It takes quite a man

To take a child that isn't his flesh and blood, and give him your last name.

Even if that is all you do, that's quite a lot.

RIP Randy. You were obviously loved by so very many. Thanks for giving Gerrod your name.

I couldn't post last night

We recieved some very sad news. Gerrod's dad, Randy Andresen, had a heart attack and died yesterday.

I am still in shock, poor Gerrod. Just loosing his mom such a short time ago was hard enough, but this now is just so hard.

I saw a boom truck in town yesterday (Gerrod's dad owned as sign company and did work all around here at times) and I looked to see if it was his.

And I thought. What's going to happen to the business when Randy passes? None of the boys will want it.

And then I thought, I need to call them. I need to get a relationship between him and the kids. They should know him.

And he died.

Don't hold back folks. Make those calls, make the effort, and do it now.

Before you are shocked into the what ifs.

Two years ago

I survived a horrible wreck. I can't get the pictures to upload right this second, but I will try.

By all accounts, I should not have.

Take a minute today to love and hug the people you surround yourself with.

Wear your seatbelt.

Get your airbags checked (mine did not go off)

Become an organ donor.

And thank God for every day you are here!

Happy Birthday


It's my birthday! I can't believe it! It amazes me every year! I do not feel as old as I am, not even by a long shot! I really do still feel like a teenager (well, mentally, physically, not as much)

I have had a great day, and a great weekend! Thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday, and the nice presents, and cards, and visitors!

What a nice nice day!

It's Sunday

I need to get ready for church.

Sarah is going with us! She's pretty awesome.

Well, so is Chris.

They brought wonderful gifts for the kids for Christmas yesterday.

They just are amazing.

My kids are so lucky to have them in their lives. Not the presents or anything like that, but


They play with them, laugh at them, cuddle them, just love them.

They are really Aunt Sarah and Uncle Chris

And my kids are very blessed for that!!

So far

So behind.

But having a great time with Chris and Sarah!!

We went bowling yesterday! WOW!


But we had SOOOOO much fun!

TY used the force

Spencer did this dance kinda thing, also a "pray to ALLAH" roll.

Olivia just hoped for the best.

But it was an absolute riot!
