Happy Thanksgiving

Sunday, November 29, 2009

We were very blessed to have a fabulous Thanksgiving - the weather could not have been better.  We enjoyed the backyard patio, relatives from out of state, and great food.  Thanksgiving is often thought of as a holiday, but really, it is a way of life for those of us who recognize our blessings.

Tee time in heaven for Vince

Sunday, November 15, 2009
Today our dear friend (Garrett's Poppa) passed away.  Vince was such a gentle soul, who was always there for everyone.
We like to say that blessings are meant to be shared and Vince was always willing to share his.  We feel very blessed to of had him in our lives.
 This is my favorite picture of Vince  & Garrett.

Vince loved to golf and I am sure he has a game going on right now with Ivan's father in heaven.
  We love you Vince!  

Life in the cul de sac

Monday, November 2, 2009
I have never been a cul de sac fan.   When my girlfriend moved into one 10 years ago, I would always complain that there was never any parking for her parties.  Well, 3 years ago, a house across from her went up for sale, and guess where we live now!   Something I did not initially recognize was how great the cul de sac is for the kids to play hide'n'seek, ride bikes and just "be kids".   I also have learned how great a cul de sac is to socialize with the neighbors.  Halloween this year was a blast.  After some trick'or'treating, we settled into our cul de sac with some neighbors and friends to hand out candy and watch the kids play. We met lots of families who stopped by to visit, eat and have their kids join in.  Living in a cul de sac has turned out to be a real blessing.
