Long Time! :)

It has been so long since I sat to blog!!  My life has been a whirlwind of activity in this month.  Yesterday my hubby and I took our son to the airport after spending a little over 2 weeks with him.  It was a wonderful visit and we so enjoyed just soaking up the family time with him.  It was a little sad to hug good bye.. 


My sister in law is still here visiting with us along with my niece.  We are loving their visit!!  They will be leaving tomorrow and I know it will be another sad hug goodbye..  but we are all left with wonderful memories of time spent together.


My bil was married last Saturday in a beautiful wedding ceremony.  It was touching and sweet.  My son was the best man and looked so handsome in his military dress uniform. 


We also attended my daughter Emily’s GED graduation ceremony on Saturday morning and then made a mad rush to the church for the wedding right afterwards…  talk about a very full day!


So if you were wondering what happened to me..  now you can see why I have not been on here!    My life has been very full.  My sil and niece leave tomorrow and then it is time to get my house back in order and get life back in order.


Here are a few pics to share..


Seven of my 8 kids ..  this was taken on a trip to the Oregon coast
