One year ago August 1st my son and my daughter in law went on vacation and brought back Allison. Allison is my first grandchild and was born about 6 weeks early, she was so very tiny I was afraid that she would break. She is now an independent little princess who knows that she is adored by all and rules her subjects with a smile. She looked so much like her pretty mama when she was little but now she is all her daddy. Sydni jokingly calls her JJ for Joshua junior and she is a mini-me! Her birthday was held at her granny B's and her guests dinned on cotton candy, cupcakes, popcorn, slushy drinks, cookies and fruit. Her great-great grandma was there as well as aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, family friends and relatives. Her papa Stan and I got her a rocking princess carriage and I think that I was more excited than she was. So to my son and daughter-in-law my eternal thanks for the wonderful gift of Allison. She gives me hope and reminds me what innocence is and how precious that is. And to Allison: Happy birthday precious girl and many many many more!
I have been a nurse for 40 years and have the sore feet to prove it. I am married(for 35 years) to Stanley and have two children: Rebekah(married to Shane) who is mother to Winston and the twins Patton and Aster and Joshua who is daddy to Aries and Allison. My daughter is a nurse practitioner and my son works in the hospitality field. We have three dogs who rule the roost in our home! I started writing my blog to keep family informed about my daughter's wedding and have kept it up with political comments, things that irritate me, and just whatever strikes my fancy. I have a life filled with work, joy and sometimes sadness. I hope that in reading my blog you can laugh at what life leads my way and empathize with the rare sorrow that happens.
