Can you say it ...... Could NOT have been better.....

I just want to start off by saying... I am so glad my parents were in Vegas this weekend or it would not have worked out. My mom and dad were thinking in the back of the head that this was a possibility but never really thought it was happening. First I thought we were going to be there too early...but pretty much everyone was there...Mom only recognized one car, so it kinda gave it away. But they were really surprised to see everyone there. All the brothers and sisters and most of the nieces and nephews... We had 50 people in total. The meal was great and I really think they enjoyed it. Toby made a video of all different kind of pictures...some were sad and lots were funny. The first set was set to Amarillo Sky. If you haven't heard that song...you really need to listen to it. It was actually written for my dad...and family.... Not exactly....but you wouldn't have noticed it if you didn't know. It really puts a song to the life of my family....and a great one for that... We had a cake made and then everyone visited for awhile and then we had to turn on the darn cowboy game. What a waste of time....But the whole event was GREAT and I really think everyone enjoyed the time and I know mom and dad really appreciated it....

On a sadder note, I did find out this weekend that my best friends grandmother passed away. So I stayed the night on Sunday so I could go to the Rosary (a prayer service that us Catholics do the night before the funeral) and then the funeral today. It was really a nice service and I just pray for her family left behind. I know she is in a better place.....but it is always hard for the people left behind....

Don't take for granted the days you have with your family. Going home this weekend...made me really homesick and realize that family and a small town is not replaceable....

Oh, I forgot to tell you. You have asked about where I got my blog. I hired Lindsay, at Splat Designs, to do it for me. I have seen some resently though that are really cute, too. They usually run anwhere from $25 to $60. The ones I came across resently were SO CUTE and they were only $25. Email me if you want her website. I can't remember it off the top of my head. If you want to look at Lindays stuff go to my sidebar, at the bottom, and click on Splat Designs. See ya!
