I'm Playing Catch Up!!!!

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 fiance our Uncle Richard. Aunt Margie is my Dad's sister. She married my Uncle Sam when she was 16 years old if I remember right. They had Valerie, Valinda, Karen and Chet. My Uncle Sam passed away back in 2001. I loved my Uncle Sam dearly but he was just a little controlling, and although he is missed very much you just can't imagine how happy and thrilled we are to see our Aunt Margie living and loving life they way she is. And it is all because of this wonderful man she has brought into our lives. Uncle Richard is so awesome, and he LOVES our Aunt Margie sooooo much. They will be married at the end of April and we could not be more excited!!!! Two weeks ago all of the aunts threw her a shower with STRIPPER and all!!!! Can you believe it!!!! To be totally honest we were all sure that our Uncle Sam was flip floppin around like a fish out of water in his grave!!! lolol Aunt Margie never had a wedding shower before. It was so much fun, but there is just one picture of her and the stripper, because I just did not have it in me to post any of the other pictures. But I will tell you that the backgrounds of the pictures were priceless. All of our auntS, and even my mom were just cracking up!!! It was all of us girls that were just almost embarassed!! Hello , these are our mothers!!!!!!!!!
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"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hubert and Lisa both turned 40 and we had a party for them!!!!!! Gosh they are so old!!! lolol We had alot of fun, and they both got some pretty cute "old fart gifts"!!! Happy Birthday you two, we love you!!!
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 my precious Debby's baby shower!!! Isn't she just beautiful!! This is my favorite picture of her of all time other than this picture of her that I used to have when she was about 2 or 3 years old, I loved that picture when we were growing up and whenever I needed something to pick me up I would look at it and now I have this one. I think she is beautiful!!! I can't wait until Baby Cash is here so I can love him to pieces.
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!!!!

I want that mug! (Smile!) What a fun post--it's great to have so many great people in life! I figured that you've been busy...usually you have more posts! Keep having fun!

what a great time with great friends and family! LOVE that Aunt Margie got to have a stripper and wedding shower.. LOL I've only been to one shower where there was a stripper and I was totally embarrassed. Of course, it's no worse than looking at men with a speedo on but sometimes I'm embarrassed for those men.. (especially those old guys.. lol)

On a side note.. I have not forgotten about your picture. I had it all printed out and everything but it got snatched up by a friend of ours who had come over to the house. I'll get working on printing some more and get it out in the mail. :0)
