An Amazing Year!

Hello Dear Family,

I take pictures, it is what I do. When God blesses you with the most beautiful family your heart could ever imagine, you want to capture every single moment you share, so that it lasts forever. This has been an amazing year. So many blessings for our family. I am profoundly thankful that I have been able to record our special moments for us to look back on and celebrate forever. Thank you family, for making this year, 2014, so incredibly special. I love you all with all my heart, and I look forward to a healthy, happy, prosperous and "freaking amazing" 2015! 

I love you Jack, Garrett, Brandon, Amber, Casey, Blake, Cooper, Penny, Dozer, Supra, Ducati, Rayray, and Miss Lilly...the most awesome family on the planet. :) And get your smiles ready...my camera is charged and ready to capture every special moment of the coming new year. *CHEESE* 

Love,
mom :)


Our Christmas, 2014...


Our year in review...and an awesome year at that.  :)
Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

December 9, 2014 - Family Fun Night

Hello Dear Family,

I enjoyed an awesome family night last night, with grandson Cooper, and granddaughter Penny. They came to spend the evening with me while mommy and daddy went to visit Santa.

We decorated the Christmas tree, watched movies, and had fun with uncle Blake and uncle Garrett.

It was an awesome visit!

I am blessed with the most amazing sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law, and the most brilliant, beautiful, adorable grandchildren on the planet.  <3









Peace.

Good-Bye November!

Hello Dear Family,

November has been an awesome month.  The weather was lovely, we had many blessing, and family is going strong up in here.  That is always a good thing.

I prepared the last of the turkey today, and it came out pretty delicious.

Some Turkey Tetrazzini for dinner...

 ...caramelized pears and blueberries over vanilla ice cream for desert.
I really should stop playing with my food.  I do love photographing it though.  :)

Miss Lilly and I are officially in a turkey coma.  You can read all about it in her blog.  The Diva Will See You Now.


Good-Bye to November!
Welcome to December.

Have a great Monday planet!

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello Dear Family,

"Mom, there is no way! The dogs will destroy the turkey. They will eat Blake. This will be a disaster!" 

Oh ye of little faith. (If mama wants a picture, mama gets her picture.) Every now and then we need a Non-Traditional Holiday photo. 

The dogs were great...and...The turkey is ready!

Happy Thanksgiving!!



Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.

Peace.

Happy Birthday in Heaven!

Hello Dear Family,

Forget the pumpkin pie. Tonight I made some pumpkin/pineapple empanadas, in honor of my mom's birthday. To this day I can not get the crust as crumbly and amazing as mom, but they came out delicious just the same. I think she would be proud of me.  

Next project, tackling mom's delicious orange slice cake recipe. She made orange slice cake every holiday season. If only I had the courage to try to make her tamales! Some day.  

Happy Birthday in heaven mom!  <3




Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.

Peace.

The Braces are Off!

Hello Dear Family,

November 24, 2014, Who's got the goofiest, most amazing smile on the planet?  My son Casey does!

He stopped by to see me this afternoon, just after his final orthodontist appointment.  Braces are off!!!

This journey started September 20, 2012.  Since then he has had his palate expanded, braces, and upper jaw separated and pushed forward, lower jaw broken and moved back, and mouth wired closed for recovery.  Wow, what a journey!  He has lost some weight, and still has numbness on his lips, be he is doing so well.  Thank you GOD, and thank you to the surgeon, orthodontist, and their amazing staff, for all that they have done for him. <3

He is still figuring out how to do it...but Casey smiles now.  :')

His before and after photo...



God is good.  :)

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

Snow Day Fun!

Hello Dear Family,

This is why I have so much grey hair...and this is why Blake thinks his big brother Garrett is the coolest dude on the planet.

The cost of gas for a ride like this in a huge Ford F250...$10 

The cost of two completely shredded sleds...$30.00 

The look on Blake's face as he was being dragged down the street...Priceless!





Boys! Gotta love em. 

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.
