No sense trying to tell everything that has happened since I last wrote...I broke my fibia on vacation in St. Louis, MO (Troy, MO actually), in July. My dog had surgery on her other knee in early Sept. I continued having problems with my ankle until Dec. My dad went into the hospital to have part of his big toe removed (diabetes), at the same time Rick's dad went into the hospital in Erie, PA. This was sometime in Nov.
Rick's dad was very sick. He had something called mycelofibrosis so we went up for Christmas cuz his mom want to make sure everyone was together 'one last time'. Went up on Christmas day and finally got to meet my niece Evelin Jennifer!! She is adorable, big blue eyes, just like Shannon had at the same age. We came home on 27th as Rick had to work on the 28th. It was a nice short visit. We hadn't seen everyone together, EVER!! I sure am glad we went cuz he passed away on Feb.4th. Very sad!!

Shannon turned 14 on Feb 28th and Tristan's birthday is this Sunday (March 28th). He will turn 12. Time sure does fly, maybe sometime I can post their pics in here, they would most likely kill me.
Tomorrow my dad is having surgery to remove some cancer on the top of head (skin cancer).
Other than that not much happening...the kids are on Spring break all next week.
We had so much snow this past winter, it was not in inches, but feet. It started on Dec 5th with 4 or 5 inches had another 6" in mid-Jan. (don't remember the exact date). On Jan 30th we had a major (for here) storm like (8-10"),maybe more. Feb5th-6th we has 31" and then on Feb. 10th got another 18". Haven't seen anywhere near that amount of snow since I was about 11 or 12.

We are now in the process of re-doing our downstairs 1/2 bath. We are about 1/2 way done with the wall stuff, Most of the drywall is up another 'free' weekend and we will be well on our way to finishing. Then I will post the before and after pics!!

I have starting the quilting thing again after taking about a six month break. Looking forward to doing some projects, even small ones.

Blessings to you and yours,
