    Earlier this week I wrote a little bit about my father in law. He passed away on Saturday night from stage 4 colon cancer. It was less than 3 weeks from when he was first diagnosed to when he passed. If that doesn’t make you appreciate time, life, and your family I don’t know what will. Please say a prayer or a few this week especially for my husband and his family as we remember and celebrate the life of a great man.

    Happy Grandparent’s Day!

    Happy Grandparent’s Day to all the grandmas, grandpas, memaws, pampas, grannies, grampy’s, pa’s, ma’s and whatever else little ones may call you. My boys are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents and great grandparents. All of my grandparents have passed away and J lost his grandfather two years ago.

We ate outside and the weather was beautiful! I had the kids make this little craft and we mailed one to J’s…

    On Saturday we celebrated my sister’s 40th birthday with a surprise party. The theme was “Still hot at 40.” My sister and I are almost a decade apart, so growing up I always jealous of all the fun grown-up things she got to do before me like going on dates and wearing make-up.  I kept the party pretty simple so there wasn’t too much prep. I made the easiest party favors, mod-podged some pictures on the number 40, and ordered a cake with my a picture of my then 13 year old sister’s face on it. Once the margaritas started flowing I didn’t take too many pictures, but my sister…
