Wow, has it really been that long since I have published?

Life can take its twists and turns, ups and downs, and sideways even.  Gene and I have been in Colorado for some time now.  As of this last March, it has been two years for Gene and this July it will be two years for me.  I  have made some great friends, but I still miss my family.  Gene and I have no children living with us now and so we are now empty-nesters.  I am loving it! Yes, girls I do miss you!  In February, Gene and I went to watch Whitney run in Indiana; it was so much fun.  We went for the blessing of my beautiful granddaughter, Emarie.  She is so adorable and has the longest eyelashes. 

Last December, we had a great surprise from Sarah and her two children, Bridger and Kenna.  The Thursday after Christmas, my doorbell rang at 10:30 at night.  My immediate thoughts were, "Wow, UPS, is working late."  Dani opened the door and I came to see who was there and of course my eyes started leaking immediately as I hugged and loved my grand-kids for about 5 minutes.  Then I went and hugged Sarah.  We were all laughing and we had so much fun together.  We a great surprise!

Little Ryker is not so little anymore.  He is huge and is all smiles.  He crawls now and even has taken a couple of steps.  It is so much to see him and to realize he is just one happy baby.
