Our Christmas 2010

The pictures are all together from adan's christmas party at her daycare to the christmas play at our church, and then christmas morning. You may notice in the pictures that adan gets a lot of dresses, and yes she did!
She is very girly and absolutely loves dresses and would wear them everyday if I allowed it. As you can see my children are getting very much bigger, they have not come up with a remedy for that one yet =) I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas and has a very happy new year!!!

Our losses July 2010

Well as some of you may all ready know on July 19,2010 My family faced an unexpected tragedy. My brother-in-law Randy Turnbill passed away of a massive heart attack at the young age of 31. His and my sister's relationship was shared for 8 years and 3 beautiful boys age right now of 7,6, and 3 lost their daddy.I have known Randy since I was a mere child when he came into our lives thru my eldest sister Kathy.I have several memories from my childhood on up of him. I hold them very near and dear to my heart.
Randy was a man that was as hard headed as they came, very set in his old fashioned ways. You could confide anything in him and never have a worry about it getting any further. He was a macho man I don't think anybody could have ever gotten the better of him in a fight,lol. I know they didn't when he was on this earth anyways.
He was the youngest of 7 boys I guess that could explain his toughness. But he would give the shirt off his back to anyone. He had a kind heart, regardless of his actions. He was an a+ dad to those boys he loved them and wanted each and everyone of them.
I was always told throughout my entire life that you never know when death will come knocking at your door, I always knew that to be true but this really set the reality in on me. I will always cherish the time I have had with him, he was an in law but in my feelings he was a brother with or without the same blood line.

Adan Kay is 3!!!!

I think I am caught up now,lol. On september 2, 2010 Adan had her 3rd birthday. So sad for mommy to see her grow up she is absolutely gorgeous and soooo mean compared to her brother. I am so grateful for the blessing of this this little girl. When my children smile, well I smile hence the song on the montage. A lot of the family turned out to celebrate with us on the 4th of september at the roane county park. It was a butterfly themed party.Thanks for viewing my blog, and keeping updated on my family

Birthdays Of July

Well on July 15th I had my 27th birthday. On July 27th My sister amanda had her 30th birthday. (yea I know right after her husband died :() We tried our best to have good ones, our parents and my husband was there trying to make it a bright day amongst all the tragedy. So Happy birthday to us !!!!

My wonderful Mamaw

On july 5, 2010 my dear sweet mamaw pass passed away and went home to be with our heavenly father and loved ones that have left before us. I have spoken on here before of her horrible disease. She suffered from alzhiemer's, she fought the good fight tho. In her stubborness I am sure that is what made her last so long. Just last year she suffered from double pneumonia on take of a massive stroke and the family was called in saying she would not make it thru the next 24 hours. But..... she did and suffered from pnuuemonia again later on in the year.
The thing is that God takes you out of this world when it is your time, and we have to accept it as part of his plan and ask for his comfort.
I was practically around this woman my entire childhood our families did everything together. We went on vacation every year together, spent every church service together. I am so grateful to have such a close family. We are all attached to each other's hips. All though this drives my husband crazy sometimes I would not have it any other way.
This was my last actual grandparent that was living. I still have a step papaw tho, whom I love very much and he is not in good health either.I know my mamaw is in a much better place. She suffered so much from this ugly disease, I just hope they can find a cure for this disease along with many others that are so tragic.

Family zoo trip May 12, 2010

We went to the zoo in May with Austin for his kindergarten school trip. We had a really good time, of course. My parents came, along with my sister, her husband and 2 of her children. (the oldest was in 1st grade and could not come) My dear friend Anita from work came along too, and took all of these pictures and a ton more that I did not put on here because you would be watching it for a while. I love her to death, she has been there for me thru some rough times. Family really matters and this day has a very special place in my heart because it was the last time I would make a trip with my brother-in-law and spend so much time with him watching him with his kids and seeing his love for his family. So I hope you enjoy the pictures, we all had such a good time that day.
