Memorial Day

We went to my brother-in-law and sister-in-laws house for a BBQ and to feed the ducks. We had a nice time. It was a nice end to a roller coaster of a week...especially since we went back to reality on Tuesday. We captured a cute picture of the kids and a nice family picture. Just thought I'd post them!!!

Sad News

We had a really rough day on Saturday. Ryan's dad passed away. It has been really hard on the family, of course. We are thankful that we could all be together to be one another's strengths. People have been so kind an generous with all of their thoughts and phone calls and dinners for my mother-in-law. It is so nice. We have also received some caring phone calls and offers to help out with whatever we need. It's amazing to see all of the generosity from friends and family during our time of need. We are having a funeral for him on Thursday. It is going to be a busy couple of days until then. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. How blessed we are to know that we are an eternal family. We love you Grandpa Ray!!!!

We had the funeral on Thursday. It was really wonderful. I know that he was looking down on us with a big grin on his face. He should be so proud!! We truly honored the great man that he was.

They've Got the Right Stuff!!

I can't believe that these guys are coming back...after 15 years!! I was so in love with them in junior high. I had the poster in my bedroom (of Donnie Wahlberg, of course), the pillow case, the t-shirts, the HUGE button that I pinned onto the belt loop of my jeans, the keychains. LOVED THEM!! I am hoping that their music will appeal to those of us that loved them back in the day as well as the kids now. Boy, do I feel old in saying that statement or what?!?!

It's time for another birthday!! Bug is 5 today! I can't believe it! That means that Kindergarten is right around the corner. I can't believe that she is old enough already. She is really growing up. Like I always say, time flies!! She is very loving and caring. She likes to be my good helper...most of the time! She is all girl...and I love it!! Happy Birthday, my sweet girl!
