Happy Birthday Kraig, Chicken, Stacy, and Mackenzie

Thanks for being such great sisters and brother. THanks for always being there for me. And remember if you ever want to come out here to NY, it is an open invitation!!

When I am feeling home sick or bored. I know that I can talk to my family. Kenz has a great sense of humor, sick sometimes. SHe can always get you to laugh. STacy just had her 2nd baby. She is a terrific hair stylist. She is very sweet and a hard worker. She is worried about calling me on the east coast because of the different time zones, but any time is fine with me. Chicken and I are very close. She had Malynda to be an honorary flower girl at her wedding even though she was only 18 months old. We went to school together and had a ball most of the time. THere was even a time in Jr. High where I was taller than her. I don't have a picture of Kraig, but he is a very special person. He baptized me and always made it fun visiting him.

Three of my LITTLE SISTERS and older brother (even though they are all taller than me)had their birthdays this week. It has been very hard to be away from them. Stacy's was the 3rd, Kraig the 11th, Kenz the 20th, and Chicken (Brookie) the 28th. I wanted to tell them all how much I love them and appreciate them. And even though they are all taller then me, I can still beat them up. I wish I was out there to celebrate and party with you. But know that I love you very much.

A Great Visitor

When we took her to the airport, the whole wait was 15 minutes. Plattsburgh has a new airport where she flew out of. I swear she was taller than her plane. Ella was amazed with the airplanes.

WHen she left on the airplane, I think she was taller. E

We took her to Fort Crown Point. THis was a major fort during the French & Indian wars and the Revolution.

My childhood friend Angie came out to visit us for a few days. We took her all over our region of NY. It was nice catching up and relaxing. Thanks for coming Ang.
We took her to Lake Placid, NY. This was the home of the 1980 and 1935? Winter Olympics

Beauty Salon

The girls were doing mine and Keith's hair. It was a lot of fun.

My New Girl (at least the arm)

Malynda didn't want me to show a picture of her arm until it was out of the cast and bandages. She changed her earrings for the first time wearing the Hannah MOntana earrings Blake gave her for her birthday. SHe has healed so good. Her arm is a little crooked but we are happy she is feeling so good!!

major storm

We had a really bad storm. I took Malynda to a birthday party 20 minutes away and only had rain. Keith called me and told me what had happend. WHen we drove home we were detoured and weren't guarenteed if we were even going to be able to get there. The rain was so heavy you couldn't see 3 feet in front of you. We had 70-80 MPH winds, and the thunder was amazing. He said the only part that was missing was a tornado. Here are some pictures of some of the damage. We were out of power for about 20 hours.
