Happy Father’s Day – 2011

Happy Father’s Day to the most special fathers in my life…….

Dad, Mark and Corey, joined by Zachary…….

Here’s a text Mark sent to us all after the party – this sums it all up……

“I would like to thank you all for a great fathers day!!!  Sure presents are great, but the best part is you all together!  Thanks for being a great family Love Dad/Mark”

MORE Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Happy Mother’s Day to ME!  Mark and I moved the trellis.  We are letting the back yard grow into a woods – it already looks so much different from this picture – it has grown very much already.  We also planted a little garden on each side of the trellis and evergreens for the frontage of the little forest.

All the way in back you can see the forest I played in as a child.  What fun we had back there.

Here is Corey with the roses he planted to grow up the trellis – thanks Corey!

Two of the highlights of my life

I have a great life.  I have a husband who adores me – he tells me so every day.

I am blessed to have two beautiful, wonderful sons who have given me one more son and a daughter.

On top of that, I have Zachary, who brings us joy every day.

That being said…….these two little guys were and continue to be two of the highlights of my life…….I love you kids…….

Meatloaf anybody?

Corey requested cold meatloaf for Easter lunch.  So……as my kids are spoiled with motherly love, whether they like it or not, he will get cold meatloaf for Easter lunch.  However, Mark insisted that HE make meatloaf, even though he rarely cooks and has never made meatloaf.

Here is his creation, on a plate ready to be covered and put in the fridge for Easter lunch…..

He remembers watching his Grandma make meatloaf and he knows basically what I put in meatloaf from watching me, so he just put in what he thought.  When we went to bed last night, we sampled it.  And we sampled some more.  And more.  It is darn good.

Corey………..we hope you enjoy it!!!!
