Yesterday was my Grandmas birthday. She is my dad's mom. She is an awesome woman that never forgets my birthday & ALWAYS sends me a birthday card, ALWAYS handmade with a special message just for me. I, however, am not so diligent. I had every intention of sending her a card this year. Then, like my sister, school started which means I am at the elementary school & I wound up sick. Just a terrible head cold, not the flu, thank goodness. I know, no excuse, she is my very thoughtful Grandma that makes no excuses & just keeps going. So....HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!! We love you. Hope it was a great one!
Today is my oldest sons, Andy (which is my oldest child), birthday. He is 22. This time of year always brings back the same memory of him when he was a baby. Being born in the fall, in Wyoming, to an avid hunter father (Wynn), we took Andy hunting. I so needed out of the house, so we strapped him in his carseat in the truck & took off. Now, before anyone panics about what a horrible mother I am, I'm sure that will become obvious over time as the blog goes on, Andy was not a newborn by this time & we sat in the truck while his dad hunted. I can still smell the smells & hear the sounds every year around his birthday. The crunching of the leaves, the animals in the forest....he was so content the whole time & I could just think & read. But it always makes me nastalgic this time of year....every year. Anyway,
I have some pictures on my camera from yesterday, I just need to figure out how to get them from the camera, to the computer, to the blog, then I will post them. We had his birthday dinner, cake & ice cream yesterday, except being sick I forgot to get a second #2 candle, so he made do with just one candle. He is engaged to be married in November, so his fiancee, Leza, was here to help us celebrate. It was a pretty good day. So.....Happy Birthday Andy!!
And look what I did! Here is a picture...
