Look What I Got In The Mail ~ I Won!!

I won again!! Well, really I won this first but it just took it longer to get here because it was sent by the publisher or someone else, not sure who.  I had orginally only won one book but because they where out of that book, I was sent two books. How lucky am I!!! 

I want to Thank Lynette Again!!!   Thank you Lynette!!   Check her out at Lynette at Crazed Mind.  She is Awesome!!!

NC State Fair ~ 2010

We have many fond memories of the NC State Fair. One of our first dates was to the fair. Gerald took his sisters to the state fair while I was home with a brand new baby girl, Angela. He took Angela to the fair when she was 5 because I felt it just wasn't a place I should or wanted to be 9 months pregnant with Emily. We took our girls when they were small, we've gone with friends and we have gone many times just with each other. This year we took our daughter Emily and grandson Bryson. We had a wonderful time!! Can't wait to go back again next year!!!

Lazy days laying on the grass in my front yard
Summer nights playing outside, tether ball and hiding go seek, my birthday parties

Happy Birthday to My Daughter ~ Angela

In honor of my oldest daughter's birthday, I thought I would post a few pictures of her.

This is me when I was pregnant with her in 1972

I don't know how you all do this but it took me and my husband hours to do this with the new editor.  There has to be a faster way!!!
Angela is a ninth grade high school English teacher, is National Board Certified and working on her master degree which she will finish this spring.
