Survival

It's a long story, but I am very happy to say that I survived the weekend!

We celebrated my Dad's 85th Birthday which was in March...but he was in the hospital and my siblings are scattered around the country so we have to plan these activities in advance!! 

We also celebrated my brother celebrating 40 years of working at JCPenney...he is retiring in just two days!!

Tried to get a picture of the girlz...but as you can see...they had other things on their mind...

like RUNNING!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

Busy times, but happy times when you get to spend them with loved ones. Hope the girls didn't run too far.

What wonderful celebrating all around! How special you could all be in one place to celebrate each other. As for the puppies running, I think they were so excited from all the celebration they had to get it out! So fun!

We had a great weekend; today Hunter got two shots and blood work-it was so hard to hear him cry.
