a few more eye-traps than the Lord may have liked, but Cale sure wasn't complaining. 



And yes, that is a new home they're standing in! Cale and Elsie ran out of the church immediately following the ceremony, as you do, and went to the home Cale had purchased Debt Free on his part-time landscaping income. Since Cale and Elsie are both huge foodies, and have celebrated many precious moments at Chez Llama, the house is right next door in the restaurant district! In fact, they are even both starting jobs in the restaurant industry! Elsie would like to take her skills into a professional kitchen, and Cale likes complaining about food other people made so he will start as a food critic. What a match made in Heaven y'all!

Their place is a cozy 2Bed/1Bath home with space to expand if the Lord should bless them and open Elsie's womb! But...I have a feeling the Lord may not have unlimited access to Elsie's womb. I don't intend to play Cale and Elsie very much, so we will have to see what their family is up to together, and how fundie they stay! Tobiaseses out! 


But let's check back in with the Edens for one moment. Reality comes crashing down after the wedding as Eva sits at home, pregnant, with 3 children, 3 toddlers, and 1 baby, all under the age of 8. And I just turned free will back on. Please send Eva your thoughts and prayers -  she's gonna need 'em!


P.S. My future MIL is visiting this weekend so while I will be discussing another wedding (that is hopefully much much different than above), the next blog post may be delayed. The Edens and I will return soon though. Thanks for tuning in! :) Free Elsie!

I expect your wedding gown to look exactly like that monstrosity god-fearing fabric (minus the shoulder bones, you can't go showing those)

Have fun!

You're killing me here! :laughing-rolling: 

I hope the visit with your future MIL goes well and that your wedding planning goes smoothly. :)

      I've always liked the phrase folie à deux. I associate it with besotted lovers who've lost all touch with objective reality. Wikipedia says "Folie à deux ('madness for two'), also known as shared psychosis or shared delusional disorder (SDD), is a psychiatric syndrome in which symptoms of a delusional belief, and sometimes hallucinations, are transmitted from one individual to another." Is that what's going on here?

      Interesting thought!

      Weirdly, I was close to two people that I fully believe wound up sharing folie à deux.  It ended two lifelong friendships for me and it was an unsettling and sometimes scary situation at its peak.  I believe that the pair that I knew fit into the subcategory referred to as folie imposée (a dominant personality imposes their delusions on the other, but with separation the delusions disappear from the non-dominant person).    Until just now, I assumed that was the only manifestation of this illness. 

      I just saw, though, that there's another type, folie simultanée.*  If Spanky and #2 suffer from it, judging solely from what they've put out for public consumption, I would believe it's this one, as both parties seem to have had serious problems prior to meeting, which have only gotten more public, if not more severe.

      It is a weird, horrible thing to witness firsthand.

      *two people considered to suffer independently from psychosis influence the content of each other's delusions so they become identical or strikingly similar, or one in which two people "morbidly predisposed" to delusional psychosis mutually trigger symptoms in each other.

      And @browngrl it was Kelly Brown who was married to Bradrick. 

      Yes, she remarried a couple of years ago and has at least one more kid with the new husband.

      5 Ways To Be A Better Wife! || Treat your husband the way you would want to be treated 💙
      CA says she's also going to do a video about ways Husbands can be better for their wives. I think I would like her if she hadn't decided her personality was "married conservative".


      1. Communicate. She uses the examples of a husband not noticing you wearing a new dress, getting a haircut, or giving the house an extra cleaning, which is totally not stereotyping at all. Her advice is to tell him what would make you happy (IE, "if you come home and notice the house is clean, give me a hug and thank me"), because he wants to make you happy. She also says not to let anger percolate, and don't let your emotions run away with you.
      2. Respect your husband even if you disagree. "But it is very important for men to feel respected; that their wives respect everything about what they do and who they are and how they think." I guess women don't care? 
      3. Show him love in the way he receives it, not the way you want to give it. This is based on the book "The 5 Love Languages", which CA loves. Weirdly enough, she mentions having made her whole family read it, but when she says "figuring out your husband's love language", she doesn't mention having your husband read it.
      4. Always make your husband feel loved and respected when you're around other people. CA asks if you've ever been out with a couple and the wife is constantly poking fun at/complaining about her husband while he's right there. CA suggests you want to be the kind of wife an unmarried man looks at and hopes he can find someone who loves and respects him as much as you do your husband, and making your husband feel the same way you do when he makes you feel beautiful and loved.
      5. Figure out the chores each of you likes and dislikes, and make it work. I'm shocked to hear CA washes the dishes and her husband takes out the trash.

      Me clicking play: "Eh, can't be that bad."
      Me at the end of the video: "I should count how many eye-rolls these videos receive."

      I mean, the advice isn't bad, but how is it specific to husbands? Do women not value being respected? She could have made just one video... but I guess that would be too inclusive. If you put "spouse" in the title, LGBTQI+ might watch! She and MM do the same thing; the advice is gender-neutral, but they make it specific.

      I'm interested in her video for the husbands, though I have a feeling it's going to focus on how to make your wife feel loved... and beautiful. 🙄

      I saw Joy and Austin’s dog in the latest episode on their front porch with his food dishes and only a towel to sleep on. 😕 They could at least get him a bed if they are going to make him live outside.
