Memories of 2007

We just want to take a minute to reflect on the wonderful year we have had.

Although 2007 started with some sorrow, as our brother & sister lost their best friend Jesse to a violent car accident, he may be missed but will never be forgotten. Dad also went to WI to witness the scattering of his cousin's ashes below his favorite tree stand. A toast was held high in remembrance of JC.

We can all take comfort in the fact we know they are looking down on us, keeping us safe as our guardian angels..

We also have many, many good memories .....

Aly got married and is expecting. Mom spent a wonderful week on the farm with Grandpa, Grandma and her brothers.. That was a week of hard work preparing for an auction but many nights were spent reminiscing childhood memories and a few beers had by all. Dad chased deer through the woods, didn't catch any but that is because he runs on two legs not four legs.

Oh, and WHO could forget that horrible day when mom & dad brought me, Louie. Just kidding, well, he is asleep at the moment, so ask me later when he isn't sleeping.

In all reality, the adoption of Louie was truly a blessing for us .........

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, wishing everyone a great 2008 !!!!

Hi Gus, Louie and Gus & Louie's mama! Happy almost-New Year to you. Thank you for your nice comments on my blog - they always make me smile. Did you just get the Canon camera or have you had it for a while? I'm finding it a bit of a transition challenge to move from my mini digital over to this new Nikon. It feels like it takes me days to set it up for a picture, where with my old one, I just whipped it out and snapped away! :-)
You asked me to send more pictures of my other critters...other than Roxy and our bunny, Walter, I don't have any yet! The new critters will come once we've moved to our property at the end of January. Right now, I'm still a country gal living in our city house! :-) How fun it must've been to grow up on a farm in Wisconsin - I'll bet there are some stories there to tell!
