The beginning of February didn't happen the way we expected it, but all is well and good.
It is always fun to be home with my siblings, no matter the occasion even if it is for a funeral, when we can reminisce and remember the good times. Grandpa Randy's funeral was beautiful. Dad's talk was the best and Tony and Tanner sang beautifully.
Grandma Betty is having a difficult time, but when you have been with someone since you were 19, that's understandable. We will always remember him, his quiet nature, his words of wisdom and his kindness.
Kadyn turned 8 and got a turtle. That little one doesn't sit still long enough for a picture. Maybe on his baptism date in March I'll get one.
We made the all time consuming, but so delicious Gumbo. And mom made a most delicious blueberry pie that we shared with our friends the Metcalf's.
And we had some story time!
And some snuggle time!
Kristine and I reuniting after many, many years!
Tanner took this photo. He thought the fact that Grandma Betty and I had the same look at the same time, talking to different people was funny. He told me I wasn't allowed to delete it.
We made this from his boot, like we did for Grandpa Swensen. 7 Roses for each of us kids.
I loved that they displayed his beekeeper attire.
