Dad’s 90th Birthday!

You all have been so precious about my dad's sickness with your thoughts and prayers on getting him well. We are realizing it's going to be a slower process than we have hoped and even though he has made progress each week, it's still slow going and day to day has its ups and downs. We never dreamed that his 90th birthday would be spent in a rehab trying to get well again, but it has turned out … [Read more...]

Update on Dad: Upward!

It's been a week of ups and downs with dad, but I'm happy to say right now we are on an upswing. He's been here in the rehab center almost 2 weeks, 2 weeks tomorrow in fact, which is also his 90th birthday.  July 14, 1927 was a good day for our family, when this little red headed baby boy was born into the world.

Daddy’s Garden This Year

He's been at it again.  Planting that garden of his.  This year, we all voted and decided that it was time for Daddy to quit planting his mountain garden and he finally realized he should listen to us (what choice did he have with 4 women voicing their opinions?).  His girls know best and he realizes we only want what is best for him and any man turning 90 in July should really only have one … [Read more...]

Our Family Easter 2017

Every holiday gets a little more precious as we watch our parents age.  Easter is no exception and this year we enjoyed a wonderful family time with our parents.  Lauren was home for the weekend and it was all too short, but we packed a lot of fun in those 3 days with our girls.  Easter traditions of egg hunts are so much fun and Parker, at 3 years old now, was primed for getting into the … [Read more...]
