Birthdays

Our granddaughter, Ashlynn Kate, is 4 today!  Her birthday party will be next week but because Aunt Stephanie is in Honduras she had some gifts mailed to my house and Ashlynn was able to open them while Aunt Stephanie watched via skype!  I just had to buy her a Hello Kitty balloon for today.  That will be the theme of her birthday party.  We had a fun morning before Mommy and Daddy took her to the park to ride her new bike!  After they went to lunch she was allowed to choose a birthday cupcake for tonight.



Hello Kitty stickers and coloring book!

HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY SWEET ASHLYNN KATE!
YOU BRING SUCH HAPPINESS TO OUR LIVES!


 
In MEMORY...
Today would be my wonderful Father-in-law's 93rd birthday!
I found this old picture of him doing his favorite thing which was playing the guitar. 
He loved playing and singing with friends and family. 
Pictured with him is Jim with our daughter Stacy and Mike, a family friend.
