Green so far for x-mas in Michigan

Just wanted to share.  No snow a day before x-mas eve.  Not complaining.  Love the green and lack of snow on my shed, not scraping ice off of my car and snow off of Nikki's car.  In addition, my favorite, NO ICE DAMS on my roof.  Still have water stains on my garage ceiling from last year.  Hopefully, I continue to not have to invest in someone to get rid of the ice dams, that may still come.  Liking  the view for now in Michigan and feeling lucky and grateful for what we have now.

Feel sorry for my relatives in Minnesota and still jealous of the warm wonderful that my parents have in Florida right now.  Merry x-mas to all my family!!!!!!!!

This time it is for Adam

I know I already did this one, but I like it and I have one more cousin getting married only a month before what would be a 20yr. wedding anniversary if Ted where here.  I am looking forward to sharing this big time in your life with you and have enjoyed watching you grow up.  You where all just kids on my big day and now all grown up.  The time has flown and you have all become such wonderful adults and have done well with your lives.  Love you Adam and getting excited to see you all again.

In honor of my cousin Emily's wedding, a trip back in time. 20 years ago to my wedding 1994

  I just wanted to share a special day from the past.  Congratulations Emily.  I am sooo happy for you.  I am so glad that I get to share one of the happiest days of your life with you , as you did with me all those years ago.  Truly one of the happiest days of my life.   I wish Ted could be there with me to share in your day.  I will have him there with me in my heart as you start another chapter of your life.  I have enjoyed watching you grow up.  Love you Emily.  You are one of this family's miracles.

Nikki and her roommate Merideth in the meatlocker

I wasn't able to fix the eye thing that is going on with Nikki's eyes.  My mom is much better at that.  I still thought I would let the family see Nikki's roommate.  She is a nice kid.  Life is not perfect, mostly because of the lack of space.  You can see each girl next to their bed.  The other side of the bed is all the bigger the room is.  Also, maybe 7 or 8 steps from the door to the beginning of the armoir, which is at the end of the bed.  Not a whole lot of room.  She is surviving and actually handling the new change well.

Family Days at GVSU 2013

Nikki standing outside one of the many tents that were part of the rennesiance days at the college.
The college band heading out to the football game as we were heading out to see the comedian Gallagher at the local high school.
The COTU reluctantly agreed to let me take this picture before we went into the high school for the show.
Waiting for the show to begin.
I was using my phone, so not the best pictures, but he told us he is 67 and that if he can pull off a two hour show that all other comedians should keep up.  He was just as funny as in his younger days.  Still did the sledgeomatic and had everyone in tears.  As funny as he ever was and still kept the humor relevant to today.  Good for him.  The COTU's enjoyed the humor even though his hayday was before either one was born.  A good time had by all.  Glad to have shared this with my awesome daughter!
