My husband, George, who was my childhood friend. Grumpy was born in the same year he was, so he has this sweatshirt. PS: He isn't Grumpy.
Bill is my oldest child, hummm not so much a child anymore, unless you ask him. He will say he is a children. LOL
Heidi and Jos, and Jos will get me for posting his picture. Love you Jos, and you have to be in my list of people who mean so much to me.
Eric is my youngest son, he is a long distance truck driver and on an earlier post I told you about him making a quilt to have in his truck.

My wonderful Grandaughter Kristen, who added to my family a very special member, Mitch. I love him soooo much. He will be leaving for Iraq in May.
Sorry the picture came out so small, but this is very wonderful Haali and Mitchell. My Great Grandchildren really are great. They are talented and really great kids. They are homeschooled, and way ahead of their grade level. Good job Kristy.

Last by age but never least is my youngest Grandaughter Amanda. She first gave me my Zoe, who has me totally wrapped. She weaves her little magic on me and gets what she wants. She added Jason, who is now stationed with the Army in Quatar. We are so happy to have him with us. They are planning to relocate to Texas. We have been for many years, a total military family, so it makes it a little easier to deal with the moves.
Now you see what I mean, it is all about family.

OH! You are in trouble. Do you still dare to come here??? LOL!

A few points:
George is sometimes Grumpy. :)
Bill IS a children just like me. :)
Where are the furbabies? :)

...but it is all about the family for you. That was just the right memoir.
