You don't hear from me (Fred) on this site very often. I starteded this blog about a year ago, but it's been Renee that's kept it up and running. But tomorrow is a very special day for us, so Honey, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR OUR 35 YEARS TOGETHER. I love you sweetie. I hope you have a GREAT day. I'm looking forward to our weekend away together next week.

August Birthdays

Last night we had a birthday party for Fred and Tori. They both have birthdays in August. Fred grilled burgers; Lesa made her famous " cowboy beans" and peach salad; I made the favorite desserts for the birthday honorees - chocolate cheesecake for Fred and hot fudge cake for Tori. We had a good time visiting and playing on the Wii. We were very pleased that mom and dad ( aka Nana and Grandad) got to come and that she got a good report from the doctor this week. All the siblings ( except Dan and Tami ) spent the night and this morning Beulah fixed breakfast for everyone. It was such a wonderful evening and morning. I am so humbled that God has blessed me so much with my family. They are all the greatest - the parents. the mother-in-law, the kids and kids in laws, the grandkids - not to mention the best husband ever! I get choked up just thinking about them. Here are some pictures from the night.

Jack is having a good time!
