Happy Birthday Grandma

Well today is my birthday, but that’s not really what this post will be about. Today I’m going to write about my wonderful and awesome great grandma. You see today is her birthday too. We shared the same birthday for 15 years and I just loved it. We would always celebrate them together and it made my birthday wonderful.

She passed away 21 years ago next month and I miss her so much. Each year on my birthday I think of her and how much fun we had together. I wish we could still be together and celebrate those birthdays together. Instead I celebrate them here and she celebrates them in heaven. We will be together again and have the ability to share them again and I look forward to that day.

So today I celebrate my birthday with my wonderful husband and two great boys and my family; all the while thinking about grandma. I know she’s looking down on me and she sees everything I’ve done and what I’ve accomplished in life. She sees how wonderful my family is and how much I love them. She sees what I’ve accomplished with my business and how much I love it. She sees the beautiful home my husband has provided for us and the wonderful truck he allows me to drive even though it was supposed to be his. Love you Kevey!!!!

Today I celebrate my birthday with all of my family and friends. I get to enjoy the attention and let me tell you what I love every minute of it. LOL But who wouldn’t? HaHaHa

I love you grandma! Happy birthday.

Here are some wonderful pictures of me and Grandma.

Tell me Thursday – June 30

Yesterday I posted a picture of our cat, Piper in the window seal. She loves the window seal and actually things it belongs to her. If you put something up there within seconds of her noticing it whatever you put there will be on the floor. It doesn’t matter if it’s a small thing and not in her way or if it’s big and takes up a lot of space, if it’s there you better expect it to be on the floor.

While I never thought a cat would control the house, I now know I do and it’s funny at times, but also frustrating. O’well, it is what it is and that’s ok. I still love her anyway. LOL

Just in case you missed the picture, here it is again.

Wordless Wednesday – June 29

Gone Fishin’

My boys have gone fishing several times since they were little, but never have caught anything, but that all changed over the Father’s Day weekend. You see Kevin took Thursday off and took the boys to the lake really early in the morning. They fished from 5:30 am until about 11 am with no avail. They decided to go out again on Friday morning and started around 5 am with still no fish to be had.

We had decided if they could find a good spot we’d stay the weekend and that’s exactly what we did. They found the perfect spot so we were there for the weekend. They fished on and off on Friday afternoon, then again on Saturday morning and part of the afternoon again. Still there were no fish for them to catch. At this point they were pretty sure there was on three fish in the lake. LOL

Saturday evening rolled around and things were about to change and it was definitely for the better. We were told the best time to fish was in the late night hours, so we decided to give it a try. Shortly before midnight this is what happened.

Shortly after midnight, this is what happened.

So as you can see it all paid off and the boys were able to get their fish. Here are the details.

Chris named his fish Richard. He weighed in at 16 oz and he was 1 foot, 6 inches.

Josh named his fish Billy Bob. He weighed in at 14 ½ oz and he was 1 foot, 2 inches.

The boys were so happy that they were able to catch the fish. They followed the entire process to the end and were happy to do it.

I’ll tell you what, Kevin and I are so proud of our boys. They wanted to catch a fish so bad and it was awesome to watch it happen.

Here are some more pictures of our Father’s Day weekend camping adventure.

This is a picture of Kevin and the boys fishing on Friday evening.
