To Chris

It was nice to hear from you. Thanks for calling before you left. Just wanted you to know that you'll be in our prayers while your in Afghanistan. You were always a wonderful Uncle and friend to Devin and he still talks about you as his favorite teacher in Purto Rico. You really do have a knack with kids. We're all looking forward to your return and visit. So be safe and know that you have some pretty mighty protection around you. Here's just a few photos of the last time I saw you. It's so funny, Andre still had long hair, and so did Devin. I was still sick and skinny and the kids were all still short ha! We miss you and love you so much!

To all with LOVE

I know there are a lot of you that will have someone special to celebrate this day with. A day when we celebrate love! But there are others of us that may not be as thrilled when this day rolls around, but if we could all take time and try to get away from the idea of a "mushy couple and boyfriend/girlfriend" Valentines, and see it as a day far better then that, something that can last all year long. We all believe in love, right? You believe your family loves you and that you love So why not take this day to remind your family how much you appreciate then, tell your friends how much they mean to you, search for someone that could use some encouragement today and be there for them. But don't save it all for just today...keep on giving, keep on loving all year 'round! Even though you may not feel like you have any reason to celebrate, you can if you start looking outward instead of in. Love someone today and make their world a little brighter!....Oh and by the way.....I love you! xoxox

Love is the dance of life

3 other January birthday's!

I've already posted about my wonderful younger sister's birthday, but there are 3 more that I didn't forget, just didn't post about right away. Hope you can forgive me! So here they are:

First off was my dad Simon's birthday. It's been great to have the chance to work with this crazy dude for so long. He is a wonderful dad, friend and co-worker! Hope this year has many good things heading your way dad, Love you!

Next, my second to youngest sister Katrina turned 12. My... how this one has grown...literally! Ha, she's my look-a-like sis when I was a kid. But of course her own unique self. So cheery, caring and helpful! Look out for this one when she grows up.

And last but certainly not least, my oldest sister....Christina! It's been such a treat to live so close to you after all these years. Your an amazing person and I love the times we can spend together. I'm so thankful you found this wonderful fellow here beside you and I wish all the best for you two in the years to come. It's great to have a sister like you! xoxo
Now I believe January had the most birthday's for our family, all the other 14 of us are spread through out the rest of the year.... how to keep track I'll never know.

2009 Superbowl Sunday

I got to go visit friends on the 1st for my day off. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for relaxing and enjoying good company. We then heading out to watch the Superbowl at another friends house, it was a small group of us but lots of fun. It didn't seem like it would be exciting game at the beginning as the Cardinals were getting whipped but then in the 4th quarter things started happening...there was shouting, people sitting at the edge of their seats. But the Steelers had it in the bag the whole time. Amazing finish and job well done. Not to mention seeing history in the making with James Harrison making the 100 yard interception touchdown return! SWEET!
