It's now April, so many things have happened in the last few months, good and bad but I guess that is the flow of life. Let's begin with the December. Mickey and I got to spend a fun filled weekend in Branson with Garrett and Michelle. It started the Christmas season out great!
Christmas was wonderful as usual! My sweet Nephew and my brother and sister in law came to spend it with us.As well as my middle brother Peter
Getting to be there for Noah's very first Christmas was pretty awesome!
January brought about the new year and with it a chance to start over in the things I didn't do very well the year before :)
February brought about the biggest snow storm Oklahoma has seen in many many years, ive been around for 28 years and I had never seen anything like it, our pipes froze and busted so Mickey spent day's trying to fix them. Made harder by the fact that no one could get around anywhere so no plumbing stores were open for a few days. That was a hard few days but alas my Mickey is amazing and our friend Bill too fixed them in a timely manor lol :)
Speaking of cake, I am going to show you how totally awesome and amazing my baker and very good friend Laura Talbot from mslaurascakes.com is!
This is a draft design I made of the cake I wanted for Noah's birthday (which was one of his gifts from me and his Uncle Ippy).
March was, and will continue to be one of the hardest months our family has gone through. My middle brother who has made many bad decisions under the influence of one of the worlds biggest problems (drugs). And in the course of those decisions was given a sentence of a few years in minimum security prison. I will not be embarrassed to say I have a brother in jail, because I know that he is a great person when not under the influence. We just have to believe that God knows the plan better than us, and in the long run this time will be a learning experience for him. We will all appreciate your prayers through this difficult time. As we continue to love him and want only the best for him.
April although going through serious family issues, we are celebrating the coming of our Niece who will be here in 2 weeks! I had the pleasure of throwing my sister in law a baby shower! It was so fun and crazy since I was so far away. You should have seen my small compact car packed to the brim, with lots and lots of stuff that had to travel :) The theme was Owls and Birds!
I had a wonderful time making fun stuff for Isabella's shower! I was the first one to find out that she was gonna be a girl in December. And I am honored to say that her middle name will be Brooklyn! hehehe...
Just 2 weeks away now and I am ready to meet her!
It's now the last week in April and I have been a busy bee with graduation announcements! SOO fun, although for the younger folks graduating from High School, they make me feel old lol
I had the pleasure of creating my best friends graduation announcements for her Bachelors in Science for Nursing! I am so proud of her!
crossover! She has been wonderul so far lol
Okay thats all ive got folks. Thanks for listening while I rambled on and on about the last 5 months of my life! You guys are the best!
