ABOUT FAMILY

Happy 19th Anniversary Rick!

19 years ago today @ 2:00pm I married my best friend. We were married at the church I grew up in. 
 
Two years prior to that date we met, for the first time.  A mutual friend, Gary & his wife Chris set us up on a blind date.  We met at their house.  Our first meeting wasn't all that exciting.  I remember chatting and serving up ice cream for everyone. After a few hours Gary & Chris kicked us out of their house and we went our seperate ways.  I thought Rick was nice but he didn't ask me out so I assumed nothing was there.

Happy Birthday Allisyn!

On March 27th, 14 years ago today @ 3:00pm a little girl was born.  She weighed in at 5lbs 11oz. She had a tiny bit of hair that was blonde and no visible eyebrows.  She came out very alert and had pretty blue eyes. 
 
 
Still in the hospital.. The 4 generations of girls.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It seems like just yesterday we were planning the nursery for our new baby. It is hard to believe how fast time goes by.  Sometimes I long for when she was little and I could pick her up and we would play games or sing silly songs.

Memories with my brother.

Growing up in a southern California high desert, there isn't much to do.  My younger brother and I would spend our days outside riding bikes, playing in the dirt or wasting water from the hose.  We spent a lot of time making mud.  We would also dig holes and make little bridges for his toy trucks to go through.  I would make mud pies and we would leave them out for a few days until they hardened from the desert sun.  We dug a lot of holes.  One day we dug a hole so big (I think it was 1 1/2 feet) we thought we had dug to China!

Christmas Past

 
The Cardboard Santa
 
We had our stockings hung by the chimney with care.  Mine was red & white checked, my mom made it out of flannel material when I was little.  I forget what my brothers looked like, it was probably blue.  When I was about 9 and my brother 7 we had a large piece of cardboard. My dad drew a Santa face  and a few other things on it. (My dad has a hidden talent) we loved that picture of Santa and displayed that big piece of cardboard for all to see.

Family Road Trips

For as far back as I can remember my parents would take us on a trip 2000 miles away to Cincinnati every other year to visit family. We always went in July when us kids were out of school and my parents could take time off of work. Each trip had something memorable about it.  I only remember the ones when I was a teenager. 
 
My brother (who is 2 years younger) and I had to share the back seat of the pontiac hatchback. One time my parents put the hatchback down and I slept, literally all the way there, 5 days of driving 2000 miles.

My father-in-law

Ray & Judy at a birthday dinner for him.With Christmas just around the corner I think we all start thinking of people we love and people we have also lost.  I was thinking about my father in law, Ray who passed away almost 8 years ago now.  I can't believe it has been that long. I loved my father in law.  He was a special man who loved to tell stories. He worked for IBM and took an early retirement.  I only knew him for about 11 years before he passed but I enjoyed those moments.  He knew me when I went through beauty school and I learned how to trim a beard by practicing on him.

I miss my grandma.

 
Cindy & her grandma
I miss my grandma, my mom's mother. lately she has been showing up in my dreams and it is nice to see her again.  She would have been 100 years old this past October 20th.  She passed December of 2007, when she was 97. 
 
 
 
My grandma (Lois) was a very interesting person.  Ever since I was a little girl I loved to sit and listen to her stories of how life was.  She grew up in New York and was an only child. She loved to dance and was very popular when she was a young lady.
