All the things to be thankful for

by Kay~Kacey on 11/24/2010

As Thanksgiving approaches I stop and give thanks for all the many blessings in my life. My family and friends. The good times.

Life throws us curves, but we find the strength to move through them and get to the other side. (albeit, sometimes with a bit of ranting and a glass or so of wine.)

I am so thankful for the joy these boys bring me. (even if sometimes they take turns making me :hairpull:) (yes, I’m talking about you!) :heart:

I’m also extremely happy to have another female in the family! And I adore her:

And I will so miss the ones not coming into town for Thanksgiving this year:

and these two:

and, last but certainly not least, I’m so thankful to be married to this man. My best friend. He completes me. :heart:

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with lots of good times. Either a quiet dinner or a rowdy crowd like ours. I’m also thankful for all of you, my blogging friends. I’ll see back hereĀ  on the blog on Monday. Stay safe.

Some of my Favorite People

by Kay~Kacey on 6/22/2010

I know I’m always sharing how much I adore SuperGuy and my boys…but I wanted to share a few other special people in my life. The wedding was a perfect time to be surrounded by them…and I’m feeling sappy and emotional…so here they are, in no particular order.

My Parents.

I know. They are too adorable, aren’t they? They are in their *cough* 80’s and still having fun, enjoying their family…and still happily in love after 58 years of marriage. I owe them so much. Ever a constant in my life. I love you.

Here are my two very best friends in life.

Janice and Sue. I’m not sure I would be as sane as I am…if I am…without these two women. This is the first time they ever met after hearing about each other for over 25 years! Janice lives here, and Sue lives in Colorado. Remember when I went to Sue’s daughter’s wedding last year? And Janice’s sons wedding on our big road trip last year? Anyway, these two are more than anyone could hope for in a good friend. I could call either one in the middle of the night and know they would be here if I needed them. We’ve watched our kids grow. Watched ourselves age. We’ve laughed, cried, whined and wined, lamented over things our kids have done…or not done. They are the. best. best. friends. ever.

Then there is my cousin:

My cousin, Chris the Girl. The one who just had her 40th birthday! Not sure what caused us to click as cousins, –and she’s a tad bit younger– but we’ve stayed close over the years. She babysat my boys when they were little, she has listened to me complain about stupid little things and big old things. She’s always there with a smile. She’s beautiful, isn’t she? Thanks for always being there for me, Chris.

And last, but certainly not least…my sister, Cheri.

Seen here in a rare occurrence where she’s not making a face at me when I try and take her photo. As much as we’ve driven each other nuts at times over the years, she is the one person I know I can call and she’ll make me laugh…no matter what. She gets me. She gets being a mother of boys. She’s got my back. . .and, yes, I’ve heard she looks just a tad like me…

So, thanks for putting up with my emotional ramblings. I will get around to fixing up some more wedding photos…of the 640 that SuperGuy and I took…it’s taking a bit to sort through them all. I have stories to tell and fun things to share. It just takes time.

Who is that special person in your life? The one who is always there for you and gets you through the tough times?

The Boys are Back in Town

by Kay~Kacey on 6/12/2010

The boys are back in town! The boys are back in town! (you’ll be singing that now, right?) Anyway, my babies are all here for the wedding. We have big graduation party plans, The Magnificent Rehearsal Dinner ™ here in the pretty backyard, friends coming into town, a Father’s Day celebration to squeeze in there somewhere. It’s going to be a busy week!

I’m going to take a quick week’s break from blogging. It’s not the I won’t have lots I want to share with you…I just don’t think I’ll have time to blog it! So I’ll take my bazillion photos and be back on Monday, June 21. Well, I might pop in once next week if I need a break from the testosterone rampaging around here!

I might post some photos to Facebook, so keep an eye on me there.

Enjoy your week, my blogging friends!
