Creating Fun & Celebration

So today was a bit out of the ordinary - It was early release day for the elementary & middle schools for conferences and my friend Candace (a second grade teacher) asked me if I would watch her two precious kids - well Yes!  Since we're no longer at the elementary school I miss my regular visits with this amazing family so we were all delighted to have them over for some fun!  A few things we created - songs on the drums, songs on the guitar, computer games, and silly songs.  Afterwards we all went out to help another couple of special friends celebrate their 12th birthday.

My friend Lisbeth with her girls Jazlyn & Jocelyn!  Happy 12th birthday!!

Today is also my Nanny's 86th birthday!  Nanny lives in Center, Tx in the log home my Papa built for her when he retired.  They have a love story for the ages and were married for over 50 years when my papa died.  In the picture below Nanny is a young woman in love holding the photo of her sweetheart who is off at war world II - my papa.  I have some other amazing photos I will scan in one day and dedicate a whole blog to their love story.  In the meantime - I spoke with my Nanny today - my Aunt Ann and Uncle Sam were in town and taking her out to eat for her birthday.  She was excited about how many calls she had gotten today and got a little happy teary.  Nanny loves having her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren around and was asking how soon she would get to see us.  

I love you Nanny & I'm so glad you were born!!!
