Hi everyone!!!! I just wanted to apologize for not being around lately. With work, volleyball practice and tournaments, drivers ed everynight 30 miles away, teaching youth at church on Wednesdays, birthday parties, baby showers, wedding showers, we have really been busy. I have not yet seen one of Drake, Coby, Miranda, Lily, or Haley's baseball games! My sweetie pie neice Lily had her 8th birthday party and if you can believe it , I forgot my camera!!! I ALWAYS have my camera, so there are no pictures to share!!! I am praying for things to slow down because I miss all of you so much. I apologize for such a long post but I just had to share all of this with you. I hope you enjoy some of the happenings in our ordinary great life!!! Have a great and very blessed weekend!!!!
My friend Lea from Ontario sent me this coffee mug and I LOVE it!!! I think it is so precious, in the bottom of the mug it reads, "Peace and Love and cha cha cha!!!" How cute is that. Thank you Lea, I love it!!!!
This is my Aunt Margie and her daughters. My cousins Val, Valinda , Karen and my cousin Chet's wife Tracy!!!! Aren't they beautiful!!!! I love all of them so much.
And this would be Aunt Margie with "THE MAN"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was trying to get a good picture of my girls and my Daddy, (Poppy) kept creeping in the picture as you can see!!! Too funny!!! Love my Daddy!!!
But I did get it finally! Aren't they just scrumptious!!!! Love 'em so much!! They are my Lil'Peeps!!!!!
This is Shannon, she now lives in Houston and I have not seen her for years! I think about her and miss her all the time. People she has never changed!!!! She has two beautiful children. She cracks me up, she kept telling me how good I looked. She's a liar!!! I have every wrinkle my Grandma had, but she says that in all her pictures she photoshops her crows feet !!! Doesn't that just crack you up!!! And it is so Shannon!! I love you Shannon !!
OK this is part of our "GANG"!!! We all grew up together and I must admit that we all learned how to drink beer together!!!! On the bottom left to right is my sister Kerry, Deb, and Dana, and top row is Jennifer, Me, Shannon and Missy. Jennifer and Missy are sisters and Debby's cousins. There are alot more of us but I have to tell you it is so great to get with these ladies again. All of us except Shannon still live here but are so busy with our families that we never get to just hang out together. There is alot of history here. All of our parents have known each other for 40 years plus, we are all from 40 down to at least 36 years old. There is three of us that have been divorced and remarried, one of us even married him again!!! There is a breast cancer survivor!(Praise God), all of us have raised children , and/or step children, two of us have been thru some sort of heart surgery with our children, one of us was in a car accident with her boyfriend when we were in high school , and Debby and Missy were with me the entire day that Christopher died so many years ago!!!! Like I said before there is alot of history and I really, really love these gals!!!! I love all of you and thank you for the memories and I am looking forward to making more!!!
God bless these women, these are our MOMS!!!!!! From left is Potsy, Dana's mom, Gloria , a.k.a. Glo, Debby's mom , Sudie, mine and Kerry's mom, and Helen, Shannon's mom!!!!! We know there were times when we put them through hell. But they have always loved us unconditionally and it kind of scares me that our parent's are now the "Older people" in our lives. It was so good seeing my mom with her friends, even though at times she seemed really confused she knew exactly who they were and just thrived in the presence. No matter what life throws us, we know we always have each other and life is good!!!!
