Happy Birthday to You

We went to Laughlin for dad's birthday this past weekend. All of us except for dear hubby who was more than happy to stay home with the dog. If you ever feel like making yourself crazy, lock yourself in a car for 4.5 hours with 4 family members. I did come home with money in my wallet so I guess it was worth it. :)

Gotta love that face

Having a jolly old time

My Dear Aunt Dunet

I'm sorry for having such a downer blog lately but my Aunt Dunet passed away recently. I was lucky enough to go back east this summer and visit with her for one last time. Aunt Du is going to be greatly missed and is forever in our hearts.

Dad, Aunt Du, and John Wayne

Two Years

Our lives go on without you but nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartaches when someone speaks your name
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent the tears that fall
Living our lives without you is the hardest part of all
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone, we could always count on you
The special years will not return, when we were all together
But with the love within our hearts, you will walk with us forever
~Author Unknown~

Forever in our hearts
