Nice Surprise

I won a $10 gift certificate over at http://twopeasinabucket.com! I entered their Birthday Trivia contest and my number was chosen. I already did my shopping. Can't wait to get my new things.
Thanks twopeas!

Gone but never forgotten


It was a difficult two days. One of the sad parts is the fact the DH and his 2 bothers and sister were all together for the first time in probably 15 years. There was an incredible amount of laughter mixed in with the tears. I truly wish Mike's mom could have seen it. I am SO glad both of my kids came. Rob had never been to a funeral and Jen had only attended one back in 9th grade. I was surprised at the depth of emotions that I saw in each of them. It was difficult to come home after such a short time there. Mom was always impressed with Mike's gardening skills and she happily took home fresh green peppers from the garden last time they were here. I love this photo of the two of them.

You will be Missed

We received news today that my mother in law passed away. My heart is aching for my father in law, my husband and his brothers and sister. She was a very special lady.

White Pine Stampede







Yesterday was the White Pine Stampede - a point to point Cross Country Ski race which my husband and brother in law take part in. Last year my husband recruited 2 women from work to join us. This year another co worked joined the fun too. It was a warm day for northern Michigan - 43! Three of us were racer chasers - driving to various points to take pics of our skiiers. After the race we enjoy our annual celebration lunch at Lulu's in Bellair. A great time was had by all!

Superbowl Sunday







I am still full! We enjoyed a day filled with munchies and appetizers. It was fun to have Rob home too. The game was a close one and I was happy to see Pittsburgh win. Went to college close to there so they were my favorite. Bandit was ready to watch those 3d commercials!
