|My mom and dad still live here|
I went for walks with my mom
|Our rental car and the back door entrance|
|It is on a corner this is the backyard|
|a small garden that is asleep for the winter|
|I love to sit here in the nicer months but I don't get out here that often|
|The Cherry tree has to be cut down and all the grandchildren are sad. Many memories were made here|
|The front door entrance|
|The garage and neighbors pitbull dogs|
We went to Washington State for the month of November to visit family. While we were their My dad had cancer surgery for a rare cancer and there is no cure. I will miss this place even though I don't get back home that often it will always be home to me. My children have many fond memories here. If and when God decides he needs my dad more than we do my mom will have to move and we will no longer be able to visit here. I have these last pictures for my memory book and I am sure I will look at them often and think of my parents. I was lucky to be born into a family who love God and raised me to love God also.
I will be making new memories in our new home in Minnesota with our grandchildren. I hope I can do as good a job as my mom did with my children.
I LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD

Our daughter Michelle had a baby boy on December 21, she was induced, she was a little overdue. Luke Paul born at 11:45 weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces and about 22 inches so either he will be tall or he really was going to be a big baby. This makes grandchild number 8 for us she has 4 of them 2 girls and now 2 boys. Our son Michael has one girl and one boy and our daughter Mary has one boy and one girl. This makes up a nice family , we think. Alyssa is in the background of the last picture and then there is Madelyn(Maddie) Carter and baby Luke.
We have been blessed.
Thanks for visiting and please join as a friend if you like to visit often.

THIS IS MY CHILDHOOD HOME
We just came back from a visit and are all moved in to our new home, While on our trip visiting with my parents my dad had cancer surgery for a very rare and aggressive cancer. They were able to get all the tumor but it has a high rate of return . My pray for him is that God will spare him from pain and suffering that will come as he nears the end. It will be a challenging time for my sisters who help care for him and my mother.
My mother is diabetic and will be unable to stay in her home. My husband and I have gone through this with his parents a few years ago. It is very difficult but what God brings to you He will pull you through, Faith is very important at these times to help us cope and grieve . I will post pics soon I have been very sick and moving was hard. I hope to get a little rest before Christmas. See you soon!
