To my Pop

My sweet Pop Richard passed away on April 12th, 2010. He was such a wonderful grandfather and friend to me. Pop was a very funny man. He always made you laugh at life. Out of all the grandchildren, I spent the most time with him because he would babysit me when I was a child. Many hours were spent with him as he sang silly songs. We would eat Ritz's crackers. He always had stains on his ties and make new ones when we would go out to eat. When I was younger he smoked a pipe. I would always hide his tobacco. He would get so mad, when he couldn't find it. When I was in elementary school I would go to his home before school and eat breakfast. I loved spending those morning with him and my Grandma Jan. School just seem to go better when we had breakfast together. He always supported us, even if he didn't agree or understand. He loved my husband and thought the world of my sweet Charlotte.
I'm so grateful to have had such a loving grandfather. The things I'll miss most is hearing his voice calling me "Miss Helen" and his soft white hair. I loved playing with it. He will be greatly missed by all of his friends, and family. The wonderful thing is, I know I will see him again and that brings me peace.
So here's to to you, Pop; my button collecting, bag folding, treat eating, and banana head friend, I'll miss you. I'll keep your legacy going by treating others with kindness, putting family first and laughing when ever I can. Love you.

Ode to Charlotte Mae!

My sweet little Charlotte is two today! What a year it has been! Charlotte has changed so much, both physically and developmentally. Both Scott and I are in awe of her everyday. Each day she is doing something new and making us laugh with her personality. Here are some picture's of this past year!

Oh sweet big girl how we love you! You make us laugh, you make us grin, and bring us pure joy. We are excited for this coming year to watch you grow and learn. Thanks Miss Mae for being ours.
We love you!
Mom and Dad

Scott's New Website...

I'm really excited to announce that I finally have a full-fledged website that's up and running. You can find it at The site has a blog on it so I won't be using anymore. If you're one of the lovely people who has bookmarked my blog, or put it in your link list or something like that (first of all, thank you so much for doing that, but) please replace that link with a new link to

I'm super excited about this site. I think it will allow me to promote myself a little better and it's definitely a more professional way to get my name out there. Thank you again to all of you who follow and support me in my little dream. I hope you like the new site!
