And life goes on

It has been a long week and there are still many details to take care of but life does go on. In the past week, as Grammy passed on, there was one new great-grandchild born and one new great-great grandchild.

And today is Brian's birthday. I know it is late in the day but I didn't want to let it get by without sending a happy birthday! 
I still have pictures that I haven't downloaded yet along with some other people took while we had family together and I am waiting on those to be sent.
Anyway - Happy Birthday Brian. I know it isn't what you were hoping for but sometimes life just gets in the way when we think we have it all figured out. 
Love you with all my heart.

The only thing hubby wanted for his birthday this year was to spend it with his mother. She has been in a nursing home 4 hours away for the past month but he took the day off and made the drive up to see her.

This is a picture of them on his birthday last week.
She passed away early yesterday morning. It is always somewhat of a shock even when you know it is coming, but she is no longer in pain and his parents are reunited in Heaven. I know he takes comfort in that knowledge.
They raised him up to be a fine man and a wonderful husband and father, and for that, I am grateful.

and happy Friday to ya!
Finished up this little wall hanging just in time to put it on the front door for a couple of weeks before I put up the fall one.
It's been raining here for a couple of days. Yesterday it was pretty much all day and it is still raining. Rain gauge marks 5 inches but probably actually holds at least another inch and it was over-flowing before lunch yesterday. The grass is so high Nicholas just about gets lost when he goes out! I guess I should set out a bucket and catch some water for the plants on the porch - they are looking pretty parched.
Hope you have a great weekend!
